    Delhi Darbar

    This is a great restaurant. The food is extremely good. Mostly North Indian food of high quality and low prices.
    It can be very busy and you might struggle to get a table, as it is very popular.
    Service is also of a high standard.
    During my last visit (2010), I once again went to this restautrant and was very impressed again with the food and service.

    Favorite Dish: Punjabi Kulfi!!!!!
    Rogan Josh

    Badshah Falooda- Crawford Market, Mumbai: Falooda

    by RakeshKapadnis Updated Apr 21, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Badshah store is named after B. A. Badshah. He operated seven fruit juice shops in Mumbai during the early 1900s. He was a kind man and a wonderful employer. He died at a young age of 38 without any kids. In his will he left each of his seven shops with once of his loyal servants. Badshah at Crawford Market was inherited by Merwan Jehangir Irani - then manager of the place. He has employed a 12 year Iranian immigrant for cleaning help. Mr. Irani was impressed with the boy's ethics. When the boy grew up, he married his daughter Yasmin with the boy and handed the shop over to the couple. Aspi passed away in 1996, and Yasimin ran the should with her daughter Behnaz's husband. They also have opened a shop in Pune.

    Favorite Dish: Falooda is Zoroastrian Persia's national drink. Badshah in Crawford Market area is the place for Falooda in Mumbai. About 65% of Badshah's business comes from Faloodas. Falooda is a tall cooling milk-and-rose syrup drink with vermicelli and takmaria seeds (also known as sabjah). It is typically topped with ice-cream.
    The mango juice is Rs. 65, same size, and includes the juice of one-and-half mango. Then there is the mango ice-cream (Rs.18), all the ice-creams pista, butter-scotch, chocolate, strawberry are priced at Rs. 18. The mango melba, a speciality of the place, is Rs. 80. In a bowl you get mango slices, two scoops of ice-creams, one mango and one pista, jelly and a biscuit, what are known as the ice-cream biscuits. Fresh stocks of mangoes come from the Vashi market every day.
    The mango also forms a theme for the restaurant. At the Badshah Annexe, each table has a small mango tree in its centre. Actually, it is a bracket, cleverly designed, with mango leaves arranged in the brackets and fresh mangoes tied to them. The mango leaves are changed daily. The whole decor is fresh, nothing plastic, and, when you sit at a table, you get the aroma of fresh mangoes dangling in front of your nose. The mini-mango trees are just one of the displays at the Badshah Annexe. There is an entire wall covered with fruits, almost all the fruits in the world, apples, mosambis, chickoos, pomegranates, fringed by pineapples. And they are not just on display, they are used daily and replaced.

    Moti Mahal Restaurant: Pamper Urself Lip-smacking Flavors

    by ni3sgalave Written Jan 25, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moti Mahal

    The best Indian Food Serves Here.Indian Tandoory items like Mogulai dishesh .
    If you have been searching for authentic Punjabi and Mughlai food in Navi Mumbai and are not able to find a place, your wait has come to an end!
    Moti Mahal, as this restaurant is called, serves authentic Indian food. And to say the least, as I ate their yesterday, I found it the most delectable Mughlai cuisine (once prepared in the kitchens of the royal Mughal emperors) in town.
    Remember to skip your lunch the day you plan to have your dinner at Moti Mahal. Or you might miss out on the wonderful meal that the restaurant serves, including some wonderful options for dessert. Their Gulab Jamuns are simply out of the world delight!

    Favorite Dish: Mogulai dish, Tandoori dish¸ Chinese dish, Continental dish, Labinesh dishes....Try best " Paneer Butter Masala."

  • Shalimar Restaurant at Bhendi Bazar: Biryani N Falooda

    by mstali Written Dec 23, 2009

    Ambiance is Bad, locality too. But if you want to taste real Mughlai kind of Biryani it is it. The taste is hot. But it is spicy and Dum Biryani in its original taste as is cooked in Indian local Wedding parities.

    Favorite Dish: Mutton Biryani and Fallooda.

