Highly recommendable and very good ratio of price/quality. Oasis in the food restaurant scene of Baga. Multilingual menu selections outside the place seldom fulfill its promises but Indian Impact was a elaborate entirety.
Favorite Dish: Example menu for two: Vegs stuffed squids (95 rps) were superb. Mixed veg portion, tandoori chicken and garlic naans. With soda, water and coffee and two marvellous handmade ice cream, the bill was little over 600 rupias (March 2003).
The picture is of a typical restaurant that you will find in the dusty streets of Goa. The tips about finding a decent place is, if there are a lot of people eating there then it is useually ok, before you eat sit down and peruse the menu and maybe have a drink and go check the toilets out, obviously there are not up to western standards but some are better than others and you can get a good idea of the standards of hygiene that way ,as I found out at one particular restaurant when I asked for the toilet I found it in the middle of the kitchen with just a cloth screen seperating me from the hole in the floor and the chefs cooking the food, talk about stage fright !
My favourite was Lobo's at calangut beach. He made Amazing pancakes! Being a vegetarian I have limited choice. but my friends freaked out on the sea food. check out the fish in the picture!
Everywhere you go in goa - the beaches at least have rows upon rows of shacks. You can try out different ones for each meal. Walk from Bagha to Aguada, and there will be a shack every step of the way!
You will find all sorts of food in goa. South indian, north indian, chinese, mexican, italian, lebanese and continental. The closer you get to Aguada (by road not via the beach) the more western the food.
Favorite Dish: Well, i really am not the best person to comment. But do try the local cuisine. ask for it. If you like hot food try the Vindaloo curry. Blow your trunks off!!
On Calangute High Street are several good cafes...I tend to use Rock Cafe as its a great place to sit and people watch...whilst downing several small 'kings' beer!
Favorite Dish: Tuna Salad
