Visited the restaurant for lunch on a Sunday & was told that there was a 30 minute wait. Since it was just 12.45 pm, we decided that we would wait for 30 minutes since the reviews were so amazing. It took us 1 hr 15...minutes to get a table. Till then we were standing in a hot congested & over crowded waiting area. The restaurant itself is very dirty. The entire place stinks from the foul smell emerging from the bathroom. We ordered a prawns thali, mori(shark thali) and kingfish thali. Food was below average. No taste at all. I had huge expectations considering the long waiting queues & hype but was very disappointed. They charge Rs450 plus taxes per thali. The quantity of items served in the thali was very less. Rice is served later when you ask for it. Sweet dish is also served later only when you ask about it. Right from the curry to solkadi to fish fry to gulab jamun was tasteless & sub par. Nor do they have any ambience. So how can they justify such a high price?? Famous restaurants in Goa charge less price for fish thali where quantity, quality & ambience is so good. We vistited another restaurant called as Malvan Food Station at Chivala beach hotel. This restaurant is at 2 mins walking distance from Atithi Bamboo. The place is very clean and well ventilated. Polite helpful staff. Moreover food is very delicious, quick service & large serving quantity. Price is also very less than Atithi Bamboo. We ended up eating all of our remaining meals at Food Station. Also got some Malvani chicken curry parcelled for our trip back to Goa. The food was that yummy. Will definitely recommend Food Station restaurant at hotel chivala beach. Athithi Bamboo is a huge AVOID!!More

A Value for money restaurant at Malvan , there are a variety of fish thalis which have amazing quantity and are super tasty and value for moner

The items given in the Thalis were meager. Ordered a Shark Fish and a King Fish Thali. Both were lacking..... Shark was lacking in taste and the fried King Fish piece was very thin. Not what is expected in a fishing Village. Ordered a side...order of Crabs Dry Masala No Gravy and was given Three small Crabs dipped in Rava and Deep fried (!). Of this Two were stale. RETURNED! Rice had to be asked for as only maida-fied Chappaties are given. The Fish Curry was not too bad but should have been better. A very lousy experience at a supposedly Famous Restaurant. We'd gone on a FridayMore

We went there with high expectations as everyone suggested is to go there, there was waiting and it took us 20mins to get a table which was more like a community table. We asked for menu card and the menu card had fish curry spilled...on it and no one took the effort to clean it. The glasses were looking dirty. The table was properly cleaned and when asked we asked the staff to clean they were like least interested. Let’s get to ordering food now, we ordered 4 thalis, 2 mutton thalis, 1 prawns and 1 Mori (baby shark) mutton thali, mutton was just uncooked and horrible, when asked the waiter he said its very hard to find good mutton in Malvan, when we asked why he didn’t tell this when we ordered he went silent. The guy brought our thalis and in my thali he had kept his ordering pad on the chapattis. He even argued when asked for chapatti instead of bhakri. The mutton was uncooked and it just spoiled our mood, as we waited for it for about 30-40 mins. With that said Mori mutton was genuinely tasty and even fried prawns. Bottom line there are many better restaurants this is just hyped and the success has gone into their heads, totally avoid this. I rate it zero stars as the overall experience was pathetic.More
