is Olive in Bandra still a great place?

by ajaysydney

Hi guys,

going back to Mumbai for a 10 days. Last time I went there I went to a place called Olive in Bandra.

Long story short I loved it, perfect place to kick back with a few friends and cocktails, great service, indoor and outdoor area, easy to chat to a few ppl and make friends, and a nice crowd.

I know so many places chop and change over time..is Olive still alive and a great place?
Any similar recommendations would be great..I recall another place called Zenzi..but couldnt somehow kept going back to it! :)

Yup, both still there, still good. Olive's has a Sunday brunch now with unlimited cocktails, champagne, & wine.

Blue Frog in Lower Parel has live music and gets good reviews (haven't been there though).

Vie in Juhu (overlooking the sea/beach) is nice for drinks. Also has a Sunday buffet.

Hard Rock Cafe also has live music (went with out-of-towners for lunch but didn't much like the food though).

Enjoy! (Pick up a copy of Time Out Mumbai to see what's new and what's going on.)

If you are a foreigner avoid travelling by buses and trains at peak/rush hours.
they are the cheapest mode of transport in the world.
autorickshaws / taxis are also cheap. ask them to produce the tariff card to verify the
bill
they charge.they normally rip off foreigners.
do not drink unpackaged water/ food stuff from street vendors.( you probably do not
have the immunity that we do )
bars / pubs are generally the cooling places for mafia/ underworld/ shady elements ,
so better avoid them.same case with movie theatres.
better take a guided tour organised by your hotels.
emergency services are almost absent . do not expect police/ambulance / fire brigade
to arrive immediately.
people will follow you on the streets, they are curious about foreigners, you can ignore
them.
buy lots of garments , leather goods, handicrafts , jewellery . they are very cheap in
Mumbai
Restaurants in Mumbai do not serve beef and pork as Hindus do not eat cow and
muslims dont eat pork.
chicken and lamb/goat as well as fish would be available in plenty.
Hindi, Marathi are the commonly spoken langauages. people from all over India live in
Mumbai so other languages like gujrati, tamil, bengali , telugu, kannada are also
spoken by these communities.
All educated people also speak english though pronounciations may be very
different.write down things if people dont understand what you say.

some good restuarants:

Viva paschim -- excellent sea food
goa portugesa--excellent sea food
copper chimney

by tarush

Visit the Elephanta caves which are just off the coast of Bombay. There are boats leaving every half hour from the Gateway of India. Which brings us to the latter. The Gateway of India was built to welcome the King of England when the British ruled India. Details are inscribed in the stone.

News from home: CELEBRATE BANDRA

by Escadora7

(Here's an email we received from Bandra, Bombay)

Hey! there,

It's parade and festival time in the Queen of Suburbs, BANDRA!! We're hving the 3rd edition of the 'Celebrate Bandra' festival which began on Sat. 17th Nov (2007). and will carry on for 16 days with cultural programmes EVERYDAY on all the 3 promenades i.e. Carter Road, Bandstand, Bandra Reclamation and the Taj Land's End ampitheatre. Stilt walkers, fire-eaters, dancers, cyclists, cheerleaders, singers, koli dancers, NGOs, Marching bands, (including 'tapori' bands!) Giant floats wound their way frm St. Andrews College to Carter Rd where the parade ended. The streets were closed to traffic and taken over by people who mingled together from all religions – caste and class no bar!! Simply unimaginable!! The dance performance by the drag queens of Bandra was saucy and hilarious (without the clapping and hai, hai!!)

How I wish u guys were here! The jazz and the blues, magic shows, theatre, food festivals, cultural dances and events etc. etc. – u would have loved the desi, ethnic flavour of it all. Despite the crowds, no pushing, jostling, shooting, guns, lechers. Everyone comfortably seated on chairs or on the promenades just having a good time. For 16 days nobody will think about garbage, slums etc. on the gaily decorated streets of Bandra.

Yes – Indians are one of the happiest people in the world. The size of the pocket may be important – but not as important as the size of our hearts!! And Bandra is all heart!

Log on to the website www.celebratebandra.net for more information; Check when the next festival is due so u can plan yr future visits accordingly.

Mumbadevi Temple

by nehnis

The trip to Mumbai is incomplete without paying a visit to Mumbadevi temple, the goddess of the city. Although the Mumbadevi Temple is not as striking as others are in the city, its resident deity, Mumbadevi, is the city's patron Goddess. The structure is about six centuries old, believed to be the handiwork of Mumbaraka, a sadistic giant who frequently plundered the city at the time. Terrorized by these unwelcome visits, the locals pleaded with Lord Brahma, Creator of all things to protect them. Brahma then "pulled out of his own body", an eight armed goddess who vanquished the brute. Predictably brought to his knees, Mumbaraka implored Her Holiness to take his name and built a temple in her honour. She still stands there, an orange faced goddess on an altar strewn with marigolds: devotees believe that those who seek her divine favour are never disappointed.

Chor Bazar ( not sure of the...

by rynning

Chor Bazar ( not sure of the spelling again). This is a bazar where you can buy absolutely everything! Car engines to bananas. A lot of people and a lot of India. We stayed there for about one hour and I think it is enough. The fruit and vegetable markets are great, but when you come to the meat market I think you should think twice before you enter.
