To start with, the Calcutta restaurant is a real institution in the Bairro Alto and probably one of the best – if not the best – Indian restaurant in Lisbon. What’s his secret? Only the freshest products are used to prepare all of the dishes on the menu: everything is made each day (I can confirm!), no days off for Hiren. From 9am the cooks start working to prepare a good hundred or so delicious samosas (chamuças in Portuguese).


My favourite dishes are the tikka masala and Tandoori chicken (by the way, did you know that Tandoori is indian for oven?). The dishes are indeed classical, but delicious when well prepared. And for fragile eaters, you can ask to have milder dishes, or even ask for them without spice.  Hiren – who never stops smiling  - and his wonderful team serve up dishes in a friendly, warm and informal manner. As the prices are reasonable, clients are mostly young. The wine list is very carefully put together (a rarity in Indian restaurants) and Hiren loves to serve good Portuguese wines at unbeatable prices.


Come on behalf of livinginlisbon.com, and Hiren might graciously serve you a Calcutta shot: to be downed in one go in order to round-off the meal well.
