Jimmy Boy has not only succeeded in maintaining Parsi traditions but also mastered in serving authentic Parsi cuisines. The place is well maintained in the heritage building and I have witnessed the same when I had gone today 20.03.17 for my lunch. Both Chicken Berry Pulao and Caramel Custard good in taste and I enjoyed the same. Jimmy Boy is... More

Since we visited this place a few years ago, new management (a member of the original family) has taken over and has brought the restaurant closer to its original glory from 50 years ago. Do go there if you get a chance.

Great place, nothing fancy but the food is spectacular. We set out for Britannia on a Sunday and found it to be shut. However, Jimmy Boy was a great find.

I liked Jimmy Boy for its authentic Parsi food. I highly recommend Bun-maska, Keema-bun,fish popcorns and shrewsberry cookies. Do try their ice cream soda!! You can try their assorted plate of cookies with tea too. If you are in Mumbai, do visit Jimmy Boy once!!

We visited Jimmy Boy because same family members from Kolkata wanted to try an Irani Cafe, and this was recommended. We went for lunch- and asked for recommendations from the server for ordering. The keema pav and mutton dhansak were excellent! Chicken kalamari could have been more tender. Berry pulao was good. Wish prices were a little lower,though!

I had the non-veg lagan nu bhonu (set meal) with fish in a leaf, fried chicken - lots and lots of sides and some kind of custard to finish. I would definitely recommend this place especially sitting next to the road and taking in the fresh (somewhat polluted) air. Food is delicious - try the jeera/masala soda for a fairly... More

On my last visit to Mumbai, we all decided to visit Jimmy Boy for some authentic Parsi fare for dinner. We ordered dishes like the Bombai Duck, Patranu Macchi, Berry Pulao, etc and caramel custard, apple pie for dessert. We loved the taste of every dish we ordered. The person serving us helped us determine the portion sizes to order.... More

Jimmy Boy is an old, Parsi cuisine restaurant which has been around for decades. Its old world ambience makes you nostalgic but the food is just about Ok though very nomially priced. Other places have much better fare but this place has the ambience. Don't have very high hopes about the food.
