A brilliant hotel! They picked us up from the airport even though we were three hours late, and treated us like royalty, nothing was too much trouble.
Very comfortable hotel, with fantastic rooftop restaurant and lovely food. If I ever had to stay overnight in Mumbai, I would stay here.
Favorite Dish: Best Hotel for Staying in Mumbai in Central location ...
The Sea Food is so Fresh, you can choose your pick of Live Lobsters and Jumbo Crabs and have them cooked for you.
Taste is good. Rates are O.K
Taste is more of south indian cusine.
Favorite Dish: Tandoori Crab.
Just a short walk from the Dadar Station (West), Visawa Restaurant has seen many office-goers grab a quick meal comprising hot "idlis", "dosas", "uttapams" and "medu wadas". For more than fifty years, this restaurant has been literally overflowing with customers. Here you will hear all the city gossips, over endless cups of tea and coffee, alongside tasty crispy snacks. Along with Mama Kane (a neighboring restaurant some distance away), this is also a pure vegetarian diner. But while the latter serves authentic "Maharashtrian" food, this one caters primarily to South Indian and Punjabi cuisines.
Favorite Dish: hot "idlis", "dosas", "uttapams"medu wadas
We have been eating at and ordering from Pizza Casa for years. Although they offer several types of cuisine - an unlikely combination of Italian, Mexican, Lebanese, European, & Sizzlers, - we've always stuck with the salads and pizza/Italian.
They offer about 30 types of veg and non-veg pizza (8 and 12 inch sizes), a good assortment of starters (appetizers), great salads, pastas, and even quiche.
My favorite dishes are the salads (potato, Russian), baked mushrooms with cheese (delicious) and a few chicken pizzas. Their pizzas are made with fresh dough, homemade sauce, real Italian herbs, and cheese. Regular and deep dish are available.
They have outdoor tables in a great people-watching spot.
Pizzas run about $2.50-3.00 and the 8 inch will serve 2 if you have starters or salad.
Urban Tadka serves excellent North Indian/Punjabi cuisine. I loved the ambience, which is reminiscent of a north Indian dhaba - a traditional highway restaurant. Urban Tadka serves both veg and non-veg dishes.
The menu includes various chicken, mutton, and seafood dishes as well as various tikkas, kebabs, biryanis, daals, etc. - something for everyone. My favorite dish is the Methi Chicken.
Prices are a little more expensive than local "cheap" restaurants but would still be considered moderate. You can eat very well for under $5 a person.
Urban Tadka is extremely popular and unfortunately they do not take reservations. Try it for lunch or go early (by 7:30) for dinner.
Both take-out and local home delivery are available.
There is another branch located at "R" Mall, Mulund West (022 25614473/74/75).

I went to Iran in 2008 and had good Parsi food. Despite there are recommendations on Jimmy Boy restaurant for parsi food, I found tere was nothing outstanding about it. I tried the set meal "Lagan nu Bhonu" for Rs475 (Jun 09). It consists fish in wrapped banana leaves, fri3ed chichen and rice with mutton + dessert.
See more pics for the food and the set meal menu.
Have a cup of orange pekoe Darjeeling Tea in the Tea Centre resides just next to the churchgate station in Mumbai. You can get to experience near colonial feel in the restaurant, specially when you call the waiter with a silver bell, which is placed on each table of the restaurant.
I had tea and scone served with jam and fresh whipped cream in one afternoon and it was a great experience. Tea costs Rs60-80 (for a pot of 2 cups) and scone Rs.60 for 3 pieces. (Jun 2009).
Cafe Penne is located on a nice lane in Juhu. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. We went on a Sunday for brunch which included an antipasti station, a salad bar, breads, and a desert bar. There are manned counters for fresh pizza, pastas, and eggs.
There were a few things that we didn't enjoy about this brunch. The food was only mediocre - there are better places in Mumbai for pasta. The manned counters were just a station where they took your order and then placed it with the kitchen. While that ensured that everything was fresh, the long wait time made it more like restaurant service. The selection - especially the deserts - was sparse. And unfortunately if you eat inside the restaurant, it's very noisy.
