For the Goan in you!

Finding this Goan restaurant was like an oasis in the dessert. Once you know where this joint is in Colaba market, you are in for some amazing Goan meals.Being a Goan and a vindaloo fan, I craved for some Pork vindaloo. The meat well cooked, gravy flavourful and spicy. Jelly and custard for desset was an apt end to my Goan mini meal.

Goan's Delight

Food to Drool on! Just the dishes on the menu make it a must-go-to place for every Goan and any meat lover - Beef Chilly Fry, Steak Onion and Chips, Pork Sorpotel, Chicken Vindaloo, Chicken Curry Rice, and Prawn Pulav, need i say more!? Drool on.... :) Their Breakfast items which are quite western are to die for - Sausage, Bacon, Ham, Salami, and Eggs. The food and the location draw in a lot of white skinned people from different parts of the world, that adds to the ambiance while satisfying your taste buds - A Real Delight!

Goan Sausage goes chilly

If the looks stop you from visiting this place, then you are missing some best food in town. There is nothing that I haven't ordered and tasted here and there is nothing that I would not recommend to anyone..... The best being the Beef Onion Steak, Goan Sausage chilly, Beef Masala, Pork Sorpotel and actually everything.

The food is cooked in limited quantities; so you have to be in time to be able to order what you want to.

In Simplicity Lies Beauty

The place may not look that visually appealing to sit and eat in but do not go here for its ambience. Its more of a mess styled humble Goan restaurant with even more humbler prices. I have had the beef curry, fish fry(mackrel), mince cutlets and fish curry with steamed rice here. Its as close to Goan food as you can get In Bombay. You will be left dumbstruck at the damages. This is a place where time has stood still with respect to every aspect; be it the taste, interiors, cutlery or prices. Hope they maintain this for years to come by.

Good Goan food

A small hole in the wall with some great eating options. Must try the beef steak, and the sausage pulao. They have a great variety of well prepared goan staples. The plates that they serve in are the old style china plates that just add to the experience in a way.

cutlery looked old and dirty.

All my Goan friends love this place as it reminds them of Goa. Think its shutdown now, not sure. I ordered fish curry, which was very cheap and a steak which was again tasty but inexpensive. The quantity was okay for a single person and it was tasty. Though the cutlery looked old and dirty.

Amazing Goan Food

Barring Parsi restaurants that shut at 4:30 pm and a few Irani cafes , i hardly know about any restaurant in Bombay that shuts at 9 pm.

For the kind of food that New Martins serves , 9 pm is ridiculously early. Pork Sausage, Steak are extremely good. Prawns Pulao is spectacular. The Fish Curry Rice is awesome, Chicken Vindaloo is amazingly good too.

They have a custard jelly - something that you rarely get in Bombay. If you are not fussed about decor and ambiance and food is the real deal for you - this is one place that you simply cannot miss out !

For a walk down rustic goa

this place resembles simple roadside eateries in goa.. very rustic with old paint on the walls.. creaking fans.. old wooden tables and benches.. the food is that of a goan home.. the pork sausages taste they way they should and the beef steak is just brilliant (considering the price its unbelievable).. the beef is juicy and is covered with the most awesome caramelized onions.. if you are near colaba market its worth a stop over here

New Martin Dinner

I’ve been on a beef steak hunt for some time now, so when I entered New Martins and saw it on the menu, it had to be ordered. My companion ordered a mutton pulao, after he found out that the dal was unavailable.
Ambience – Old school, small place, open, no A/C, tube lights and pleasantly quiet for a city like Bombay. (It was 8.30 pm on a Monday night). There was an old gentleman eating alone, two young college guys enjoying some meat and another couple just chilling.
Food – YUM. Not the best steak I’ve had, but it is the best steak for that price (Rs. 110). And a very ‘homely’ steak if I may say so. My companion loved the mutton pulao – The plate was wiped clean. Both dishes a good portion for an individual.
Price – Cheap
Revisiting for sure.

Want good home-made Goan food? This is just it...

This is a frequent haunt for my friends and I since it's close to our workplace. Having been here umpteenth times, it still makes our mouth water... the food is much cheaper than any other place that claims to serve authentic Goan fare and also much tastier. This is strictly not for vegetarians though - absolutely no options for them...

Go Goan!

