Environment is very nice. The bakery within the restaurant makes it even interesting both in terms of look and aroma. Pallonji's sodas are icing on the... More

Jimmy Boy is adorned with recommendations by various travel/food sites. This restaurant is well known for its parsi cuisine and the restaurant flaunts an old world charm only a decades old Parsi restaurant can air.

Since we visited this place a few years ago, new management (a member of the original family) has taken over and has brought the restaurant closer to its original glory from 50 years ago. Do go there if you get a chance.

Great place, nothing fancy but the food is spectacular. We set out for Britannia on a Sunday and found it to be shut. However, Jimmy Boy was a great find.

I liked Jimmy Boy for its authentic Parsi food. I highly recommend Bun-maska, Keema-bun,fish popcorns and shrewsberry cookies. Do try their ice cream soda!! You can try their assorted plate of cookies with tea too. If you are in Mumbai, do visit Jimmy Boy once!!
