Khyber, Kala Ghoda - Restaurant Review

There are a few restaurants which build up a reputation and tend to lean on those credentials for way too long. My recent visit to Khyber makes it seem that Khyber is one of those. Khyber is located at the turning of Kala Ghoda in South Mumbai and has been there since ages. There are stories I'm sure which a lot of South Mumbai old timers have in which a meal at Khyber features.

Having never visited them personally, I've always been a bit skeptical about the reviews which I got from friends and family. Maybe the rose colored glasses were tinting their opinion was always my worry.

Soma, Santacruz East - Restaurant Review

This review is one where I didn't get a chance to click any photos. Was out for a work dinner with some guests from Japan and Europe and the last thing I wanted to do was take photos from various angles and make their food get cold. However there was no way I was going to let an opportunity go to review this place.

Majestic Masala, Tuli Imperial, Nagpur - Restaurant Review

Majestic Masala, Tuli Imperial, Nagpur - Restaurant Review

Travelling for a business trip can be a stressful affair, with unpredictable places to say and lunch and dinner being something we get a chances to have only when the schedule and clients whims allow it. Though such trips have always thrown up interesting life experiences for me, from the Trip where we slept in the Train attendants compartment to making my way to Bhilai to last minute escapades trying to make sure we don't miss the flight.

However this time during my trip to Nagpur we had the good fortune of staying at the Tuli Imperial.

On our only night there (it was a brutally short trip) we were exhausted after a bit of a hunt trying to find presents for my colleagues god-daughters. Tired but hungry we decided to give the Majestic Masala the Tuli Imperial's in house restaurant a try.

Jewel of India, Worli -  Restaurant Review

Do all of you have some restaurants which you have heard a lot off from your parents or elders but never really visited there?You know one of those places where they go "Oh, Ya! We used to go there so much na" and then trail off into memories never having taken you there. One such place in my family was Jewel Of India. How me and the better half gotthere is a tale for another time.

Jewel of India is supposedly iconic so I'm guessing most of you guys know it's location better than I did, however for those not familiar with it. It's located right next to Nehru Center and Planetarium.

Only Parathas, Linking Road, Bandra - Restaurant Review

Only Parathas, Linking Road, Bandra - Restaurant Review

Now usually my family is a bit too lazy to venture out all the way to Bandra for a meal. Why you might ask isn't she the queen of the Burbs and all that? Well yeah she is but there is just a mental barrier in our townie heads that its all the way thereeeee.

In truth though in terms of raw distance it is hardly farther than Nariman Point from my house and that fact is fast sinking in to me at least. So after a little bit of pushing and reasoning that the Sea Link exists for a reason and we should contribute to its upkeep by at least using it once in a while; my parents agreed.