On a certain rainy day,I suddenly got this massive craving for Goan food.Thank God town has a few places that do Goan cuisine.So I marched into New Martin which is located in a small lane somewhere near Radio club in Colaba.While the ambience is very basic,service is really quick and the food is delicious and wholesome.And quite honestly,I love this place for it's no fuss attitude.I gorged on some deliciously tangy Goan sausage chilly fry-Bliss!Another dish they do really well is their Steak with onion and chips-while it's no where close to authentic steak,it's certainly delicious!One can't go to a Goan restaurant and not eat some pork sorpotel-well spiced with the right amount of gravy to dip my pao in.My companion ordered the Fish curry with rice which wasn't as much Goan in terms of flavour as it was Mangalorean.But it was tasty nonetheless.Finished off my meal with some of their custard with jelly-cheap commercial custard and raspberry jelly-soul satisfying for some weird reason!!
Pork Sorpotel- Rs100
Goan sausage chilly fry- Rs 110
Fish curry with rice- Rs 100
Steak with onions and chips- Rs 110.

Don't go for the ambience,but do go there for simple Goan food.And don't whine about Goa having more authentic stuff.Duh.

Amazing Goan food.. Probably Best in Mumbai

If you want to pamper your taste buds for Goan Food, Martin is the only option. Having no relations with the Martin's Corner in Goa (Majorda), a foodie will never go out of the restaurant unsatisfied. Be it their Goan Prawn curry or Mutton Vindaloo or Beef, everything is awesome.
Very simple place, but great food. Full value for money. Only try to go there before 8:00 in the eve as the food will be over by then...

Amazing Goan Sea Food

This place is very deceptive when it comes to looks. You would not imagine the intensity of flavours coming out of that tiny kitchen. Its THE place for goan food. Must try - Fish Fry Bhanda, Fish Curry, Prawns Pulav, Pork Vindaloo.

Best Goan Food in Mumbai

So I had a friend who went to New Martin and for the next few weeks he couldn't stop talking about about this great place he found at Colaba Causeway. After a lot of pestering we finally went there to check it out ourselves. I thot i was in for a disappointment, as more often than not these places are a big let down, point in case is Bade Miyan at Colaba. But to my surprise my experience was more than satisfying.
The chicken roast is a must try and so are the Chilly fry & Vindaloo.
They don't charge you a fortune for it. I wish they served alcohol too :P

The only thing you can complain about is that its a pretty small place and sometimes you'll have to wait for more than half an hr to get a table, but that just tells you volumes about the popularity of the place amongst the locals.

Brilliant!

Been going to Martin's ever since I landed up in Mumbai, and nothing beats the Goan food here. the pork vindaloo is my favourtie, while the prawns and fish curry rice combo is pretty awesome too. Sticking to pork or seafood here is a good idea. Not much around town beats the stake served at martin's, though be warned, it is not a place for the calorie conscious. If you plan to visit, make sure you reach early, and are starving. that alone will do justice to the place! While the prices have increased over the years, (i think the pork vindaloo is now over 80/-) , there is still nothing that beats it in comparison.

Beef steak!Goan sausage chilly!

One of the few places in town that serves authentic Goan fare.Their beef steak was quite good.It was accompanied by a good dose of perfectly caramalized onions.The fish curry and chicken curry taste great.Very light and sooooo flavourful.They even do breakfast.Do check their timings before you go.Many a times I've made it through the doors just around closing time.They are very strict about their timings.As I always look out for great VFM places...this definitely makes the cut.

Small place, small menu but good food

the first time i went to this place, i got lost searching for this place. Its a small caved in area with udipi style seating.
as said by everyone, reach well b4 lunch time or u will have to wait
i dont eat fish in reataurants so this was not an exception but the chicken and pork dishes were awesome
my friends had fish n they say it was good too
especially the CHICKEN FRY was out of this world
day's dessert was APRICOT CUSTARD which was good and something i never had
i wld rate this place 7 on 10 - good food, bad ambience, good service and value for money

Goan Galore

There's nothing better than this place when it comes to Authentic Goan Cuisine. The Mackerel Fish Fry in Resham Masala, the Beef Chilly, the Beef Steak, the Pork Vindalo, etc etc.... we eat about 8 dishes when we go here and the total bill doesnt exceed 550/- The quantity wont disappoint you and the flavors i promise, will tantalize your tatse buds! Don't shy from re-ordering or "excess" ordering... EAT UP!!! Don't fear the bill, it will still be quarter of an average main course meal at any 3 star hotel.

