What to Eat?
It's always difficult to pinpoint one good thing about a restaurant you like. The food is definitely one of the highlights at Bombay Brasserie. From the small plates menu, we loved the Marathi Jhinga Mirch made with Thecha. Then there is the Naga Ghost Pepper Wings and the tangy wings dusted with Bhoot Jolokia. With flavours from all across the world, the flavourful Bengali Panch Phoran Chicken cannot be missed.

The menu offers local favourites such as Chowpatty Special Bhel, Rasta Masala Toasty and Irani Kheema Maska Pao, paired with the perfect selection of desi cocktails, beers on tap and indigenous Indian teas from across India (such as the Kashmiri Bloom, a fruity and refreshing blend of black tea, spirited with notes of apple,figs and lemon).
The Patiala Bar at Bombay Brasserie is another highlight. Old favourites from across cultures and countries comfortably sit alongside refreshing new brews.
With an interesting bar menu that brings together homemade liquor infusions in Desi Cocktails like Southern Express & Fauji Party Special to Desi Mocktails like Juhu Beach Gola and Not-‐so-‐Saada; which are all about seasonality, taking full advantage of the wide range of ingredients that pop up across India through the year.
Bombay Brasserie also introduces killer Pauwa Cocktails, 180 ml of desi concoctions, served up in Pauwa, or quarter bottle.
