After a lot of recommendations, tried, finally tried Café Noorani at Tardeo.

For starters, we ordered the Chicken Platter which was decent. Taste was good but some of the items had excessive food color, something I'm not quite fond of. You surely don't want your friend chicken dipped in a fluorescent green batter. The dips weren't great, we had to ask for green chutney, something which is served at all restaurants by default when you order a starter.

Chicken Shanghai is what I'd recommend, the taste was totally different compared to the thousand of fried chicken dishes I've tried in Mumbai restaurants and stalls.

The Baida Roti was delicious and the portion size seemed good. Definitely better than Ayubs, where you get a really tiny piece for a not-so-tiny sum of money!

Since we were overloaded with starters, we decided to skip main course and dive straight into Biryani. Again, decent. Nothing spectacular.

Ambience wise the place is decent. Not overly comfy nor shabby.

Overall 3/5.

Eating out at new restaurants like Bombay Canteen, Farzi Cafe, Masala Bar, Anncensored, Dishkyaaon, Fatty Bao, Masala Library, Pa Pa Ya, Smoke House Deli, Indigo, Monkey Bar, Pali Village Cafe etc. can easily put you back by atleast 2.5k per head.

Everything is exorbitantly priced these days. With the growing salaries in the working class & spending power, they're just kinda ripping you off these days really.

Been to all the above places & many more in the past 6 months to a year but have lost the fun & excitement due to their greed. I just go out to such places for socialising with friends.

Rant over.

Had lunch at Woodside inn at Todi mills. Their menu of food is simply outstanding with some of the dishes new over and above the ones available at their older outlets. I highly recommend an outing here

90 Feet Above - Borivali West

Rating - 1/5

Well, I learnt it the hard way not to trust reviews on Zomato. Visited the above restaurant with extended family recently and it was a complete let down. Except the open roof top ambience, nothing else was good. The prices are expensive and the food was bad! Extremely disappointed.

Zomato has generally treated me well. Some of the best restaurants I've found have been due to them.

If you're looking for veggie food in Borivali, try out 'On the go' veg lounge. Excellent grub.
