“Great food and excellent service”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We ate at the Boom Shankar twice in December 2012 and it was really great. The food was wonderful (one of the best curries I ever had in India and the "catch of the day" fish roasted in the tandoori oven was simply heavenly), the service was great (quick, alert and friendly) and the terrace with a wonderful view over Colomb beach is a great place to relax. I can really recommend to come here for lunch or dinner when you are on vacation in Palolem or Patnem!

“Superb, peaceful location with great food”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I found this place after a wander up from Palolem. I'm glad I did, because I then ended up staying for 2 nights too. Lovely room with a view over the bay.

The food is great, a mix of Indian and Western dishes, with far more imagination than the average menu. The breakfast in particular, with garlic spinach, is superb.

Goan fish curries are nothing short of spectacular, and most of the dishes feature freshly-caught fish.

Very nice atmosphere looking over the bay. Well worth it for sunset.

“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Once we found this place we did not bother to go anywhere else. Waiters were great, food excellent. Bruschetta made the most perfect lunch. Mojitos at sunset. Great view and cooling breeze. Can highly recommend this place.

“Boomshankar is an ace place with lovely, friendly staff and great food.”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Stayed there for 3 weeks in early 2011and had fantastic service from really nice staff. Food excellent, views beautiful and importantly they don't encourage loud, brash behaviour, keeping it very pleasant and peaceful for the rest of us. Can't wait to go back.
