Mirchi & 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.

Cost For Two: Mirchi & Mime – INR 1,500, Madeira & Mime – INR 1,400
