For busy Mumbaikars

Want a sandwich, The Kite Runneror a window seat for your Volvo ride to Goa? Now you get it all online. Malay Desai goes site-seeing to test whether you should sign up or simply press Alt+F4

Order food
Taking a cue from their daily food-ordering habits, citybased professionals Ashish Agarwal and his brothers conceptualised Mealtree. Albeit not a novel idea (many western cities, for example Durban, have centralised helplines and ‘menu directories’), Mealtree attempts to bring in all major restaurants and fast-food chains under one roof. UPSIDE: We placed an online order (rolls from Wraps and Rolls), and promptly got a call for confirmation. The delivery took the usual time it would have had we ordered directly. What impressed us was the user-friendly menus, where you can easily order from multiple places. There was also the option of mentioning exactly how spicy we wanted our chicken roll.

DOWNSIDE: We didn’t find McDonalds on the site and all items under Garcia’s were dysfunctional.
Look up a book
Our ‘time-less’ city life coupled with the love for books prompted IT professional Hiten Turakhia and his buddies to kickstart India’s first online circulating library last year. It is ideal for professionals with five-day weeks who tremble at the prospect of visiting a library or buying expensive books. UPSIDE: We shelled out Rs 2,398 (out of which Rs 500 was refunded because of a new special offer) to opt for a plan which gives three books per month, for a year. After ‘queuing up’ for The Kite Runner online late one night, we received it the next afternoon.

DOWNSIDE: Its collection is all-English. It won’t have Stephen King’s On Writing — which your nearby raddiwala may have. Nor will it have recently-published books (like Binoo John’s Entry from Backside Only) which your bookshops will have. Also, some popular books like Maximum City, which are always in circulation, may take longer to arrive.
Book movie, play or    concert tickets
Unlike some ventures of the Network18 stable, this one doesn’t seem like a strategic investment. In fact it is promoted by Bigtree Entertainment, an info-solutions provider. Good for us, we thought, since almost all the multiplex websites require boring registrations and bug you with emails forever.

UPSIDE: The portal also offers play and concert tickets. It is really simple now to make it to a play at Prithvi or Anoushka Shankar live. And we don’t even mind the extra charge. DOWNSIDE: We decided to test-drive Jodhaa Akbar and found that there were hardly any Fame cinemas on the list. Also, the site only accepted payments through credit card and not direct net-banking. However, it hurt most when they levied a Rs 15 ‘con’venience charge on each ticket. Why on earth should we pay that if the multiplex helplines were ready to book tickets via a phone call?
Book bus tickets
This one, too, has an interesting history: it was born out of the frustration of a bunch of Bangalore-based IT professionals who always suffered before travelling due to overbooking and unpredictable schedules. Today, they’ve quit their well-paying jobs and their portal boasts of a tie-up with over 250 operators across India’s smallest towns.

UPSIDE: We pretended we wanted to head to Goa overnight, logged on and printed an e-ticket in no time. We also tried the delivery, which lived up to promise and was cheaper than it’s competitor. As for cancellations, they can be done online, 24 hours before departure. What’s most impressive? You can select the boarding point nearest to you after looking up the route online.
DOWNSIDE: If only they would let us select the movie to be shown en route! We won’t have to watch films like Partner.

No good!
We checked out another site – which lets you rents cars and book hotel rooms too, but found it’s not half as good.Ticketvala’s site promises more and delivers less (we’re still waiting for a call for a request we made last week). It charges more for delivery and cancels tickets only 36 hours before departure.

Grab a DVD
Mumbai’s cinema lovers have never had it better. Today, we have many international fests, a classic movie club and a just-launched world cinema channel. This portal is among many side-effects of a booming entertainment industry in India. It says its powered by ‘hardcore couch potatoes’, but we found it does little to encourage the movieviewing habit.

UPSIDE: Still looking…
DOWNSIDE: On registration, we found out that its online store stocks only DVDs. We regret this sorely, since Moser Baer sells VCDs at a throwaway 28 bucks! Secondly, they didn’t deliver on a Sunday and shockingly showed up zero results when we searched for common retro movies like Anand and Guide. All this, after a security deposit of Rs 2,000! Not worth your while, we say.

