“Best place for Bhaji puri”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

This is the best place in Panjim to have bhaji puri, buns, samosas. This is far more better then the one in Patto in terms of rates. The rates are also quite reasonable

“Bhaji puri ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

This place used to make the best bhaji puri in panjim. Now though its standard has come down its still one of my favorites... I love their mushroom xacuti better than the other bhajis try it !

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

I went there after reading all the glowing reviews, but feel it's overrated. The best thing I can say about it is that it's really cheap - Rs.50 for a puri bhaji up in the a/c section.

It's specialty is bhaji - wet or dry or a combo of both, with puri or pao and mirchi fry. But the taste isn't much different to more than a few local restaurants I've had the same thing at.

The puris were made with flour, bland and white and not the hot crisp brown ones I like. The bhaji was a bit bland but ok with the mirchi fry. Probably wouldn't be going back again too soon.

“Cheap, clean, great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

This is one of those breakfast like places you might be familiar with in the cities. Nothing fancy at all about this place except that the food is very very simple, so simple and at the first look u might wonder if this is what u really came for! But taste the bun and pao and u will know thats what made all the difference. The sukhi bhaji is just out of the world when eaten with their pao and bun. They make it so darn well. We were three of us and I guess we ordered way more than what usually ppl do because we couldnt stop eating this!

The owner is a sweet gentlemen who helps you around over the fone if ur lost, which happened to us!

U must try this place if u happen to be around Panaji ! Absolutely brilliant food and so cheap!

“My first choice for veg fast food in Panaji”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

For me, this is certainly the first choice place for having veg fast food which is basically Goan / Konkan food like puri bhaaji, etc. Taste is very good which is the main thing. Price is reasonable (not very cheap). The only problem is to find parking near this Cafe, its really very very hard (bike parking is manageable. Overall its very good & recommended.
