Walk in anytime between 11 am to 11 pm for a feast in this up market restaurant. Rony and Susie Martins bring to the fore mother's recipes from yesteryears past. A research over other mother’s forgotten recipes from different parts of Goa dons the menu. One could tend to drive past it on the bustling streets of Miramar. Set in a small bungalow with an enclosed garden, one enters an air conditioned room with local artifacts reflecting a nostalgic era. The must-tries – the crab xec-xec masala and the sungtachi kodi. The service is casual, perhaps in keeping with the Goan culture, but timely and competent.
Had read about this place, and this time around when we visited, gave it a try. It is conveniently located in Panjim. Overall the decor is fabulous, staff greeting and welcoming. The menu was quite a local taste. Our waitor was very helpful in suggesting dishes for us (we had all Veg menu, which be kind of a bummer for some when it comes to trying Goan menu). Interestingly there are no Indian breads such as roti-naan on menu and have your main dishes and curries with freshly baked bread. Overall worth a try if interested for local Goan fine dining.
We wanted to visit Mums to sample Goan cooking and we werent disappointed. The Goan prawn and fish curries were exquisite and the goan sausage in home baked bread a real surprise. The staff were attentive, informative and very helpful. This restaurant is a must to visit if you are in Panjim
Would suggest all to go n visit the place and eat. All their dishes ate authentic. People around are very cordial..helpful..warm. lots of food options. Well.managed by the owner. Noticed the waiter using hand sanitizer before placing our napkins. Very nice environment. We took mum's original recipe prawn, pork pullao, chiken in cheese(for kid), prawn camarao pandao(fried prawns), chiken xacuti. Pudding. They serve complimentary buns and butter and all main dishws have rice with them. DONT MISS IT!!
Waiter kept trying to make us get the more expensive dishes even though they're all quite expensive. I got a veg curry which wasn't that great and it barely had ANY vegetables in it - about three small cubes of butternut squash, three small cubes of beetroot and five peas.. he also slapped a dessert menu in front of us straight away while my partner was still eating which was pretty rude. It's generally overpriced and an uncomfortable experience.
I went to the restaurant with my father and brother and I wasn’t impressed with the food or service at all. We asked for the best recommendations that didn’t include bones, fish heads or tails and that’s exactly what we got. The curry had bones in it when we were told it hadn’t. The fish barely had the head pulled off and still had the tail on it when we were told it would all be taken off. Our server pushed us to get the most expensive things on the menu which I didn’t appreciate and was extremely pushy in getting us to order a bottle of wine (also the most expensive drink) when I said twice that we didn’t drink wine. The prices weren’t great either as the prawns are priced separately of the dishes which I couldn’t understand. By the end of the meal and felt sick and spent the rest of the evening having an awful tummy ache. I’m quite unsure how this place has managed such a high rating but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
It a motto of ours while travelling, ‘live like the locals do’ and when in Goa the best way to see the city is through its vibrant food. Goan food has its rich history and is greatly influenced by Portuguese culture. When in Goa make it a point to find some small eatery well-known to the locals to truly experience what this charming seaside town is all about. Ask your cabbie or a vendor for recommendations on where to eat and we bet most of them whispering ‘Mum’s Kitchen’ into your ears. This lovely popular eatery is ensconced in the lanes of cultural Panaji. Look out for it in Martins Building on Dayanand Bandodkar Street. The restaurant is open between 11 am to 11 pm. Take along a foodie friend or go for a casual date, the ambience is perfect.
The idea behind Mum’s Kitchen is to give the diners a homely culinary experience. The owner duo, Rony and Susie Martins, brings forth mother’s old recipes lost in time. These recipes are handpicked from different parts of Goa and finds one platform at Mum’s Kitchen. You are in for a gastronomic treat. Enjoy the food with a drink of your choice from their impressive bar menu. For a genuine Goan touch, ask your server for a glass of Feni, Goan’s regional drink. Wade into the menu with, Sopa de camarao, tamoso, beef pepper garlic, batat kalimiri, foddi, bharleli kelli and tisryo dangar. Dig in deeper with an assortment of Goan mains such as, pork vindalho, chicken cafreal, pedrinhache balchao, mankyo amot tik, lepo hooman, moonganchi ghanti, shivodache kodi and Mother’s curry.
Mop up these exceptional Goan curries with a serving of pulao or sannas, which is a steam Goan bread made from toddy & boiled rice. Accentuate your meal with the restaurant’s homemade pickles. The chef makes deliciously tangy pickles of prawn, gherkin, cauliflower and even mackeral. Kids get their own special menu brimming with yummy seafood. Sip on a refreshing English tea with your final sweet course. Crepe Mum, bebinca, sakharbhat, alle belle are some desserts worth trying. Mum’s Kitchen is set in a charming villa enveloped by a dense green foliage. Inside, the room is traditionally designed to infuse the feel of Goa through pictures, basket of coconuts and utensils. Low hung beams in wood offsets pale walls beautifully. For a tad expensive prices, enjoy a classy casual dining in Goa.
Mum’s Kitchen in Panaji is an enigma in itself. From the first moment you clap your eyes on it, tucked in a lovely bungalow encircled by a garden, you start falling in love. The owners Rony and Susie takes you on a culinary joyride of Goan flavours set in a tasteful good-looking ambience. From the huge windows drink in the soothing view of the garden and with a glass of wine or locally brewed feni, sample some of the best regional food available in Goa. It will be a lovely spot to bring a date for a Special Occasion.
