Renowned for its seafood, Beach Wadiya has attracted a popular following for decades, including various celebrities. The location is a tropical dream: cross the train tracks at the seashore and enter a walled enclave. Waiters describe what’s fresh – there’s always crab, prawns and lobster – then enjoy something cold while your fish is cooked. Expect to get messy as you’ll be doing your own shell-cracking and extracting. Book a few days ahead.
