We were 4 that went for dinner. 3 starters & 2 main courses. The Paneer & Sheekh Kebab saved the day. the Butter Chicken was the worst I ever had... Aver enjoying Joshi House I was under the impression that the 'original' would give me...good food. I was so badly disappointed.. Service too was below par & the food could not be eaten... Spent 5K without alcohol & would surely avoid. One of the worst meals I have had in a while... Please do avoid... BhagwanMore

Whenever we are in Mumbai, we just make sure to pop in in this restaurant and you never go wrong with their quality of food. We went for a lunch and the food was yummy. Again I would repeat that prices are a bit expensive...due to their standards. Service is quick and with great ambiance. Highly recommend this place...More

The briyani and the tori’s I had was amazing. Went twice in a week and they didn’t disappoint. Some of the chairs could use an upgrade though.

We had a lovely experience on a Sunday Afternoon. The decor and ambience is something you must see to experience it. Food is just too fantastic and cannot be described in words. Full Marks to Chef Richard Dsouza and Team. It was very gracious of...him to make time to come and enquire if we were happy with the food quality. Alleppy Fish Curry and Hyderabadi Veg Biriyani were the best we have every eaten. Service by Rebant and Vjay Bai was very good, courteous and super efficient. All very nice, kind and friendly people. Highly recommended. Hope will love it as much as we did 😊More

We visited this place on Diwali day. Food is Super Delicious. One of the best meals we had in Mumbai. Aleppy Fish curry is Yummy. Veg Biryani has great 👍 flavours, that you rarely get to taste in most Biryani places in Mumbai. Chef Richard...D’Souza is doing an excellent job. The serving staff Mr. Vijay Bal and Rebant are very courteous and polite. Loved the Experience.More

A decrepit entrance does not prepare you for the vintage , nostalgic time warp which hits you under a tin sheet converted into a restaurant with some zany nook and corners. Comfortable seating and a reputation drew us to the place . Vada Pao ,...seekh kebabs , allepey fish curry or the pali raan .. food was all mediocre and nothing to write home about. Paan kulfi in the dessert was was only saviour . Good ambience and a bar but would not miss anything if we gave the main course a pass byMore

The food here is excellent in an ambiance that evokes an old school haveli. Service is solid and the selection of dishes, across the board, are all outstanding. Ordering a variety and sharing everything is the best way to go.

Even before the food, the atmosphere of the restaurant, the interior design is amazing. It is kind of hidden location that you cannot expect such a restaurant behind that door. Service was good and people were friendly. we were at upstairs, ordered food based on...some suggestions, which were really delicious, and quite mild spicy. Did not have any room left for the desert but would like to try some. maybe next time. The dish with lamb was great but i cannot remember the name.More
