When I asked my husband to drive to this place and we stopped at the entrance , he wasn’t too pleased as it looked like a place In the middle of nowhere in a small street with no parking.Boy was he in for a surprise.
Well, as it turned out they do have some parking within the restaurant .
This restaurant was a gem of a find all thanks to zomato and all the reviewers who did us a favour by eating here and telling us about it .
The restaurant is extremely romantic looking and has seating indoors and outdoors with a small stream and fish, a garden with fruit trees and a grape vine, white flowy curtains and friendly , warm staff to make your experience complete.
We ordered a Veg Thali ,their signature fish thali for the husband and a burger for my daughter .
This is not your regular thali place firstly .we saw the staff bringing out fresh plantain leaf for the thali and the food is served beautifully .
It’s actually quite heavy and the veg thali was shared between two of us easily.
DH loved the fish thali , he couldn’t stop gushing about it.
We just loved this place and think it’s definitely the kind of place to stop at for a beautiful meal.
Candolim location.. we went here for a late lunch at around 2.45pm.. there was no one else so we had the luxury of choosing any table..the place is right opposite Kingfisher villa now known as Sachin Joshi villa.. the place (Shivers) is much larger compared to the narrow entrance.. parking for 2-3 cars and many bikes is easily possible..coming to the restaurant features..
Ambiance: Amazing.. be it day light or chandelier lights in the evening.. the setting is so good.. they have 2 bridges and fishes are running here and there below them.. water drops at a steady fast pace from the punctured pipes above, creating an illusion of rain sound.. seats are comfortable and table height is just right..
Service: well.. slow.. very slow.. but wait.. just read the food section below..
Food: we ordered Veg Thali (recommended by the server) and Naga style Chicken Thali..
it took around 20-30 minutes for the food to arrive.. we wondered why this much time even though Veg Thali was suggested by them.. thanks to the fishes and good setting of the restaurant, we spent the waiting time looking around..
Finally the food arrived.. Oh My God!
The presentation itself was so mouth watering.. we knew in a second why it took time and how awesome it would taste.. if you see the images in this review.. the food was served on Banana leaf with earthenware.. I somehow took the pics as I was dying to taste the first bite.. all our thoughts of the waiting time vanished with just the look of it..
all items in both Veg and Chicken were very well cooked.. full of taste of the ingredients and not of too much masala and almost Zero oil.. the Naga Chicken Thali was entirely new for me and all the items in it.. it also had a stuffed chilli.. even with the Veg Thali all items were superb.. a gulab jamun in it looked pretty tempting to have at the last..
everything was homely cooked and with Love..
the food was so good.. we would have waited an hour for it..
Suggestion for the restaurant: nothing from our side but we hope they provide similar well cooked and tasty food even when the restaurant has more guests..
Recommended: Definitely.. try it at least once if you are in Calangute/Candolim.. Personally I will surely go back on my next visit to Goa.. may be dinner next time..
PS: they did tell us to write a review on Zomato but I would have anyways..
