The OG Bastian, in which Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra own a stake, recently reopened in Bandra. Located in the upscale Linking Road area, the restaurant boasts an elevated rustic boho interior which looks as classy as it is comfortable.
Featuring luscious menu items consisting of old favourites like Lobster Roll, The Mac, Bastian Ceviche, Animal Prawns, Spicy Crab Thermidor, Bacon Kimchi Fried Rice and Crispy Chicken. If you’re a vegetarian, worry not! You can relish their Edamame Hummus, Tofu Bao, Korean Fried Paneer, and Malaysian Noodles.
Looking for something light? Try their signature Kale Caesar Salad, and Watermelon Feta Salad. You can even enjoy bowls like Vegan Green Curry Bowl, Chicken Bulgogi Bowl, and Pork Mazeman Bowl. The menu also has a Market section which allows guests to personalise their meals by letting them choose the main ingredient of their dish! Choose from deshelled crab, lobster, salmon, chicken or prawn.
Such sumptuous feasting calls for equally palatial dessert. You can relish their Baked Alaska and Molten Chocolate Cake or opt for their new offerings which include Saffron Tres Leches and Giant Fortune Cookie. Their cheesecakes like Lotus Kunafa and Smores are also worth trying.

Bastian Bandra temporarily closed because it went into redevelopment. After its rustic revamp, it is back with a huge bang! In addition to scrumptious seafood, the restaurant also serves intricately crafted cocktails that will not only lift your spirits but will pair excellently with your food. And if you’re lucky, you might just run into your favourite celebrity!
