Now Sit In A/C and Eat Your Kebabs; Review of Bade Miya Restaurant

After casting its magic in Colaba and feeding hungry Mumbaikars for more than 53 years the iconic Bade Miya opens up a two tier Restaurant at Horniman Circle, Fort.

Our extended family of 5 (with some serious appetite) decided to take a shot at this new place.

The ambiance doesn’t disappoint, it’s brightly lit and the walls adorn newspaper and magazine articles clustering its rich history. A winding staircase will take you to the not more than 6’5 feet 2nd level (Do mind your head).

To start we decided to call for single portions of Seekh Kebab and Paneer Tikka. A single portion can serve not more than 3 people. However the portions are quite appropriate for the rates. Going to Bade Miya and not having the Baida Roti will leave you regretting until you drop in the next time. Sip on to your cold drink from the glass bottles through a straw (it doesn’t fail to give you the Colaba bylane feel).  It was difficult to get over the Seekh Kebab so without any hesitation we called for one more portion before moving on to the main course.

For main course vegetarians can choose from Paneer Bhurji, Paneer Makhani, and Dal Fry while for  Non Vegetarians Bheja Fry, Kheema Fry, Butter Chicken are on offer. We decided to stick to Paneer Bhurji and Dal Makhani for the main course. Without a doubt leave space for the Dum Biryani which is their forte and definitely packs a punch!

Shahi Tukda and Phirni are the prime attractions of their Dessert Section. We called for both. While the Shahi Tukda disappoints however the Phirni makes a fitting finale

The staff is quite friendly and helpful in guiding you through the menu. All the preparations are reasonably priced and this restaurant is Here To Stay!!
