The closest to paradise from Mumbai - 'Alibag' Charcoal Family Restaurant

Alibag is synonymous with its pristine beaches and delicious Seafood.

We recently visited Alibag and tried out this gem of a Multi Cusine Restaurant. Right from Authentic Malvani food, to Chinese and even Continental cuisine, Charcoal Restaurant covers all taste palettes.

The owners are really friendly and gave us some amazing suggestions!


Here's what we had :


1. Prawns coconut soup: To start off with our meal, we wanted to try something different than the usual Manchow soup. The owner suggested this dish and we must say, it is worth a try. Having a base of coconut milk, the soup contained a generous amount of prawns and this indeed was a welcome change.


2. Chicken Barbeque Skewers: Juicy chunks of chicken marinated in a spicy BBQ sauce along with onions and mixed bell peppers.

We loved their homemade BBQ sauce which was a little spicy unlike the other places we've had BBQ chicken from.


3. Tandoori Pomfret: This one's a treat for all the Seafood lovers. The Pomfret was fresh and grilled to perfection. The tandoori masala on the Pomfret was full of flavour. It is served with a side of salad and green chutney.

Highly recommend this dish!


4. Agri Chicken Masala with Bhakri: Recommended by the owners as a must-try, this dish definitely lived up to our expectations. Chicken masala prepared in a traditional Malvani masala made of dry coconut and spices. This dish was perfectly spiced and the chicken was tender. Pair this with a Bhakri and a side of onions and you're good to go!


5. Caramel Custard: This freshly prepared caramel custard was a perfect end to our meal. The custard was smooth and the caramel sauce was slightly bitter, just how we like it!


Not to forget, the presentation of the dishes were also commendable.

All in all, the Charcoal Restaurant is a must-try when you're at Alibag. You are sure to have a great time!


PS : Though the ambience may not be up to the mark, the food is exceptional. You have our word on that!
