Ankur-The Coastal Bistro,established in 1941 dishes out some nice sea food from Mangalore as well as other Coastal regions of India. My husband & I are ever ready for sea food so we decided to dine here the other night. It is located in one of the oldest parts of Mumbai,a quiet by-lane with parking available( which is normally very... More

The non veg food is very good and tasty as well. The kori tori is a must try out here. The cost is slightly on a higher side but it's definitely an option for fine dine. Trishna and this one are on a comparable ground and my preference would be Ankur

We were a group of 15 people and the management gracefully allowed us to occupy the entire upper level. The starters consisted of generous helpings of Chicken Tikka, Squid Masala, Batter Fried Prawns and Tandoori Fish. The mains were Prawn Gassi, Butter Crab Meat (without the shell) and Appams & Neer Dosa. There is only one word to describe the... More

I normally go there for lunch and it is not crowded. It gets crowded in the evenings. The ambiance is good, the service is excellent, and the sea food is great. Various fish and prawns in dry sauce or gravy. The neer dosa are great with the meal. The prices are reasonable.

This is a small local resteraunt that specialises in seafood. The food is very good. The local fish rawas and the spicy prawns are worth eating. Also the lobster in butter garlic sauce.

Love the sea food, try the Kerala prawns and fish thekady, the cocktails are also quite unique. The service is very friendly and if you are vegetarian don't worry the selection is very adequate

Tucked away in the by lanes of Fort, (Previously the heart of the Business District in Mumbai) is a quaint restaurant called Ankur. Its coastal food like the now world famous Trishna and Mahesh Lunch home but what makes it different from the others is that it's more quiet,...... the waiters don't run down your neck and the food is...

Its a good place.. prices arent out of whack.. food and service is predictable and dependable.. located right in the business hub of fort. Just to put it in perspective, we stay an hour away, but still go there at times for dinner... been there a number of times, and it serves good vegetarian fare as well

We were visiting Ankur after a decade and were pleased to find the quality had not changed. We tried the Kerala prawns as starter, prawn gassi, clams, fried fish and neer dosas. Only the pomfret was not up to the mark. As residents in SE Asia, we get used to very fresh fish. Service was helpful. I can't comment on... More

Aromas of fried fish and coconut curry wafted out and welcomed me at Ankur a coastal eatery located in one of the Fort by lanes. Started in 1941 this has been the underdog in popularity whilst enjoying loyal patronage. As a vegetarian it was a tough choice to pick this place for lunch, however the Tamarind Martini created by Gaurish... More
