“MY FAVOURITE INDIAN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2010

I was never attracted to Indian cuisine because most of the restaraunts have curtains pulled in the windows and the interior seemed dark and dull with cheesy ornaments all over the place.This restaraunt is super bright and full of life with friendly staff. As for the food its fab! Fresh ingredients combined in a wonderful array of dishes offering choice,great taste and value for money.The wine list is good and you can't beat a cold bottle of Cobra Beer to accompany Indian food.

“Nothing special...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2010

Altogether average in every way... No real flavour to the food, medium dishes too hot to taste... Very cramped, and service a little too much "in your face" although I did like that the chef came out to say hello... We were over from England for a few days so are probably used to a higher standard of Indian Cuisine!

“Indian food as it should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2010

A very good Indian restaurant, excellent choices with a few surprises, naan bread.. best we have tasted, service was good and professional, and dealt with our queries very well. The night we were dining we had an indian novice with us, and the waiter steered the lady through the mine field that is the menu! All in all a most enjoyable experience. We'll be back!

“Excellent excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2010

I have been to Cafe Goa on a number of occassions now and the food is exceptional each and every time. The staff are very friendly. While the restaurant is small and tables can be tight, this all adds to the atmosphere. Due to it's popularity I have heard they thought of moving to a bigger premises. I would hate to see this as there is something about the place the way it is now - it gives a good feel of India and would likely be more 'commercialised' in a larger premises.

I've tried every Indian in this city and would not go back to any of them. Cafe goa is the first I would go back to. They could do more on the value though.
