Shan is an asset to this place - charismatic and customer-centric - I'll miss having drinks on the beach watching the sunset eating my choice of freshly caught fish (many thanks to the chef). We stayed in one of their huts which was basic, but comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend this place - lively, fun and excellent value for money!

When we arrived in Palolem we came here first as it was next to our accommodation. We met Sean, who manages the found things. He was very friendly and helpful, and gave good advice on what food to order. Our favorite ended up been the paneer mushroom masala, but in general all the food was amazing, we tried a lot... More

We stayed in a raised bungalow next door. The Found Things had an awesome atmosphere, fabulous food, cold beer and great friendly service. Shaun was great as was all the people who worked there. Fresh seafood was offered every night as well as beautiful Indian food. 10/10 for the Aloo Paratha.

We could have easily given this restaurant a miss, as it never figured in any of the best restaurants list (including tripadvisor's). Since our Roundcube package included breakfast at the Found Things, we got chatting with the staff here, and he insisted we have lunch at his place. Our 1st meal at Drupadi was a disappointment to say the least... More

We hadn't book any accommodation when we arrived to Palalem. Seneta who owns the clothes shop asked us if we wanted a room and showed us The Found Things. The cabins are basic. They have a bed, mosi net, fan, toilet and shower and was 1100r a night. The staff were so friendly, all remember you name and when you... More

We stayed in the hut next door for 4 nights and the guys that run this bar could not have been any friendlier. We had breakfast there every morning which was good. No problems with service. All food and drink reasonably priced. The food is good. We tried butter chicken and Goan prawn curry which was excellent. Its easy to... More

I like to visit the Found things because of the location towards the end of the beach where the sea is calmer, but this season unfortunately I have been very let down by the complete lack of service there. Three times now I've been using one of their very rickety sunbeds and ordered a drink...only to find that I've had... More

My wife and I have spent a couple days at the beach shack for lunch and were asked to return on the evening of my birthday where the guys put up a birthday banner and balloons, Sinita organised a cake with candles, the whole nine yards.
