    OCEANIC: FANTASTIC CHEAP TRADITIONAL GOAN FOOD

    by PAULWELSHBOY Written Jan 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    LOCATED LOOKING OVER THE MAIN STREET IN CALANGUTE CENTER JUST UP FROM THE JUNCTION OF THE MAIN BAGA ROAD.
    THE SETTING IS SMALL AND VERY WELCOMING AND IS OPEN AIR SO YOU CAN WATCH THE HUSSLE AND BUSSLE OF CALANGUTE AT NIGHT.
    THE FOOD IS SO CHEAP AND FRESH MY WIFE AND I ON A RECENT TRIP IN DEC O6 ATE HERE 3 TIMES.
    IF YOU WANT GOOD CHEAP FOOD THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!!!!!.
    A MEAL AND DRINKS FOR TWO PEOPLE WAS USUALLY UNDER 500 RUPPEES THAT IS CHEAP!!! AND LOADS OF FOOD ALSO.

    Favorite Dish: THE BUTTER CHICKEN IS TO DIE FOR SERVED WITH BUTTER JEERA RICE AND A GARLIC NANN (THE BEST I HAVE HAD IN GOA)

    Martin's Corner Restaurant and Bar: Fantastic Goan Fish Curry

    by aqazi Written Aug 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In my opinion this is one of the best restaurants in Goa and I think many will agree. It can be found in south Goa in a tiny hamlet called Betalbatim which happened to be where my partner and I stayed for a week.

    The food here is excellent and the best courses are of course the fish curries. We were warned about the strength of the chilly but found it fine. We came here many times and the staff became familier with us. They serve alcohol including local wine (Yuk). When we were here the clientelle mostly consisted of middle/upper class indian families.

    Favorite Dish: Fish Curry, don't bother with the meat dishes. If you don't like things too hot then say something or else you won't be able to eat it.

    Annapurna: Tip Top

    The first restaurant I visited in Goa and one I keep returning to.

    For an experience you can sit by the tree that grows through the centre of the front eating area and watch the world go by or for a quieter meal use the upstairs dining area.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken lollipops, a chicken drumstick dippped in a spicy batter. Anything with fried rice and a naan.

  • Midaas Touch: Just like England

    by KayPee Written Oct 13, 2004

    Described as a 'family restaurant'. which seems to mean every style of food, Indian, Continental, Chinese, served in bright A/C surroundings. If you like a typical english indian this is the place to go. Extensive menu, try their different tikkas, dal makhani, rogan josh. Service good though a few too many waiters for me. Sit outside under the fans if you want to be quiet.

    Favorite Dish: Rogan Josh, Butter Chicken, Dal, Veg Wontons.

    The Plantian Leaf: Local Indian

    by jalapeeno Written Nov 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The plantian leaf is another superb local stop for food.

    Not an ideal place for a 'special night out' but ideal for a quick cheap yummy meal. Its where most of the locals go for a bite and the settings are nothing special but the food is superb. Its all local currys, very very reasonable prices, I think we paid about £4 for 3 currys a couple of nan breads and drinks for me and the miss's.

    Pure vegetarian.

    Favorite Dish: Phew, too many to mention, as the waiter and he wil point you in the right direction.

    INDIAN: Punjabi cuisine at it's best

    by Durfun Written Dec 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sher-E-Punjab (NorthIndian cuisine) is a restuarant with mouth-watering dishes & recipes.

    The decor, ambience is superb & the service is awesome!

    A real treat, you will be treated like royalty here!!

    Favorite Dish: Vegetarian Tawa > it looks great, and tastes like something 'out of this world'.

    To keep it special, you had never had it b4, & will never have it again!

    Yes, it's not a local (Konkani) dish, but it came highly recommended & so I went here.

    INDIAN: Great choices...

    by venteeocho Written Aug 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calangute's bars and restaurants
    are mainly grouped around the entrance
    to the beach and along the Baga road.
    As with most Goan resorts,
    the accent is firmly on seafood,
    though many places tack on a few
    token vegetarian dishes.
    Western breakfasts also
    feature prominently

    Titanic: If you're missing a taste of home...

    by illumina Written Dec 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now normally all I want to do is try all the local food, and I can be a teensy bit scathing of people who only want to eat what they have at home. But when you've been on the road (or rails) for several months, and have eaten pretty much the same thing every day, you do want something different, and you're craving familiar tastes. So when we arrived in Goa, I will admit that we did indulge ourselves with a few treats of this type!

    Titanic restaurant on the beach at Palolem (next door to High Tide at the southern end of the beach) does beans on toast - the perfect British remedy for a surfeit of curry!

    They also have beach huts, slightly cheaper than High Tide (200INR), but not so well situated.

    Unnamed dhaba: A little more local...

    by illumina Written Dec 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're after something a little more local, go to the little stall on the corner of the road where Hi-Tide huts are situated. It's run by a very friendly husband and wife team, they generally only have one dish a day, but it's always tasty, and it is cheap compared to the restaurants on the beach, although more than you might pay in other parts of India (144 INR for two thalis and two teas).

    This is also the place to come if you fancy hiring a scooter!

    Family Dhaba?: Another more local choice

    On the Pundalik Gaitondi road, between Canacona station and Palolem beach, there's a little family dhaba which does great local food, and is much cheaper than the touristy restaurants near the beach. The family running it are very friendly.

    The Plantain Leaf: Very good Vegetarian restaurant

    by Sandrine78 Written Nov 25, 2005

    In Calangute, nearby the market. Very good vegetarian food, To find it look up it is on the 1st floor.

    Favorite Dish: If you fancy various dishes, but don't really know what to order go for a Special Thali, it has a variety of currys with plain rice and pilau rice also has some sweet and salad. The papadum and puri were to die for!

    INDIAN, Dunes Beach: Dunes Beach all day long

    by dircelo Updated May 11, 2005
    dunes beach breakfast

    Typical delicious indian food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, available just above the beach behind the little luguna. Also beach huts, shacks available. If you have food and beverages the enclosed sunbeds on the beach are free of charge. I should have kept the secret.
    The athmosphere is in particular fine in the morning because there is always a little breeze from the sea, it is quiet, but still enough life, the people in the surrounding shacks liklely still rest...service was fast too.

    Favorite Dish: The vegetarian mushrooms and pea curry, the omelettes, juices.
