What Is It?

When in Maharashtra, do what the Maharashtrians do. While there are a lot of things in the Maharashtrian lifestyle that they take pride in, one distinct part of their existence is Maharashtrian food, which they take very seriously. While Mumbai suffers from the effect of being a metropolitan which means it ends up being a melting pot of cuisines from across the globe, Thane, a little away from the main city, has been able to preserve the authenticity in its real form. 

Calling out to all the Thanekars, and Mumbaikars who frequent Thane, here are some restaurants that serve authentic Maharashtrian food.

Mi Hi Koli

Mi Hi Koli translates to “I am a fisherman”, and that is the USP of this place – seafood. With a homely setting and warm vibes, this place is known for its fresh seafood. Their prawn soup (INR 160), crab soup (INR 190), and stuffed bombil with prawn filling (INR 350) are particularly recommended.

Gokhale Uphar Gruha

A healthy mix of Maharashtrian street food and main course, Gokhale Uphar Gruha is a basic eatery that is known for its missal pav, poh, kothimbir, and vada pav. With a super prompt service, a meal for two here will cost a mere INR 100.

An old-school family restaurant setting with long bench-like seating area, Metkut is your answer to Shrikhand and Ukadiche Modak craving. They have a bunch of authentic Maharashtrian delicacies to choose from. And when we say authentic, their menu card is also in Marathi. Might help to take a local friend along, just saying.

Surmai Fry, Surmai thali, chicken sukha, and fried fish – doesn’t that sound like the perfect evening? Hemant Snacks is a simple eatery with steel plates and yummy food. While the ambience is basic, you will magically find yourself going back to place again and again.
