try the palak paneer and malai kofta, it's the best in town. The revamped restaurant maybe half it's previous size but the taste and value are still as good.

Food is authentic Goan and scrumptious. Excellent ambiance and the best price for the generous portions. Owners themselves monitor everything and overall a very fond warm experience at this lovely place. I would highly reccomend this place if you want a true Goan culinary experience

When in goa, go as the Goans do. We asked a friend in goa to take us to place with authentic goan food and they got us here. We had a variety of starters. And everything was excellent. Nice cozy place with a great chef.
