    Khyber: Frontier Cuisine

    by wrldtravler Updated Jan 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
    Chicken Makhani.
    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.

  • My favorite restaurant is...

    by rynning Updated Mar 27, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite restaurant is Khyber.
    The atmosphere is very nice and the service is good. I'm very fond of interior design and this restaurant looks great.

    Favorite Dish: Kulfi with nudles. It looks really strange. It's like ice-cream with nudles. Their tandoori dishes are also superb.

  • Basilico: Basilico - Expensive but worth it

    by frangelico Updated Dec 28, 2005

    Very expensive but the ambience and the gourmet food, desserts, coffee and mocktails make up for that. Really loved the food

    Favorite Dish: The lychee juice/smoothie was the most unique and the best drink I ever had.

    Olives: Cool Place

    by liqdstar Written Apr 13, 2006

    Ok this is SO not the place if you are looking for authentic Indian food. But since I am Indian, it was a cool spot to meet for drinks and non-indian food.

    The drinks are awesome (one of the few place in India where you can get a good mixed-drink)
    and the ambience is nice. There is an outdoor bar, which also has some tables set up for dinner. Lots of candles & white stucco walls, very cute.

    The food is great! we loved everything! It's a mix of food, i guess you could call it continental/mediterranean. But we loved it because it still had a few spices, so it wasn't boring fare.

    THe prices are high for Mumbai, but when you convert it to dollars, it isnt bad (well at least not if you're comparing it to NYC resturants!). For example, a cocktail translates to about $8.

    The service is ok, could be better.

    It's a nice place for a visit, but it's very NYC/LA/South Beach (you get the point)- so most definitely NOT the place for people looking for authentic Indian stuff.

    Mainland china: Best buffet

    by ismailb Written Jul 24, 2005
    At mainland china buffet

    The restaurant is an awsome place. Very nice ambience. The weekend buffet ( for about 340Rs./head ) is p good. Otherwise try the chicken with spinach or the peking style duck ( 3 course ) preparation .

    Favorite Dish: Crabs sauteed in shrimp sauce.

  • MoMo Cafe: Courtyard Marriott, Mumbai: Awful....

    by sachintalreja Written Jun 8, 2011

    Where to start: Be there to spoil your day, its the worst place be in.

    Service -- Pathetic to say the least. It took 15 minuntes to even get a glass of water when requested. No manager there, when you insist you want to see one; any help is introduced to you as the manager (when we asked it was Sharmistha). You complain about the service and they will start questioning and blaming you rather than try to fix the problem.
    Food -- uncooked, tasteless. Even something as simple as rice was dry, served cold. AVOID
    Price - grossly overpriced

  • The Wedding Cafe and Lounge: The best Pasta I have had in Mumbai

    The Restaurant (TWCL)
    1 more image

    TWCL is a fusion food cafe and lounge. A very classy and multi activity eatery. They have a number of food festivals and lifestyle tie ups in the restaurant itself and it made my experience as a consumer, super awesome.

    Favorite Dish: Seared Prawns in Garlic Sauce is simply unexplainable. A must try!

    Trattoria: Italian Fine Dining

    by nsurati Written Apr 8, 2008

    Trattoria at Taj President has been a must visit restaurant on my list since quite sometime now. I finally treated myself to a scrumptious and delightful meal at Trattoria on my birthday this year. Trattoria is the 24 hour coffee shop at Taj President and is very famous in mumbai for its italian cuisine. The ambience is typical 5 star coffee shop with the exception of an open kitchen which makes it interesting. The patrons are usually families and hence its not exactly a quiet place but chaos has its own charm!The restaurant does not take any reservations and hence it can be slightly difficult for a big group during dinner time, but the wait is well -worth.

    Favorite Dish: I have only been once to this restaurant and had a vegetarian capriossca pizza. It was simply gorgeous with just the right amount of cheese and toppings and everything seemed very fresh. My boyfriend had a trattoria pizza which had ham, sausage and prawns on the pizza and according to him it was simply amazing!

