Best Indian Restaurant
I have been going here since I was a kid. Cant get enough of this place its my preferred restaurant for Indian food which is simply delicious. The roomali roti is the best in mumbai.
The gravy's are very nice towards d sweeter side but still yumm.
One should try the Chello rice (Sweetened rice with cream) goes very well with the Veg Shaslik. However, the same is not on the menu now. But they give you if you ask them to.
First time at the Copper Chimney
It was pure chance that my American boss decided to show up for a project and was in Mumbai for a week. Being his first visit to India, he wanted to try "authentic Indian food" and I couldn't think of a better place than the Copper Chimney!
We showed up for dinner at around 9ish and dove straight into the menu ordering a Rann and some kebabs. The food did take some time but the wait was totally worth it! After about an hour of hogging on the amazing starters and the main course, we decided to have the dessert too (which was totally a good idea!)
Absolutely a good experience for a food junkie and a great place to get a real taste of India!
have been going here since I've been a child. The Indian food is simply delicious. The roomali roti is the unique thing to eat here as it's made in front of your eyes. Avoid going here on Sundays as it is very crowded. It is located in multiple cities and yet maintains it's taste and quality everywhere.Ambience and staff were the same. My experince here was all in all top notch.
Great Family Dining
Copper Chimney has been very prominent since years for its great food and good service. Having visited this place for and number of times have never had a chance to complaint about the quality of food ever. The Sunday Brunches are the most enjoyable with a great variety leaving you full but still wanting more.
If you want to rely on good food and a nice pleasant atmosphere this is the place to be. The veg and non veg delicacies are as good as they can be. Be it the chicken or paneer. No one beats copper chimney when you want a restaurant which can be relied upon
best north indian food in mumbai
I have been to their other branches , tried lots of tandoori chicken in other restauraunts but feel this is the closest I can get to the good quality tandoori available in Delhi .The tandoori chicken melts in the mouth , it has no red colour (most of the restaurants put some strange red colour in the tandoori chicken which I hate).The butter chicken and garlic naan are a must haves...
Copper is gold
Yes! the name is copper but its value is gold.
i visited this place twice specially for buffet lunch and once with my clients.
the ambience is awesome. Food is as always mouth watering. I love the meat, fish and desserts. The service is best.
the place is very hygienic and the menu selection is suited for all food lovers. Pricing is average.
overall its a gold experience and offcourse it glittera. I love this place. I would like to visit this place again with my loved one.
Total Value for Money
Chello Kebab, Raan, Butter Chicken, Romali Roti, Makai Malai Seekh, Bagani Bahar (tandoor chicken marinated in green masala) etc. etc. If its Indian, it must be Worli Copper Chimney. The lunch buffet is also total value for money and very good for a quick meal. Their dahi chutney goes well with everything and always start with a Crispy Roomali Roti.
I call it vintage because this is one of the restaurants I have grown up looking at as its very close by from where I stay. Today Copper Chimney has emerged as a brand name by having multiple outlets in malls. But this outlet in Worli is really a Family Place. You'll Always big or small family groups enjoying their meal. The space is big and very well made off and maintained for all these years. Each and every item in the menu tastes superb. One can never get bored by going here again & again. An advise for anyone planning to visit this place is that "book your table in advance" even if you are going on a weekday. As it is so full always. And also they follow two shifts reservation for dinner i.e. from 8pm to 10 pm and the other is 10pm onwards.
Worli outlet better than others
At first glance, it looks like a refurbished palace with modern seating arrangements and a quick menu read may make you feel that the damage is going to be a little more than anticipated. However, once you've had a stomach-full of its ambrosial offerings, you'd be delighted to know that it's actually come out to be cheaper. The Worli outlet is known to be better than the other outlets, for sure.
traditions never go wrong
26 yrs and the taste is just the same.. I'm going to the worli outlet from its first space to now occupied lotus court..copper chimney is just the same..brass bells copper vessels on wall decor .. Paneer tikka veg makhani and roomali roti..no change in my order same taste over the years and I go back again n again to relive my childhood and relish my taste..
Lunch Buffet only!
Copper Chimney at Worli has the best Indian lunch buffet - by a mile. You just cannot go wrong at this place (well, maybe except for the reservation process). The lavish spread is ALWAYS top notch, especially on sundays. The live chat counters, the salad bar, the kebabs, the biryani, the main course are all brilliant and better than any 5 star hotel offering. The desserts are the best part and we always leave content.
