It's a small restaurant tucked away on a quiet side street. And it's the best Goan food I've had outside of Goa and my family's kitchen. We had the shrimp samosas, prawn masala, crab curry with some chapatis and rice and it was all incredible....More

This is a cosy spot and the food was delicious. The prawn and meat samosas were excellent and wish I could have ordered more but they were Euros 1.50 each, so had to leave space for the main dishes too. The prawn and okra curry...More
