GOOD ENOUGH..

Everything from seating to food to service to drinks was average but then to be fair it is reasonably priced.
A one line statement to describe this place is- Value For Money
best suited for hosting parties when single poor chap is taking the damage and also smokers yes you can smoke at your seat!!
If you cannot bear humidity then be mindful before visiting this place as this is non a/c and open place.

Worst service..staff with bad attitude

As a marketing head of Emerson I have been coming to Mulund's Timbactu, Urban Tadka, Pop Tates for quite sometime to organise corporate party.
Today when we gone as an individuals we saw very rude and bad attitude of waiters and pathetic service. I think they only give attention when you come as a group, I ensure never to return here and also dont ask anyone to come here.

Can miss..

Situated at the 3rd floor of R Mall, you might get a little lost while finding this one. Combined with Pop tates and Urban Tadka, this one lies way inside, and you may feel as if you are going somewhere else.

No one was outside the restaurant to guide us in. So minus 1 there. When we finally let ourselves in amidst the growing crowd of Pop tates and UT, we surprised to see a huge place filled with people.

Mostly youngsters who want to enjoy their drinks with friends is the kind of crowd you should expect. There is a huge screen in the middle and this place was 90% full on a Saturday. We got a place for 2 immediately.

Coming to the service. It is quick, yet not inviting. We ordered Pasta Alfredo and a Baked veg with Garlic bread and 2 sweet lime soda.

1. Pasta Alfredo which is a white cream pasta was served in penne and only capsicum as the veggie, even when asking the waiter to add mushrooms at added cost. This was okayish. Nothing too great, nor that bad. It was served with garlic bread which was good

2. Baked vegetables with garlic bread. Not recommended. The taste was okay, but it was too liquidish.

3. Fresh Lime Soda was the highlight!! (Can you imagine!)

In all spent 800 bucks for 3 things. And not a fan of this place whatsoever.

P.S. 2 things to keep in mind.
a) This place is dimly lit. So much so that you fail to see your food properly. That's why no pictures! :(
b) Even though they have a smoking zone separately, people still smoke throughout the restaurant, thus making it uncomfortable.

Love the open ambiance !

This place is strictly for 18+ and opens only after 6pm ( I think), but if the weather is cooperative, this place is heavenly. Sit and chat and eat and drink and be merry here, you can actually go on for hours! They have a good music taste and everyone is always enjoying themselves! The starters are good, so are the cocktails. haven't tried the main course though. The place can get crowded on weekends and u might have to adjust in small areas for seating, or worse wait for an hour or so.

Relaxing!

Been regular to this place! Awesome place to get away from the hustle bustle and relax. The open air ambiance is refreshing, just make sure to grab a place with a working fan around you to keep you cool on a hot day ;) The food is great too! Servers know the food and provide good recommendations. I just loved the chicken in red chili sauce and the veg bombastic and never fail to feast on em each time I visit. The hukkas are no more, but food, ambiance and nice company are a great mix to spend a nice evening!

Not the one I used to call my second home

This review comes after experiencing the worst it could be at a place where I visit daily.

Have been regular to this place for as long as 3years or may be even more but not less. People there would listen and religiously follow instructions by patrons. Keeping customer happy seemed to be prime motto then, which made this place the best hang-out in mulund and adjoining area, atleast.
The hookahs were good, the people were good, the food was good, the service was good.....

With change of hands and new managers coming in seem to have taken customers for granted. Hotel business is all about adjusting for customers and cheering them. Here the managers now would be happy enough to say " NO WE DON'T DO LIKE THAT" .
From Changing channel on the big screen to changing the song to swapping of seats the answer remains the same : NO WE DON'T DO LIKE THAT" .
They have become more rigid and arrogant.

I remember sending a portion of garlic bread back thrice for not suiting my requirements which they happily did and also gave complimentary desserts for causing the inconvenience.
And for now when i asked why the garlic bread is so dry.. The answer was Garlic breads are served like this world over, when told to redo it the answer was again : NO WE DON'T DO LIKE THAT" .

The stewards do not know what the flavor of hukka is and would simply smoke a few puffs and say " FLAVOR BARABAR TO AA RAHA HAI" when asked him what was the taste he was experiencing he had given 4 random names all of which turned out to be wrong.
guys dot go go by previous reviews... Timbuctoo was too good to be avoided then but now things are completely the opposite of what got timbuctoo the name and fame.

good service or maybe the company was too good.

