With its latest branch in R Mall, Thane's Village Soul of India (at dinner only) is coming alive through nautanki, Rajasthani Maand singers, dance troupes, Kutchi ghodis, and bhangra performances. Sit on a traditional charpoy or princely divan. At the Kandivali branch, trucks and auto-rickshaws have been imaginatively converted into dining tables. You can expect a feast of six food-chowkis from appetizers and chaats to main course dishes, desserts and unlimited beverages at this one-ticket restaurant. Some specialities are Dal Baati Choorma, Amritsari Chhole, Masala Khichdi, Surti Kadhi, Village Special Dosa. The ever-changing menu's staple favourites are Rajasthani and Gujarati delicacies. Buffet Lunches (Mon–Fri: Rs.262; Sat&Sun: Rs.314) and Dinner (Mon–Fri: Rs.314) offer standard (but tasty) fare without any gourmet flourishes. Please note, meals here are strictly a buffet affair.rnP.S. Enjoy their puppet and dandiya shows too.rn

All the Café Mangiis have earthen tones and warm-wooden interiors which give them a neighbourhood “been around for a long time“ kind of feel. One thing I notice is the homestyle flavour in all its popular soups, salads and pastas. It prides itself for its authentic hand crafted Napolitana thin-crust pizzas, cooked in traditional brick oven, fired with mango and rubber wood. A must-have here, try any of the popular picks — Margarita, Quattro Formaggio, Mediterranean or Cajun Chicken. As far as pasta is concerned, Spaghetti, Linguine, Penne and Fusilli are all on the menu. Order their Risotto (cooked in champagne with asparagus and porcini mushroom) and Chicken Mangii, the stuffed chicken breast. Coming to the deserts, the Philadelphia Baked Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote was above average, but I wasn’t terribly impressed with Crème Brûlée and Tiramisu. Mangii has been spreading its wings in Mumbai and there are as many as four Mangis now in the city.

Though its bar is popular, it is mainly the casual Italian fare that draws the regulars here. Café Mangii’s fresh fruit cocktails (`550–700+taxes), Fresh Fruit Margaritas, flavoured caipiroskas and frozen margaritas make them different. It all started off with a mango tree… when Mangii Ferra set up in Vile Parle several years ago. It was one of the first to serve wood-fired pizzas this side of the town, which, by now, are their USP (try the Pepperoni ‘n’ Cajun Chicken Pizzas). Ever since then, Mangii’s tribe has been increasing. First Khar and more recently, Powai. Perch yourself at the full-fledged bar and order their exotic caipiroskas (ask the bartender about their “twists” like the Muddy Mojito which is very popular) or fire up with the Spicy Lady (basil, cointreau, vodka, and jalapeño) or Currant Affair (black currants, cranberry juice and vodka with exotic garnish served in a chilled glass) to keep the action fresh and exciting. Old ad posters, wooden tones and cushioned furniture give the place a homely feel. More sedate wine cocktails (order the special sangria) and straight options like beer, whisky, vodka are available. The friendly and courteous staff is always happy to suggest wines (from dense to fruity they have them all — Pinot Noir, Hardy, Yellowtail and Bohemia — Red, White and Sizzling) that go well with whatever you’ve ordered.
