Helmed by Zorawar Kalra, the founder of Massive Restaurants and Headed in Goa by Aman Anand, Franchise Partner and Producer of Indian Nightlife Convention and Awards, Bo-Tai makes its way to the shores of Goa. It sits beautifully on the Ozran hill, overlooking the Little Vagator beach and it’s the 4th Bo-Tai in the country.

The décor is modern, minimalistic, chic, casual and very inviting. It offers 270-degree views of the Arabian Sea and changes mood with the changing colours of the sky. In the daytime, its cool vibes are perfect for a laid-back lunch while during the golden hour and sunset, the hues are almost magical, and you cannot help but just stare at the beauty it offers. Post sunset, a feeling of dining under the stars, a high energy vibe, international bartenders, elevated seating sections, and upbeat music, Bo-Tai will take your going out experience to the next level.

Coming from the house of Massive Restaurants, the food and cocktails being top-notch is given. Known for its Modern Thai and Grills along with crafted cocktails, Bo-Tai has the full potential of becoming your favourite go-to place for enjoying surreal views, chilled out vibes, good food and amazing drinks.

Bo Tai Food

The menu is indeed an elaborate one and offers a great mix of soups, salads, appetizers, sushi, dimsums, grills and mains. You need more than a visit to experience the delectable offerings, however, here are a few recommendations based on my personal experience.

First and foremost, you must try the Chicken Dimsum, Thai Chilli Oil, there is no skipping this one. It’s one of the best sellers and for all the right reasons. Perfectly juicy, melt in the mouth dimsums with a delicious chicken filling that sits on a bed of Thai chilli oil. The unique purplish colour of these dimsums is one of the highlights and make them as attractive to look at as they are delicious to eat. It’s one of those Instagram worthy dishes for your feed.

Peanut Crumbed Shrimps is another flavoursome dish that you must try. Tender prawns coated with a crunchy peanut crumb served with an interesting dip makes this dish leave a mark on your palate.

Bo Tai Cocktail

Thai Chilli Chicken Shawarma is an interesting take on the regular shawarma with the chicken oozing out Thai flavours. Although it’s part of the appetizers, I would say it’s filling, so make sure you are sharing it with someone or else you may not have enough space left in your tummy for the main course.

For drinks, other than straight drinks, Bo-Tai offers an indulgent menu of cocktails that anyone would love to try. Full Moon Festival, a Thai-Tiki drink of sorts is surely a must try and so is the Bangkok Boulevard that transport you right into the vibrant streets of Bangkok.

For the mains, you have Pizzas, Grills, Thai Curries, and other wholesome dishes to choose from, but I settled for Chicken Thai Curry Green with Sticky Jasmine Rice and trust me there is no better place than Bo-Tai to indulge in this classic and authentic preparation.

Bo Tai Ambience

Although my stomach was full after having all this deliciousness, there is always space for a dessert. So, I tried the Coconut Crème Brule, and it was one of the most amazing desserts I have ever eaten. Although nothing out of the ordinary, the simple flavours of Crème Brule infused with coconut was made this dessert stand out for me.

Overall, Bo-Tai gives you not one but many reasons to visit them again and again. I am heading there again soon, how about you?
