Old charm, race course view

I have always liked Gallops. The location is just superb and away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Great selection for food - indian and continental and it also is great value for money. Good, safe and ample parking space as other parts of Mumbai there are hardly any place to park. Good place for cocktails too.

Best Ambiance

The Ambiance is to die for at this place, looks really great from the inside just felt like am in a restaurant in the UK. The food is also good but need to know the right things to order. The price for most of the items on menu is a little on the higher side, but overall a great experience.

Just Perfect

I have been to this place quite a lot of times.
Serves awesome food especially "Nachos" mixed with corn just make it perfect.
A bit expensive but the view during the day as well as late evenings is good.
The service is quick, The waiters are quite polite.
A good place to have hard drinks to but keep in mind the cash you need to carry.

Amazing Ambience ....

I have visited gallops around 3 -4 times but i am reviewing it for one of the best lunches i had over there.

It was a race day where the patrons were sitting at the bar tracking a horse race in Bangalore on the TV screens and encouraging their bet upon horses which were obviously oblivious to the egging .

If you ever visit gallops i implore you and i really do to order just one dish. Their dahi pakora kadhi and their steamed rice.It is one of the best dishes i have had in this city at the most unexpected of places. I cannot associate gallops with kadhi chawal and yet there it is .

The kadhi is heavenly. The dish takes a good 45 minutes to cook as it is done from scratch and boy when they open the kitchen door to bring it in you can smell the kadhi and the basmati from 20 feet. kadhi is not a dish you will find at many restaurants , very few serve it and fewer with pakoras and only a handful know how to make it work.

The kadhi is thick and flavorful. It smells of black cardamom ,cloves ,cinamon and mustard seeds. The pakoras are nice and crispy and do not absorb the kadhi completely and hence do not lose their inherent flavor.The rice is amazingly flavorful and i would not be surprised if it is the dehradun rice whose aroma is worshipped all across.

Overall i would again implore you to try the kadhi at gallops as it is one of the few places which make it and make it right....

Go for the Beautiful view!!

Although Gallops is known for the spectacular view of the racecourse in the early evenings, but the good news is that the food does not take a backseat either.

Food- I had been here for Dinner and the place was packed.... priced just right, the menu largely consists of Indian and Continental Food. The food is flavorsome although nothing very different from what you would get at other Continental places.

Service- Was good.

Nice Ambiance Good Food, But Expensive.

Try to be here in the day time to enjoy the view outside, but even otherwise nicely decorated. Being a vegetarian cannot comment on their vast non-veg section. But I have had the paneer shashlik , cheese fondue, soups, and they were all really delicious. The cutlery they use is worth stating too. Even the customers who usually visit seem to be from the high sections of the society and usually you will not find too much noise or commotion, unless a very big group presents itself. :)

Iced tea made with real tea,half decent steak.

Ok.Now I know Iced tea is hardly a thing to rate a restaurant on the basis of. But...But...heck,they made fresh iced tea. With Tea.Not ready made powder! 50 points! Moving onto food. I had the Swiss steak-medium rare. Stuffed with a lot of cheese which is good.I don't like to read a description and not get all the elements mentioned.So cheese was there in abundance. The cut of beef was also very satisfactory.One grouse though...the sauce was extremely over spiced to suit a steak. This is the first time I've eaten a steak and found the sauce 'spicy', with chilli. It kinda drowned the taste of the beef,cheese,mushrooms,wine et all. A milder brown sauce would do the dish far more justice. At 500 rs,nevertheless,I did enjoy my steak in curry. Sadly I had no place in my stomach for dessert cause the portion is large. I had also ordered garlic bread...which my friends mistook to be dinner rolls...which is exactly what they were...sesame coated dinner rolls served with garlic butter. Not so garlic bread for my liking. The friend who tried Indian was very happy with her methi matar malai and garlic naan. Another friend who ordered a pollo vatican (rs 475) was also happy with her dish. If you order one main per head (Indian or continental) plus a non-alcoholic drink,works out to 600 a head approx. For the ambience and service...I'm happy paying that much. Overall a delightful evening...that ended with a small dose of gelusil for a burning tummy.

Downgrade by two notch

I posted the following review on Nov 10 and gave 5 Stars. However, realised that we had gone in off peak hour. Recently, tried it in peak hour and the service has gone Down drastically. Mess is the right word. Downgrading to 3 stars.

"This would be my fifth or sixth venture to this restaurant which has been there for years. Truly one of the best places in Mumbai for a truly completer dining experience,

Location : In the heart of the city and being part of the race course, the location is by far one of the best you could ask for. What else, despite being in the centre for action has a calm and serene, lush green surrounding - thanks to the adjoining race course. Also, in a materialistic manner, ample parking space with no dependence on valet (meaning less rosk of damage).

Ambience: This place reminds me of a british castle, truly unique interior decor. Entry door carved of a wooden log in a rustic manner and frilled crutains on the windows..and a great view of the race course.

