Royal Rajasthani food for vegetarians,Jalsa at Resort Rio

This is one place where I feel like royalty. From the seating to the never ending delicacies put out on the platter, it can be difficult to cope up. Being rated one of The Top 50 restaurants in Goa, I could use my ‘The Goan Foodie Privilege Card’ and get a 15% discount for the entire table. I... read more

Clean sand and good food and drinks near by, for a short price you can get a sand bed for the day. Just enjoy the sun sea and air

Taste, presentation, ambience and service are truly appreciable. Jalsa is among the very few fine-dining vegetarian restaurants in Goa which maintain a separate kitchen. And though, menu is fixed in "thali" the variety is so sumptuous that we had four consecutive dinners with them and enjoyed different delicacies each time. Further, the way Kuldeep and Nitin run that place, it... More

Food was amazing and Nitin our waiter was fantastic. I can't even remember how many courses there were but the food seemed to keep on coming. I've never had carrot as a dessert before, now it's my favourite!

The Food ! Awesome. Service second to none. Seating in Jalsa is bit uncomfortable. I had a very posh dress and high heels on. Difficult, so dress casual.

Liked the food and the presentation...Beautiful ambience, courteous staff, great menu on the table, well deserving of the times foods award...Right from the starters to dessert, loved every single item they had to offer on the table... I am sure even the hardcore meat eaters will not mind turning into veggies once they visit Jalsa...

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
