The best part is they have not changed !!!! The same short and sweet menu, same lovely people, same European style furniture and the same taste. You never go wrong when you are at Britannia & Co. The berry pulav, for me is the star of the menu. Salli boti which is made in the authentic way is another favorite.... More

The best restaurant in Mumbai-- and it's not even close. The place is a legend in every way. The food is one of a kind-- amazing, unique, and yes, made in huge quantities, but yet still incredible. The building is PURE old Bombay, like a living snapshot of bygone days. Reading some of these reviews, my heart breaks to hear... More

One of the oldest classy place to hang out for a lazy lunch. However, due to long queues, you may actually not have a lazy lunch. A descent and nice place with authentic taste, comes with a little higher cost.

Classic Parsi restaurant in SoBo that is more than 90years old and is an institution by itself! Must try--the yummilicious Iranian Berry Pulao, and Mutton Sali Boti. Have been there twice already and wouldn't mind going back again. However the owner Mr. Boman Irani has a clear fascination to talk to foreigners which after a point is quite hilarious. But... More

Britannia & Co. transports you into an era of Colonial India, with its heavily British and Irani inspired decor, which is quite old world with no traces of the fine dining setup commonly found today. The restaurant is located in the Ballard estate area, right between the commercial establishments housing large banks, law firms and other corporates. Therefore, on a... More

Luckily happened to be around Fort area at the right time and on the right day to sneak into this elusive restaurant without any waiting queue. The decor is very Parsi with heavy British and Irani influences. The service is lightening quick and the waiter was very courteous and helpful to us. We ordered: Raspberry Soda - It's like drinking... More

I had heard the legend of Britannia and Co over many years; I had read reviews and articles of the same. Finally this year, on the eve of the Diwali festival, after having finished one of the ever so pleasing Heritage walks, i headed straight to tick off one of my resolutions of this year- Lunch at Britannia! The checkered... More

If you're looking for a bit of old world anglophilia, then come to Britannia & Co. and have a quack at the Bombay Duck. You walk into a high ceilinged hall laden with recent pictures of the duke and duchess of Cambridge, the queen and an assortment of other royal personalities (who have at some point visited this Bombay institution)....
