Description: 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.

On our first visit to Mumbai as a family, we Enjoyed a lovely evening at Cafe Royal enjoying some tandoori and sea food delicacies with some amazing cocktails. The food was tasty and the service was good. The ambience was perfect for a cafe with a lot of history.

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 reunions or Sunday lunches. The Cafe Royal used to glitter in the past. The place now has a Leopold-ish decor which wasn't necessary, really.

It was a good experience.

I had been to Cafe Royal which is bang opposite the Regal Cinema with friends & it was my first visit to this place and my only grouse is its too far from my house in Borivali or i would go there at least thrice a week, the ambience, courtesy shown by staff, the music all fantastic, thought i was in a 5 star hotel !!!!! the food which is why people come was EXTRAORDINARY, We had beer & for food, grilled chicken in pepper sauce, grilled fish in garlic sauce, Rissoto,& mutton kheema bao buns, no words can do justice to this memorable experience, hope they start one in borivali too

it was the first time for me to visit this place with family and friends , as you may know Café Royal is quite famous for its sizzler so without doubt we ordered mix of veg and Non veg sizzler , being Veg I can comment only on that ...it was amazing .. I would say one of the best I had so far , we also orders some starters and t was impressed with all of them
Down side was that service was very bad , we had to follow up on everything .. maybe they were short on staff but still. Also some of the paint on side wall had started to come out , there was water dripping from AC out let .
most disturbing was we had to change table on account of foul smell possibly coming out of toilet on the side
Any way for me taste is most imp and you will not be disappointed on that