For the price, this place is a wonderful deal, which is why this place is ALWAYS FULL.
Average Seating...good food
I have had a lot of buffet lunches at copper chimney worli however i would rate it just about good.
For the reputation it posesses the ambience is strictly ok.The tables are very cramped and the salad table in the centre isnt very comforting.Copper chimneys buffet spread looks more out of a north indian wedding spread which has been ravaged by some 20 diners already. The presentation is good to start with but they do not refill properly and the frequency of refil of the breads is abysmally low.
The biggest let down for me is the Dal makhani. For its reputation copper chimneys dal is very pedestrian. The paneer dishes are good and as they should be , but they are superbly oily and very heavy.If they say that their dal is simmered overnight i seriously doubt their definition of Dal or their duration of night.
The overall feeling after the buffet is not of satisfaction but of bloating which should not be the case.I would rate copper chimney equal to jewel of india in terms of its buffet only difference being copper chimney does not use "averaged" out gravy.
I am convinced that the ala carte food at copper chimney would be better.However the true test for a joint of this repute is to replicate the small portion to the larger size with minimal dilution of taste.
Overall copper chimnet , worli is good but not exceptional.....you will come out with a feeling that you have had the same taste somewhere before
Good Indian Food
A favorite as a child, I ate at Copper Chimney after nearly 12 years and still loved it. We went on a Sunday at 8 pm and the place was packed. Definitely recommend reserving a table. The mutton sheekh kebab was simply superb. Also recommend the achari tikka and the chello kebab. Its good to see a restaurant maintain its quality of food and service for such a long time.
Very good Indian cuisine and variety!!
Well if you love the fine Indian Cuisine specifically the North Indian food - I wont say Punjabi cause that over used & misused - do go to this place. I especially love their mushrooms starters..its absolutely brilliant and something you wont find at other restaurants and hotels.
Since this place is quite close to Corporate offices, its always crowded. So please time your visit. Their lunch and dinner menus are excellent and almost all dishes have good taste and preparation style. They do serve buffet and are open to corporate discounts as well.
The setting is close to Haji Ali and that makes it even more special!! Do go with friends and family!!!
Love the buffet
Have visited this place recently a couple of times for the buffet. They have wide variety of food kept both veg and non veg along with live chat counter, at times a pasta counter. The food undoubtedly matches the Copper Chimney standards and doesnt disappoint. The salads and all other items on the menu are really good. For A la carte, the service tends to be a little slower than expected by the food makes up for it and by the end of it, you end up coming out satisfied. Again, if youre around and looking for a good place to have lunch, there is no other option like the buffet here.
great punjabi food
I have been to the Coppoer Chhimmney at Worli several times as our office was just opposite the place and we did not have an elaborate cafeteria. so any visitor and the quickest place to go was Copper Cnimmney. i have eaten both at their buffet and a la carte also. their crisp roomali roti was a novelty (though now available at several places) and you will see it on most tables. food is generally good and it fills a niche between the fine dining places and ordinary eating places
Originally, I wasn't expecting to order a buffet. During the waiting time, I took a look at the food. The menu wasn't that well organized, and there wasn't many Jain Vegetarian options. We took a look at the buffet, and in the vegetarian section, only some of it was Jain. They were willing to make changes and give us the Jain subji for the buffet price. Their Chaat was excellent, so if you do go there be sure to try it. The desserts were nice. The food was nice but I think less paneer dishes would have been better.
I recommend, on weekends, to make reservations before you go. The waiting is tremendous. My experience? We waited for around 30 minutes. The restaurant was full as well as the waiting space. The person working there told us there was a 5 minute wait. I was not pleased when our waiting time exceeded 10 minutes. When we went to complain, they just said, "Sorry, sir." Not the best service. When we were sitting at our table (finally!), no one came to attend us. We said excuse me several times, no one comes. We had to raise our hands in the air and wave them several times before anyone came. Not the best place for Service.
Nice place, no complains there. Except one. The TV had bad signal. No biggie.
When I came to Copper Chimney a couple years ago, buffet was cheaper. Now it is aroung 750 rupees. Okay price. Not the best, again.
I would recommend this place for the lovely food. Happy Eating!
