One of the best recommendations you can get

For anyone who likes indian food, this restaurant is amazing. Owners are vegan, they understand the concept, and if you don't know what to order, they'll help you - and I've never not liked a food recommendation from them.

Pros: Tasty food, Good portions, Nice staff

Cons: Sometimes, it can be too loud with the music

5 stars: Amazing/increíble

Fuimos a cenar y el trato fue inmejorable. Personal muy atento y amable, con recomendaciones de los platos. Toda la carta está con su etiqueta y había mucho dónde elegir tanto entrantes, platos principales y postre, que por cierto, nos sorprendió gratamente el postre ya que está hecho con lenteja y está caliente y muy bueno. Sin duda repetiremos

Pros: La extensa carta con su etiqueta , Tienen terraza y admiten perros, Personal muy atento y amable

Some of the tastiest vegan Indian food we have ever had

The owner was very knowledgeable about vegan options and offered us more dishes than those on the menu. We had a fried cauliflower starter which was delicious. For main, we opted for a banana blossom and coconut curry, a dahl and a cauliflower and pea curry. We had rice and puris and a special dessert. The flavours were fabulous. Definitely amongst the best Indian food we have ever had. Well worth seeking this restaurant out.

Pros: Very flavoursome Vegan dishes, Enthusiastic owner who understood veganism well, Good choice

Cons: A little expensive, although worth it , A bit out of the way.

One of the BEST dinner experiences we ever had! Truly unforgetable.

(Just to clarify - I would instantly give 5 stars but due to Happycow's rating rules this was technically not possible since they are not fully vegan/vegetarian.)

We had dinner here for my mother’s birthday and it was sooooo incredible! They even surprised us with a specially decorated table along with other surprise birthday treats.

As some of us eat vegan and gluten-free we were so happy that they were amazingly accommodating and made sure we neither felt left out nor had to cut back on exploring rich, authentic Indian flavors. They even seem to have created some veganised dishes on a wimp just so that we could experience a few similar special dishes than our non-vegan family. It was fabulous - the kind of trustworthy and knowledgable support any vegan wishes for when visiting a non-vegan place!

The owner came by a lot and took very good care of us, we alredy learned so much more about the Indian cuisine talking to her.

Everyone absolutely loved it and my friend even said THIS WAS THE BEST DINNER EXPERIENCE HE EVER HAD.

The location has a lot of atmosphere and I can imagine how wonderful the outdoor and rooftop space must feel in summer time.

(The only thing we regret is not giving a higher tip since we simply miscalculated upon paying 🙈)

We will definitely come back and show this place to friends and family when we are in Portugal again for holidays!

Pros: Mouth-watering, authentic, creative Indian cuisine, Went above + beyond for an unforgetable experience, Soooo accommodating for glutenfree + vegan options

Simply amazing

One of the warmest, most welcoming and beautiful Indian restaurants I've been to. Perfect for a romantic dinner with lots of vegan options and lovely staff.

So good.. we went twice!

We really enjoyed UKI. The first evening I had the gobi Manchurian (spicy! ❤️), roti, and the gobi matar keema. The next evening I really loved the aloo bhurji and poori. The staff was very attentive and the hostess and chef were wonderfully friendly. Highly recommended! Lots of delicious menu items marked as vegan.

Pros: Marked vegan items, Excellent staff

Top notch

This has to be one of the best Indian meals I have ever had, I’m from Birmingham in the UK and I’ve had a lot.

Our party of 5 had the tikka masala, Railway Lamb, chana masala and Tadka Dhal. All meals were amazing.

The star meal of the evening was Manchurian Cauliflower, it was worth the visit just for that, you must have that, you won’t be disappointed.

The restaurant was great, spacious and a little quirky but what made it more special was that the staff and owners were all fantastic, so friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended

Pros: Plenty of vegan options , Helpful staff

So the food we got was tasty and different to other indian restaurants we've been to. Vegan options are clearly labelled. That's why I'd day 4 Stars.

Service was overall friendly. At the beginning the Chef came to our table and offered us to select some dishes for us according to our taste. Be aware that this option may come with costs you're not aware of because you are not told the prices. A little bowl of rice as a side already costs 4-5€, bread 4€.
We picked something from the menu although the Chef tried to talk us into taking his option.
Although I ordered my food not spicy and my boyfriend his plate spicy, both were really spicy. Make sure to clarify this before!

Side note: They also have an aquarium with too many fish in the restaurant.

Pros: Good taste

Cons: Pricy, Aquarium, Maybe level of spicyness

Unexpected Delight

We were looking for a coffee shop and found this restaurant instead. The food was incredible. Service was outstanding. I had a spicy cauliflower appetizer and an okra dish with rice. They made me vegan poori for my bread and it was piping hot. My friend got a special lemonade made with mint and cumin. Vegan food was clearly marked, but some nonvegan dishes were marked vegan because they could be made vegan. The staff was very knowledgeable about properties of foods and we received some education.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Knowledgeable staff, Outstanding flavor combinations

Cons: Not entirely vegan

5/5 - An incredible experience

Although it’s not a fully vegan/vegetarian place, it’s very welcoming (the restaurant itself, the staff) & there’s a lot of vegan/veg dishes. The staff was kind enough to promptly ask if we were vegan or had any sort of special diet. The food is divine. Will come back!

Authentic Indian food

I eat here regularly and am never disappointed. There are many vegan options on the menu and the chef and his team understand veganism and, as others have said, can veganise dishes or make something special to order. The food is really authentic and the chef takes time to explain the origin of the dish, the spices used and even the traditional time it is eaten - I think it gives you a great dining experience. It's one of the few places in Algarve where dosas are served and there are always specials to try.

Pros: Authentic and delicious, Lovely staff, A lot of options

My favorite Indian food

United Kitchens of India has the best vegetarian options when looking for spicy Indian food. The owner’s wife is vegetarian so no wonder he excels every time.

Pros: Spicy food according to your palate, The best Indian in my opinion, Seating by the pool
