The place looks beautiful. Staff was courteous. Food was poor in taste. Grilled paneer starter was not juicy, taste was ok. Chutneys were poor in taste. Neer dosa, appm were average. Mix Veg gravy was very bad. Dessert sewai kheer was very low on taste....Food disappointed me. This is 'unchee dukaan feeka pakwan' kind of place. Expensive food too.More

Goa Portuguesa when I visited last had authenticity. But not today. May be they are trying to scale, it is loosing it. The malabari parathas was pre made. It is one of the worst kitchen decisions a chef makes to use pre-made malabari parathas and...reheat them. The authenticity of a fluffy malabari paratha is in preparing it live. The mutton stir fry tasted like chilli chicken. Sweet. But, the ambience is still good. The server Samir was excellent.More

The food is amazing here, must try for anyone who loves seafood especially! There’s so much variety and dishes to suit any and every taste palette. Our top picks: bombil fry, andhra prawns and chicken cafreal for starters and pomfret ghassi and appams for mains....Service here is excellent as well. We dined here on Christmas and Santa made a guest appearance and greeted us all with lovely goodies. Kids around us were really happy! Superb planning by the restaurant! Overall, must visit place every time we are in the area! Can’t wait to dine here again!More

I really like this restaurant because both veg and non veg guys can have a decent tasty meal. With a typical Goan ambience in the interiors , the welcoming atmosphere coupled with good service makes it a nice experience. They also have a guitarist for...folk's entertainment. The staff is very polite. You get 3 menu cards,serving great variety of food. Best part, they let you order halfsies- so that even if you are a single non veg person in a group you can try multiple dishes without wasting much! Yay!! I have ordered Prawns Rissois: cooked in creamy while sauce and filled with cheese chicken Roulde: chicken breasts stuffed with mushrooms and cheese Tender coconut cashew nut sukke: tender coconut and tomato sauteed with tomatoes paneer Bali Bali: paneer in red gravy crab sukka: crab with shells in a typical Goan mix veg chettinad: one of the best I ever had outisde south India Mutton Vindaloo: mutton in red masala In desserts my favourite would be vellayappam, a delicacy of Kerala and Halwa. Eventhough it might seem a little pricy, food make it worth your money. No qualms about the quality whatsoever!More

Goa Portuguesa is a lovely place to eat with family and friends. Nice Goan Portuguese ambiance. Food is awesome. Apams are just too good.......Service is ok. Special desserts such as modak icecream, Bebinca, puranpoli icecream are some of the Out Of The Box features of...this restaurant. Valve for Money: A bit expensive. Overall experience: Will rate 8/10. A must go if you are a food lover.More

Great choice of Food on the menu right from South Indian to Malwani and Goan dishes!! The Bombil Fry and the Goan fish curry with white rice is a great combination to go for! The Kerala food is not up to the mark, simply because...they don’t use coconut oil to cook the food. Excellent service by Vikas!More

The experience was far below expectation especially in terms of the reservation and later the service. Advance reservation has got no meaning unless you are a large team (more billing). After a table was allocated the service was pathetic....the restaurant was fully occupied and to...that respect it appeared to be understaffed. The eazy dinner offer may not be given automatically but you need to ask for it ....not a good gesture if one has to ask ! At the end the food was good !More

This restaurant has been around a long time, catering to the increasingly popular demand for Goan food. Goa Portuguesa has successfully maintained the quality and value for money that it has always offered. The ambience/decor however is a pot pourri of styles: with lots of...stained glass, mirrors, coloured lamps etc resulting in a rather kitschy effect, with just the exterior paying tribute to traditional Goan design.More

