Punjabi Food Like Never Before

Never been to this place, as it isn't the kind of place one would want to sit in, but have ordered for food like a million times. If you want to eat authentic Punjabi food, this is the place you can rely on. Haven't tried anything from the Vegetarian section of their Menu except for their 'Chole-Bhature' Combo Meal. You can choose to have your Chole with Puris, Bhaturas, a variety of Kulchas or Parathas, just for a 110 Bucks! Their Chicken Gravies are simply delicious. My personal favourite has always been their Chicken Lajawab. Other than that their Chicken Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken(slightly sweeter than usual) are good options too. Another good thing about them is that they are willing to turn all their chicken gravies 'boneless' for extra 20 Bucks, which comes as a boon for people like me who absolutely hate the bones getting in the way of eating tasty food. I always order for their Makai Roti and Onion Kulcha to go with my Chicken.
Also, if you are a diehard Kebab fan, you would be glad you visited this place. All of their kebabs are luscious, juicy and full of flavour, not to mention perfectly charred. Opt for their Reshmi Kebab, Pahadi Kebab or Garlic Kebab and you won't be disappointed. The Kebabs come with a spicy-tangy Mint

Punjabi Food Like Never Before!

Never really been to this place, as it’s like one of those simple places with plastic chairs and tables, but have ordered for food like a million times. If you want to eat authentic Punjabi food, this is the place you can rely on. Haven't tried anything from the Vegetarian section of their Menu except for their 'Chole-Bhature' Combo Meal. You can choose to have your Chole with Puris, Bhaturas, a variety of Kulchas or Parathas, just for a 110 Bucks! Their Chicken Gravies are simply delicious. My personal favourite has always been their Chicken Lajawab. Other than that their Chicken Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken(slightly sweeter than usual) are good options too. Another good thing about them is that they are willing to turn all their chicken gravies 'boneless' for extra 20 Bucks, which comes as a boon for people like me who absolutely hate the bones getting in the way of eating tasty food.

Opt for their Reshmi Kebab, Pahadi Kebab or Garlic Kebab and you won't be disappointed. The Kebabs come with a spicy-tangy Mint & Coriander Chutney and a Fresh Cabbage-Carrot-Onion Salad as accompaniments.
Downtown Dhaba also includes Sarso Da Saag in their Menu during winters, which sadly not many places serve. And even though they serve Chinese, please make sure never to order it, as I feel it would be an insult to their specialty cuisine. Also, who knows what it might taste like?

Urban Dhaba

My dad and me just happened to pass that lane (immediate left of vijay sales) at prabhadevi when we noticed this eatery joint 'Downtown Dhaba'. Its a very small place run by a sardar which probably has just about 4 to 5 tables. And to my surprise i see its written partially AC while i was wondering where the AC is.

Certainly not a place to sit with family so we decided to call for it at home. We ordered for paneer chutney kebabs, hara bhara kebab, dal makhani, hyderabadi chicken biryani and veg raita.

The paneer chutney kebab was just delicious. Melted in your mouth literally and thankfully was not spicy (since i forgot to mention not to make it very spicy). On the other hand hara bhara kebab was just about okay. Strangely i found that slightly spicy and was garnished with capsicum and peas. Coming from a punjabi family i have grown up on dal makhani. Definitely not the same. Had a very peculiar taste which i didnt really like and being a sardar's dhaba this was a big let down. Coming to the Hyderabad Biryani, I have never ever tasted one before so dont know how a typical hyderabadi biryani tastes and being a biryani lover i decided to try it. I quite liked it out here. Was spicy but with veg raita it went quite well.

The food quantity isnt bad here and a meal per person could cost anywhere between Rs 200 - 250 which is quite decent on the pocket.

Bad Food Created By Mad Sardar

The place itself is pathetic and to spice it up, an excellent menu of worst dishes. It seems they forgot how to cook food. Was better in later nintees, but now yaaaaaks. And they keep on increasing the price on monthly basis. Their tandoori tastes like plain chicken masala. The owner will keep on saying much about his quality, praising all his kitchen staf but once you have the food you will swear not to come back.

New Years Worst Restaurant Ever ---- 06-01-2012

This place is not only the ugliest place to eat but also the owner is the rudest Sikh u'll ever find. He personally thinks that he's doing a favour by sending /delivering the food.Food is not that great, U can find better food at Prabhadevi "Homedeli" restaurant which is good for veg and non-veg.
Please see the place where the food is cooked, its more un-hygenic than what we can imagine. Please do not go in for Veg food here as its not good at all.....
All in all a worst experience not to be repeated again......
GUYS I BEG AND REQUEST YOU ALL NOT TO GO FOR THIS DHABA AT AL...STREET FOOD LYK VADA PAV IS BETTER THAN THIS DHABA. WHEN I CALLED THE OWNER TO COMPLAINT ABOUT HIS FOOD HE REPLIED NEXT TYM DON'T ORDER FROM HERE AND STARTED GIVING BAD WORDS MC, BC TO A GIRL. WASTE OF MONEY
HOME DELI THE BEST PLACE FOR VEG AND NON VEG

Worst Experience til date!!! 6/1/2012

The food was pathetic...infact pathetic is a very small word to state the level of our misery that came on us after eating this food. We threw almost everything we had ordered. The rotis and parathas were either half cooked or burnt. The vgetables and chicken both had only colours and masala and no taste at all. A complete dismal experience...When we called back the dhaba to inform of the quality of food...he started giving bad words....Most horrible food evr...

