Restaurant Recommendation: Madras Curry House, Torrox Costa
This family run restaurant opened earlier this year and serves the best Indian/Nepalese food I’ve ever tasted! The food is cooked by two uncles, one cooks the curry and the other tandoori with front of house run by Deepak and his aunt. They all speak English. Carry outs also available. Please please give it a try as business is very slow and they need support to succeed. Someone else said it’s the best Indian in Costa Del Sol! Try it and see for yourself. The restaurant is on the main N340 road through Torrox Costa at the Santander roundabout. Gail, Torrox Costa , kincraig25 @ gmail . com


Four Kittens for adpotion: were found at Torrox Costa rubbish bins, abandoned in an old fruit crate. They are all males and between 10 and 12 weeks old. Since 6 weeks they live in a foster home, but desperately need to find permanent homes. They eat dry food and use the Litter Box. They are very lovely and calmly kittens that love to play and being cuddled. We will help with sterilisation if and when they are old enough. More pics on request. If you can help, please contact:
