We've been going to Ma Goa for years and it only gets better. Consistently fabulous food, good welcome and great ambience. The food is delicious – lamb curries, seafood biryani and fried paneer and broccoli are my favourite.

Bright and colourful décor. Friendly and prompt service - dishes arriving in good time but not too quickly allowing time for talking. We went with friends who had been before. The menu wasn't too extensive - sometimes that denotes a lack of quality - and...More

Lovely atmosphere to restaurant; kind, warm and welcoming staff. Paneer and broccoli samosa for starter was high quality; very neat and fully packed. Lamb shank (on waiter's recommendation) was delicious; meat fell off the bone, excellent depth of flavour, if slightly overpowered with heat. Saffron...More

At Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed down the generations. Our menu takes inspiration from all regions of India but we have a passion for Goa. Since its opening in 1993, we have won critical acclaim & we take pride in the fact that we are a genuine family-run independant restaurant. Our mission has always been to serve tasty, fresh, unpretentious home-style paired with incredible craft beers from our tap wall. Situated 2 minutes away from Putney British Rail & 5 minutes away from East Putney Tube it makes a perfect venue before a night on the town. We also offer a popular take-away & local delivery service via Deliveroo & UberEats & a party catering service. We look forward to welcoming you to Ma Goa soon.
