Having been a regular visitor since they opened, I find it quite amazing that this place has managed to survive and continues to do well! Maybe it's because of people like me who have realized that while the place has some bad days (bland food, indifferent service), when it is good - it is GOOD!
One of the few relatively upmarket places serving coastal cuisine in Indranagar, one should definitely check it out - especially the karwari dishes. Just be warned - they may be having a bad day :)
Bought Karimeen Polichathu and other Kerala dishes from here last week. The staff was initially hesitant and said Karimeen was over. But they had a discussion and they said one plate is available. At home I was shocked to see that the Karimeen was bad and also there was a stale smell throughout the room. This is very bad from a so called reputed hotel and moreover they charged me 300/- for this stale food. The other dishes were equally bad, the crab roast was just some boiled crab in a green chutney. This too was charged 300/-. Please don't visit this place if you are looking for any good Kerala food worth its price. There are hundreds of other places where you can have excellent Kerala food.
Authentic coastal food
We went there a while back. We were highly surprised at the prices of the items there. It was not what we expected considering the ambiance, which although was good, wasn't noteworthy apart from the rooftop seating. We decided to go for Mangalorean and Konkan food based on the suggestions of the friendly waiter. I don't remember exactly what we ordered, but even though being from Mangalore i found the food exceptional. Very well made and very authentic. Couldn't find any fault in it. The service was also pretty good. In all, had a good time but cleaned my wallet in the process :-).
Good, but not great.
Coastal Junction is a potpourri of different coastal cuisines under a single menu. It's a rooftop restaurant located on the 80 Ft road in Indiranagar. The ambiance of the restaurant is great with nice comfortable seating arrangements and airy interiors.
The staff is courteous and helpful. The menu has a variety of fish cuisines. Unfortunately, for some reason the restaurant was not serving alcohol that day. You are served with a complementary basket of fryums and a glass of rasam. We had ordered fried fish and chicken ghee roast as appetizers. The fish was excellent and crispy. The chicken, though quite good, wasn't spectacular.
The main course consisted of kappa (tapioca), paranthas, egg appams, fish curry, and chicken curry. The kappa, paranthas, and egg appams were well made. The fish in the fish curry didn't taste so fresh - though the curry was quite tasty. The chicken curry was quite good.
All these dishes, plus three buttermilks, cost us around 1300 bucks. It was a good experience, but not as good as I had expected. As far as coastal dishes were concerned, the restaurant didn't quite live up to its name.
Food Poisoning Alert !!!!
On Saturday 7th May, we went to Coastal Junction for lunch. Now, I am the kind of person who can eat absolutely ANYTHING. However, this place has no value for money and whats worse is that I now have food poisoning.
We ordered a Potato Stew with regular Appams, a Spicy Fish Curry with Egg Appams, Bhatkal Mutton Biryani and the most horrible Rava Fried Prawns as starters.
When the Prawns were brought to the table, I was stunned at the frugality of the dish with the prices. That one prawn dish was priced at around Rs. 350 and what was served was 5 prawns. Just 5! As soon as it came to the table, I knew something was wrong. It smelt funny. Nevertheless, knowing that it is rated well by other foodies, an award by the Times and never have eaten a "Rava" prawn dish before, we took the leap.
All through yesterday, I was unusually gassy! At around 3.45 this morning, I woke up covered in sweat with a stabbing pain in my stomach. Loose stomach and terrible pain. I was in the emergency room by 6 on Sunday morning for an injection. I am going to report this place to the Health Department of the BBMP and other relevant authorities.
Not only is this place a rip-off (financially) but it poisons you!
DON'T GO HERE EVER!!!
PS: I have the bill, hospital receipts and doctors report if somebody wishes to challenge my review.
Too many coasts in one place
What happens when you try to cram many coastal cuisines into one joint, you land up with Coastal junction. The sea food is not the freshest. Though they have tried to appease a variety of palettes, they have got it wrong. I had the allepey prawn curry, the consistency was a bit too watery though the texture and flavor was passable. The prawns just seemed to have been dropped in. The appam and Idiyappam were good though they were the cheapest items on the menu. What I did like about the place was the way the order was serviced and also the desserts. I had a good cup of filter coffee after a long time and the tender coconut payasam was truly a delight. But the quality and the taste of the food failed to warrant such a high price tag. A meal for two with normal appetites will work out to around 1200 Rs.
good veg spread as well!
i would have never thought about visiting this place if not for the ozone group coupons that i bought recently. thought any "coastal" place wouldn't have anything much for the veggies. But to my surpirse, they had a pretty good veg spread!
