We all friends met here on a glorious Sunday afternoon for a chat. Had the Buffet, which was sumptuous & delicious as well.
The starters were not that great but the main course & desserts were really good. It has a good view off the JVLR passing through IIT-B.
A very relaxed place to chill & hangout with friends and even the price is not that heavy.

Visited this place twice and did the buffet on both times. Wouldn't call it a budget option but worth the occasional visit. The food was quite tasty on both occasions with some items really standing out. One differentiator was that the main course and starters are continuously cooked in small quantities and replenished at the buffet or if crowd is less, served directly at the table. This ensures that the food is always fresh but sometimes, flavors vary slightly over the same evening as not all batches come out equal. Another peculiarity of this outlet is that the name of the dish rarely matches the taste. Eg. they served us some Goan fish curry and it was an excellent fish curry but not a Goan Fish curry in any way. So one can surely enjoy the food as long as we focus on the taste and forget the name.

So the thing about this place which is famous all over Mumbai, is it's Dara Singh Thali, which is available in both veg and non veg.
What I loved about the thali is that, it is not just various dishes put together, but the different flavours that you get to experience in just one go!
I think there were about 36-38 items in the thali and each and every dish that we tried were just a burst of flavours in the mouth.
We tried both the veg and non veg thali, you might have to make reservations of it before hand.
In both the thalis, they have starters as well which are just lip smackingly yummy!
Lassi, shikanji are the drinks offered.
We went there in a group of 4 and still were having a hard time in finishing the thali. And if that's not enough, they have a variety of desserts after the main course. Gulab jamun, moong daal ka halwa and what not!
Definitely a must try!

We had been here for a party.After waiting for half and hour we got a table.We opted Ala a carte over the buffet and experience wasn't good at all.We had tried out some starters that were said to be heavenly in menu but weren't heavenly at all.They looked good but didn't taste that good were lacking basic spices and salt.There was bit a recovery by mirchi ka Salan that we had ordered main course was bit better.It is said that they serve a better buffet.But our experience regarding Ala a carte was disappointing

I visited this place with my friends and must say overall experience was good. Excellent food with good quantity. We ordered Green peas kebab, Aloo tandoori, Cheese stuffed chicken for our starter. Quantity served was filling. A must try is their Jumbo lassi and jalebi with rabri. Good place for family and friends with a variety of options of buffet too.
