Ok Fufas...I have recently moved from Colaba to Wadala East...remember the Imax theatre? Same complex, so Central Mumbai.

Can you all let me know medium priced restaurants worth visiting and how to get there from home? I am a qualified chef and so am very fastidious about good food. I am a total non vegetarian, eats anything that moves!!! I am told Wanton House is very good at bandra and so am going there next week, after I fulfil all the invites I am going to this week.

Most people tell me about good food and when I go there I find it run of the mill. If its expensive its got to be fantastic, nothing less will do and thats for special occasions. I do a lot of cooking at my home from Pork spare ribs honey glazed in the oven, to Khow swey a Burmese coconut based mutton curry with 7 accompaniments, served with either fluffy white rice or spaghetti. I grill a mean beef steak, always had medium rare,no more.. make my own pepper sauce and mustard, serve it with either mashed or baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and brocolli and eat it with garlic toast. Its almost impossible for me to find a good Indian restaurant in Mumbai and I have been to most of them. The food at Mohd. Ali Road is better!! I eat only specialities even at breakfast!!!!

I find Chopsticks at Churchgate, good chinese food. If anyone goes there ask them to serve you what Arun Raghavan has!!!!! As many have told me they didnt care much for the food. I have always had an excellent chinese meal there, so someone must be ordering wrong. Lings Pavilion, behind Taj, is also very good, especially their various kinds of pot rice. Always ask for Johnny and he will order for you. Just tell him what meats you want or veggies and he will do the rest. Do it yourself and you may botch it up. Yes, Churchill, on colaba causeway opposite Khushroo Baug is very good value for money and good portions for continental food and excellent desserts. Very small place so seating is always a problem and you have to wait at times if you are more than two. Ayubs, in the lane behind Rythm House, is a very good value for money kabab joint and much cheaper than Bade Mians, though Bade Mian has much more variety.

For Nalli Nihari, a pepper based curry with a softly cooked beef steak and topped with bone marrow, Noor Mohamedi at the junction of Mohd. Ali Road with Null Bazaar turn off and next to Shalimar restaurant is the best. They have been serving this dish for around a hundred years!!! Try it with a plate of brain masala on top and sprinkle some chopped ginger and green chillies if you like. The lovely crisp Iranian rotis soak up the gravy well. You must go earlyish, 9 pm tops , otherwise they run out of the dish. Excellent for take away, if you are having guests at home. However the rotis will get leathery when cold, you can reheat them but its not the same thing.

The best payas I have had are made by Chhatriwala caterers, from Bandra, bohri style. Tell him you are a pal of mine and he will pick special payas for you and deliver it to you anywhere in Mumbai for a charge. Order the Shirmal which is the nan bread. It goes very well with the dish. His biryani is also the best I have had, hardly any oil and good portions of meat.

Gaylords has become very expensive and mainly offers choices in chicken... continental. I find the food normal there.

I don't like sizzlers as they normally dump all the veggies on top of the meats and its a hotch potch. Sometimes they over cook the meats. Never have sizzler steak if you want it anything but well done.

Starters and More make an excellent steak, with garlic toast. Its a fine dining restaurant that specialises in starters. They are the only one that has a good band almost every evening, except for Thursdays, when they have the popular Karaoke theme. Far better than Jazz by the Bay for Karaoke and they dont charge any entrance at all on any day.

I have told you all the nice places as far as I am concerned, all affordable and all very good in South Mumbai.

Now its your turn to tell me whats good near abouts East Wadala or accessible from there...Bandra Khar etc........
