I suppose there are McDonald’s and pizza places everywhere in the world now. I wonder if they have them in Timbuktu? Probably.
But to me, one of the great pleasures of travelling is sampling the local cuisine. This is especially the case if you’re visiting India. How does Indian food in Mumbai restaurants compare to the Indian food we are used to at home?
If you’re going to Mumbai, see our suggestions on the map below. We have compiled a selection for you of various types. You’ll find fine dining, casual place, takeaways and even delivery outlets.

WHERE TO STAY IN MUMBAI
The whole reason for going to somewhere like India is to experience a different culture. Different foods, different sights, different smells, different traditions…
So don’t spoil your trip by staying in a faceless, chain hotel. Live like a local – live with a local. Faheem’s place below is the perfect example.
