We’re always exploring the city looking for pretty places to eat and recently discovered Moombai and Co located inside The H Hotel. With it’s vibrant ambiance, colourful interiors, vast menu and delicious food, this place was surely worth the visit.

What to expect | The interiors are quite quirky and nostalgic with a great atmosphere to hang out with family or friends. The place is filled with colourful memorabilia like old Bollywood movie posters, VCR cassettes, records and more. The food is reminiscent of dishes from Mumbai plated to suit the palette of Dubai.
What to eat | One look at the menu and we just couldn’t contain our excitement. It is filled with glorious dishes from the streets of India and a whole lot of Parsi food as well.
First things first, we started off with Sago chips served with an assortment of dips. It’s perfect to keep you munching as you wait for your order to arrive. I am a die hard Keema pav fan and instantly ordered this minced meat dish as I was pretty excited to try it out. Could it have been a bit more spicier…yes. Though Hari mirch jhinga seemed like it packed a spicy punch, it was surprisingly mild in flavour. We did love the flavours of those generously big prawns coated in the tangy marinade. Overall the food isn’t that spicy for the desi palette so go ahead and order some green chillies on the side like we did.
Bhel puri, the most popular street food from Mumbai certainly made it’s way to our table and instantly into our tummies. Most recommended is the Vada pav that is absolutely delicious. For the mains indulge in Aunty’s Bhuna Gosht paired with the Cheese garlic naan and you are in for a treat. The food here is good and you will probably end up over eating like we did 😛
We want to make a special mention for the Kulfi platter that has Strawberry, Kesar pista and Mango kulfi served on a big tub of ice with an assortment of fresh fruit to complement. This is definitely one for sharing in the group and a delicious way to end the meal.
This place serves some really nice cocktails. Some must haves include Munna Bhai MBBS that’s a whisky sour uniquely flavoured with raspberry, Auntie’s Chai Martini thats as the name suggests is a tea based vodka drink and Bollywood jhatka that’s a saffron infused daiquiri with apricot brandy. Brownie points cause they even have Kingfisher strong on tap!
Definitely check this place out if you wish to relive your time in Mumbai!
