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

Noisy as hell - but book early because the tables fill up fast. Good service, excellent food and great variety. Just wish they can serve a beer gratis on the house to tempt you with the goodies.

Food here was less than average at top prices. The sizzlers are a better joke. They do have a hot sizzling plate, but it is topped with potatoes and then rice and then a gravy with some meat hidden inside this pond. It's really a...More

Cool ambiance, friendly servers, and good sizzlers. I was stuffed in the end and in a happy way ! The menu is meat lover friendly, and not so pocket friendly, if you are a conservative spender. The place is good to hang out and have...More

Fort/Kala Ghoda
Undeniably among the most historic neighborhoods, Fort
binds the entire city together. Those wanting to learn
more about the roots of Mumbai will have a treat
picking up cues here. From Chhatrapati Shivaji
Terminus (CST) (Mumbai’s most recognised railway
station) to the famed Town Hall and some of the oldest
bazaars, Fort reflects Mumbai’s rich past in ways that
few neighborhoods do. Popular for its family-run Parsi

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.
