Ma and DeeAt Ma Goa Restaurant, my Mother and her team prepare their favourite dishes using family recipes passed down the generations. Our menu takes inspiration from the beautiful palm fringed region of Goa (where my Ma learnt to cook) but also takes influences from other parts of India.

Since its opening in 1993, we have won critical acclaim from many top critics & we take pride in the fact that we are a genuine family-run restaurant. Our mission has always been to serve tasty, fresh, unpretentious home-style cooking in a warm & friendly setting.

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 & free local delivery service & a party catering service.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ma Goa soon.

“Hands down the best Indian food in the area”

The food in Ma Goa is truly delicious. The food is SO fresh. The flavours so distinct, you can almost pick out the different ingredients. You know instantly you are in the hands of a lady with true culinary passion. Ma Goa clearly knows her dishes inside out, there is real love in every mouthful! 
We ate the Prawn Kodi and their special Lamb dish ... both had such depth to their sauces - my husband and i were literally licking the bowls. The Fenugreek Saag Aloo, was the best i have ever eaten.
The coriander and red onion naan was so fresh and delicious and we had the saffron and cashew rice, which smelt so good and matched in taste
The service was pretty quick, even though the restaurant was completely packed - a great sign for a Wednesday night!
We can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu (all the chicken dishes sounded awesome, but there was only two of us, so it felt a bit piggy to order more .. mistake!) Basically we massively under ordered and could have done a banquet .. which apparently they do on a Sunday - so looking forward to doing that very soon too!

I've had a fair few curriesbin my time and after eating at Ma goa I can happily say that it was the best I've eaten. Perfectly spiced lamb and chicken dishes, nicely cooked rice with crispy fried onion and a very moorish daal. On a busy night the service wss attentive and speedy too. Very impressed. Pretty good value at 24 per head as well

Had a quick bite last night at Ma Goa last night. Hadn't been for a while and had forgotten how good it is. Great food and quiet, efficient and un-fussy service. Great intense flavours showing care and thought. Definitely will not leave it as long next time.

“Always a treat”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 I rarely dine at Ma Goa, usually for special occassions, but each time I go back I am never disappointed.
Authentic food, and a family run business and it shows. Their hearts are in the food and the service.
What would I recommend...Hmmm, thats difficult because everything is so good and has such good flavour.
Give it a go, you will not be disappointed.

Delicious Fresh Food

Authentic Indian food. I usually play it safe and go with a Chicken Tikka Musala at most Indian restaurants, as this wasn't on the menu I branched out. We all ordered different mains to share - every single one was something we had not tried before and was absolutely delicious. Everyone was very impressed - we will definitely be coming back.

Great food

We went to Ma Goa with my parents to celebrate my birthday and we weren't disappointed. The value for London and such a great food was amazing. The ribs for starter and slow cooked lamb for main were the stars of the meal. Also a good wine list! Would highly recommend

“Excellent Indian Food”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed 16 April 2014 NEW via mobileWe spent a few days in Putney as a starting base for sightseeing in London. Ma Goa was just around the corner and based on TripAdvisor always the first choice for an Indian meal. Reservation worked well, we had a good table, service was nice, quick and efficient. Starters and main courses were excellent and plenty. I can especially recommend the Nariyal Gosht, a spicey lamb dish. The kids (1st time Indian meal) had a mild chicken curry and liked it, but loved the mango lasse. Highly recommended. TRIP ADVISOR

You can tell a good curry house simply by its popadoms and chutneys, therefore, Ma Goa will not disappoint when it comes to quality. The chutneys were not the usual "straight out of a jar" that you find in most curry houses. These were clearly made from scratch and were very enjoyable (particularly the peanut chutney). The starters were out of this world. We ordered the sorpotel and papri chaat. Both were presented beautifully and tasted equally as good. The mains were even better. We ordered the Bella lamb kodi and a Nariyal gosht. The waiters were very friendly and not pushy. They even recommended a curry when we described what we liked in a curry. He asked the chef to add more chilli to suit our taste. I cannot wait to visit Ma Goa again. I would recommend this place to anyone!
