Insider Tips

  • This is the place to eat crab in Mumbai. They once brought a dozen live crabs to my table and as the crustaceans scurried around, asked me to select one. I did. The crab was duly assassinated and though the dish they made from it was delicious, I felt a little like gang boss who had ordered a hit!
  • If Gajalee did not invent the 'Fried Bombil' (they say they did), then it certainly popularised this version of the dish which turns up on menus everywhere, now
  • Steer clear of the North Indian but they do manage a moist and succulent 'Tandoori Fish'

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic


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.

L size tandoori crab

One of my favourite seafood restaurant when I visit Mumbai. Must have Bombay duck (🐠). This time we tried tandoori crab instead of the usual garlic and butter. Very yummy indeed. They have very good size crabs too.

Clams Koshimbir - A must try

The last time I visited Gajalee with family was more than a year back. We went for the Sp. Clams Koshimbir, our all time favourite, and it was as good as before. The mandatory masala papad and fresh lime soda were great too. Gajalee has always 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. Come here for a grand seafood treat!

One of our favorites for Konkan fare

Service is usually very friendly. Ambience pleasant though not swanky. It's all about the food which is excellent. Bo bio fry should not be missed,and the clam koshambir is to die for. Ghavne is a must and their coconut chutney can be eaten all on its own. Seafood is specially good here. Crab, prawns, fish are all very fresh.

Nothing much has changed

The dishes on the menu and the serving staff all seem to be the same for years. Prices have increased of course. However, there is no upgrade or improvement of this chain of restaurants. Food quality is decent and prices are reasonable but it is boring to visit this restaurant because you know what to expect

It was a family dinner at GAJALEE and we really enjoyed it. The food was good but the service was amazingly better. Very cordial staffs. I wish the Butter Chicken was not made that sweet...overall, great place.
