This place is a joyful mom-and-pop establishment that specializes in the cuisine of Goa—otherwise surprisingly hard to find in Lisbon. The spicy veal balchão and ginger-and-cardamom-flavored xacuti are particularly rich examples of Goa's unique mix of Portuguese and Indian influences, but there are also tasty seafood dishes. English-speaking staff will guide you through the menu. Vegetarians take note: you may have been spoiled for choice in Indian restaurants back home, but there are slim pickings here. This place is on an alley off the Tram 28 route from Chiado to Estrela, but take a taxi if you're worried about getting lost.
