Pancham purée walk near CST station at VT offers some lip smacking puris with slow Bhaji alongwith other North Indian fast food. While the food is delicious, the ambience may not appear that good and personally prefer to pack/ take away food

Had some dal puri. It was delivered promptly and tasted good, at a bargain price. Would recommend it to any traveller looking for tasty and cheap vegetarian food.

While the food itself is just above par what really makes this place popular is the price point at which it manages to dish out its Thais, Poori Chole or Aalu, Lassi, etc. The place is neat and the taste is consistent.

It's a small restaurant close to VT with a lot of space crunch But then I never expected anything more than that! The food was tasty and thali had sufficient items! Quite economical! A normal thali costing 60 bucks and a special one costing 80 bucks! It would be a crime to expect anything more from the restaurant at that... More

Just visited PP yesterday and had thali at this place. The thali was good and had masala poories which was filling. Overall the service and food was good. If you have car then difficult to find parking. Its just near CST station /GPO. Rates are also very cheap and you get what you pay for.

Visited this outlet which is near to CST railway station by lanes. After biting the hype of pancham puriwala finally decided to visit for lunch. Place was crowded and had to wait for 15-20 minutes to get a seat. Service was fast. Food is not upto hype. Taste is pretty okay just typical Uttar Pradesh kind of. Puri were on... More

This is a very ordinary & small vegetarian restaurant, operating since decades in the Fort area of Bombay, India. It is a bit of a messy place ! But they are famous for their Choley Pooris & aloo pooris - which are quite delicious. They have a wide range of vegetarian snacks & dishes, along with Thaali meals too. All... More

This restaurant serves the poori bhaaji and is typical UP cuisine if you are looking for something fried ,heavy served with sabji made of potato then this is the place for you but if you dont relish fried food then stay away.
