Surprise-Surprise!

Don’t go by the looks; this small, average looking place packs a big taste punch first and another later when you pay the bill!
Operated by Father-Son duo; using homemade spices and freshest possible sea-food… It took me 2 visits to conclude and some incubation time to write about it. I am not going to write much because proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Ambiance-
2-3 tables on the floor where the place is located and some more at the mezzanine (AC). Very average ambiance.

Menu-
This place served authentic Goan and some north Mangalorean cuisine.

Tried-

Mangalorean chicken and Neer Dosa: Tender Neer Dosas served with tender chicken pieces in orange thin spicy curry garnished with fried curry leaves. Authentic North Mangalorean delicacy.

Surmai Pulav: Flavorful long grained rice preparation with small chunks of Surmai.

Pomfret Thali: Neer Dosas served with Prawn curry (took Goan option), decent sized fried Pomfret (option available for with Rava coating and without), Solkadi, Onion slice and lemon. The curry reminded me long forgotten taste of Goa in Pune. Great!

Chocolate Mud pie: Base/case so brittle that it starts disintegrating as you push the spoon in the pie. Loaded with chocolate and garnished with chocolate. Wonderful!

Summary –
Ambiance: 3
Taste: 4.5
Food quality: 4.5
Service: 4
Value for money: 3 (Sorry Ameya!!! Have to be true… I understand your logic of quality = cost but…)
Overall: 4.0

Tips:
Portion sizes are small and if you hog; you may need to order more!!!
If you are not very familiar with cuisine; start discussing about the preparation with either of them while you are ordering. It will help optimize.
