Give Your Soul Some Comfort With Parsi Fare From This Legendary Eatery

What Makes It Awesome

We had heard very good things, so we excused ourselves from office one day to head to Ideal Corner, a small joint in Fort selling delicious, fresh and affordable Parsi food. We walked down to this small, unassuming restaurant, and found it on a shady corner on Gunbow Street. Once we entered, we found a cool restaurant with a bike parked inside, reminiscent of so many other Parsi joints we had visited in town. Here's what awesome at Ideal Corner. 

We ordered a bowl of mutton salli boti and chicken dhansak for two people, and the order reached us within two minutes. The mutton was tender and falling off the bone, and the gravy, while a little watery, was still total comfort food on the nippy day. The chicken dhansak had a deliciously creamy and thick gravy, and the chicken pieces (while few in number) were tender and well-marinated.

For drinks, try their carrot juice for sure. However, all their juices are freshly squeezed and never watered down. The entire meal at this place set us back by INR 500, and we had definitely over-eaten. We highly recommend this as a quick and affordable pit-stop if you’re in the neighbourhood.


Oh and if you're a dessert person, don't miss out on the caramel custard. And honestly, we'd really not want you to miss out on their lemonade or the raspberry soda. I mean, it is and always will be a classic. 

I love food, Bombay and people who do amazing things just for the sake of doing them.
