P.s. No idea on the meat items.

In my last visit to Mumbai, I've been to Quattros at Lower Parel. Superb place for Veg. Italian and Mexican food. Highly Recomended.

Hi
Love that comment about the owner.
Yes the quality of tea at most of the Irani joints has gone down and that too considerably. Sad.
There is another Irani place diagonally opposite Oven Fresh on Ranade Road.
On a different forum read about his good biryani. 3 days back a friend of mine had Balti chicken. He said it was very good.
2 days back had idli and wada sambhar at Mani's the first one.Very good as always.
Bon appetite and regards

That Irani joint opposite Oven Fresh is Light of Bharat. I have reviewed them a few pages back. Don't forget to try their Chinese as well! :lol

Hi.
I forgot to mention the name.
Now that you mention it I do remember your post about their Chinese food and will try it. Unfortunately nowadays I don't leave my home frequently.
Incidentally today had puri bhaaji and kothimbir wadi (made from fresh dough ) at Prakash.As always great.
Bon appetit and regards

Any ideas for a good breakfast place at 8:00 am? In South Bombay. Authentic stuff would be great. A nice Irani or maybe eggs toast types. Not overrated (Mondegar etc). I would have done Olympia kheema pav but my friend is a vegetarian. A non veg place with decent veg food will also do.

A bit pricey, but Basilico is great, or even Theobroma.

Hello,

Had Full Meal (South India) at Shri Krishna Udipi at Matunga East yesterday.

The food was simple & really good.

The price was Rs. 160 per person for unlimited food (except sweets). Kids are charged Rs. 80 per head.

Thanks,

Hi
Two of my friends nowadays prefer to eat at Mani's lunch home, near the flower market. Just a 2 minute walk from this place.It is a branch,opened 2002, of the Mani's which is near the Ruia college.
Bon Appetit and regards

Been there about a month back. Absolutely fantastic views and of-course soothing breeze! The food is all vegetarian and about average. Will recommend it just for the ambiance.

Tip - Do try to reach before sunset and ask to be seated at the tables at the ledge. You will witness amazing views of the Powai lake.

Damages for 2 - Approx INR 1800 with drinks and starters.

Kya baat hai !

I used to think that I was the only one (at least on the forum) who is mad for the Chello @ CC, especially the mutton ones.

Now, I have to plan a trip to Bombay ASAP

Thanks for the tip! Will try it next time. Copper Chimney is no opening a new branch at Viviana mall in Thane. Can't wait for it to open!

You're not the only one, for sure. And there will be many who will agree with us once they taste it.

Pro-tip:
Generally, the original restaurant has the most authentic & original taste as they have the chef who has mastered virtually all the dishes. Once its turned into a franchise, the taste is found wanting in my opinion.

Case in point, Mainland China. The first Mainland China at Saki Naka near my factory is the only place i enjoy the food. Rest of the Mainland China outlets sadly don't even have half the great taste of what you get at Saki Naka.
