Outta my love for chaats!
Apart from casual dining, you will find chaat here as well. As a paani puri lover, I couldn't resist it. The Aloo chaat, Paani puri a.k.a Gol gappa and the delhi chaat are the true winners on the chaat menu. I loved their lassi the plain one thick sweet yoghurt-y good ness! I tried their chole bhatures and they could be worth a miss, their chaat isn't. Some clean, tasty, flavourful, robust and hygienic street food!
Does Mumbai REALLY go here for the best Pani Puri?
Back from a short road trip with the family to Gateway of India last night and going by recommendations, we decided to go have the chaat at KP. The place was over crowded especially at the Pani Puri counter. 40 bucks for a plate of PP was daylight robbery! And all they put in there is Boondi, tooth-numbingly-sweet tamarind chutney and overly-sour paani? The guy hesitated to give us a 'masala puri' because we had some spilled over paani in our cups thinking we will have a free PP. 55 bucks for a Ragda Pattice (patties) which was chhole on the side of heart-shaped 'tikkis'. Utterly disappointing. What was even more disappointing was the Dahi Wada. No spices, no chutney, nothing. Just Dahi and Wada. Understood this was a self-service place, but going to the other end of the restaurant to get a spoon was crazy.
4 Pani Puris - Rs 160
1 Ragda Pattice - Rs 55
1 Dahi Wada - Rs 55
Food average, snacks better..!
A pretty average place to have food. Food and ambience are just normal and also, service is a bit slow. However, kulfi falooda and gol gappas are safer bets! But, still, the place is always crowded esp on weekends. Also, sweets options at the main counter are a lot better and worth giving a try !
Had to ask for Menu card...
Had to ask for water (which was served at the end of the meal along with the Bill)..
It wasn't a busy evening at all, considering we happened to see empty tables even as we entered and left.
We ordered for Malai Kofta in main course, which was nothing but 2 small koftas and a watery sweet gravy.. Rotis were just about average... Don't think will return here again, especialy knowing that Colaba has so many good options to offer!
Cockroaches found in the food
We had ordered Chholey and found 2 cockroaches. On calling, he replied with an attitude. We refused replacement of the order. But his reply was a plain "OK" and he hung the phone on us.

Chaat and Chat
It is the most reliable place for a good chat and chaat. When you walk in, the neatly arranged food and sweets that greet the eye already makes the mouth water, and one just looks forward to all they have to offer. Be it the need to tingle tastebuds with all that great chaat, or satisfy the hunger with authentic Indian food , this place really is the best.The simple ambience is comfortable, and great for two friends catching up or for a simple family dinner. Oh, and the gigantic bhatura is worth a photograph!
Like most restaurants on Mumbai's fabled Colaba Causeway, KP is showing its age. The fresh delicious food it has been producing for decades has deteriorated into a bunch of ready made rubbish. This is my primary complaint for most of the "old greats". They tend to take for granted that people will keep pouring in regardless of their quality control.
Too bad I'm not one of the naive few.
we had an urge for chole bhature so ended up there. well must say that they really dont know what a bhatura was, coz what was served was just a big puri and the accompanied chole were too meagre. the thali we had was also just okie, though the parantha was nice and the lassi was also gud. but i dont think m interested in going there again.
the new age sleeping pill ...
Team burrp's search for "laddo's" took us to this place yesterday. The list of what we had could go on and on but the best part of this dinner was that it finally led us to really good sleep!!! We had some of the unexplored kailash-parbat options yesterday. I was here for the first time and enjoyed "rabdi" to the fullest. After four rabdi's that we had, i got one parceled for myself.
Everything that we had from paani-puri to cauliflower pakodas tasted awesome. The feat finally ended with all of us having a laddo each :)
KP's food makes you sleep like a baby
Okay, first things first. I don't know what is in the food, but last night I went to Kailash Parbat and then had the best sleep I've had in many months. And this was not just me, this was the case with everyone who went along with me. Now let's talk about the food.
I went there with the office crowd yesterday. We were five people in total. Amongst us, we shared the following - Pani Puri, Dahi Batata Puri, Dahi Wada, Mexican Sev Puri, Gobi Pakora, a couple plates of Pav Bhaji, 1 Salted Lassi, 1 Aloo Paratha, 4 plates of Rabadi, 5 Laddoos.
Pretty much all of the food was delicious. A place like Kailash Parbat is known for their snacks and for surely they impressed us with it.
On the ambiance front the place looks a bit worn out and old. The service was quick though.
The Best Gulab Jamun in town
One winter evening I suddenly feel an urge, a craving, a desperate sort of yearning, for my favourite sweet The Gulab Jamun.
I believe that if you want to be happy you must fulfill such feasible and viable desires at once, here and now, so I put on my walking shoes, cross the Oval the Rajabai Tower Clock is striking Six turn right at the Mumbai University gate, and the left, and walk towards Kalaghoda, turn right towards Colaba Causeway which is a foodies delight and soon reach my destination - Kailas Parbat at the southern end of Colaba Causeway.
I have heard from my friends that Kailas Parbat is the best place in Mumbai for Gulab Jamuns. I have enjoyed delectable Gulab Jamuns at many places at Pachkuin Road in Delhi, Pehelwan at the end of Lanka in Banaras, and even in a place called Dumka in the back of the beyond but now amongst the people eating Gulab Jamun at Kailas Parbat I see a veteran, a connoisseur, relishing it with such satisfaction that I go to the counter and order a Gulab Jamun myself.
Just one hot mouth-watering Gulab Jamun in a liberal amount of thick syrup. Its nice and hot - Gulab Jamuns must be eaten hot and very soft and juicy. I spoon a small luscious piece and place it delicately on my tongue and close my eyes to enhance the quality of the gustatory experience whenever you want to enjoy good food just close your eyes, concentrate on your tongue and drown in sheer bliss.
I just leave the succulent Gulab Jamun piece on my tongue for a while to let the hot sweet viscous syrup permeate deep into my taste-buds and the moment I gently roll my tongue the Gulab Jamun disintegrates and melts in my mouth releasing its delicious cardamom tinged flavor and soothing rose fragrance within me. I eat slowly, deliberately, eyes closed, savoring every moment, relishing the divine taste, prolonging the heavenly experience its epicurean delight of the highest order.
I walk back home in state of supreme bliss, the lingering taste of the delicious Gulab Jamun remains with me for a long long time.
Kailas Parbat serves delicious chaat, dahi wadas, sev puri, pani puri, cutlets, tasty snacks, samosas, chola bhatura, falooda and all sorts of sweets (the sev barfi is really good) and their restaurant called Kailash Parbat Hindu Hotel opposite is arguably the best place for Sindhi, Punjabi and North-Indian pure vegetarian food in Colaba. The Navratan Korma is superb and so are their paneer delicacies.
Kailash Parbat is the best vegetarian value for money eatery in Colaba for a delicious nourishing hearty meal. But its their delicious Gulab Jamun which is unrivaled, unsurpassed and reigns supreme.
