The atmosphere is nothing special about Britannia, except for maybe the quaintness. Don't let this fool you. The owners are both over 90, quick witted and sharp. They love what they do and chances are you'll see one of them in the restaurant. They are both Parsi and they know how to cook! If anything stop by just to order... More

"There is no love greater than the love of eating," declares the menu. Well, good food is certainly an enjoyable part of life, and in this regard Britannia and Co lived up to its well deserved reputation as the best Parsi eating house in Mumbai. We stepped over the threshold to be greeted with an enticing fragrance drifting rom the... More

But I will not have any issue trying it again. I went to this restaurant on my recent trip to Mumbai, based on the recommendation of a coworker. I am happy I went. My server was very helpful considering I didn't know what anything on the menu was. He suggested the Chicken Berry Pulav which is their most popular dish.... More

Britannia is famous for its single trick berry pulav which is truly incredible. The daal with it matches so well and is worth the long wait at lunch times. Wish they always had a supply of mishti doi. The service is nice and friendly and the old world charm of the place adds to pleasure of eating there.

It's at Ballard Estate, a commercial hub of South Mumbai, with our harbour and docks at a stone's throw. Enter here, and you will be greeted by the active nonagenarian Mr Kohinoor, the grand old Irani man of the Café. He will win you over with his charms and flawless English. Humility personified, he will be happy to take your... More

Landed here on a Sat afternoon with a girl friend! Reached at about 12:30 so thankfully didn't have to wait for being seated! Had heard a lot about the famous Berry Pulav so ordered the mutton version, along with the fish patra & lime ginger & raspberry soda. The berry pulav was quite interesting, it had mutton boti as well... More