Love this place
Copper chimney is one restaurant that i have been going since i was a kid.. Any occasion at home and Copper Chimney it was. Totally live the food here. I specially like its chicken biryani and dal makhani. Can completely live on it. Everyday, for lunch therr is buffet which is also really good. Their buffers generally have lit of varieties so for foodies its a bliss.
complete family fine dine experience
the USP of this place is the best north indian dishes served as it is in taste since years...another unique thing about this place is the open kitchen...the tandoor and the sanjha chulah which are visible and can see the cooks producing the best food for our taste buds...the paneer dishes are a real treat...melts and now my mouth is watering tooo...the chicken here is also very tenderly cooked...a complete eating experience...the hospitality commendable...this 1 at worli is the oldest branch of copper chimney and the best one.
What is the Deal here?
I have been to this place 4-5 times and every time I have experienced different emotions. only 1 emotion is consistent-relief, that I never had to pay the bill :D
Okay, beginning from the ..err...beginning.
My uncle lives in delhi and makes a trip to Mumbai for business meetings every 6 months or so and he does not have anything outside except Indian dishes or chicken at KFC. Now my family is strict vegetarian and we refuse to step inside KFC (we don't like the face of that creepy old guy in red and white-seriously, he gives me nightmares) so basically every time he is in town we have to go to an Indian restaurant and for some strange reason he likes this place. So invariably we end up here.
We don't mind going here. It is a famous place with great ambiance. The interiors are very royal, the servers are very polite and well-trained and the seating is awesome, I love how we are able to catch up on all the family gossip even in the middle of the restaurant :D
Cleanliness, service quality, ambiance, seating, everything is top notch. Then where is the problem, you ask?
Food my darlings, FOOD.
Every single time we have ordered for 4-5 dishes (Uncle and I are ravenous elephants when it comes to food) and every single time these guys have managed to botch up at least 1 dish. The first time, uncle had achari chicken tikka in appetizer and he sent it back because according to him it was the exact opposite of what it was supposed to taste like (I don't know what was wrong because obviously I did not taste it). Since that day, he has not called for another non-veg thing here. The next time we were here I called for vegetable jhalfrezi because it is supposed to be spicy and mom wanted that. Lord knows what was presented to us, it was spicy all right but we couldn't understand where were the vegetables? It was like drinking slushy liquid spice water with some chunks of alien goo floating inside! Another time we had Tandoori Shashlik as appetizer and it was completely bland. And finally they messed up something as basic as kadhai paneer!!! There were about 4 pieces of paneer in there and they too did not feel properly cooked! How can anyone mess that up??? To top it all, the last time we were here it took them 40 minutes to bring our order-40 Freaking Minutes!!! We had so much time we gossiped about our whole freaking village right back to our great-grandparents' generation before our food made an appearance!
Thank Lord that the rest of the dishes have been okay. My mom keeps ordering for roomali roti and loves it here as does my sis. I like the Tandoori roti, naan and even the veg biryani is quite good. The one staple I always order is Malai Kofta because I have such a sweet jaw I need something sweet every time I eat :D My uncle likes veg Makhanwala and sticks to that. the portions are just about okay. Well, this place is one of the fine dine ones so I guess I really can't complain, but I wish the portions were a little bit more generous.
I don't grudge the fame this place enjoys but I wish they would concentrate on the quality of food because it's the food that matters the most, right?
Best buffet lunch of Mumbai
Love the chaats,salads , starters ... Gravies,breads....desserts...actually everything.
Order a pint of beer & the food will taste even better
Their black dal is legendary
The kebabs are to die for
Service is what u get at 5 star hotels..lovely hospitality.
Have grown up eating their food & it tastes even better now than before
Feel like a king dining in a palace !!
Very Bad Experience with food
Though the service and ambiance of the Copper Chimney restaurant at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon east was good , the quality of food (veg) was very poor. From the taste of the food it was clear that the food served was not at all fresh. The naan was stretchy and the currys served lacked taste. It was a very bad experience in all, never going back again.
Somehow couldn't match up to the standards
Copper Chimney is supposed to be "The most famous" restaurant when it comes to North Indian cuisine. I have been to this place before and had loved it ; which is why decided to take some of our guests to this place recently.
Food here was quite disappointing as compared to my last visit. The rotis and naans were cold and chewy. The vegetables that we ordered were not that great and the pulav was also very average which was not expected by them.
