Taking a break from spicy food whilst visiting India can suddenly seem a necessity. This well appointed restaurant gives a fine opportunity to do so. The mushroom cappuccino flavoured with truffle oil is delicious and the tenderloin also excellent. We both had the beef and it was perfectly cooked. Combined with a good red wine, made for the Taj group,... More

We went in a group of around 15. Ordered the food at one go and had also briefed them about the sequence for bringing them in... They mixed it up completely and also found the quality and taste of food to be quiet average. I felt there's scope for improvement...

I wasnt staying at the Taj, just visited for a meal. I was wrongly directly to the floor below by an employee, until somebody redirected me. This restaurant is at lobby level. Ambience, appearance and price is what you would expect from a five (or more) star hotel. I was served a small glass of mango juice on seating myself.... More

A restaurant in Goa which is lavish and hence not crowded at all - yet everything is available! A good place to relax, indulge yourself and enjoy the garden & sea-views. Kitchen is open .. you can interact with the chef. We had Basil Pesto Pasta which was awesome! Pizzas were also very nicely cooked.