    Lucky Restaurant: Mumbai Famous Biryani Spot

    by ni3sgalave Written Nov 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of my familys favorite moghlai joint. If you love Moghlai food, the typical kind with the aroma of ghee and garam masalas, gotta check this place out.
    Conveniently located near bandra station, you might actually miss out the entrance to it. When I did discover lucky I was a bit skeptical whether it would be good. But once inside, I felt really good and hungry, what with the aroma of food tingling my senses.
    It has a moderate but comfortable decor. This place is not reputed for its ambience but the food makes it a worthwhile and popular joint. The service is quick and prompt. It has a reasonably good menu, that includes almost everything moghlai and punjabi. Great biryani’s, tikkas & tandoori. Reasonable pricing and good for take outs too.
    So its worth a try for the delicious moghlai food!

    Favorite Dish: No1 For Biryani's And moghllai Dishes ,Tikka's Tandoori

    Farhaad Restaurant: Delicious Moghlai

    by Donna_in_India Written Nov 13, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Farhaad specializes in Moghlai and Chinese dishes. It used to be a very small unassuming place with a few tables and chairs. They have recently changed to all take-out/delivery.

    They specialize in biryanis (mutton, chicken, veg) but my favorite dishes are (spicy) chicken cultets - which sell out well before dinnertime - and chicken reshmi kababs and butter naan.

    They have various Tandoor, Chicken, Mutton, and Veg dishes, all kinds of rice, breads (naan, roti, paratha), and Chinese dishes. They take party orders and offer home delivery.

    Daily specials run about $1.50 and a normal meal runs between $1.50 and $2.00 although you can still eat for less!

    Olympia

    This unpretentious cafe/restaurant seems to be always busy. It is a Muslim run restaurant and serves very good food at low prices.
    I had chicken biriyani, which was excellent.
    When I visited, I was the only tourist - it seems very popular with locals.

    Favorite Dish: I had very good biriyani

    Moti Mahal Deluxe: Nice indian punjabi food

    Afghan chicken and Tardoori and Kebah

    The food is good but the pricing is equivalent to Khyber and Trishna, the higher ended restaurant.

    The ambiance is a mix of arabic, punjabi with a pub next door. For few dishes, I noted they charged even more than Khyber, such as Afghan chicken.

    It is located in CR2 shopping centre in Nariman point. A meal with drinks costs about Rs.1,000 (Jun 09).

    Trishna restaurant - Indian Seafood: Very good Indian Seafood

    by Sambawalk Written Jul 5, 2009
    Trishna restaurant - Indian Seafood

    Trishna is considered one of the best in the world. Butter pepper garlic king crab is Trishna's signature dish, but you'll also find other seafood dishes. Despite its reputation, you can't tell from outside that it is a restaurant at all. Inside the restaurant is also very ordinary, but clean and a bit crowded. Trishna isn't about ambience (the decor in fact is somewhat tacky) -- everyone is here for the food. The restaurant is not big and have about 16 tables. I was there during lunch hour and the crowd started to come in about 1pm-2pm.

    Don't expect to get in any night without a reservation, unless you're willing to arrive by 7pm and be out by 8pm.

    If you only want one best indian food meal in Mumbai, make it Khyber. I visited this restaurants 2 evenings and it was very good.

    Staffs are friendly and explanined the dishes for you. Average cost for a meal per person about Rs1,000 - 1,300 (Jun 2009). Be sure you try the Leg Bara, with pieces of lamb marinated with ginger, garlic, cinnamon, cumin and other aromatic herbs
    and cooked on a tava. Tender mutton marinated overnight in Khyber’s classic spicy.

    Papa Poncho: Tandoori Food

    by alycat Updated Aug 6, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do the poncho

    The 3 of us had another wet day in Mumbai, the sunset in all its glory behind the red clouds on the Carter road esplanade, tired and hungry, as we all were after waiting for like eternity for one of our dear friends to have a very imaginative and expensive hair cut at Hakims Aalim, we ran into Papa poncho, funny name and a very funny man aswell who runs show, ad man Prahlad Kakkar. The ambience near the esplanade is perfect for the restaurant, just off Carter road.

    They dont have great interiors and on a crowded day it can be quite a task finding a place to put your hungry bum. We went upstairs, there is low ceiling, you'l have to bend yourself and sneak into the seating area and make yourself comfortable seating on the floor with Takias or small cushions. which gives this place a Dhaba type look.

    Favorite Dish: The place is reasonably good for north indian or punjabi food. We ordered some tandoori chicken, Dal Fry, and lots of tandoori roti, and finally the punjabi Lassi...satisfying and worth the bucks spent
