Certificate of Excellence

Description: Intimate fine dining restaurant with a seperate bar lounge on the upper floor. Classic N'Orleans cuisine served with fun and passion.

Caramel walls with old Mardi Gras posters, candels on the table, linen napkins, mellow jazz & blues playing in the background transport diners to the banks of the Mississippi, the city of New Orleans. A small menu of all the Cajun& Creole classics - Gumbo, Blackened fish, Shrimp Etouffee, Jambalaya, Fried chicken, Red beans n rice..... Come...let the good times roll...

Never fails to deliver. This hidden gem is a must do on any Candolim holiday. There six weeks and went three times. Still the best friend chicken we have ever tasted. My husband loves the fish. Seven of us went one night and the chef did several dishes I would never have ordered meat loaf but it was fabulous. It's small and cosy must book to avoid disappointment. I think it is one of the best restaurants in the whole of Goa.

Visited this restaurant three times on this holiday. Would give it 5* on each occasion. The chef will go out of his way to keep his customers happy. Asked him if he would cook me a Lobster Thermidor with a cajun twist. He went out of his way to get me a nice big lobster (crayfish) then cooked it to perfection. Thank you Sohan.

There should be a long queue every night outside this restaurant. Can only think that the location makes it difficult to find, it is well tucked away, but if you like good food find this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

This place is a hidden gem. We were so impressed with our visit last year, we booked a table as soon as we arrived this year. It's only small, but that allows Sohan to take your order personally and to cook it just as you want it - and he is an excellent chef, whose experience and expertise shines through, and for whom the quality and presentation of the food are paramount.. Last night's blackened fish is one of the best fish I have ever had.

Don't be put off by the location (down a bit of a back street) - you will have some of the best food in Goa.
