The Sun and Moon have opened another restaurant in Benualim in addition to the beach shack. Situated just outside the Royal Goan Beach Club and the Taj Exotica the small restaurant is equally as good as the shack on the beach (except the toilet facility!) Food is excellent and the service great service.

We've got to know the owner Sanjay very well and in recent years, his wife Meena. They, and all the staff make you feel so welcome. We have tried many delicious curries and... More

We returned to Benalim again after a 3 year break. The Sun and Moon is as good as ever. They still serve the best prawns I've ever eaten. The service was attentive and friendly. We booked a table for our wedding anniversary and they even gave us a card, knowing that we ate there often during our honeymoon. They made... More

This is a well run better end restaurant serving excellent Indian food with a great atmosphere, the welcome is professional and friendly with nicely presented tables and cotton napkins. I have a problem recommending any particular dish because every time we went here it was excellent, good clean standards throughout well worth a visit

While the Kingfisher is a great bet anytime, if you are at the Sun and Moon Restaurant, I say go for the Pina Coladas. I made the brave mistake of ordering them before I considered that the ice may not be sanitary. Luckily, the drink was amazing and I can objectively say it was the best Pina Colada I had... More

We went to the Jazz Night on our first Saturday in Benaulim and had a great night. The entertainment was varied - not just jazz but a lot of 60s music and standards. As usual the food was excellent.
