“Five Star Food in a Family Atmosphere”
Everything we had was delicious - vegetable from their own garden, fresh seafood and seasoned just right. (Reviewed 8 December 2012)
This is a cut above all the other restaurants we visited serving Goan food. It is so good we went three times in two days. The food is really delicious and run by a delightful couple who are charming. (Reviewed 1 November 2012)