I don't think that this was worth almost $25 a person. And my test of a recommendation is....would I return? The answer here would be no.
Brunch is served on Sundays 12:30-5:00 p.m.
Cost is Rs 1200 a person
Merwan's Cake Shop is a local favorite. There are at least a dozen different types of cakes (everything from chocolate truffle to pineapple!) that can be bought by the slice or the kg. Freshly baked breads and cookies, chocolate and mango mousse, etc. are also sold here.
But two of the most popular items at Merwan's are the mawa cakes and chicken pattice. The mawa cakes are heavy/dense un-iced "cupcakes". (See - http://www.sanjeevkapoor.com/Recipe.aspx?RecipeId=2173&Header=Recipe%20Of%20The%20Day - for photo and recipe.) Mawa cakes are a must try!
The pattice (a rectangular kind of "puff" pastry) are sold in chicken, mutton, or veg flavor but I have only had the chicken and chicken garlic pattices , which I highly recommend!! The flaky pastry and chicken just melt in your mouth!! But you must get there early - the pattice are usually sold out by late afternoon/early evening.
If you are anywhere near Andheri West train station, stop in at Merwan's!!
Open 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Customized cakes and home delivery are available.
Many American chain/fast food restaurants are now in India. Those include McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Subway, KFC, Ruby Tuesday's, and TGI Fridays. In general they have not translated well to India. The obvious difference being no beef and more vegetarian dishes.
Pizza Hut and Dominos are decent but don't expect NY pizza! McDonald's has veggie burgers and a very heavy McChicken burger. Didn't have a good experience at KFC, and Ruby Tuesday's and TGI Fridays are comparatively expensive and not very good. The best of the bunch - if you want a break from Indian food - is Subway. At least the ingredients are fresh - a chicken sandwich is probably the best bet.
These chains are located throughout Mumbai and always at the malls. Many of them offer home delivery as well. Meals at the fast food places run about $2.
Normal Mc Donalds, mostly Chicken Burgers.
After six month of all Indian food (which is delicious is and i still LOVE it) I found a McDonalds opposide of the Train Station. It reminded me of Home and I went in. .........
This place serves the favourite food of Mumbaiites from Rajasthan, south India and gujarat and surprise like falafel as well.
There is always a long que , so be the first one or you'll end up waiting for an hour long que.
12 pm and 6 pm is the corect time to reach to get a table immidiately. No resrvations.
Though the restaurant is not expensive , but the food quality is excellent and service is quick.
The place is mostly full of families with children.
Favorite Dish: Dishes like paanki (garlicky rice pancakes steamed in banana leaves) , Pav bhaaji, Paani puri, sev puri, and hand-churned fresh fruit ice creams , Sugarcane juice, kaala khatta gola sherbet .
Very interesting menu. This is a Vegetarian restaurant
A Western – style bakery.
The have an amazing range of brownies, and a good selection of cakes, croissants etc
They also serve light meals and good coffee.
Although very small, it is well air-conditioned and have a few tables to sit down and relax.
This place is located a fair way down Shahid Bhagat Singh Road (Colaba Causeway) past the BEST bus depot. It's a tiny place, (it has a seating capacity of about 30), which gets very popular with young Mumbai students. There were several in there when I ate and there's a good reason. It's a little jewel of a place that serves mostly continental food such as steaks, pastas, pizzas, burgers etc. I had a proper beef steak (my first in India after over 10 weeks touring around!) which came with a mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes and veg. A change from Indian food, which I do adore so don't get me wrong. But a change is good from time-to-time and I was hankering after beef which is normally unavailable as cows are considered sacred. They also do some great western desserts such as Irish coffee cheesecake, banofee pie, apple pie etc. The total came to Rs270 after dessert and a drink. Great place and recommended if you want a break from Indian food but you may have to wait for a seat!
11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. to Midnight
