What a joyous place! The ambiance, food and service all topnotch. We visited the restaurant on a Thursday night and the place was buzzing with the sound of happy diners. Our server for the evening, Joshua does the restaurant proud. He was well informed about the dishes, always around when required yet not hovering over us.
We started with the Lobster Roll which was heavenly with every bite. Really balanced out taste with sweet fresh morsels of lobster, creaminess of avocado and a hint of tanginess. The little bread roll on which this all rested, was the piece de resistance of the entire meal. We next had the Grilled Korean Calamari which was perfectly alright with fresh calamari and bits of sweet corn and bacon interspersed. Unfortunately we were still dreaming of the previous dish!
The main course of Mud Crab in Black Pepper was really finger licking good. We had some steamed and some fried mantou buns as accompaniment to the crab. I cant help but wax eloquent about the fried mantou which was soft, fluffy yet crisp! Just yummy!
To top off the amazing dinner, we treated ourselves to the Bailey's Coffee cheesecake. Bastian serves only cheesecakes for dessert but proves the old adage ' if you must do one thing do it really well'. Lovely creaminess, texture of the crumbs, the coffee, the chocolate all comes together in every bite.
The only advice to the team at the restaurant would be to start offering large crabs and the option of smaller portions of the mud crab in shell. One kilo of crab can be a little overwhelming for smaller tables!

We had the "lobster" which turned out to be overpriced tails of an animal close to the lobster family... drinks were good but overall too expensive

The place in Bandra has a quite nice interior. Brunch menu offers many choices but still too much elaborate food, sauces and butter. Combination of food is interesting, you will find salmon, eggs, cheese...whatever is needed for a good brunch...but one plate will be just enough. I suggest to share with friends and let the curiosity explore the menu

The restaurant has good fish dishes and different from the other fish eateries . However the dishes are expensively priced .We ordered quite a few dishes including 3 starters The Singaporean crab curry was good ,however if you want it deshelled you are charged an additional Rs500/- above the the exorbitant price of Rs 2100/- per Kg with shell.No dish would you say had a wow factor to it ,neither was any dish bad all were good.So if one goes there again ,there is nothing that you would want to order again.One would rather try new dishes on the menu.

This place is a seafood abode. I had lobster, squids, scallops, salted chicken along with variations of bread and salad and a very heavy desert. the experience was great with food and service and we had to tell them to stop bringing the food at one point in time. For the money they charge they ensure that you are well fed. The theme of the restaurant is simple yet so captivating. Great crowd and full attention to each table. Must Must visit!!!!
