Levo Restaurant & Lounge #1

Ooooh! La! La! Levo! Here it is, Andheri's amazing month old ...Levo. The 20,000 sq ft restaurant marks one of the most significant openings of this year. It is by sheer chance, that I drop by here for a totally impromptu, unplanned visit and that further adds to my delight. My dinner companions are equally inspiring...articulate, exuberant, multi...more»

Yauatcha #2

Here's to dimsum, the great seducer. Its wow never wavers. It liberates us from culinary monogamy, it permits us to wander from a crescent of chicken to a bauble of beef, to have a crunchy affair and to graze away with no commitments whatsoever. This Chinese tradition of nibbling on dimsum and drinking tea is called "Yum cha" and over eight years a...more»

Lotus Cafe #3

“Give us this day our daily buffet” should be the catchline of this café. Awarded the “Best 24-hour Coffee Shop (North Mumbai)” by the Times Food Guide, this one is worth a visit for its sprawling and lavish buffets (where 80 per cent of the food is cooked à la minute). Large glass walls give you a spectacular ocean view, along with the l...more»

Vista #4

A great Bollywood favourite. Also a place for families with kids. It benefits as it is well-located between North and South Mumbai. Buffets take centre stage at the Taj Land’s End gleaming 24-hour coffee shop. The Raw Bar features many imported delicacies such as Alaskan Crab Claw, Prosciutto St Danielle, Iberico Ham, and Foie Gras. Plump dim sum...more»

Spices #5

Thai food buffs pop in to JW Marriott’s sprawling Pan-Asian restaurant. As the book goes to press, I drop by for a meal, to find the talented new Thai Chef Surya Bhusirimongkhon Chai (ex Blue Elephant) doing his wok magic. The large wooden-floored restaurant also has a Teppan bar and a sushi bar. They have discontinued the Chinese menu... zero in...more»

South Of Vindhyas #6

Wash your hands in rose water (brought to your table), and begin your meal at this picturesque "Peninsular Cuisine" (drawn from four different states in the region to the south of the Vindhyas) restaurant right next to the domestic airport and you'll feel like you’re walking into a traditional Mangalorean estate home with high ceiling et al. Enjo...more»

Mainland China #7

India's biggest Chinese restaurant chain just got bigger! Mainland China has just added two more branches to Mumbai this past year. The flagship branch located in Saki Naka (the last place you'd think to go for an authentic Chinese meal!) set up nearly two decades ago continues to be my favourite. The Andheri branch is the swankiest of them all. He...more»

The Oriental Blossom #8

A must visit. Popular as ever, with plenty of Chinese and Korean guests (a sure sign of authenticity), Hotel Marine Plaza’s first-floored restaurant is unquestionably one of the city’s finer destinations for Oriental cuisine. I make a regular meal of the superb and VFM Chimney Soup, a leisurely meal for two, nourishing and delicious, it serves ...more»

Trattoria #9

“Homely, cosy, warm” defines the revamped, wooden-floored Trattoria (thank heavens that airport coffee shop décor is gone). A wine wall, plates on walls and a pleasant, comfy ambience is where Executive Chef Ananda Solomon’s delicious and wholesome Italian fare is served. The entire elaborate menu is served 24/7. Ask any South Mumbai nightbi...more»
