A very nice restaurant where one can order a bowl of splendid rice and a Goan curry to go with it. Non-veg and sea food here is good.

I had eaten at the Rice Bowl numerous times & was always very satisfied with my meals. Big portions, & great value! There is a pool table as well which was a lot of fun to play with the employees!

This restarant was next to my hotel. It serves good gaon currys and fish. But the best part of the restaurant is its desserts. The homemade caramel custard was so awesome that we went their daily, just to eat it.

This place was closer to the place we stayed, so strolled into rice bowl for dinner one day. I found the food ok. Nothing to write home about. The staff was really friendly.
