Had a reservation at this restaurant valantines day. My guest was vegetarian and the owner insisted that we both eat one or the other. Zero public relations knowledge. People. Like this do not deserve any accolades what so ever. Good food as he may have will take a back seat to his very poor conduct. Ended up eating at at... More

This was one of the best restaurants I've been in my trip to Portugal. The food was very good, and the waiters were extremely nice. I recommend it!

When we travel with my wife we always go to at least one Indian restaurant and this one is one of the best we've been to. Delicious food, quite expensive especially for Portugal but definitely worth it.

This little Indian restaurant is quite hidden by the side of the towering & imposing Crowne Plaza hotel. When we entered around 7.30pm on a Tuesday evening the restaurant was quite empty but soon started to fill up. The atmosphere is quite quiet, slow & subdued compared with UK restaurants. For starters we ordered some lamb Samosas which were really... More

Although I am not a fan of foreign cuisines while traveling, I was convinced by my better half and was more than happy to have eaten here. As we were traveling with our 9 month old the owner immediately gave us a bigger table and even took time to introduce himself, play with our daughter and share his and our... More

Não há que enganar. There is no mistake! Near Sheraton and former Meridian hotel, Mendi is by far the best quality Indian restaurant in Porto. It is not cheap. Quality has a price. Rather small but cozy, this family restaurant has a fantastic and superb service. Not luxurious but rather practical and very friendly. I am a client for at... More

We were here for 2 dinners and we enjoyed both the meals. The service was just great. One does get the feeling that it might be a little overpriced, but I guess the taste and the service make up for it. I would recommend it highly. PS: if anyone from the restaurant is reading this review, then the only thing... More

I came to this restaurant with a group of girl friends to have dinner. Although I booked a table, it had plenty of free tables. The space is cozy and in the evening the reddish hue of the walls makes it even warmer in terms of colour. For starters we chose Naan bread, seasoned cooked onions and vegetable samoosas. For...
