Five years ago when I visited this restaurant, I enjoyed the food a lot. Those memories made me go back this time I was in Mumbai. However, I found the food to be too oily. We ordered mutton cutlets, mutton berry pulao and caramel custard. The custard was excellent, the pulao was good (though too oily) and the cutlets were... More

You come to this restaurant for two things - to meet the 95 year old owner and hear him talk about how much he loves The Queen. He has letters from her and photos of her and now even had a photo of himself with Will & Kate, after their recent visit. The other reason is to try the Barberry... More

Having read so much about this Mumbai institution I was determined to find it and eat here on my recent trip to South Mumbai. The food was amazing (berry pulao) but more importantly the owner is amazing. At 95 years old he potters around the restaurant telling stories and showing laminates of famous people he has met. Including Prince William... More

We discovered this restaurant by sheer chance. It was just a minute or two walk from our hotel, but what a delightful find! Everything was so tasty, and the waiter very helpful in choosing from the menu. Thoroughly recommended!

It's one of the oldest Parsi restaurant in Mumbai run by the owner family. The spread is limited, but the food is good. It's packed during lunch hours being close of business areas. Do try the beri pulao.

Eating here is one of my favourite memories of Mumbai. The delightful owner of Britannia and co came over to speak to us a number of times and we very much enjoyed his company. The food was very tasty also, loved the Paneer berry pulav. We ordered one each and they were generous portions so we were stuffed by the... More

The best Parsi food at a restaurant. Berry Pulao is unique. Fish is excellent. Dhansak is classic. Wish i was there now :)

You're not visiting Britannia & Co. to be greeted cordially - because you wouldn't be greeted cordially. You're visiting for the food that they offer and it is hands-down the best Parsi food that you can have in Mumbai. The chicken berry pulao and the melt-in-your-mouth caramel custard will transport you in a food coma! Absolutely delicious. A little pricey... More
