One of the oldest restaurant of Mumbai. It served axing puri bhaji and the food seems to be top mark! Even after being in a small lane, it seems to be well spotted by customers and always full!

This is a 160 year old place that serves great meals which are tasty (not necessarily healthy) and so light on pocket. Do try sweet lassi as well.

I always visit this place whenever I go to Mumbai. Its just opposite VT station. Cleanliness is not so good but taste is awesome; hard to find a place on table during peak lunch & dinner time.

Pancham thali consisted of puris, panneer pulao, 5 sabzi/dals, papad, dahi vada, gulab Jamun and lassi. Massive! It's busy, find a seat and squeeze... More

Pancham Pureewala has a nice menu, totally different from any other restaurant in Mumbai. This makes it special. Price is also reasonable. Most important, location is easily accessible, walking distance from CST. A must go place to taste variety of Poore Subbzi.
