An intimate restaurant with a quiet unassuming proprietor. The quality of the food was good and we really enjoyed the flavours in all of the dishes we ate. Great value for money.

In the shadow of Lisbon's premier tourist attraction - should be over priced and poor! Excellent Goan currys (as a Brit pork rarely features) - great flavours, friendly host (first appearances clearly wrong!) and a bill that was modest at worst.

We went here on recommendation from the Rough Guide and were pleased with the choice. We haven't been to Goa but the food was believably Indian-influenced-by-Portugal and very tasty with it. The Indian sausage curry was great. Informal but friendly service. Not expensive (mains 9...More
