“STILL GOOD BUT A PROBLEM WITH THE FISH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

In previous years The Royal Relish has been one of my favourite restaurants in Baga. However, this year on two occasions we ordered the King Fish and when it was served it plainly was not King Fish. On the first occasion Ali admitted it was some inferior fish which his supplier had "slipped in" his order and he did not charge us for it. On the second occasion George continued to insist it was kingfish right up to the point of us leaving. If you will excuse the pun, it left a nasty taste in the mouth.
However, Other food we had there was as good as usual and we did go again to the Valentines night which was very good. I just hope they can sort their fish problem out or they will lose customers. Based on previous experiences I will try it again.

“GETTING BETTER AND BETTER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Our second year visiting this restaurant, and as far as we are concerned it just gets better. The staff are all well trained and have been doing the job for years. Yes they do run around, but that is because its always busy, and they do not like to keep people waiting too long, but you have to expect this when everything is freshly cooked. A good menu and fair prices.But not the easiest to find!

“Not sure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner visited the restaurant as we heard great reviews. The service was absolutely fantastic, we both ordered the same for the starter chicken tikka which was beautiful and very well presented, however we were no so keen on our main course again we ordered the same which was chicken tikka masala, very bland and not much flavour which was a little disappointing as the starter was fantastic and so was the service. Maybe will give it a try next year and try something different!!

“Lovely find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Firstly I want to apologise to Royal Relish as I intended to write this review 3 years ago! Never mind better late than never... Food was great and inexpensive. Staff were lovely and friendly. We dined here at least 4 times during our holiday. In fact we are thinking of coming back to Goa this year and I will be visiting this restaurant again!

“So so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were recommended to this palce, the garden setting pretty enough, food ok, but had to order veg seperate, but not a relaxed atmosphere as the staff were running around too much not seeming to know what the other staff were up to. Service quite poor but friendly.
