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 dined at this restaurant Dec 30th 2013 and have only good things to say about it. The staff was amazingly friendly and very eager to make us satisfied. They remembered to point out at all occasions that we can eat as much as we want to. We were not very experienced with thali at that point but it sure... More

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. The staff are dressed in traditional long suits with turbans. However, what makes this restaurant stand out is the amazing food. The varieties kept coming from savoury dishes to sweet ones followed... More

We went to the restaurant after seeing an Ad which said it has received Times Food Award for the best vegetarian Restaurant in North Goa. I disagree with times and most of the writers here.

My wife and I were in Goa on our honeymoon, when we dined in at Jalsa. The restaurant has its own ambiance inside Rio, giving you a royal feel. It so happened that we were the only guests that evening, which was when we learnt that the restaurant mostly operates on reservations. The manager and each of the serving members... More

This was our second visit to this fabulous restaurant. Amazing food, hospitality and service and as with our first visit, we were not let down. To begin with we were served tasty "kachumber" salad with kachoris, khandvi and absolutely mouth watering Rajasthani dhoklas ! The main consisted of rajasthani kadhi with pakoras, 4 types of curries, puran puris, theplas, bhakri... More
