“Decent meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I dined here with my family almost two years ago... finally getting round to reviewing it. It was our first meal in Goa, and we thought it was pretty neat. Nice, family run, good-natured waiters etc. Their seafood was tasty, but I don't think I'll recommend their pork or other meat dishes. Good soup too.

“Rip off: check your bill!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We went to this restaurant 3 times while in Panjim. The first time, for lunch, we were charged the price as shown on the menu. Second time, at night, we were charged close to 1000 rupees for 1 oddly flavoured prawn balchao, 1 awful pork vindalho, 1 bowl of rice, 2 beers and 3 fenis. We thought it was too much for what we had ordered but we didn't check our bill correctly. Today we went there for the beef steak, which was the only thing we liked. First they tried to charge us for something we didn't order, second the beers had suffered a 20% increase overnight, and that's when we noticed that we were being charged an extra 22% of the bill stated as "tax". We asked what that tax was and proved that there's nowhere on the menu stated that VAT and service tax, which a restaurant is obliged to inform the clients anywhere in Goa. Besides, the official VAT rate is 14,5%! And if you use the windowless AC room, you get a different menu, with higher prices that is! So, be prepared for a rip off!

“The locals place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Lovely lively cafe type atmosphere. Access direct from the street. No frills but clean, excellent service and excellent food on a budget. Eaten here three times in two weeks. Add it to your list you won't be disappointed
