Well depend upon what you want to eat!

Recently I have been to a Modern Hindu Hotel near Sterling, VT. I had good South Indian Thali over there. Food and hygiene were the best. And they are offering food in banana leaf.

Off DN Road,in those crowdy areas,there are few restaurants who offer good food.Kelkar on DN road is good(I think they are still in a process of renewing it).Balwaas behind HSBC building offers authentic Biryani non vege dishes.

Mumbai is too big a place to name sinle Join. Go to in-orbit mall and you can have large variety of food there.

Hmmm I am not interested in malls, want to know about speciality joints, like places famous for kababs, famous for deserts etc etc etc etc... places where you actually relish food..

My experience with Bombay is around 10 years old and so I may be outdated. I don't recollect the names of all but I remember the locations. For Biryani, it would be Bade Miyan near Gateway. For wada paav, there was one stall tucked away at the corner outside Dadar(W) station. For South Indian Thalis, a restaurant on Matunga(E) station. And for Indo-Chinese, I liked Jimmy's Kitchen on Veronica Road off Hill Road, Bandra(W). For my homestyle Goan cuisine, there was one place on Dadar(W) and also another one in Bandra(E). And when I visited Bombay in 2001, there was another Goan restaurant in Vile Parle(E). And the good ol' Maska paav(or chai?, I don't remember), the Parsi restaurants near Churchgate/VT station.

If you are in to Fish / Sea Food,

Tendulakar's is not a bad idea.

(Little bit expensive. but hey, it costs to eat at Sachin's place).

Gajali..The name rings a bell. Are you sure this place does not serve non-vegetarian food? I could have sworn that I had my favourites (fish curry and fried fish). Maybe I ate at a different restaurant.

Well I am afraid this might be bit outdated.. as it has been a long time since I lived in Mumbai..
But for hardcore non veg stuff: Bade Miya behaind Taj near Gateway. Just next to bade miya.. there is (was ??) bagdadi.. the hygene is not good.. but rule of thumb is taste is inversly proportional to hygene.. ;-) Thats why bhelpuri, panipuri tastes best on "chowpaty" :-)
In Fort area there are number of restaurants.. Sandwich stall on Dalal Street corner is very famous.. Mahesh Lunch home for sea food.. (esp. Surmai and neer dosa combo!) Irani Restaurant near fountain for omlets, bheja fry etc..
Near marin lines sea face, pizzeria for fresh pizza.. used to be chaneel V base in 90s...
Canon pavbhaji near VT.. Sardarji's paavbhaji in Taddev.. Shrikrishna wadapav in dadar.. typical "Maharastrian brahmni misal" in aswad near shivaji park dadar.. Road side franki near Shivaji park.. Gypsi/ Nebula near shivaji park.. bengali style fish in only fish near shivaji park..
Chicken Biryani in Lucky restaurant in bandra west.. natural's ice cream in Juhu, parle east, mahim.. Parle Tilak Vidyalaya's (its a school in vile Parle) wadapav.. ( No prize in guessing my school ;-) ) Ramkrishna near parle station (east) Shivsagar in Parle (east) for paavbhaji/ faluda..
list is endless... You go to khaugalli and you will get anything you want.. If you are mainly interested in ambience.. want to go on a date with someone.. (and if he is sponsoring..;-) ) then coffee shops of five stars near Juhu..

Ah.. Mumbai...

Hie guys!!

Thanks for all the replies!! I am sorry to say that I dint try any place from the suggestions because I stay in Andheri and the places mentioned were far from my place and lots of people don�t even know the names of the restaurants they are recommending!!! I have been to Bombay Blues and Copper Chimney by the way and I liked them both. One of my personnel favorites is Pop-Tates near Seven Bungalows Andheri(W)!! Awesome food which is different from other places!

Enjoy!

Kobe's Sizzler for sizzlers.
NewYork-NewYork for Lebanese, Italian, Mexican food etc. Both of them near Marine Drive.

Jains and Paryushan...

Did anyone notice that the thread has been dead since a few months.

Anyway, Nostalgia Time strikes.

I'll take this from the Southern tip of Bombay and move up North...

We were a group of bawas, fresh out of college. Saturday evenings were dinner from the roadside Chinese carts at Nariman Pt. after a few rounds of ThumsUp (yeah, no Coke and Pepsi in those days) and Rum. Bade Miya was our hot favourite then as well.

If we were out with the babes, Cafe Mondegar on Colaba (for the drinking types) or Fountain Restaurant at fountain for sizzlers and steaks.

There is a really good chinese joint just off Churchgate called Chopsticks which was still great when I checked it out a year ago.

And then, Mahesh Lunch Home near Horniman Circle for fantastic sea food.

During the Ramzan days, we would go to Mohammed Ali Road at one AM and just freak out on the kebabs and sevaiya.

The first place I went out to with my fiance after we were engaged was Bombay Brasserie, Worli. Nine years on, we still ensure a visit there every time we are in Bombay. Its now called Copper Chimney. The lunch buffet is fantastic value.

Further north, lassi at Kailash near Dadar Station.

The softest idlis and the best coconut chutney in town are in a little joint on the island opposite Ruia College (was it called Mani's, my memory fades) and absolutely khatarnak pani-puri on the roadside.

Steaks at Kobe near Bandra.
A good fusion veggie restaurant called Vrindavan just off Khar (W) station.

Biryani at that-restaurant-whose-name-I-cannot-remember outside Andheri station.

These days, its "mom-made" food whenever I am back home. I think she bottles up her passion for cooking for 350 days and then unleashes it on me for the 15 days a year that I am in Bombay. No complaints there!

So, does anyone care to do a similar list for Bangalore ? Pune, anyone ?

Fish lovers among you...

Restaurant named "Modern" near Sion station. The cuisine is mix of south-west of Maharashtra ans coastal karnataka(Konkani).
1) Chimbori(Crab) masala with neer dosa.
2) Paplet masala with neer dosa.
3) Prwans Biryani(best ever).

Man, I wish, I could marry daughter of restaurant's "Bawarchi".

Strongly recommended for those seeking great taste at affordable price, Service and ambience is mediocre though.

BTW, I heard about a fish restaurant serving unlimited fish for 500 Rs. Forgot the name.Guess it is located somewhere in Worli.

Deciding the best eating joint in Mumbai is a tricky job guys as you all there are loads of amazing places to hog on! But I personally like Crepe Station in Andheri west for the reason that their food quality is tremendous and you get to try out many variant like Italian, continental and of course… Indian. I am not sure whether they serve hard drinks or not… but it doesn’t matters to me as when I go out to dine, I am only interested in food!
