Have been a regular patron of Cafe Royal for the past few years and have thoroughly enjoyed their beef sizzlers (yes, the water buffalo ones). The quality has remained pretty unchanged through the times and by far serves one of the best sizzlers in town

We went to Cafe Royal on Friday evening for deserts. The deserts counter was "deserted" and the display half empty. Maybe those were the signs for us to also "desert" the place. So we went ahead and ordered the Blueberry Cheese Cake, along with Gooey...More

Cafe Royal has been serving hungry patrons since 1919, which makes it one of Mumbai's oldest restaurants. Interestingly, the land on which Cafe Royal stands today was once used as a shed to park horse carriages for the Maharaja of Mourvi. What started back then as an Irani tea and samosa place gradually grew into one of the most famed fine dining restaurants with a live orchestra. Today Cafe Royal is once again bringing back the magic of the past and operates essentially as an all day cafe, specializing in Sizzlers and a variety of continental delicacies. Cafe Royal has always had a style of its own and it has reinvented itself time and time again with a continual revival of its palate all owing to the commitment thats behind it. Its reputation for good food brought the former President of the United States, Mr. Bill Clinton to dine here during his visit to India in the year 2000. "We are working towards glorifying Cafe Royals history by offering a menu which is a rich amalgamation of continental dishes and sizzlers in addition to which there are a variety of coffees and sandwiches to relax on and not to forget its increasing appetite for beers. The great western feel and cozy dining experience makes Cafe Royal one of those places as a lifetime's remembrance.
