8 Best Buffets in Mumbai | MF Guide
Do you have those days when you’re super hungry but aren’t sure what you’re craving? This must be why someone invented the buffet. Even though my eating capacity is minuscule, buffet spreads always entice me and luckily, Mumbai restaurants offer some of the best options. Read on for my recommendations…
Who doesn’t like unlimited sushi? In terms of taste, it may not be the best but the sheer variety will get you excited about the Global Fusion buffet. Moreover, they got the best prawn crackers in town and the dim sum is supremely delicious. They also deserve brownie points for their interiors – stone murals at the reception, the little pond in the dining area, floral furnishings and the pagoda-like private tables. Wait, did I tell you about the unlimited Baskin Robbins corner?
Price: INR 899 onwards
When it comes to buffets, Barbeque Nation is royalty. I was introduced to the concept of buffets with Barbeque Nation and I completely fell in love. The grilled prawns are so juicy that you’ll be taking not one but several servings of the same and don’t even get me started on the Cajun Spiced Potatoes.
Where: Across 14 Barbeque Nation outlets
Price: INR 655 onwards
Why is it called Seven Kitchens? Because the buffet serves a spread spanned across seven world cuisines including poha, puris, Chinese delicacies and a host of sweet treats such as pancakes and gelato. This buffet is definitely heavy on the pocket but it sure makes for one serious spread.
Price: INR 3000 onwards
I am not talking about the one in Alibaug, but the Flamboyante in Cuffe Parade that serves a lunch buffet featuring salads, starters, mains and desserts. But, it’s their Khow Suey that is the star of the lot along with salads and starters. Trust me, you’ll be going back to the counter for seconds and thirds.
Where: 7, World Trade Centre, Cuffe Parade
Price: INR 676 ++
If you’re craving Mughlai or North Indian delights, don’t miss the Bombay Barbeque buffet that includes classics like Chicken Seekh Kebab, Kasundi Jhinga, Kesari Mushroom, Dal Makhani, Bhuna Gosht and biryani. They even have live counters that serve pizza, pasta, chat and tawa veg.
Where: Bombay Barbeque outlets in Vashi, Thane and Khar
Price: 699 onwards
BKC | DIVE.
Looking for an affordable yet scrumptious buffet? BKC | DIVE. has got you covered with their lunch buffet that comes with a live counter. Savour on their popular khichdi, Chinese favourites, biryani and a host of desserts. However, this one is available only on weekdays during lunch hours.
Where: Ground floor, Pinnacle Corporate Park, Next to Trade Centre, Opposite MTNL Office, Bandra Kurla Complex
Price: INR 425++
Eating a salad while overlooking the sea doesn’t sound like a bad idea, does it? Pizza By The Bay’s lunch buffet features soups and sandwiches but it’s the salads that make for a wonderful, healthy meal.
Where: 143, Soona Mahal, Marine Drive, Churchgate, Mumbai
Price: INR 945++
While Mini Punjab’s Lake Side is known for the Dara Singh Thali Challenge (MF team participated and lost!), it also serves a daily buffet that serves a range of Indian and Chinese starters, shorbas, mains and desserts. This buffet is ideal for a family outing.
Where: Adishankrachay Marg, Near Panchkutir Bus Stop, JVLR, Powai
