Get a taste of Mumbai (literally too). Ask for the innovatively served Mumbai Tiffin (which is opened on the table, a 7-course meal, including dessert) and which serves up Maharashtrian fare (non-veg: Rs.1,750+, veg: Rs.1,550+). The Taj Lands End's Masala Bay (part of Grand Corporate chef Hemant Oberoi's ”Masala” series) continues to serve light, olive oil-cooked fare, plated with contemporary elegance. The emphasis here is on healthy cooking, with most dishes going light on cream and butter, and yet offering traditional Indian flavours. In the first floored, somewhat boxed in ambience, it has special seats for singles, a separate lounge bar and three private dining rooms too. Indian seafood buffs drop anchor here: Anaardana Tawa Machhi, Tandoori Pink Salmon, Mirch ka Jhinga, Curd Prawn Chilli, crabs, lobsters, salmon, pomfret, basa, squid and more. The seafood has a definite edge over the rest of the fare here, be it Kokum Murgh Tikka or Galouti Kebab. Veggies have plenty of choice, starting with a Dal and a Phulka Trolley wheeled to your table for unlimited servings of your favourite Dal! Try their Hyderabadi Khatti Dal at your next visit and ask for Amritsari Kulchas that now feature on their menu. Chonka Arbi Matar, Paneer Khatta Pyaaz, Paneer Curd, Chilli Kokum, Paneer Tikka and Bhalla Chaat too. Many choices in biryanis, gravies and vegetables with unusual desserts. Jau ki Kheer (made with barley), Khajur 'n' Pethe ka Halwa, Nariyal and Coffee ki Phirni and a Kulfi Bay. Ask for the Meethi Khoj (3 mini-dessert sampler — Jau ki Kheer, Khajoor Pethe ka Halwa and Fruit Rabadi).rnP.S. Interactive (special menu designed for them Bay View or Degustation menu) Veg: Rs. 2,250, Non-veg: Rs. 2,250 and Seafood: Rs. 2,750 (all plus taxes).

Well the Masala Bay gets top marks for its ambience no doubt.now regarding the food.pretty good nothing extra-ordinary. Though you should definately try out tandoori salmon. It's a must have. The Arbi tukdas were really out-of-the-world and so were the Mu
