TENDULKARS RESTURANT: CRICKET MEMOROBILIA AND GREAT FOOD
Tendulkars is not only a great place to eat. It houses a treasure of cricket memorabilia, depicting the sporting achievments of the legendry "little master"- Sachin Tendulkar.The restuarant is owned by him.
The museum collection displays items such as the bat given to him by Don Bradman and `World Cup 2003' cricket memorabilia, which includes the `Man of the Tournament Trophy', the `I Can WE Can' poster that was signed by the Indian Cricket Team before every match they played, his lucky orange socks and more.
The restuarant is very modern, with a comfortable seating area surrounding the dining area.Air-conditioned, it was beautifully cool on the very warm day that we had lunch there.
The service was excellent, and our waiter, who could speak about 6 languages, gave us not only good service- he also gave us some excellent ideas of things to do and see in Mumbai.
The food was delicious- something for every taste. My husband had tomato soup, followed by (believe it!!) a VEGETARIAN PASTA!! I was only a bit more adventurous- I had vegetable biryani, aloo mattar ( a potato dish) and a salad (crispy fresh, and loaded with nuts)
This was followed by dessert- which was as usual, our absolute favourite- Kulfi.
There is an extensive wine list .
Favorite Dish: Kulfi- similar to ice cream, but more solid. It comes in different flavours, we prefer Pistachio.
The texture was perfect. Flavour divine.Related to:

???: Indian pizza...
If you feel like having a pizza, reach Churchgate Station and soon after the Tea Centre, the first restaurant cooking pizza is the place for you... sorry I cannot remember the name but its pizza was really good: I even made compliments to the cooks behind the pizza counter as their pizza dough was in the perfect Italian style.
And... you can choose an Indian topping for it: simply order the Indian pizza which is with chicken and of course chilli pepper!Related to:

Hotel Sindhudurg.: Malvani Cuisine Restaurant.
Gleaming stainless steel table tops with three levels of seating in an air conditioned setting and some very fast service with very helpful staff to explain the ingredients used to make the different dishes to our foreign guests!!! Not too expensive for the quality as well as quantity of food served!!! Located in a small lane off the busy Dadar residential area.
Favorite Dish: Solkadi has to be it but it is not a dish as it is only a drink or something like a curry but can be drunk from a glass!!! Delicious if eaten with plain rice too as it is sweet, spicy and tangy!!! Made of coconut and kokum mixed together with a paste of coriander, green chillies, garlic and ginger to taste. The seafood is something that is special as it is from the coastal area that this place is famous for it's cuisine. We had the mackerel and pomfret along with some king prawns too. We also ordered the fish thali so it comes with a curry, some vegetables, rice and some solkadi too along with chappatis or wadas (like a puri).
Sundance Cafe at Eros Cinema!!: The best Sizzlers of Bombay!
I have been going to Bombay since long as my company HQ is at Church Gate, Bombay. I had the opportunity to have food at many places. Bombay offers excellent food at very reasonable price ( It is the cosliest Indian city) in a clean atmosphere! Why clean, I have been to all Indian cities and the food inspectors are quite active at Bombay than other Indian cities, especially at Budget eating houses. Healthwise you can be rest assured that budget hotels/ restaurants wont make you sick.
I have been visiting Sundance Cafe for their Sizzlers and Mini meals with draught beer for the last 22 years. And believe me I am yet to find a better place to eat your meals at a highly resonable price. Their Chieken/ Ham/ Beef steak sizzlers or Mixed grill sizzlers cost about Rs200- 250 or USD 4-5 and goes down well with Beer ( about Rs 60/- per mug or USD 1.5). will suggest the travellers going to Churchgate station ( any way you will be going there if you are in Bombay!), to give this place a try and feel the atmosphere! It is next to Eros cinema building no one can miss this place. Many movie stars are known to have visiting this place to taste their food.
Favorite Dish: I had their Mixed grill sizzlers and Steak Sizzlers many time. Since I dont eat Beef, so they compensated the Mixed Grill with lots of Ham. Their beer is also excellent.
Tea Centre: Indian Tea
The tea centre, as its name suggests, specialises in tea, all types of tea. Tea is grown in the highlands of India and some of the famous tea is from India. So, have your pick in the long list of tea menu at the Tea Centre. Happy drinking!
Jimmy Boy Restaurant: Parsi cuisine--a Bombay specialty
Jimmy Boy is a Parsi restaurant that I was dying to try, so Aadil and I went there one Saturday night. Surprisingly, it was almost empty, but apparently this is more of a lunch place catering to the local office crowd. The food was great! I was dying to try the whole menu, but after two thali meals in a row, I wasn’t able to fit in too much. I had the patra ni macchhi (pomfret steamed in a banana leaf with a paste made from chilis, cilantro, and coconut) and khara bhendi (okra stewed in a rich sauce of roasted tomatoes). The okra dish was stupendous--the flavor of the sauce was positively mind-bending. Finally, I did manage to stuff in a dessert, lagan nu custard. The name means “wedding” custard, and it was really interesting--a square of egg custard flavored with cardamom and an ingredient called charoli, which is a nut or seed, as far as I can make out (couldn’t find an English translation for it). This is the only dessert I’ve had in India that’s based on eggs.
Favorite Dish: Jimmy Boy also has a tandoori and basic Indian menu, as well as a rather bizarre selection of western-style sandwiches served with potato chips. But the Parsi items on the menu are the big draw. Stick here and you won’t go wrong.
Tea Centre.: The best tea in town!!!
The best place to have the best tea in town!!! It serves a lovely breakfast menu as well as lunch and dinner but the main thing in this place is the TEA!!! There are so many different varieties that you will find it difficult to choose and pick from the scores of different types available!!! From flavoured teas to the best orange pekoe teas that you can get this side of town!!! Available in tea pots meant for two or six depending on the number of people drinking!!! Iced tea flavours available too!!! You can buy the tea at the tea shop outside the restaurant too!!! There is a poster explaining the whole tea making process for your information too. Teas from different tea gardens like Assam, Darjeeling, Nilgiris and Kashmir are available in different flavours and types too, so take your pick!!! I'm sure you will enjoy atleast one of them!!! A lot of other pastries and snacks available throughout the day and special lunch and dinner menus are also worth trying out for some special Indian or continental cuisine!!!
Favorite Dish: The best tea in town!!! Need I say more?!!! HAHAHA!!!Related to:

