We visit this place for more than 12 years and never disapointed us. Goan food is tasty, very good. And this time we were delighted with a new menu where gluten free options were clearly shown (my wife is gluten intolerant). And that's almost everything!

We were surprised to find this gem of an Indian Restaurant across the street from our hotel. We’ve eaten Indian food from India to NYC and this is as good as it gets. The staff is professional and accommodating. We highly recommend eating there.

I've never had a bad meal in "The Palms". My particular favorite is the Fish Thali which I could eat every day. Try the take away boxes. Amazing value. I couldn't recommend this any higher ...

Went here for a curry fix. It was a nice cozy warm restaurant away from the London chill. The welcome was very friendly especially from the owner, Eugene, if I am spelling that right. The food was probably the best Indian food I have ever...More

Did some research and decided to take a punt on this restaurant and go a tube station further beyond the usual get offs- so worth it! Not a super trendy restaurant- no 'mood' lighting- all the better for it because they concentrate on 1st class...More

Palms of Goa is a unique Indian restaurant, serving distinctly Goan cuisine. The history of this special branch of cooking reflects Goa���s Indian and Portuguese heritage - the main ingredients being coconut and spices, creating a flavoursome and distinctive taste. Located on London���s bustling New Cavendish Street, Palms of Goa is a popular place for business lunches and after-work meals. The rich red interior and delicious, healthy food make the experience of dining here a memorable one, and our favourite dishes include the Lamb Xacutti, a Goan dish prepared with coconut, vinegar and hot spices, and the restaurant���s renowned Pumpkin Curry. Palms of Goa has been in business for over 23 years, and is a favourite spot for Soho diners.
