I went to Chetana for gorging into their amazing Rajasthani thali for lunch. For lunch, they serve thalis only. You can select a Rajasthani, Maharashtrian, or Gujarati thali. My Rajasthani thali was very tasty and filling. The service is quick and the staff is very...More

Truly enjoyed the food here. We ordered one Rajasthani and one Gujarati Thali. It was a sumptuous meal and a yummy one. They also have Maharashtrian Thali. Maybe we will try it next time. The service was also very good and prompt with courteous staff....More

There are not many varieties of thalis but each thali is unique and you become too full if u try out all the stuff as part of a thali

Situated close to an art gallery, the place offers a special atmosphere. Local customers (the majority, few tourists were seen) enter this restaurant with a smile. The food is quite locally styled, with lots of sauces and variety of spices. Not all dishes tasted fully...More

They serve Gujarati, Marwadi, Health and Maharashtrian Veg thalis. The super best part about this is that if there is a particular vegetable that you don’t like in which ever thali you have ordered they will replace it with a vegetable from the other options....More

Fort/Kala Ghoda
Undeniably among the most historic neighborhoods, Fort
binds the entire city together. Those wanting to learn
more about the roots of Mumbai will have a treat
picking up cues here. From Chhatrapati Shivaji
Terminus (CST) (Mumbai’s most recognised railway
station) to the famed Town Hall and some of the oldest
bazaars, Fort reflects Mumbai’s rich past in ways that
few neighborhoods do. Popular for its family-run Parsi

Chetana Vegetarian Restaurant (established 1946) is a historical landmark in the heart of the business district of Kala Ghoda. Its origins lie in a cultural cafe that was once the cultural hub in South Mumbai which prided a Chess Club as a part of its culture. Unusually, inside the restaurant is a bookshop specializing in Indian Philosophy (Chetana Book Center). Beside is a boutique specializing in Indian handloom garments (Chetana Craft Center). The founder philosopher/businessman of the establishment, Sudhakar Dixit, is the editor of an influential spiritual classic, "I Am That" (the teachings of a contemporary sage - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj). His daughter, Chhaya Arya, herself an artist continues the tradition of Chetana.
