Food is delicious and can be made to your liking nothing is to much for them. Raj runs back and forth all day to keep us fed and watered, (lots of beer & cocktails), and still has time for a chat. We have been visiting the shining star for a few years now and would not consider another shack. We... More

We arrived in Baga expecting to stay just for one night and stumbled upon Shining Star. We met Raj who looked after us throughout, what a great guy! He provides the best service we have ever experienced and became a friend! Because of him we decided to stay an extra night in Baga, and enjoyed drinks, food and conversation on... More

In amongst all the bustle of over a dozen shacks, is Shining Star Beach Shack. It's probably the only reason we spent as much time in Baga beach as we did instead of traveling to Vagator or Arambol beaches. Ask for Raj - great host. Great service and open to customizing anything. Looked after us well during our week in... More

In my opinion the number one shack on Baga Beach. Tara, outstanding waiter and good food guide, big and little Santos, Davy and the rest of the staff are great with the customers and will do anything to help. Food here is always fresh and very tasty. This place is a must visit!!!

Had heard a lot about the food here and it lived up to the reputation. The Goan fish curry, prawn masala were really good. The red snapper steak was melt in the mouth. But the chicken was stringy although the pepper sauce was good. The place is nothing much to look at but all beach shacks are the same.

Been going on holiday to goa for years and always spent time at this shack. Complimentary sun beds, great service from the staff, good food well cooked and presented all make this a totally enjoyable experience. The shack is clean and well maintained. Toilet facilities are good and kept clean throughout the day. Massages are available £5 and are extremely... More
