This place was recommended on Dubai Eye (local talk radio) so we decided to give it a go. It is tricky to fine being round the back of the building. The menu is a mix of Goan food, traditional Indian and Chinese... We took recommendations from the waiter and had piri chicken, lamb chops (excellent) and rosemary chicken really good. The beef vindaloo was not spicy, and all the other dishes was also really good.

However in the middle of service about 6:30, the music went off and the staff appeared to have a team meeting and ignore the customers....Bizarre....

Total bill for 4? 450AED

Defiantly recommended...

We were a family of 4. The service and the food was very nice. The staff were really welcoming. Prices are okay compared to the prices in Dubai. No cabins for families are available, it would be great if such facility is provided.

So we visited the much talked about Grub Shack. We ordered a lot of Goan stuff from potato chops, sorpotel, prawn balchao, chicken cafreal, prawn mango curry, rechead king fish masala etc plus drinks. The potato chops and the sorpotel, prawn balchao & prawn curry was nice. While the Chicken cafreal we got only one good piece and the rest was all bones and gravy it was extremely pungent so also the reachead king fish masala ...i think the servers need to ask the guests if they would like the dish spicy or not. The 2 dishes spoilt the whole dinner experience as everyone at the table was ha and hu with tears due to it being so spicy. The rates are very pricey for Goan food and there was nothing exceptional to the food. The drinks were good. Parking is a nightmare. We had a park one mile far and walk to the restaurant.

the place was recommended by a friend who knew the owners. I'm glad we went, good ambiance and some great food.
Must try's are Crab curry, goan prawn mango curry, pomfret Rechado, and pan rolls (starter). Team it up with their lovely Pao and you have a great meal. Oh and dont forget the duck peri peri - surprisingly good.
Top all this off with the malai kulfi with Falooda !
