Jalwa of food @ JLWA, Bandra (W), Mumbai

With 3rd restaurant/bar in less than a year, Priyank Sukhija is sure on a mission to change the landscape of Mumbai's restaurants/bars. Massive and spacious are the words synonymous with what Tamasha, Lord of The Drinks and now the youngest one Jlwa are. The Bold and shiny interior makes a vibrant ambiance. During daytime, enough …

Sprout Gourmet @ Powai, Mumbai

The name may be misleading to make one think it's an outlet serving just salad and healthy options but they have a host of Indian and international cuisines on the menu. I tried Falafel Wrap, Burmese Khow Suey, Creamy Pesto and Northern Veg. Falafel Wrap was refined wheat flour based falafel accompanied with potato chips. …

Ruha Kitchen & Bar, Powai, Mumbai

The first thing you notice after entering the place is the royal and nawabi interiors. Colorful and cozy enough to give you feeling of entering a royal dining room. While the interior is aesthetically great, the combination of western music and pan-Asian menu imposes an identity crisis to some extent. We opted for corporate lunch option and …

Lord of the Drinks, Andheri (W), Mumbai

Exclamations like 'big', 'spacious' are often missing while describing restaurants in Mumbai where cramped spaces are a way of life. Spread across 8000 sq. feet and divided into 3 sections, al-fresco, a ground and a first floor, Lord of the Drinks would be synonymous to those hardy found exclamations. The moment you enter the place, you get …

#RoyalIndianExperience @ Shakahari, JW Marriott, Pune

Ever wondered how a royal dining would have been and what royals used to eat? I always did and it took me a trip to JW Marriott, Pune to understand that royal dining is less about royal food and more about a royal experience. As far as food it concerned, it is the authenticity that …

Neel literally means indigo in English. While it's English named twin serves Continental, Neel caters Indian cuisine. This twin restaurant shares kitchen and is separated by a partition. Guests can sit on either of the section and can order food from either of the menus. When we visited for lunch on Friday afternoon, they assisted …

Indian Curry @ Tansha Comfort Regency, Vadodara

 A family gathering of around 15 people and an obvious and annoying question, where to go for dinner so that everyone gets some or other thing of their liking? Long discussion and Indian Curry @ Hotel Tansha Comfort Regency came out as a choice. It was Sunday evening and we called to book a table …

New Menu @ Farzi Cafe, Lower Parel, Mumbai

Farzi Cafe has already established itself as a go-to place for Indian food with a twist. I got an opportunity to be part of their new menu launch last month. The moment you enter the place, you feel like entering an ancient place primarily because of the intricately carved patterns and a little dimly lit …

For that little pause – Pause Wines

Life can wait, as they say, a little pause in a life that is constantly in rush hour works more than just a stress buster. That's the philosophy behind Pause Wines which has 100 acres of vineyards in Nashik and now has become a prominent name in the Indian wine industry. For me, that little pause …
