The spices, the freshness, the culture
Mumbai is bustling with a range of restaurants and eateries to satisfy any type of flavor – so where do you start if you only have a short stay?
Unfortunately, unless you tend to eat 8 full meals a day, it can take you a year to try out every little food joint in the city, but you can try and get a taste of a little bit of each type of cuisine.

For a traditional thali, head to this wonderful vegetarian restaurant, where you will be able to immerse yourself in a platter of cooked vegetable salads and purees in various local spices, served alongside rice or warm bread.
For a fancy date night, try “The Table” – a restaurant with a rather international style which preserves the simplicity of the simplicity and purity of the flavors of fresh, seasonal vegetables and locally-grown meat. The plates are perfect for sharing, which creates a social, fun atmosphere.
For a delicious fast-food snack, head to the popular Ashok and have a vada pav – a bun stuffed with fried potato and green chilies.
