Was staying super close to it. Happened to walk passed the place a couple of times. Gave the feeling of English summer, simple decor, with a brilliant menu. The roast beef is to die for, beer is cheap and the service is always on its toes. Though good things take time, so do give you order 10-15 min

It's actually called "Tashi's" and it's on the Mapusa Road. Essentially an Indonesian Restaurant specializing in English food ! Frequented by many "ex-pat" locals, it specialises in "...... and chips" (Pies, Fish, Steak, Chops, etc.), but is a lot better than this sounds.

Terrific home made food, nice to be in Goa and enjoy non spicy home cooked food just for a change. The best steak pies, and superb fish n chips. Great entertainment on different nights of the week.....book early you won't be disappointed.
