“Just look and run”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

It's a great place to see, huuuge monument. Go, enjoy, take your pics and run, otherwise you will have to keep on saying no to photographers and all kind of pushing sellers.

“Gateway to Mumbai”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Its a must see place once in Bombay. Reminds you of old charm of the city. Besides the Gateway there are a lot of places to see around. Though like most of Mumbai it is a bit too crowded!!
Once there you must try food at Bademia ( strictly Non-veg only ) its just 05 mins walk on a street behind the Taj.

“A must see in Mumbai”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Went there just to see what all the fuss was about. Suitably impressed. If you have time in Mumbai, visit this.

“worth visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

May be vising this place during monsoon played a pivotal role in influencing me to put a 5 star rating to this place but this is one such place in Mumbai where the crowd is energetic and you see happy faces around. Minor Suggestion: Do carry a water bottle when you visit this place.I guess it has its own charm though, what I like the most about it was that the "Taj Hotel" was right next door!

“Worth a look for the hype that sorrounds”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Not sure why it is rated so highly. Extremely busy, crowded and it's definitely not a place to relax.
