Ten-Second Takeaway

Quite possibly the most authentic Goan cuisine place in the city, Viva O’ Viva takes you right to the shacks. The food is exceptional, and the staff {especially the manager} actively keen on taking feedback from the customers.

The authentic cuisine and chill vibes

Lowdown On The Ambience

The decor of the restaurant makes us feel like we’re in 50-year old restaurant in Panjim. With Goan music playing in the background and the aroma of the Goan curries all around, the only thing missing was a drive to the beach.

A Slice Of Goa

Their sausage fry—Goan sausages cut in really small pieces and stir fried with some Goan masala and finely chopped vegetables—was out of this world. It was crispy with a hint of some spices, and we’d definitely order this one on our next visit here. The Prawn Balchao, too, was one of the best you could get in Delhi, and totally took us right to the streets of Goa, with just the perfect amount of spices and a unique flavour.

They have a lot of things for the vegetarians also, like the paneer piri-piri, or the paneer chilli fry {you can also try their mix veg vindaloo available in traditional Goan spices like Xacuti and Calbin}.

Talking about the desserts, they had the authentic bibanca and didol to mark the sweet end of the meal. There was also the Goan style Fruit Cream, though you can safely go for their Special Viva O’ Viva dessert platter, too.

Best Time To Visit

The place is only open during lunch and dinner, so plan your visit accordingly.

Anything Else?

They don’t do home deliveries; in case you’re calling for a takeaway, order at least half an hour in advance before you go pick it up. One good thing about the location is that they have ample parking, though if you’re heading there on a Sunday, make sure you reserve a table so you don’t have to wait for long.
