“very dissappointed......”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

we visited this restaurant at lower parel with friends for dinner. having been at gajalee, vile parle long back,we were looking forward to having great food but was terribly disappointed by the quality of food. we ordered some fish fries like Bombay duck and surmai, i just couldn't believe my eyes,the fish fries were totally deep fried with layers of rawa and besan and less of the fish. The solkadi was absolutely deep free zed and didn't come closer to anything like it should have been,we asked them to take it back. By this time,i had already lost my appetite. For the main course,we ordered shrimp masala, prawn masala, pomfret curry, mutton biryani. The only saving grace here was the prawn masala. everything else i would rate below average with no trace of salt,spice just bland food. looks like they have converted their cuisine into a more westernized version to suit the foreign clientele.
The dinner really left a very very bitter taste(pun intended) in the mouth. The ambiance was good,but what is ambiance without good tasting food?
No,i am NOT going to recommend it all....

“Quality and Quantity of the food ruined the experience”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I visited here with my parents for dinner. We had 2 curries with rice, roti and a shrimp biryani. The quantities of every dish was small which ruined our experience a bit. I think the staff tried hard to be hospitable, so that part of the experience was good... but the food is what we went there for. There's better places.

“Great Location....Needs lot of Improvement...”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Located in the Heart of Mumbai, where SoBo & Suburban Mumbai Meets....in the Phoenix Mall which is Classy & Huge...

However, the restaurant lacks in a lot of areas like Service Levels, Ambiance, Good Veg options etc. As other Gajalee restaurants in Mumbai, Non-veggies would surely love the food...but limited options for veggies...Staff looks lethargic, un-trained.....Food served was also cold and didnt look classy!

As the place & pricing is perfect..the Hotel Management can focus on service levels and wide choice of menu, this place can be rocking!

“Great Sea food”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

The sea food is good here on any day.There are two branches,which I know,one in vile parle, which is very close from the Mumbai international airport,so if you are stuck at the airport and have 4 to 5 hours,then you can have food here.Another is in down town at lower parel, which can be visited if you are in down town.The dishes are pricey.