Better options
It’s one of the better-known DVD rentals and deservedly so. It offers a million things for the film buff. It has an impressive regional-language stock and lets customers keep their DVDs as long as they want.Another DVD rental site,, is as good and cheaper.

South Bombay

The Flora Fountain lies at the centre of South Bombay. It is now known as Hutatma Chowk (Martyrs' square.)


The Flora Fountain lies at the centre of South Bombay. It is now known as Hutatma Chowk (Martyrs’ square.)

South Bombay is a commonly used term, but the extent of this district is not commonly agreed upon. This article uses the term to denote the areas of Fort, Colaba, Malabar Hill, Nariman Point, Marine Lines, Kalbadevi, Pydhonie, Mahalaxmi and Tardeo.

This district contains some of the oldest parts of the city. For long, this was the city. One of the seven islands that were joined to form Bombay was called… Bombay. This is where the British started on their long quest to build the docks and the city. They built Fort St George, which no longer exists, but the area is still called “Fort”. The Fort area contains many corporate offices and most of the administrative offices of the city and state governments.

Paradoxically, this district contains one of the newest areas of the city, Nariman Point, which was built on land reclaimed between the 1940s and the 70s. This is Bombay’s downtown, where the offices of India’s topmost corporate houses are located.

Malabar Hill, the most affluent residential neighbourhood in the city is also located here. Most industrialists have their bungalows here, and here is where the official residences of Maharashtra’s chief minister and Governor are located. The other famous location is Colaba, which used to be an island by itself, till it was connected to Bombay by a causeway. This area contains a naval base.

Most of the city’s famous landmarks, including the iconic Gateway of India, Taj Mahal Hotel and Marine Drive (Queen’s Necklace) are located here.

Nariman Point aand Fort are the commercial hubs of the city and the most sought after destinations. Bandra-kurla has come up in recent years too, but remains less desirable. A good idea to make quick money is to work part-time in a BPO or a call center. A part-time job can pay you as much as $350 a month for just 6 hrs a day for 5 days in a week .note : only good for english speaking travellers. Foreigners can also earn a quick buck by doing cameos in Hindi movies.


  • Buy some material and get some clothes made up by a tailor. It’s an incredibly cheap way to get quality made-to-measure clothes. Usually only takes a couple of days.
  • Also for antiques , see Mumbai’s Chor bazaar located in the Grant Road suburb . Be careful as to what you are buying and also bargain a lot. theres nothing like taking a local along to shop for you
  • Fashion Street (Mahatama Gandhi Road, Fort, Mumbai – From Chruchgate Station start walking towards Flora Fountain make a left turn and its a block down) – best place in Mumbai to buy cheap clothes. Bargaining/Haggling skills are a must if you want to shop here! Offer to pay 1/4 of the asking price or less and then work your way upwards!
  • Burlingtons in the Taj is a tailor specializing in Indian outfits. The Oberoi shopping arcade (in the Oberoi hotel) has a variety of shops offering Indian leather, silks and handicrafts. The Colaba area bylands also have many shops selling antiques, carpets and chandelliars. Afgan Carpets (in Colaba, near Salvation Army) stocks vegetable dyed carpets.
  • Crossroads Mall The largest shopping Mall in Mumbai, located on Tardeo Road, Tardeo.
  • Atria Mall– Near Nehru Planetarium,Worli. One of the best malls in Mumbai. It is not as big as Inorbit Mall at Malad but the atmosphere is good. Well known brands are available. Avoid taking your car as the traffic can be bad in evenings and weekends.
  • Phoenix Mills This is another great place for shopping. It is a mega center formed by converting an old cotton mill into a shopping center. It is home to numerous different things including lots and lots of shops, great restaurants, nightclubs, and a bowling alley. On weekends this area can get quite crowded, but in general this is a very safe place, with all the food clean and hygenic. There is also almost no chance of being scammed as all stores have price tags on their products
  • Inorbit Mall Great Place for shopping.Situated at Malad linking Road.Auto Riksha would cost 25 -30 Rs from Goregaon. There are movie theatres in the mall with various international brand stores.Avoid going on weekends and holidays especially in the evening
  • Infinity Mall Good place for shopping at Andheri (West) Linking Road. Includes movie theatres as well as one of the best book stores in Mumbai Landmark
  • Colaba Causeway is filled with tourists and locals. It is located very close to the Gateway of India. It is a place where you will be able to find many authentic Indian souvenir. But foreigners will have to be very careful, as all these stores are road-side stalls. What may seem a good price that the person has quoted to you, it will actually be a rip off. Do not settle for anything more than one-fourth the quoted price.. If they refuse a price just walk away, and they will call you back quoting a lower price. Normally, the more you buy, the less you will have to pay for each individual item.
  • Sarees – the best place to buy them is Dadar. The place is buzzing 12 months a year. On sundays the crowd can be maddening for outsiders. Good shops to buy Sarees are Dadar Emporium, Lazaree, RoopSangam. On N C Kelkar Road and Ranade Road you can buy almost everything a woman needs. Bargain Hard.


