Catering to those wary of a "delhi belly", filtered water is used to prepare the chaats, chutneys and paani for the Paani Puri, among other things. Management claims that it is this thoughtfulness which makes it safe for even foreigners to sample their hottest sellers — Paani Puri, Dahi Puri and Ragda Patties. Faluda Kulfi is another dish they are famous for. It all started with the Colaba flagship many years ago, a no-frills (pure vegetarian) house of chaats which, even today, retains a certain old-world charm; with its basic decor and brisk, efficient, no-nonsense serving up of platefuls of Bhel and Paani Puri. Authentic Sindhi khana — Dal Pakwaan for breakfast (only in Colaba), Bhae Masala (lotus root, cooked Sindhi style; again only in Colaba), greasy Koki (Masala Tawa Paratha), and typically thin and aromatic Sindhi Curry with Tuk — leaves your tummy overstuffed and your taste buds still wanting more! Look for a detour through Punjab with the seasonal-only Sarson da Saag and Makki di Roti in the winters (though the Punjabi menu is mediocre). Service could ideally be faster, and their plump, hot Gulab Jamuns seem to have lost that "special something", but overall it's still a great VFM joint that even delivers lunch/dinner packs (veggies, rice, two rotis, Gulab Jamun; Rs.120) throughout the VT area for a minimum Rs.100 order. Paani Puri, Dahi Puri, Ragda Patties and Faluda Kulfi are the most popular items on the menu. Don’t feel like trekking all the way to Colaba? There is a good chance of finding an ever-popular Kailash Parbat chaat counter at your nearest suburban mall!
