We've been to O Indiano before but had read on Trio Advisor that there crown as top Indian restaurant had been stolen. We stayed loyal and weren't disappointed. We had poppadums, chutneys, onion Bhaji, 2 mains with pilau rice 3.5 beers and a half bottle of wine for 41.5 €. Quality food and quality service. Forget the rest and eat... More

The best Indian in Carvoeiro by a long shot. Ask for the chef's special for something different but it is all good. Staff are very, very courteous and helpful. Do not go anywhere else.

Had a takeaway from O Indiano and was not disappointed, one of the best curries i've ever had. the bhajis were very tasty, and the portion size of the main dishes was large (lots of chicken). my partner is a BIG curry fan and was blown away by this place. would definitely recommend.

Really fab naan breads alongside a lovely Goan fish curry. Great service and all very tasty. Stick to Indian food (silly comment?) as we saw some customers having problems with chips etc. We would definitely go again!

Not much to look at from the outside but this is a little gem. Prompt service and good curries. Starters of onion bhaji and chicken samosa followed by chicken rogon josh and Goan fish curry with plain naan. Reasonable wine selection. The food was 14 Euros a head.

We first came to this restaurant 12 years ago and each time we visit Carvoeiro we eat here at least twice a week! The food here is better than most Indian restaurants back home! Delicious starters, fresh poppadoms, tasty curries where you can taste the freshness of the spices and ingredients and fluffy, buttery naans to die for, what more... More

Extensive menu, including a children's menu. onderful fresh curries, fantastic naan bread (recommend the peshwari naan), all washed down with ice cold beer. Very reasonable prices for great food.

I have just been for a trip to Carvoeiro with my wife - I arrived a day before my wife and decided to try O Indiano as I had read good reviews. I was certainly not disappointed! Very friendly and attentive staff, lovely food and the curries are served in special 'earthenware' pots which combine the dish with the curry... More
