We totally understand the vegetarian's apprehension to eat at restaurants that serve non-vegetarian food. Call it being paranoid or particular, but I think we all deserve to have a (romantic) meal without worrying about cross-contamination in the kitchen... So we sorted it all out for you. These places are romantic, shakahaari-friendly, and some of them have booze, too!
We Made A List Of Pure Vegetarian Date Night Spots for Shaakahari Lovebirds
Quattro, Lower Parel
Their menu serves up vegetarian Italian fare with an Indian twist. And yes, it's kaafi romantic. Think candlelight, polite service, a soothing ambiance and beautiful-looking vegetarian food.
What To Eat (Together): There’s more to shakahaari food than paneer, and this place is proof.
P.S: If you're both still going strong on those New Year's resolutions, firstly, WOW - Secondly, they've got a whole separate menu for healthy fare! It's called Quattro Skinny, and it's pretty loaded with options. It's also got a ton of vegan options.
Breeze Lounge, Powai
A rooftop restaurant with a gorgeous view of the Powai lake, we think this place is the ideal date night location.For a city like Mumbai, there’s nothing more romantic than a view of an open lake, and the city skyline. Sit here and take in the breeze together!
What To Eat (Together): The Basil Garlic Paneer, the Celery Thyme in Mushroom, the Greek Style Pizza, and the Homemade Ravioli with Creamy Sauce. Please conclude with their amazing Peanut Butter Cheesecake!
P.S: Get here early, because they don't take reservations... And waiting for a table is NOT romantic!
Burma Burma, Fort
What better date place than Burma Burma to be blown away by traditional Burmese food? We love their menu, for its authenticity, and what's not to love about the folksy decor? We're sure your date will be impressed by how cultured you are, if you take them here. Also, we know this isn't exactly romantic... But the cutlery is beautiful.
What To Eat (Together): The Shwepayon Hincho (Pumpkin and Basil Soup), the Mopi Salai (Pan-fried dumplings), and the Laphet Hatmin Kyaw (AKA Fried Rice with Tea Leaves). All the Khow Sueys are stellar, too!
P.S: They don't serve alcohol, so in case you really want to have a drink, schedule that part for before/after your meal!
Spesso Gourmet Kitchen, Nariman Point
Spesso's an all-time favourite. With tables lined in long rows, the ambiance is cozy and communal, but still date-friendly. Head here if you're spending V-Day evening together after a long day at work, in SoBo. The food's wholesome, and non-pretentious.
What To Eat (Together): The Crispy Vol-Au-Vent Boxes (INR 315), the Mexican Pizza (INR 360), and the egg-free French Macarons (INR 265), and the Tiramisu Della Casa (INR 285).
P.S: They don't serve alcohol, but do try their Chocotini (INR 230) and the Valentino Love Shake (INR 225)
Quesso Ristorante, Oshiwara
This one's a quiet spot above the VERY noisy Shreejee's, and the VERY noisy Link Road. Another old-timey favourite, Quesso is the kind of place that has candlelight dinners on Mondays, so you can bet this one's kaafi romantic. If one of you is craving Italian fare, and the other's craving Thai, you'll both be sorted here.
What To Eat (Together): the Wild Mushroom Broth with Cheese & Parsley, the Fondue Pot (INR 775), and the Cannelloni (INR 515)!
