It is earthy, open and naturalistic. Mayur Dhond has a restaurant in his own backyard Edward's Yard, nostalgically named after the caretaker who took care of the family. Set amidst nature in the small village of St Andre, one has to look out for the bright yellow signpost on the bye pass road, along with a twisty narrow lane amidst towering coconut palms. The entrance to the colourful shed is like a beacon amongst the foliage of betel palms, papaya trees and even the kathal, which blooms during summer. Enter the pinewood enclosure and you will find tables standing sturdy with tyre rims, and the fish swimming lazily in the tank. The varieties listed will leave you gawking in pleasure. The bar offers an ample variety of straight pouring spirits. The Duck Special is a great way to start. Go Pan Asian with the Wok tossed 'Vietnamese Bassa' and its crusty coat and crunchy spring onions will get your palate on the go. The starters seem to be winning right down to the finishing line but take time out to order the 'Rawa Masala Chicken'. For the veggies, opt for the 'Crispy Bhindi' also known as 'Okra Salt & Pepper'. For dessert, sign off with the 'Devil's Cream' or the gooey 'Chocolate Blob'.
With high recommendation we went to Edward's yard. The food is excellent n reasonable. Best part u can enter the kitchen n see their working. It's huge n hygienic. Loved all the funny quotes written. Away from city's Hussle bussle the ambience is serene.
After several times of planning finally made it here. Lets explore Edward's Yard: Ambiance: As heard from my friends this place is set out of the hustle bustle of the city in a quiet locality of Goa velha. Entrance had a huge parking lot. As we walk in we can see rabbits, eagle and few other mammals also birds. Seating is partial open air with water fall at one corner. It has a huge kitchen, one can have a look in it. Service : our table was serviced by an Goan server so we got a chance to order food cooked in Coconut oil. He was friendly and prompt when requested, he also allowed us to visit the kitchen when asked. Overall good service. Food : Must say Food is tasty and top quality. Drinks :- Blue Virgin Mojito : A perfect package , must try. Fruit Punch: Mix of all fruits : My friend did not like it though, i did not taste. Starters:- Muscles Rawa Fry (Coconut Oil) Squids Batter Fry : Crispy, tasty, much, must try. we liked to very much had to repeat it. Prawns Butter Garlic : Frankly i did not like it , prawns were under cooked. Rawa Masala chicken - Looks similar like fish but its chicken. Must try. Mix Fried Rice : Mix of prawns, chicken & egg. It was nice and moist, lip smacking King fish Masala - This is a gravy tasted good but the fish was in pieces which i would not appreciate. That's it we did not have any desert. Along with the bill we were given Paan chocolates which you must try. Overall amazing food my rating of 5/5 for the same. Pricing: Everything is priced decently but squids batter fry was way to high to the quanitity as compared. Rest all ok. Rates are same as menu
In Kolkata, we have a saying “Biriyani is an emotion, greater than love” and you just cannot serve anything naming it a “Biriyani”. I donot mind experimenting with Biriyani, but at least it should have the texture and concept of this legendary dish, which is missed here in it’s soo called “Mutton Hyderabadi Biriyani” Ambiance: Peaceful and quite popular with Locals. The surrounding is beautifully done with waterfalls and farm like settlement. In fact this is the only restro which I found more popular with locals than tourists, so am sure it serves really good food. But it was just not for us. Service: Prompt and Good Food: We tried Fenny Margherita (absolutely not drinkable. A suggestion: Donot use Blue Curacao amply in any dish. It will ruin anything with it’s over sweetness). Chonuk Fry (Loved it. In fact this is the only Savory dish which was good), Hyderabadi Biriyani (It has nothing similar to any type of Biriyani and I was quite surprised a restro which is known for it’s Biriyani can serve something like this in name of Biriyani. The rice used was wrong. The texture was wrong. The use of meat was wrongly done. It is something with meat and a tangy flavored rice). Kingfish Ambot-tik (Too much sauce in comparison to the quantity of Fish). We ended it with Chocolate sizzling Jalebi (It is a savior. Beautifully done and Absolute love). Suggestion: Donot try the Hyderbadi Biriyani or Fenny Margherita. Try Chonuk Fry and Chocolate sizzling Jalebi. Pocket Pinch: Cheap to Moderate. Rating: 3/5 (2 points off for The Fenny Margherita and The Hyderabadi Biriyani)
Has great sea food at reasonable prices. Good ambience. Service is good. Must visit place if you are in goa with your family.
If you want real fresh locally cooked Goan food, this is the place! The ambiance is amazing and specially when go in the night. We went with a local who knows Goa inside out and he ordered a few dishes for us and one Goan vegetarian curry for folks who do not eat meat. The prawns and King fish were cooked in fresh Coconut oil and coconut juice. Oh my goodness the taste buds just came alive eating all the dishes. We had the local beer and it was great. The walk to the restaurant is almost like walking through a jungle first before you arrive to the actual restaurant. You cannot go wrong here with any dish you order.
Goa is cluttered with small low-key eateries that miss their chances to star on the map but if asked the locals, they are one of the best places to eat in the city. Amongst the palm lined enclaves and old Portuguese villas resides those unassuming charming restaurants that should be a must visit for any foodie. If you follow the local foodie vine, it will take you to those quaint places like ‘Edward’s Yard’, which are known for not only its fabulous regional food but also for an ambience. The restaurant comes highly recommended by the locals and for those who don’t mind a bit simplicity in their ambience, this eatery is absolutely perfect. This open serene restaurant is located at Dando, Goa-Velha on St. Andre Road, Panaji. A bright yellow signpost that leads into a narrow palm-lined lane marks the entrance to the restaurant.
Food is the sole focus of Edward’s Yard. With its natural surroundings lending a true Goan feel, their menu reflects the local flavour by working with likable Chinese/North Indian cuisines. Selection is seafood heavy and one can get their thrill by choosing from their vast listed seafood varieties. Dining at Edward’s Yard is highly reasonable and pocket-friendly. You can enjoy a luxurious Goan feast for very affordable prices here. Back your first course with couple of beers or whatever drink motivates you. After getting that heady buzz, munch on few appetizers such as, crumb fried pomfret, kaju hariyali tikki, rawa fry crabs, duck chilly, malai chicken tikka, prawns masala fry, mix veg spring rolls and butter garlic squid. Also on offer are, fish curry, paneer makhanwala, mutton do pyaza, Balinese curry, chicken cafreal and crabs xec-xec.
A butter garlic pav or naan complements the meal beautifully. Reach a delicious conclusion of sorts with Edward’s Yard selection of decadent desserts. Give your taste buds something to swoon about with, fresh jalebi with rabdi, gulab jamun, devil’s cream, chocolate blob and bebinca, a traditional Goan dessert. The restaurant fills up pretty quickly, call ahead to book a table. Edward’s Yard is named after the caretaker who took care of the family. Set out in the open midst of cluster of palms and papaya trees, the restaurant presents a very lovely and tranquil picture. Get seated in an open casually decorated shed that gives a gorgeous view of the gardens wrapped around the shed. A wonderful place for kids to run around.
