This place is amazing, spaced out and sober ambience. They have great variety of dishes for everyone. Their serving is quite sumptuous and quantity is also good. People go to restaurant for food & service and here both are immaculate. More importantly, their preparations is typical regional home-made food which many sea-food joints miss on. They don’t have any extravaganza,... More

Happy but sad. I am happy to have had an extraordinary meal with genuine sincere service. But sad that I will travel the globe and not find the same dishes. They have a dish here called Bombil Fry. It looks like anyone else's fish fry. But it is a very delicate soft fish that few can master. The coating is... More

While the fish at Gajalee is commendable, it's the lamb curry which takes the bakery. Laced with an eclectic mix of spices, the succulent lamb simply melts in your mouth. The mutton sukka MUST NOT BE IGNORED.

We spend part of the year in Vile Parle (E), within walking distance from Gajalee. This is the flagship of this chain of restaurants which boasts branches in San Francisco and Bangkok amongst others. The food and service is always excellent. We had their bangda (mackerel) which was cooked to perfection. Their mutton dishes are also delectable. Try them next... More

When my host asked what do you want to eat in Mumbai and when I said fish; they decided on Gajalee at Vile Parle. Even after booking a table, we had to wait for 10 minutes as there were at least 25 people waiting. They serve the best sea food in the town. Their Bombil Fry, Prawns Crisp fry, fish... More

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
