Hard as it is to tell from the humble exterior—and, for that matter, the slightly shabby, none-too-chic interior—Trishna is one of the city’s best seafood restaurants. Owner Ravi Anchan keeps his menu focused on basic, simply spiced fare, taking advantage of Mumbai’s plentiful supply of fresh fish. (The city got its start, after all, as a bayside fishing village.) Offerings include Chinese and some Indian chicken dishes, but those in the know come expressly for the crab in butter, pepper, and garlic sauce and the tandoori jumbo prawns. If you’d like, ask to see a selection of the supersize, still-wriggling lobsters and crabs before you order; Anchan believes in truth in advertising, so waiters happily oblige. Now an institution after 17 years of operation, the restaurant fills nightly, first with expats (international dignitaries, vacationing celebs, and visiting foodies) and then with Mumbaikers, who prefer to dine late. Have the hotel concierge call ahead for a reservation. Dinner, $50. At Sai Baba Marg; 91-22/2270-3213; trishna.co.in.
