We were looking for a place where we could have Indian food, and we weren't disappointed. Mr. Dias - from Goa - offers a wide variety of Indian dishes for all tastes (vegetarian and non ...). The food itself was excellent, and the wine too. This was the first time we had had dinner at this place, yet we felt... More

Went with friends and the starter was good but the main course was not good at all. Also waiters could look smarter. Shirt hanging out and looking more greasy than the curries is not a good look.

We regularly visit this lovely restaurant on this great location on Charlotte Street. There are many delicious options on the menu, notably the thalis and the lamb chops. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Also, the prices are very reasonable.

One of the best curry houses in central London with an accessible and varied menu generous portion sizes, especially the thalis and biriyanis. We've been visiting the Palms of Goa for over a decade; the food is consistently fantastic and the owner is attentive and welcoming. Every time we see him he is smiling.

My Goan wife and I had the non-vegetable and fish thali respectively. We enjoyed the fresh spicy flavours enormously and Eugene Dias looked after us so well. The service was friendly, efficient without being stuffy.

Delicious food at a very good price. The staff are wonderful especially the manager. I've gone once a week for four years. I get the lamb box special but they swap out the chicken FOR EVEN MORE LAMB! Strongly recommend!

I came across this restaurant quite randomly about a couple of years back while looking for lunch options near the place I work (Oxford Street). Since then Palms of Goa has become one of my preferred lunch destinations on weekdays for a fulfilling yet affordable lunch. More often than not, I have opted for the set lunch which is available...

Palms of Goa is a unique Indian restaurant, serving distinctly Goan cuisine. The history of this special branch of cooking reflects Goa���s Indian and Portuguese heritage - the main ingredients being coconut and spices, creating a flavoursome and distinctive taste. Located on London���s bustling New Cavendish Street, Palms of Goa is a popular place for business lunches and after-work meals. The rich red interior and delicious, healthy food make the experience of dining here a memorable one, and our favourite dishes include the Lamb Xacutti, a Goan dish prepared with coconut, vinegar and hot spices, and the restaurant���s renowned Pumkin (sic) Curry. Palms of Goa has been in business for over thirteen years, and is a favourite spot for Soho diners.
