TRATTORIA: 5 STAR LUXURY
Trattoria is the the five star hotel President's Italian restaurant. Open at all times of the day (and night) it has long been one of the city's most pleasant places for a late-late dinner. Long time Bombayites will complain that since the only comparison is with all-night roadside eateries, this is not much of a recommendation. To mollify such critics-- even during peak dinner hours Trattoria is a good choice.
Favorite Dish: Good pasta is rare in Bombay. It would have been non-existent but for this restaurant. Try a fusili with chicken, cannelloni stuffed with cheese and spinach and (really gorging!) a gnocchi with lamb. All three are excellent. A glance at the menu shows that each kind of pasta comes in two recipes-- one vegetarian, the other not
Ankur: Pomphret Malgudi and Authentic Kori Rootti
Be sure to order the Pomfret Malgudi to start your meal with.
It also provides an excellent ambience to eat in. It is a small restaurant, 85 covers, a mezzanine included, a lot of polished wood and glass, square tables, straight-back chairs, neat table mats, a well-stocked bar, trained service, a mirror on which the day's specials are chalked.
Directions -You go a little further down Flora Fountain, towards the university, and enter the first lane on the left, near Kandeel restaurant and opposite the Grindlays Bank. Turn left at the end of the lane and immediately enter the small lane on the right. That is Tamarind Lane and Ankur is there.
Favorite Dish: The language is Tulu, kori means chicken, rooti stands for the crisp roti. It is a pretty hot curry, a little thick, almost like a gassi. A portion, priced at Rs.125, is made up of a large bowl of the curry, with four to five substantial pieces of the chicken, plus a basket piled with the roottis. You pick up a rootti, crumble it (not powder, but flat pieces) with your hand, put it in the plate, then ask the waiter to pour the curry and chicken on top of it. I prefer a lot of curry on top, to soak into the rootti and make it soft. And this is one dish you have to eat with hand. Don't worry, the restaurant provides finger bowls.
Khyber: Frontier Cuisine
Khyber is one of Bombay's most attractive and popular restaurants, with three floors of delightful rooms done up in Northwest Frontier decor -- white marble floors, terra-cotta urns, carved stone pillars, low wooden rafters, and handsome fresco murals by local artists. The waiters, dressed in Pathan tribal garb, serve delicious kebabs, rotis, and other North Indian food.
Favorite Dish: Bhutta Masala Curry - Corn in a Rich Creamy Sauce.
Pomphret Green Masala.
This is a high -end Restaurant which only cooks with mineral water and can cater to western palettes (Mild) on request. Hence feel free to order whatever you fancy.
Khyber: Carry on up the Khyber!
The Khyber is a great restaurant located in downtown Mumbai.
The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is a really great blend of northern through to southern Indian dishes.
