The Friends Union Joshi Club

A humble bhojanalya, Friends Union Joshi Club has been around for decades, hidden inside an old colonial building in Kalbadevi, and is known for its home-style Gujarati thali. Though they’re known for the simple thalis, FUJC changes the items of the thali everyday.
The thali will include a variety of dishes – all made in a simple Gujju style. The food is supposed to be very close to home-cooked food, so the spices and the flavours are really simple. Expect four types of vegetable items, rotis, small bhakri, farsan, two types of dal {sweet and regular}, two types of kadhi, rice or khichdi, chopped cucumber salad, chutney and pickle. For the dessert, patrons can order it separately for an additional cost.
