1. The Konkan Cafe

This fine-dining restaurant at Vivanta by Taj Hotel is a pet project of Chef Ananda Soloman who is known for his culinary genius. He spent months visiting coastal areas in India to find new, authentic recipes for this restaurant.

His finesse for his profession comes through in the food — it’s all slow cooked in earthenware. Freshness and authenticity of flavors take the center stage at this restaurant.  Mangalorean fish curry and Meen Polichattu, and seafood thali are some of the most popular dishes here.

2. Gajalee

Gajalee is a known name for those who love Malvani cuisine. It has multiple branches in Mumbai, both of which exude a warm vibe. Their Bombay Duck, Clam Masala, Tandoori Lobster, Baby Shark Masala,  and Halwa Fry are to die for!

Make sure you don’t miss out on them! But before you head there, just check if your wallet is loaded. Gajalee is slightly on the expensive side of the price spectrum.

3. Highway Gomantak

Highway Gomantak serves home-styled Goan food that draw in a huge crowd from the nearby offices in BKC. Started off by a Goan couple, Highway Gomantak was initially only operating from their backyard.

They put together some age-old family recipes and began operations with a focus only on the authenticity of flavors. Since then, they have gained a lot of popularity and have even started functioning as a full-fledged restaurant. Their prawns fry, chanak fish fry and fish thali have managed to create quite a stir among seafood lovers.

4. Trishna

It’s easy to miss Trishna in the obscure bylanes of Kala Ghoda. Google Maps isn’t particularly helpful, so you’ll have to trust the directions from locals to get there. (Xanax) The cuisine at Trishna is primarily Mangalorean, with only a few dishes from Malvani and Hyderabadi cuisine.

Thanks to its delicious crustaceans and fish varieties, it is an extremely popular spot for tourists from across the world. Lobster Kalimiri and Ravas Hyderabadi are highly recommended there.

But its first outlet near Pherozeshah Mehta Road remains the most popular among foodies in the city. Made using traditional methods of cooking, their dishes stay true to their Mangalorean heritage. Their Prawn Gassi and Tandoori Pomfret are to die for!
