Although staying at MIG club for almost a week, we usually passed the restaurant without giving a second look, as we had something planned daily. It was only on the last day of our trip that per force we had to have lunch at Ameya. The restaurant runs in a partially covered porch with a small indoor seating area. The place has very tight/congested seating arrangement (very difficult to restrain young children who are raring to run around) and remains crowded at all times of the day (which is probably a good thing), and the service is just a step away from tardy. However, the food quality and taste is the saving grace for this establishment. Ameya, which means 'boundless or limitless' in sanskrit, probably refers to the vast variety of dishes on offer or the limitless taste in many of the dishes. I would especially recommend the Kokum juice, a jungle fruit somewhat like a tamarind, which has a unique taste; don't leave the place without having a glass of this thick purple juice. Majority of the patrons were locals, and 2-3 with whom we interacted swore to the authenticity of the Maharashtrian taste of the food. It is good value for money too.

Ameya Restaurant serves typical and authentic Maharashtrian food and trust me, they're just too good at it. Our office was recently shifted to BKC and all we could see around was a couple of Pizza restaurants, and some serving Moghalai and Chinese. Not they are bad, but nothing like home-style cooked food especially for someone like me, who craves for typical Maharashtrian food since I don't cook very often at home.
What you shouldn't miss here - <i>Kothimbir Vadi</i> (Rs 35/-) (divine, out of the world, awesome, ambrosial!) - It's a snack made from gram flour with lots of coriander (<i>kothimbir</i>). The chutney that comes with it is awesome, but only if you have it in the morning, say you order it by 10am - 11am. If you order after that, the chutney has started to spoil, since it is made of coconut. It's the same one they serve with <i>Poha</i> (Rs 35), another yummy breakfast item we often order. Besides there's <i>Daal Khichdi</i> - that's comfort food for me. Quite filling and of course, tasty!
Another hot favourite of everyone at my office is the <i>Zunka</i> or the <i>Pithla</i> (Rs 75), which is another preparation of gram flour of batter like consistency (they make it quite spicy n nice) and <i>Bhakri</i> (Rs 20), a huge one made of rice flour.
This is one place where you get those <i>Ghar Ka Pizza</i>, a very Indian flavour to it; like my boss says, 'It's the kind we had before Dominoes and Pizza Hut happened to us.'
Haven't actually seen the place, so dunno what it looks like. We usually order it to be delivered to our Office in BKC. They take an hour to deliver, but that's something we've learnt to live with, 'coz that's the case with the other places around that we order from. The ladies and gentlemen, who take orders over the phone don't sound very friendly, but they do their jobs well, do not goof up on orders and I think it's the food that we look forward to and it is too good for anything else to matter.

Ameya is bang opp the famous MIG club in Bandra (E). The ambeince in just about average & medioccur but dont go on that that the food at this place is really good. They specialise in Maharashtrian food and some of the recommendations from their kitchens is Misal pav, dahi Misal, kothimbir wadi, alu wadi, sabudana wada, ukadiche modak, bharlela vangi, vangi bhath & the batata wada is just awesome. They also serve punjabi food which is superb. Recently we had gone to this hotel and called for 1 batata wada, 1 masala papad, 1 veg handi, 3 butter rotis, 1 chapati, 1 fruit salad with custard, 1 peice ukadiche modak & 1 masala chaas. The batata wada were just awesome, the masala papad was also good, veg handi was superb with portions more than enough for 2 people, the rotis werent bad either but made out of maida (wheat flour), the fruit salad with custard was ok and the ukadiche modak was also good. The total bill was about Rs 300.00 for everything which was more than resonable. The restaurent is flocked with people on any afternoons on weekdays which is a sign of it being famous. parking is not a problem. They also serve south indian food & fast food. The service is also quick at this place. The ambience is just okayish but the food is good.
