Revealing the Secret: Secret Spice, Mulund(W), Mumbai

It’s no secret that this is yet another name in the host of Pure Veg. family restaurants in Mulund but has a wide range of cuisine on the menu.

Easily approachable from LBS Road, the restaurant offers free valet parking.

The place is seating optimised. That means it gets really congested and noisy when the restaurant starts getting fully occupied. They have ground + 1 floor of seating arrangement including a dedicated bat section and outside seating. Prefer first-floor seating to save yourself from loud chitter-chatter noise.

The ambiance is again marred by the space-optimized design. Low ceiling renders feeling of confined space. A little dark due to poor lighting, color and texture of walls and furniture.

The menu seems well curated. Includes range from Indian (main course and snacks), Continental, Chinese and Oriental.

In my couple of visits, we have tried soups, starters, a range of Dosas, sizzlers to name a few. Soups and starters are recommended. Dosas are avoidable. Not bad but not good either. Pad Thai Noodles (Rs. 319++) and Paneer Steak Sizzler (Rs. 349++) were good in portion and in taste if you set aside expectation of authentic and extraordinary. I got a stapler pin inside my pad-thai noodles and received nothing more than a few words of apology!

Saff is helpful and attentive but much like other mid-range restaurants, the speed of service is a direct function of the rush the restaurant has.

With around Rs. 400-500 pp, a good range of cuisines and good taste the restaurant is a good VFM option in the vicinity.

Recommendations: Soups, starters, Pad Thai (with a blind eye on the stapler pin I got inside.)
