Description: At Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed down the generations. Our menu takes inspiration from all regions of India but we have a passion for Goa. Since its opening in 1993, we have won critical acclaim & we take pride in the fact that we are a genuine family-run independant restaurant. Our mission has always been to serve tasty, fresh, unpretentious home-style paired with incredible craft beers from our tap wall. Situated 2 minutes away from Putney British Rail & 5 minutes away from East Putney Tube it makes a perfect venue before a night on the town. We also offer a popular take-away & local delivery service via Deliveroo & UberEats & a party catering service. We look forward to welcoming you to Ma Goa soon.

“Delicous!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We visited this restaurant recently and were not disappointed. Excellent food, beautifully spiced and nicely presented. We didn't find the restaurant noisy at all and the waiters were charming and efficient. The lady who I think was in charge was very efficient but a little stern and rarely smiled - we suspected she'd had a bad day - but apart from that, we had a great night out and will be back again.

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to write on Trip Advisor. Your feedback is more important than you can imagine. I am very sorry if I gave the wrong impression to you when you dined with us. Admittedly, we were a little under-staffed and that may have been I was a little more under pressure than usual, although I should not have let you notice that. I'm glad to read that you will return & look forward to welcoming you with a smile soon! Regards

“The Perfect Wedding Anniversary Celebration!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

My husband and I took our daughter and her husband to Ma Goa as a surprise to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. Goa is a special place for them as that's where he proposed and then they went there for their honeymoon. The 'Ma Goa' family were especially attentive; the food was perfection and overall service and ambience were great.

“Wow! Amazing food and fantastic place”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We've been to Ma Goa a few times now, even though we live on the other side of London - it's absolutely worth it. In the heart of beautiful Putney, it's a super restaurant, great for lunch (especially the amazing Sunday buffet), or for a lovely evening out. The food is delicious, the staff are the best, the ambience is great whether you want an evening out or a family lunch - they cater for and welcome you.
