Happened to be in CST area on Sunday, went to Aaram, it was closed. Suvidha closed. Every good restaurant closed. As a last chance tried Pancham ...Lo and behold... Ample parking and signature hot plate of Puris and Potato & Pumpkin Bhaji. Bill Rs. 45 only. Great

I didn't realise that I was staying this much close to Pancham Pooriwala... It was best poori - I've ever had. Quality, Cleanliness and Quantity..everything at one place...There was 1 framed cutting hanging on 1 wall - '5 Generation of Quality Poori' so curiously I asked owner how old this shop is: - he smiled and mentioned - 164 years...

There are some places hidden like treasures within tiny lanes of every city all around the world, which has withstood the change of times but still managed to stay the same. Pancham Puriwala is one of those places for Mumbai. Well I had heard a lot about the same from my husband and was certainly waiting to try the famous... More

The ultimate Puriwala in mumbai. It's a must for all visiting CST. Hot puris roll out every minute. Just cannot have a cold one here. The subji served is unique & not available anywhere in mumbai. Have the Alu, Bolpa, and other subjis available. Try the Kadi. Its out of the world. Do not miss out having the Masala Puri.... More

Situated opposite CST station and walking distance from the Fort business district, this place could be ideal for a quick meal. However, the stuff it dishes out is on the heavier side, so not a place to go if you have a presentation after lunch. The retaurant has limited seating (probably 30 people at once), quite cramped at peak hours... More

Try the basic Pur-Sabji dish here. Its awesome. They have many options for different types of subjis with puri. Not a very good dine-in place but the taste of the food compensates it.
