“You pay the history”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

In the center of colaba this cafe' it' s The most famous tourist cafe' in mumbai where you will find only people who are in india less than a week. Too expensive for the quality of food, you pay for the history. As starbucks they sell mugs with leopold logo but the ones remembering the blast attack of 2008 are definitly to avoid.
Uhm, take a coffee if you have to tell to your friends "i've been to leopold at colaba" but if you like to taste real indian food visit the small restaurants where indian people eat.

“Over hyped over priced,living on it's name and thats it”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Leopold cafe in Colaba is one of them places making a living from it's past,if it was called Joes Cafe it would just be a normal cafe selling normal food at normal prices but this place is making lots of money from tourists just like me who think it's something special,trust me it's nothing special,it's food is very very average and very pricey,like many reviews before this there are dozens of far better eating places within 50m of this place at less than half the price.Been there done that got the T shirt,yes i got a Leopold T shirt,polo t shirt r500 (£5 UK) thats the only good value thing you will get there.

“The soul of South Mumbai”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

No one living in Mumbai can get past good old Leopold. This place - its food , it's history , it's people have a special place in the heart of most of those who have grown up in south Bombay .

I've tasted my first beer here , hung out here when we bunked college , been through dates here, was heart broken & wept when it was attacked in the Mumbai terror attack , celebrated when it came back to action , spend Sunday afternoons with my husband here & hope that someday I can pass in the Leopold tradition to my kids

Leopold is a place that one can always expect great food . For beef lovers try the beef chilli with egg fried rice

The staff is always warm , smiling & friendly

This place is a part of my DNA . It's an institution in itself

“Good place to party”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you are looking for a place to party in South Mumbai, this is definitely one of the good options. Good choice of liquor, good food and attentive staff. Place can get crowded on the weekends. But surely not a place if you are looking for some quiet time. Recomended
