“Killer Chicken...”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

...But not in a good way.

Okay, positives: the so called 'Majestic Prawns' starter were creamy, very full of garlic and tasty. The aubergine pakora were okay and the accompanying green chutney was lovely.

Now, the negatives. If you call your restaurant 'Relish' then you have standards to uphold. Serving stuffed chicken that is raw in the middle is not a dish to relish except perhaps by proctologists. Re-cooking that dish and then charging the potentially poisoned customer the full amount is just disrespectful.

So, I did not relish "Relish' and trust that the owner will re-assess both his cooking strategies and his customer relations skills.

“Vast Venue with a Vast Menu”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Relish Not to be confused with the place opposite called Royal Relish(which we never tried, but rather confusing to say the least !!!)

We had missed seeing & being served Vinny up at All Spice for the last 2-3yrs, his knowledge & professionalism were boardering on a Cult following. Everybody would mention the place & mention Vinny with such high esteem

Now fronting a New restaurant on the Calungute/Baga Rd (turn down the side rd when you reach the Baga Deck & Relish is on the right 30yrds ahead) The Vene is both spacious & intimate with its well placed tables & seating. Theres outside & undercover/Smoking & Non smoking (so you pays your money & you takes your choice)

The waiting staff were both willing & friendly whilst the Menu seemed to have as much choice as the Yellow pages (well not really that thick)
Can not recall what we actually ate but I know it was tasty & good value which other reviews confirm

And All the time Vinny was moving from table to table Not over stopping his Welcome but just staying long enough to show that he does appear to care

“Great choice”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

We ate here 4 times during our holiday ..what is excellent is a " non smoking area " ..not many restaurants in Goa have this ..as for the food it it very good 8/10 .. the staff 10/10 .. ambience 10/10 . My only grudge was the meals are way too big ..even asked for smaller portions but still could not eat everything & hate the thought of sending uneaten food back ...even felt obliged to appoligise ...We will be back in November & will be eating here again ...Well done Relish staff
