Good location, prompt service and an average price (not cheap nor over expensive) however the pizzas were a bit heavy on cheese so became very greasy but worst of all they don't use pitted olives meaning both me and partner nearly lost a tooth as there were rock solid olive pits hidden beneath the cheese. I thought for a moment... More

Against every traveler's instinct we decided to eat here. The menu was a very touristic one (both pizza and Indian dishes), the place was empty and looked a little deserted, but the food was excellent. We took two Indian vegetarian dishes and we enjoyed them both very much. Great value for money. Good place for vegetarians. We recommend siting at... More

This place was a hidden gem in Sintra. Menu was extensive, so much choice and food was delicious. Wine was also very good and fairly priced. Ambiance was good and staff very friendly. We enjoyed a very tasty meal for 2 people here and would recommend it highly to people who enjoy tasty Indian cuisine and relaxing evenings.

Sintra is beautiful but very touristy. Finding a good restaurant at a fair price is not easy. This place just hit the right buttons... Really good indian food, real Indian chef, good prices and excellent service. Could not fault this place, after eating at some mediocre restaurants in Sintra, this one just made us smile. Go for it, it is... More

The food had no flavour, very average. I also find it odd that it serves both Indian and Italian food, they would be better off focusing on one and making the flavours better. The outside courtyard under trees is pleasant enough, staff are very courteous.

Average at best. Indian and italian combination... Some of the food felt rewarmed. The taste in not authentic. If you really like indian food - better avoid

Had dinner in Bengal Tandoori after a long day roaming the nearby palace. The service was excellent and friendly and the food was fantastic. We ordered a Bhuna and a jalfrezi with garlic nan and friend rice. Legitimately the best Indian I've had in years, highly recommended!
