Best place in town for all sea-food lovers!

A must-visit place for all fish and sea-food lovers of Bombay. Their Bombil fry is the best Bombil I have had in this city. One should have it with a little bit of lemon squeezed on top and a side of their special chutney-the combination is absolutely delicious. The next best I would say is the... read more

Gajalee started off as a small quaint restaurant which is non smoking and non alcohol beverage serving restaurant. It haas maintained it high standards over the last 2 decades; infact the food got better with the years. The drawback at Hanuman Road branch ( the oldest of the chain ) is that even if you have pre booked a table... More

On our recent trip to Mumbai,we wanted to enjoy good seafood preperation and we landed up in Gajalee Restaurant, the one in Vile Parle (E) and we feel we took the right decision. We started off with Bombil Fry , which is a variety of Bombay Duck, very skillfully fried with occasional sip of Solkadi, an appetizer. For the main... More

One of the premier sea food restaurants in the suburbs of Mumbai, Gajalee is the obvious choice when it comes to sea food. The menu is very extensive and the catch fresh. We went as a family for lunch on a weekday. We’d ordered crab in green curry, tandoori lobster, prawns in red curry and fried surmai and neer dosa... More

Recently went there for lunch on a sunday with family. Though we ended up there without reservation, they thankfully accommodated 10 of us (we were there around 12:30 PM). We went there mainly for the malvani sea food dishes and as usual they were exceptional. When you go to Gajalee, order for bombil fry and Sol kadhi without even opening... More

Awesome food- especially, Malwani, Konkani and Maharshtrian seas foods. Service is bit slow. The table space falls short if the group is large like us (we are 12 people). Drinks are expensive. Overall its a heaven for non-veg foodie.

I have always seen that at Gajalee you can have a very simple meal which is economical or have their specials which they tempt you from the tray it may cost you a bomb...however its worth the money if you are willing to spend.
