    heres a list of the best places to eat if ur in mumbai..... :cool: :cool:

    Seafood (Indian)

    Gazalee - MIDC Andheri (E) and Vile Parle(E) - moderately priced - very good food - fish and crabs

    Saaybaa - outside Bandra Stn. (W) - very cheep and very decent place - limited seating - avoid rush hour

    Mahesh lunch home - Fort - off the Citibank lane on DN Road - probably the most popular seafood - expensive nowadays

    Apoorva lunch home - Fort - near Mahesh - off the lane opposite to Mahesh - cheaper and equally good

    Excellensea/Bharat lunch home - newar RBI building - the biggest prawn I have ever eaten - very good food

    Priya Lunch Home - Right opp. Vikhroli Station - cheap and good

    Malvan Samudra - Outside Vikhroli station (W)

    Sion Lunch Home - near Sion station - Speciality: Mangalorian food

    Fountain Plaza - near Fountain - off DN Road, the street that goes left at Eastern Watch. Inexpensive and great fish

    Maharaja - near chakala - good choice of crabs

    Highway Gomantak - under the flyover of Bandra (E) - moderately cheap and great food


    Cafe Royal - opposite Regal - very costly - the best juiciest steaks in town in my opinion

    Kobe sizzlers - Sakinaka, Andheri Stn (W), and Girgaon Chowpatty - slightly costly - nice steaks in the form of sizzlers

    Alps - behind Regal and Bade Miyan - very cheap - decent steaks with beer - smoky place

    Rodas Parabola - Hiranandani Powai - expensive - the midnight menu has excellent steak

    Yoko sizzlers - Lokhandwala, Khar - I have had diametrically opposite experiences here - so take a shot

    Midnight Buffets
