Located at the Marco Polo Hotel, This ‘to be famous’ restaurant has been there for quite a long time but its recent renovation is something which made it the talk of the town.
Well, Mumbai is chaotic, exciting, dreamy and overwhelming, all at the same time and just like Mumbai, this café + resto bar is also the same! Not only it shares the same name but also the vibe through its look and feel and of course, food.
It has the Mumbai vibe to it and for anyone staying abroad, this is nostalgia.
Right from their painting to Mumbai-inspired interiors, every bit of this place will make you walk down the memory lane to the city of dreams – Mumbai.
And if you haven’t been to Mumbai, then there’s a lot you can experience here.
Mumbai city has a glamorous side to it, after all, it’s home to Bollywood and this café is nothing less than that. Good food, good music and good vibe, they have it all.
This café is chic, elegant and yet grounded to its roots in terms of taste. Right from the chaat counter to the BMC Cutting Chai, every part of this café works in its favour! Well, it not only has a bar counter but also LIVE Bands performing six days a week. Doesn’t this place cater to all your needs?
Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city, a mix of everything as they imbibe the culture and traditions of everyone and in the same manner, this café gives roof to some of the best dishes all around India and what will catch your eye is their desi fusion!
Chicken Tikka Naan Keesh – So the concept is pretty simple where you get naan loaded with chicken tikka and cheese as the name suggests making it a ‘desi pizza’ and this dish is definitely worth a try!
Paneer Tikka – The paneer is fresh, soft, perfectly spiced and simply melts in your mouth! It’s a perfect treat for vegetarians.
Chicken Tikka – Well, this dish can rarely go wrong and especially with that killer presentation which simply adds to the charm of the dish. The flawlessly spiced pieces of chicken marinated in spices and yogurt that is then baked in a tandoor oven is cooked to perfection.
Bailey’s rose Milkmaid Gola – Now that’s something unusual and probably the best way to have a Gola, mixed with Bailey’s.
Also, we were served their authentic Gola, a drink called ‘memsaab’ and pineapple juice to accompany with food!
Fish and Chips – Nothing quite hits the spot like the traditional fish and chips. This amazing Fish and chips consisting of fried battered fish and hot potato chips is nothing but magic to your taste buds. It’s an early example of culinary fusion. The fish is expertly cooked in a light batter and served with a stack of chunky chips.
Kheema Cutlet – The juicy succulent minced meat wrapped in lacy breaded crumbs, crunchy and crisp from outside, hot and spicy from inside is a perfect starter for all meat lovers out there.
Eggplant on toast – This is another vegetarian starter which one must definitely try. The sour cream on top gives a very creamy texture to the eggplant which is rested on a crunchy toast.
Prawn Biryani – This biryani itself has the essence, the aroma and the taste that can trigger anyone’s taste buds. If you are a biryani fan, you simply have to try this out. This Prawn Biryani is a delicious savory rice dish that’s loaded with spicy marinated prawns, caramelized onions, and flavorful saffron rice. Craving?
Dal Makhani with Naan – Well, dal has always been a comfort food, but when we think of slow cooked creamy Dal Makhani, it’s in a different league of its own. We really loved the creamy texture of the dal makhani and this dish is a ‘must have’ which will remind you of ‘maa ke haath ka khana’.
Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan – This creamy, spiced curry made with tomato and chunks of roasted marinated chicken is a longtime favorite of any food lover. The combination of this dish with naan is heavenly.
Gajarela Truffles – This completely swept my heart away! What an amazing way to end such a fabulous meal. The incredible gajar ka halwa wrapped in that white chocolate ball is to simply die for and the presentation is simply magnificent.
BMC Cutting Chai – Mumbaikars have always loved their tea, whether it’s from the kitchen at home or a modest tapri by the side of the road. So at Bombay to Mumbai cafe, the classic chai makes a trendy comeback and this one is simply the best we had so far.
Overall we had an amazing time and the café ensured to make our dining experience really memorable by serving us such amazing food and I advise everyone from sensibly all age groups to visit this place as it has something stored for all.
