    Moti Mahal

    Beautiful interior, decorated in a modern fashion ; up-market atmosphere.
    Serves North Indian food. The quality of the food is above average – and well worth the money.
    A bit more expensive than the average restaurant.
    Starter, main and soft drink – Rs 900

    Favorite Dish: Everything I had was great!

    Trishna: Crab cravings

    by Tijavi Updated Jun 14, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At your service!

    The food was not great, not bad either. I was craving for some familiar, hometown taste - fresh, juicy, succulent crabs - and Trishna did meet that expectation, although the crabs are not as succulent as those from the Philippines. I ordered butter pepper garlic crab and did have a satisfying meal.

    Ambience? So-so :-)

    Favorite Dish: Crabs, although I still think those from my home country, the Philippines, are still the tastiest and most succulent. In any case, good enough to answer my crab cravings in a foreign land.

    Café Basilico Bistro and Deli: Chic café in Colaba

    by Tijavi Updated Jan 12, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good food, bad picture

    It was serendipity, plain and simple. I was walking along Arthur Bunder Road, in what could be Mumbai's version of Arab Quarters, looking for an exciting and novel Middle Eastern gastronomical experience, when I stumbled upon this quaint restaurant with a chic European ambiance (there goes my search for a Middle Eastern gastronomical experience!).

    Upon entering Basilico's ancient double door, my nostrils were greeted with the wondefully intoxicating scent of basil - an auspicious prelude to an evening of great food.

    Their pastas, al dente, and smoothered with in-house sauces, are a great way to chase hunger pangs away. I specifically loved the basic pesto - pure, simple, healthy.

    Don't forget to try the chargrilled mediterranean chicken with fresh herbs and mustard - tender chicken breast sprinkled with aromatic herbs, and mustard sauce imparting a more robust flavor. It was a little bit salty for me, though.

    The lentil sauce on the pan-fried scallops adds an Indian twist to what is an otherwise plain seafood fare. The rich and powerful lentil sauce provides good contrast to the scallops' primitive marine flavors.

    And yes, cap your meal with their sinful desserts. Make mine a cheesecake.

    Pearl of the Orient: Exclusivity comes with a price

    by sushart Written Aug 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, the only thing that gives a "thumbs up" to this restaurant is the view of the city from its revolving tower.
    it is quite an experience to sit there and watch the citylights go in cirlces around you. You feel like you are the centre of the universe!
    Other than that, i found the management to be snooty, and quite bad service. They tell you right in the beginning, you have to eat a minimum of such and such amount each person (think it was 700rs) or else you are not welcome. Not in such exact words, but not very far off the truth. Quite hated the snootiness of the place.

    Favorite Dish: Cannot remember what i liked, was so angry with the waiters and maitr'd.

    Maybe the food was good?
    Only the view satisfied me.

    The Dome: at the Intercontinental

    by uglyscot Updated Sep 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    pouring over the menu

    The restaurant is very classy, and popular. We were unable to get seats near the windows to be able to see the view, so sat at a large central table with comfortable soft armchairs, spacious but intimate. Service was prompt.
    The restaurant works from 6pm to 1.30 am.

    Favorite Dish: The menu made making a choice difficult. We ended up having starters : potato platter which consisted of potatoes cooked in so many different delicious ways. We also had chcken and were so full that we opted against a main course.
    The coconut mocktail was also delicious.

    Entrance to the Mumbai Hard Rock outpost

    I am not an aficionado of the Hard Rock chain, but one of our group was, which is how we ended up at Mumbai’s outpost in the Parel district. The setting is quite incongruous (though far from unique here in Mumbai) with valet parking and the typical Hard Rock popular culture scene within - overpriced deep-fried foods and t-shirts amidst a panoply of music videos - while directly outside, the streets are lined with families living on the sidewalks under plastic tarps.

    Vie Lounge: Great Mediterranean cuisine

    by nsurati Written Aug 6, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An elite, up-market lounge cum restaurant. They serve Mediterranean cuisine and according to a friend of mine, the best steak he has ever eaten, and he has eaten quite a few, so I believe him!!!.

    A very different food experience for sure and the ambience is breathtaking. It overlooks the Juhu beach but is quite far away from the populated beach section. Ask for a table outside and enjoy the cool breeze with the dinner. The best of all is the complimentary bread basket with some amazing butters. These are garlic butter and mushroom butter. I do not know where to get them from, or if they make them themselves but I would not mind going there to eat only that. Its the best thing I have ever eaten.

    They have some really unusual combinations for cocktails and an extensive range of liquers to choose from as well.

    HIGH-END RESTAURANTS: While at the Gateway

    The Buffet at the Taj Mahal Palace costs 1,100 Rupees, but compared to ordering off the menu it is a bargain. If you are going to splurge this is the place to do it. Don't be on a diet when you dig into this buffet. The buffet includes juice, coffee and a fabulous desert bar.

    Favorite Dish: The whole desert bar

    5 Spice: Don't miss best chinese food in town

    by ni3sgalave Written Jul 14, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another new location, this time in Malad, proves that Mumbaikars love robust and chatpata Indo-Chinese fare. There are special sections for vegetarians at these pleasant, large and bright restaurants with Chinese paintings and table-bench furniture. At all five locations, they serve up generous portion sizes overflowing with spices (too much at times; pair with a drink like Long Island Iced Tea) in dishes like Burnt Chilli Rice, Exotic Hot Wok (veg) and Burnt Hot Wok Chicken. Crab in Schezuan and Burnt Chilli Sauce or Schezuan Noodles? Chilli Pepper Chicken or Butter Garlic Prawns? It’s this variety and the excellent desserts (Death by Chocolate and Chocolate Mud Cake) that keep these cheery eateries buzzing. Our pick? Fortune Rice and Roast Chilli Chicken. Cap it off with Sizzling Brownie, heaped generously with ice cream or Rocky Road

    Favorite Dish: Best Dish is "Garlic fish fry"

    Barbeque Nation Andheri West

    Visited the restaurant for the first time and i must say it was rewarding experience

    Simply amazing . am a hardcore non vegetarian and this place is mint for me .

    There are enough options for both veg & non veg starters and i must mention that veg starters were enticing enough to get me to try them .

    Special mention to grilled pineapples which had just the right balance of sweet tangy & spicy .The rashmi kabab are soft and prawn also good .

    Chicken leg piece (chicken tangadi) , mushrooms , panneer ,meat well prepared & served nicely .

    The main course ,like an all buffets isn't much to speak about , but the mint ball soup is absolute heaven .

    desserts was ice cream with toppings strange gulab jams ,cheese cake was awesome

    But overall a very good experience

    I will surely visits in every month .

    Favorite Dish: All non veg

    Palkhi: Beautiful restaurant, gourmet food!

    by AndreSTGT Updated Nov 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Palkhi is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Bombay and i am quite sure that this is no exaggeration.
    Here we had by far the most pleasant dining experience and the most delicious food on our entire trip.
    This is an upmarket place and prices are high for India, but still very cheap compared to Europe. We paid around 20$ between the two of us.

    Favorite Dish: Palkhi serves sumptuous traditional Mughal food and everything we ordered was gorgeous!

    New in town is Mangi Ferra, italian for mango tree. This is a dining bar located on Gulmohar Cross Road No 7, Juhu. It's where the old Mai Thai used to be and is totally transformed into a relaxed, charming and contemporary restaurant. The place has been conceptualised by Prashant Chaudhri and Rajesh Sharma with chef Vijayraj Singh Chauhan at the helm. There's authentic Italian fare like Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, handcrafted exotic pizzas, starters and a selection of wines, spirits and cocktails
