“Visit to la bela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Excellent place to enjoy Goan delicacies better than those in Goa itself. I have been visiting this place since 1986. Excellent authentic food at very throw away price with good hygiene, ambiance may not be up to the expectations.

“There was a goan lady, there ALWAYS will be a goan lady.. (we hope so)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

La-Bella, is the fare of legendary proportions. If you understand the value of non-veg tasty food in a predominant vegeterian city, you would understand the cult status this place has achieved. I know of people who have been eating for 3 generations. Single handedly run by a widow and her helpers who are of whimsical nature, and strange proportions the food is unforgettable. Known people to return to the city just for visiting "aunty" and "anna" as they are popularly known.. if she's in the mood she might just pat your hand and ask you why your father (who's pushing 55) doesn't come anymore..
For beginners, i would suggest the pork vindaloo, the kheema, the mutton fry.. basically anything. Comes with a heap of rice, which is plain and delicious. might not be the ISO-9002 on cleanliness, but then when you taste the food, who cares..
Finding the location and parking might be an issue, so try to take a rick, or 2-wheeler. Walking down should also do, but careful in the nights.
Timings are important. No advance bookings are accepted, wastage is frowned upon. No hugs for the old lady unless you know her. smiles WILL NOT be returned.

“La bela - The best authentic Goan Food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

La Bela - If you happen to be an IIM or an NID student, you will never forget this eatery. Run by an old Goan lady ( I don't know whether she is alive right now) was the most sought after hangout place for IIM or NID students.. They experienced the motherly care of the owner who cooked every dish she served herself... Not too expensive ambience but also not too expensive food... the food served with love..
