Prawns ghee roast is the most tasty. Also the chicken biryani is excellent and so is the fish fry- anjal. The portions are just right for one person, also reasonably priced.

Nice little eatery to taste best varieties of sea food dishes in Mangalore. Try their KingFish ghee rost and prawns fry, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended for sea food lovers. There would be a small waiting time, but it's worth the wait.

5 stars for chicken ghee roast. Okay place . Not expensive. Extremely crowded but you should get a place to sit in 10 -15 mins. Sad that they don't serve roti's and only rice.

Machli is always crowded during lunchtime. It's a first come, first served type of eatery with no reservations. After 1 pm, it is too crowded. Do not expect too many varieties of dishes, they serve limited traditional type of seafoods. Ghee-roast dishes will not disappoint...More