The ambience is not the best, but very hospitable staff and kind service. We eat here every Saturday and will still do so until we find a place we can say is "better than Martins - Colaba" And yes, we've tried Goa Portuguese, also Cafe Goa; nothing beats this place... The queue standing outside this maximum 30 seater restaurant; will speak for the love of the food im trying to express here. Check it out!

A cozy little hole in the wall

Firstly, let me make it clear , that I'm a Goan. So , even though you might think that im being overly biased to Martin's , let me tell you that the Goan food served here is some of the best Goan food that ive had in Mumbai yet. Located just outside Strand Cinema off Colaba causeway, this little restaurant has hardly 5 tables which can seat about 4-6 people each. there are no menu cards , and one has to look at a black-board on the wall where the day’s menu is put up. The beef steak, the goan sausage fry and the goan sorpatel with pao (bread) are a must try. The only disappointing bit about the place is that the stuff gets sold out really quick. We reached Martin's at around 3 pm for lunch and found that the Beef steak and the beef chilly fry were sold out :( . not to be let down by this little setback , we decided to go in for the Goan sausage fry and the sorpatel . The at Rs.70-80 per dish, the quantity is more than enough for a single person. The thing about goan dishes is that they have to be enjoyed along with bread, and that is the secret to how you have to eat it , by dipping the bread into the oily goodness of sorpatel and sausage fry. They also server the traditional bacon / salami/eggs breakfast , but I guess that’s only during the mornings. To top it off , you HAVE TO try the Apricot custard as dessert. At Rs.25 bucks a serving this was the most glorious custard I’ve tasted in a while. I loved it so much that i had two rounds : P .
Just like any other goan restaurant, the place closes by 3:30pm and re-opens at 6:30 pm (we goans are very serious about our siesta time :P ). I had clicked a couple of pictures and will be posting them here soon.
To conclude, New Martin's is a must visit if you want to try out some authentic , reasonably priced , really delicious goan food. Trust me, you wont come out disappointed.

Its Just Plain Simple BAD!

I really don't know how people have given it 5 starts! maybe they have come from the nearby islands off the coast of Mumbai for whom New Martins is heaven.. i read the reviews here and went to checkout the place.. i'm a total cold cuts, bacon n egg person.. i have been to most of the places serving them in Mumbai.. but New Martins was a huge mistake.. the bacon was like rubber fried in diesel.. the salamis were tasteless n mind u the price justifies the quantity.. it looks cheap but if u have really come to EAT u gotta spend atleast 250-400 bucks per person to be full.. i tried the famous goan curries that some of the reviewers praise bout here.. my verdict:its BullShit.... don't go to this place if u wanna eat.. go if u r on diet and get tempted to eat.. just one look at this place and u'll be happy that u r on diet..!

I loved this place. Eventhough it does not have a ambience I still love this place. Ambience counts for naught if the food is not good and believe me its good here. If you are a veggi forget this joint. Plus beef is served here so non-veg's too be careful. This place has the best beef i ever eaten. the sausages are good too. Try it out.

Burrp time!

This small place packs in 20-25 people at a time and keeps the rest waiting outside hungry for their Lunch to be served... by the time u sneak in the chances are that the menu board will have quite a few items striked out of the list. So land there well in advance to have some tasty Goan food.
Ambience: Ok (space restriction). Service: Ok (too busy at peak time), Price: very affordable, Overall: If u like trying out new joints. This place is a must visit. Stay Hungry. burrp!

Goan cuisine, et cetera

Blink-and-you-miss-it big, five tables seating six each and a lunch-hour rush at least triple of that, the manager at ease with his laconic self, with the waiters acting as though words are charged, a chalkboard on the adjacent wall breaking your heart with its crosses rising by the hour and a basin which doesn't let you bend and wash at the same time! This place would easily give an udipi place a run for its money. (and win, on account of its menu if not anything else)
But all that not withstanding, anyone out there appreciating goan cuisine must give this place a try.
The time you visit this place makes a big difference. As mentioned earlier, the chalk crosses on the menu board, announcing the unavailability of that particular item, aren't a welcome sign for any food-lover. So try timing the visit anywhere close to noon or 1900 hrs for a menu befitting your appetite and curiosity.(and also to get a seat!)
The menu explores goan cuisine like none other. It serves all kinds of meat, including pork, bacon, beef along with the usual chicken and mutton and of course, sea food. The main attraction has got to be the 'goan sausages chilly fry', which is pork sausages served in a peculiar sour-yest-spicy viscous gravy. But, this dish comes along with a statutory warning, that its made for those broad-minded fellows who rate their taste-buds highly amongst the senses. This 'pork pickle' begs for patience on your part, and doesn't disappoint those who stick by.
The other delicacies include vindaloo and sorpotel preparations of pork and chicken, without which no Goan cuisine can be announced complete. But I've had better. The chicken roast and chicken fry is something to die for. Even though I haven't tried out the sea food out here (can't get better than me mum's), first hand information from reliable sources claim it to be a hit. Also, its the only place i know which serves that all too famous English breakfast, bacon, pork sausages and perfectly cooked egg, sunny-side-up! That too under 50 bucks!
Speaking of prices, this place scores high in that respect. All the items fall in the range of Rs.35 to Rs.70. I happened to have lunch at this very place today, and four people, proud of their eating prowess, had a filling lunch with two helpings et. al., and the bill came up to Rs.300!
So I positively recommend new martins to people in search of the perfect Goan cuisine, and otherwise.