The dining experience at an upscale restaurant in Mumbai is more or less the same as anywhere else in the world. If you search hard enough, you will find cuisine from practically every part of the world represented in the city. But to get a real flavour of what’s unique to Mumbai, you will have to go a little lower down the scale, and experience its street food and Irani cafes. That is what is described here. For individual restaurants and other places to eat, go to the individual district pages.

Speciality Restaurants

  • Sea Food– Mahesh Lunch Home (near Fountain and in Juhu) and Trishna (Kala Ghoda)are the usual suspects and have been famous for their coastal cuisine. The latter is of course good, but had become too touristy by nature.
  • Italian– Giovanni’s (Juhu), Mezzo Mezzo (at the JW Marriott), Vetor (at the Hilton Towers, Celini (at the Grand Hyatt)
  • North Western– Peshawari (at Maratha Sheraton, Andheri). Its sister restaurant Bukhara in Delhi has been recognized as the best Indian restaurant across the world. Try tandoori jhinga, the kebab platter, sikandari raan (leg of lamb) and mangoes and ice cream (only during summers). Kandahar (Oberoi) and Khybar (Kala Ghoda).
  • Regional Indian– Dakshin (Maratha Sheraton) and Woodlands (Juhu) for south Indian, Oh! Calcutta for Bengali (at Tardeo), Poush (Andheri) for Kashmiri, Preetam’s Dhaba (Dadar) and Urban Tadka (Mulund)for Punjabi food, Chetana (Kala Ghoda), Thacker’s (Marine Drive) and Rajdhani (multiple locations) for Gujarati Thalis.
  • General Indian – Sheetal Bukhara, Great Punjab (both in Bandra)
  • Chinese– Mainland China ( Saki Naka) Ling’s Pavillion (Colaba), Golden Dragon (Taj Mahal Hotel), Great Wall (Renaissance), Spices (JW Marriott), China Gate (Bandra), China White (Bandra). Royal China at VT (behind Sterling Cinema serves some of the best DimSum the city has to offer)
  • Japanese– Wasabi by Morimoto (Taj Mahal Hotel, Colaba) is Mumbai’s most expensive restaurant, but Japanese food is on the menus of most Pan asian restaurants like Pan Asian (Maratha Sheraton), India Jones (The Oberoi) and Spices (JW Marriott), Japengo ( Atria Mall Worli).
  • Combination Oriental– Pan Asian (at Maratha Sheraton), Seijo and Soul (Bandra), Joss (Kala Ghoda) has some of the best East Asian food in the country and at moderate prices (compared to hotels).
  • Fusion – Zenzi (Waterfield Road, Bandra), Out of the Blue ( Pali Hill, Bandra)
  • Lounge – Olive (Bandra), Rain (Juhu), Indigo
  • Speciality Deli – Indigo Deli (Colaba), Moshe’s (Cuffe Parade), Cafe Basilico
  • Cafe – Leopold, Cafe Mondegar (both near Regal Cinema, Colaba) are great places to while away time, eat cheap and swig a beer or five.
  • 24X7 Coffee Shops – Vista (Taj Land’s End, Bandra), Hornby’s Pavilion (ITC Grand Central), Lotus Cafe (JW Marriott), basically all the big hotels have one.
  • Goan, Coastal – Goa Portuguesa (Mahim) Near Hinduja Hospital
  • Mumbai Street Food – To experience the tastes and flavors of typical Mumbai chaat and yet not expose oneself to the dangers of unhygenic street food, check out Vitthal’s Restaurant located on one of the lanes opposite Sterling Cinema (C.S.T.)

