Tanvi Juwale January 25, 2017





The next time you want delicious food that’s easy on the pocket, look no further!
While we await payday and try to make it through the month end, we thought why not give you some options where you can eat food that’s easy on your pocket too!
Ayub’s, Fort 
Seekh Kebabs at Ayub's

Seekh Kebabs at Ayub's

Craving for a yummy roll in the evenings while hanging out in town? Ayub’s is your place to go. Situated in the by-lanes of the art district, it serves some delicious Chicken Reshmi and Chicken Seekh roll. You can have your fill here in under Rs 500 and while you’re at it finish your meal with caramel custard.
Puncham Puriwala, Fort
Puri Bhaji

Puri Bhaji

The name says what they serve you in the restaurant but the restaurant has an interesting history to it. The proprietor had come to the city during British Raj, apparently, even before the trains had started operating in India. He made a living by selling Puri and sabji as a vendor. They’ve been at it ever since. Witnessing seven generations, this eatery has stood the test of time. They dish out wholesome meals for as little as Rs 200, even after all these years.
The J, Churchgate
Fish and Chips at The J

Fish and Chips at The J

Bang opposite K.C. College, you’ll find students and locals flocking this outlet based out of a garage. The J, Churchgate serves some piping hot fries and thick milkshakes at a price Rs 100 onward. Their J In The Jungle comes topped with cheese, barbeque and chilly sauce, and shredded chicken. They have options for vegetarians and Jains too.
Go Panda, Andheri West
Sanghai Crepe at Go Panda

Sanghai Crepe at Go Panda

Who says good Asian food is available only at fine dine restaurants? Step into Go Panda outlet and gorge on to some yummy Dandam Noodles. As you start eating here, you’ll happily fill your belly under Rs 600. If you’re in mood for sandwiches, they have those too!
Noorani, Haji Ali
Café Noorani at Tardeo has been around for a while and arguably serves the best Chicken Tandoori in town. This place used to be famous for its Biryani, but don’t let that stop you from gorging on their kebabs and curries. So, feast on the delicious Mughlai fare for Rs 300!
Kailash Parbat, Colaba


A family owned outlet, this is a place we all have eaten growing up and know the food here is just as it was when we were younger. Kailash Parbat is known for its chat and we’d select Delhi Chat anyway but if you’re in the mood for something wholesome, dig into their enormous Chole Bhature only at Rs 120.
Café New York, Girgaon Chowpatty

Crispy Chicken

Café New Yorker has been around for decades and being located close to two colleges makes it a student favourite too! You’ll see students and adults swarming this place alike after college or during cricket matches. Cheer for your team as you munch on some Crispy Chicken or Chicken lollipop without parting more than Rs 600.
Howrah, Bandra
Burgers at Howrah

Burgers at Howrah

There are burgers and then are great burgers at Howrah. Known for its delicious and large burgers, its pocket friendly too!  Howrah rescues you from both hunger pangs and junk food cravings! If you feel adventurous take on The Godfather burger stuffed with three patties, caramelized onions and sauces. If you want to keep it light, dig into their Bae or Breaking Bad burger. While you’re at it remember, it’s a felony to not try their deep fried Oreos all of this in under Rs500!
