We were in for a pleasant surprise as we walked into the year-old Kailash Parbat, at Saki Naka. The elegant décor and chic ambience, took me by surprise.
It maybe a household name to all in Mumbai, but it’s new avatar is equally delightful. But what is nice that the familiar flavours, quality of food, service standards remain unchanged. It is comforting to dine at Kailash Parbat. The wholesome food experience it offers, is unparalleled.
We started with the Paani Puri, which is a tradition at this place and one must not miss that on any account. The puris, sev, water are all made in-house. Commendable I thought. There are other chaats too – ragda pattice, tikki chaat, Bombay basket. But the chola bhaturas are something you must-have. Those are legendary. And the assorted bhatura platter is to die for. The cheese bhatura surpasses your expectations. Pure indulgence this!
Kailash Parbat serves a variety of cuisines ranging from Chinese to European dishes. Pure vegetarian of course, but there’s something to suit every palate. We enjoyed the Indian cuisine, but the highlight of the evening was the array of Sindhi dishes like, ‘Sai Bhaji’, ‘Koki’, Sindhi curry and Seyal Chawar. Outstanding. Spices did not overpower the flavours of the ingredients, and that really set it apart. There are sizzlers, pastas, pizza, noodles, et al, but nothing like their Indian food as far as I am concerned.
The Mulchandani brothers think of Kailash Parbat as their second home and welcome you into their home, making sure your needs are taken good care of. Manoj Mulchandani kept us company all evening and we were in delightful hands, as Chef Rajendra Agnihotri whipped up simple but delicious food for us.
The Kulfi falooda and Gulab jamun were the perfect way to round off an excellent meal. The kulfi and falooda were in harmony, but I felt the ice cream dollop was a mismatch. The mawa- filled soft gulab jamuns, simply melt in the mouth.
There is a sumptuous buffet for lunch daily and a more elaborate one on the weekends, very affordably priced. Dinner is a la carte, but complete value for money.
If it’s good quality, tasty vegetarian food you’re seeking, your search should begin and end at Kailash Parbat. There can be no better option, trust me.
