hungry kya???

Olympia is a place for breakfast lunch and dinner. The alti palti, chicken masala, bheja masala, biryani are some of my favourites. And I never leave without the caramel custard. A good place in the south of Mumbai for those who are minding their budgets too. Its bang opp Leopolds and both have their own charm.

completely worth it!

Being on the Colaba causeway, a street that had loads of options for eating out , this place got ignored by me for a long time, till a friend of mine convinced me that this is actually an excellent place. Actually even as I was standing at the entrance, just about to enter the place, I was unsure if that was the place I wanted to have a meal at, but I almost got dragged in by my friend and am glad he did.

Yes, this place is perhaps the exact opposite of a fine-dine restaurant and is totally a no frills Non- AC restaurant with very basic seating but very quick and efficient service. It is always running close to full capacity and the reason for it being so popular is ofcourse its nice and tasty Iranian and North Indian food, especially the non -veg items and all that at very low price points.

So you can have an a bun maska with chai or if you are a little hungry have a Mutton Khima with Bun maska for Nashta. If you are there during lunch time you can also try any of their Non-veg Biryanis and of course end it with a wonderful caramel custard. And the damages? Maybe around a 100 per head :)

So yes, next time you are at Colaba, maybe you should try the Olympia Coffee House, just for the experience

Best kheema pao ever!

Olympia is the place I started eating breakfast at.I never ate breakfast.Their kheema pao is available only in the morning.And that is because they run out of it by 9 am.A well spiced,well cooked kheema....served with soft pao.Finish it off with a cup of milky Irani style milky chai.
This place also serves up some decent Mughalai dishes.The tandoori chicken is complete value for me.It has a beautiful buttery taste and it is never overcooked.The mutton masala fry is another great option.A lot of people complain about thin gravy...but the point is not thickness or thinness.It's the flavour...which is undoubtedly extremely balanced and robust.Biryani is okayish...not overspiced like other restaurants.A complete VFM meal for anyone.On an avg a complete meal will not set you back more than 250 rs.

Try it ... you might like it ... I found it ok

An impromptu lunch with my senior and 2 colleagues saw me land at Olympia on a sunny Thursday afternoon.

Before venturing further, I must clarify that I did not try most of the items on the menu. So for all you folks wanting to try out this place, please go ahead and pass your own judgment. The reason I am penning this review is because I was a little shocked considering I had heard so much about the place and had placed it on a pedestal like Britannia or Cafe Goodluck in Pune... I shouldn’t have!

For starters, the place is simple and cheap. The ambience is very medieval and you will notice everyone working there donning a crochet taqiyah. There is a mezzanine floor with air conditioning which is where we were seated. The airconditioned section is only open for a couple of hours during lunch ... We seated ourselves comfortably around a round table for four. Once seated, apart from 4 large size plates, we were each given a small quarter plate with onion and mint chutney .. non-veg food without onion is unthinkable .. This is what we ordered:

2 Bheja Baida Masala
1 Chicken Tikka Masala
1 Mango Milk Shake
3 Caramel Custards
1 Baida Masala
1 Paya
1 Tawa Gurda Kaleji
10 Rotis
1 Kulfi Falooda
1 200ml coke

Of these I had the chicken tikka and the baida masala .. the baida masala was extremely oily and very thin gravy .. the chicken tikka masala was blood red in colour and it took me 2 days to wash it off.. too much artificial colouring !!

On the positive side, my colleagues who relished the Bheja Baida Masala were raving about it being one of the best they’d ever had .. everything else was strictly ok ..

The caramel custard was good but if you’ve tasted the one at Britannia, everything else will seem just about ok .. the total bill was approx Rs.900/-, so the place is extremely reasonable ..

The staff is extremely helpful and courteous and the service is quick and efficient ..
I would rate the experience @ 2.5 on a scale of 5 .. but as mentioned before, try it out for yourself, you might just like it

Great Seekh Kebabs

Although traditionally famous for its biryani, I found the chicken biryani unremarkable, and much prefer Noorani. But the mixed kebab platter was good, and the seekh kebabs are among the best in the city. Most places overcook their seekh kebabs, and dry them out, but those at Olympia are moist and, in my opinion, second only to the ones at Sarvi. :)

Quick,cheap,addictive.

