Last minute Valentine's Day dinner
pick. The previous reviewers were right that the food is great, a real treat. Not typical oily Indian food, and well spiced. We both got Thali vegetarian (Palak Paneer and Vegetable Kolhapuri) and were pleased and sated. It's not a fancy restaurant but the staff were attentive and at the end they gave us a red heart balloon. We'll be back."

Creative menu choices and great
food, but everything was about a level or a level and a half spicier than what we were expecting, so keep this in mind when you order. Service was very attentive."

There were 6 of us for dinner on
Saturday night. We had no idea what to expect. The food was AMAZING, the service fast and friendly, and the wine was great too. Loved it...can't wait to go again!"

Nothing beats southern coastal
Indian IMO, and Gajalee delivers it spicy...and expensive. I think they've changed their thali, because I remember more than 4ish teensy tiny little dishes on my plate last time I was here...hmm.. We had the lamb and fish thali and no doubt, it was good (spicccyyy wooohoo!) but a little meager for two hungry women (And not American-sized human women, our BMIs are well within normal). I also seem to remember the dishes being a little lighter, rather than so oily (I know, I know, I shouldn't say that about someone's Indian dish, but it's true). And for the price, they could've thrown in more than one chapati. Ah well, I'll be back, but probably as often as if the prices were more reasonable."

We went there with a large group
of family and friends but were very disappointed. The service was awful, one guy took our order but the guy serving us interpreted in his own way so we were given less food than ordered. Later it took a while for this to be corrected. Drink orders came much later during the meal and they drinks ( "sol kadi") were really not done right. Fish dishes were fine but unique compared to what was expected."

Not had a paratha as good as this
since I was in Kerala !! Really enjoyed every dish we chose, will definitely be going back."

If you like spice, this restaurant
has it, and then some!! Even the mild dishes were almost too much for the average eater I. Out group, and the medium level was plenty for our spice-loving eater. Delicious seafood entrees. They didn't arrive at the same time ,however, so the wait for the others meant that one dish got cold. Be sure to get rice to tame the fire. It's included with the order, though we were asked if we wanted it as a side."

The only Indian restaurant where a
Pomfret fry is available, much to the delight of my Bengali husband. The menu has plenty of options and the quality of the food was very good with the right level of spice and flavor. All the dishes came with a very good spicy sauce, raita and raw red onions which is pretty authentic. Now for the downsides - we ordered 2 glasses of wine with the food, one of them had little pieces of the cork floating in the glass. The food was served quickly, but the service was a little too eager after that, about every 5 mins somebody stopped by to ask if we were done with one dish or the other. However the quality of the food was excellent and we will definitely go back."

Was delicious, and not for the
faint of heart. Excellent Indian at really affordable prices."

We were there on a Sunday night at
6 and when we arrived it - kind of empty but then it filled up with families and couples. The vege samosas were very flavorful and light compared to most samosas. The special fried fish was very tasty and surprisingly moist inside. All-in-all a good experience. We tried several other traditional dishes and they were all quite good. The restaurant is very narrow so it can seem a little cramped."

This was a surprise lunch for the
Moms (friend's group) and they just loved it. The food was very authentic and the girls just devoured each and every bite of it. Thank you for such amazing food and I am definitely coming back here for another round :-)"

A good ethnic hole in the wall
that serves very good food at a remarkably low price."

Tastes from South India. Fairly
priced. Good food."

Located in a non-descript
storefront like setting on Valencia St, Gajalee offers a super dining experience. I have enjoyed S. Asian food for some time, but found the South Coastal Indian cuisine at Gajalee to be highly original, totally delicious- at a hard to believe price point. The sea bass I ordered was cooked to perfection and swimming in an innovative spicy sauce. The fish would have cost high $20's to $30 in most up-scale restaurants- $13 here. Limited wine and beer selection- start with cocktails next door at Locanda."

Nice indian place. cheap bottles
of wine. cant go wrong, but plenty of other places like it in the missions."

What an unexpected delight! We
love all kinds of food, and are particularly happy when we find something different. This is primarily but not exclusively seafood, and prepared in a style different than many Indian restaurants. The flavors were excellent, presentation visibly appealing, and the service very attentive. We will definitely return, and would recommend this to anyone who is interested a different region of Indian cuisine."

I really enjoyed the food. The
service was earnest. but rough around the edges. I hope they do well."
