“Went back for the memories”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Apoorva was my introduction to seafood cuisine when I had started visiting Mumbai in the early nineties. Now I live in Mumbai but staying in the suburbs has made my visits here infrequent.
Was very happy and nostalgic that I could introduce a friend and his wife (who have recently moved into Mumbai) to the famed Mumbai seafood here in Apoorva.
Started with the juicy prawn koliwada (after the sol kadhi of course!). Followed with butter garlic crab - which was average - Trishna beats all others in this department for sure. More fried fish and neer dosa + prawn gassi for main course.
Final take - value for money but average in quality.

“The price range reasonable”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The service was good and the staff was very attentive. We had the garlic squid for starter and it tasted excellent! The price range reasonable.

“Reasonable seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Good seafood place although when I was there they didn't have crabs nor lobster... We ordered then fish curry which was really tasty. The up floor room has a low ceiling which makes the places a little dark.
We were the only foreigners which is a great deal in Mumbai!

“Apoorva Restaurant @ fort, Mumbai”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Economically prized menu. So foodies can march straight to hog on for a nice non-veg treat. Choose the ground sitting area towards entrance for a aroma free dine in. All veg as well non veg options are delicious. Sea food is a great and really very economic. Neer dosa which is made of rice batter is a good option to try with curries instead of roti or naan. Post a good lunch or dinner ensure to have solkadi.

“Memorable for all the wrong reasons”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Average service, food and surroundings. The thing I most remember is the very very strong urine odour as we entered the air conditioned top floor. This will always remain with me. It didn't seem to bother the three other tables of diners, who all appeared to be middle class Indian people. We were the only Westerners there that evening.