Ras Raj: My daily fill of falooda!
My VT friend Aadil first brought me here, and since then I have become addicted to Mumbai faloodas.
Ras Raj serves mainly drinks and a wide range of simple dishes from dahl to scrambled eggs till about 11PM.
Favorite Dish: DRY FRUIT FALOODA (40RS)
PISTA KULFI FALOODA
Pop Tates: Fun Place, Good Food & Beer
A great place to relax and hang out. Happy hours beer by the pitcher, pastas, pizzas, burgers, interesting appetizers, etc. Music/TVs, indoor/outdoor seating. Gets crowded at night and weekend days (for happy hours!). Lots of fun! Also home delivery if you live in the area.
Food Inn is a restaurant along Colaba Causeway (on the eastern side where all the stalls are). I had passed many times, but not until the last evening I went inside to have something to eat. I sat down at a table where the fan above was off, but as soon as I took my seat they turned the fan on. I asked them to turn it off again as I don’t like all the wind from them. Upstairs there is a room with air condition.
Once again I asked the waiter to recommend me something that was not hot and spicy and he recommended vegetarian kadai. Vegetarian kadai is dumplings made of mixed, mashed vegetables in a rich cashew sauce. It tasted very good and was absolutely one of the best meals I had in India. I wish I had visited this restaurant earlier.
The price in June 2010 was:
Vegetarian kadai Rs 85
Nan bread Rs 15
Water bottle (1 litre) Rs 18
Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel: Tea at the Taj
Take a break for tea. Enjoy the AC and read all the major dailies in style.
A pot of Earl Grey will run you 95 RS (just over 1£ or $2!)
If you are lucky (as I was) you can sneak out and lay out by the pool for the day. Why spend £150 for a room when you don't have to!
Favorite Dish: They do a good Kesari Rasmali, but a bit pricey at 195RS!!
Kobe Sizzlers: Super Size Sizzlers
The best sizzlers in town!
So what is a sizzler? It is a combination of meat/fish and veggies, grilled, fried, sauted and served on a hot iron plate that sizzles when it is served!
The best are the steaks and fried potatoes. But you could have any other delicious combination. You have to get used to the smoky atmosphere though. And you could also order a delicious iced lemon tea with mint, to go with your meal.
Favorite Dish: The steaks and the chicken dishes are a feast. The seafood is a bit on the expensive side.
Shree Datta Boarding House: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!
Its a small place without any frills and very tasty malvani style home cooking. Earlier it was in the back of a chawl one wld have found it extremely diff to find but they are now on the main rd. Even though the place has come out on main rd the food is still having good quality.
You can pamper yourself in taste whilst you savor the lobsters, oysters, pomfret and prawns. Offering a value for money cuisine, Shree Datta Boarding House is one of the authentic Malwani food restaurent.

Moreover, the average price for two here comes to a decent Rs. 250 to Rs. 500.
Favorite Dish: Malvani cuisine is the standard cuisine of the Konkan region of Maharashtra and Goa, and some northern parts of West Karnataka. Although Malvani cuisine is predominantly non-vegetarian, there are many vegetarian delicacies. Although it is an independent cuisine, it overlaps Maharashtrian cuisine and Goan cuisine. Malvan is a town in the Sindhudurg district on the west coast of Maharashtra.
Malvan being a coastal area in Konkan, it has its own distinct way of cooking food. Malvani cuisine uses coconut liberally in various forms such as grated, dry grated, fried, coconut paste and coconut milk.
Kombdi Vade is a non-vegetarian dish, which is quite popular in Maharashtra. The dish consists of the traditional Malvani chicken curry (including chicken pieces with bones), vade (like a puri, which is a fluffy, fried bread of wheat and nachni flour), onion, lemon and solkadhi.
Solkadhi is an energizing curry drink, highly popular in Konkan. It is made from coconut milk and kokam. It is usually served with Kombdi Vade, various fish delicacies and Mutton Malvani. Bombil Fry or Bombay Duck Fry is an immensely popular dish.Related to:
