Top choice North Indian

in Mumbai (Bombay)

Make this Northwest Frontier restaurant, outside the international airport, your first or last stop in Mumbai. It's a carbon copy of Delhi's famous Bukhara, with the same menu and decor. Folks flock here for the buttery dhal bukhara, a 24-hour simmered black dhal (₹945), but don't miss kebabs. Try the Murgh Malai (marinated tandoor-grilled chicken) and raan (impossibly succulent slow-roasted lamb hock).

Despite the five-star surrounds (and prices) you’re encouraged to eat with your hands and the seating is low.
