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

Vir's Verdict

4.7 /5

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.

About Gajalee, Vile Parle West, Western Suburbs

Mumbai has to be one of the greatest cities considering gastronomy. The city itself is thriving with all sorts of cultures and their food but nothing, I mean nothing, comes close to the exquisite world of regional cuisine. If it’s the first thing you have to do in the city, get your hands on some traditional Maharashtrian fare. Its everything Mumbai is, colorful and vivacious. If you ask your cab driver or your neighbor where to go for awesome Maharashtrian meal, they will point you towards ‘Gajalee’. Out of all the outlets in Mumbai, opt for the one at Amrapali Shopping Center, Juhu in Vile Parle West. The food is authentic here with a touch of Mangalorean seeping in courtesy to the Mangalorean owners. Locals flock to Gajalee whenever they feel like having fried bombil, their most famous dish.
