There’s a short supply of and a high demand for beachfront restaurants in Mumbai, explaining why this decadent dining room and lantern-lit deck gets
packed on weekends even though the restaurant is far from Mumbai proper. A brief but well-curated menu by chef Gresham Fernandes with hints of molecular gastronomy adds to the draw.
We loved: Oven-roasted baby lobsters with red pepper jelly.

This cheerful 80-year-old restaurant in historic south Mumbai is one of the best spots in the city to sample Parsi cuisine (a blend of Persian and Indian) with dishes like patra ni machi (fish wrapped in leaves).
We loved: Mutton berry pulav, mutton under a rice pilaf, surrounded by kebabs and topped with crispy onion, cashews and dried berries.
