Must tries are the Saali Boti and the Chicken Berry Pulao. Some of the other items such as the Rotis are nothing noteworthy..Still feel that Britannia Cafe is better!

Very nice & Authentic Dhanshak. Amazing to eat with Chapatis / Brun Pav & Sago Wafers. One of the few places where you get Raspberry & Ice cream Soda. Great combination.

This was the only time I tried Parsi food. I cannot comment on the authenticity of it but the food in itself was simply delicious. The dessert was just rightly sweet, perfectly balanced suiting my taste. The location is nice too. I would surely visit it again in my next trip to Mumbai.

I am a foodie and love Parsi delicacies so much. Recently I went to Jimmy Boy and really loved the food. People who love Parsi food should try this place. Patraa Fish, Salli Boti and Caramel Custard is mouth watering.

There are vendors selling wares off the street in front of the Hermes & Louboutin stores. Just on the other side of the block is Jimmy Boy. Our first attempt to get there had us running in the hot sticky city in circles and when we finally arrived at 4pm, they just closed to prep for dinner service. The next... More

Ambiance: A quaint little restaurant, now renovated but still retains the old charm. The grandfather clock is my favorite. The upper storey is air conditioned. There is a take away counter on the other side and the baked goodies (pastries, cakes, mousses) greet you as soon as you enter. So you are actually thinking of what dessert you'll order even...