For starters, we ordered gobi fry and a potato dish, and for main course we decided on the vegetable aleppey curry and onion and potato stew to go along with malabar paratha and appam. loved the appam-stew.
overall..good food, good ambience(roof-top) and good service.
Went to this place on a cold Sunday morning for breakfast with my family, we had combo of mutton stew with appam 100 rs /paya curry with idiapm 75 rs /scrambled egg with toast 50 rs/ fresh juices/coffee/tea all of it was just superb. total bill was 550 rs for 5 of us. i think in a clean and neat ambiance of this kind its worth the price. ......
Well, my husband and I went to this restaurant after we purchased a deal on taggle. It entailed us to a menu of Rs 1200/- on anything on the menu. It looked well worth it, and so we gave it a try yesterday.
The ambience was superb, and the tables, and chairs so neat, that I haven't yet found a restaurant as neatly laid out as this. We have been in Bangalore for the past 1 yr, but haven't been able to dine out, because of the absolute lack of good restaurants here.
I ordered a mocktail, Cindrella, but wasn't too pleased with it. It was just a very mild concoction of all juices put together with ice...it was very mild, and not so tasty. However, next came the starter we ordered, Goan fish roast, it was superb...everything was pleasing to the eye, the mild cubes of sear fish cooked and pan fried in delicious masala.
Then we ordered the tawa and malabar paratha, with the Allepey fish curry, it was a tad bit bland, but it was good. We were so full, that we thought twice on ordering dessert, however on seeing the menu, we decided we should try the pal payasam. It was good too...not great, but nice.
On the whole, a wonderful experience. A bit on the pricey side, for 2 people, it came upto Rs 1275/-, but was worth the deal we purchased...
Not at all worth for Price
Heard about this restaurant from many.Felt really disappointed after having the 425+Tax lunch.Was searching for prawn pieces in the so called "Prawn Curry".At least 10% justice should have been given for price charged for the lunch.Was wondering to see the restaurant empty even during the peak noon hours.My friend who had the veg meal was feeling sad for wasting her home made meal.Because in most of the houses the regular lunch itself will have "Dal Curry","Cabbage Thoran ",and "Tomato Curry".For having that no need to visit Coastal Junction.
Wonderful but Lacked my Favorite Mangalore Dish :(
A friend and I decided to catch up over dinner at this restaurant. Wanting to enjoy the fresh air, we made our way to the rooftop restaurant and sat down near the low terrace wall. A spectacular firework display close by claimed our attention for a few minutes and then, we turned our attention to the extensive menus. I decided on a Buttermilk - my usual drink of choice in an Indian restaurant and my friend chose a sweet Lime Soda. For our main course, we chose a Prawn Curry with Coconut Milk, which was listed as non-spicy as, my friend didnt feel like a spicy dish. We also ordered Appams, Neer Dosa and Sannas to eat with the curry. Our drinks arrived quite fast and tasted lovely. We happily sipped them while we chatted and watched another short firework display. When our main courses arrived, we ladled the Prawn Curry onto our plates and started to mop it up with the Neer Dosas of which we had two each. We then ate the Appam which tasted ok and finally the Sannas which were lovely. Having place for dessert, we asked for the desssert menu but sadly found nothing to our liking. We then called for the very reasonable bill, paid it and left. The ambience of the place is great. I took a look at their indoor dining place also and thats even more fantastically done than the roofttop place where we were. The service is flawless. Pleasant, smiling and efficient. The food tasted wonderful and there is a lot of choice available. The sad thing is that my favorite Mangalorean dish wasnt available - Pork Sorpatel. I so love eating this with Sannas. The price is very reasonable considering the quantity we ordered. This is certainly a place I will return to and for the owners if you read it, please do consider having Pork Sorpatel as an option on your menu. You would have in me a regular and loyal customer.
Looking for a mangalorean restaurant in indiranagar, chose this place based on the rating on burrp.... We went there on a friday night but was surprised to find hardly any crowd... Empty restaurants are not a good sign - either the prices are too high or food is not good... both of which seems to be the case here. Bit high prices for such bland food - seemed made totally for a different clientele. Not authentic mangalorean at all. Forget the chilli/ spice, how can salt also be so less?
