3 Nights in Mumbai

In February I'll be visiting a few cities in India with my wife and am looking for some dining tips from chowhounders!

I'll start a thread for each location to keep things clean and more helpful for thers too. The city list is: Mumbai, Jodhpur, New Delhi and Jaipur.

To give some idea of what we're after, a mix of cheap and more up-market places would be best - variety is good.

OK, first up is Mumbai!

I've previousy spent a lot of time in Mumbai on business and have visited several good, cheap restaurants in and around Navi Mumbai, Airoli and Vihkroli - but this is play, not work., and we'll be staying at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower hotel right across from the Gateway of India.

Restaurants in or around the area (Apollo Bandar, Nariman Point etc) would be ideal.

So far promising leads are Samrat on Jamshedji Tata Road (for thali-style) and Moti Mahal Delux at Nariman Point - any opinions on these or alternative suggestions?

  1. Wow, nothing :( I'm really surprised there isn't more in this board about India, especially somewhere like Mumbai :(

    Anyone eaten at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower? What are the food and prices like?

      I was recently in Mumbai for a weekend. We had high tea at the Taj beside the Gateway of India,I believe it cost about 900 rupees per person. It was a very enjoyable experience. We had breakfast at Moshe's which is also close by, casual, decent food and a break from Indian food. Leopold's is an expat/tourist faviourite, atmosphere was nice but food was just average. Indigo is a see and be seen kind of place just off Colaba causeway, what little we tasted was good but we hardly ate because we were still full from tea at the Taj. Enjoy your stay in Mumbai!

          Thanks adhish :)

          Do you have any more info on these places (e.g. the food and prices)?

          1. re: GordonS

            I'm not adhish, but I did go to some of the places. I don't remember the exact prices, but Cafe Leopold and Cafe Mondegar are reasonably priced. Indigo was one of the more expensive places we visited, I believe cocktails were in the 400 rupee range, appetizers in the 500 rupee range, and mains maybe in the 1000 rupee range, approximately.
