Had kingfish masala with garlic naan whilst sat on the beach watching the waves. I would go as far as to say this was one of the best curries I have ever had... The setting perhaps boosted it also. Lovely friendly staff, not pushy and I wasn't coaxed in. Highly recommend!

A beautiful shack at baga beach near titto's club. Nice place to spend evening and early night after spending whole day at baga beach. Food is bit high rated other wise good place and good service. Avoid front line table as venders will irritate you.

The food in the shack is always cooked fresh... More

At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that Shining Star is nothing special - but the food I had here last night was the best so far. By a good margin. I would have rated it excellent were it not for the deceptive, run-down look of the place - but perhaps that's intentional and part of the "cunning... 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!
