Description: Palms of Goa is a unique Indian restaurant, serving distinctly Goan cuisine. The history of this special branch of cooking reflects Goa���s Indian and Portuguese heritage - the main ingredients being coconut and spices, creating a flavoursome and distinctive taste. Located on London���s bustling New Cavendish Street, Palms of Goa is a popular place for business lunches and after-work meals. The rich red interior and delicious, healthy food make the experience of dining here a memorable one, and our favourite dishes include the Lamb Xacutti, a Goan dish prepared with coconut, vinegar and hot spices, and the restaurant���s renowned Pumkin (sic) Curry. Palms of Goa has been in business for over thirteen years, and is a favourite spot for Soho diners.

Nice Saturday night curry just opposite the lovely Charlotte Street Hotel Fish Thali, prawn Dhansak, Peshwari nan, mushroom pillau rice all very good. Nice house white wine too. Friendly service plus nice crowd of other diners. Home cooked feeling. And for London very good value.

We went to Charlotte Street for a family dinner (3 people) without having a precise idea about where to go exactly. It was getting late (around 10 pm) so we decided to trust our instinct and went for Palms of Goa. We were not disappointed and ended up paying about 25 £ each for a wide taste of Indian cuisine....

Best curry so far in London. Ok so London is not blessed with great Indian restaurants but really enjoyed this simple, clean, friendly Goan based restaurant, and very friendly service. Highly recommend the Goan chicken curry.

I tried to make a reservation for a table at this place but the person taking reservations was terribly rude. He slammed the phone down, not just once but twice! Will never visit this place. If I could give it 0 stars, I would! I can't believe I was looking forward to trying this place.

I ordered a dish I've ordered in every single Indian restaurant I've been to: chicken tikka masala. It's a dish that an Indian restaurant has no excuse in getting wrong. The dish turned out horrible! It was sour, watery, and tasteless... Like it was 3 days off. Asked the waiter about it, waiter said 'nothing's wrong with it'. I said... More

Visited them for dinner on 20th September , we actually were searching for " the curry leaf" but could not find it hence decided to go to this place and were very happy with the decision. It is a small restaurant but they did not have high chairs for kids hence it was a slight let down for me. We... More

This slightly café-ish restaurant is the best Indian food I have ever tasted. Nan bread, aubergine bahji and lemon rice are absolutely outstanding, all the other dishes are extremely good. It's a little bit cramped and noisy BUT THE FOOD!!!!!

3 points noted: 1. Excellent tasty food and delicious choices of Lassi drink 2. Friendly & Courteous service 3. Quantity of the portion could have been a bit larger for the money charged. All in all a decent place to dine.
