As we reached here we realized it was full to the brim at 1 pm. Crowd was a mix of local people and tourists.

The restaurant was in two parts – a large dining hall near the entry and a smaller air conditioned dining room inside.

Men, pls pee on the road!!!

In one corner there was a counter for selling packed food made by them.

The menu card was a long list of items, no description, few pictures. The width of offering was commendable & way beyond the usual.

The guy serving us was very good. He made some good recommendations.

  1. Lovely review. It looks like your move to Mumbai has opened up a whole new geography of food places!! Good goings!

    BTW, in your transition to the new format, the review for ‘Parsi Dhaba’ from Feb 12 got missed out, and wondering if you could fix that?
