“Recent experience was bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Have always loved this place for good food. However, I was devastated and disappointed with my latest visit. The fish was smelling, the curry was almost made of chunks of scrapped coconut and rice was so hard, that it almost slit my throat. While in the past I have enjoyed the fish, it was chicken that saved our day. The next time I am in Pune, i will think 100 times before trying the fish here.

The experience was so bad that I had to apologise to my mother for bringing her to the place.

“Good Local Fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant serves up authentic Maharashtrian seafood. If you go expecting the usual Mangalorean fare you come across in other city restaurants, you will be disappointed. This restaurant has brought local Maharashtrian seafood to the fore and is doing a pretty good job of it. The catch is fresh and that reflects in the taste. From the small plates of starters to the curries all tastes very authentic. The staff are very polite and helpful in guiding customers through some of the tricky terminology on their menu. The service is prompt and the ambience is as local as it gets. On a 1 to 10 rating, I would score this restaurant a 7.

“Missyncronization by Steward & Waiters and Crowded Sittings Elude Excellent Rating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Being her birthday yesterday , My daughter sampada invited us to her closely held party at Nisarg . The small open place in front of the entrance to the restaurant but within the property was dimly lit . The restaurant is a two floors one with a capacity to sit more than 150 guests . It boasts of a well stocked bar . The people working there right from the bell boy to the manager are very well mannered .

The restaurant specializes in sea food ranging from Bombil , Crab , Halwa , Lobster , Pomfret , Rawas , Shimple , Surmai , etc . prepared in Goan , Konkani , Malwani , Tandoor , etc . styles .

We ordered for shallow fried Rawas ultapulta in Malwani style & Surmai chatpata in tandoor style as starters , Solkadhi and Rawas curry in Goan style , rice breads , aamboli , jeera rice , steamed rice , dal tadaka and prawn biryani as main course .

Though Rawas ultapulta was overspiced Surmai was at its best . Rawas curry was mildly spiced , aamboli and rice cake were excellent , rice preparations and dal tadka were really good . Icing on the cake was Prawn biryani which was more than ample , tasty and satiated our desire to order more .

When we exited one security guard showed a big live crab from the crab house to my little Sharlina and encouraged her to fondle the crab .

If everything is so nice then why I am hesitating to give the Excellent rating to this restaurant ?

One reason is as the tables are placed too closely , one really gets forced to hear what a stranger says to her friend . this is irritating . The other reason is there is no coordination in bringing the ordred dishes . We were served rice cakes and aambolis first . After waiting for 10 minutes we have to remind the steward to bring the Rawas curry . Similarly we have to wait endlessly for our coveted Prawn biryani .

This is a nice example of how a reputation can be ruined by not sticking to basic rules of hospitality .
