Mixed Experience

Have visited the dhaba many times.Over a year the place has become overcrowding. The food is good. The place gives a nice feel of the dhaba. Avoid going on weekends the place is overcrowded. Live music sucks the singers are really irritaing if you your table is near to them. The best part of the dhaba is sitting and having your dinner on the shacks but now they are charging a lot for that. Good to try something new.

Sheer Beauty With Food

This is a huge place with the worst karaoke in town. The singers deliberately sing spiritual songs and urge you to request the nuisance and tip them to play some recent track. The place is good for food and is connected to the highway so gives you an easy access too!!!

A different Dhaba experience

This place is located on the outskirts of Mumbai, much ahead of the Bhayandar bridge. Obviously to reach here you need your own transport but the parking facility - which basically is parking on the side of the National Highway is not that great.
The food is nothing great. The paneer was as if it was made two days before and very spicy too.
The seating is quite unique. Some areas have a ‘machaan’, where you have climb a flight of stairs to sit on the floor. Cushions are provided ofcourse but then again they feel very damp. We were seated in one of their bamboo huts. Since we had during Summer (May 2013) it was quite hot and the lone ceiling fan was not helping at all.
The only good thing about this place would be the booze. The drinks are quite cheap - dirt cheap - prices that you would only get a wine shops. Make sure you inform your Server to open the bottles in front of you - You can never be sure at such places.
If you would like to visit this place make sure you have a Designated Driver - someone who won’t drink. A must visit place if you want to booze with friends and don’t care about taste.

lavish dhaba

the extensive area that this dhaba is spread across is quite impressive. the dining experience was quite good too. though on the heavier side when it comes to price the quantity is not very sumptuous and the veg is a litlle less pleasing than the non-veg dishes. service is a bit slow and the ambiance is quite enticing

Horrible: shady, dingy, unhealthy

This is one of the most over-rated places in that area. We wanted to try Macs this time, but my wife wanted to try Kinara since some time. This place sucks. It was dark - partly due to rains - and when we asked to put on the lights, 2 dim lanterns were lit. The flies didnt respond to the repellent. Service was very slow and not proactive - just 1 mutton dish took 40 mins when the place was not even 30% full. The cutlery was worn out, and the food was just average taste.

I think this is a typical dhaba for a highway drink & I surely wouldn't recommend unless its your only option.

Good Dhaba

Recently we wanted to have good punjabi food but not in a restaurant and a friend suggested This Dhaba.

We thought to try this and believe me it was really a great experience. Simply loved the food and ambience.

Earlier we thought it was costly but when we tasted the food we had no complaints. The best part was that even the kids enjoyed alot. They had so much fun in the park.

Will definitely recomend this to friends.

Unhygenic

I had been to Kinara dhaba once and would not want to go again. The good points is ambiance and the music that is being played. It gives a dhaba feel.
The bad points are seating arrangements, pillows, seat covers. They need to clean the place and make it hygenic. Food was ok. Service was poor. Delayed service.

Overpriced, Unhygenic

Food was not upto the mark, service was sorely lacking. The seating arrangements were khats & smelly sheets & pillows, Ive had my share of food at dhaba's and it has been awesome, but For the price they charge here, its barely a dhaba. Political influence has probably let this dump of a place be on the map. The crowd which comes here is sort of mixed, there are the usual rich city people but there was also a healthy amount of anti social elements there & taking your girl there isnt the best of ideas. You are paying through your ass for some crap food with shitty service in a dingy place at the end. Not a place Id visit again.

Unhygienic / Awful / Tasteless / Bad Service

I guess my title says it all.But I will elaborate it for fellow burrpers. I visited this Dhaba with a group for lunch. As soon as I entered the place all I could see are flies / insects.... food bits lying over the ground and empty bottles of beer lying around. I neglected this atmosphere coz I believe food quality is of utmost importance. Looking at the unhygienic conditions we decided to settle down for Daal Tadka & Rice. The waiter was hoovering around us like an additional fly hell bent to take the order; he even said place order fast since it will take 45 minutes to get the order.... Guess what the Dhaba was empty still 45 minutes to get your order :(....

We passed those 35 minutes shooing away the flies on the table. After around 35 minutes waiting for our Daal tadka & rice..... the order came; Guess what I noticed a fly in the daal served to me; I immediately called the waiter his response was unbelievable "Arrey kuch nai abhi bahi gira hoga..... " he stuck his filthy finger in my plate; with a pinch removed the fly and I was like "ERRRRR!!! Please have this changed" to which he replied.... "Change nai hoga, yeh abhi abhi gira hai" ..... "Shit!! I knew exactly what I was gonna do next.... Write a review on Burrp". Other members of my group who had already started their lunch also mentioned that the Daal was tasteless , bland not seasoned, but as soon as they saw the fly in my plate..... They stopped.... We just paid the A$# the bill and moved on......

While on my way out I noticed the "Burrp Certificate" awarded to this restaurant....... Burrp team you really need to review this restaurant.... People believe in your certificates and you cant afford to earn urself a bad name.....

