Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Delicious food, great service and fantastic atmosphere - worth a visit in itself, but combine with a mooch around lovely Pali village or up in Juhu.

We were at Pali Hill Bandra west and checked for top restaurants in the area. Tripadvisor had a rating of 4.3 for Pali Bhavan and some of the reviwes siunded interesting. The food and service were excellent. Pink Prawn curry with rice tops the list...followed by Rusmari Jheenga and Batti Malai Broccli. Paan ki Kulfi was actually kulfi wrapped in paan leaf. It was delicious!! Well done.More

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

Its worth every single penny you spend here. Delicious food, romantic ambience, slow music in background what else one wishes to have. Bit expensive as portion size is just adequate for two people but this how it should be to prevent food wastage. Polite n...courteous staff. Overall 5/5 👍More
