    Hey all!

    My boyfriend and I are spending New years in India this year and I was hoping that some of you guys can give me a few tips on where to go :D

    We fly in on New years eve, and I have never really spent much time in mumbai, so I don't know it well.

    We wanna go for dinner in a cool place? or maybe a street party kinda thing? I have nothing so far, so any tips will help..

    Lots of hugs

    New to Mumbai eh...

    There are tons of cool places to have dinner in Mumbai, list down your prefrences in terms of budget, type of cuisine and location. It'll help recommending a nice place.

    Regarding the street party thing, no clue, as Im not into clubbing.
    The lounges and discs are pretty expensive though. Any prefrences there???

    Thanx for you reply wizardji :)

    We fly into the international airport. We haven't booked a hotel, but it will be quite central. Budget is about Rs.4000 in total (£50 or so, i think thats Rs.4000). We both love food in general (lol) so any place that serves good food is good with us! :D

    We are taking a train to go to a safari on New years day, so we dont want a heavy night. You know.... romantic bomantic si jaga :D

    Ok, Im assuming that you'll stay somewhere not too far from the airport.

    There is this suburb called Bandra (quite central). There are plenty of places to eat there. Im suggesting a few, they are pretty romantic from my point of view dont exactly know your and your BFs definition of 'romantic' so dont lynch me in case u didnt like it.
    1. Asia Wok (Chinese cuisine) -- Go to Shoppers' Stop mall at Bandra (Linking Road). Try getting the seats next to the windows, they are tinted but the best available.
    2. Sheesha (Mughlai/desi Cuisine) -- Above Asia Wok, same building. Its a rooftop restaurant. But, no liquor here. They serve Hukka which is mindblowing.
    3. Olive (Mixed cuisine) -- Located at Pali Hill (Bandra). Amazing place and even better food.
    4. Out of the Blue (Mixed Cuisine) -- Again Pali Hill (Bandra). Very nice place.

    If you are willing to go a little far away towards South Mumbai, then you can visit 'Cafe Mogambo' -- Located at Colaba next to a place called "Bombay Store".

    BTW, with your budget you can easily try someplace like a 5 star hotel. I never fancy them but its all upto what you think is ok.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    4k is not enough to spend New Year's at a 5-star hotel.

    I would highly recommend 'Out Of The Blue' at Pali Hill, Bandra...a very romantic way to spend the evening. They have live music and the ambience is excellent.

    A filling meal would amount to about Rs. 1,000 /- (perhaps Rs. 500 /- more with alcohol). I would not advise going to a nightclub on New Year's as it will be expensive and terribly crowded. Rather head to the waterfront at Bandra Reclamation and enjoy some quiet time together.

    Afterwards you can head to a cafe / lounge such as 'Le Chocolat' at Khar for some desserts and their exotic teas. Moreover it's open till 1:30 AM.

    Have you been to Goa during New Year's Eve? It's a madhouse (and not in a good way).
