“No.1 and with good reason”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 via mobile

Found this place through online reviews and local recommendations and having visited here not once but twice during our stay, I can understand why.

The food is outstanding and the place clean and nice. Though a small place, it is well spaced out over three floors and is devoid of any fish smell.

The service is quick and the place offers amazing Karwar food for both veggies and non-veggies. The fish masala is amazing and the solkadi is really nice. We tried their ghee rice with the fish curry and dal thohi. The fish meal is good and the breadfruit starter is nice.

The owner keeps moving around and is very helpful. He even shared some good and useful tips on Karwar.

I would rate this place over Amrut and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Karwar for some good authentic Karwar food.

“Feeling at home”
Reviewed 18 March 2015

I have traveled widely during my life time but never felt at home for lunch or dinner, as I did while at this restaurant......and why not......This restaurant is run by Chaitanya Basrur, his wife and his brother.
As I learnt later, Chaitanya's wife manages the kitchen with 4 or 5 lady chefs/cooks......Wherever ladies are in charge of cooking....the food is bound to have a homely touch.....!
I am of Konkani origin and never have i experienced kokani food as homely as here......Our visit for two days ended with lunch as well as dinner on both days at this place. And we did not have to repeat any items on all four occasions....!!
Squids, crabs, mussels, shrimps, sardines, makerel,karli,red snappers........!!!!
Each one of them prepared uniquely without using the same combination of spices as is usually done by restaurants serving fish....
The crab sukka is spiced totally differently than mussels sukka. Each dish came as a surprise.......!
The vegetarian food was also a unique experience........!! Jivkadgi phodi (breadfruit pakodas), brinjal pakoda, bhajji aamshne, dali toi, kokam solla kadi, alsande upkari, tomato rasam, dali amti..........we could have gone on and on and on for atleast 7 days.....!!!
Unfortunately my stay was only for two days.....But I have made up mind to stay 5/6 days for next holidays and have all my lunches and dinner at this place.....!
The place is simple and non descript but clean...there is no stench of fish as we see in all restaurants serving fish....So also is the pricing.....which is surprisingly on the lower side.
And to those reviewers here, who have criticised that there is delay in service, I would like to point out to them that food is served fast in the run-of-the-mill restaurants.
In this restaurants, all meals are carefully prepared and served. I should have the patience for some delay.......which can be met with glassfuls of sol kadi......which is what we did....!!
Chaitanya Basrur personally attends to all customers. This is one of those rarest of rare restaurants where the owner treats every customer as a personal guest.

So all fish lovers and konkani food lovers.....must visit this place.
