“Excellent food, ambience and service”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Just what we were looking for in hectic Mumbai. We loved the 9hrs cooked lamb-leg "raan" so much, we came back the nect day! Food is excellent - really, location is top notch, service is great and we even got a bottle of wine from Chile, at a price, but "Montes", what else can you hope for in such a chaotic city? We would love to come back.

“Been there, done that!!”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

Residing and working in SoBo, you've to visit this place one or another time. I used to work at stone-throwing distance from this place. Hence, visited one saturday for lunch.

Decor: oh, the ambiance loving folks will fall in love with the classic indoor setting.

Food: Pretty good, near authentic border frontier fair

Certainly value for money to visit once.

“Khyber bas ek baar”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I was bound with the responsibility of taking around my Australian colleague around Mumbai who was staying at Taj. he requests me to take him to a good north indian dinner in SoBo. My first choice- Masala Kraft. he turns down. I google and find Khyber and its fan following. He is amazed with the powerful name and we get in without a booking.
Value for Money - 2/5 - A place of crorepatis of mumbai. extremely expensive. A gourmet restaurant
Ambience - A perfect 5/5 - Like a maze. room inside a room. Dimly Lit with good interior.
Service - 4/5 - for the patience exhibited in explaining the dishes.
Food -
Achari Tikka - good but Noorani beats this anytime.
Butter Chicken - smooth tender chicken dipped in malai. wow..
Lachcha Paratha - Reminded me of my Kerala tour. Was perfectly cripsy and equally soft.
Kulfi & Rasmalai were great

“Up The Khyber Pass”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

I have been a regular at Khyber for the last 2 years. Mainly when being hosted by business colleagues. It seems to be a natural choice for visiting colleagues from overseas. The location, reputation and recommendation by concierges is probably the reason. Any night of the week you will find that there are more expats & foreigners than Mumbai locals. A very good reason why so few locals. The food is good but in my humble opinion overrated and over priced. There are many more restaurants with better value for money including Copper Chimney & Punjab Grill, where you have to travel mid town for. Have nothing against Khyber, except to say that if you are willing to travel out of South Mumbai...then do it

“Expensive”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The ambiance is good and the food is okay. Clearly not worth the money you are paying but the tandoor platter is very good and the only one which you can consider value for money.

Clearly the ones that you can skip in the city. Try the nearby Copper Chimney for Indian food.
