So I have been meaning to try this place for so long and finally I was able to try it last weekend. 80’s vibes and peppy bollywood songs welcomes you with open arms. For a moment you feel like as if you are truely back in 80’s. The classic film posters, old TV box and famous rotating dial telephone brings back all childhood memories in an instant and without hesitation you like to bask in further in those thoughts.
This place from interiors to menu fascinates young generation as well as young at heart . This cafe style menu offers traditional Parsi cuisine. We started our session with kokum as a welcome drink. The tangy taste spikes as you take a first sip, so be careful if you don’t like sour taste. No visit is complete without having a papadum in an Indian restaurant and its a perfect treat while you wait for your order.
It was totally buzzing with people and that was showing how well its already doing. This made us more excited for our food.

In Starters we had Paoo qeema, it was served with soft buns toasted with butter.
In mains we stared with biryani. Being a biryani buff it was delightful to taste such aromatic and flavorful biryani. I am not a meat person but let me tell you moombai and co knows how to cook it perfectly. Meat was not only tender it was so well cooked that I could break it easily with fork. No wonder I will go again for this one.
Nihari here has a quite interesting twist of samosa. Yes meat samosa in Nihari, unique right? The thick gravy with earthy aroma and small bite size samosa as a surprise in there makes the whole dish out standing. As per our server recommendation we had it with small size sheermal roti (bread).
Machli patra a parsi dish will definitely impress your taste buds. I had it before so without any second thought order here and didnt regret a bit. It was as soft and savor as it should be. It was one of the dishes on our table that finishes in minutes.
For drinks we asked for lemo pani and unfortunately it was the onr thing that couldnt impress me much.
We had ordered straw fries while giving our order but seemed they forgot to serve with mains (happens when its a busy hour) but I am impressed with the staff here, the manager came back to us and apologized for it, even we didn’t say anything and asked us to try it. I politely turn down the idea as we were totally full but he insisted to try a little just to have an idea and then he won. I could eat the whole plate if I was not full already, that explains all about it.
In dessert we again had a bandwagon of fun, as per our server suggestion we had kulfi platter the famous one. It was a giant silver plate filled witb crushed ices layered with seasonal fruits cuts and fruits kulfi. Visually appealing platter made us to dig in and relish each kulfi with happy faces. How can I forget about baked gulab jaman. Ah!!! Heavenly in each bite, balanced sweetness and soft as clouds immersed in creamy custard(made with khoya) is a must try here if your are a desi sweets lover.
We ended our exciting dinner on a hot cuppa of Karak Tea that came in desi style and served in small glasses. Loved it!
I would definitely recommend this place for desi food fix located in oppulent property of H hotel but this place will treat you the best without ostantatious
