Mumbai is full of great eateries, so when you have to differentiate you go local and do it in a very great setting.
That's exactly what Taj Vivanta has done with its in house restaurant "Konkan cafe"
They serve the delicious coastal Maharashtra cuisine in jaw dropping setting that has local touches all over it. From a wonderfully carved pillar at its centre to the cutlery and decor everything makes you forget that you are in South Mumbai!
We had a Konkani thali which sets you back for about Rupees 2500 but is worth every single penny!
It starts with some rice crisps served with various chutneys and followed by Rasam and multicourse Konkani meal comprising of various Curries from India's South Western coast, wadai (savory croquettes), rice dishes. This all goes with huge variety of local breads that included neer dosa, appams (my choice of all), and Kerala parotta.
They have also a very good a la carte menu which also offers some fusion dishes.
The staff is very courteous and has great knowledge of the food served there.
Overall a highly recommended place if you are looking for something different in Mumbai and are willing to pay the price for it!
