Ate here today for the first time and couldn't fault a thing. The decor and setting is lovely, the staff and service we received were fab and the food was absolutely delicious. Can't recommend this place enough. Will be back to try more dishes foe sure 😀

Went as a family of 8, the restaurant was so busy but service was still fab! Waited a little while for the food which was understandable but amazing quality food! The restaurant itself is done out beautiful. Definitely the best Indian in Sunderland by far.

Me and the wife absolutely love Goa, by far our favourite Indian restaurant in the area. Have been here by ourselves and also been with the kids as its in the perfect location right next to the amusements. The service is always excellent and the food is always of a high standard with huge portions. Can't see any Indian restaurant... More

Visited on a week night at about 6.30pm. We didn't have a reservation but were shown to a table straightaway. Veg Samosa, Tikka Chicken Balti, plain pilau and a naan were £10.95 from the special menu. A glass of decent house red accompanied the meal. The service was attentive without being intrusive, and the food was tasty. The views of... More

After numerous recommendations we decide to try Goa for a meal. The outside looks dirty and uninvited guest but once you are through the door the decor is lovely and the restaurant is very clean. We ordered from the specials menu - 4 courses for £10.95. The food was ok, nothing spectacular. However the sundries cost more than the meal.... More

This was a perfect location on a bitterly cold North-East night - looking for somewhere to eat we stumbled into the doorway of Goa. Well designed and furnished entrance area and upstairs a restaurant with an amazing view of the beach and the North Sea. Nothing better than being in the warm, eating curry watching the sea crash onto the... More
