I am from Lucknow.....so it was nostalgic for me to hear the words sheermal, kebab parantha especially in this part of mumbai.
Kaizer is a rooftop restaurant, offering Awadhi cuisine, with a live kebab counter, dimly lit deco, white curtains flowing, low comfy cushiony, candles...... perfect ingredients for a romantic date:)
Definitely go for the kebabs on your first visit. I would recommend the galouti kebab and lahsuni chicken as a must try.... try it with sheermal or ulte tawa ka parantha. As a foodie I also learnt about two interesting ingredients that they use called meetha ittar ( see pic) and kewra water.
The dim lighting and Shamianas makes this place so peaceful and romantic. The place does not serve any alcohol at all and the menu is a good spread of Indian cuisines and Mocktail's etc. We ordered Aloo Aachari and Shami Kebab, both were simply delicious.
Matki Chicken with gravy and Kajoo is a must try.
The staff is well mannered, courteous and ever smiling.
This is an amazing roof-top restaurant.
If you are waiting to get the table, you can enjoy the sea view from a bit elevated platform. Ambiance is just perfect with a rooftop shamiana setup and dim light.
This is a very beautiful place for all kind of occasions, be it friends, family or a date! They serve delicious food.
A full paisa vasool experience. They have a very narrow entrance and you need to climb around 4 odd floors to get to the top. But it's totally worth it. Food quality is excellent, service is fabulous, staff is polite.
Great place to go with friends, family or even date or special occasion. Quite expensive but the view is amazing, ambiance is so classy and service is super efficient. I love the Dahi lasooni chicken and Tandoori chicken –both are classic dishes and must have on every visit here. Also try the murg tikka masala and their specialty of Cheese Naan which go fantastic with each other. In dessert the ultimate indulgence is Phirni.
I liked being here with some of my friends as the food and service here is excellent. chicken platter is great, biryani is a favourite, Kathi roll is amazing, masala papad was great too-we sat and chatted and chilled out for some hours and it was not as expensive as we thought either! Loved it and will definitely go back1
Andheri's Koyla has been around for quite a while but I never quite got to visit the place mostly because I like Colaba better. Nevertheless better late than never. We decided to go for it on a friend's birthday. Just like the original, this Koyla is a rooftop Arabic lounge situated on the third floor of a building that's on the lane right opposite the Tanishq showroom. We reached on a cool winter weeknight, which is ideal for such rooftop restros. It has a very Arabic feel. The red and yellow lighting with the traditional Arab lamps and the shamianas. We booked a shamiana but since we were 15 of us, it was difficult to fit us all in one so we decided to occupy the elevated centre table. They played Arabic music throughout the night to add to its feel. Now the Colaba one has a lovely seaside spread whereas out here all we can see are buildings and a concrete jungle. I knew that the starters are to die for so we ordered multiple plates of some of their most delicious appetizers. We relished the Nawabi Mushroom Tikka, Malai Chicken, Lasooni Chicken the most. Even the Paneer Tikka was quite good. We stuffed ourselves with starters so much that we ended up having cheese kulcha and the fragrant Biryani as the only main dishes. Both were delicious as well. Service was relatively quick. All this and the bill managed to come out to be a little over 6000 for the entire group. Very VFM. So burbies who do not wish to travel to town, you can very well visit this beautiful rendition of the Middle East in Lokhandwala.
The monsoons are tough on rooftop restaurants. They are forced to build an artificial roof or move to a lower floor. That's whats happened to Koyla. They've moved to a lower floor. As a result, you wont get anything close to a rooftop feel. It feels more like a sindhi-punjabi sangeet party venue, carpets shamianas, low couches etc etc. I had my apprehensions when I came out of the elevator and saw the 'new' claustrophobic Koyla, but decided to take the risk. It paid off well. The food is better than ever and the service can compete with any establishment in the Oshiwara-Andheri-Lokhandwala belt. The chicken kebabs were tender and succulent, the buttermilk was super tasty and the chicken tikka masala had a great flavour without being spicy. I hope they move back to the rooftop soon, but this will do for the time being. Go there if you want great food and service.