A tradition beyond food. Goa Portuguese serving goan delicacies for over 30 years. Went with my husband to savour some authentic Goan dishes. We ordered two cocktails of the menu 1. Mango Margarita A classic with mango twist comprising of Tequila, fresh mango chunks and...lime juice 2. Cuddles on the beach Vodka, strawberry crush, fresh mango with dash of cream. Both refreshing and very well made. Starters Mix veg & cashew croquettes Roll.of mix Vegetable and cashew nuts cooked with mild spice. Went very well with the mint chut. Rawas Mandovi - marinates with finger, garlic, chillies curd. Soft succulent flakey fish. Main course Chicken Vindaloo with pav - really authentic and well prepared dish. Perfectly spiced. Finger licking good. Sweetannu recommends strongly. Goan prawns curry rice - Silky smooth Goan curry served with long grain basmati rice. Excellent preparation. Kudos to the Chef. For dessert we tried Bebinca and Dodol. Both famous Goan desserts prepared during festivities and happy occasions. A perfect way to end this fabulous meal.More

Goa Portuguesa is an ancient restaurant in Mahim existing since 30 yrs now. Lead by Chef Deepa Awchat and her husband Dr. Suhas Awchat who have carefully curated the menu and added their touch to everything in the restaurant. The detailing is just too much...and too good. The staff is very warm and makes you feel at home. Menu is pretty compact and the dishes are cooked with immense care. We ordered the following: ⚜️ Alphonso delight A beautiful drink prepared with fresh mangoes and cream. The drink is creamy and a treat to the soul. Highly recommended ✔️✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Watermelon kiwi blast Similar to the Alphonso delight, this Mocktail also has cream but watermelon and kiwi in this case. Another treat to the soul. Lovely drink. Highly recommended ✔️✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Prawns Risoise A true Goan delight made like a karanji but the filling has prawns and some creamy texture inside. This is a crispy delight. Moderately recommended ✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Rawas Mandovi Wow just wow. Fresh fish with a nice marinade. Total class apart. I would super highly recommend this. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Tender Coconut Sukke This is something different I have ever tried. Coconut flesh cooked like a sabzi and served in a coconut. Traditional Goan masalas were used. Goes well with appam and amboli. Super highly recommended ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Prawns Peri Peri Spicy and Tangy prawns in red masala. Prawns could have been a little more fresh but nevertheless a good dish. ⚜️ Amboli A unique tasting Dosa. Highly recommended ✔️✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Dodol Traditional Goan dessert made of Goan dark jaggery and coconut milk. Moderately recommended ✔️✔️✔️ ⚜️ Bebinca Decadent dessert and a treat to the soul. Bebinca is a Goan sweet prepared with coconut juice and jaggery as main ingredients. This is a layered dessert. Super highly recommended ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️More

Most of the spots have their own style of offering , but this one was exceptional. When we decided go to this place , I wasn’t that much exited , but it really adds to satisfaction level once you visit this classic spot . “GOA...PORTUGUESA “ is the place that have some classic Goan dishes . Now this place has basically 3 Cuisines . Maharashtrian , South Indian and this Goan . One of the happening place to dine . It is located at mahim, it is basically famous for sea food dishes . the best part is they don’t use any colour related things and Ajinomoto. The Ambience is Stylish , nice interiors with comfortable seating arrangement. the place looks good , live sports screening also available . Although the service was up to the mark especially mr . Somu has Done good job . THINGS THAT I HAD 1)MELON COOLER - refreshing mocktail having a mixture of cranberry juice with litchi crush . It also has mint leaves , although it tasted flavourful. It wasn’t too sweet , a slice of melon was served with this . 2)CHICKEN BALI BALI - for starters , i took this . It was delicious, tender chicken pieces with gravy . It had a medium spicy taste with 7-8 pieces . 3)PRAWNS RISSOIS - This Place serves non vegetarian dishes on white plate , and vegetarians dishes on green . Prawns rissois was good , but it was a bit dry . It could have been more better . 4)MUTTON XACUTTI - It is a Basically traditional concept .the mutton meat was cooked properly , it was cooked in a coconut based gravy which tasted amazing. It had a medium spicy taste with sufficient quantity . 5)PRAWNS GOAN CURRY - Loved it, cooked in a style of traditional Goan curry . Tasted classic with sufficient quantity. It was cooked in a coconut based yellow curry . 6)DODOL - ending an meal with this , sweetness at the perfect level . Nice combination of almonds , cashew with soft texture . A good Goan dessert to try out On the whole it was classic experience at this place , loved to Food along with cocktail . the Goan dishes were amazing , I would surely recommend this happening place .
