“The Royal Treatment!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Cricket is considered a religion in this part of the world and this year's Pepsi IPL 2013 has created a lot of enthusiasm across the globe and Chris Gayle added fuel to the fire by smashing 175 runs against Pune Warriors the other day. Therefore, I was waiting with bated breath to catch Gayle on action on 27th April 2013. We were preparing ourselves to witness Gayle storm when my cousin wanted to take the family for a dinner outing.
Reluctantly I had to agree to his demand.
Our destination was Pritam's Dhaba which was located on the Mumbai Ahmedabad Road, near Ghorbunder Junction, Sasupada Village. The Dhaba could be approached from both Dahisar and Thane [Ghorbunder Road].
Being on the highway with hills as backdrop, the place offers a wonderful scenic view.
There was a lot of open space to park our car outside the dhaba and two elephants statue with their trunks in triumphant position greeted us at the entrance.
As we entered, there was an open space within the dhaba complex that housed a small pan [is a stimulating, psychoactive preparation of betel leaf combined with areca nut and/or cured tobacco. Indian loves chewing betel leafs after meal to digest their food, other addition is too enhance the flavor of the product] shop.
We needed to climb a few step to enter the restaurant and to my delight, they were beaming Pepsi IPL 2013 match between Mumbai Indian and Royal Challenger Bangalore on a huge screen.
Pritam’s means Pure Punjabi delicacies.
Our choice of food was Mutton Handi [This dish is made in a special clay pot, which is rounded at the bottom and narrow near the mouth called handi or bean pot], Butter Nan that melted in the mouth, Paneer [is a fresh cheese] Tikka, Pineapple Raita [it is a perfect blend of pineapple chunks and creamy yogurt. Made of pineapple /ananas chunks, curd, cumin powder, green chili, coriander leaves, black pepper & salt], Jaljeera drink [is very refreshing drink. Best way to describe Jaljeera, Indian flavored lemonade], Rabri [sweet dish made with dahi (yogurt), flour, and a combination of bajre ki roti] and Jalebi [Jalebis can best be described as funnel cakes].
The seating arrangement was typically Pritam’s speciality (I have visted their Dhaba at Dadar) - swing (wasn’t there at Dadar), Manjaa (traditional woven bed, popular in Punjab) table and chairs.
It was a perfect ambience to watch IPL match with mouthwatering delicacies in a relaxed setting made the evening a memorable one and that too at-the-rate of Rs.1000/- per family of four!
I felt like a king.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Its a nice dhaba on the highway which lets you have a good break form the city restaurants. Food is very average and nothing to write home about and also on the expensive side. Try their lassi which they serve in a steel glass and also the pahadi chicken. The overall ambience is pretty chilled out. The parking guy always annoys me though the way he keeps jumping and showing you directions as what would you do without him ?