Street food stalls

Songs have been written about Mumbai’s street food, and you will find that the hype is justified. You will find them at every street corner, but they are concentrated in beaches and around railway stations. It is difficult to categorize them, but there are

  • Bhelpuri stalls, selling what in the rest of India would be called chaat. In Mumbai itself, the term chaat is rarely used.
  • Vada pav stands, developed to provide nourishment to mill-workers in Mumbai’s burgeoning mills. Now they are found everywhere, particularly in the railway stations.
  • Sandwich stands – try them. Uniquely developed in Mumbai, you won’t find anything like it anywhere else in India or the world.
  • Chinese food stalls – you’ll find them at many places, but they are particularly concentrated near Dadar railway station. They all have a typical Indian twist added to it, which is why it is frequetly called “Indian Chinese”. Although it is great tasting, the hygiene of these places leaves a lot to be desired.

A tip: cheap and tasty food stalls are concentrated around the city’s colleges.

One should only have the food that is cooked fresh in front of you. During the monsoons, it is advisable that all street food be avoided, due to the numerous flies which are always on the food.

Udupi restaurants

“Udupi” restaurants (or “hotels”) are everywhere. They bear the name of the town of Udupi in Karnataka, but do not be misled into thinking that they specialize in the cuisine of Udupi. They serve pretty much everything, and that is their speciality.

Usually strictly vegetarian, these restaurants were started off by migrants from the district of Dakshina Kannada in Karnataka (of which Udupi is a part), to satisfy the palates of other migrants from the district. Over time, they gained popularity as places to have South Indian food. As the tastes of their customers evolved, their menus too evolved, so much that now you can find Mughlai, Indian Chinese, Bhelpuri and other chaats in addition to South Indian stuff. Amazingly, some places serve imitations of pizzas, burgers and sandwiches too!

They are fast food joints and sit-down restaurants combined. The reason to visit them is not to experience fine gourmet dining, but to have cheap, passably tasty and fairly hygienic food. There is no easy way to identify an Udupi restaurant – they are not a chain of restaurants and they may not have “Udupi” in their name – so you will have to ask.

Though present all over the city, they started in the Matunga area. Madras Cafe is one of the oldest Udipi Restaurants in King’s Circle (Maheshwari Udyan)

Irani cafes

Absolutely the best for “Chai” and “Makhan-Pau (bread and butter). Also for assorted snacks, like Kheema-na-Patice, samosas, mava-na-cakes, etc. The best dish which is always on the menu is Kheema Pav. Kheema ( prepared from ground meat) & pav ( bread). One of the best places to eat is Cafe Military which is in the Fort area ( near the Bombay Stock Exchange). Majority of their customers are upscale like lawyers, bankers & stock brokers because of which the quality is good. Inspite of that the prices are very low, average entree would cost around US $ 1 or 40 Indian Rupees.


If you order a thali (lit: “plate”), you will get a complete meal arranged on your plate, with a roti or chappati, rice and many different varieties of curries and curd. Ordering a thali is a popular option when you are hungry and in a hurry as it will usually be served blazingly fast. Most mid-level restaurants will have a thali on the menu, at least during lunch hours. Occasionally, they will be “unlimited”, which means that some of the items are all-you-can-eat. The waiters will actually serve them at your table.

