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.

I was walking and seen this small restaurant empty, so decided to try cos is not common to see to many Goan Restaurants in London. I was surprised to see that all the other places on this street were very busy, but the Palms of Goa wasn't. The two young lads who were serving seem very lazy, and it... read more

We ate late (perhaps this is why the food was so bad?) and although there were 6 of us and the restaurant is tiny, we were seated straight away. I had the butterfly prawns to start....the prawns were nice, but the sauce they came in was bland and quite a gritty texture (?) I had the Chicken Madras for my... More

Down to earth curry house on Charlotte Street. Food OK, not too expensive. Lightening fast service with meal arriving very quickly after order placed and before finishing popadoms. Service charge not automatically added. Pleasant waiters. Nice artwork on the ceiling. Plenty of good pubs nearby for a pint before or after the curry. Close to Goodge Street underground, Tottenham Court... More

Excellent South Asian food. The fish is divine. Nothing like most other Indian restaurants in the area. Staff are particularly nice and attentive.
