    Tales and Spirits Bistro

    Tales & Spirits

    Airy, spaced out and bright, Tales and Spirits Bistro is located snugly at the end of Senapati Bapat Road. With a very young vibe, you’re sure to feel a lot more relaxed and comfortable.

A must-visit for those who appreciate Italian food. A meal for two costs about INR 1200.

    11 East Street Café

    Good food, great ambience, and music that speaks to the soul. The heart doesn’t really desire much more. We recommend their bangers and mash for the non-vegetarians. Vegetarians, don’t fret, they have kickass paneer tikka masala, too. We love their benches and go here for your date if fine-dine isn’t your thing. A meal for two costs about INR 1000.