Ambience was good, hence the 3 stars. Else food was not worth the price.
''Feedback is the breakfast of champions''
Every day there is a new place opening in the city, some make waves among various foodie circles by doing something new and unique. Once in a while, some of these places add a breakfast offering to their menu. Some bring their own take on breakfast, helping to make it something unique and fun while others just do the bare minimum. I have heard some buzz about Coastal Junction for Lunch & evening service and then recently found out that they do Sunday breakfast aswell. I decided to see if they were able to take the success with their Lunch & dinner service and apply it to Breakfast.
At 1st glance
Coastal Junction is a mix of funky new cuisine meets wooden comfort. The interior is warm and comfortable with lots of wood giving it that part rustic, part refined feeling. The initial entrance area looks average (a/c section) , but then you notice a much larger dining section at the (roof top) and you can see how this place can hold 150 people. When we walked in, it was pretty quiet and there were a few groups scattered around so we were fortunate and were able to get a nice table in a perfect spot.
The menu is a brief one pager with various dishes that are not your run of the mill breakfast fare. The dishes in the menu are quite intresting. However, we tried the coin paratha & appams with chicken stew, egg masala & scrambled eggs (typical breakfast for us) Our bill came out to over Rs330 for the two of us, but that is with coffees which did not have free refills.
Our waiter was really nice and passed by and refilled our water often and he was very descriptive with the menu since most of the items were new to us. It was nice to have someone keep tabs on us often.
There are some vegetarian options on the menu that you can safely order. There are a couple meat based dishes but there are other choices which should make any vegetarian satisfied. As for vegans, sadly there is nothing I could find that you could order.
This is a great place to go with a group and try out new unique dishes and share them. A group of 3-5 people is probably optimal since you can only share some dishes so many ways if everyone wants a taste. I suggest you check this place out. There were not too many people there when we were so get there before it starts filling up or you might have to wait in line..
"Authentic" needs some working.
It was not very busy for a saturday night, when I visited this place. I expected this place to have authentic coastal cuisine, but i guess its not yet there.... We went to the rooftop section which looked quite interesting, but sadly it doesnt live up to the ambience, one of things that i found was annoying was the faded plastic(read cheap) table mats which was even stinking. For the price one would be paying here, I would expect the trims/ambience to be pleasing. Coming to the all important food, we had ordered neer dosa, kappa, Karimeen and alleypey prawn curry. Kappa was a treat to the palate. Neer dosa's were supple as they should be full marks here. Karimeen was crunchy and delicious. The prawn curry left something desired. From the bar I had ordered A mojito which was not quite there. My review is limited to the experience i had and I found that they definitely need some work to get where they claim to be.
Fish is Awesome and atmosphere is friendly for all
I love this Seafood shack. I have had all of their deep fried dishes. The fish is always fresh. I have
purchased fish to take home which is equally delish. The dining situation is perfect for a large
group of people who can set themselves up at a long table. There is no rush to eat your food and
go. It's perfect for a long dinner or a quick nibble. It is also casual enough to take your children
without fear of ruining others meals. Besides, I must commend Clifford the barman for his
uncanny skills and info about pubs to visit in the city!! Amazing tips and contacts from his
wealth of experience in the pubbing and music scenario.
Don't bother with the other seafood joints it is no comparison, unless you want to eat someplace
that is rowdy, and dirty, with lousy service and small fish.
A treat to repeat !
Bangalore, the landlocked city, however, this place brings in fresh seafood daily, making it a mecca not only for its night-life but for seafood lovers as well. Among the few seafood restaurants located in the "stay and play" city, here is a Jist of my findings at Coastal Junction.
The sky opened up, the angels descended and started singing praises-and I felt I was reborn. I honestly could not believe how good the food is for a Newly opened restaurant-let us count the stars.
