Fish catch of the day is mentioned in a black board along with the rates. Masala fry , rava fry and tawa fry options available. Prawns tawa fry is yummy and crisp. Kingfish , sardines and a variety available. Service is quick and prompt. A visit to this place is a must to enjoy coastal cuisine

A sumptuous and finger licking sea food meal for just Rs 40.00!!? Out of the world today!? But yes GIRIMANJA'S BHAVATHI is such a restaurant with taste as ultimatum.
Off course I don't know, people unfamiliar with coastal cuisines will like it or not, but I have come across people from all across enjoying food here. The basic thali consists rice,papad,one veg curry,one fish gravy and two other accompaniments for the rice,one kokum saaru and another dalithoy(the famous konkani daal). Order additional fish items at seasonal rates and the end would be a great food experiance. The humble settings of the place adds to the experiance. Try their fish tava fries, taru butai(baby sardines)deep fries, prawn golden fries, fish phanna upkaris( spicy and tangy non cocunut based curry) , you will love them. If you go there with a hungry stomach you may not feel like LEAVE the place but to LIVE there.
Hats Off to the efforts of Shri Kamath(who unfortunately passed away recently) and the spirit of Mrs Kamath and her team for giving us this food paradise.
GOD BLESS THEM.

If anyone is looking for authentic coastal delicacies in karnataka, this is the place to be! The fish & meal is fresh & tasty. Ambiance is very local- actually inside a house. But if you want to rewind or spend some time in a restaurant this is not the place. Here you come with only objective- to have good, fresh, tasty food specially fish. We had tried pomfret & anjal. Both stood up to the expectation. The staffs are friendly. Cost for meal of two- approx Rs.800. Overall, fantastic.

Konkani style food. Modest but clean ambience, need to improve. But everything forgiven for the food taste. Fish gashi, Fish fry are classic. Basic lunch is cheap but add on fish fry and curry are a bit higher price but overall OK for the taste. Thumbs up.

Not very easy to find out as it lies in the old city of Mangalore, you will need the help of a local person if you are travelling alone or simply opt for the Uber taxi service. A must place to visit if you are a seafood lover and enjoy the food in a homely environment. Try the King fish, Anjal, or Bangda fry when you order the fish thali. Food pricing is cheap and taste is extremely good. The sitting arrangement is made in a homely style and place is packed in lunch hours. They also have another facility in a nearby building which serves the same food.
