Once you are done with this , don't forget to eat Kheer - the specialty. Must visit when you... More

Hi all. I wish to share my experience without being nostalgic as seen with most of the visitors and reviewers of this restaurant. Today, i placed an order for paneer bhurji and chapati( not butter chapati). It was a take-away order. The paneer bhurji was less than okay. The paneer looked separate from the rest of the additions(onion,coriander,tomato). Also,the paneer... More

You have to eat here to experience the great food Very small old restaurant serving on plastic table and chairs with old Bollywood Songs. Haven't come across any other place in Mumbai serving such tasty vegetarian food Be ready to spend some time in queue before you can get a seat

I wouldn't recommend it to tourists, albeit for people staying nearby it's a must visit(if haven't been there already). It's a small place with a huge crowd (mostly students from nearby medical college hostels) waiting to get in. They serve excellent vegetarian fare . Have it to your fill and wash it down with a glass of buttermilk, with absolutely... More
