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.

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!!

This restaurant may be good for say south Indian food, but we found North Indian food to be just average. One may try any other food here but not North Indian food. Both preparation and the price are not good.

I won't advice anyone to consider eating north Indian cuisine here or their Panjim branch. Even basic south Indian dishes were burnt and tasted awful. Consider Satkar opposite Bombay Bazaar in Panjim.
