Having never been to Palolem before, this place was highly recommended by both my husband and my sister. My husband actually calls it ‘one of the best places to eat in India’. It really didn’t disappoint. In fact, in our 6 day stay in Palolem, we visited Dropadi 3 times, meeting the owner on our last visit. The tandoor food... More

Lovely view from the restaurant. Just dine listening to the waves. Was good to sit after the swim. Food was on the higher side but was good.

During our recent visit to palolem goa we decided to visit this place as it was very close to our hotel and on the beach... we ordered couple of beers before we headed to our next stop at ashvem. The servers really need training on how to talk to thier guests. 1. Rude 2. Racist 3. Talk senseless The hotel... More

A very good restaurant on Palolem beach. Excellent service with friendly and well-mannered staff. Ordered one of the specials – seafood mixed grill (one of the more expensive dishes) but the portion size was large and could have fed two people. Good tandoori. Can get very busy and you may have to wait for a table. It will be worth... More

Reliable good - probably costs a bit more than some - interesting "people watching" view of beach if nothing else!

Compared to other restaurants in paloem it's at least twice the price and food was average. My vindaloo wasn't spicy at all (I'm sure they gave me a rogan josh) and it was definitely lacking flavour, the rice was o.k but expense and the garlic naan was tasty. Nice view and the staff seemed pleasant enough.

We found Dropadi to be among the better eating places in the Palolem beach area. Very clean, reasonably wide selection of dishes, and courteous staff. The time to visit is after sunset. If you go early enough, it would be possible to grab a seat in the front row overlooking the beach.
