Been passing this place in the car and never stopped to go in. I finally had a look at the menu online and it ticked many boxes food-wise. All of our favourites from the Chinese and Indian in one menu(!!) We arrived and the outside...decor was beautiful. So sophisticated and classy, very Vale Do Lobo. We went inside and the interior was even better. Gorgeous decor, incredibly modern and stylish with Indian and Chinese influence. I was gutted to see so many tables unoccupied. It was very quiet. They guided us to our table outside next to the pool. Oh my god it was so so so beautiful and relaxing. The outdoor bar was gorgeous. The setting was perfect. I just couldn’t believe that the restaurant wasn’t packed out!! Our sever was so lovely, I cannot remember her name. She was so sweet, kind and attentive and couldn’t do more for us. The food was the best food I’ve EVER eaten in Almancil, and I’ve been coming here multiple times a year for 24 years. The sharing starter was gorgeous. Best prawn toast and chicken pakoras I’ve ever had. The tikka Marsala for my main was 10/10. The naan and rice, so beautiful and fresh. We also recommend the Korma, crispy chilli beef (UNREAL) and the aromatic duck and pancakes. We had a jug of sangria, very reasonably priced at €18. I could not fault the food, the service or the setting. I just wish the place was packed as it would provide more atmosphere, but that is no fault of the restaurant’s. Will be coming back here at least once every time now. Don’t walk, RUN to this restaurant.More

We had a fantastic experience from the moment we parked until the time we got back into the car. There is plenty of parking outside the restaurant. We were greeted at the door by an extremely friendly lady who showed us to our table. There...was a great selection of drinks to choose from which came quickly with a very extensive menu. It was great to have the choice of food from across Asia. The staff were all really friendly and we’re happy to change a couple of things on the menu to please the younger members of our party. We chose our food which came in good time. There food was beautiful from the presentation, the aromas all the way through to the taste. There was no pressure to rush the food and were made to feel relaxed. When leaving we were seen it off the restaurant by the same lady that greeted us and wished a good night and safe journey. We will definitely be returning to try more of the gorgeous dishes.More

It’s a very big disappointment, very small portions of many dishes: dumplings, it could at least be 6 pieces, then we waited over 20 min for a small ball of noodles soup with a few noodles but lots of chicken balls. After that we ordered...lamb dish and 15 min later we got a big shrimp dish, then waiting time again to get the right order witch was big but only with a few pieces of dry lamb. To be honest everything what we got tasted ok. Overall still annoying and disappointing visit.More

We also visited early September and both visits were wonderful. This is a bit of a hidden gem, the restaurant is beautiful, we sat outside by the pool in September and inside now in November and both areas are lovely. The menu is extensive offering,...Indian, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian, we’ve had Chinese, Indian & Malaysian and all dishes were wonderful, so full of taste and very authentic. The service is also second to none. Highly recommended!More
