As reported here, Delhi-based businesswoman is starting two floating restaurants next to the Gateway of India. And if this news is anything to go by, then this is the coolest piece of news we’ve heard.

Say Whaaat?

Delhi-based Shripriya Dalmia Thirani, who won the bid to start Mumbai’s first floating restaurant at the iconic Gateway of India has now confirmed that they will be up and running by October 2018. Named Queensline Neverland and Queensline See Yah, the restaurants will give a spectacular view of the Mumbai skyline and unique experience to both- the locals and travellers who gather together at the city’s most-visited spot.

Shripriya was quoted here as saying “they will highlight the Indian flavours and culture to outsiders, and will also cater international flavours to Indians.” Both will have space for 400 diners and are likely to be operational 24 hours and throughout the year. They will also have all the necessary security provisions in place before being up and functional. Thirani confirmed here that after sailing for over a month from Turkey, the ships have finally reached the docks in Mumbai.  One ship will be stationed at The Gateway of India and the other at Girgaum Chowpatty. Passengers will be picked up from designated points and ferried to the ships for a small cruise to enjoy the city sights from the sea.

So, We're Saying...

Need we say anything more? We’re already digging out all the fancy outfits we’ve been hoarding on to in our wardrobe because a meal at these floating restaurants definitely calls for dressing up.