Food: Restaurant is aming the few offering offering both continental as well as Indian food. Both equally tasty and mouth watering. We ordered for traditional paneer tikka and chiken tandoor, Both melting in the mouth and the best one can get. For maiin course, we opted for Tandoori pomfret, lasooni palak, dal fry and zeera aaloo..all the items were freshly prepared with a tinge of difference. We ate, ate and ate..tummy full but 'dil maange more' kind of thingyy...

Go for it, it is one of the best in town.."

Gallops is one place which is the family favourite since my childhood days and now favourite of my children too. The food tastes the same always the good taste is maintained every time we visit. The ambience is so relaxed and the seating comfortable.

GREAT VIEW, GOOD FOOD!!!

Had read quite a few good reviews about this place and had also read about it in magazines which said that this was one of the hotels in mumbai with a good view,and indeed it did turn out to be a place that had a great view and good food!!!.
We went there on a sunday afternoon when it was raining heavily and though we dont stay near by it was all worth travelling this far. The view of the racecourse and the surrounding area was really beautiful with all the clouds coming down and lots of greenery around .
Now for the restaurant itself ,it has a very nice feel to it, lovely ambience, big windows from where one can see outside,comfortable seating and large tables as well for big groups.

Food-
The restaurant offers indian and continental cuisines.
We ordered Naram dil kababs, baby potatoes n mushrooms and chicken grilled ollivette for starters. The grilled chicken was a unique item with a olive stuffed inside but it could have been a little more tender.
We also ordered a few mocktails and a french onion soup,the mocktails were only ok but the soup was nice something different, also the mocktails were slightly more expensive as compared to other items.
For maincourse we had chicken mexicane,pahadi saag bhurji, veg medley and an assorted basket of rotis.

Service-
The staff were also pretty friendly and helpful.

AMBIENCE-4.5/5
FOOD-3.75/5
SERVICE-4/5
VALUE FOR MONEY-4.5/5
The cost per person comes to around rs 600 per person without any alcoholic drinks which is very reasonable .
As we were leaving the restaurant we saw many horses entering the race course area and it was an amazing sight to see so many horses walk one after the other into the racecourse.
The entire afternoon was an amazing experience for all of us.

So ,I think its a place one must visit atleast once as it gives a very different feel of Mumbai ,far away from the regular hustle bustle and crowded restaurants.
Its a place with a serene location ,great view ,good food and an experience to remember.
( I also think its best to visit the resrtaurant during the day to enjoy the view around )

Best Place For A Relaxed Sunday Lunch

Yes, it is. You have to visit in the day time, at night you lose out on it's USP. I agree with most of what malu.aditi (Ambience steals the show ) says, below. Just one word of advice would be to not expect "Cocktails as Amazing as the View"

Ambience steals the show

I have been to gallops more than a couple of times and each time i feel that i should do this more often. The food is good...only good...it doesnt get better but the ambience and the view of the race course just make up for it. They have done the interior with a lot of colonial charm and sophistication and for me somehow it was never too crowded. The menu is a little restricted for veggies. Naram dil kebab and anardana paneer tikka in starters are really something you should definitely try, avoid the utterly disappointing delhi ki khaas tikki...! Their enchiladas are good...somehow in every dish i felt that the quantity was really meagre. Service is good..but contrary to the ambience there was a general lack of sophistication and politeness in waiters. North indian food is average,it would be a good idea to ask them to make your food a little spicy.

Classy as Classy can get

Gallops has a very romantic old feel to it. On the Mahalaxmi race course, it has an awesome ambience, great service and some highly delectable items on the menu. Truly an experience

Attention Chicken Lovers!

Ok, this is one of my favorite places to eat. I judge any place on 4 parameters
1. Food
2. Ambience
3. Service
4. Parking Availability

Food: If there are atleast 2 of you, I suggest you start out with the Chicken liver pate and melba toast. The chicken liver pate is creamy and spreads easily over the crisp melba toast, just right for the main course.

The main course that should not be missed here is the CHICKEN A LA KIEV. Its the best dish in town. Served over a bed of white rice is a crispy brown oval shapped chicken breast which resembles a giant egg. On top of the egg is mashed potatoes and tortilla chips which resembles a bird sitting on the egg. When you cut into the chicken the butter and cheese oozes out onto your rice and when mixed with the creamy white pieces of chicken inside, with the crisp brown texture on the out - makes you feel like heaven.

End with the Chocolate chocolate - chocolate ice cream on a bed of chocolate cake topped with chocolate sauce.

Ambience: As good as any in town. Excellent for a date, for a dinner with friends, only disadvantage is the 8:30 or 10:30 fixed time slots.

Service: The preparation time for the Chicken a la Kiev is around 20-25 minutes, so if you are ordering this, place the order while ordering drinks. You wont have to wait all that long after starters then

Parking: Ample car parking, ladies in high heals be prepared to walk 50 meters over unpaved ground.

Expect to pay around 1200-1500 incl taxes and tips - but trust me, the chicken a la kiev must not be missed here.

Cheers!

Good Food in a Cosy Ambience

I went to Gallops for dinner. Their pleasing ambience has a colonial charm to it. The tables are well-spaced out, but on a busy night it can get noisy. The service is warm and efficient.

Now to the most important aspect, food. Had Mulligatawny Soup, which was smooth and great tasting, plus had the right amount of noodles and chicken.

