The story of this restaurant, coming into existence is very interesting. It begins when Mr. Martin retires in the last years of eighties. Prior to this, it used to be a small shop where nearby boys used to play carom and also took soft drinks. Then Mrs. Martin Pereira started serving Goa’s dishes, Sarapatel, Pork Chilli and Goan sausage bread etc. The drivers started bringing foreign tourists here and it touched the peak of popularity within next couple of years. Mr. Joy Perera is always smiling, in conversation with cheers dot com on its success, Pereira, who is always busy with work, gives great attention to the quality of his restaurant. Although there has been some change in the behaviour of the tourists coming here in the past three to four years, but Pereira does not say anything on this and stand still quietly near the bar of his Martin’s Corner.
