Square Meal Review of Ma Goa ?

A longstanding exponent of rarely found Goan cooking, Ma Goa has become a local favourite with those looking for something more than the curry-house norm. Pass through the slightly theme-led reception to a clean, modern dining room that, were it not for the art on the walls & the aromas from the kitchen, could be serving any cuisine. Well-turned-out waiters bring heavy, carefully annotated menus (with a wine list carefully selected to match the spicy food). Longevity seems to have led to a loss of spark, however. Those smart waiters can be brusque, & dishes such as galina xacutti (chicken with sesame & coconut & green chillies) can seem workaday. While everything’s perfectly adequate, the restaurant appears to lack its former focus. Let’s hope this experience was merely a blip.

    inher30s :: Goan cuisine at Ma Goa, Putney

    When going out for Indian food, northern Indian/ Punjabi cuisine is usually on offer and heading to Ma Goa, I was looking forward to trying something new in the form of Goan cuisine. Goa, famed for it’s hedonistic beaches, is a fusion of Indian and Portuguese, a product of 500 years of Portuguese occupation. Goan cuisine is heavily Portuguese influenced and given its coastal location, includes a hefty dose of seafood. We’re here with a large group to celebrate a birthday and we’re soon settled in a warm cosy room with some piped Bollywood tunes filtering through...