Ok so there are days when you're really broke and in the need of some good tuck.This is the place.I've been dropping in here quite often.Start with breakfast.This is by far the BEST kheema pao I've had in Bombay.Add a double anda fry on top and it's the perfect Bambayia Irani breakfast.Wash it down with sweet Irani chai (dunk in that superb bun maska if you wish).
Lunch time?There's only one way to go.Tandoori chicken,Chicken/Mutton masala fry and pao or chapati.The tadka dal is yum too.Call for a chicken/mutton biryani too if you're feeling rich.It's not bad at all.But my favourite is Mutton masala with pao....soak up the gravy with the pao,it's delicious.And let's not forget to mention the very friendly waiters.They are so very helpful and casual- a no frill eatery with no airs.Just great food.

yeh hai mumbai meri jaan

When things are changing every micro second this is one place which surely represents mumbai ( bombay ). Out of my 22 years on this planet i guess 15 years have gone by eating from this place. Ever since childhood i m in love with its place, Those who think that u get good food in a place of good ambiance are definitely mistaken. this is the most simple place i ever visited. Must haves are Chiken Masala n Biryani.

PS: Dont feel embarrassed to ask the waiter for extra chutney its tooooooo yum

Best Kheema in Mumbai

This place has been my favorite for morning breakfast. Of all the places ive tasted kheema, this has to be by far the best kheema in bombay (If you can oversee the oil). The pav they serve with the kheema is great as well. However its available only from 7 am - 10am.

The mutton fry masala has to be the staple dish here & my friends & me just love how good it tastes. The gravy is very different from all the mutton fry masala gravys out there. You have to taste it to believe it. rest of the dishes on the menu seem just your run-of-the mill average dishes.

No meal is complete here without the caramel custard or their milky chai. If you don't like extreme milky chai then you should avoid the same.

Place is extremely cheap with quality signature dishes as above. ambience & service isn't much to write about. A very happy food experience on the whole.

Caramel Custarrrrrrrrrrrrrrdd!

I'd been here with my best friend one late afternoon to grab some yummy Chicken Biriyani after we lost all our energy shopping at causeway. We'd ordered for Chicken Tandoori (Half portion) and the Biriyani and the two caramel custards. The Chicken Biriyani had two huge pieces of chicken with a minimal portion of rice, was quite good:)
The tandoori was oily, but hell, i think it's meant to be that way,i think it was fried more than putting in in the tandoor,but the caramel custard was toooo goodd, one of the best I have had..The next time i go to Colaba,I'd just go there for the custard(just Rs 17 for the best tasting caramel custard ever!). The service was very polite as well the bill was Rs 176 for the above and two servings of the custard! Overall a good meal,at an even nicer price.Stomach's happy,thus,indirectly we're waayyyyy happier !

Olympia Coffee House

I don?t know why Olmpia is actually called Olmpia Coffee house and if you have ever heard about Olympia, you have probably heard about their Kheema Pao. Getting their Kheema Pao however is quite a task as it gets sold out in the morning. I have been to Olympia sometimes as early as 10 o clock to find that they are out of Kheema Pao. They do however have a lot of other dishes which are definitely worth trying though not as popular as their Kheema Pao. Their mutton curry for example is definitely worth a try, it comes with the same soft pao that comes with the Kheema pao and if you don?t like how dry the kheema is ? this could be a good alternative. However the pieces they use aren?t always the best. Let your waiter know that you are willing to pay a little extra and he will bring you better pieces in the curry. Everything at Olympia is dirt cheap anyways so money is really not an issue. I?ve tried their Biryani too which was good but their kababs were quite disappointing and I would advise you to avoid them. One thing that some people might find a little difficult to adjust to is the crowd. There are a lot of people from different backgrounds who come to eat at Olympia and you may be made to share a table with a stranger during rush hour. A lot of people might be uncomfortable doing this and I guess asking for takeaway is a good option. The restaurant itself is somewhat similar to some of the older restaurants in Mumbai but has a very distinct personality, very different from most restaurants I have been to. The owner/manager of course sits at a table just as you enter. Whoever sits behind that table doesn?t seem to talk to the customers much. None of the regulars seem to talk to him or ?know? him though the waiters are very friendly and recognize regulars. Something I noticed about the waiters and the entire staff is that they are all Muslim. I know Olympia is owned by Muslims but I guess they didn?t get the memo on non discriminatory recruitment policies. It?s a little dissapointing to see things like this happen in this day and age. Opposite the tabe there is a small staircase leading to what I suppose must have been a ?family room? and I haven?t seen it being used ? quite similar to the small upper floor at Brittania. Just as you enter the restaurant there is a sign that says ?No Beef since 1918′ which either tells you how old the place is or for how long they have not been serving The same cafe style chairs that you find all over Mumbai find themselves at Olympia too. There are a lot of mirrors on the wall, framed in polished wood with little gaps for vents to allow fresh air into the restaurant, Olympia of course is not air conditioned. The restaurant has some really nice dull, almost brick red and yellow flooring which I don?t think has been changed since it opened and looks perfect. The computer to bill customers, in the corner however seems a little out of place but I guess you have to do what you have to do. To top everything else there is a sink at the back where unfortunately there isn?t any soap but a slice of lemon to wash your hands. The busy kitchen is right next to the sink, get a nice whiff of the food while you wash your hands and you can even peek in to see how your food is being made though to be honest I have never really had the guts to do so ? somehow I don?t think their kitchen will be too hygienic. On that bombshell things must come to an end. Be sure to drop in to Olympia next time you are in Colaba before 10 in the morning. Cheers!

