The best place to eat out i've been to in Mumbai.
Ever since i came to Mumbai, I've heard from people about Crystal (Tezaab fame)
Everybody kept saying how great the food is, and how a huge crowd gathers to get an entry into the restaurant.
But its only when you experience it yourself.
Working in Mumbai 14 hours a day, commuting to office, paying 3-4 times for stuff ( a compared to cities like Jaipur where i come from), this surely is a real treat.
Had been to Marine Drive a number of times with my Friends, but never went on to wait in the never ending queue outside Crystal.
Yes, its about a whole kilometer long queue. And about 2-3 KM long queue of Cars.
The enjoyment begins right outside, when you are standing with your gang having fun, joking about how long the wait could be, then having ice cream to kill time.
Finally we you get in, don't let the modest appearance of the joint confuse you, Crystal has been running like this for quite long, and what makes it best is what should -Food.
Once you look at the menu, you need to pinch yourself to believe you are still in Mumbai (yes the prices are so low, i mean really low.).
And the taste is, well amazing, all your desi khana, dal makhani, aloo mutter, palak paneer, (yum yumm........drooling :))
and ya to top it all, we had Fruit cream, and kheer :D. trust me it was the best food i've had in Mumbai, and the only one that satisfied me.
All of us were literally full to the throat and cudnt even walk.
Don't take my word for it, go ahead and grab a bite of the best desi food Mmbai has to offer.
