Location and contact

Intimate fine dining restaurant with a seperate bar lounge on the upper floor. Classic N'Orleans cuisine served with fun and passion. Chef Sohan, the owner and chef, had a restaurant with the same name and serving the same food in Tokyo, Japan for 18years and has recently made Goa his new home. Caramel walls with old Mardi Gras posters, candels on the table, linen napkins, mellow jazz & blues playing in the background transport diners to the banks of the Mississippi, the city of New Orleans. A small menu of all the Cajun& Creole classics - Gumbo, Blackened fish, Shrimp Etouffee, Jambalaya, Fried chicken, Red beans n rice..... Come...let the good times roll...

My friend and I went for dinner to this place on 16 May, 2019. We have the following feedback to provide. 1. Food. Prawns were decent but really is it that hard to go wrong with deep fried food? Quesadillas were underwhelming. Essentially a glorified...More

Came here once it is very small with only 10 covers . It has an interesting menu the chef is very excentric, but he sells you his choice of what to eat. With tips and a beer it can set you back £30 for 2,...More

Visited this restaurant three times on this holiday. Would give it 5* on each occasion. The chef will go out of his way to keep his customers happy. Asked him if he would cook me a Lobster Thermidor with a cajun twist. He went out...More

Me and partner heard from a family about this place while having some drink elsewhere and booked it the next day. It is very small but that takes nothing away from the incredible food. The chef was very chatty and advised us to only have...More