A mixed experience

Kinara dhaba, certainly qualifies to be called a dhaba, because of the vast area on which it is situated, Khatiyas for sittings ( even though we found it very uncomfortable to sit on them) etc. Of course you also have proper sofas and chairs on the other part of the restaurants as well. Lot of games for the kids. Live music (not typical for a dhaba). All in all they create a conducive environment for a group who want to spend relax time for couple of hours, enjoying hukkas and have a drink. The food quality is good (We had dal tadaka, veg biryani and veg peshavari) though not exceptional. Service is average.

disappointing...

sad experiences...
a) when asked for forks, the waiter tells me "v r short of forks, y dont u use toothpicks instead"
b) u dnt get served sauses either with soups or starters, u hv to ask for every small little thing..
c) the starters really tastes pathetic... and the starter "cheese tikka" is literally a oily cheese cube served on ur plate.. which looks more like a soap.. it had pathetic taste too..
d) most of the khatiya's where 1 has to seat were half broken or too solid a seat... quite irritating... the pillows on these khatiya's - u can c tht these arent washed since ages...

Finally..a Dhaba for Mumbai :)

Let me clear the air about dhabas..Dhabas are meant to be on highways and not tacked up in the by-lanes of the city or in Malls :P

Kinara is a saviour for Mumbaiites..we no longer have to drive all the way to lonavala/khandala to enjoy the dhaba ambiance.

Great place..good food..liked the seating arrangements!!

Good job!!!

Excellent ambience and perfect for big groups

i am surprised that the reviews posted by most people for Kinara are mostly negative or unfavorable!!! I wish to clarify that Kinara is the best place to go for dinner with big groups considering the tasty VFM food and more importantly the liquor which they serve as per NIP and Full Bottle pricing. The place is on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway and makes perfect long drive getaway for folks from Mumbai like us. I have been there about 6-7 times in the last one year alone. Earlier the prices were very low but now with the increase in food inflation and other factors they have hiked prices but it still is reasonable.

Must haves: Paneer Lasuni Tikka is just awesome. So is the cheese tikka, paneer manchurian dry and chicken manchurian dry. The chicken kebabs are nice too and so are the veg and chicken schezwan fingers Mostly everything at kinara is tasty and rarely any complaint about the quality of food. Quantity is nice too. The main course has lots of variety for non veg in chicken mutton and sea food. Even the veggies have lots of options in paneer and the other regular stuff. Chinese main course i havent tried as yet. The rabdi and jalebis are very good too.

Coming to the bad: Since the place is huge (went there last satday and there was minimum waiting of 45-60mins) with about 500 odd sittings and more they are really under staffed. So at times the service is slow especially on weekends or other holidays. Also since service is slow there are times that the kebab starters come little cold to the table. Request one to be polite and friendly to the waiters and they will serve you efficiently. Tipping them before hand would help.

The ambiance: they have live ghazals where they belt out good numbers. For the drinking crowd it's perfect although i agree that the singer's ask for about 50-100 bucks per song which is fine but a bit too much to pay 100 bucks for a song. For kids there are lots of games to play like video games, joy rides, etc. They also have a machaan type sitting but ive hear that they charge a bomb for that and service there is slow.

VFM: per head damages can be about 400-500 if only food is consumed wholesomely. with drinks it can go upto 800-1000 per head.

Overall i again reiterate that Kinara is a must try place and you will keep going back for more.....

Worst Place for Vegetarians!!

I had been to Kinara a few times before with friends but never really liked the food over there and yesterday I experienced the worst that this place could have done for me. I and my friends are all vegetarians and we had ordered a paneer starter which came along with a salad. The moment we started eating it, I felt a strong stench coming out of it. After a little investigation I was shocked to find a RAW PIECE OF CHICKEN in my veg salad!!! We fought with the manager and the staff and stormed out of the place after paying for the liquor that we had there. The staff there was least bothered and it seemed as if they were used to this kind of mess-up. Just imagine what kind of irresponsible and un-hygienic these people are. I don't even feed my dog raw meat. Being said that I or any of my friends are never going to this shit place ever again!!

Not worth/to mark

We family and freinds of total 08 people went there, as i suggested them all due to my earlier visit. But i was very disappointed this time.Infact i feeled embrassed why i suggested this place today.
1.When we entered no one to help to get your seat even thou 5 to 7 places were empty.Their staff told to meet front desk
2.Front dest alloted us Machan. Reaching Machan, they said all are fool,Who gave you booking here!!!!!!
3.Again to desk and finally got 1 khatiya.
4.No arrangement to keep family and studs group to maintain harmony.
4.all food served was cool from starter to main corse.
5.Veg Afgani was worst.
6.At last they gave finger bowl that too 2 at time....reason they didnt have more.Parson keeps felling and washing that 02 bowls ulternatively.
4.On seeing this i looked closely at spoon/fork, they too were very sticky seems
no cleaning is done properly.
I strogly suggest to avoid such unhealthy and Chalta he nature Places.Pl dont waste your money and Mood also.