Of course, you will find many varieties of them, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. There is the South Indian thali. The “North Indian” thali translates to Mughlai, i.e. Punjabi. Do try the Gujarati or Rajasthani thalis if you can find them. They are sinfully filling and tasty. Rajdhani (At Crawford Market) serves up thalis in the Rajasthani style while Aram (near Mahim Church, Mahim) and Shree Thakker Bhojanalaya (off Kalbadevi Road) do filling and fabulous Gujarati thalis.

Fast food chains

Surprisingly, there is no fast-food chain in Mumbai serving Indian cuisine. But Western chains like McDonalds, Subway, Pizza hut, Dominos etc. have many outlets all over the city. But if you are a weary westerner looking for the taste of the familiar, be warned that all of them have rather heavily Indianized their menus, so you will find the stuff there as exotic as you found Bambaiyya food. However, Barista, Cafe Coffee Day, and Smokin’ Joe’s are all Indian chains, although they don’t serve Indian food. While Barista and Cafe Coffee Day, as there names suggest, serve coffee and pastries, Smokin’ Joe’s serves decent pizzas and is headquatered in Carmichael Rd, Mumbai.

What to eat

  • Vada Pav, The vada is a mashed potato patty. Pav is a kind of bread that has its roots in Mumbai. (The word comes from the Portugese word “pão”, for bread). The potato patty is sandwiched in the bread. Liberal helpings of three kinds of chutneys (sauces) are also added to the sandwich to make a seriously tasty snack. It is widely available on the streets and most folks price it Rs. 4 a piece. If you feel uncomfortable with the hygiene of a particular stall, avoid it. The Jumbo Vada Pav outlets at almost all train stations in the city are hygienic and its not risky to have Vada Pav from there.
  • Pav bhaji. Again part of the street food culture – this is mashed vegetables cooked in spices, topped with butter and served piping hot with pav. Widely available.
  • Bhel puri and sev puri. Again a classic Mumbai concoction, bhel-puri or bhel in short comprises mostly of puffed rice and assorted spices with a few chutneys. You can specify whether you want it spicy or bland and the vendor will make it for you. It is quite tasty and again ought to be had off the streets to get the real flavour. Most people though, like to flock to Juhu beach to try this out.
  • Pani puri. For first timers, this can be seriously intriguing. The vendor hands you a plate. Next he takes a puri (it looks like a golf ball, but brown in color), makes a small hole in it, and dips the puri into two jars. These jars contain water – one tangy on a tamarind base, the other spicy on a mint base. He tops it off with some condiments and places the puri on your plate. You got to pick it with your hand and pop the whole thing into your mouth. The outcome is an explosion. Awesome. A word of caution here though. Make sure you don’t have your pani puri from any vendor. The best vendors use only packaged water. Stick to that and enjoy the taste.
  • Indian-Chinese, nothing like regular Chinese. For a typical Bambaiyya flavour, try the Chinese Bhelpuri!.
  • Variations of world cuisine such as Tandoori Chicken Pizzas or McAloo Tikki burgers
  • If you happen to be in Mumbai in summer, try eating some Hapus (Alphonso) mangoes.



There many coffeeshops in and around Mumbai. Try the Cafe Coffee Day and Barista chains of coffee shops there are the best around town and also serve some pretty neat coffee for cheap. There’s the Cafe Mocha chain of coffee shops which also serve fruit flavoured hookas– South asian smoking pipes. If a small coffee and cookies place is what you are looking for, try Theobroma, it has an outlet at Cusrow Baug in Colaba. Those looking for a more native form of coffee can try the filter coffee, a milky coffee with origins from South India, from any Udipi restaurant.