We were told by a friend from the sea food industry that Coastal Junction's has some amazing coastal cuisine with chef's from the 5 star world hence we decided to give it a try. Made a reservation for 10 ppl at 1230 and were seated promptly!! (+one star)
Our server arrived within a few minutes and promptly took our drink orders. Service through out the meal was very attentive.!! (+one star)
Starters ordered from the hot station, Karwari prawns,Squid sukka, Meen pollichathu. Main Course- Pachakari stew, Allepey fish curry,prawn pulimunchi & Goan prawn curry. Accompaniments- Malabar paratha, White rice along with neer dosa. All simply out of the world !!(+1star)
Option to dine either at the conditioned dining area (below) or at the rooftop with fresh air and real time weather !! (+1star)
Sweet table-this was like walking into a bat mitvah but better! Dodhol, Pazham pradaman & Manni for the big kiddies !! (+1star)
if you do the math that's 5 stars!
A great time did we have! The seafood here is phenomenal and was beyond expectation, and my other half confirms the Service was divine. If you are a Sea Food lover you will certainly have what you are looking for to appease and please any discriminating palate.
Pathetic wouldn't describe it
We had these coupons that entitled us to have unlimited rounds of drinks, starters (2), main course & dessert. So it was with a lot of expectations that we headed to this place. On arriving, we were asked if we had any coupons which we duly presented. After 15 minutes during which the coupon was passed on to every hotel staff who was present on the terrace and during which we got weird stares followed by sniggers, a waiter finally came with a menu and to explain to us what we could order (which was not too much as the expensive items were off limits and the only fish choice were seer and kane).
For drinks, we ordered mocktailsmy friend a fruit punch while I settled for a virgin colada. Given that we were the only 2 souls on the trace (which BTW has no fans too, so get ready to get stewed), service was pathetic.
The cocktails were so-so. It was so diluted that after a few minutes you could only see more of froth and more of liquid, no cream at all. We had to wait a minimum of 25 minutes between courses. What was funny was how the waiter would serve and take the plate along with him instead of leaving it on the table. Even when we decided to repeat the same dish, it took them a cool 20 minutes. Most of the time, no one was even around to holler.
We had gone with great expectations for the fish as it was supposed to be a sea food joint, wasnt it? I had ordered seer (grilled) and just one bite and I was ready to throw up. I have not tasted anything that bad. It tasted worse than lake fish and devoid of any flavor. Kane was even worse.
After what seemed like eternity, we finally decided to skip the main course and dessert and just be done with the bill but the waiter was insisted on telling us the main course. I was tempted by the mention of idiyappam and asked him to suggest something that would go with it. He suggested a fish gravy and said he would also get veg stew.
As we settled to wait for another 20 minutes, he got us rasam. I have never tasted such bad rasam either. It was just colored hot water. My idiyappam was okay but the accompaniment was terrible. The stew was equally terrible that after one bite, I thought I had had enough terrible experiences in one place to last for a lifetime. But once again the waiter reminded us of our dessert and insisted on bringing it to us. I could not catch the fancy name of the dessert but it was something that had jaggery (a lot), banana (a bit) and broken wheat/rice. It was dark brown (an unusual color for a payasam) and tasted too sweet and too bad.
The overall damage was Rs 750, for which we could have had a scrumptious sea food fare at any of the fine dining places in the city.
All in all, it felt like we were on a Channel V date with no one to disturb us except that it was bloody hot up there and the waiters seem to snigger more than smile. And the food of course is best left undesired and untouched.
Screamingly Good Food
Another hidden gem! Coastal Junction has to be one of the cutest, coziest, romanticest seafood restaurants I've eaten at and I'm so glad I decided to dine here after a fierce search on Burrp for a Saturday night dinner venue amidst Indiranagar. The waitre who was serving us that night had to be the politest, friendliest, sweetest waitre I've ever come across among all the restaurants I've been to. I don't think I've heard any one say "Thank You" as many times as he did within the three hours we were there. am always left with the feeling that my food is being made by someone who cares. Anyone who knows Coastal Junction can attest its flavors & quantity to its generousness, hard work, taste and spirit. What a lot of folks don't get who visits this place like this one is this: without restaurants like Coastal Junction creating great seafood at great prices, we'd all leave or be left eating 1980's chinese every night. Get real folks and get to know the places you eat at well before you write reviews on Burrp or any where else for that matter.
can't help but reiterate what others have said: this is gem and the best kept secret of the neighborhood. I'm not going to blog and post and blow up this place, but I'll bring a friend and hope they do the same. Cheers
My friends and I decided to dine at The Coastal Junction.We went to the roof top but found it warm up there so we decided to dine on the fourth floor which was air conditioned with simple but tasteful interiors and fine classical music.We found the place cosy and ordered for starters which was quite appetising .We ordered for Xacuti which is very much loved by us Goans and it reminded me of home.I ordered for the Goan desert called Bibinca which was simply awesome. Finally the bill with cocktails and food amounted to Rs 2000/- for three of us. Our visit to The Coastal Junction was a pleasurable experience on the whole.
