Are there any Indian or Pakistani restaurant.

Are there any authentic Indian or Pakistani restaurants in Luanda?

There is one Indian restaurant is Benguela but it's not worth going so I prefer Lebanese foods.
Being a Pakistani I am also very desperate to eat Pakistani foods.


There are 2 Indian Restaurants that I know of, upto July, 2012. If there is any change since then, I am not aware.

Palm Beach
Ilha de Luanda

Palm Beach on the Ilha


Its very dificult to find Indian restaurants in Luanda since demand is low , however most restaurants can add nice ingredients for you. 

Portuguese food is very  nice and full of flavours/herbs such as: Garlic, pipiri, caril, black/white Pepper, mint, salsa, cominho etc.

I would recomend Indian/Portuguese similar foods such as:
Caril (Just ask chef to add extra pipiri),
Galinha Assada/brasa com picante  (grill chicken - mild/hot),
Cod Fish - griled or boiled  ( Bacalhao a Brás).
very similar to Indian Food.
Galinha ao forno com arroz ( rosted chicken with Rice or vegies )
Garopinha ( Silver Rock Fish sure)
Posta de Cherne (Giant rock Fish)

Most restaurants in Marginal and Ilha are nice:
(Sea front)

Restaurant/esplanada Hotel presidente 
Restaurant Local
Palm Beach
Miami beach
Café del Mar

16km towards South of Luanda
(Talatona, Benfica, Belas, Nova Vida. ........):

Restaurante Gril (belas shopping)
Restaurante Gril ( Nova vida )
Cantinho  do Socego (Close to Academica Driving School in Talatona)

If you like nice deserts maybe tray:

. Pudim de leite (milk pudim)
. Mouse de maracujá ( soft granadilha mouse)
. Bolo de laranja ( Orange Cake)
. Arroz doce com canela  (Sweet Rice flavoured with cinnamom)


Hello everyone,

Perhaps you could all recommend these venues in the Restaurants in Luanda section of the business directory. Others might find it helpful to have some good places to eat in Luanda.

Many thanks  :top:
