We landed at Masemari yesterday, an impromptu visit to this sea food specialty restaurant.

Jumping right into what we ordered :

-Prawns Koliwada : This was superb! Crisp batter coating, fresh medium sized prawns served with a garlic-coconut chutney. Yummy chutney that complimented the Koliwada so well, we kinda licked off the chutney too

-Surmai Rava Fry : This was simple Surmai coated with Rava and some masalas and crisp fried. This was also served with the same garlic coconut chutney as I mentioned above. The coating was pretty average, I did not find it very flavorful, in fact a little bland. Also, one turn off with the Surmai was that it wasn’t very fresh. Have had much better Surmai Rava fry in general.

Main course:
-Mangalorean Surmai curry: The curry was decent taste wise. However, I was expecting a typical Mangalorean flavour. This wasn’t that authentic flavour, but okaish. It had a distinct coconut flavor, with a bit of spice hit from red chilli. The disappointing part was the fish – it wasn’t as fresh as we expected, and that was quite a let down.

-Wanted to try neer dosa with the fish curry, but that wasn’t on the menu. Instead these guys serve amboli (a rice/multigrain pancake) which we thought of giving a try. Not a good decision as the 2 didn’t go very well together. The amboli had a nasty oily taste to it, that over-powered the delicate fish curry. Ended up ordering plain rice and this was obviously a much better option to go with the curry.

-Oh yes, and we made sure we ordered Sol kadi, that was a good one and went well with the food.

– Ended with a malai kulfi, decent taste wise, but rock solid due to being a bit too frozen

The above was a meal for 2, costed us about 2000 bucks. I do not feel it was worth it. When a restaurant is categorized as sea food speciality, I would expect them to be spot on with the basic fish dishes!

There is a lot of other options in the menu, maybe some others dishes are great. Would love to hear from anyone who visits this joint anytime
