Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is one of our Oldest Favorites for Authentic Malvani Seafood and we were back here after a very long time. Nothing much has changed and thankfully the Menu and Food is the same as well. The Ambience is good, they still have an Airconditioned...Section as well as a Nice Washroom and Valet Parking too, which is a Big Plus Point. Many of the Staff are still there and the Service is as Prompt as before. The Food is Excellent too, although the Quantities are a bit less and the Rates have been Considerably Increased now, so it is not Great Value for Money as before. This shows in their Patronage, which is not as much and there is no waiting at all, which is such a change from the Long Waiting one had to endure earlier when they offered Excellent Value for Money. From a Regular Dining Restaurant, it is now a Fine Dine Restaurant, but with the Ambience of a Regular Restaurant. They also still do not have a Bar License and do not even serve Wine or Beer, which, along with Plentiful Other Options now, has also possibly contributed to their drop in Patronage. Thankfully, the Food is still Excellent and this is what makes you want to go there again.More

I have been eating at this restaurant regularly for more than 10 years and it never disappoints ! The butter garlic crab, bombil fry, pomfret and prawns are great. Their solkadi and caramel custard are outstanding as well. Rest assured, I will be back !...The only drawback is the location and parking. Also, they have a small seating area but if you get to eat here, you won't be disappointed.More

Very nice clam masala. Spicy and tangy solkadi. Fair crab soup. Greasy mutton chop masala. The food was too much so had the mutton packed. The fat congealed in the fridge. Probably using vanaspati.

This is my second visit & thought I should give another try after my earlier bad experience. Things have not changed & are still the same - cold food which isnt tasty or mentioned what is in the menu. I will not ever again visit...this place even as a guest .Sad that people who do not know how fish is to be cooked or have not visited other places still visit this restaurant.More

Waiting for the lockdown to open to visit this place once again. Dont have words to express the quality of seafood served by this restaurant. They have many branches in Mumbai and also a couple of them out of India. Authentic food is served. Must...try dishes are Clams, Bombil fry, Fresh catch in coconut gravy and Prawns Biryani. They have got Thali system with fixed items. Vallet parking available.More
