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!

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.

Execelent nepalese and indian food! Nice and cozy ambience, optimal location even if a little bit outside the tourist area, great service and the prices are very cheap. You can have different kinds of meet, a variety of prawn dishes and vegetarian food. You can choose a level of spice for your dishes and also have a discount on takeaway!... More

After months of craving Indian food, this place did not let me down. The food was delicious, prices good, and great service. We ate saag paneer, lamb vindaloo, vegetable korma, naan, raita, and grilled salmon for my two year old. Also, we had a Nepalese beer that was great too!

If you want a change from bacalhau (excellent as it is) you could do worse than have a chicken tikka masala at the Lumbini. Very nice at about 12 euros. The staff are courteous and attentive, speaking English.
