Ten-Second Takeaway

Anyone who has experienced real Mumbai street food {and not the Bombay Bhelpuri stall in Janpath} knows that Delhi serves a modified version of it. This restaurant in the Satya Niketan market is probably the only source of true blue Mumbaiyya food and we love it.

Chow Down

Chaat Platter, Dabeli

Sip On

Cold Coffee, Classic Oreo Shake

Winning For

More than anything else, this place wins for its authenticity and taste. The food is downright amazing and can be quite a nostalgic trip for those who’ve lived in Bombay, and have pretty much survived on the street food there. {They actually have a guy from Matunga that makes the chaat}.

Simplicity And The City

There isn’t much to the overall ambience here. The place has been done up in the simplest way one could do a campus eating joint. The seats are comfortable, and the neatly done up space is actually a change from the loud designs of most cafes in the area. Lighting comes in the form of railway lamps {another Mumbai-style thing} and one thing that will definitely catch your eye is the chaat stall outside the restaurant.

That is the most Bollywood way of describing what the menu has to offer. We started with the Chaat Platter {a mix of dahi puri, sev puri and bhel puri} and could tell that the restaurant meant business from the very first bite {you’d instantly be reminded of the stalls at Juhu}.

Next up, we tried the open garlic chilli sandwich which was spicy, cheesy and probably a sandwich we’d like to start our day with. The Gini dosa and the noodles dosa were true to the roadside offerings near Nariman Point, and there are many other variants that you can try.

The vada pav, dabeli and misal were the right combination of spicy and tangy flavours, and a bonus to that is they make their own breads {so you’re not going to be served the regular packed pavs}.

The sizzling brownie with vanilla ice cream, as generic as it might sound, is not generic at all. The brownie is baked in-house and is the perfect end to a delicious meal{this one is a must try here}.

Beverages here are pretty good as you get served decent cold coffee, Oreo shake and a brownie shake {they use the same brownie here}.

So, We’re Thinking…

We’ve seen people try authentic Mumbaiyya food in Delhi, and seen them fail too, but this place nails it. If you’re someone who frequents the market often or are a student from the colleges nearby, this could just become your favourite place. The restaurant serves only vegetarian options {and for once, we aren’t complaining}.
