“Missyncronization by Steward & Waiters and Crowded Sittings Elude Excellent Rating”
Reviewed June 5, 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 .

“Must Try!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I am sad that we didn't visit this place much earlier than May-2013 - having been in Pune for more than few years! For someone who loves coastal cuisine - its a must visit. Set amidst central Pune, the place is much more than you would expect.

Excellent outdoor seating, valet service in the midst of busy traffic :-), staff actually knows what they are serving, non flashy and yet perfect service and goooood food!! We reached quite early for dinner - something you should do if you love food and hate waiting outside. We had Halwa ulta pulta and Crab curry, awesome along with the usual solkadi and rice based breads! Surely planning a second visit soon.

In comparison to Mahesh lunch home, this is leagues ahead! Has to be on-par with Coconut grove!

“Great Maharashtrian sea food.”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

If you want to enjoy some good Maharashtrian sea food, then this is the place to visit. There are varieties of fish prepared in different Maharashtrian cooking styles. I am a regular visitor here and also order home, and they have never let me down. The staff are very friendly and will offer you their recommendations based on your taste and also according to what is fresh. If you are willing to spend then I am sure you will enjoy it, you won't regret it!

“A must try place for seafood lovers”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The staff is very courteous and friendly. Our steward was glad to offer suggestions. It appears a bit overpriced, but the taste made up for it. We had amboli and Goan surmai curry which were superb. The variety of seafood offered is mind-boggling. We are definitely planning on revisiting.
