Parsi Cuisine at Mumbai’s Paradise Restaurant

Standard

Looking a bit like a country town cafe or old style milk bar, as Charmaine says in her Penguin Food Guide to India, the Paradise Restaurant really is an old fashioned style, waistcoated waiters, Parsi cuisine restaurant run by a charming Parsi couple’ who still remember the Aussie writer. As Charmaine says, the chicken and cheese patties are very good. It was also great to try the Sal Boti ( boneless mutton cooked with tomatoes and apricots, served with potato straws) as well as the Parsi celebration dessert, Lagan nu custard.

Not quite as much fun as a trip Britannia & Co. (frequently visited by TV and radio crews, celebrities and heads of state), but if you are staying in Colaba and short on time, it’s a convenient spot to try some classic Parsi dishes.

It’s tricky to find, so best to look for the Kailash Prabat Restaurant on the opposite side of the road. (FYI The gorgeous Colaba Sweet Mart, is almost next door too!)
