What an unexpected delight!
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.

Located in a non-descript
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.

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

Awesome Malvani Food
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 :-)

Really good Indian food
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.

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.

Great place for dinner!
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!

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.
