Shan is an asset to this place - charismatic and customer-centric - I'll miss having drinks on the beach watching the sunset eating my choice of freshly caught fish (many thanks to the chef). We stayed in one of their huts which was basic, but comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend this place - lively, fun and excellent value for money!

Thanks to Sean and Sam and the team for making our stay in Goa amazing. The curries were the best and we managed to have at least one meal a day there. I do miss that paneer mushroom masala!! Friendly and helpful staff who went out of their was to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after, fabulous food and a sun lounger on the beach all combined to make this a very worth while place to visit!

When we arrived in Palolem we came here first as it was next to our accommodation. We met Sean, who manages the found things. He was very friendly and helpful, and gave good advice on what food to order. Our favorite ended up been the paneer mushroom masala, but in general all the food was amazing, we tried a lot of other places, but always ended up eating one meal a day here at least. We even traveled back to palolem on our last night just so we could eat here again.

Honestly the best food in Goa!

We stayed in a raised bungalow next door. The Found Things had an awesome atmosphere, fabulous food, cold beer and great friendly service. Shaun was great as was all the people who worked there. Fresh seafood was offered every night as well as beautiful Indian food. 10/10 for the Aloo Paratha.

We could have easily given this restaurant a miss, as it never figured in any of the best restaurants list (including tripadvisor's). Since our Roundcube package included breakfast at the Found Things, we got chatting with the staff here, and he insisted we have lunch at his place. Our 1st meal at Drupadi was a disappointment to say the least and hence we decided to give this place a try. And boy, were we surprised!!! The crab was one of the best I have ever had (the crabs weren't big, and he had already told us that, but the preparation and taste was mind blowing). After that we ended up having multiple meals at this restaurant. Grilled seer fish (king mackerel / surmai), red snapper masala fry and masala tiger prawns, everything was just brilliant and fresh (once when we asked what's fresh we got a tray with lobster, tiger prawns, seer fish and red snapper for us to choose from. All caught just about 2-2.5 hours earlier).

Our verdict - very very recommended. We loved the Goan masala fry recipes more than the grilled ones (grilled might seem a bit bland for Indian tastes). Not particularly cheap, though.

Any recommended dish - Crab in Goan masala. But do ask what's fresh. Best to order whatever is fresh.

And yes - it's right on the beach, if you want to have your meal while facing the sea