Service was also not good. We had to wait for a long time to get a waiters attention and he even goofed up one of our orders which is again not expected from these guys.
Had really thought that we would come out with smiling faces and a full stomach, but somehow that feeling didn't come to us at the end of our meal. I am hoping that this was just a one off bad day. However, I would definitely think twice before going to Copper Chimney again.
Our forced choice..
We headed out to Atria Mall to Don Giovanni for an Italian fiesta last sunday evening later to realize this outlet has been shut. So copper chimney came as an alternate just to save on further travel time.
The place was decently crowded with not much waiting time. Managed to get into a sofa set-up at the corner. Liked the seating as it separated us from the noisy crowd.
It took 2 reminders for the server for water. Looking at the fellow reviews, I echo the serious complaint of waiters' lax serving.
Roomali was under roasted. Lachcha Paratha was the respite. Dal was the life saver.
The so called corn mushroom white gravy was disastrous. spoiled my taste buds. baby a loo with mint marination was Dud. So a neutral experience.
To sweet it up, we went for the dessert round - basundi with vermicelli (Cop Chim special) was huh!! I don't know how does roasted crunchy seviya go with basundi.
Rasmalai was no sweeter.
Overall for the price, the experience was not worth it.
A good experience always
Have been to his restaurant a number of times. What I always end up eating is the Murg Musallam. It is chicken, minced lamb, mushrooms served on a bed of rice. Totally yummy! And they serve roomali rotis (you can see them making those too).
I also liked the chicken achari kabab. Succulent, tangy. Tickles the taste buds. This time, we tried the Dum Biryani. The aroma of the biryani! Mouthwatering! And it tasted as good as it looked. We tried the veg biryani too - which was great! And some paneer gravy dish (don't remember which - was more interested in the chicken) - which was decent.
I only wish they had more options in the dessert menu. That would make it just perfect!
Fine Dining at its Best!
I have been to various restaurants over the years but only realized the true meaning of "Fine Dining" after I visited Copper chimney at Worli. The ambience scores a perfect ten (or 5 stars in this review). The service although slow was very courteous and helpful. The food was excellent except for the Roomali Rotis which were not soft enough. The prices were actually lower than I expected!
This is a restaurant where you don't just walk in without booking a table. So there is no question of waiting. Unlike other restaurants which despite accepting bookings/reservations don't actually reserve tables but only give you preference while allotting a table when it becomes vacant, Copper chimney actually reserves tables so you don't have to wait for one! They don't even try to hurry you after you've finished your meal. As with most restaurants, valet parking is available. So I would give it 4 or 4.5 stars out of 5. The only caveat is that being a vegetarian, I only tried the veg stuff!
Be prepared to wait...wait and wait...
There are three most important elements for an eatery to please people....Food, Service and Ambiance. This place wins hands down as far as food is concerned....but their service is so poor that it leaves no stone upturned in spoiling the fun. The haughty arrogant waiters don't care about the way they serve food on your table or how long they are just chatting ignoring your calls for menu/ order! The ambiance is average...nothing extra ordinary or eye catching. The place was buzzing with people and so there was a lot of noise and chattering....so if you are looking for a quiet dinner, then this is not the place to be. Coming back to food, their "crispy roomali roti" is something that titillates all your taste buds and leaves you longing for more. Other than that they have a routine menu, but the preparation of almost everything is excellent. Another good thing is that they have quite a few choices for veggies too. So I guess its the best place for take aways rather than eat-ins.
Punjabi Food Festival
For those who are looking forward for the punjabi food festival - vegetarians - forget about it, bare nay options. The regular menu is way better...nothing as "punjab" special added to it. And along with the bad menu the poor service still continues... after my first experience i decided not to go again, but stil thought let me give one more try - the second trial made me sure - NEVER STEP IN AGAIN!!
good food - worst service
landed up for dinner after a good comedy stand up and hence we had patience to accept such sucking service...the effect of good laugh buster helped us to live through it... no doubt the food was good but rest everything was crab... the onion seemed to be at least 3 days old..shabbily cut..not washed...even they didn't have proper dish to serve in...i had the Veg Briyani..i must say it was finger licking good...rest of group ordered for variety of non-veg and everybody appreciated it... so all iu have to say for anyone who wanna step in...please good with a prepared mind of bad-slow-lazy-drowsy-sucking service
A Big Disappointment!
