I was there earlier this month, during the monsoons and even off season the quality and service was exceptional. Sam and his staff are friendly and if you desire anything from aloo pananthas to roast chicken, you'll be amazed at how good it is. Must try!

We met Sam and his wonderful food 9 years ago and since then we're his fans. Every year we go to Majorda to meet him, his family and his lovely food. We really enjoy the silence of the Majorda beach and the taste of Sam's kitchen. Try his famous rice with candies as the side-dish to any of his seafood... More

The service was exceedingly slow and food very average. Unfortunately was one of the very few shack's open for next to Zuri (where we stayed) so by default we ended up eating there quite often.

The best restaurant with excellent food,service, ambience and value for money. Through my observation and speaking to Sam I would like to highlight a few aspects that have exceeded my expectation. Firstly the quite location where the beach is not crowded with shacks you can easily spot SAMs. The colourful sun beds with matching comfy cushions just catches your eye... More

We have been to Goa many times and have had meals at most places on Majorda beach but our favourite place is SAMs Goan Beach Shack, now in the Gonsua area of Majorda. The food is absolutely brilliant, cooked and served to each individuals liking. The service is first class from a very likeable team, they can't do enough for... More
