We first discovered this restaurant during our stay two years ago (in a different location). and loved it for its fairly authentic Thai food. We made a point of finding its new location, and looked forward to the meal. The first disappointment was the location in a dreary path beside the Mira Hotel.. there were a few tables beside the...

I visit this restaurant every year, often more than once. It is consistently of a very high standard. Whether you go for the Thai dishes or the amazingly tender steak you will not be disappointed. I particularly love the fried prawns and the mussels as starters. The crispy beef tenderloin is great. This year the star dish was pork in... More

This is not just a top class restaurant offering Thai food at its best having been to Thailand and cooked by the owners wife who is Thai, but the best steaks ever (meat is selected & brought in from Kanartika by the restaurants owner) according to my partner who has tried various steaks throughout Goa & other parts of India...

Tucked away, down a busy side street in Calangute, is a little Thai restaurant. Beautifully authentic food in a lovely setting. We spoke to the owner as we tucked in to our delicious food as we were very curious when we heard his German/dutch accent. His wife is the main chef, a very respected lady in the industry, with numerous... More

I ordered some prawns with some sort of thai curry. It was a take away and i must say it had great taste. Im not a very big thai food fan but the things which i ordered were good. Its located on the main road so it doesnt have a great location but the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice.

We think that this is one of the best restaurants in Goa. Although more expensive than the other local restaurants it is still very good value for money. TheThai food is excellent but we have not tried any of the European dishes. The restaurant has been established for many years and is run by a German husband and Thai wife... More
