What is the Goan recipe for happiness? Good food and a Susegad lifestyle. The most important aspect in every local Goan's mind is what is cooking in their curry pot. And invariably it is fish. Susegad is the Goan laid-back approach to life… families found partaking in a meal together. And there is a place in Panaji with the elements of a casual environment - the bustle of waiters, the clink of crockery and the clang of the thalis as they emerge from the kitchen onto the table. Ritz Classic! This multi-cuisine restaurant offers Indian, Chinese, Tandoori and Goan food. The Goan Fish Thali is the traditional fare - a bountiful spread of the Xitt-Kodi (rice and prawn curry), Prawn Kishmur (a perfect mix with it), a fresh fish fried to perfection, the Teesroi (shellfish) with coconut, a local preparation of vegetable which is changed everyday… and for digestion the Sol Kodi (a kokum drink). When crabs are available, the thali is dressed with a spicy mix of the Crab Masala. Mouth-watering fare! For an la carte meal, try the Squid Masala Fry or Crab Dry Fry. It will 'dry-fry' your senses after it has absorbed every salivary juice in the chewing process. Although Goan favourites like Chicken Xacuti are available, the seafood is definitely recommended. Baby Chonak Tandoori is another 'hot' favourite served piping hot from the Tandoor. If you find a long line of people waiting to be served, do not despair. The service is not Susegad. This place firmly believes in VFM (very fast movement as well as value for money). Imbibe a jostling 'festa' atmosphere of fish and food at Ritz Classic.

Ritz is surely back to its best! I visited it on a weekday n still it had loads of ppl waiting for a seat! The Fish Thali comprising of prawns curry, clamps, Crabs masala, bangda kismur, Lady fish fry,solkadi,roti,rice for just 110 rs!! Unbelievable!! We also had chicken tikka which was delicous along with chicken dum biryani which was very well made! The best dish though was d White Snapper Reshad masala fry! Devine.. no other words! Best meal i ever had in goa hands down! The service was prompt too seeing the rush there! Highly recomended!

The place is a must try if you are in this area and if you love eating fish. They show you which fish they are going to cook for you before they prepare the meal, so you know whats in your meal. The service is fast and the people are friendly. Although not much of an ambiance, the place is very crowded on weekends, so you might have to wait a little bit for your turn to get a table. I am not sure if they take reservations, but enquire once if you dont wanna wait too long. The fish curry prepared at this place is very very tasty. the food is prepared authentic Goan style, so its definitely a must try for the locals as well as the tourists!! :)
