I did manage to cover 6 thali places in 6 short days .I strongly recommend a visit to Ritz Classic , not just for their thali but their extensive range of Goan food - all made keeping their clientele - mostly Goan's in mind.Go for their prawn Balchao , soft shell crab and delicious range of rava fried fish.
Balgo - another gem , it's a hole in the wall eatery - you get the thali and maybe a special of the day - that's it . No menu , just freshly made delicious food and the catch of the day . Anurag Mehrotra who pointed me in this direction rates it as the best for him.
My best this trip was Sanil Bar & Restaurant - again not just for the thali but a whole exciting range of fish and shellfish . I ate here twice - loved it that much.
Anand was another good place - it's a tiny and clean joint and comes with a long waiting at times . Kamla Bai was another great thali place and more.
No trip to Goa can be possible without a visit to Florentine for their Chicken Cafreal - the only good thing there in my opinion , and still well worth the visit.
For a change in flavor - head to Gunpowder for the most amazing South Indian cuisine , both vegetarian and non vegetarian - again this place heads my list .
