Small, crowded tables close together, looks shabby, wonder why the lampshades are rarely cleaned. We were looking for a seafood place in Bandra, surprisingly very few, and someone suggested this little eatery opposite the vegetable and fish market in Pali Hill. Dim lighting, and it was lunch time, and dim lighting makes me suspicious that there is something to hide. What made up for all this was the fish thali. Actually, it started with the starter of fried rawa bombil, delicious. Snail service, wonder why, there seemed to be enough staff, and after the starter it seemed they were hoping we would be happy and ready to wait. The fish thali was worth waiting for. Generous portions of freshly made surmai flish curry, masala clams, rice, roti, fried bombil, a vegetable, authentic, spicy goan style, the cocunut curry was smooth and flavourful, the clams masala was awesome. For Rs 350, worth the gorging. But sadly, the management should spruce it up, like its related restaurant in South Mumbai, opposite the Mumbai University, which has a lovely interior, great service too, and good food. Some suggestions, the naked fried pomfret we ordered was a sad testimony to our fish markets teeming with this speciality, it was tiny, not well cooked. Please expect prices that do not match the decor, we paid three thousand for three thalis, a fish curry rice, a fried pomfret and three beers.

Had been there twice in early 2012. Nice Food and decent ambience. Value for Money. The only flip side was service, which was extermly slow even at non-crowded time. Everything else was good. Recommended

Came here 3 times on a 3 week trip because the food was go good and the prices were so low!

The Goan style prawns in gravy are a must have. Huge prawns in the creamiest Goan gravy you will ever taste. Get some bread to soak it up.

We ate that prawn dish every time but mixed it up with some paneers and chickens dishes as well that were all good. Best part of all is they take credit cards and are very cheap. Dinner for 2-3 was always around 20-30 US bucks -- with alcohol.

Friendly service. Ambiance is chill, indoor and outdoor section -- but certainly nothing fancy.

Have been coming here for years. A good Goan food joint. Food is regularly too spicy so you have to ask them to go slow on the chilli. Price is OK. Minus point: could be cleaner.