Worst Food Ever!!!!

I had heard about this place and had high hopes of getting some decent Goan home style food. I went along with a Goan friend at around 6.30pm when they had just opened.

The restaurant is very small and consists of wooden bench-like seating and very basic decor. There was a grumpy man on the desk who grunted when we asked if the full menu was available!!

The menu is written on a blackboard in chalk and at first glance looks ok-prices are around Rs 30-45 mostly. We ordered Pork Sorpatel (Rs 45)and fried Surmai(Rs 35). The food arrived quited quickly and the sorpatel looked an ok sized portion and was served with sliced pao. I didn't like the sorpatel at all and left it to my friend to finish it off!!! The surmai came and consisted of 1 overcooked, very red slice of surmai. It tasted very dry and did not have enough salt in the masala and was definately not worth the price at all. We then ordered Pork Roast (Rs 35 I think!)-this came and consisted of 2 slices of pork which tasted more boiled than roasted, very bland and very tough, could hardly cut it to eat. It came on a plate with a slice of partially boiled potato, a few slices of unwashed carrots and a bit of tomato and a dish full of a yellow oily liquid with a few flies and black hair-hopefully from the pig-in it! It tasted bland and greasy. Pao was also provided but we did not end up eating as the gravy was too foul to eat!

I would never go back to this restaurant or recommend it and have to say it was the worst food that I can ever remember having in a restaurant. I have rated it as a 1 Star as there is not a half Star!!!

New Martin's

Iv been told that you get the best steak in Mumbai at New Martin's though I must say that I beg to differ. On the surface it seems that nothing can go wrong. It appears to be a no nonsence kind of place with its focus on the food. The restaurant is pretty small and has the classic wooden benches which find at most Udipi restaurants. There menu is written on a chalk board and its pretty simple. There aren't a 100 items on the menu to confuse you. Don't make the mistake of looking into the kitchen because its not really that clean looking and you may not want to eat here if you look into it while seated at the last table,.Comming to the food Id say I was dissapointed. While the food wasnt bad or anytihng its certainly not anything worth going out of your way to come and get. While I was expecting a lot with the steak Ill have to say that I was pretty dissapointed. The other dish we ordered was a little better though I forgot what it was. I finished the meal with a custard and jelly which was actually the best part of the meal surprisingly The service like the restaurant is quick and no nonsense. Like most restaurants of this type the waiters know the menu inside out and are ready with suggestions. The best part about this place is its value. I haven't seen prices like Martin's anywhere in Mumbai. Everything here is dirt cheap and you could probably have a 2 course meal for around 50 rupees including a drink.

Heavy on the stomach, light on the pocket.

Authentic Goan Food heavy on the stomach light on the pocket.

The hotels situated right at the begining of the Colaba Market but let that not deter you from enjoying a nice lunch out here. It is one of the no-nonsense type of restaurant where you sit, order, eat, pay and leave... no chit-chat (reasons being its very crowded at lucnh) or fancy decor/sitting here. The crowd is decent too ranging from Firangs to hip-teens to mid-size families and office going crowds.

The food is Authentic Goan Cuisine with likes of Fish-Curry, Fish-n-Chips, Chilly Fry, Steak-n-Onions, Prawn Pulav, Cutlets, etc. with my favs being Chilly Fry & Steak-n-Onions. It is really reasonable with dishes ranging from Rs. 25 to 100.

So if you are looking for a nice Midday Lunch check this place out where you wont regret it if you like Non-Veg that is.