I regularly visit copper chimney for dinners. I had a heard a lot about its buffet and gave it a try this sunday. The buffet spread was very limited, with only one chicken starters, i could have been paying 700 per person any where else and getting much better food. The chaat was awful, and the biryani tasteless. Copper chimney food which usually very very good, lacked presentation, taste and variety. The service was exceptionally bad, and as we having our buffet, and we had not even finished, the steward came with the check. They were clearing our table without permission. I have been to a lot of buffets, but this is the first time i experience such bad service, and cheap behavior. All in all a buffet you can happily miss. Keep that money In your pocket and go to a better place. I also complained to the manager but they did not really care much. Not expected from copper chimney. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!
Ahh the good stuff
Firstly, the food, it is amazing. Fulfilling in all its capacity and one of the tastiest in town. Try the copper chimney specials, they are pretty good.
But the chicken is grilled and is so soft, it melts in your mouth.
The ambience is pretty good coupled with a very efficient and polite staff.
It is a bit costly and is a place to go with your family or friends but the cost is totally worth it.
Go here and enjoy the chicken.
PS: Don't miss the crispy romali roti , order it with the starters, it is divine.
I went with my hubby to copper chimney( fort) on Sunday night i.e. 20th Jun,2010 for the first time and decided not to go again due to what we experienced..I was first of all shocked to see flies and rat around. The food was served not by the waiter but by a guy who was in blue shirt looking after I guess(?) the overall management of the restaurant.He seem to be confused with a pen, pad and food in hand at the same time. He served us in such a hurry that half of it spilled on the table. It looked as though we came there to eat for free and he wanted us to leave as soon as possible. further while we were still sitting on the table waiting for the bill, the waiter came and started winding up the table by removing table cloth, napkins etc.. which was embarrassing.. We love exploring new places but I admit this is the worst eatery place...
Very Bad Service!
Until yesterday, I had a good opinion of Copper Chimney, having visited it many years ago. However, my experience there yesterday was so harrowing that I don't think I will ever go there again. Firstly, we had to wait for about half an hour to get a place (for 4), but that is to be expected on a crowded Sunday evening.
Anyway, getting a place was the smallest of the issues we faced. After that, we had to wait for a long time for EVERYTHING - from getting our orders (including simple ones like additional rotis) to getting the glasses of water refilled. And by the time the rotis were served, they had gone cold. The dishes (veg seekh kabab, subz handi and kadai paneer, i think) were strictly OK. I am not sure if the non-veg dishes are any better, but the service in any case is among the worst I have ever seen. Add to that the snooty attitude of the staff, and you have a place you would never want to go to, even for the nice ambience and decor.
Seems like the Future Group's acquisition has had its negative impact on what was probably one of the better restaurants in Mumbai once upon a time.
One of Mumbai's best value-for-money buffets! At Rs 445 per head, all inclusive, it is value for money and how! The salad bar is outstanding!! And so is the chaat-counter. The ragda pattice is really yum! The soup, entrees amd dessert are all good!! And even though the restaurant gets jam-packed during lunch time, the waiters manage to pay proper attention to every table.
Will definitely go again :)
Great Indian Restaurant!
My first experience with Copper Chimney was in Bahrain. I was with my colleague from England and we just loved the food there. I have also visited Copper Chimney in Muscat, Oman during my business trip there. It was great. I arrived in Mumbai and I was looking for Copper Chimney and there it was at Worli. Same great food, very good service and very clean. You can basically view the kitchen through a glass wall. They wear gloves and chef caps. It's hard to find a clean restaurant in India with hygiene in mind but Copper Chimney mantains it's standard like it's chains in other countries. Might be a little on the expensive side but coming from America this restaurant is much cheaper than the regular Indian restaurants in the US whcih are not half as good. and clean. I give a thumbs up to Copper Chimney in Mumbai at Worli.
Ordinary far below expected!!!
Hey before i offend anybody I would like to mention for the prices they charge they are just damn expensive and reaping the fruits of they're name. We ordered prawns and pahadi kebab as starters they were decent, but the main course was unimpressive and just ordinary, service was good initially but started falling apart when the restaurant started filling up.This restaurant actually has snob value more than good food.
We had been there recently. The food quality is ok but the service is pathetic, disgusting and worst than that.
