I am a traveled foodie, which is basically a travel writer who travels, explores and then eats to fill her hungry belly. As you can well imagine, finding a good place to eat when traveling is not hard. Sometimes it is down a set of stairs, behind a building, in someone’s house or in an alley.

Lavishly live travel and food out loud and keep reading to discover the 7 Restaurants in Mumbai’s Colaba To Experience. Delicious foods they are best known for are waiting for you, tourist, wanderer!

This one’s Colaba’s famous landmark restaurant- definitely don’t miss out on visiting this one. Quite honestly, it is less of a restaurant and more of just an extended food stall, but the lip-smackingly delicious kebabs and grilled chicken they serve will blow you away! Bademiya is open till late in the night and is in fact, one of the top hangout spaces for most food lovers in the region.
Don’t saunter by, just go in, you are welcome and you will be so happy you did, trust me! Good eats are footsteps away!
Busaba has been awarded twice for being the best restaurant that serves Korean food. Additionally, it is known for its beautiful decor that has a romantic vibe to it. Calling all those that love their spring rolls and soup. This is your stop! Busaba serves amazing spring rolls and soups! Order them, savor and enjoy!
Best time to visit Busaba is during the evening because that’s when it is bubbling full of energy. If you want to feel Colaba’s spirit, this will allow you to become part!
Delhi Darbar is another great must visit when you’re in Mumbai’s Colaba neighborhood. A suitable environment for families and larger groups as well as smaller parties. You will admire the pricing it is not offensive and the food is good!
Take your taste buds through a joyful trip here. Simply put, if you are seeking the best of the best in Mughlai cuisine they have it! Try the butter chicken and mutton biryani- two of the best picks from the entire menu! Don’t forget the Chicken Leg Burrah!
Food Inn is very strategically located on the busy street of Colaba! A perfect place to hit up if you’re hungry after a day of street shopping! My suggestion is for you to try some of the best starters and appetizers. After all, starters are what the Food Inn is known for. Food Inn is inexpensive and provides generous, filling portions!
I want to suggest that you tell them to NOT ADD Salt to the meals, or it will be too salty, this is one trick I learned there. If you love tandoori chicken order it here and you will crave it ever after! Best here! Chicken Tika Masala rocks here too! Just thought I would toss that info in, just in case…
What’s best is that the portions this place serves are very generous, so you’ll be getting total value for money here. It gets you out of the hotel priced food and gives you genuinely good eats!
Leopold Cafe is probably the most iconic restaurant in the area and serves amazing Indian, Chinese and Continental food. Historic because it was a target during Mumbai’s terror attack in 2008. However, that only made the cafe destination even more popular. Next, the food is delish!
Some suggestions if I might: The kung pao chicken, mutton keema, mushroom tikkas and mojitos here are to die for.
Piccadilly is another great restaurant worth a visit- you’ll find it cramped between tiny shops. The eatery is one that you will talk about forever because of location, the kind you seek out but can’t always find! Once you locate it, you have found gold!
Food is all yummy but, the most legendary dishes are Iranian and Lebanese. What should you order?
Some of the most loved and ordered items of the menu include the shawarma roll and caramel custard. Shawarma rolls are commonly eaten with tabbouleh, taboon bread, tomato, cucs, etc. You can top it with tahini, hummus, etc.
Seeking ambiance in Colaba? I have just the place, it is Koyla. Go here to not only eat but to enjoy the ambiance. Rooftop dining and coupled with diwans and the floor type seating add to the beauty of the decor. But there is so much more than ambiance, it is about the food.
Dine on traditional northwestern cuisine. The stuffed mushrooms, dal makhni, kakori kabab, rabri, and kulfi are some of the best items on their menu.
Feast and enjoy ambiance, take it all in. Part of any journy is food. Enjoy your adventure.~DANA
