Filter coffee... More

With the more famous and well known Udipi restaurants always going full every Sunday, Arya Bhavan is a smaller and less well known establishment where you can get the classic South Indian meal without waiting for a table for an hour. The menu is similar to what you might see elsewhere. The sheera is hands down the best dish on... More

This is the latest craze to hit the streets of Matunga. The serpentine queue outside this restaurant are a vindication of this statement. Unlike other old-generation restaurants who serve purely South India fare which is a mix of snacks and some rice preparations, Arya Bhavan has added some popular street food items on its menu. They also serve some dishes... More

Tucked away near Matunga Station is Arya Bhavan, managed by the famous South Indian food caterers, Muthuswamy. It is a tiny place with tight pace between tables. You go to this place to enjoy good South Indian food. Period. I started with steam idli. It is a simple dish, but a true test of a good South Indian restaurant. The... More

Foe me, this is like a pilgrimage. I go there one a month, sometimes with family, sometimes friends. I am the common factor. Its owned and operated by the great Muthuswamy, one of Mumbais great chefs and caterers . I am predictable in my behaviour. I always start with a south indian coffee. Always. The waiter "mixes" the coffee between... More