Never really understood why people like this place????????????? Yeah they have a great layout... but nothing else. I mean you go out to enjoy good food with friends and familly. If you don't get the basic right..... whats the use of the ambience?????? I really prefer R.K. dhaba right next to Kinara. Much better food.

N guess wat..it was not bad at all. The khutiya experience is really good. The food too was good. U can b served at the dead in the night....considering tht v were thr at 2.30 am.
Some ppl mentioned alcohol served is cheap....well v didn't get tht....probably bcoz it was a dry day n still got it :) !

Crap Food, crap music

Reasons why to avoid Kinara Dhaba-

1) The food served is tasteless, and has no similarities whatsoever for a Dhaba food.
2) We were 11 people , 3 people suffered from bad stomach ache the next day. including me.
3) The so called gazal singers were asking for Rs.100 per song requests.And in a span of 2 hours we were there.They must have wished 10-15 people Happy Birthdays and 3-4songs were repeated twice.
4) Its a long drive from mumbai suburbs and not at all worth the wait. Theres a long queue on Weekends.
5) Try the dhabas which are opposite to Kinara they are much better and serve good food.Dont recall their name.
6) Better get the mobile nos of the waiters, its a huge place and you never know when your waiter will come back to take orders..

Pls read my entire review

Its an hour drive on the highway if u start from bandra.....that too on a weekend..........go for the khutiya ambience......which are built on raized heights..........however they charge minimum a Rs. 2000 for 2 hours and then 500 for every subsequent hour...........so if you more than 6-7 people..go for the khutiya.......nice place if you wanna drink a lot........reasonable rates.........hookahs are for Rs ...250.
Foor(Veg)
Starters
Crispy Paneer is awsome.
Can try the other paneer starters.
Tandoori aloo.
Cheeze tikka( if you r fond of cheeze)

Main Course
Veg Peshwari(the best)
Bhuna Masala
Can ask the waiter for suggestions....helps a lot.

Rice or biryani is also good.

Deserts
Jalebi
Rabri.

Problems.

Since its in open air.....mosquitos irritate inspite of having 2 kachuha chaps under the table...but its manageable........
Bill Per person:300-400.....for veg food without drinks but ordered lavishly.But you cant go again n again.....as its too far....but its worth going once or twice.

A place for groups

If you are a group of 5 or more and are looking for a group dinner with drinks then Kinara Dhaba might just be the place you would look out for. It tries to emulate the Dhaba on the Punjab highways but I found it to be too artificial in that aspect. More-so it is built keeping in mind the target audience to be families and groups. You wouldn't find truckers to park and have food there! Anyways, as far as the ambience goes, you have those khatiyas and machaans, ideal for a big group. The pathway has kid rides and few caged birds and animals. I saw a huge Turkey and rabbits among them. Music was played by a small group and mostly sung by two artists. They on and off traversed from new ones to the old numbers as the night passed. Coming to the food, the starters were good. However, I did not like the Dal makhani, probably my expectations were too high after I savoured the starters. Service is below avg but considering that the place is big you can discount this factor as you get more time to spend on those khatiyas and machaans. This place is reasonably priced. Don't expect much and you will like the place and specially when you are with friends everyplace is good.

Great Ambience

Situated in the WEH, after the hustle bustle of Mumbai city - Kinaara is a HUGE place. They've got traditional seating with Khatiyas and they also have a Machan area. Too Cool. Its a good place to hang out with friends over drinks and sheesha.

Thats where the beauty of the place ends....

Meaning - The food isnt that great and the service is also average. However - the starters were tasty enough.

The music being played was soothing to make the environment even better.

FIRST LINE OF REVIEW:
.......................YOU MUST GO THERE...........................................

THINGS WHICH I LIKED.. rather loved.
1) sitting settings.. huts, open chabutra's, tables, arrangements
2) Service - no doubt it was appreciable.
3) Servers - I liked the way they were helping us choose the right thing. Very decent.
4) LAST BUT MOST IMPORTANT
Food.. non-veg, veg, starters, desserts.... you cant just skip anything of this.
Jalebi and rabdi, paneer tikka etc etc etc.. just amazing.. just awesome.. finger licking experience.

I suggest readers to take me seriously and try this great dhaba. I am sure you will thank me after being there once.

A Monsoon Experience

Set out far away from the city extended on the northern most part of the western highway, Kinara Dhaba is a perfect setting for a night out with your group of friends.
Had visited this place on a weekend night with a bunch of friends on a rainy night (whcih actually made it better). There were too many tables (or rather settings) to choose from best being once with beds with as open an environment. The restaurant has tons of such tables with a village style ambiance. It has no walls and the open air duriong monsoon is the selling point here.
Coming to food - not bad. The starters - hara bhara kabab + veg kabab platter = all were decent. The dal tadka, paneer kadai were pretty ok.
All in all, this place ranks higher not because of the food but simply of its ambiance. Damage per person incl drinks wont be more than 600-700 bucks for a great evening with friends.
