Restaurants in Mumbai
Although its traditional cuisine is popular with Westerners, many of the restaurants in Mumbai specialise in European and Eastern cuisine.
From Tandoori and Punjabi to Gujarati and Mughlai cuisine, India’s scrumptious spectrum is well represented, but expats will be pleased to know that their favourite butter chicken and chicken tikka masala regularly feature on restaurant menus.
A 10 percent tip is more common in touristic restaurants, but long-time residents know that baksheesh (a bribe) before the meal to ensure better service is more the norm.
Some of the city's most popular restaurants include:
