“Quaint ambiance, flavorful food, even if a little too steep....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The food is truly flavorful and well presented, albeit a little expensive...
The portions could have been a bit more substantial, but, in the end it all balances because of the truly fine culinary experience... definitely a 'must try' at least once...

“Horrible food for a very nice venue!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Ambience is very nice but we tried many dishes and all of them were pathetic. What an anticlimax for a lovely place! Place is super overpriced for the kind of food they serve!

“Overrated!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I was suggested this restaurant as a must visit but was put off mainly because it's in a great location and the earlier restaurant / joint that existed there was far better.
I have eaten better food then what they served there. The drinks were ok.
Certain basics that they can definitely correct -
Have ashtrays if you have a smoking area.
It's anyway hot and humid in mumbai and its great that you are displaying art, but keep the focus lamps away from humans seating area.
Your pastry chef is really good!
Tie the seats to the chairs, they come off when you slide in and out.
Menu knowledge for the waiters pls.

“Yummy food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

The best food in the whole of Mumbai! The chef certainly has created a fine menu and all dishes have their own special touch. The service was so so friendly and attentive. A little pricey but a great get away to treat yourself.

“Fine dining off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

There is a distinct lack of quality fine-dining places in Mumbai outside of the Starred hotels. Bungalow 9 came as a welcome addition to the Mumbai food scene. There is ample variety of gastronomic options, from starters till desserts. The ambience is quite charming, and the place is definitely worth visiting and sitting outside in the cooler months. Some of combinations in the menu seemed questionable on paper, but came together very well on the plate and were pleasing to the palate.

Do try the daily specials - they are usually worthy of the title.

Pricing is on the higher side, but the place still beats some more expensive starred hotel restaurants when it comes to quality of the food.
