A Parsi food joint one must try
Though I have been working in Fort area for past 5 years and passing by the Jimmy Boy quite frequently, it was the last week when I got in for the first time. A typical parsi setup...enjoyed the chicken farcha and berry chicken pulao on the mezzanine AC wing...enough for an average quantity eater like me...Thanks.
Pathetic quality, quantity, service...
Visited this place sometime in 2009 on a late evening with a friend. The waiter looked like some distressed old Mexican being forced into labour. We had ordered a typical Parsi "lagan nu bhonu" off the menu. Initially ordered one thinking it would suffice both of us. Turned out, the food was meant for a baby. The gravy, chicken farcha, patra macchi, everything was pathetically bony. We ended up ordering another, since the quantity was so less, never knowing what would befall us soon. Now the best part, my friend and I got a terrible bout of Diarrhea when we reached home!! We ended up shitting our brains out. Gosh! Even my Pakistani joint in Muscat fared well, quality and quantity wise.
Must visit Parsi cuisine place
I had been here long time back when my boss took all of us out for lunch. We had some fish and dal and rice and some desserts. I do not exactly remember what we had but I remember I was the happiest to be there. If you want to try good Parsi food, this is the place. All foodies should visit once.
Have you ever considered sharing a table with a total stranger? Kasturi Gadge says, it makes great sense for crowded Mumbai and could make for a great platform to network.
