Not much to look at from the outside but this is a little gem. Prompt service and good curries. Starters of onion bhaji and chicken samosa followed by chicken rogon josh and Goan fish curry with plain naan. Reasonable wine selection. The food was 14 Euros a head.

I have just been for a trip to Carvoeiro with my wife - I arrived a day before my wife and decided to try O Indiano as I had read good reviews. I was certainly not disappointed!

Good place to have a curry. Potato and cauliflower one was definitely not worth ordering. Naan was superb. Place was full on February evening when we dined there. Food could be a bit more spicy.
