The mention of Goa instantly reminds us of strolls on the blissful beaches and lip-smacking seafood. Apart from the mesmerising beaches and the chilled-out vibe of the place, Goan food is famous for its distinctive flavours. In fact even while writing this we are salivating just thinking of the delicious Pork Sorpotel, Chicken Cafreal and our all-time favourite, Butter Garlic Prawns.
We could transport ourselves to Goa, just for an evening of foodgasm. But since that isn’t a feasible option, we’ve found 6 restaurants in Mumbai that will make sure you don’t miss Goa. Thank us later.
1. Lady Baga, Lower Parel
Inspired from the famous Baga beach in Goa, Lady Baga promises a fun, beach vibe right in the middle of the city. Situated in the commercial complex of Kamala Mills this restaurant is designed to feel like a shack. It’s casual and fun with delicious offerings and some great music to set the right mood.
Live In Style Loves: Goan Prawn Curry and Goan Fish Fry are our favourite here.
2. House of Llyod, Juhu
Famous for its on-point Goan food, House of Lloyd can be rightly termed little Goa in Mumbai. The restaurant has quickly gained popularity for not only its cute interiors but also its delicious food and drinks. Plus points for their cartoon wall murals that give us so much feels.
Live In Style Loves: The Sausage Chilli Fry and Seafood Thali are a must-try.
3. Goa Portuguesa, Mahim
Funky paintings, artsy décor and groovy music are just additions to the delicious Goan food served at Goa Portuguesa. Authentic dishes flavoured with Malabar spices and herbs, the food here will surely have you come back for more.

4. Gomantak, Dadar
This modest restaurant offers the most delicious Goan food. A budget-friendly restaurant that’s famous for its seafood, Gomantak is a must-visit to put all those cravings to rest. The interiors of the restaurant are humble so don’t expect anything fancy in terms of service but be assured of great food.
