Its posh, its peppy, it's a place for fun and families on Morjim Beach. Known for its Goan food, proprietor Austin has a small multi-cuisine section to pamper the palate of the diner. The restaurant Is aptly named 'By the Bay' although most locals know it as 'Montego Bay'. With a seating area right by the beach, the food complements the picture postcard setting with modest pricing. Start with the Mussels Masala Fry or the Stuffed Crabs. This place is known for its seafood. And while you are at it order a Goan comfort. This feni based cocktail, a speciality of Goa is recommended to get high really fast. But don't float too soon as the mains are yet to come. The Goan Prawn Curry Rice with Pomfret Recheado is a must. Those who prefer the sweeter flavour try the Prawn Caldeen. Mix it with rice and slurp it down. Vegans try the Mushroom Xacutti for the Goan flavour. This is not only a place for dining. Sit by the beach and let the wind feather your brow as you sit under the trees. Order a Mojito, if you're tired and want to get fresh or perhaps a Sex on the beach..if you are fresh and want to get tired. But jokes apart you can never get tired in this place. Nibble on Batter Fried Squids or Tandoori Tiger Prawns. Anytime of the day there is a special for you. Watch the twinkling stars with the famous shooters, and we are not referring to the shooting stars but the Barmans special -Liquid Cocaine or a Kamikaze. This place has created a right mix for you....from the food Prawn Thai Curry, Paneer Chilli, Assorted Kebabs, Seafood Platter to name a few to the spirits. Literally speaking of course.

A republic is a form of government that has supreme control over - in this case 'the noodle'. It is a well known fact that the noodle migrated to various parts of the Far East and here is the Republic of Noodles which serves an authentic range of noodles, besides stir fries and clay pots curries. There is classical South East Asian fare from Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia and Burma with signature hot sauces that are not typical in other places and which adds a special flavour to the meal. The decor is al fresco, casual dining with a mix of sofa seating and cane chairs, subtle lighting and decorative pieces. Take a look at what is on offer - for starters try the Barbecued Pork Spare Ribs or the Thai Garlic Pepper Prawns. One sweet and tangy with honey sauce, the other peppery as the name suggests. For mains try the Jungle Curry of Chicken and Green Peppercorns. Move over to Thailand for the Northen Thai Khao Soi, another choice of country to Burma for the Burmese Curry with Potatoes. If pork catches your fancy then try the Braised Pork with Pokchoy. The spices entwined in these preparations really works wonders to the salivary glands. Order the accompanying noodles, the Laotian Drunken Noodles or the old favourite Bangkok-style Phad Thai. Would you like to know how far the noodle can stretch? You will need a breather after all that food. However, there is always room for expansion for the Indonesian Banana Fritters with honey crunch ice cream or the Water Chestnut Rubies in sweetened coconut milk. The desserts are compatible with the Indian palate. Remember the word republic is also derived from a Latin phrase res publica translated as 'a public affair'. This experience is definitely an affair for the public to remember.