    The dish I would recommend is the capcuccino tart. Its a very simple, different and absolutely yummy way to end your meal. The tart is made of coffee with chocolate filled inside and topped with cashewnut icecream. The tart is freshly baked when you order the dessert, hence it takes some time for the dish to be presented to you. The combination of the hot tart with the cold icecream is to die for!

    Tendulkar's: Cricketer's haven

    Bombay duck (= fish)
    1 more image

    High quality restaurant with prompt service. Everything is build around the Sachin Tendukar's achievements and character. However, this is not a pure sport's themed restaurant but it tries to achieve more high end touch in its offering.

    Menu combines mixture of Indian, Chinese and European dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Goan prawn curry, tandoori prawns and lobster are delight.
    The Bombay duck is worth of tasting here, however even with good will it cannot be listed as a India's culinary present to the rest of the world.

  • JW Marriot hotel: Superb buffet dinner

    by xanderde Written Aug 31, 2008

    The marriott hotel is fantastic, especially when contrasted to some of the shabby hotels and streets of mumbai. The restaurant is superb. The service is excellent, the ambience is great and the range quality and price of food is very good.

    the drinks are expensive; they only have imported spirits so a scotch whisky for example will cost you at least 700-900INR ($14-$18)! But the buffet itself is all you can eat for 1200INR ($24) which if you can afford it is more than worth it.

    The restaurant is a swathe of marble with spacious buffet bars, ranging from fresh pasta and pizza, dosa, dim sum and grilled meat and fish all with their own chefs who will make your food and bring it to your table. there is also an excellent range of bread, sald, soup and indian dishes such as paneer, dal etc. the attention to detail is great, such as, I was travelling alone for business and they gave me a free newspaper to read whilst at dinner!

  • China House: High end; low service

    by kapilnevatia Written Oct 15, 2007

    The restaurant ambience is appropriate for the price points. It also doubles up as a lounge bar towards the evening.

    The food was okay ( whatever we ordered ), but the prices are steep and portions are small ... even compared to regular up market restaurants. Does not allow you to try variety if you are in a small group.

    The worst part was the attitude of the waiters. They are used to seeing actors and celebrities on a daily basis so for the lesser mortals, they are oblivious to your needs. The service here is terrible.

    Bharat Excellensea: Top-class seafood in Taj Mahal district

    by JeanLouisV Written Oct 31, 2007
    1 kilo crab
    2 more images

    This is serious seafood, top in the world, in this unassuming looking restaurant located close to the Taj Mahal hotel (5 minutes taxi drive).
    Most recommended is the live crab, cooked in simple butter and garlic sauce. It is huge (1 kilo), freshly killed, and conserves all its juice. Full of meat, you easily cut through it using simple-looking but effective special scissors (must better than the ineffective claws).
    Then, a prawns curry and rice crepes, crispy outside and fluffy in the middle.
    Such a meal for 2, washed with beer and sundry starters/deserts, totals only Rps 2,000. Excellent for one of the best crabs every eaten in the world. You will immediately taste the difference compared to other seafood places serving old, dry crabmeat.

    HIGH-END RESTAURANTS: Indian food is not hot

    by laptop_traveller Written Sep 24, 2004

    Ok, lets try it, I told myself walking don the alley of Taj hotel, the look is good and in any case this is India, and I always want to try some local food to be able to share a comment on it.
    Heading for the smoking section, which does not prevent my taste too much, the guy told me the food was going to be nothot at all, specially made for a westerner like me ,ets.
    Well, the dip sauce was hell, but nice, helps a lot a beer drinker to get on his passion freely, right...
    The giant prawns were the culpable for my tommy ache till 5 am though, and this is not fair, when you pay 50 plus euros for a dinner, right?
    Any how, will post a pic of those rubber prawns for you to avoid, unless your stomach is llined with iron or copper.
    A great palce to eat is the chines in the Taj, had a crab soup and a big bowl of rice, with tea, perfect fo a post hangover night.
    The turkey club sandwich at the Harbour bar is a must try, perfectly made straight from the manual of the perfect cooker.
    All in all, the best meal is always breakfast, with a view on the seaside and the Gate of India, perfect coffee, and here is an Italian's point of view !
    Dont forget to try the sushi bar upstairs !!!!

    Favorite Dish: nice rice, no mice, hehehe