Went there y'day evening, along with 5 frnds and had a really good time, had ordered the starters about 20 mins b4 my frnds came in, also ordered beer and hookah, all of which reached our desk in about 15 / 20 mins. Hookah too about 45 mins, but we were told that it wud take quite sometime, so no issues there, overall, had a good steward, who was prompt and managed to get us everything we ordered within resonable amount of time. Spent about 2.5 k and i guess on a saturday with good service it was good day overall.... but one advice, to any of you, give a 50 to the steward and he'll do the needful.

BAD SERVICE

i had a good experience at the vikhroli outlet of timbuctoo and expected the same here at mulund...boy was i going to be sorely disappointed...we arrived at timbuctoo, mulund by 7:00pm on a saturday evening...we ordered a pitcher of beer a couple of starters and a hookah...all of which except the beer reached our table exactly 45 mins after we ordered it ,,,even the beer was brought to our table only after 30 mins and that too after asking the waiter about it almost 5 times...we even complained to the manager on duty ..but he just nodded and smiled and went his way,,finally we called the complaint no...to which they promptly replied back,,,but no one at the establishment bothered to come to our table and ask what the issue was,,either they were not relayed about our complaint or they simply didnt care ...i think timbuctoo doesnt believe in the age old motto of customer is king...well one thing is for sure,,i'm never coming back to this place and neither am i gonna recommend it to anyone...adios

Perfect place for hukkas

well there's no other place in Mulund for Hukkas, so I kinda liked it. the happy hours begin from 5 to 8, thats great i feel. The food is really nice, though the happy hours drink seemed to be bit diluted. and the manager refused to serve 1 hukka among a table for more than six. 2 was mandatory.. As we were only 4 who would smoke the hukka, we insisted on taking one and in the end the manager had to give up. We ordered Flying Monkey flavor of Hukka, which was just too good. All in all, nice economical place, the damage was 3600 after a couple of shooters, happy hour liquours for 5, mocktails for 2, one hukka and lots of stuff to eat.

Couple of Improvements

Need to change the seating...(no back support and the table height is pretty low) also the seating arrangement needs to be looked up. But else... all's really good. (Food, Ambience,Service).. that's why I'm rating this 3/5, since if u can't sit well, you can't enjoy the food or whatever you get.

Only Hookah

I was surprised to find this place in my college days, this is where i smoked my hookah first.
This place is strictly for hookah lovers .The hookah is not cheap, but considering location in suburbs and roof top.It can be a value for money.

Open air fun

Timbuctoo, an ancient city famous for gold and salt, is now donned in its new avatar ? Timbuctoo: The Sheesha Parlour (I added the last three words!!). Well it is not just for Sheesha, but for drinks and the occasional starters, main course and more drinks as well!!!

An open air eatery, located on top of RMall, Mulund, it is adjoined by its sister restaurants ? Urban Tadka and Pop Tates. All three places are famous in Mulund and across Mumbai as well.

3 of us were here for 3 different reasons ? Hukka, Drinks and Food. So I ordered for Hukka ? Romeo and Juliet ? (I think it was orange and mint flavour but I think I may be wrong here). Anyways, the hukka was just so niiiiiiice! Wasn?t on a empty stomach so didn?t get high instantly! Phew! The flavour was really nice and more importantly it lasted for quite some time. One thing I noticed was that I didn?t have to keep asking them to remove the blocked coal from the filter which is generally the case in quite a few places. We smoked for more than an hour until we asked them to change the coal! Along with the hukka, we ordered for starters ? the best of which were the Lebanese Chicken Tikka and the Lemon Grass Kabab, Lemon Garlic Grilled Chicken and Garlic Bread. Soft, tender, juicy and with the right amount of marination resulted in a great starter! Infact, I am going to order the Lemon Grass Kebab every time I go there!

The overall total was INR 855 (including INR 225 for the Hukka and excluding the booze) dividing amongst three people. Not exactly cheap but the quality of the food and the Hukka was more than satisfactory for me to not worry about the price!