Bad food, overpriced, Poor Service
Absolute waste of money - First of all, the food taste was pathetic, especially the sea food. They boast of a list of Kerala dishes in the menu - but believe me, the taste has nothing to do with Kerala. Very overpriced dishes with poor taste, and on top of that the waiters were not very attentive - they kept the food at the table and never bothered about serving it even after reminding multiple times.
A definite NO GO place
From the hook to the Plate
Good fish isnt cheap. Cheap fish isnt good, states the frosted glass separating the bar from the entrance to Cameron Mitchells gift to land-locked seafood lovers. This sets diners up for sticker shock, but in truth, Coastal Junction isnt too exorbitant, especially considering the level of quality.Myself and a few friends from the corporate world dined last week , Being told by the news from the food & Times award that they bagged the best Kerala food cuisine' that the seafood here would melt in my mouth. I was a bit skeptical but after just the appetizer ( Kane Bazulle another fish wrapped in leaf ) i was sold!!, it felt as if butter was in my mouth, a burst of flavor with each bite!! The main course was phenomenal!!, licked my fingers after each bite!!!
Coastal Junction on 80 Feet Road gets my vote for a great seafood restaurant. I think I have tried nearly everything on the menu, and I also ordered off the menu.
Not only is the food wonderful, but the service is outstanding and begins the moment I enter. The wait people are always friendly, efficient and accommodating, and the seating is always comfortable whether in the bar or dining area.
My friends and I are older and perhaps pickier, but we can find nothing wrong with this fine seafood restaurant. Even with the price of gas as it is, we will travel from ITPL to get a fine meal here.
Coastal Junction is definitely a Seafood destination restaurant, and we will return time and again.
If you know the taste of Kerala- DONT GO HERE
great hopes, great anticipation, week long dreaming..all of the above happens when someone says there is a new restaurant serving food from kerala have opened. And all of that happened when we 2 foodies heard of this place as well. The food is matched in name and name only to the cuisines of kerala. I understand a Khansama or a Bombay Post charging me higher than usual bcoz of the ambience and service they offer, but not this restaurant thats hot, humid, non-cozy and with service not even matching the Shanti sagar(pun intended). My wife named it perfectly "Coastal Disaster"
Reduce the heat
We went to this place last week, late at night. The place looked very nice, the service was great, time to delivery fast. Now the problems: all the items we ordered were extremely spicy. The mussels had no taste of mussels because there were so much of masala! The byriani served looked very nice in those earthen pots, but again very spicy. The bill came also quite high: Rs 850 per person.
Nice but didn't wow me
Coastal Junction was a bit classier than I expected. It is located on the top floors of a shop that sells baby supplies and household goods- so not exactly the most inviting of entrances. The decor of the restaurant is sophisticated but a little blah. Nothing bad but lacking any sort of standout features. We ate on the rooftop area and enjoyed perusing through the interesting sounding options on the menu. Coastal cuisine is usually one of my favorites but the items we ordered didn't really impress me. We ordered the squid sukka for starters, alleppey fish stew, and prawn pepper curry. The service at the restaurant was very attentive but that is not enough for me to return.
Thank You Costal Junction.
Being my wifes birthday was figuring out a couple of places where I could take about 13 people on my family out to dinner. I was scouting around for a sea food Dinner Buffet around where I work (Indiranagar) Unfortunately there were none other than just one where i have been earlier, and thats when I called Costal Junction to ask them if they could do something for me. After I mentioned my budget they costume made a dinner plan. Speaking for my wife and I the food and their services were extremely impressive, we had a wonderful time. Vinod who took care of our table did a fantastic job, thanks Vinod.
P.S- It is very very rare I get impressed with the services of a restaurant.
