Munching in Mumbai Restaurants

A Selection of Mumbai Restaurants:

If you are planning to visit Mumbai either on business or as part of a vacation it is likely that you have been apprehensive about the food you will find there. Seasoned travellers praise the abundant street food which is common fare for the citizens of this huge growing city.

According to this page - Flights to Mumbai on Etihad Airways it is the second largest city in India and is home to more than 14 million people. Situated on the west coast of India, the port is a magnet to people from all over the country, motivated by fame, fortune or the fast pace of life in this chaotic and fascinating city and as such offers an enormous range of indian cuisines.


In addition to the routes to Mumbai, Etihad also offer regular scheduled flights to India from Europe and Abu Dhabi serving airports in 8 cities including New Delhi and Bangalore



If you're not quite ready to try real street food, you can track down the lively and popular Indian chain, Kailash Parbat, which has branches across the city and serves up authentic Mumbai classics in slightly more sanitised surroundings – including the delicious pav bhaji (kind of toasted buns with a buttery vegetable mash) and ragda pattice (crisp potato cakes with chickpeas).



Moving up the price ladder, at the high end of the market Trishna is a small but well-respected restaurant tucked away along a narrow lane in the Kala Ghoda area of the city, where you might end up if you're visiting the district's art galleries. Trishna is considered by some food experts to be one of the finest seafood restaurants in the world, and is well known for its signature crab dish with garlic butter. It gets some pretty rave reviews, so for seafood lovers it's worth the splurge.

To feel like royalty, there's nowhere quite like the Taj Mahal Palace. It has played host to many Maharajas and Princes, and the staff there are so smart they could easily leave you feeling under-dressed even when you're donning all your finery. The hotel is a tourist attraction in itself, and something every tourist has to see and photograph. The restaurant is listed as Tripadvisor's number one in Mumbai, although it actually houses several different eateries under one roof – from the casual daytime poolside restaurant, Shamiana, and the semi-formal Masala Kraft Indian restaurant, to real 'fine dining' at the very formal Zodiac Grill, which dishes up creative French cuisine

  1. Hi Alison.
    Many Indian friends told me, when you go to India, don't go for the street food. It might get you sick. Thanks for the great article.
    Look like you love to travel.., me too....
    See you around.

  2. I love extreme street food and it's always tempting to try. If I have the chance to go there I’ll definitely see it for myself.

  3. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.
