Been here way too many times. Every time I crave pork vindaloo this is where I end up. Authentic Goan food. Calamari is a must try as well. Good service and friendly staff. It’s a bit of a hidden gem I would say.

Paneer kadai was sublime, prawn curry and cauliflower caldinha equally awesome. Great music, atmosphere and attentive waiters in a quaint house just off the main drag. Well worth a visit.
