I ate lunch at this nice location. I was on the one of the City tour bus trip. The tour bus dropped us off near Viva Goa. It was delicious and fast! I hope to return soon!

We were visiting San Francisco and craved some tandoori chicken. Fortunately, this restaurant was close to our hotel, so we ordered some food to take out. Pleasantly surprised. The chicken was moist and flavorful, and the vegetable dishes we ordered were very good (okra and...More

I love Indian food and I always want to eat the Malai Kofta. As a vegetarian I was never disappointed with Indian cuisine. The service was great. They were very friendly and asked about the spice and everything. The food was excellent and more than...More

I grew up on Goan food and in 40 years have not seen or tried Goan food outside India. Pleasantly surprised!

We got our Indian food fix here. It was not exceptional in taste but was average because the paneer tasted like it was frozen/old. The naan was good and the sauce for the paneer was tasty. We ordered to go and got the food quickly.

They don't know how to treat their customers. It was a very bad experience and is never expected from an Indian. After interacting with there very intelligent attendant we cancelled our reservation. Will never ever visit them again.

I'm one of those terrible San Franciscans who has a hard time taking anything on that ugly stretch of Lombard seriously. Well, that attitude is a big mistake when it comes to Viva Goa (and everything else, bad me). It's pretty subtle, but Viva Goa...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
