My favorite Indian restaurant in Rio! / O meu restaurante indiano preferido no Rio!

After living in England for a year and becoming obsessed with Indian food, I knew I had to find an Indian restaurant here in my hometown. I've been going to this restaurant for about two years now and I have to say it never disappoints! The food is great (it can be as spicy as you like) and the staff is really friendly and polite. There are no explicitly vegan options on the menu, but they have a vegetarian section that can be made vegan on request, which is amazing. Highly recommend!
Depois de morar na Inglaterra por um ano e ficar apaixonada pela comida indiana, sabia que tinha que encontrar um restaurante de comida indiana aqui no Rio. Frequento esse restaurante há dois anos já e nunca me decepcionei. A comida é otima (ela pode ser o quão apimentada quanto você quiser) e os funcionários são muito simpáticos e educados. Não há nenhuma opção explicitamente vegana no cardápio, mas eles têm uma seção de pratos vegetarianos que podem ser transformados em veganos se você pedir para o garçom. Recomendo demais!!

Legitimately Indian!

This place is delicious!!
I lived in India for many years, and am most often than not very disappointed at Indian places, especially in Brazil, where the food tastes nothing like traditional Indian food.
This is not the case here!! Their food is delicious and, dare I say, even better than a lot of places in India!
Their vegetarian menu is extensive and they are willing to make every dish vegan/
Very worth it
