Insider Tips

  • The restaurant is designed like an old Bombay home with a verandah and a central dining area. There is no attempt, thankfully, to tart up the surroundings
  • Old favourites like the Kejriwal Toast from the Willingdon Club are refined
  • Despite its hipness, the Canteen is not ageist. There is no desire to cater to shot-drinking rich kids, reservations are accepted (though hard to get) and families are welcome.

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic

4.8/5

Floyd Cardoz has always been at least a decade ahead of his peers. As chef at New York’s massively-influential Tabla, he introduced the flavours of India to sophisticated diners who only thought of Indian food in terms of curry. For this, his first venture in his home city of Mumbai, he has created a menu that is astonishing for its originality and spark. Dabeli, a street snack that only became popular after Floyd left India, gets re-invented, and theplas, pulled pork, vindaloo masalas and some local flavours get refreshing twists. This is great food, simply made (no molecular tricks in this kitchen), and served with warmth in pleasant surroundings in the centre of the old mill district of Parel. The service, overseen by the co-owners, is knowledgeable, polite and no-nonsense with neither the snobbery nor the obsequiousness that some trendy places exhibit.

Long drive but worth it

Good authentic pan Indian cuisine - lamb and snapper dishes were mouthwatering, and excellent Bloody Mary’s. Highly recommended for an unpretentious and charming meal

Excellent!

Really cool design with the verandahs and the high ceilings. Really enjoyed the dishes on the menu which is inspired by regional Indian fare. Went here for lunch and enjoyed some dishes form the Special lunch menu.

Great food

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The food here goes beyond the traditional and fuses ingredients and styles from other cultures. Everything we ordered had a much deep depth of flavour - even the dahl was amazing.

All-time favourite!

While I have been to Bombay Canteen many times in the past, this is the first review I am writing. It is my absolute favourite restaurant in Mumbai. Their food is very consistent and delicious. The service is very good and the bar is well-stocked. It just won the best restaurant in India award from Conde Naste. There is plenty of parking (paid) as it is in the Kamala Mills complex.

About The Bombay Canteen, Lower Parel, South Mumbai


To revolutionize traditional Indian cuisine it doesn’t need molecular gimmicks, a fact proven by brilliant chef Floyd Cardoz, who with his immense talent and vision has managed to transform Indian cuisine. His ideas are way ahead of his peers in innovation and technique. He has proven his mantle by doing his stint at New York’s influential restaurant Tabla. His first venture in India is in his hometown, Mumbai’s Lower Parel area where he has crafted a casual dining space for his avid foodies. The restaurant is located at Kamala Mills, near Radio Mirchi office and is a favoured dining spot by all age groups. ‘The Bombay Canteen’ as the restaurant is fondly called is a very popular dining destination so it’s hard to bag a table so make a prior reservation.


The beauty of The Bombay Canteen lies in its simplicity. It is designed like an old Bombay home with a veranda and a central dining area, which is basically designed with patterned floors and glass panelled windows. Sturdy wooden furniture gleams under the bright yellow lights and the pillars are covered with fun pop artwork. There is plenty of space to sit around, even in the veranda that flanks the main dining area. On left side of the room is an open bar that holds an impressive collection of booze. A long mirror gives the impression of airiness to the room and reflects the lights beautifully. The idea is to keep the interiors subtle, not like other neighbouring establishments who prefer to jazz up their décor to make them more eye-catching.


The Bombay Canteen is an Indian café & bar that serves homely desi food with a unique twist. The place is only marginally expensive so make sure to indulge in variety of dishes. Sip onto guava chili mojito to go with munchies, sikkimese fish & shrimp momos, desi tacos, kejriwal toast, chatpati karari gobhi, charcoal grilled chilli calamari, pav bhaji porterhouse roll, canteen Haleem, arbi tuk, grilled dhokla chaat, cheesling jhal muri and Kerala fried chicken. Combine the mains with either steamed tingmo garlic bread or brown onion rice or khamiri naan. Try milk braised Kashmiri raan, bamboo rice khichdi, grilled murgh aur anda curry, nargisi scotch egg, grilled bhindi sindhi kadhi, banana leaf wrapped roasted fish and Cardoz’s braised short ribs. Round it off with, coffee rasgulla, Horlicks & badam kulfi and kheer caramel custard.
