“Mangalorean seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

This place has the best surmai masala outside of Mangalore. The only lime soda in India with plenty of lime in it. Very busy allthe time with locals who wait outside for tables to become available - worth the wait.

“Nice place for a good lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

This is a cosy place right in the heart of the Fort area of Mumbai. The food is excellent. Though mainly a sea food joint, the other dishes are also pretty good. The rice is lovely. The service is good and the ambience is ok for this type of place. Go to this place for a leisurely lunch/dinner on holidays and enjoy the food alongwith some drinks. The pricing of the food is reasonable. As for the drinks, prices are ok considering that any sort of alcohol in a restaurant is rather pricey in Mumbai. All in all, worth visiting for an enjoyable lunch or dinner with family and friends.

“Very good, excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

The place is clearly not very fancy, although it is more than alright by Indian metrics. The restaurant seems to be always full, which is a good sign.
When it comes to food, they have a wide range of delicious fish dishes (garlic prawns, bombay duck, thick masala pomfret/surmai...) . We were two and enjoyed it so much we came back on our last night in Bombay. On top, it is very good value for money (dishes around 200 rupees, large beer 160 rupees if I recall correctly).
If you stay in Fort area, it's a must go.

“Good Malvani sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

The seafood is marvelous. The prawns gassi is excellent. Try the fried Bombil (Bombay Duck), just melts in your mouth. A tough fight for Mahesh Lunch Home.
