This place, otherwise, popular for its banquet space has a large restaurant and bar spread over three seating areas- an outdoor space, an indoor section and a hookah and bar area on the first floor. The AC indoor section although staid offers privacy and is apt for family dining. The all-vegetarian menu is fairly exhaustive with offerings from Indian, Mexican, Italian and Chinese cuisines. The 'Cheesy Eclair' and 'Kalonji Broccoli' are innovative and worth trying. The 'Birbal Khichdi' is satiating, but a tad too greasy. Most of the Indian dishes are run-of-the-mill. It is the global fare which stands out and popular among the younger crowd. 'Paneer Burnt Garlic Rice' with 'Hunan Sauce' from the Combo section is something you may want to try. The 'Quesadilla' with vegetables and oodles of cheese is palate pleasing. Uninspiring desserts on offer, so a 'Kulfi Falooda' is your best bet. The service staff needs to be trained better although they are warm and polite.
The number of affordable restaurants in Mumbai are lesser than you think. As more and more fancy upbeat eateries are launching on it’s food scene, the prices are also driving up, which leaves us foodies a somewhat lacking number of pocket-friendly restaurants. However, we have discovered a great place one can go to have a lavish meal without bothering about money. Called ‘Daffodils 23’ by the locals, this restaurant has garnered a huge interest of surrounding families. It is one of the few completely vegetarian restaurants in Mumbai and is located at Club Link Building, Near Toyota Showroom, Link Road, Malad West. Free parking and a generous buffet spread puts Daffodils 23 as serious contenders in the city. The restaurant is quite accessible for wheelchair-bound. It’s a good spot to take your family to for dinner.

While there is expected North Indian section on the menu, it quickly enfolds the global side with Chinese, Asian, Thai, Mexican, Continental and Italian, which fills any foodie with glee. The menu holds some vegan options as well that is a huge plus. Jain community often comes here. Daffodils 23 is not one of those vegetarian restaurants without a bar menu.
