Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to this restaurant for lunch. Inside it smelt of urine. Food was extremely spicy and tasteless. We found hair in the dhal. Don't be fooled it is a Bangladeshi restaurant, they call it an Indian restaurant to fool people. Would never go to...this restaurant again.More

We had lunch and my wife asked gluten-free meal. She had king prawns. The meal tasted good and she was happy. Then we walked back home. After 1,5 hours she got symptoms normally related to gluten and soon everything came up. According to the restaurant...everything was gluten-free and fresh ingredients. This was the last visit to this restaurant.More

Ok good, good service, unfortunately not authentic Indian food, the cook and owners are from Bangladesh. The Masala House next to it is authentic and delicious.

I never expected to find a good Indian restaurant in Portimao, but here it was. We had lunch there in October 2022. We were walking around Praia da Rocha, looking for a good place to have lunch and happened upon this restaurant which had a...patio service and great Indian food. Very reasonably priced, delicious curries with ample servings, and great service.More

It was the best food we had during the entire stay in the Algarve. Delicious food, excellent customer service and above all very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to all who want to have a taste of curry during their stay in Portimao.

We were craving Indian food after eating lots of Portugese and we will definitely be back again. The food was delicious, service from the owner/waiter was very good. He even changed the mango juice for free as I was told it would be fresh but...sadly wasn’t. No big deal. If you dare, try the Vindaloo, it’s yummy 🌶! The garlic naan was very good too.More

When eating here, you’re in for an entire experience. The food is obliviously delicious, served in traditional Indian pots and plates. The prices are also reasonable. The waiters are very professional. Please show some love by being a generous tipper. Bon appétit!
