Our city’s first dedicated Parsi restaurant, situated in a lane just off Horniman Circle, made a brilliant start fourteen years ago, but now disappoints. Jimmy Boy’s high-ceilinged, wooden-beam interiors are still the same (TV, wall clock and old chandelier), but the quality of food has taken a nosedive. Lagan nu Bhonu, served in a banana leaf on a plate (non-veg Rs. 650; veg Rs. 450; 10-15 per cent more in the AC section) struggles. Saas ni Machhi doesn’t make the mark, while Chicken Sali, Kid Gosht, Dhansak and Mutton Pulao limp even further behind. They also have Patra ni Machhi, Jerdaloo Chicken, Dhun Dal Patia and Lagan nu Custard. North Indian Tandoori fare barely makes the grade. They’ve introduced Chicken and Mutton Berry Pulao and got in a new bakery counter (brownie, Apple Pie, et al).

This is an awesome place for parsi food and one of the best in the city..
We had a lagan nu bhonu and the rest of the restaurant was also packed with europeans and Japenese customes cherishing the other parsi delecacies...
The bakery counter had lot of variety...
Thanks Jimmy boy
