Certainly a must-do in Mumbai, this family run restaurant founded in 1923, settled in a Renaissance style building, is a work of art by Scottish architect George Wittet (famous for the “Gateway to India” monument). The charming 93 year old owner Boman Kohinoor will help you make your choice among his timeless Parsi and Iranian cuisine. London Dishoom restaurants found inspiration in those types of cafés, which only a few remain in Mumbai. Plus, you get to Dine below a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Mahatma Gandhi and the Zoroastrian prophet Zarathustra. Unlikely.
ASK: For the Chicken berry pulao (rice made with Iranian barberries) and… The crème caramel.
Lunch only 12-4pm. closed on Sundays.