Shame

THis place is not only the ugliest place to eat but also the owner is the rudest Sikh u'll ever find. He personally thinks that he's doing a favour by sending /delivering the food. Please do not go by the ment given here as this dates back to 2007 and neither the rates are applicable nor the menu holds good. Food is not that great, U can find better food at Bandra Station "yaadgar" restaurant at a much cheaper price and a cheerful server.
Please see the place where the food is cooked, its more un-hygenic than what we can imagine. Please do not go in for Veg food here as its not good at all.....
All in all a worst experience not to be repeated again......
Would wish some one would pass an info about another non-veg joint on similar lines from where one cud order food in Dadar (w) near Shivaji Park...

the ugliest place to eat

If you even want to commit suicide then you dont need to do some kind of research of how should you do it. Just order or inface visit this place and have food. Once you visit this place you will be half dead. and the rest would follow once you eat his food. And the owner is a dreadfull punjabi who would be soon kicked out from that place as the entire area would soon be renovated and we would get a good restuarant which would be far more better than this pathetic place.

Worst Ever Experience!

It was my most harrowing experience to have called for food from this restaurant.It was a saturday night.My family goes out for dinner on most saturday nights,but that night as we were tired,we decided to call for food from this place which is very close to our place.
We called for Veg Sheekh kabab,paneer tikka,veg makhanwala ,veg biryani & rotis.
Firstly the food arrived after 1 hr 10 mins.The delivery boy was rude when asked why did it take such a long time when my place is only 200 mts away.
Then when we were checking the parcel,we realized that the quantity was very very pathetic.Specially the Veg sheekh kabab & paneer Tikka.It was 6 really really tiny pieces and the same with paneer tikka.When the boy was asked as to why this Qty is so less,he had no answer.He clearly said,in a very rude tone,talk to my Boss.
I personaly thought that it was be good to go sown personaly and tell the owner abt the qty and his delivery boy about the service so that he can work on it in the future.
What followed was a nightmare.The owner of this place was so ARROGANT that it was a shattering experience.He told me that people pay 300 Rs in big restaurants for this small Qty and that i should never call for food from his place.I was shattered.This man was so full of arrogance that i for the first time in my life was taken back.Either this man was frustrated in life or he did not care what his customer had to say.I was speechless.I left that Sheekh kabab & paneer tikka on his table and left.He did not even bother to replace it or anything.Where on earth would you find such rude behaviour? If only there was some kind of consumer protection against such restaurant owners.
When i got back home ,we started with the food and trust me when i say without being biased that the quality of food was not good at all.The Oil and his preparation was very down town.I suffered from throat infection the following day.
It was my family's worst ever experience.
I hope my review will help people from avoiding this place.
Have a nice day,
Pramod Hrissh

one shop Dhaba

My husband & i were in prabhadevi 2 days back on work, when we realised our stomachs were talking n growling.To my luck,since prabhadevi is not much of a foodie place that i know off, at last i had the excuse to try out this dhaba.Luckily i had a driver that day cos theres no much parking space n its a tow away zone.

I stood in front of downtown wondering why did he call it a dhaba.....well the approach to the place is shabby n so is the ambience (there wasnt any ambience infact!!).But jus like all foodies belief its d food n not the ambience that matters. Not suitable for classy foodies.

Jus 4 tables placed, I was a little hesistant to enter, but the reviews of fellow burrpers gave me confidence to go ahead.A dark kitchen with gud no. of cooks at work, as i write this review i sit back to think if these cooks were worth trusting.....cos they kept chopping n chopping.

The owner gave us the menu n we were amazed at the variety n prices.Without scrutinising the place further I ordered for rajma masala, dal tadka,chkn kadai, jeera rice n rotis. After contemplating i decided to order for sweet lassi......delicious thick lassi. Food was homely not typical in restaurants.Flavour of Chicken kadai n buttery rajma was yummy....

Damage for 2 was 280/- A lot of office staff have lunch here.His shop next door specialises in chinese cuisine My husband was suprised tht he nevr knew of this place before.

Its a gud place to stop for a quick meal....not a run after kind of place.
Though apprehensive in the begining, I walked out of the dhaba happy n content. My mission was accomplished as a FOODIE.........No regrets!!!

Chak de phatte!

The food here is yummy to say the least. Its a small dhaba which serves authentic punjabi food & chinese food. I havnt tasted d chinese food here but d punjabi food here is mind blowing..everything is so very tasty! Yesterday I had rumali roti, chicken tikka, mutton biriyani & butter chicken from here. The total bill (for 3 ppl) came upto Rs280 only...total value for money.

If u dont wanna dine over here..u cud tell em to home deliver d food..they charge an xtra of only 5 bucks as delivery charge.

Great dhaba food

On the rare occasion that we have time for a relaxed lunch at work and the weather isnt oppressively sweaty, we head towards Downtown Dhaba to treat ourselves.

This place is run by a surdi uncle aunty duo who treat us with with good fresh parental love and fresher white butter... just like the stuff u get in any dhaba in punjab...

The food is simple and tasty... hot crisp tandoori rotis, with steaming yellow daal and freshly cooked veggies.... or some succulent chicken tikka if you please...

and on request they give u a small, but satisfying bowl of white butter... yummm!!! and to wash it down therez the option of light masala chaas or sinfully thick sweet lassi...

the location isnt great... and for the hoity toity types the place is a tad grimy... but the food makes up for all those flaws...

a meal for 4 - 5 rarely goes above 300 - 400 bucks so its filling for the tummy and doesnt empty the wallet...

tho this isnt a place i'd travel far and wide for... for an afternoon with no work, its perfect!
