“its's a cliche...but kudos to KUDOS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

As an ex resident of Panjim, I was told by some old friends of this awesome restaurant that took on sizzlers and pizzas with a twist of Goa. So, this was the place to be when I visited Goa last week and although my stay was in Varca, couldn't resist the trip to Porvorim. First..the ambience was contemporary and clearly a relief as Goan stand alone restaurants can get too predictable from a look n feel angle. The menu..and what a winner...I had the Prawn balcao pizza first...a lip smacking wood fired thin crust pizza that had the unmistakable twang of home made balcao...full marks for creativity and lip smacking taste here !! Next in line was the seafood peri peri sizzler...just the right amount of spice wondrously entangling some fresh squids, jumbo prawns and king fish...served with panache; brilliant! Do note that restaurants serving sizzlers usually get stuffy..but this was well sorted out here. My kids had the brownie with ice cream flambeed with style with some rum ( my 11 year olds first initiation with alcohol :-)) and while they all claimed that they were stuffed and couldn't eat this, it was polished off in a hurry..so you know the verdict here. All of this washed down by the unique and pleasantly surprising jalapeno margherita...chilled, quirky and a smile inducing drink. Kudos' enterprising brother duo of Shawn and Savio DSouza needs a pat on their broad shoulders for taking dining out to a higher level. cant' wait to come back to Kudos and Goa, in that order...

“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

A small restaurant in porvorim with good interiors. The soups were great and the garlic fish was cooked to perfection with great spices. The creamy garlic mushrooms sizzler was exceptional. The icing on the cake was the Kudos sizzled Brownie. Attentive and polite staff give great recommendations. They also have great pizzas.

“Sizzling Hot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Best Sizzler Joint in Goa. You can ask for sizzler as per your requirements. They also serve very good Pizza. Try Kudos Special chicken Sizzler and batter fried Prawns. Owners Shawn and Savio will also help you select a perfect sizzler.
