The sunshine state of Goa has seen a wave of fine-dining restaurants in the last couple of years. Traditional beach shacks continue to entice visitors but one of the better reasons to visit this sunshine state is Maai.

The first thing that draws you towards it is the attractive bungalow that houses the restaurant while the food is inspired by the spices from the motherland. It is a perfect example of creating a dream decor in a comfortable cozy old bungalow with its historic heritage and Portuguese inspired design.

Ranbir Nagpal, director and co-founder, said, “Maai is our humble tribute to all the mothers of Goa who have carried this cultural uniqueness of the home-made masala blend stemming from the time the Portuguese were in Goa. Our chefs have done a very in-depth study of these Flavors and tried our best to blend it into the current customer palette and expectations for modern dinners.”

The food and beverage are inspired from the travels and conquests of the Portuguese and the ingredients discovered and carried along with them like the tomatoes, pineapple, cashew nuts and guavas are brought from Brazil to Goa and are subsequently spread around India, chillies and pepper being one of the most important ingredients which became immensely popular for wider Indian cuisine.

Maai meaning motherland is inspired from the artisanal flavours of the motherland and its menu – a delectable mix of the Goan and Portuguese flavours on a plate reflect the same.

Columbus Marquis, director and founder, said, “The concept behind Maai was created specially by the team because of the location we found. The team restored the old villa, from the walls to the antique furniture, and from it reignited the taste of the Portuguese heritage. With the goal of complementing the old Goan Portuguese house, we worked on a cuisine based on Portuguese expeditions around the world. We wish to give visitors a taste of home by stimulating all of their senses with cuisine, drinks, and ambiance.”

The food menu is a delicious mix of small plates and curries each of which celebrate the delicate flavours of Goa and every dish is well thought-out and curated, keeping the heritage in mind, and thereby forming a masterpiece on your plate.
