Time is always premium in a city like Mumbai and we are all rushing around. Some restaurants ensure that we are able to enjoy a quick lunch albeit in a limited time, by offering a set or prix fixe lunches. The table d’hote menu, in most of the places offers sufficient variety and yet helps us to save time as we do not have to spend time selecting. The food is served quickly, course by course and one can thus dine swiftly. So, if you are hard-pressed for a time during lunch, do not worry. Just head to any of these 5 places, we recommend.
