Hunger pangs can be dangerous at times. When you get a serious case of the munchies post midnight and there is not much around, it can get tricky. Luckily, Mumbai has a few folks that understand how bad hunger pangs can get and are more than willing to help ease them. Apart from running successful food joints during the day, these bad boys go the extra mile to make sure you are covered for any late-night cravings. If you are looking for a place to order some food in the middle of the night, look no further.
Zaffran – The original outlet of this popular Indian cuisine based restaurant is known for its late night deliveries. Not only is the food here stellar, especially their raan, biryanis and various kababs, but they are open till much later than most other places. The last order needs to be punched in at 3.40 am, but by the time the food comes to you, it is possibly 4 am and it is not too far from breakfast. They really put the ‘late’ in late-night deliveries.
The Third House – There is plenty to choose from in this delivery outlet, from rolls, salads, entrées and even a small section for healthier options. They deliver till 4 am but you need to call in a little earlier to place the order as the kitchen closes at 4 am. You could, however, drop by for a takeaway in case you are in the neighbourhood and do not want to wait for delivery. They also accept cash and card payment, which you do not see often.
Fatboys’ Kitchen – This is only a kitchen (it is not a restaurant or café) but they deliver to anywhere in Andheri West and, in some cases, might even extend up to Juhu (possibly for an additional cost). The food is limited to chicken or vegetarian sandwiches (but with plenty of choices in each), burgers, milkshakes and greasy sides. Perfect for when you need your junk food fix. The major plus point is that they are open till 3 am!
Fly By Knight – There are two outlets to this exclusive late-night delivery outlet. One is based in Mahim and the other is in Jogeshwari. They only operate at night from 9 pm to 5 am and have a menu that includes junk food and even things like a bag of chips or chocolates. Their menu has typical items that you might suddenly crave in the middle of the night and Fly By Knight will come to your rescue.
Jaffar Bhai’ Delhi Darbar – They have multiple outlets across the city and the most important thing is that all of them are open till 2.30 am and are happy to deliver to you. Jaffar Bhai is known for its Mughlai, North Indian fare and for their biryanis, so if you are looking to tuck into a wholesome and heavy meal, this is right up your alley.
