Must try that sometime. BTW the name is actually Anupam's Coastaal Express (yes, 2 a's - must be a numerology thing; right above Shivananda Stores). Usually I have Chicken Ghee Roast, obviously forgetting about calories and cholesterol. A Japanese friend of mine had one and a half portions once, despite water streaming out of his eyes and nostrils. The same outfit runs another Coastal joint where the old Blue Fox was, in Shrungar Complex on MG Road.
Sa-na-di-ge is my favorite to take customers from US and Europe to, and they are always pleasantly surprised with a different Indian flavor and cuisine. They do it just right when requested to go light on chillies. They also have a decent veg selection for vegetarians in the entourage.
Kudla at Ramanashree Hotel (near Woodlands) is another good place. Great crab. Unfortunately their stuff is a bit too rustic - western guests didn't like it so much. But surprisingly with my Japanese guests there is complete silence - barring the customary eating sounds - around the table till the plates are literally licked clean. Crab Lemon Pepper Butter? Hai, hai, hai, hai, arigato, sugakku oishi ne?
Harbor Market on Crescent Road was another good, if a trifle expensive, place to go to for sea food. Alas, no more.
