Not very busy at lunchtime but they had the wit to use music till it filled enough to disappear behind the hubbub of happy diners. Lots of distinct flavours, all pleasant. Just over £30 for lunch for two (just with water) with service which was...More

When I was there, they did say they do weddings and such. So I would think you could. At least a portion.

The original Bombay cafes have almost all disappeared. Their faded elegance welcomed all: rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallas and courting couples. Fans turned slowly. Bentwood chairs were reflected in stained mirrors, next to sepia family portraits. Students had breakfast. Families dined. Lawyers read briefs. Writers found their characters. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost four hundred cafes at their peak in the 1960s. Now, fewer than thirty remain. Their loss is much mourned by Bombayites.
