It tasted like they used ketchup in their chicken biryani. It was the weirdest biryani I've ever had.

Mumbai Rosai is primarily a take-out restaurant; however, the small intimate dining room has been beautifully renovated and is quite pleasant. The menu is limited, but more than adequate to satisfy any taste. My wife and I have dined at Mumbai Rosai at least a dozen times. The food is simply superb. We both love authentic Indian cuisine and haven't... More

The place is a hole in the walk. In fact, there really is a hole in the wall (actually, it's the remainder of a bank vault with the door's having been removed and only the stainless steel frame remaining). However, if you look past the lack of ambiance the foodie really wonderful. The owner/chef -- well, Mr. Personality he is... More

Found this small establishment based on other reviews. We where not disappointed. Small one man show at the time. Our cook, waiter, and dishwasher treated us to a fabulous Indian meal cooked fresh to order. Very attentive to us while he manned the phones, counter, and cooking. If I didn't live 300 miles away from this restaurant it would be... More

We stopped in for the first time last night, not really knowing what to expect. My husband is from the UK where Indian food is the most popular ethnic take out food, and it is excellent there. We have been hard pressed to find as good here in the US. However, we were absolutely delighted with the choice we made.... More

We were coming back from a movie when we craved for Indian food. Based on reviews on Google we picked this one. It was snowing heavily and we had a kid amidst ourselves. Anyways we finally reached the place and thats when the thing started. The restaurant was empty and the guy who was inside was too rude to talk.... More

This is really more of a takeout place with a few eat-in tables. The owner is very involved, and very interested in seeing his customers happy. I am not a fan of Indian food, but my dinner was high quality. Everyone else I dined with are big fans of Indian cuisine and they all raved that it was the best... More

This place had a home flavor for Indian food. Tried Chicken Tikka masala and lunch box. Cost effective. Awesome taste. Mango lassi is must. Owner tries new desserts as well. Overall very good experience.
