Visited this place after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Had to search for this place and was delightful after finally locating it. It is the last shack if you walk on the beach from britto's and it is easier to find it if you take the tito's lane, its on the left hand side. Must say lovely food. Sea Food is... More

Once again spend most days at this fab beach shack, and quite a few evenings too. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff they are so friendly & it's so nice to have a chat with them (when they're not too busy). Love the food especially the Monday night seafood BBQ but the local curries are also good. Will... More

Good food, friendly staff and a reasonably priced meal! There is nothing on first looks that distinguishes this shack from the others at Baga, but i'm definitely going back here for the food :)

Fresh caught seafood, check! A delicious meal with said fresh seafood, check! Friendly staff, check! A great view, check! Reasonably priced, check! Reddy and his team do a great job of making you feel like you are at a friend's restaurant on the beach. We enjoyed it so much during our week in Goa that we ate there three times.... More

After trying a couple of beach shacks, we landed in this one and then on we never had food anywhere else in Baga.. Good food, superb service by Michael here. Any time I visit Goa next, this is where I am going to come. We tried Masala fry prawns, Tawa fried King Fish, all is just lovely. Even veg punjabi... More

After having done some research on the eating joints in Baga, we decided to visit Shining Star, which seemed to have good reviews. We wanted to visit a shack with good food but one that was not overcrowded. Shining Star met with both the criteria. We had both our lunch and dinner at this place and I will thoroughly recommend...
