Top 10 Restaurants In Mumbai With Quirky Names

02 Apr, 2018 by Mini Ribeiro


What is in a name? Lots actually. Sometimes it is the name itself which is a big draw. Quirky, names have an intrigue factor and attract you immediately. There are several restaurants in Mumbai with unusual names, offering various cuisines. Here are my 10 picks, where the names compelled me to pay a visit and I enjoyed my dining experience too.


Mirchi and Mime, Powai

The name of this fine-dining restaurant itself is captivating. No gimmick this, it is a place where most of the staff are hearing and speech impaired. A diner is urged to communicate using sign language. There is no compromise here on the hospitality or service and the food is top-notch. Worth-visiting, if you have not already.

The exhaustive range of non-alcoholic drinks, including some healthy options, are enough to keep you enticed.


Nutcracker, Bandra West

No, this one does not literally crack nuts, but, is a warm and friendly all-day Vegetarian café serving comfort food using the finest ingredients. The egg dishes here are popular, so, do not miss the Akuri or Eggs Florentine. Else, gorge on the Waffles and the decadent Seven-Layer Cokie and sip a brew.


Gonguura, Juhu 

Named after the famed "Gonguura leaves of Andhra Pradesh", this vegetarian restaurant treats you to home-style Andhra food. Unpretentious to the core, the food speaks for itself. The Gonguura Thali is sought after and is satiating. They also serve Dosas, Vadas and South Indian snacks.