If you still happen to be there just enjoy the food without any service expectation. Also never commit a blunder of ordering any dessert so that you could cherish the taste of food at least for sometime after having left the place.
Very Nice Buffet
Went there last Sunday for the Buffet. It was like going down emory lane. I used to frequent CC and also Bombay Brasserie years ago. Had done booking before. Got place at the right time. The spread is too good. The chicken Badami was something to die for. The chic. Tikkas must have been marinated for hours. They were fantastic. Desserts were a little disappointment ...but what the hell. At Rs 445 its a steal. Go there ASAP.
Great food ... consistently
Have been to the Worli Copper Chimney multiple times now, so thought it deserved a review. Have dined here both for buffet lunch as well as dinner. Good variety, very good food, and consistent quality. There is plenty of seating but weekends get booked very fast. If you are looking for a safe bet, especially if you have a visitor in town, this is a no brainer!
aromas of india
For people who have never been to this place,let me tell you it is the only mecca for good indian food. Nice and bright interiors, very warm staff and the food is everthing you would kill for.
I do not know where to start, but the mouthwatering paneer tikkas, veg makhanwala, chana peshawari, dal makhani, is all to die for.
do not forget, the burnt chili cheese nan and the famous kabuli naan for people who like a sweet dry fruit loaded naan.
Last but not the least, the phirni at this place is nowhere available in India.
Take yourself out tonite, give yourself a treat , but do not forget to reserve a table.Good food makes you wait longer.
Great Indian Food
Copper Chimney at Worli is a well-known place for anyone in this city. I have travelled all the way from Andheri to Worli even though I know that they have a branch in Andheri East, thanks to the good food they offer.
Located just beyond Atria Mall and Poonam Chambers the place has crowd primarily from South Mumbai and nearby areas. So to say, the crowd coming in is really good.
It is advisable to call them and make a reservation for your table if it is a weekend - failure to do which will result in a lot of waiting time.
Ambience is really good - particularly on the first floor. The restaurant has an open tandoor where you can see the rotis being made. The restaurant is bright and well lit and seating is comfortable as well.
Food is really good here with the best of curries and rotis. Soup for the starters is nice, but there are only 3 flavours. One cannot dig the menu to chose. Starters are nice. Specially the Chutney served with Papad is really good.
The place is known for its Kabuli Naan and Roomali Rotis.
However, the Kadhai Paneer here is too sweet. It is nothing but pieces of Paneer put in Tomato Puree. When complained about the same the captain told that it tastes sweet and customers like us want spicy. He promptly took it back and added some spices but it still did not taste too good.
Having said that, the black Dal here is just awesome.
All time favorite!
This has to be my all time favorite restaurant. I have been frequenting CC since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I remember that I used to be fascinated watching the guy flip roomali rotis in the air in the open kitchen. I still love the roomali rotis here and the chicken and the dessert!
A must visit place if you want good food and service that you can count on!
I had a good opinion about Copper Chimney until the shocker I received on Mar 11, 2009 (Holi.) I was treating a few guests there, so made a reservation on Mar 9 (1150hrs) itself, over phone. The call made from my landline was to Ph: 24920505. Upon, going to the restaurant at about 1245hrs on Mar 11, my name couldnt be found in the register. That was strange because the person who made the reservation even gave me the time of 1310 hrs when asked for 1330 hrs, took my mobile no, name, no. of people etc. I told them about all that had transpired during the conversation. After which, both the Maitre d and his assistant started telling me that it often happened that people make reservation at their other branches assuming that it was the one at Worli. When asked for the no. called, I could only recall that the number started with 2249 when it was 2492 since I neither commited the number to memory nor had it in my mobile; the maitre ds assistant was quick to point out that it was wrong. My guests did arrive at 1310 hrs, had to wait for some more time only to be given a table on the 1st floor! Post-lunch I matched the ph. number on their bill with that in my landline, which was correct!!!
After the harrowing experience & the cold food, I vowed never to visit Copper Chimney again.
Dal Makhani + Roomali Roti = Heaven
Most people would agree that that copper chimney has always been the best at offering mouth watering dal makhani along with some softest roomali rotis.
I visited the worli location after years. It was a wed night and it took 45 mins for us to get a table of 6 despite making reservation. That was the only disappointing part.
