This place is great. The food is delicious and the owner is uber friendly and accommodating. The Chana masala is worth the trip along with everything else on the menu.

We stopped here on our way traveling from NH to NJ. We found it based on Yelp and Tripadvisor reviews. This is a one man show. The chef/owner does it all including take orders, cook, serve the food, handle payments, answer the phone, etc. If you want to be pampered, this is probably not the place for you. If you... More

Stopped in on way back from D.C. as an alternative to sitting in bumper to bumper traffic. Looked up reviews on TripAdvisor as well as Yelp. Both rated Mumbai Rosai as very good; and both were very accurate! Curry Lamb and Chicken dishes were excellent, while Naan bread topped it off. Owner was terrific, friendly and helpful. This is a...

I was longing to visit this place to try their Indian cuisine. Their website displayed closure time as 8.30pm, i reached by 7.10pm and was abruptly told by the owner that he wished to close early, so he was closing it down for that day. Thereafter never felt the urge to visit here again and preferred trying other Indian cuisine... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat in between client visits and was so happy we did. The young boy serving us explained what everything was and was extremely patient with my coworker who doesn't usually eat Indian food. The meal was very yummy and inexpensive for Indian food. I only wish they had samosas at lunch to enjoy!

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. We just relocated to the US from the UK; ONE thing we have yet to find is a Indian restaurant that serves authentic Indian food - until now! My husband had lamb bhuna which was fantastic and the chicken saag served with the lunch box was amazing. Prices are more than reasonable.... More

I was so tired of the office cafeteria, so my husband and I decided to go across the street and have Indian food. We opened the door, there was one man behind the counter. There were probably 6 people sitting and 2 waiting for take out. The tables were dirty, nobody cleaned them probably for a good hour. He man... More

Mumbai Rosai is the definitive quaint hole in the wall restaurant with excellent food that we all look for. It's comfortable but small. The owner/chef/waiter is able to handle everything by himself without ever compromising quality. The Chicken Tikka Masala, which the menu describes as the peoples choice, is different that the bland gloppy tomato sauce that most restaurants serve.... More

It tasted like they used ketchup in their chicken biryani. It was the weirdest biryani I've ever had.

Mumbai Rosai is primarily a take-out restaurant; however, the small intimate dining room has been beautifully renovated and is quite pleasant. The menu is limited, but more than adequate to satisfy any taste. My wife and I have dined at Mumbai Rosai at least a dozen times. The food is simply superb. We both love authentic Indian cuisine and haven't... More
