Was looking forward to drop in and was told that the beach shack was closed and demolished ( as is normal practice with all seasonal shacks). The shining star restaurant is still functional but is on the Baga main road and not on the beach. Location was not tempting enough to give it a try.

This is a nice place to hang out with friends and family. This place is just right on the Baga Beach. They serve all sort of Chinese, continental, sea food. Taste is good and it is value for money.

Been here couple of days back, ordered noodles, sandwiches and must say the noodles and the sandwiches were perfect, the down side was the staff though, not much attentive and yes it's good for those who want it quite but we expected some good music on the beach and it was not there :)

Food served at this shack is awesome. we had ordered vegetarian food that too chineses and it turned out to be pretty good. Being a shack rates charged are a bit high.. but guess thats the case for all the shacks at Goa. Will visit again next time

Tempted by excellent reviews the place had, we decided to visit Shining Star. It was Ok, but nothing special. Ok food, ok drinks, ok service. We didn't see much difference between shining star and many other shacks.
