Though Goa is a happy place for carnivores, it also takes care of its veg-friendly tourists. So, if meat is strictly no no for you, and you are hunting for some good vegetarian restaurants, then here are 5 of the more recommended ones:
Sharanam Green, Candolim: If you happen to be at Candolim (which is also home to the tempting Candolim Beach), then do make a stopover at Sharanam Green. True to its name, it is completely green and would serve you only veg meals.
The good: The good thing about this place is that it has lots of popular North Indian dishes on its menu.
The bad: And the bad thing is that the cooks tend to add plenty of oil and ghee (so beware the calorie rise)!
Rajdhani, Panjim: Panjim is one of the more favored places to visit in Goa. And its top leafy attraction is Rajdhani where you can dig into pure veg Rajasthani cuisines.
The good: Great location and the traditional thali-style experience
The bad: Can be a bit pricey
Spicy Idli, Arpora Road: A small, hidden and less known eatery, Spicy Idli should satisfy you if you are hankering for South Indian food. Meat-free and glutton-friendly, this restaurant is strongly recommended.
The good: Delicious food, amicable manager
The bad: Only recommended for South Indian food lovers
Anand Sagar, Calangute: Calangute has several restaurants and one of them is Anand Sagar. It serves vegetarian food but the food is not that great. Still, you may check it.
The good: Friendly location, good variety of cuisines
The bad: May disappoint your taste buds
Bhojan, Panjim: Goa tour packages often take tourists to this corner where you can dig into palatable and burp-evoking delicious veg food. It is a must-visit for the Gujarati tourists but non-Gujaratis too would love it.
The good: Comfort factor, quality of food
The bad: Costly, you may need to make advance booking
