Always pay a visit to the spice rack to see Sanjay and the lads! If you're wanting a great steak then head there!! Great value for money also!

By far the most popular night is Wednesday when you can have steak for two and a bottle of wine for under a tenner.(£10)

Visited here many times during our 3 week stay this month. You get really excellent food and the prices are very reasonable as are the drinks. The house steak topped with tomato and grated cheese, comes with mushrooms and onions, fresh veg, chips or mash and small salad is what I class as a top class meal in the U.K.... More

We decided to stop at The Spice Rack as it wasonly a short walk away from our hotel. We were glad that we did! The food and drinks were extremly cheap, and staff were attentive and friendly. The only thing I would say is that some of the customers/residents of Goa (mainly men) would often stare at us. However this... More

I reckon there is a Chef in back kitchen rather than just a cook. Ordered a pepper steak medium rare and it was perfectly cooked with a very good pepper sauce.

We like this place, it's up a back road away from the hussel of the main road, which adds to the atmosphere while enjoying a nice curry with plenty of cold Kingfisher and a bottle of nice local red wine. The waiters are all very pleasant and helpful, we will be returning again for another visit for sure
