Big shout out to Reddy for looking after us so well over our two week holiday. Will definitely be back. They all do an amazing job and work so hard to ensure everything is... More

Back again to this wonderful shack, as we have done every year we have been to Goa. The food is excellent, from breakfast time to evening meals.It was good to see old friends again. The lads on the beach make sure your bed or umbrella is right and are happy to help with anything. The waiters are true assets and... More

We gave this place a try based on other reviews...waste of time.....decent place very similar to other shacks but average food and over-priced drinks(110 for a shot of Indian gin)....give me a break....a whole bottle costs 200!...many other better choices!

Of the many beach shacks I visited ,this one was also a good beach shack...with perfect beach beds to admire the Arabian Sea ....I slept off in the calm music of the waves...even though the shack played good playful music !

I visited today with my boyfriend and the meal was by far the nicest we've had yet in Goa. I had the shining star special chicken which was delicious, with the aloo parather. Service was excellent (thank you Reddy) and we then took advantage of the free sun loungers and wifi in the afternoon. Looking forward to a repeat visit.

We spent two days at this shack and were really impressed with the service, Mahesh looked after us from the minute we arrived and was brilliant! The food was of a really good standard and the place was much cleaner than many of the other shacks. Only one very slight problem was one or two of the guys offering massages... More

Sat here and watched the sunset. Had a few drinks and tried a few different vegetarian curries, they were all beautiful with lots of flavour. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Well done guys will be back
