“Excellent for tourists wanting to play safe but try eating out.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Khyber has a traditional Indian decor with a modern twist. The menu is fairly extensive. Attractive options include the Pomfret (local fish) cooked in a dry green mas ala coating. The Biriyanis also good.

“Great food and ambiance”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

It´s simply the best restaurant in Fort area in Mumbai. Great food, nice and quiet atmosphere. Good for families or couples. If you're a foreigner just tell them to make it NOT spicy at all, it will still be a little bit spicy but not as much as the original.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

A friend recommended this place to us and I'm happy to pass it on. A five/ten minute walk from the Gateway, over the roundabout and down MG Road with the Art Gallery on your left. The Khyber is a couple of hundred meters along on the right opposite a fashion department store. It's difficult to find because the signage is discreet and the entrance looks more like an upmarket office than a restaurant.
We found the menu quite extensive, the portions large and the food not too heavily seasoned - ideal for our english palates. Great ambiance and reasonable prices too.

p.s. Don't forget your camera, the interior is quire unusual.

“Total Surprise”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant for lunch as part of a cruise ship tour so we arrived with a couple of bus loads of fellow travellers. Surprisingly they were able to take care of us and regular guests without much trouble. The restaurant is divided into several rooms so it did not feel crowded. The food was very good and served quickly and efficiently. Obviously the cruise line (Oceania) felt that the restaurant was safe in terms of hygiene.

“Yummy food, great ambience and helping staff”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I was out with my friend from London, taking her to places in Colaba when I found this restaurant. Best thing was cozy and welcoming ambience after long walks in surrounding area. Staff not only helped us choose right dishes but also advised us to cut down our order when he realised we were over ordering for two. He also offered to convert one of the starter to main dish with gravy, when my friend insisted on trying all 3 varieties we had chosen.
Food was very tasty, not too spicy but just right. Staff was attentive yet not interfering unnecessarily.
They were not only helpful during our lunch but some time after leaving the premises my friend realised that she had to visit washroom. With no public western washroom in vicinity, I requested the staff inside main entrance to open the door as the restaurant was closed by that time. And he generously let us in and use washroom.
Overall it was a very good experience and friendly staff was the best part of it.
Would love to visit it again.