Coming to the food - thier chatni and fried roomali (large papad) was excellent. Veg seekh kabab was mediocre but the paneer tikka as a starter was extremely good. nd as expectedly, dal makhani was above par and so was the jalfraize.
All in all, excellent food for a decent price. Meal for 6 without drinks came to 2300.
Fascination for Roomalis
Ever since I can remember, I have spent all my childhood Sunday evenings at Copper Chimney. What used to fascinate me most about Copper Chimney is their kitchen with glass windows - with their chefs tossing the Roomalis till the ceiling. The taste of their Roomalis and Paneer Butter Masala are etched firmly in my taste bads and I pray they never change the preparation. Their Paneer Tikka is also worth dying for. This is the place that drew me to Punjabi/Mughlai food. Also, the other Copper Chimneys around the city don't come remotely close to this one.
An Institution / landmark in "North Indian" food
Being a punjabi myself, I still can't resist the food dished out at Copper Chimney over the decades....the restaurant which has consistently catered to 3-4 generations at a go & won them all over.
Chicken Chop [ their USP], Ab-e-hayat soup, Dum Aloo Kashmiri, Paneer makhni[mussalam], butter chicken, Burrah Chop, chelo kabab, Kadak masala roomali, Dal makhni, Kabuli naan, cheese & garlic naan, Khumb Makai Paneer are my all time favourite dishes on the menu which have been tried & tested repeatedly over the decades.
Not to forget their famous green chutney.....a meal by itself when hogged with papad & onions.
Even though the food is a bit on the sweeter side to cater / appease to the large gujju clientele.
My vote for the best indian restaurant for punjabi / mughlai / North Indian food.
Hell.. i really like this Place !
I dont know why people dont like this restaurant. It think its pretty good. Their buffet is great and there is a good choice for vegetarians !
The Murg Makhani is the best ! I also like the Chello Kebab. I think their show kitchen gives a bit of life to the place !
was there for a late lunch today. wow.
disappointing is the word. There was a 15 min wait for a table but we got a nice one. The place is very well done up. the ambience is superlative, modern and the seating spacious and comfortable.
The staff itself is very much involved in making sure you have a good experience.
We were there for the buffet and man it was half baked, both in quality and quantity.
I usually compare most north indian buffets to the one at Indian Summer who in my opinion have the best offering and services for a buffet.
At the Indian Summer starting out you get pani puri, dahi puri, dosa, soup which is brought to your table.
At the CC yo had to get up and get your one aloo chat (good) and soup (weird) the rest of the food was one kesari paneer (mucho weird)a corn dish (v.good) noodles, fried rice, dal makhani (v.good) along with a selection of salads.
The dessert was ice cream & brownie (good) almond souffle (eww) and some strawberry thing that was bitter.
The damage for 2 buffets + 2 diet pepsi 900 (20$)
At the end of the day the overall experience was pretty weak and i wouldn't recommend the buffet to anyone. Indian Summer is a hands down winner if anyone wishes to lunch buffet style.
An honest opinion about this restaurant is all that I will be giving you right now.
The experience is quite royal and the staff are alert ,hospitable and constantly on their toes to make sure that you are having a great time.
The decor catches your attention as soon as you land here and the seating is extremely comfortable too.
The menu does not have a very large variety but offers some interesting north indian and mughlai dishes.
The aloo chaat served with pudina chitney and spicy chilly pickle was the ideal starter.
For the main course you must try the the veg kheema which is one of the best mushroom creations i have ever come across.The malai kofta and black dal were rich and creamy .The kadhai chicken was tender,fresh and a perfect blend of spices just enough to retain the chickens natural taste.
The roomali roti supplements the dishes as they are very heavy and the serving sizse is also very large.
Overall a very good dinning experience at a moderately high cost.
Excellent service, good ambience ,excellent quantity and good quality can be said.
One of the best places for Indian food!
This is one of the best Copper Chimney's from all it's branches. The best variety of Indian food available. The ambience is very "coppery" (in a good way) and the menu is one of the best I've seen.
The service is excellent with well trained staff.
For lunch they give you an option between buffet and a-la-carte, both of which are worth a try, although I always prefer to order.
To top it all, they can alter the taste of the food as per your request. The average price of a vegetarian dish is Rs.150/- but it's worth it.
You could also opt for the buffet at about Rs.300/- per person.
Classy and very Indian, this is the place to go if you want some good Indian veg/non-veg grub!
