Dropped in for a lunch date the other day having raved about the value for money to my wife. We were not disappointed and as I suspected sheould she loved it. The lunch special comes in vegetarian or non-veg. The latter comes with either lamb chops or chicken wings, plus chicken curry, chick peas, yoghurt, naan, and rice. All for... More

Having been to Goa on several occasions I yearn for a glimpse of being back there. Today I sat on their little outside seating in the sun. I went for a simple favourite of just a prawn Goan curry and rice and a glass of house wine. I closed my eyes and all I was missing was the sand in... More

After reading the good reviews about this place and the authentic looking Goan menu I booked this for a group of us after work. We arrived at 6pm and were the only table there but the staff seemed to have no interest at all in taking our order. We were not in a hurry but were quite hungry and having... More

Palms of Goa in lively Charlotte Street is probably the finest Indian restaurant in London. Its wide variety of dishes are freshly cooked, genuinely Goan and would delight the most demanding aficionado of curries. The staff are friendly and efficient with the large number of longstanding customers testament to the restaurant's consistently high quality. The hands-on owner is also happy... More

We stumbled on Palms of Goa after meeting a friend for drinks at the hotel bar across the street and were very happy we did. The food is excellent and the environment is incredibly comfortable. The owner is so absolutely welcoming. We know we will make this a regular stop on future visits to London.

Description
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.
