“Gateway to Mumbai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Its a must see place once in Bombay. Reminds you of old charm of the city. Besides the Gateway there are a lot of places to see around. Though like most of Mumbai it is a bit too crowded!!
Once there you must try food at Bademia ( strictly Non-veg only ) its just 05 mins walk on a street behind the Taj.

Went there just to see what all the fuss was about. Suitably impressed. If you have time in Mumbai, visit this.

“worth visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

May be vising this place during monsoon played a pivotal role in influencing me to put a 5 star rating to this place but this is one such place in Mumbai where the crowd is energetic and you see happy faces around. Minor Suggestion: Do carry a water bottle when you visit this place.I guess it has its own charm though, what I like the most about it was that the "Taj Hotel" was right next door!

“Worth a look for the hype that sorrounds”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Not sure why it is rated so highly. Extremely busy, crowded and it's definitely not a place to relax.
