Restaurants, Indian Santa Maria Maior
Fotografia: Arlindo Camacho

This Indian restaurant in a first floor at the Praça da Figueira serves food with a merciless disregard for those with a low tolerance of spicy stuff. Sure, not every dish will leave you sweating, but if you tell them you are up for some hot food, they'll be glad to acquiesce. The shrimp curry is a must, with nan bread to go along, but first order the samosas (among Lisbon's best). Wash it all down with Indian beer – you will definitely need something cold to pass the time while waiting for a table.

Time Out tips:

– Yet more curry: try the lamb.

– Yet more drinks: try the mango lassi (yogurt shake).

– Yet more appetizers: try the peshawary nan (bread with raisins and cashews).