PS ? Olympia is right opposite Cafe Leopold on Colaba Causeway.

Quick n Simple Food

I found Olympia best for me because in 50-60 Rs. u may have simple food preparation.. u may get chana masala in 18 rs. n really fresh n Soft chapati in 3 Rupees… for bachelors like me who stay in Colaba.. really found best deal…
Food is really very economical and simple sometimes u may find oil floating on dish but that’s u will find everywhere… service is really very good and quick u don’t need to wait long time for ur meal u may have ur meal in 15 min n can move.. few things like Chicken Butter Fry Masala and Mutton Masala are really popular, as well as Khema Pav in Breakfast is amazing .. and their Omellets r superb so puffy n good.. employee are very nice..
This is a place for whom “who wants to eat for living not for those to live for eating”

On a budget - Eat here!

If you want to eat a good non-veg meal under Rs 100, a stomach full, that is, then Olympia is the place to go! Used to be frequently eating there when I was lodging at the YMCA, in the lane behind Olympia, nearly 20 years back. You have to give the guy credit that he is around for so many years, when most of their ilk is closing down.

i have a general funda - eat at places which are crowded, have to wait for a table or even share one, and one that is frequented by taxiwallahs and auto wallahs. They somehow know which ones are the best VFM and also tasty and economical. Olympia scores on all the above points.

Yes it abnoxiously messy eating at a table shared by 3 others dropping bones etc on the table, but just concentrate on eating the food and make a fast meal out of it. If you looking for leisure eating - forget it - the waiters and the guy waiting to take your place ensures that you finish your meal quick.

Now the food - my staple has been the mutton masala (spl), bheja with egg, and biryanis for lunch and dinner or kheema and nalli gosht for breakfast with their super soft pao bread. More recently they have started kababs, etc on their menu, but for me I always go for the above. Thats what they are famous for even after all these years. They serve a thin green chutney with thinly sliced onions and a bowlful of lemons with each meal. Try not to look at the guy next to you squeezing some lemons in his water for some fast salty "nimbu pani" to wash his meal down with. This place is not for the weak hearted - but is a boon for the guys staying at the various hostels, lodgings etc on the Colaba Causeway. This and Bagdadi - in the lane opposite to Olympia.

Skip at all costs

To begin with, I want to point out that, I think small joints normally have great food, and had heard from a few people that Olympia served really good food.
The food is not good - was actually really bad - ordered a bunch of dishes - and would compare with really bad club food.
Coming to the worst part is the Hygiene, or lack of. I think I have a pretty high tolerance for unhygienic places, but this place actually made me feel queasy when I left.
Would not recommend at all.

Loved the mutton biryani

Amazing moghlai food in small portion and be prepared to share tables with messy eaters !!. Everything on the menu is a half plate, so do order accordingly. Another place in colaba that really lets you eat like a king in less than Rs 100.
