Don’t Miss This Bandra Food Festival

By Mumbai Foodie June 1, 2018

Amidst the quiet lanes and bustling markets of Mumbai’s most hipster locality, reside some of Mumbai’s best restaurants and bars. There’s no denying that Bandra is witness to the most happening and trendy F&B scenes in the city and this year, Dineout is highlighting the same, through their latest edition of the Dine ‘n’ Dash festival.

Over 20 participating restaurants are offering a flat 20% discount on your total food and drinks bill as part of this Bandra-special food festival. To make things breezy, book your table through the Dineout App, and if you use their SmartPay feature you can avail an additional 20% cashback! So, when you add it up, you could be saving 40% of your bill while dining out at any of the participating restaurants. What’s even sweeter is that every diner who books through Dineout is eligible to get a complimentary glass of wine, thanks to the festival’s wine partners, Grover Zampa

As part of Dine N Novel, Dineout is organizing a bunch of unmissable events.

Out of The Blue is hosting a wonderful cheese themed brunch on the 10th of June – super lazy and chill. You can even play a bunch of drinking games there like beer pong and giant jenga, while you kick-back to some live music, all at only INR 1500 all inclusive, which is honestly so great for an unlimited brunch!

At Kaitlyn’s Beer Garden, get yourself unlimited beers with 2 appetizers for INR 999 plus taxes, only. There’s also Karaoke happening on the same night. Time to channel your inner Madonna!

Here are some of our favourite restaurants participating in Dine ‘n’ Dash, so you can plan out your meals in advance!

Chili’s American Grill & Bar

This international chain serving American food, has fairly recently made its way into our city. There’s no doubt that it became an instant success. We love them for their family style servings, and food that defines ‘no-frills’.

Go here for their Chicken Wings, Steak, and the Skillet Cookie!

Ferry Wharf

Go here for their simple and fresh Bombil Fry, Prawn Gassi and super soft Neer Dosas.

The Benedict Bistro and Bar

Inspired by New York City, The Benedict Bistro and Bar has some Hollywood classics and Internet famous dishes on their menu. From Rainbow Bagels to BLTs, their menu is delicious and super Insta-worthy!

Go here for their Eggs Benedict (of course!), Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Spaghetti with Meatballs, and do explore their selection of cocktails for the perfect Sunday Brunch vibe.



Gateway Taproom


It’s all about ‘brew’ at Gateway Taproom! As one of BKC’s favourite post-work haunts, they have a stellar food menu that matches their brilliant selection of craft beers. The food menu at Gateway Taproom tries to showcase their own beer in quite a few places, with beer batter fried elements showing up in appetizers, flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers.

Go here for the Veggie Sloppy Burger,  Prawn & Barley Risotto and their Pressed Lamb.

Hello Guppy

Stepping into this BKC restaurant transports you to Kawaii, Japan. They’ve brought an accessible Japanese experience like no other in the city.  This place is perfect if you want to introduce yourself to the intricate world of Japanese cuisine without burning a hole in your pocket.

Go here for their Signature Pork Belly, Cream Cheese Sushi and Raindrop Cake!

Pi Pizzeria

Can't go wrong with a classic Pepperoni Pizza, ever!

Have a gourmet Italian experience at Pi Pizzeria! They really serve some of the best pizzas in the city, and their pepperoni pizza is to die for. They also serve a selection of pastas and appetizers, but their pizzas truly shine brightest.

Go here for their Pepperoni Pizza, Mushroom Risotto and Crème Brûlée.

The Little Easy

Taking the password out of speakeasies, The Little Easy is now open in Bandra.

This speakeasy style pub is one of Bandra’s hidden gems. Great food complements even greater cocktails! They’ve actually managed to create an authentic speakeasy vibe, which is something this city has been missing. Although unexpected, their desserts are the real stars on their menu!

Go here for the Piri Piri Pizza, Lemon Meringue and super cocktails!


Meatloaves don't always have to be bland. Especially not this one at JLWA!

At JLWA, they’ve taken Indian food, and modernized it in a humble manner. While we’re usually wary of molecular gastronomy in unnecessary situations, JLWA recognizes the limits set by their food, while still revolutionizing familiar tastes.

Go here for the Four Spice Cheese Pizza, Kokum Ceviche Salad, and the Gulab Jamun Crème Brûlée.

266 – The Wine Room and Bar

This Bandra bar is all about the wine! You don’t have to be a wine snob to enjoy a meal here as they are experts at helping you find a wine that suits both your tastes and meal.

The all-day café, restaurant and bar has been around for years, yet hasn’t lost its charm! It’s a very safe and simple choice of restaurant, but sometimes, that’s exactly what you’re looking for. We love the food at Smoke House Deli for its no-fuss attitude that still provides a modern dining experience.

Go here for their Eggs Florentine, Banana and Bacon Pancakes and the Baconator Burger.

Apart from these, there are so many more participating restaurants! For when you’d rather drink your calories, you can pick from Drinkery 51, Craftbar, Pranzi, Kettle & Keg, B Desi, Kaitlyn’s Beer Garden, Su Casa and Blanco. If you’re looking to have a hearty meal, check out Out Of The Blue and Veranda. Need a quick pick me up? Grab a coffee from Coffee Culture, or a cuppa tea from Filli
