Gajalee- Best Sea food. EVER.

It was for my birthday lunch that me and the family headed to Gajalee at Phoenix Mills, Lower parel. We had a three hour long indulgent meal and emerged all happy and stuffed. Gajalee offers the best of all that a sea food lover can ask for. I have got varied opinions about the quality of food at their other restaurants across the city but I can definitely vouch for this one.

Crispy Bombil fry and Fish Tiranga were ordered as starters. Fish Tiranaga is a dish of three different flavoured kebabs. The fish was fresh and soft and cooked to perfection.

And now for the star dish- Butter Garlic Pepper Prawns. The flavours are out of the world and you must try it to experience it. I couldn't get enough of these prawns.

Also, I tried Basa fish for the first time. Delicious soft pieces of Basa fish cooked in semi dry masala made a delectable dish called Seabass Koshimbir

We ordered Crab Masala and Prawns curry for the main course. The sweet, succulent, delicious crab meat makes you forget all the table manners. We were digging into it unabashedly. Messy is excused for the love of crab meat. The special prawn curry was good though nothing really special about it.

The accompaniments were vade which are deep fried puris and amboli which is a type of rice dosa. A special mention of the delicious and refreshing sol kadi.

The last dish of the main course was the prawns biryani which was just about there.
