Mirchi and Mime / Madeira & Mime

Two of our favourite Powai eateries, Mirchi & Mime and Madeira & Mime {gastro-pub in the same building} have a lot to offer when it comes to Indian cuisine and world’s street fare {ramen, pasta, rolls, pizza, street food from Bangkok and sandwiches from Soho}. You can couple the spread with a regular fare of spirits {including craft beer} and even mocktails for the teetotalers. But the beauty of this bar is the differently-abled staff that serves you with a smile, every time you visit.
