This small, cheery eatery is tucked away in the narrow side entrance of Colaba’s Hotel Diplomat. Indus serves us above-average fare that is tasty, decently priced, Every starter can be a meal in itself, as it will always be accompanied by Dal Makhni and parathas on the side. Popular for its Chhole Paneer and Smoky-flavoured Chicken Bhatti Kebab and the recently introduced Cheesy Broccoli which is a big hit. A compact menu offers pre-plated Indian fare (tender Kebab Platter, with free Dal and rotis) and Murgh Malai Chops (a pair of succulent, subtly spiced Chicken Breasts with a spicy Corn Salad, buttery Dal Makhni and choice of rotis), amongst others. Tandoori comes out tops here with Achaari Murgh or Galouti Gandheri Kebab. Hot and crisp rotis (especially the Roomali Paratha) and Flambé Gulab Jamun, doused with brandy, deserve special mention. The pre-plated lunch meals are average. A mirrored wall enhances the space of the somewhat crammed dining area, coupled with a backlit bar.

Shades of blue, a back-lit bar, a cramped dining area, mirrored wall and an impressively well-stacked bar is what you’ll find if you do drop in at Hotel Diplomat’s contemporary resto-bar Indus. Enjoy the numerous cocktails (Purple Rain, Black Magic, Island Affair, Fruit Martini) and refreshing mocktails (Virgin Mary, Spice girls, beachy Sunrise). Evenings are a bit more buzzy hence, reservations are advised. A pre-plated Indian fare too.

This place promises the unique taste of thin-crusted pizzas baked in the traditional Italian style — in a wood-fired oven. Add to that garden-fresh vegetables and quality Italian ingredients. The name simply means a mango tree, and that’s what you have at the entrance of the restaurant. Shades of mango, soothing hues and the canny use of glass impart a light and airy ambience to this multi levelled space. Though I find the mezzanine level a bit cramped due to the low ceiling, there’s no doubt that the place is always buzzing with regulars. There’s plenty of choice in pizzas (Plain Cheese to Seafood). I enjoy the lightly done Spaghetti Alio Olio, the Chicken Lasagne and flavoursome Porcini Soup with Truffle Oil; Golden Crisp and Cheesy Jalapeño Poppers make for good starters. Pollo Charmulla Pizza and Pollo Casabianca are some new additions. Chocolate Mousse and Tiramisu are two desserts which you could end your day with.

PS: A mango tree at the entrance sets the tone for the magic to follow. Shades of mango, soothing hues and the canny use of glass impart a light and airy ambience to this multi levelled space.

Nestled in the shadows of a smiling Mangia Fuori, (Mango tree), this contemporary and elegant orange-hued Italian restaurant offers some delicious appetizers. Try the complementary Fried Fussili and assorted dips that go extremely well with any of their famous cocktails that include Heaven of Shots (mixture of three shots) and Ice Bottom Blue. All their drinks are imported and they have all kinds of scotch, whisky and wines including Australian, French, Italian and so on. This Italian restaurant has separate dining and bar areas. Fresh fruit margaritas, martinis and a wine list with 20 choices. Go from Tuesday through Sunday evenings when DJ Vicky spins lounge, retro, house, 80’s and rock in the evening (no Bollywood here, thank goodness).
