They use fresh catch thats the best part of it. The veg galauti kababs are excellent for vegetarians. For those who love sea food, try any of their crab delicacies. Surmai fish is good too. Appams and neer dosa are strictly ok though.

“Over priced & hyped place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Restaurant with good sea food & average ambience but overpriced when compared to other restaurant in vicinity.

Many other restaurants serve excellent sea food with bar.

Apoorva is one nearby which serve excellent sea food & starters along with bar.

Not Recommended.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

you must dine at mahesh lunch home in south mumbai..its near the docks and also very easy to find.
the sea food here is fresh and tasty...and very clean.
you must try the crabs..choose what you want from the live ones and they will be cooked for you..in whatever way you choose, from the various options available.
i always take my fish fried, or with coconut gravy...its YUM!!!!

“Great place and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

The staff is very attention to details and the food is to taste. Just make sure you like spicy foods since the mix of spices can be a little wary after a huge meal. But overall very clean and great place, recommended for all seafood lovers. ( just make sure you don't eat all of the peanuts waiting for your meal)
