Description: At Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed downthe generations. Our menu takes inspiration from the beautiful palm fringed region of Goa (where my Ma learnt to cook) but also takes influences from other parts of India.Since its opening in 1993, we have won critical acclaim from many top critics & we take pride in the fact that we are a genuine family-run restaurant. Our mission has always been to serve tasty, fresh, unpretentious home-style cooking in a warm & friendly setting.Situated 2 minutes away from Putney British Rail & 5 minutes away from East Putney Tube it makes a perfect venue before a night on the town. We also offer a popular take-away & free local delivery service & a party catering service. We look forward to welcoming you to Ma Goa soon.

I visited Ma Goa on the 16th of October with my family I ordered chinni ran and wife ordered the prawn biryani and both the dishes were full of flavour the owner of Ma Goa Deepak Kapoor served me. He was very helpful and a very pleasant Young man. I'm looking forward to going back.

We waited for over forty minutes for starters, drinks even came late Two waiters were busy attending the back rather than us and two other tables in front. My wife knows the owner and tonight we felt ashamed

This was our third visit to this restaurant but unfortunately each time the experience has dropped in standard. The service was slow (at times painfully), the food although tasty was all sauce with no real substance and the extortionate charge of mediocre papadoms a bit too much to swallow. Not an authentic Goan.

We used to be regulars at Ma Goa when we lived down the road in Wimbledon. Now we have moved further away but we try and visit every year on our wedding anniversary and Ma Goa never disappoints. It is a fabulous family run restaurant - with great food. My favourite dish is the stuffed papards and my husband's the... More

The food was nice, not the best indian I've ever had, but interesting and different to more traditional indian. Perhaps it was my choices, but some of the... More

Putney lacks certain style of restaurants like a good curry house with style but this has it all. Good service with good knowledge of all the dishes. It's a family run restaurant with a friendly service and a good welcome. Food was excellent and was good value as the portions are good although the price is quite high but you... More
