One of them is SodaBottleOpenerWala, an iconic Mumbai restaurant. Eight years ago, the restaurant opened a branch at the Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad.

SodaBottleOpenerWala, a Jubilee Hills culinary treasure that has delighted customers for eight years, has announced its decision to close. The café made an emotional announcement that this Sunday, that is the 20th of August, will be its last day in business.

A popular destination for both locals and tourists looking for a taste of nostalgia and lively flavours is SodaBottleOpenerWala, which is recognised for its distinctive blend of Parsi cuisine, Irani delicacies, and classic Bombay street food. The café was created to pay tribute to the rapidly disappearing tradition of Bombay Irani cafes by reviving their charm and culinary heritage in a modern setting.

In an emotional statement, the café’s management expressed their bittersweet feelings, stating that it was a hard decision and they will miss seeing their customers. However, they promised to return soon. The announcement has caused the regulars at the cafe to experience a flood of nostalgia. Many people have expressed their gratitude for the special times they had inside its lively walls.

In just eight years, SodaBottleOpenerWala had become a favourite place for hangouts. The restaurant had similar old-school interiors as that of the Mumbai one. In addition to this, their warm hospitality, interesting menu, and unique and awesome music made it a popular place to relish the authentic Parsi flavours.

The place served the best Salli Boti, Bohri Keema Pav, Eggs Kejriwal and their Classic Akuri. Additionally, they had a variety of kebabs like Chicken Chelo Kebab, Jujeh Kebab and so on. And while mornings are incomplete without Irani chai and bun maska, their raspberry soda is refreshing!

However, Hyderabad folks are going to miss coming to this quaint restaurant and ordering their favourite Parsi dish.
