I visited this restaurant with my family after reading that it had won the award for the best Chinese food restaurant. The location is slightly off and parking is a major issue. Inside the interiors are dimly lit and it is very cramped. You cannot turn yourself without hitting the person at the next table or knocking off some thing... More

Tucked away in the corner of Panjim near Althino. Goenchin is oldest Pan Asian restaurant of Panjim. Interiors are in line to any chinese place, reminds me of restaurants in Tangra, Kolkata. The staff is over enthusiastic to serve and is well trained. Standard line-up at the bar and for food, we have tried, Balinese Soup, Roast Lamb in Babycorn,... More

So a lot fo locals swear by the food at Goenchin, and I went there with a lot of expectations. The service is good, the food is average, and the place is a little to cloyingly red. Basically now with the multiple options available for Chinese in Goa, I would not call it the best place to go to for... More

Goenchin has been a lifetime food affair.... for as long I can remember it's never been wrong . Great food , excellent service with simple decor. My kids had to have a Goenchin meal to satisfy their soul . Now grown up they still think the same !!

Visited on the recommendation of family and certainly not disappointed. Tasty food, helpful staff and obviously a very popular eating place. Staff suggested ordering some starters only to begin with and in the end they were plentiful (& delicious!)

Being pampered by authentic Chinese food and awesome services in Canada, I gotta say that I was very impressed with this place in Goa, though it was even pricier than back home and the food was not top-notch fresh. Still the best adaptation of Chinese food in a foreign land, I'd say. Roses for ladies upon departure were such a... More

Location is a bit odd , and parking is a curse. Otherwise a beautiful place to enjoy authentic Chinese and Tibetan dishes. The restaurant is a 2 nos of 2BHK flat joined and renovated , with oriental decorations. Quantity of food is abundant , and the quality matches price . Do a budget of Rs 1500/- per head with standard... More

We usually visit with friends during our annual pilgrimage to Goa and are never disappointed. A great range of local and multi cuisine dishes make it ideal for groups with mixed tastes. One of the oldest restaurants in the area makes for an entertaining and "risk free" dining experience. We have always been impressed and will return.
