Maybe Tarachand Bhagatram has equally good or better puri and aloo subji than this place. But I doubt it. I had known about this place for years, and never made it there until today. It was surprisingly not crowded, even though it is just a hole in the wall with very limited seating on 2 levels. But grab a seta,... More

Only visited this restaurant after watching NDTV 'Will Travel for food' documentary whilst in the UK that had the presenter, Aneesha Baig sample the food here. Visited at lunch time and had to wait on the street for a table as the restaurant was full of Mumbai men having the lunch from the inexpensive, by western prices, extensive menu. I... More

this is the best place to have the basic indian veg food, without a fuss, just pure and simple taste - ultimate bliss. my favourite: masala puri-extra crisp with potato veg and kadhi. add a couple of papads too. NO COMPETITION.

We saw a few reviews for this and decided to give it a go for lunch as we were touring this area. I'm so glad we did because it felt local and the food was good. Staff and locals couldn't have been any friendlier and a family helped us when the waiter asked us if we wanted the food hot... More

The owners and chefs are in the 5th generation. The restaurant is located at stones throw from CST station. The masala puri and potatoes are just mouth watering. The place can get easily overcrowded owing to its small size. A must visit in South Mumbai.

We went for the 100 Rupee Thali and it was phenomenal! In addition to the wide variety, it's served with this green bread that was absolutely delicious. Even the papad was great. That staff were very friendly, too! I highly recommend it, especially since it's on a vibrant street and at an affordable price.
