This Putney institution “celebrated its 25th anniversary with a great party last summer – they must be getting something right!”. Even if “the menu can sometimes be a bit samey”, the “authentic Goan/Indian food” is “still exceptional” and the service “so friendly”. “I suspect Ma Goa will still be going in 20 years’ time”.

“A dependable Putney stalwart now back on top form”, this family-run operation serves “outstanding home cooking, Goan-style” and remains a major hit with locals, some of whom have been coming for 20 or more years. A refurb has seen the dining room modernised and reduced in size with a wine shop added next door.

“Still producing exceptional cooking” after all these years – this “excellent” family-run Goan delights its Putney regulars who consider themselves “lucky to have this as a local”, with food that’s “consistently fresh, aromatic and spicy without being OTT”. Now the family have opened a wine shop next door, they also offer one of “the best affordable wine lists of any local Indian”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
