Wandered into place accidentally and was very pleasantly surprised. The entrees were similar to our favorite Indian haunts at home, but the naan and condiments were worlds above.

We have been here several times. The buffet remains the same always. Don't go here if you are expecting authentic Nepal or Indian food. But I don't think they exist in Portugal. All the curries are mild, to fit the Portuguese preference. One interesting experience during the last visit. The waiter insisted when I was paying (I was paying for... More

I tried in for lunch. The buffet looked pleasant to the eye. They bring sauces to the table for spice or sweet. The sweet sauce dark brown is great. I tried it all. Amazing. The mushroom dish and chicken wraps were delicious excellent. The sweet sauce improved the taste of it all. And for 7.50 Euro it's recommended.

We had the buffet and thought all the food was very nice. The staff were extremely friendly and talkative and always made sure there was enough fresh food in the buffet for us. Overall we had an enjoyable evening.

The buffet was cold, there was little food in the trays. The server was nice and did bring us a fresh Nan. Too much food coloring in the CTM and it tasted like crap. Amazing they are able to get away with it.

Well, it's an indian buffet, that's something you really see that often in any other places, there's not a great range of food but the one they serve is in fact very acceptable! The staff is also friendly!

Was looking for some Indian food, and saw some good reviews for this place on Google and trip. I had the saag paneer, which had almost no cheese in it, not to mention, hardly any flavor. My wife had the butter chicken, which was decent. The naan bread was probably the worst I've ever had. The service was fine, but... More

Went there for the evening buffet. Quite a choice of nice dishes, but stays the same every day, so good to go from time to time. Certainly very good food for that price (8.50 €) but not very spicy and not warm enough. They should do something about keeping the dishes warm. Only thing we didn't like was the cold... More