  • Toto’s Garage Pub, 30, Lourdes Haven Pali Junction, Bandra West 400 050. (Off Pali Market) +91 22 2600 5494. Toto’s is the closest you will ever come to a Western bar. The place fires up every single night throughout the week, the beer is great and the place is packed with locals and the occasional tourist. But don’t go in expecting a seat. The tables are hard to get even if they’re empty. They are parked with ‘reserved’ signs unless you are a party of 4 or 6. 6 p.m.-12 midnight. Rs. 250 (average per person)
  • Indigo, An exclusive lounge & bar located at Colaba causeway behind Hotel Taj Mahal in South Mumbai is a not to miss destination. +91 22 56368980. On the expensive side with an average drink costing Rs. 250 upwards. Boasts of a large wine collection & also serves superb fusion food.
  • Head to the nightclubs in Phoenix Mills: Ra & Lush. Jazz by the Bay (opposite Ambassador Hotel) is a small bar with live performances on most nights.
  • The newly opened “Dome” in the Intercontinetal Hotel provides a great view of the city.
  • Zenzi at Bandra sees a lot of the expatriate crowd apart from models and filmmakers. Drinks aren’t chap and the service is slow but the place is always buzzing.

==Sleep== You can also find for-pay Wi-fi at the airport, provided by Tata Indicom.

Stay safe

One of the safest and economical place to stay in Mumbai is the YMCA. Reasonably priced accomodation are available at the Colaba, Bombay Central, Andheri and CBD Belapur Branches. For more details log on to

For a city of its size and global importance, Mumbai is quite safe. Though many people seem to think that Mumbai is full of underworld gangs and pickpocets, Mumbai is probably the safest city in the world with over 15 million inhabitants. However, there are a few basic safety tips –

  • Keep your money, credit card, passport and important documents safely with you at all times.
  • Do not display 500 and 1000 rupee notes in public.
  • Beware of pickpockets on BEST buses.
  • In case of danger, call 100 from your cell phone or the nearest phone booth.

Although violent crime in Mumbai is much less than in Delhi or in a large American city, it does sometimes occur.

Emergency numbers

  • Police: 100
  • Fire: 101
  • Ambulance: 102

The services have improved quite a bit but they are more likely to respond to a phone call from a house/office etc rather than a public phone.


Get out

  • Mumbai Metropolitan Region: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region around Mumbai is fast developing into a major conurbation. If you need to get to the surrounding cities of Thane, Navi Mumbai or Kalyan, bus services are available
    • TMT (Thane Municipal Transport) operates services in the Thane city and areas around it.
    • The MSRTC (Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation), commonly known as ST, operates services from selected points in the city to the extended suburbs.

Numerous other important routes are also covered in the MMR (Mumbai Metropolitan Region) by the MSRTC.

    • KDMT (Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Transport) operates in the Kalyan-Dombivali Area with a few connections to Navi Mumbai.
The suburban train service, mentioned above, does a good job of connecting the surrounding cities.
  • Raigad district of Maharashtra lies just south of Mumbai. It is famous for its beaches and forts. You can get there by road or by ferry from Mumbai. The important ferry routes are:
    • Ferry Wharf, Mazagaon – Mora (Uran)

Crossroads Mall at TardeoCrossroads is the first ever full fledged shopping mall in Mumbai, and perhaps in India. Opened in 1999 by Piramal Holdings Ltd., a subsidiary of a major pharmaceutical group, it is India’s first mall management company. The mall covers an area of 150,000 square feet (14,000 m²), spread over four buildings in the heart of the city.

Its ideal location in the upmarket South Mumbai precinct of Tardeo, along with the novelty factor of a shopping mall, turned out be the cause of its instant success. Hundreds of people from every corner of the city cone to experience shopping, entertainment and food in an international ambience everyday, in what is being termed as ‘shoppertainment experience’. Today the mall is just one amongst the dozens of new malls mushroomed in ever nook and corner of the city.

The company’s second mall in south Mumbai, called CR2 is at Nariman Point, and has among other things, a five cinema multiplex by INOX, food courts, entertainment and amusement facilities and an eight-level parking. There is also an annexe of the Crossroads Mall being opened just opposite the original structure called Baysidemall, which will house small shops selling specific items. Plans are also in place to construct new Crossroads Mall at Pune and in other parts of India to capitalise on the Crossroads brand.