Good food, but very higly priced
We have been thinking of trying this place for quite some time, but got the chance last night. Walked, in good ambience, sparse crowd on a weekend night. Half of the menu is Kerala dishes, but almost none of what we intended to order was available. Ended up in having squid and mostly chicken. And the prices were really above the sky. (They charge Rs.60 for a bottle of mineral water which actually costs Rs.25.) The food was tasty and good. Squid was fresh and succulent, laced with right amount of Malabar masala (black pepper) and made just to the correct amount of cooking. Chicken was again good and came with the right taste of kerala chicken fry. But value for money - that's not something served here! Two starters, two portions of paratha and a chicken curry made us less richer by a grand.
I have recently been to CJuntion to host a client lunch meeting and found the taste and ambience being very much liked by my client and he was a very fond lover of sea food. I loved the ambience specially that was not intruding , pleasant atmosphere with lot of light and air.. i am sure to go back to this place though am a eggatarian to relinquish the boiled rice, appam , sanas, stew, etc
Are you kidding me?
Went to the A/C seating section. Cant think of anything to say about the decor or the music or the cheap spiral bound menus where the overpriced dishes looked like a joke. If you're going to charge me like a high end restaurant, then atleast pretend to be one. The karwar prawns were clean and fresh and i have to say the same for all the fish we were served. The staff were courteous too.. But this was a huge disappointment. The neitha kozhi was ok, but nothing great. The husband was really disappointed that we were in a coastal restaurant that DID NOT have a thaali or meals concept. 150 bucks for a bowl of sambar? are you kidding me? The kottayam fish curry was passable but not authentic. And the biggest disappointment would be the karimeen pollichathu.. If you're looking for mallu food, I'd suggest you go to Kairali instead. If you're looking for mangalorean, try Coast 2 Coast. This was absolutely pointless and disappointing. Funny thing is, as your bill comes, they give you a coupon.. 20% off.. for the next time you visit them.. .. Why would anyone do that?
Been here a few times, love the ambiance. This kind of a rooftop restaurant is hard to find in the city!
The food is fantastic! We were a bunch of local south indians, (originally from kerala and mangalore) it was by far the best costal food we've had in Bangalore. The fish/prawn etc... is always fresh! They have a great range of authentic chutneys.
The portions served very pretty large. Each portion for about 3 - 4 people. Its not too expensive per head for a group of 4 and above.
Service is excellent!
For sea food, its the best place to go to! I'd recommend the white pomfret wrapped in banana leaf. The jaggery based deserts are great!
This never tasted real coastal.We ordered some Kerala food which I am very familiar with but the food here tasted one of those usual Bangalore based standard Taste!Dint have authenticity.I cannot completely complain because the Chicken dish I ordered was simply good.Food is priced too high.
Good but expensive
We decided to give this place a visit based on several good reviews we had heard.
The staff at this place is really courteous. We ordered Pomfret wrapped in banana leaf for starters. Kori roti ,Neer Dosa and Kori Gassi for the main course and tender coconut payasam for deserts. The tender cocunut payasam was simply superb ...
Other items were up to the mark nothing to be written about. The bill came upto 1k for 2 ppl which I feel puts this resturant in expensive category...
Service is excellent. Found it to be expensive. All starters n gravies(Non veg) are above Rs.200. To sum it all food is good but expensive.......
An average place
This is another restaurant I tried based on burrp's recommendation. Most of the burrpers have given good ratings for the restaurant, but I did not find anything outstanding in my one visit.
Well the place is easy to locate as it's on indiranagar 80 feet road. Ample parking space is available on street or in bylanes.
The entry to the place is confusing, and did stump us. You need to take a elevator after passing through a shop(?). Based on other burrpers review, we took terrace seating, which was very nice.
The ambiance of the place is good. When I went on a Saturday afternoon, the place was almost empty.
Now my personal rule no. 3 for restaurants clearly states to avoid places which are not crowded on peak days. But I ignored that and proceeded to be seated.
On request restaurant provided a baby seat (a true indicator, among others, of service commitment of any restaurant). We proceeded to order starters.
We order a fried fish, squids and tiger prawns for starters. The menu indicated "spice level" on each entree. Most of the items were spicy. The person taking the order was not very appreciative of the fact that I have ulcers, and didn't want much spicy food.
Well soon the starters arrived. Squids were okay. Fried fish was above average. Tiger prawns (the costliest starter on menu If I remember correctly) were a disaster.
