    Dehli Darbar: Classic Indian

    by bpwillet Written Dec 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Dehil Darbar is one of the best sit down restaurants in Panaji. the food is typical of Northern India with a few Goan dishes in there as well. The fruit juices are always fresh and the food is prepared in traditional ways and very very good. The prices are also very reasonable and to too unlike anywhere else you will eat in Goa. The staff is incredibly friendly and all have a great handle on English. However, do not expect them to be very fluent or helpful in other languages. Marathi-Hindi and English are a bout it.

    Favorite Dish: I don't have a favorite dish. There are the typical dishes you'd find at any other Indian restaurant (Korma, Rogan, Vindaloo, etc) as far as curries go. However, there are some specialty dishes from Northern India as well as some British dishes.

    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.

    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!

    The Mango Grove: Lovely

    by julia687 Written Nov 22, 2005

    This restaurant is right in the middle of Candolim and does beautiful pancakes for breakfast, our favourite was coconut as it was made with freshly grated coconut.
    We also ate dinner & lunch here as we were so impressed, if you eat the curry I think it was about £1 - £1.50 & delicious.
    It is very reasonable and serves a range of local & international food at silly prices!

    A tour guide recommended it to us and boy was he right!

    Favorite Dish: Fresh coconut pancakes

    Star Restaurant: Great Fresh food

    by joolssss Updated Nov 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located on Baga beach itself. the staff are as helpful and friendly as you could wish for. The food is divine. We ate there most days and were never disappointed. It was very very cheap and of high standard. It also hosted the cleanest toilet on the beach!
    The guys in there also put us onto a very good taxi driver who we kept for the 2 weeks we were there.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster Thermodore, This was from heaven , it was absolutely delicious and have never had one as good since! Also the milkshakes are freshly made, with fresh fruit or chunks of chocolate, very very yummy!

    Souza Lobo's: Worth a visit when in Goa

    by alavan12 Written Oct 7, 2005

    Souza Lobo's in Calangute is always worth a visit. Located on the beach it has indoor and outdoor seating areas. The food is good and although the waiters are very busy, the service is always with a smile. We were abit disappointed with the food on Xmas Eve 04 as it wasn't up to the usual standard, although we will go back and give it another go!

    It is a good idea to arrive early as it does get busy and you may have to queue.

  • INDIAN: shack food

    by vegiehead Updated Aug 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have eaten in many shacks in india and as a general rule they have all been of a good standard but one deserves a mention is rams shack in candolim as he does the best vegetarian samosas i have ever had.For 40 rs you get two big fat tasty samoas and they are well worth the money.We thought they were that good we used to walk from baga along the beach eat them then walk back.Sometimes we took a doggy bag back with us and gave them to friends and they liked them as well.Rams other food on the menu is quite good and as with all goans he is a character and he likes his cricket.

    Pedro's: Benaulims institution!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has been here for donkeys years...orinally a small shack, its now moved up onto the end of the Benaulim beach road.

    NB. If anyone is wondering about the photo...its a pic of the original Pedro's as it looked back in 1986, not the current brick built version.

    Favorite Dish: The fish & seafood dishes are fantastic...washed down with a cold Kingfisher!

    Silver Sands: Lovely food, lovely people!

    I go here every day I am in Goa. All the boys who work here are so friendly, the food is good and cheap.

    As with most of the beach shacks, just pay for food and drink here and the sun lounges are free.

    have also been here for evening meals, the fresh fish is superb and the service is second to none!

    Favorite Dish: The boys who work here know I don't like to get my face in the sun...they move my umbrella around as the sun moves round throughout the day to make sure I am in the shade.

    They will even sit and pour your drinks!

    Now that is what I call service!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My wife and i was in north goa for 5 months in which time we ate at many restuarants.One of our favourite was Lazy Days at calungute opposite csm is spotlessly clean and a veried menu.We only ate vegetarian but our friends ate fish/chicken and had no complaints.Also for music lovers the owners had an excellent sound system playing varios types of music.

    Favorite Dish: All the vegertarian food was excellent.Some people asked me where the best place i had eaten and i always said lazy days.I said to them if you go there to eat and you dont like it i would pay for it,but no one asked me to pay for there meal as they enjoyed it.
