The place and good gere is delicious but The guy who sits on the counter is horrible. When I went to write down our name for the wait list he kept flirting with me and trying to take me number. He even gave us the table before some other waiting much before us probably with the hope to score with... More

Had been to Dharavi and found this on Tripadvisor. Very popular, share tables. Food just excellent. Service also highest order. It is vegetarian but one of our party is vegan and they went out of their way to be helpful.

Located at Kings Circle, Matunga, it's a small joint serving South Indian dishes. Most popularly known for breakfast. Quick service, but you'll have to wait for the table, specially on a Sunday.

Tasty South Indian food. Make sure to have the idli and dosa. The service is ok, but it's a bit difficult to explain food allergies. Overall a must try in Mumbai

A friend was visiting from the USA. As we stay in different parts of Mumbai, we hit upon Madras Cafe to meet and have Breakfast - let me caution you - this is more a Breakfast place than a Chatting place! At 8 am on Sunday, we waited for 15 minutes before being shown to a table which we shared... More

If we travel to the city in the morning, no breakfast at home. Cafe Madras it is ! That's how special their offerings are. You wait outside for some time, squeeze in your ample frame into their narrow benches and well absolutely enjoy their delicious ware ! Value for money !

Totally awesome and authentic south Indian food. Table sharing might be an different experience because of lack of space for tables. but when it comes to food and taste , all of cons go away. Must try at least once , and possible every once in a while.
