I enjoyed the food by quality, by cooking and the services. Remember Sattya, the server with his smiling face, even today...

The worst ever restaurant I have ever seen in my life. Poor service....Price doesnt deserve to the quality.. Very low quantity too.... If you order a biriyani, then they won't provide raitha, gravy and all along with the biriyani...we have to order seperately and the price of the raitha is 80/- Rs and only biriyani (without gravies) 300/- Rs.... Attitude... More

We are deposited just behind this shack from our courtesy beach bus from our hotel so we were captured by Sam and skilfully persuaded to take free beds in front of the shack. Once they have got you, you are served drinks and overall tab is kept going until you decide to leave. The restaurant itself is not very comfortable... More

This must be the best place to eat on the beach in Goa . We were introduced to Sam and his super team by Ray and Yvone (see review further down) the food they produce is amazing especially given the facilities they have (or lack of ) Ask Sam to cook you a whole fish you will not regret it... More

We went there during evening snacks time and ordered some vegetarian dishes as my wife does not eat non-veg and when the sandwiches and rolls came from the kitchen, we already had the sandwich, but when we were going to try the wrap, we noticed a prawn leg and complained to the waiter and they confirmed that the chef had...

Agreed that operating 2 menus with different prices depending on nationality is unfair and disrespectful to the guests. It must be upsetting for those British tourists who supported Sam through a very difficult season to learn of this practice. However, please be aware Sam is not the only shack that operates in this manner.The shack nextdoor has 1 menu which... More

We have been going for 9 years now and always return to Sams shack. From the 1st day we arrived Sam and his team have always looked after us and provided excellent service. The food is amazing and well priced. Would not eat anywhere else on the beach. Be seeing you next season Sam get our beds ready.
