While you may associate the southern part of the city with old architecture, art venues, and exclusive gymkhanas, South Mumbai also has plenty of value-for-money seafood restaurants tucked along its winding lanes. Be prepared to wait in queues, but our pick of the restaurants are definitely worth the wait.
Sandeep is a favorite with the office-going crowd and with college students who queue here for the easy-on-the-wallet lunch. It’s the kind of place that refills your curry continually, where eating is taken seriously and you cannot linger for a minute once you’re done; there are throngs outside, particularly at lunch hour. Try the fish thali and perhaps something else on the side, and don’t leave without trying the signature garlic chutney.
Fountain Plaza is seriously easy on the pocket while still offering great food. Start with a fish-based thali or a fish fry and ask for the specials. Don’t leave without trying the parotta with your meal.
