Choose this shack for this years holiday and so glad we did. Everyone so friendly, very attentive and didnt have a bad meal there - ate there most lunchtimes & some evenings for 2 weeks - everything superb. Never had cheese nans like it and tandori red snapper was delicious.
Thanks to all of you for making our holiday so enjoyable. Hope to see you all again soon.

What an unlikey looking place to find such quality food and good value. Sam and his team work hard and successfully to satisfy all his customers. Such great food choices and the chef on the tandoors is brilliant. The fresh fish choices are simply stuning. We really enjoyed the enormous prawns, huge sea bass and various chciken dishes, The fresh cooked naan breads are superb. I really hope we can get there again

We have eaten the Tandoori Chicken here for the last 2 years. It is delicious but do pre-order as Sam likes to marinade it for a while before cooking. It is lovely sitting with one’s feet in the sand and gazing at the stars. It is possible to get over hungry if a meal requires special preparation and has not been ordered in advance. It is a good idea to see the menu during the day to ask if pre-ordering is advantageous. The ‘boys’ are attentive and very friendly. For the readers, Sam has an excellent collection of reading books in good condition that he lends out to his customers. We have also added to his collection.

Sams Goan beach shack is undoubtly the best food we had in Goa, the owner 'Sam' and his family are so friendly and very happy and proud of their restaurant and only too happy to take you into their 'spotless' beach kitchen and show you from scratch possibly the best pilau rice we have ever tasted, we ended up eating there for lunch and then go back down to the beach for dinner and wish we had found this restaurant earlier in our holiday. Sam has had a shack on the beach for 15 years I believe its on the beach at Majorda, it moves each year around the beach as the shacks are taken down in the monsoon season. Cant wait to return X
