Ideal Corner

Parsi in Mumbai (Mumbai)

This classic Parsi cafe has the style to match its odd little spot in the crook of a funky, rounded building, with a royal-blue and mango colour scheme and wooden stairs leading to a loft space. But the most artful thing here is the fresh, homemade dishes on the daily-changing menu.

Even Thursday's simple masoor (lightly spiced lentils) is memorable.
