Good choice of Gujarati items in thali. We chose limited thali which was INR 700 per thali. Unlimited thali is for INR 1100+taxes. There is not much of the difference as far as number of items are concerned except few deserts and farsan excluded. Believe me limited thali is just more than sufficient and really no need to spend extra... More

When vegetarian food is this good you don't need meat - excellent selection of well but not over spiced food - a must for any non-indian to try.

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
