Missing Home? This 35-Year-Old Eatery Serves Mouth-Watering Tandoori Chicken & Fish Fry

    What Is It?

    Opened in 1983, this eatery, a mix of Punjab and the coastal belt, is something out of a fairytale. While walking along Andheri East, we stumbled upon this joint and were immediately captivated by the name itself – Nagpal Fish Fry. Wondering how a Punjabi joint would handle Malwani food, we decided to check it out and boy were we glad we did!

    Since 1983

    We had a chat with the owner and he mentioned how fast things have changed in the city, especially when it comes to eating joints. He mentioned that they started out as a Punjabi food outlet but then, due to so many older joints shutting down in this area, he decided to expand and serve something he knew would be a big hit {it also helped that he loves Malwani food himself.}

    Chow Down

    The staff is super friendly and is always willing to suggest new options in case you want to experiment. The first time, we had a lot of tandoori chicken {gobsmackingly good} and Rawas fry that was perfect.

    It also serves up Chinese, Mughlai and Thali options. We also tried their chicken Punjabi thali {INR 200} that served some chicken curry, chicken pieces, your type of local bread, rice and a dessert option. Worth the money, we felt.

    We then decided to sample some of their vegetarian options, and we were pretty kicked to know they were as good.

    Don’t miss out on their fish fry varieties, kababs and butter chicken.

    While they don’t serve alcohol, you have lassi and chaas to keep you company and away from the summer heat.

    So, We’re Saying…

    If you’re in Andheri East and want to tempt your taste buds, visit Nagpal Fish Fry and enjoy their specials. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, so take your pick. We felt that this was value for money, so it’s definitely worth a shot.