Tiger prawn tasted old, and reheated. The spice level turned me a into a "fire spitting dragon". I complained, and met with puzzled looks from the waiter.
Well onto the main course. I ordered Seer fish curry, Biryani, Neer dosa and appam. Neer dosa and appam were excellent. Biryani was very different and tasted very good. Seer fish curry was average.
I felt the prices are high for dishes as portions served are small. In my opinion the place is not a value for money proposition.
I also feel the management should be a little more open to customizing the level of spice in each dish.
1. For Ambiance, Service - 4 stars
2. Sticking to cuisine - 4 stars
3. Taste, Quality of food - 3 stars
3. Value for money - 2 stars
I would probably not be visiting again, as I prefer "Mangalore Pearl" in Frazer town for the same cuisine.
Best Coastal food I have had !!
Loved the food at coastal junction, the spices were just right and everything tasted fresh . We had fish wrapped in banana leaf and potato roast for starters and both were excellent. For the main course it was neer dosa, appams and red rice with chicken gravy. All these were really good. I have had coastal food in many places before but this is the first place that I felt everything was fresh and the spices were just right.
The restaurant in on 2 levels on the 3rd floor and the terrace. The ambiance is not coastal though , I did not think this was a bad thing.
The service was efficient , the staff are knowledgeable about the dishes and could describe it well for us. I found the prices reasonable too.
Would definitely be going back more often here.
Yummy food in my tummy.
Amazing place, the only thing missing is the sound of the waves ! Titos and mambos does not even compare; from service to the way every dish's taste is a unique experience. Ambiance is perfect for a nice evening with friends and family to catch up and don't miss out on the Desserts. Reserve in advance, couldn't get a table the first time I went there.
A seafood lover's haven!
Coming from a family which hails from Kerala I really didn't find any coastal restaurant that could match up to the taste. I had been to Coastal Junction with a few of my friends who're foodies just like me. All of them found the place to be some kind of a discovery for, we needed a respite from the boring food served elsewhere. The menu, only constituting the cuisine of the Western coast of India, was also intriguing. Finally to end it all, the service and ambience made it a complete experience! Will definitely go to this place atleast once in a month. :)
What a Place.
Amazing place interiors done in a very subtle manner but it still gives you that warm feeling .
Great service . A lot to choose from the menu keeping in mind the the fish is absolutely fresh
Swanky bar perfectly blended cocktails .The authenticity of the way
a dish is prepared and the taste is given more emphasis to.
Over all a perfect fine dining experience which would not put a hole in the pocket.
Best Seafood Place in Town!!!
This was one of the few restaurants where we get fresh seafood, especially made in a pure south indian style (west coast).
we tried chemmeen biryani, malabar paratha, nandu pepper and kane rava fry, these were awesome and mouth watering. Aptly suited after a coupe of beers though.
we also tried the appams (plain and masala), this would require some improvement in my view.
Overall a thumbs up for this place for great seafood and ambience, both in the indoor and rooftop (ideally suited to laze around during dinners)
Good food, for every palate!
We visited this place about a week back, wanted to have a "quick" lunch. We looked at the prices mentioned on the menu, and were in two minds - new restaurant or light wallets!
Well we decided to stay. Lets start with the ambience - plain, boring, and nothing special. But i Loved it!! It is so simple, it is nice. Since we were the only group in the restaurant, I can't comment about how "noisy" the place can get.
The Menu: Great choice! Mostly western coast food (no Andhra or Bengali fish). We had mallus, andhraites, mangalorean, punjabi, gujju (veggie), chinese and a british person in the group, there was something for everyone.
The service was a bit slow, but then again, we were in a hurry to get back to office - so maybe we were slightly impatient.
The food was great, especially the fish kottayam - spicy gravy well prepared fish. We had also ordered other kinds of fish and prawn curry and I must say, they were ALL pretty good. I must compliment their neer dosa.
Also, I hate it when people make strange biryanis out of any meat they feel like. Biryani is supposed to be mutton!! These guys had a "fish biryani", I refused to order my myself, but I did taste the one my friends had ordered.... It wasn't biryani but it was good. Think of it as a good fish pulav :D
The bill wasn't as scary as we thought it would be - Rs. 300 per-head. Ofcourse we were in a group of 12, so it would be higher if you went in a smaller group.
