Quite interesting

My first time at an eclectic Marathi restaurant. Food was good, although portions were a bit small. None of the chicken or fish dishes we ordered were spicy and they were all very well cooked!

I first went to Gajalee on their inaugural night. I have been visiting the restaurant once a week ever since. I would rate this is as one of the best restaurants of the world, if food was the sole criterion. The Bombil Fry - Melt in your mouth signature dish. Its taste has not changed since the first night.

Gajalee, Vile Parle is the flagship restaurant of this chain. Mr. Madhukar Shetty owned a beer joint in the same location which had to be demolished to make way for the current premises, went in for a no liquor / no smoking ( this was well before smoking was banned in public places) coastal food restaurant. The Bombay Duck (Bombil)... More

one must have the sol curry...that is the specialty as per me. we visited with friends and kids. i found the thali a bit too expensive but then the food was indeed tasty. we tasted the fish and chicken thali. the service was a bit iffy and the seating was also uncomfortable. however, overall, worth recommending.

I went there on 23rd June, it was raining cats and dogs, but after reading the numerous great reviews I could not stop myself from going to Gajalee. They did not have Bombay Duck fry (:. It being the most hyped item on the menu by fellow reviewers I was really crestfallen. I then made a mistake which I regret... More

The surmai curry was ok. The kokum was the best.. why do i go back to gajalee occassionally.. because one doesnt have nasty surprises when with guests.. though... More

I love the food, service and ambience. For me the must haves are Bombay Duck fry (with batter coating), absolutely the best! The Surmai Fry is wow! The mutton Liver masala is awesome. When I am very hungry I order the Thali, (but you have to sit out). Wonderful waiters and manager. I never miss an opportunity to be there,... More

I have always known Gajalee for seafood. This was my 1st visit to this outlet in MIDC after a long gap. The last was to the Singapore outlet. Its well maintained and the menu is exhaustive. We were here for a business lunch and ordered all types of thalis alongwith some really good sol kadhi. The result was that I... More
