We found this restaurant by chance but we will definitively come back. Food is great and you can choose between a lot of good and tipical dishes you can share.

Had a recent trip to Putney, ate here and were not disappointed. Service good, food good, would go back.

Fantastic Indian food, as spicy as it should be, but with small variety and some signature Indian dishes missing. The desserts are extremely lacking in size but they make up in taste. I can recommend the one with figs. Also please do mind that the...More

A great find, just down the road! We had been meaning to try Ma Goa out and we weren't disappointed when we finally did. We could've chosen to eat everything off a very appetising menu but we settled for the Kale & Cabbage Pakora to...More

My fiance and I went to Ma Goa on Friday night- as (relative) locals (Twickenham) we had meant to check it out for some time but hadn't got round to it- we are glad we did! The OH is South Indian so was particularly excited...More

This is my local curry house and has recently undergone a stylish and fun refurb. The menu has been simplified but remains very tasty, and there's a superb range of craft beers. Which makes a very welcome change from the usual fizzy lager and compliments...More

As amateur foodies, it is rare for my partner and I to return to restaurants in London as we like to explore new places. MA GOA IS AN EXCEPTION. This restaurant consistently presents high quality, varied and delicious goan food (must have the daal!). Friendly...More

Don't bother queueing for Dishoom - go to Ma Goa instead. Great ambience and decor, fantastic, attentive service and most importantly delicious food with a range of options and flavours. Good selection of craft beers too. This was our third visit and it's getting better...More

At Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed down the generations. Our menu takes inspiration from all regions of India but we have a passion for Goa. Since its opening in 1993, we have won critical acclaim & we take pride in the fact that we are a genuine family-run independant restaurant. Our mission has always been to serve tasty, fresh, unpretentious home-style paired with incredible craft beers from our tap wall. Situated 2 minutes away from Putney British Rail & 5 minutes away from East Putney Tube it makes a perfect venue before a night on the town. We also offer a popular take-away & local delivery service via Deliveroo & UberEats & a party catering service. We look forward to welcoming you to Ma Goa soon.
