You brought back fond memories of my TISS days. Visits to Sunny used to be our high point. The eatery is cramped but the wait was well worth it on account of the seafood and the forbidden meat . Still remember the warm drinking water they served before the meal. Aids digestion I believe. Believe me we needed it for the copious amounts we wolfed down!

You are from TISS? Which course and year of pass out? I have been lucky to continue to live in Chembur. Sunny and Udaya were too good to miss for a sumptuous Kerela cuisine.

He should have got a Team BHP Sticker on that truck

I am confident if we merge our meet thread with this, there will be a long list of 'confirmed' members for it.

How come there is no mention of Khau Galli of Ghatkopar? So many good stuff in here.

Its like a lane with stalls in order.

1. Pani Puri - ice cold
2. SW - Cheese (alot of it) veg grill
3. Dosa - Jini Dosa being famous but I like their Manchurian one.
4. Frankie
5. Gola - End with a good malain gola or sardar special gola.
6. Paan

There is Achija at the end of the lane where you would get one of the best Pav Bhaji's and Masala Pav in the city.

Very honestly, the overall playing field has become damn competitive. As a result, I don't remember the last time I ate out & had a bad meal. As long as you do some basic research (e.g. Zomato ratings & reviews), you are all set.

Had gone to an old favourite - 145 - in Bandra recently. Surprised to know that it is still ROCKING! The food was delicious & the ambience lively. After 11 pm, they removed some tables and turned that area into a dance floor. I thought I'll make it an early night (was a Tuesday), but came home at 230 a.m. .

Can anyone tell me where I can find nice Baklava in Mumbai? I tried online too but couldn't find any reliable website. I got only one lead about Iranian shop in (probably) Mohammed Ali Road but it is only open in month of March.

Tried out the lake view Cafe at rennaisance last week. Good food and great ambience with nice staff made it a very pleasant experience

I drove by this place last week, couldn't step in and try it.
Did google the below link for you.
It is in Fort, near Citibank.
The article is speaks very highly of the place.
Let us know how good it is.

Try Bayroute, BKC or Powai - doesn't matter. I have had Baklava here and it's amazing. Be informed though that this is a very luxurious Baklava with a more luxurious price tag.

On another note: visited Bayview Cafe opposite Radio Club in Colaba. Amazing view of the Arabian Sea and equally good food. A highlight of the lunch was this Tomato, Olives, Feta Bruschetta we ordered. It was too good to be that yum, with soft bread even though well toasted. Wonder how did they get that.

It's a fine dining restaurant and they serve Baklava as a dessert, by plate.

Here is how it looks like, when served: https://www.instagram.com/p/B6GH4VmlTBd/

Head to Hurrems on DN Road at Fort. It's relatively new but the variety and the quality of the Baklavas is quite good.
