While restaurants today are aiming for minimalist contemporary décor and modern menus, The Sahib Room is a refreshing change that embraces the old world charm. Step inside and you are treated like a Sahib or Memsahib. The restaurant is spacious with elegant furniture. There are a few almost couch-like tables and tall armchairs with pretty upholstery beneath crystal chandeliers. A lot of thought and style has gone into the décor. The adjoining Kipling Bar has a lovely community table, a gramophone and even an old quill pen and magnifying glass placed on an antique desk, patiently waiting for Mr Kipling to arrive. The food is regal, making this a perfect choice for an Indian meal with family or friends.
Loved loved loved this place. If I think as hard as I can - I can not find a single complaint! I’ve been coming to India for 15 years and Love the food - but this took it to a new level. I had my platinum gift for a drink and canapés so started with that - I ordered the Paneer which was delicious - 3 pieces and if you just wanted a snack it was plenty. I on the other hand just arrived from my 15 hour trip from Newark and wanted a meal so just had a piece as I prepared for the rest of the meal. Note it was already 10pm but this team was on it! I also had the Indian Viogner. I’m usually a Chardonnay drinker and this was quite nice. (Truth be told - When i started coming to India years ago Indian wine was not my favorite - but when I had the choice between the French and Indian - I preferred the Indian) I then struggled with the order since there were so many amazing options and i knew multiple options would not be good since portions are for sharing. The severs were amazing and then offered half portions - in India - this is the way to go. I had an amazing Lamb Sahib style dish. House specialty. Rose petal seasoning with I don’t know what else but it was amazing. They said it cooks overnight and it truly Fell off the bone. Perhaps the biggest delight was the dhal. Apparently another house specialty. I could eat that every day and night for weeks. I’m pretty sure there was a gallon of butter in it but they explained it was homemade and not salted so was ”healthy”. Ha. Honestly I try to eat healthy but whether this was healthy or not - i don’t care - this was ridiculous. Most amazing lentils ever. One of their specialties - again cooks overnight - I can’t recommend enough. Order a few servings:-) Chef Ali was delightful - came to the table with the executive chef and gave me lots of information about the food, the recipes, restaurants in other cities I was visiting in India, etc. The servers were Better than the ones I’ve had in many Michelin Star restaurants - trust what they tell you. My next trip I’m skipping the ordering and leaving it all to them My only tip on this restaurant is Go! You won’t regret it My only regret - I wish all 8 of my. Ights in India were here! Love Love love this place and the people!
I was here just a couple of days back and I had the opportunity to use my Zomato Gold 2+2 on drinks offer. I had vodka paan drink, a kipling sahib and a mojito. The drinks were absolutely fantastic, in particular the Kipling Sahib was perfect, and gingery. They were served chilled and I couldn't be happier. Definitely coming back again!
We had dinner in the Sahib room whilst staying at the St Regis. The menu was extensive and so, with limited knowledge of Indian food, we decided to opt for one of the set menus. It's a great idea because if you really like one of the dishes (or more than one) you can ask the waiters to bring more of that dish or dishes. I particularly liked the broccoli in mustard but my husband and friends all had different favourites. My only qualm was that there was too much food and it was so good that we all ate far too much! Chef Ali (from Goa) came out to speak to us between each course and explained about the food and how they cook it, which was really interesting. At the end of the meal, master chef Asif Qureshi came out to ask if we had enjoyed our meal. These are really personal touches that make a big difference. Ali also asked if we had decided where to eat the next night and helped us to decide then booked it for us. All of the staff were lovely but Ali was outstanding. Great meal so do try this restaurant if you are in Mumbai and want a really good, authentic Indian meal in lovely surroundings. You don't have to be staying at the St Regis to eat here.
Fantastic dining experience, with some exceptional food. From starters to desserts everything was great, even something as simple as zeera rice had so much flavour init. The shahi tukra dessert was one of the best shahi tukra we have had!!
Sincerely the best traditional North Indian food I have ever eaten (and I have spent a total of 4 years in India). Every dish here is an artistic masterpiece; and the service is top-notch. This restaurant is one of the reasons that the St Regis is my hotel of choice in Mumbai.
In a world of stiff competition between trendy and hip restaurants aiming to introduce unique ideas to impress customers, ‘The Sahib Room & Kipling Bar’ has chosen the opposite track. Reliving the times of British raj the management has tried to infuse the old world charm into the ambience. Some of the grandeur is borrowed from the yester era and displayed beautifully at St. Regis Hotel, Mumbai. The hotel serves as the ideal backdrop to such a sophisticated place carrying such an interesting name. Décor is timeless and very opulent. Rich luscious fabrics are used to back the upholstery and the crystal chandeliers manage to bring in the air of mystery. The adjoining Kipling Bar has added charm in the form of a gramophone, a quill pen and magnifying glass placed on an antique desk awaiting the attention of master of the house. The restaurant will make perfect spot to hold a business luncheon or a romantic evening with your loved one.
