A Lua welcomes you to a typical Goan set up with seating arrangments in the dark interiors of an old Goan villa, out on the verandah and also in the garden amidst the chirping of the birds. The setup and ambience are similar at their Merces (just outside Panaji) and Verna (near Margao) outlets, as is the extensive menu. A Lua claims to be the only Goan cuisine restaurant chain in Goa. Though they specialize in Goan food, they serve decent North Indian, European and Chinese as well. Options include starters, soups, salads, seafood, North Indian vegetarian and non-veg dishes, some Chinese, some Tandoori and European. Their Prawn Balchao and home-style Mackerel Curry Rice are in keeping with the Goan tradition. Stuffed Squids and crabs are a speciality here. The Chicken Shashlik with huge chunks of chicken, makes for a complete meal in itself. The Chicken Tikka Masala is a good bet in the Indian section. Dessert offerings include Goan Caramel Custard, Bebinca and kulfi. They also have a party hall.
