Saligao Stories by Anisha Hassan Mendes is an ode to the tradition of long forgotten memories. She has carefully and painstakingly curated this 150-year-old mansion into a pictorial storyline. Nuzzled in the bylanes of the pass-through village of Saligao stands a house filled with stories. As one enters the somnolent balcao with old flooring and artefacts from yesteryears, one is greeted with a sala converted tastefully into a lounge relaxation area with old cane furniture and high ceilings. Sip on a highly recommended 'Spiced Rum Mandarin Mojito' and peer outwards - the seating area is grand with a beautiful grotto for the company. The menu is an ode to Hyderabadi cuisine that steals the show. Lest not forget the Goan dishes that grace the menu and a global cuisine inspired by Siddharth Hegde. Dive straight in with the starter snacks - 'Shahi Raan' is marinated with a hint of coastal spice and slowly cooked on coal. A must-have for a large group. For the herbivore in you, the 'Dahi Ke Kebab' are succulent dumplings of hung curd and cheese mixed with freshly ground masala. The 'Crab Sukkha' is tossed in coconut and homemade masala and finished with avakai chutney for the coastal feel. Sign off with the 'Khubani Ka Meetha' - apricots from Hyderabad stewed and served with fresh cream.
A surprise discovery. Beautiful ambience and mouth watering cuisine. The Hyderabadi menu is really authentic and delicious. Also offers Goan and Continental menus and has wonderful bar.
A gentleman from Hyderabad marries a lady from Goa. The happy result? A daughter with a passion for home cooked food opens a restaurant in her mother’s ancestral Portuguese home in Goa and serves up authentic Hyderabadi cuisine fit for a Nawab. Try the aptly named Hyderabad Stories platter with Kache ghost biryani as the centerpiece, surrounded by bowls of classics like Mirchi ki salan and mutton chutney. Or up the game and go for the Nawabi platter with delectable dishes like Haleem, Nehari and Bhagarey baigan. For a touch of Goa, Anisha Hassan, the talented chef, serves freshly baked Pao. The perfect chaser is a cold, locally brewed Eight Finger Eddie.
Excellent dining experience. Delicious food, nice ambience, superb staffs and hospitality. Must visit place.
Gorgeous Portuguese home, 150 years in the family of the very talented owner/chef Anisha Hassan...superb meal, first and appetizers on the terrace with perfectly chilled pink champagne, then a sumptuous chicken biryani. Friendly and professional stuff
The Hyderabad thali had very good mirchi ka salan and aubergine curry. The double ka meetha was good. However surprisingly the biryani was very hard and probably old! My chicken dish was good but not exceptional. On the whole a bit of a let down.
