Small Portions

Well no complains about the taste. The portion sizes for the puri bhaji are very small. The bhaji comes in a plate within a plate. They even ask you if you need extra bhaji. The place is well kept and the pav bhaji is amazing.

Was forced to go here by my parents. Have vowed never to go back since they served me a cold dosa last time, Anyway decided to make the most of it and went with the vegetarian thali this time. Unfortunately was disappointed again.

Earlier navtara used to serve delicious south indian food, but now the quality of the same is dropped. Sometimes the place even stinks due to overflow of septic tank, Sometimes they even clean the septic tank when people are having their food :( These types of cleaning should be carried out once the restaurant is closed. Staff is very good,... More

Where does a vegan go when he feels hungry? Where do we all go for the Indian fast food when in Goa? Mr Carlos Tavora's concept - a place called the 'nine stars' - Navtara. Fast food, quick service, simple amenities and the menu too is nine starred. Take a look what is on offer. South Indian and fast food.... More

Walk into Navtara at Porvorim and you are greeted by a foul smell emanating from one of their gutters not cleaned for sure.The servers dont even greet you let alone seat you. The tables were unclean and there were cockroaches roaming freely over the tables,( Wonder if the Public Health officials ever take rounds to check ? ) However the... More

Visited Navtara twice enroute from South to North Goa. Stopped once for lunch and once for a snack and tea. The service both times was efficient and prompt. The thali was yummy!! Restaurant clean and not too crowded. Will not think twice about visiting again! Good job!!
