Get into the Goan spirit. Enjoy the colourful ambience and the Goan fare as much as meeting the equally colourful and affable owner-couple, Suhas and Deepa Awchat. Go to Goa: it resides in Mahim in a colourful Portuguese "bungalow". Officially recognized by the Government of Goa, this 24 year young, pioneering resto-bar, serving Goan and Portuguese cuisines has also been featured in the New York Times and several other international newspapers. Goa Portugesa opens in Andheri. Sudeep Awchat, the 24-year-old son of the colourful, owner-couple, Deepa and Suhas Awchat sets up here. Gone is the thematic cute ambience (which I prefer), and all three restaurants (Diva Maharashtracha, Culture Curry) are housed together in a contemporary building and also have a common composite menu. In both places, there is superb Prawn Curry-Rice and the Portuguese Galinha Cafreal are the highlights. While the Pork Vindaloo is not as good, the Tender Coconut Cashew Nut Sukke dish is outstanding. Who says Goan food is all about Pork Sorpotel and Fish 'n Prawn Curry? There's more: Balchao, Xacutti, Bombay Duck stuffed with Crab Meat and Stuffed Mussels are all worth trying. Interestingly, it serves shakahari food as well, made in a dedicated kitchen, with more than fifty pure-vegetarian dishes. ”Orgasmic Organs” feature bheja and kaleji. Do ask for the Succulent Roast Turkey, superb Portuguese Serradura dessert. Enjoy the lively Goan music, knock-back drinks from the lively small bar (plenty of imported wines too). P.S Check out the power lunch Rs. 499 and the steamed and grilled dishes being introduced too.

Just as u enter, the decor takes your breath away . the goa theme is authentic and the food is delicious. the guy on the guitar is a star attraction. i also really enjoyed the sumptuous meal. I had booked my table through an online portal URBANRESTRO because of which i got a 15% discount off lunch. really good place to visit.

The Goan exotic experience has been brought to Mumbai by this Goa Portuguesa resto bar. This place is established in a bungalow which is of Portuguese style which actually makes one feel that he or she is in Goa. The food here is Goan and Portuguese and seafood being the most loved food in here. I have come here so many times just to enjoy the ambience over amazing food. Their Lobster Goa Portuguesa, Mutton Xacutti and Chicken Chettinad are what I love eating here. The dishes of Goa Portuguesa are worth paying money for and I love coming here.
