An absolute gem of a restaurant. Neither my wife or I are vegetarian, but we just loved the food here. It's not just a great meal you get at Jalsa, its a really authentic, homely, relaxing experience.

Visited this restaurant after hunting for a good vegetarian restaurant in Goa. It was great to be here. Ambiance is good. Food is served leisurely without any hurry. We had dinner very slowly and for 2 hours. Menu is a long list and taste of each item is very nice.

Jalsa is my favourite vegetarian restaurant in Goa. When I am in Goa, I always stay at Resort Rio and have at least a couple of meals at this fantastic restaurant. Jalsa, in my view, is getting better and better and this time round we also tried their Royal thali which was absolutely outstanding. We had the delicious Kachori, khandvi,... More

Traditional Kathiawadi food served in style. Authentic Gujarati dishes like rotlo, kadhi khichdi, Puran puri, different vegetables, pickles, chas (lassi) etc. Will visit again when in Goa.

Jalsa Vegetarian - 3 times food award - excellent quality Gujrati food, freshly prepared, unusual decor & setting - well worth a visit whilst in Goa. Highly recommended - I personally ate there 5 times during my stay despite being a non-veg. 😃😛

We ate at this restaurant during our stay at Resort Rio. The atmosphere in this restaurant is superb- with low level seating and amazing wall carvings and decor.
