NCPA café: a must visit - for food & ambiance

NCPA café located at the heart of South Mumbai provides a great alfresco dining experience.

This spacious, alfresco jewel of a cafe, located in the heart of Mumbai’s theatre district (NCPA complex), in South Mumbai, is a hidden gem. Those who know if become regulars and others like me, didn’t know it existed till last week.  But I am hooked now… and can’t wait to visit again.

Visited last week with two friends, one of whom recommended the place. Its got two sides open and is surrounded by trees so gives a welcome sense of space.

It has an extensive menu comprising sandwiches, snacks, Parsi specialities, tandoori and Oriental. Also a good range of deserts. No alcohol

Here’s what we ate:

Green apple, pomegranate, lettuce, celery and feta salad with apple cider dressing

Prawn Khao Suey (amazing- by Farrokh Khambata of Joss & Umame fame)

Pepper crusted fish with balsamic teriyaki sauce, served with steamed rice and sautéed veggies

Each of us had a drink – 2 diet cokes and one fresh lime soda

Its also fairly easy on the pocket for first rate food. (so good that I forgot to photograph it)

Cant wait to return with the family

Rs 1800 inclusive of tip for 3 of us

Open from 12 noon to 10 pm. There is no bar

Valet parking is available
