Good Thai food

A very pleasant restaurant with good service. Staff helpful in explaining menu. Attention to detail, presentation and the taste was excellent. Good place to eat although a little bit more expensive.

Very enjoyable meal at a comfortable and friendly restaurant. The owner is helpful, and offers good advice without being intrusive. This was the only restaurant we visited twice for dinner during our 14 night stay in Goa. The Red Thai Curry was superb, better than any we had in Thailand three years ago, and the shared starter was bang on.... More

I stayed at the Mira Hotel and decided to eat at the Oriental after having good reviews of the steaks there. I was recommended a dish each day by a person I presume was the Head waiter, every meal was freshly prepared and all were excellent. Service was polite and friendly. The location is not the best as guests from... More

The food is absolutely yummy, the service polite and attentive. A restaurant that stimulates the taste buds and makes you just wait for it to open. It has just opened for the season :)

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
