“Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

Excellent choice, very good value. Chef came out to make sure we were happy with our choices - nice touch.
Only down side was impatient waitress - felt very rushed.

“Good Goa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

We have been to the Café Goa twice and have found it to be really good. The food is Indian in essence and is of a very high quality. We ate here last night and had bhaji and chicken tikka for starters, and beef biryani and the Goa special combo plate for mains. All were prepared to the highest standard. The service is perhaps a little slow and the tables a wee bit close together but neither the service or the crowded room is bad enough to be a real problem. Come to the Café Goa with friends when you have time to spend and enjoy very good Indian food that is reasonably priced. We have to drive 30 miles to get there and will certainly be going there again soon!

“Go to Goa!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Genuinely the best Indian food I have ever tasted - and Ive done my research!!! I have been to Cafe Goa numerous times as a couple, with family and with friends. We have always ordered a variety of dishes and every meal is as good as the next! Service also excellent! Looking forward to coming back!

“Never too sure !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

We have been to cafe Goa about 3 or 4 times now , usually by default ( some one else books) and I'm never sure what to make of it .
It's a tiny room ,,and tables are crammed in , you may as well be sitting with the people at the next table , so no privacy at all
Food is nice , and flavoursome , but I don't like the idea of charging extra for rice €2 I think ,when the main dish has already cost €15 for an average bowl size of curry.
One girl usually works the room alone , so she can be busy ,don't wait til the end of your beer to order another, ask half way down , then it might arrive when you need it .!!!
There is a nice atmosphere here though , and if your not too bothered about where you want to meet up , eat and chat , then this place might work for you .
One toilet for all, which can also be hit and miss at times. Pardon the pun !
