The original and the best Gajalee is still the one in Vile Parle. It is meant for locals (a broad definition that covers everyone from SachinTendulkar to Lata Mangeshkar to you and me) and no attempt is made to entice foreign tourists. Though the owners, who live above the restaurant, are from Mangalore, they specialise in cooking the sea food of the Maharashtra coast though, inevitably, the Mangalore influences do creep in. That said, the cuisine is authentic, with attention being paid to both fresh seafood which is flown in daily and to freshly ground masalas made to traditional recipes.
It is one of the most famous seafood chains in Mumbai. This was our first and only visit with a friend who lives in Mumbai and swears by it. They bring their prize catch on ice to your table to select for cooking. It was OK, not very exciting.
Gajalee has been my first choice for seafood since a decade. From waiters giving my vegetarian friends a scare by showing them huge live crabs on a plate to getting my farewell lunch when I resigned from my job for the first time, this place holds memories in abundance. Some of the usuals at this place were the masala papad, bombil fry, stuffed bombil and prawns curry. The mutton dum biriyani served here used to be excellent as well. This is a must visit for all seafood lovers.
It was a great dining experience at Gajalee. The Sea Food varieties available are excellent and tasty.
Ambience of the restaurant leaves a lot of room for improvement. While Prawns sukka was good, the fish fry (Pomfret, Bombil) were mediocre and too plain with barely any marination done. Did not match the superb Mangalore taste. However, the price was too shocking for the kind of food served. There are better options elsewhere.
This is the place to go for authentic seafood from konkan area in mumbai. The service is awesome & staff is very friendly.
