This one again doesn’t need any introduction. It is one of the best restaurants in Mumbai for lunch. In fact, it’s been showcased in CNN and remains as an iconic restaurant for Mumbai since 1923. This is a typical Iranian Restaurant with every inch of the place, furniture and food are as per un-written “How Irani Café should be” copybook rules. The only sad part is, this restaurant opens only for lunch hours and it is closed on Sundays, making it inaccessible for suburb people.  One must have Berry Pulao here which is a speciality of this place.  Salli boti and Mutton Dhansak are also not to miss. Dhansak is served with Brown rice. Complement your meal with Ginger Soda / Raspberry soda. End the meal with their famous Caramel Custard.

Recommended dishes:  Mutton / Chicken Berry Pulao, Mutton Dhansak, Caramel Custard, Salli Boti, Raspberry Soda  / Ginger Soda
