Compared to Izumi, Kofuku and Pali Thai, on the food and overall ambience score – it’s Seefah all the way, writes Tara Bose Kapur
Thai chef Seefah who set up tiny authentic Asian café Blue in 2017 has shifted into a new spacious location on Hill Road and has named it eponymously, Seefah. Her trademark is authentic Thai and Japanese cuisine.
The restaurant is a welcoming good-sized space, think Thai Japanese style with artefacts, wall art, a sushi bar and a large (unutilised) open terrace overlooking the busy Hill Road. The walls are blue with Japanese style flowers painted on.
The menu is extensive with soups, salads, starters, sushi, sashimi, tempura, mains, rice, noodles and dessert. I noticed there was no pork on offer.
A liquor licence is expected soon.
Here’s what we ate:
Soft Shelled Crab Salad
Grilled Buff Skewers
Fried Calamari with Raw Mango Salad – a refreshing combination
Phad Thai Noodles with Prawn
Red Thai Prawn Curry with Jasmine Rice
Tub Tim Grob – my fav Thai dessert (water chestnuts in coconut milk)
As expected, the food was excellent. Chef Seefah herself was attending the diners and helped us choose food which suited my son’s various food allergy-dictated restrictions.
It was obvious that most diners knew her from Blue, like we did. Same menu too!
I’d say this is THE Asian place in Bandra to satiate your Thai and Japanese food cravings.
Comparing – Izumi offers Ramen Bowls not on offer at Seefah, Kofuku has a larger menu of Japanese and Korean items, Pali Thai offers a more sophisticated setting. But on the food and overall ambience score – it’s Seefah all the way!
