My partner and I eat here on the regular and each time the quality and service keeps getting better and better. If you're up for a great feed, this is the place for you. The lamb is off the bone!! Literally. Love it.

Dropped in here on the off chance and were really pleasantly surprised by both the menu and the service. A vary different menu from the usual and the food was great. Highly recommended

Excellent find by my other half. Great food, particularly the Sorpotel starter (Goan stew). Fantastic service considering how busy the restaurant was. Please try... but reserve a table. Deservedly busy!More

At Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed downthe 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 cooking in a warm & friendly setting. 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.
