The fish thali is unique and quite filling and has two of my favourites - fried Bombay Duck and Fish Curry. If only they'd also add a Prawn dish, it would be the ultimate fishy thali. There's a chutney on the table, which is a great accompaniment to the Bombil. Other dishes worth trying are the Pomfret variants

Its so good that it defies human nature. This is the seed. This is the originator of all Konkani / Malvani restaurants in Mumbai. Long before the wannabes came around, there was Gajalee. I've been here hundreds of times, but somehow strangely it is equally enjoyable every time. Its like the universal law of diminishing marginal utility does not apply... More

Gajalee is located on Hanuman road, Vile Parle East. It has a valet parking. Now coming to the food. Here the food is not all that cheap but there are certain delicacies that you must try. My personal favorites are: Tisrya Koshimbir with poli Surmai Tawa fry Bombil Fry chicken or mutton Dum Biryani (Must try)

During my recent visit to Mumbai, I got a chance to visit Gajalee in Vile Parle. Simply put I loved everything we ate. It was my first attempt to try the authentic Malawani food. It started with Solkadi and it wasn't like something I had tasted before. It really has a unique taste. Gajalee is known for its reliable quality... More
