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

https://www.zomato.com/mumbai/90-ft-above-borivali-west

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.

Anyone know any good places near Oberoi Mall where one can buy dry snacks (namkeen) and also fresh, hot stuff like samosas, kachoris etc. I am looking for places lid D Damodar in Dadar. Both separate also ok - I mean a separate store for dry snacks and a separate on for hot stuff.

Jalaram stores at Gokuldham which is a little ahead of Oberoi Mall is a good place for samosas,etc. Not so sure about dry snacks.

5 Spice Matunga E (Maheshwari Udyan Circle) - Worst experience

They sent us Non Veg food and that too in Veg container. We had ordered all vegetarian food but were shocked to see the containers full of non-veg food. It was really a horrible experience for us.

On top of that the hotel staff was acting very smart, very bad attitude.

Earlier it was just a Pure Veg hotel and hence we had ordered home delivery but never knew they had started non-veg. Only after this escapade I went to Zomato to read the reviews.

Apparently, on Zomato, I later found out that it has happened not 1 but almost 6/7 times with other people too in the last 2 months.

Please publish this on Google reviews also. Search this place on Google/Maps and write your comments there also. Many people don't visit Zomato.

Very few places in Mumbai serve good Neer Dosas, Balaji Idli House in Mahavir Nagar Kandivali West happens to be one of them. Would recommend them for good South Indian grub.

Rating - 4/5

For Aaswad fans, there is an Aaswad branch open in Ghatkopar now. It's on MG road, right opposite Sindhuwadi.

Fusion Grill, CBD Belapur.

A few friends and I visited Fusion Grill last week for lunch.
This is a casual dining restaurant that serves the usual fare - Moghlai, Chinese and everything in between.
Very good ambience, very good service.
Food portions are much better for the price charged.
The wait staff is polite and patient.
Food available is veg and non veg. It has a bar too for people interested in their tipple.
My friends and I loved their chicken and fish preparations.

No valet parking. You have to pay and park and there is plenty of parking available especially in the evenings.
For those coming by train from Belapur Station, exit toward the seaface side and it will take you 10 minutes maximum to find this place.

Would recommend all Navi Mumbaikars to visit this place.
This restaurant used to be Calypso and is diagonally opposite Rainforest.

Address: Vindhya Commercial Complex, Sector 11, CBD-Belapur, Navi Mumbai

Zomato link below

I have zero commercial interest in this place. I have been here a few times and hence am recommending this place.
Enjoy & Cheers.

Oh my God, what kebabs . Just the perfect flavour, and perfectly cooked. Just as we were recovering from the kebabs came the mind-blowing dal bukhara.

Great ambience, excellent service. Very expensive (dinner for 5 came to 13k). Rating 5 stars.
Peshawari all the time. They have by far the best north Indian food I've ever eaten.

You might want to try Jyran at Sofitel (BKC) too. The dal and chicken are amazing there.

Also Busago at BKC serves some awesome Thai/Burmese food at very reasonable rates.

West to Aaswad for the first time during my India trip; Enjoyed Misal and thalipeeth.. Absolutely delicious!

A treat for vegetarians!


Qty is suspect, you have to order 2 dishes to call it lunch.But they categorize in snacks anyway.
