We often visit this place with family for quite dinners. Every time we are here we fall in love with the food more and more. The restaurant treats us with vast variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. One can also try Thalis. Food actually goes very close to represent the different regions of Konkan, this in turn is complimented by... More

The Konkan Cafe at the Taj-President Hotel in Mumbai is worth every rupee ! The ambiance takes one to a Southern India eatery that is both relaxed and elegant. The seafood is the main focus here. Definitely try any of the prawn dishes. Flavored with a light coconut milk, the flavors are rich and complex with a medium amount of... More

Konkan Cafe is a real treat for coastal cuisine; and believe me this is not just sea food. There is plenty on the menu for vegetarians. I love the decor, it successfully creates the traditional Southern vibe desirous of the cuisine offered. Meals are served in copper plates and water is stored in copper vessels on each table. We were... More

Chef Ananda Solomon's Konkan Cafe is amazing. The meen pulicahathu and the ramasseri idlis are to die for. The chicken sukka is wonderful. The restaurant's interior is similar to a Kerala tarwad house and very attractive. this is a restaurant one can go to again and again,

There is really nothing more to say except that - EXCEPTIONAL!! The food - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian is par excellence. We had the non-veg thali and I cannot single out any one dish to review or criticise. The vegetarian fare was equally good - especially, the raw mango curry. In comparison, the desserts and cocktails were good, but not... More

The staff are very helpful and the 2 meals we had were very good. However a total bill for 2 courses with beer at over £50 was unexpected in India

Very tasty food and great options. The thali is a welcome change apart from a huge Ala carte. Keep it up!

The Konkan Café:Thoroughly Indian, the name invokes delightful images of full bodied fish curry with rice, garnished with coconut ofcourse! As a swimmer, both fish and rice were part of my staple diet, and the café serves up both in many exquisite forms. Try the rice in all its coastal glory as a dosa, roti or a fluffy appam. Choose...