Had BBQ Chicken Shaslik as starter, this one should have been better to say the least, it had a burnt aftertaste which put me off.

For main course, I had some awesome Grilled Fish, beautifully cooked I must admit, but the lemon-butter sauce was a little too tangy.

For dessert had a coconut and cream based preparation called White Tango, which was simply delectable.

On the whole, Gallops is a great place to eat and have a good time. Four stars from my end.

loved the food

had been there in about a group of 10. great ambience. loved the pork vindaloo and some lamb thing that we had ordered. a bit expensive but worth it.

Dissapointing

Getting a table at Gallop is akin to getting a table at China House it seems. We got there and throughout the evening we saw enough empty spaces, wondering why the bulls**t about no tables then.

We started with the Bloody Mary (excellent) and some ice tea (crap)

The appetizers were Paneer Shashlik which was fairly good, the fondue took too long to get there and wasn't all that great. Also the guys were so cheap with the bread, had to call for seconds.

The soup across the table was Mulligatawny which was very weak. Usually they do very well, this time it was like eating a daal rice soup.

The main course was Lasagna which was just way too spicy, enchiladas which tasted like the lasagna and mexican rice which looked and tasted like a pulao.

All in all huge disappointment. Service was fairly slow was well.

The ambiance and location of course continues to be stellar.

Awesome Setting & View to Die For!

Gallops - one of my fave restaurants that I have frequented for years...
Pro's & Con's -
The menu has limited variety for the vegetarians. The Punjabi/Mughlai food is average to good...
They serve one of the best Steaks and European cuisine in town...The pastas and Nachos are good..
The interiors and settings remind you of the erstwhile British / English atmosphere...
The view is just amazing in the monsoons as the huge windows overlook the Race-Course lawns
Do try and get a table close to the window as the view of the race-course is awesome - brings back memory of the lawns in London...Pricing - averagely expensive. Meal for 2 (without drinks)will set you back by around Rs.1000/-
Cheers,
Ajai Bathija

I can't get enough of their baked fish!

This place is definitely on the pricey side, but the food makes it totally worth it. i've been there time and time again, and i can't remember ever leaving wondering why i paid so much.

whatever you choose to call for is great, the ambience is great, wooden work with a modern touch to an old-world feel. Hope that makes sense. It's perfect for your little soirees or the big get-togethers you might have planned. hell, it could even suit romantic get-aways.

i highly recommend it, it's one of my favorite joints in mumbai and yeah...try their baked fish!

Consistently Reliable and Great!

Went there for dinner last night after a while and I have to say that Gallops never ceases to impress. Whether it's the Indian or the Continental, the food is always great, the service is always superb, the ambience is always cozy and the price is always right. That's 4 out of 4 - you really can't go wrong with that!

Last night there were 5 of us out to dinner. We ordered mainly Indian fare (Achaari Chicken, Bhuna Gosht, Tadka Daal, Jeera Rice and an accompaniment of Tandoori Rotis). Once person in our group opted for the Continental meal (pan seared Rawas rubbed with Sun-Dried Tomato paste and served with a creamy Mustard sauce). All the dishes were really great and we all thoroughly enjoyed the dinner (the wierd mish-mash of Indian/Continental cuisine not withstanding!).

Total hit to the pocket-book: About 3.5K

Add the fabulous atmosphere and the attentive, friendly service to the great food and good spirits at Gallops and you have yourself a night on the town!

Quiet, open space in the crowded city

I recently visited this place for the first time....the experience was really good. Probably, it had more to do with the day or rather night...31st Dec.

I left with home at arount 10pm....and obviously discovered every place was either crowded or had a long queue. Tried my luck at Gallops...

I found the place pretty sophisticated....didn't see a young crowd, but the place is really awesome - spacious, tables are nicely placed & lightings are disticntive too!!

It comes across as a place when you just want to quietly talk to someone over a drink or a dinner. The service is quick and people are courteous.

Overall, its a good place

Great location. Good for groups

I've been to Gallops many, many times.Not cause I particularly love it, but somehow it seems to be ideal when you need to do a meal in the worli area and you have a large group of people(they have a great round table which is perfect for groups plus with Indian and Italian on offer there's something to suit diverse tastes).The location is nice,there is a feeling of space, you're surrounded by a LOT of green, not to mention AMPLE car parking...I feel I'm on a holiday from Mumbai everytime I go there. In fact, make that a holiday back in time too, cause honestly, Gallops has the ambience of a britsh-raj style club.And in keeping with the theme, the food is what I often refer to as "club" food.Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's bad but you need to be "in the mood" to be ok with the generous dousing of white sauce or to relish the perfected to Indian palate, almost "masala" primavera!The portions are generous, the Indian food pretty decent, good even, and the desserts while not exotic are club fare and tasty (caramel custard anyone?).

I've heard one should go there for breakfast, they have really sweet outdoor seating and while I do have full plans of waking up early one Sunday morning and heading there, I'm afraid I haven't yet quite managed to do that.

So do give Gallops a try, especially now when we're in the midst of winter (joke!) that outdoor breakfast might be quite the thing to do...
