Batlivala & Khanabhoy

The smiling face of a kind attendant welcomes you as you enter the building, since we wanted to dine at bativala and khanabhoy, he lead us upstairs through this surprisingly colourfully decorated wall.

Once you reach up, there are pictures depicting a parsi’s life. I love everything ancient and this place just transported you many decades back! The windows, their grill, the old radio, the pictures and everything I missed to write here!

The place is so quiet, it is definitely not apt for a group of friends. Anyways, looking at menu we ordered the famous lollypop na farcha, Mamaji’s prawn kebabs, and Badam Malai Chicken Pulav and bafat.

The food took around 10-15 minutes to come. The prawns first, round balls covered with til and served with raw tasting pudina (peppermint leaves) chutney. When one bites into it, the masala is something different and nice. We found the salt to be less, so the waiting staff replaced the chutney with another one which turned out to be slightly better but cold!

As it turns out, we found salt to be missing in everything we ordered, the staff there clarified saying Paris cuisine is with less salt, spiciness and slightly sweet.
The chicken next, going by the looks of it, I expected a lot of flesh inside but there was more bones and less meat.

The main course, pulaov with bafat!! The pudina masala was spread in the bottom with the chicken pieces, rice with nuts and pista above it. The bafat was given separately, with a tangy edge it made a good combination for the rice.

For me, it was a break from the usual food I generally eat.
People who need their food with a lot spice and salt will definitely not like it.
Is it an expensive place?? Definitely yes.

Parking 3/5 – Ambiance and Service 5/5 – Food 3/5
