We had dinner here on a Sun in Apr-15 and the service and value were notable! We’d wholeheartedly recommend! (We had the 9.95 quid three-course dinner deal each and an extra Masala Dosa – which was fantastic!) Locale is convenient, just near the Shambles at the top of Fossgate, around the block from the local bus exchange on Piccadilly

We came to this restaurant for a leisurely Sunday lunch. The food was excellent - one of our group has Goan ancestry and she vouched for the authenticity of the cuisine.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting or living in York. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Extremely wonderful food and so tasty! Something different to your normal Indian meal. Bonus of 15% discount for students, teachers etc All in all a fantastic evening was had by my partner and I. Thank you

I recently had an excellent meal here. It was a bit different to the run of the mill menu and I appreciated that. Portion size was big! The staff were friendly. I'd definitely recommend it.

Went for a meal on a Saturday night at Viva Goa. Used by Gourmet Society card which got us 2-4-1 main course. The Korma and Madras we had were very good. Moreover they ask you how hot you would like your particular curry so we could make it perfect for our tastes. The Saag Aloo, Naan Bread and Plain Rice... More
