Goa Indian Farm Kitchen
The food was spectacular, especially the branzino and jackfruit dishes.
However, the service left much to be desired. Our server was very awkward and lacked the basic etiquette that most servers demonstrate. He never once did a quality check on the drinks or food which is frankly unacceptable. He also disappeared once our food arrived and never showed up to even offer us more drinks while our glasses were empty for a while. We eventually had to call someone over from the bar who called our server. He then vanished and another server took over. Really underwhelming experience overall as dining for me is an experience, not just eating.
Delicious food and great service. The restaurant is cold though. Need to turn the heat up a bit.
Pleasantly surprised by the size and flavour of the appetizers, especially the eggplant. Butter chicken and seafood curry mains were good; not so impressed by the jackfruit dish though. Overall a food experience and I will go again when I crave some Indian food.
Great modern takes on traditional Indian food, delicious!
I found some of the dishes too spicy but in general our party of 4 enjoyed everything (we shared). Service wasn't superior as I remember it the previous time but it was fine. Only real issue was with noise. We went on a Sunday evening so I would have hoped it would not be so noisy.
There were three of us and we arrived at different time. Our wait staff was very attentive, coming around too many times to see how we were doing. So we were relieved that we could finally place our orders. Throughout dinner he also gave us far too much attention and I wish we were left alone to enjoy our meal and conversation.
The food was excellent.
The noise level was very high and it was difficult to have conversation.
We ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Our waiter did a superb job of picking our food and the wine for us. Definitely going back to try other dishes.
Hello, thank you for your review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again soon.
Food was good. Fixed price lunch menu is good. It was pretty busy which shows it’s a very popular place. Indicated that we were celebrating a Birthday when booking through Open Table website and they had no idea we were. Ordered Crab cakes as an appetizer. Asked fir them before the meal and they didn’t come. Had to ask for them and they were not worth the cost. Stick with the items on the fixed price menu I guess.
Overall good and tasty food.
Food was good however the servers were pretty rude.
The food was very good. Servers need more training and some smiles. Our server was clueless.
The food was excellent and the service was very good. It is relatively small and located in a mall which is open to the traffic. That is not the best for ambiance. However the decor and general attitude of the staff is very good. Well worth the visit.
Hi Doug. Thank you for your kind words. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and had a positive experience with us. We can't wait to see you again.
The food was too salty. Also, even though I’m usually a fan of spicy food, the food here was unbearably spicy. The naan and cauliflower dish were delicious. Service was good

Hi Leila, thank you for coming to Goa. We're glad you enjoyed your first Goan food experience. We can't wait for you to be back!
Amazing food! Had a great meal. Only complaint is the extremely slow service when the place was only half full at normal dinner time. Appetizers came out very quickly but the main courses took at least 20 minutes and not all came out at the same time. Servers were great so not their fault but maybe need more kitchen staff.
Hi Izzy. Great to hear you enjoyed to food! Regarding the service, we will be sure to share this with the team. Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon.
The 3 course special meals for September is excellent and great value. The service was attentive and we were given good recommendations. The wine pairings complimented the meal perfectly.

Took my family for a birthday celebration.
"Not another Indian place again ma," said my adult kids.
However they were pleasantly surprised with the place and enjoyed everything that was ordered. i.e. except the vegan mango lassi.
Once again in their words, it was "finger licking good".
Will most definitely visit again with friends.
Want to find quality Indian food at a reasonable price. This is a place you should try.

A positive experience overall, however, the lamb could have been a tad bit soft.

This restaurant was a very nice surprise, the food is amazing, by far the best indian food I ever had! Try the okra and prawn curry, sweet potato chaad was lovely too.
We will return for sure.
Our server made himself a limonade that is not on the menu and I knew about, such a nice gesture!
A little pricey but very good quality.
Waiter very helpful with menu suggestions! Second time here in 4 days. Food is delicious!
Wow Margaret, thank you so much for your support. We're glad you enjoyed the food and service. We hope to see you again soon.
Had a very nice dinner at Goa kitchen. Service was excellent and the food was very delicious. I didnt enjoy the rose they had and after I told the waiter he took the glass of my bill. I really appreciated that. I dont think the dishes are very authentically goan but its a nice modern twist on Indian food.

Terrific food. We were a party of 6 so we sampled appetizers from eggplant, chicken chicken char real,seafood. The main courses ranged from fish , short ribs and seafood. The mushroom biryani was a welcome accompaniment.

My favourite restaurant! Excellent, personalized service (thanks, Ali!).
Maria, your review means a lot to us! We will be sure to share this with Ali. Thank you.
As a Goan I’d like to say that this place had about 5-6 Goan dishes with the rest of the menu featuring Indian dishes.(Branding is way off). The place seems like pompous and vain which shows that the place is trying to hard to be something it’s not. The ambience was not too bad, had pictures of certain places in Goa, but in almost all of the pictures, it had pictures of foreigners that visit Goa rather than actual Goans. The service wasn’t too great either, the server we had couldn’t speak English very well and another server while me and my partner were engaging in conversation about the menu, blatantly interrupted us to add his take on it(No one asked your opinion). And now to the food. We ordered the shrim balchao, Goan seafood curry and basmati rice. The shrimp balchao was really good almost like the real deal. The rice was quite pleasant to eat as well. The seafood curry had a very delicious flavour when it comes to the curry itself, however the scallops were over cooked and really chewy while the mussels weren’t too great either. The shrimp in the curry and the balchao were spot on though. Overall, I would like to let the owner and chef know that the food was just above average while everything else was sub par. You are opened up a business in a location that doesn’t suit your target audience and the audience you are targeting is completely wrong. Work on your prices to make them more reflective of the quality of the food. It’s no wonder that we and another group of 4 were the only ones there on a Sunday at 8pm while the restaurant Tabule in the same complex was buzzing with people.
Excellent time - will definitely go back.
The food was fresh and delicious - we tried the Chicken Xacutti and the Beef Vindaloo, with the Spicy Cauliflower as our starter. We recommend each of the dishes!
The staff (especially our server - Manpreet) were warm, courteous and provided us with excellent service throughout.
We were also extremely happy to find that the meat was Halal. They also have good options for vegetarians and vegans. Highly recommended to everyone.
