Service, ambience quality sea food

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

Located in a small lane in Fort area of Mumbai, Ankur is good for sea food. Most of it is mangalorean style. The Kori Roti - a mangalorean speciality (chicken dish) is the star dish according to me. In addition, they have several mangalorean dishes that any other restaurant in that area does not provide. Dont go there if you... More

We come here on a semi regular basis and the food is consistently good. It is always very fresh and the seafood is fantastic. The food style is Indian coastal and therefore is flavoursome but light; they also do great neer dosa, which I haven't seen so much in Mumbai. The decor is simple but clean and bright and the...

Ankur serves a variety of coastal south Indian sea food dishes that you do not get in the typical and famous seafood eating places in Mumbai. The Kerala prawns & Pomfret, Kori chicken were simply amazing. For desserts, the baklava is worth a try but many a times it is not available. 2 negatives about the place - small portions... More
