This restaurant serves a variety of seafood from several types of salt water fish to various shell fish. Preparation is also varied: fried, Indian style or western style.I have tried a large variety of all of the above and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and service fast.

It's been a long time since we last visited this place. Location and seating arrangements have already been described by other advisors so I won't go into that. The food I found to be a lot more expensive and a lot less tasty than it used to be. We tried the chicken stew with neer dosas, tandoori rawas and prawn... More

since we had tried Mahesh and Trishna several times, we decided to try apoorva during this recent visit. It was a mistake. Food was okay not great, but much more expensive than Mahesh. Service was okay. Ambience was not good at all.

This is a popular place with non vegetarians especially for seafood. There is both AC and non AC section, ambience in the latter was ok, like a typical fast food Udipi restaurant actually. Choice for vegetarians is quite limited. Found it to be over hyped and expensive compared to the food experience

Been there for lunch on 21 November 2016. The quality has deteriorated. We had prawn koliwada pomfret curry and tisre (clams) masala. None of the 3 dishes was worth eating especially the pomfret in the curry was spoilt and smelling. The prawns too were the smaller variety and hard like rubber (cold storage). We all Had such a bad stomach... More

Asked for a fish roast with ghee which unfortunately was not available. Surmai Tawa Fry was very disappointing. The texture was rubbery. It was either not fresh or overcooked. The ambiance at least in the non-AC section was nothing to write home about. The benches were quite uncomfortable. Service was courteous and the waiter very helpful in suggesting good dishes....

This is a popular sea food joint in the Fort area of South Bombay. Decent variety in food with speciality being Konkan /Mangalorean dishes. Few decent dishes for vegetarians here. Popular with the office goers and local populace alike

I visited this restaurant for lunch a short while back. We order for a Bombil ( Bombay Duck Fry ) and were expecting a rava batter preparation which is usually the case in most seafood restaurants in Mumbai. However, when the dish came...we realized that it was a deep fried preparation. ..similar to a pakora. When this fact was pointed... More

Even though, reviews post it as Mangalorean cuisine and the menu describes many as such, by far by taste, it is a Konkan Coastal Cuisine. We had crispy fine Budweisers and Sea Food starters which progressed to a Fish Curry - Rice main course. Don't get deceived by the ambiance in the first floor, which gives an old Bar-Restaurant look,... More
