This was close to our hotel but it is worth looking for, it's quite small and the service is a bit slow. The food was freshly cooked so it is worth waiting for. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food good and not too expensive.

We tried to go here for dinner one Friday night and were told there was an hour wait, so a week later we made an eight o'clock reservation. The place was empty when we arrived, but filled up quickly and was packed by 9:00 pm. This restaurant is much smaller than the Indian restaurant we usually go to in Lisbon,... More

The owner was very friendly and attentive. The food was freshly prepared and very good. Very reasonable prices. We will be back and can recommend that place. It reminded us to our trip to Nepal.

I liked the personell working in the restaurant. Just did their job well. Only disturbing thing was the TV that was turned on. It's a moment of rest for me to have dinner, and be excluded from every kind of input from outside. That's the only thing which was disturbing. Glass smelled not good, even though the quality of the... More

My photo here is terrible, however, I would say this is one of the finest Indian meals I have every had. four of us for dinner, not many other in the restaurant made us worry. Don't you worry! Service and food was excellent! We had chicken vindahlo, chicken korma, lamb curry and lamb tikka masala. Plus raita and roti. All... More

This is the best Indian food I've had in Lisbon, by far. Great curries, very good tandoor dishes and Indian breads, very nice staff and great value. You can't go wrong with Lumbini. Forget the stereotypical Indian restaurants at Bairro Alto, you'll be much better here.

Thank tisnado
