There are three things that made Mumbai popular among tourists. These are theater, festival, and food. However, it is often the food culture in India that stands out among the other known aspects that draw visitors in this country. The street food alone is teeming with local vegan recipes.
However, there is more to this city than just its local Indian cuisine. In fact, the food culture in India is also actively importing foreign influences into their expansive sphere. Here are the five most luxurious Mumbai restaurants representing different flavors from around the globe:
Indigo. This restaurant is a popular bistro for a wide range of national VIP's - from politicians to Bollywood celebrities. Indigo is known for its post-modern minimalist interior design. This restaurant serves a broad variety of European and Asian dishes. One of its catchiest features is the Black Lounge, a discreet adult function hall. Indigo is open from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM for lunch and 7:00 PM to 12:00 PM for dinner.
The Dome. Situated on the top deck of the Intercontinental Hotel, this restaurant offers a breathtaking vista of the Arabian Sea and the urban sprawl skirting along the coastline. From 5:30 PM to 1:30 PM, the Dome already serves its finest selection of cocktails and liquors.
Wasabi by Morimoto. Within the broad-range of Mumbai restaurants that specialize in Japanese cuisine, none has surpassed the Wasabi by Morimoto in terms of popularity. This luxury bistro in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel caters to the highly privileged citizens and big-spending tourists in the city. Wasabi opens from 12:30 PM to 2:45 PM by lunch and 7:00 to 11:45 PM by dinner.
China House. Anyone looking for exquisite quality Chinese food should look no further than the posh bistro located at East Santacruz district. Apart from Chinese cuisine, this restaurant is best known for its quality music scene and cozy late night ambiance. China House is open from 10:00 PM to 3:00 AM.
Olive Bar & Kitchen. Considering the wide scope of Indian cuisine in Mumbai, catering one's Mediterranean taste buds would be challenging. But if there is one place in this city that offers excellent quality Italian, Greek, and even Lebanese fares, the Olive Bar & Kitchen is the best destination there is.
