Extremely average with the food. Service was excellent,ambience was decent but food very average. In n area spoilt with choices mustard will have to up the game up in the quality of food otherwise they will be game for competition
To come to Goa and leave without a meal at Mustard was the highest form of blasphemy for Amrita ( my wife ) and I .
Our Mustard experience was always stupendously successful and Mustard was always top class , and we would recommend it...to all and sundry - today we had Four Guests and walked away with egg on our faces - when it was in its old location at Salgoda and the Freedom Tree .
Today the dream of excellence was shattered to pieces by the most terrible and horrible service and cuisine we have ever had the privilege to be subjected to in and by Mustard .
It’s also our last .
The Last Meal in Mustard Goa or wherever . Deleted !
The drinks were ordered and the two bar keepers could not get it right . The Bloody Mary’s came in tacky and cheap mini glasses . Two orders from the main orders only arrived after I had to really yell at them .
The Koshur Mangsho was a Rara Meat cooked in punjabi style of dry meat . The mutton was from two different lots - one well cooked and the other half of the dish was raw and chewy - and simply boiled and added to old gravy . Such Garbage .
The Luchhis arrived with The complimentary sweet dish , after all food was over and the size was of a Punjabi Puri and not a Bengali Luchhi -for we gave ( 6 Pax) the Chef such a hiding for garbage well prepared and served so blatantly .
The Chingri Macchhaaer Malaikari was a simple bland curry that had no meaningful taste or zest , but for a slight yellow base with no flavours of the Kassundi .
The Cholar Dal was hard and uncooked and could be used to pave the driveway .
I called the chef and asked him to test the Meat and the Dal and he refused to do so - for he could well see from afar the garbage he had put on the table .
The Lamb in Red wine and the Spinach Crepe’s were very good . Amrita and Usha got lucky .
Mustard had done the beach catering from my wife’s 60th on the beach in Candolim and it was a runaway success .
Today was a mitigated disaster of unsurmountable proportions .
Good Bye Mustard .More

Hello Mr. Robin,
We are really sorry to hear about your experience at our cafe on your last visit.
We sincerely apologise for the delay in service of the drinks and the Kosha Manghso falling short on taste.
We have taken it up with both...More
We visited on Wednesday night with friends and were immediately impressed by the warm welcome we received at this new restaurant in Anjuna.
The main seating area is located in a beautiful peaceful garden behind an old Portuguese house. The house itself has a small...bar, indoor seating area and coffee shop as well as a kitchen store and clothes shop. Like the outdoor garden area it's beautifully arranged and decorated.
We love the food in Goa, always one of the highlights of our holiday here. We had heard about mustard from friends so were really looking forward to our evening and we were not disappointed.
The menu offers a mix of Bengali and French food. Our party enjoyed both and both were delicious!
I had the Bengali vegetarian mezze platter as a starter. The flavours were heavenly. My wife would have a taste and before I knew it she was hooked and helped me finish it! There was plenty for the two of us even though it was on the small plates section. I followed with chicken cordon bleu and crème broule both superb. My wife had the grilled fish and strawberry tart, the latter big enough to let me have a taste too. She was full of praise for both dishes.
This was some of the best food we have enjoyed, enhanced by the tranquil ambience of the restaurant's garden setting and the friendly attentive staff.
We would highly recommend this restaurant as a must place to visit in Goa.
Wednesday is musical night at the restaurant with the brilliantly gifted Krishna playing original covers of many well known and not so well known songs. A real treat on top of the delicious food.More
Having eaten at Mustard in Mumbai, we decided to try out the one ` in Goa.
Ambience- lovely, outdoors, old world charm but can be hot in summers.
Food: loved it except the mutton chops which were too too tough
Parking : plenty....Wheel chair Accessible: yes
Value for Money: yes.
Will we go back again: yes! We did go again in April'19 but to our disappointment they were closed & a signage said, we are re-locating.
So we shall look forward to finding it on Google next time!More
We loved the Bengali cuisine and ambience of the place. If you are a foodie, do visit. Don't forget to try the spicy tamarind cooler and never miss prawns on a trip to Goa.More

Thanks so much for the kind review! It's great to hear that you enjoyed the tamarind drink Tentul Joler Sherbet and our prawn dishes. Next time you are here, you could try the Aam Porar Sherbet too, if mangoes are in season.
Had lunch here at the end of our holiday last year and loved it. So pleased to discover that it is still here this year. Had lunch last week, and it was fabulous. Such an interesting and varied menu. It makes it difficult to chose!....The food, the service and the ambiance are all 5 star, and I can't wait to go again.More
Mustard is a lovely restaurant offering the unusual mix of both Bengali and French cuisine. The dishes are not combined, but each cuisine is subtly influenced by the other, giving the diner a wonderful experience.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. That's a very nice compliment.
This charming little restaurant is still delivering on excellent food and unique concept. The staff are well trained, courteous and warm. The seating in the garden was relaxed and enjoyable.
As we were large group we ordered a bit of everything. The grilled vegetable and...pesto sandwiches were nice with quality ingredients and generous helping pesto. The Bengali cuisine did not disappoint either. The prawns malai-curry was made deftly without overt use of cream. The prawn heads added extra flavor, full marks to the chef for not discarding them. The cocktails were also very well done.
On to the deserts, Bhapa doi, kheer komola and brownie were easy on the palette after a heavy meal. However, the pantua was a bit chewy and hard center.
Staff took the feedback earnestly and promised pass it to the kitchen. The request for waving off the service charge was also complied without a complaint.
This restaurant remains unique and superb place to invite family and friends for introduction to Bengali food. Well done Mustard!More
As a French family living in India, we enjoyed very much the French food served in the restaurant (blanquette, risotto, filet...). Fine cuisine. Only a wider choice of wine would be welcome. Nice place.

Thank you Sandrine! It's so nice to hear that you enjoyed our French offerings. We will look into your suggestion about a wider choice of wine. Warm regards,
The Mustard team.
