Best Indian food in town. We had our separate room. A set menu. The food tasted delicious and the way it was served was a pleasure for the eye. The room decorations were in traditional style without overdoing it.

Just as you take a trip down Bandra bandstand and go past homes of the who's who in Bollywood, the Taj Lands End stands regal, marking an important geographical point in Bombay's illustrious landscape. Where land ends and the sea begins, the Arabian Sea is in full view right there and your hunger is already well satiated. Add to it... More

A truly wonderful indulgence for someone who enjoys good Indian food. A wide variety of items in the menu for vegetarians. The quality of food and ingredients was rich and fresh. A fantastic place to celebrate an occasion.

Located at the magnificent Taj Land's End, Masala Bay is an equivalent of ITC's Peshawari. The ambiance and service is fine and not much to write about. Do try the Dal Makhani and Garlic Naan. Both were one of the best that I've ever tasted. They also serve some great paan after the meals. If North Indian Food is on... More

The service is friendly but the food could be better. The choices are limited. The staff should be better informed about the dishes and the menus should explain the preparations better. It is nice to see the kitchen through the glass partition but one could get uncomfortable seeing the chefs occasionally tasting the sauces.

While a little on the pricey side, this was definitely one of our favorite meals in India. Delicious!

This place is pretty pricey, but what else would you expect from a 5 star hotel in Mumbai. The food was good, but just too heavy and rich. We couldn't even finish one dish between the two of us! Well one plus would be that it is frequented by bollywood celebrities.
