Dussehra Thali

Meant for hardcore Gujju food, everything is sweet, including Kachoris. Place is filthy and servers are wearing uniform splattered with food! I am surely not coming back. IT is not even economical, we paid 450/- per thali and could not remember a single item for its taste, good or bad. So very... read more

Not at all worth it. They used to b v good, but their standard has dropped down now. I would prefer to eat in an udipi restaurant then spending so much and eat bombay bhaji and bread pizza.

I've Been Having Gujarati Thaalis At Many Other Thaali Restaurants In Mumbai Since Past 10 Years. This Time I Tried Golden Star And Trust Me The Experience Was The Best Than Ever. Now, I Think The Other Places Where I Used To Visit Have Been Overrated In All Terms. Golden Star Gives You Pure Gujarati And Rajasthani Food Taste. A... More

Very good vegetarian Thali restaurant. Staff welcome you with warm heart. They keep on serving until you say know - in fact managers encourage you - tell you no need to hurry. Take a break etc etc. they have different menu each day if the week. Even if you are non vegetarian, thus place is still worth trying.

The place is specially for all the non vegetarians who think that vegetarians only survive on paneer. GST offers a wide spread of Rajasthani and Gujarati dishes. The service is absolutely efficient as the servers, with warmth, ask you to try different dishes or add a dash of ghee on your rotis. Etc. The menu is welcomingly different on every... More

This place is owned by experienced professionals in Thali business that welcome and treat you really well at restaurant. I live in Charni Road and it is not very easy to find such good places to dine in. We often come here when our parents are travelling to get food as good as home and a huge amount of variety!

We arrived one hot afternoon at this place for lunch with two hungry and irritated kids with us. We walk in to see the place completely filled with some uniformed employees having their thalis. No staff bothered to talk to us and figure out our needs. we struggled our way to the cash counter where their manager was standing. Till... More

Fantastic Thali-restaurant, one of my favorites in Mumbai with unlimited food service. A bit expensive though.