On another note, Hukka for INR 225 at Timbactoo is cheaper than at Sheeshas, Bandra (INR 300). However, the hukka did not really have the same effect as at Sheeshas, which I think is the best you can get in the city! Nevertheless, open air ambiance/cheap sheesha/good flavours and some good seating does make this place a must visit for all sheesha fans!

For: ambiance, frigging good starters, hukka!
Against: seating, got a backache sitting on the small stool without any backrest!

Nice ambience

Ask for cardamom (elaichi) hukka, u'll love it!

Food is quite good though the menu is not that so expressive; so clarify with the waiters about what exactly the dishes would taste or u may end up chewing ur spoon!

ambience is nice, the open terrace and the seating arrangement are quite interesting, and here's a little insider tip: become a regular and you'll be receiving some free dishes with the tag "DIL SE. All in all, a 3.5/5, slightly above average experience with a few potential wins. Could be much better.

........cheers :)

Welcome To Beach Ambience.Miami Style

I went to this place and after passing thru 3 restaurants i arrived here finally and it said No Children Please.I knew that they would put up something or the other to prevent kids below 17 who these days think they are mature enough to enter a place filled with good ambience,good food and drinks.After entering we immediately got the table and thanks to me that i had already reserved one and that on sunday.After having a look the ambience was unbelievable and the artificial house made up and white bamboo all over the place would definately put you on a thought that you were sittting and relaxing somewhere on a beach.And crowd was 100% teens,teens and only teens.Having a cosmopolitan crowd was not bad afterall.After we sat on a table a guy(waiter) in a miami style shirt and pants came and gave a sheesha and food menu.Although sheesha menu was a regular paper printout i was shocked when i saw the food menu and it had wine and other drinks menu included.It was as big as a poster.Although very limited starters the food ranges is very nominal as far as the place is considered for teens.Very cheap food and nice quality.I had tried BBQ Potatoes and Kiwi Ice-Tea.And had a be-energetic sheesha.No regrets about sheesha,but they should use normal coal instead of magic coal.But overall it was a excellent experience.Ambience i would give 4.5/5
Food 5/5
Drinks 4/5
Sheesha 3.5/5
Over All 4.5/5

Who knew Mulund?

I am a little picky when it comes to being overly generous with rating a joint. This place was quite nice. It was late one night I ended up there with a bunch of friends. It was in the middle of the Mumbai "winter". The breeze was extremely comfortable, the booze nice. The hookah's didn't necessarily develop the right head of smoke as one expects, but then again noone there was all that good with the hookah puffing... The chicken wings, or spicy chicken wings were mind blowing, great if your sitting with friends and drinking and want a feel of spicy-ness on your palate. I would definately come here again, 'cept that while I stay in Andheri, there just aren't that many occasions that I come down to this part of the city. I would recommend it to anyone who ends up at the R-Mall in Mulund, and wants to chill someplace different from your regular Pop Tate's.... Not too expensive either. I do agree with all the other dudes who complained about the seating, I too did not find it all that comfortable. Its the kind of place that builds an ambience of relaxation and general sleepiness, and the problem is that the seats are so uncomfortable, that it actually distracts from the overall experience.... Still I hope they do open one up somewhere closer to where I stay, it'd be a great alternative to the usual places that I go to hang.

Tucked away.

This is a Nice place for people who want to get away from the usual hustle bustle of food joints, which is not far away , just step outside Timbuctoo's gates and you have Pop Tates and Urban tadka ..Lol.

Timbuctoo is good to the extent ot ambience and food is also reasonably good but the one thing it lacks is comfortable seating !! The concept of wooden benches might be nice but not comfortable enougH. Other than this detail, i wouldn't mind coming to this joint again.

You could well be in 'timbuctoo'

This place is one of the nicest 'get-aways' (if you can call it one) in mulund. Nestled in a corner or the terrace balcony of R-mall, mulund (an otherwise overly crowded, noisy place), once you step into their premises.. you literally leave the world behind! You don't need to go to goa to get sand in your feet :)

Great ambience! Good rates, great lighting, good music, and then there's Yayati (a.k.a. McLaren), the Manager, who ensures everyone there feels special. Don't miss out the blind fish in their aquarium (it's got no eyes). And for those who get too 'shushegath' at timbucktoo.. just step outside to Pop-Tates and get alive!!

Nice place but bad seating arrangements

I had been to this place couple of times, ambiance is just great, pastas are very good. Never order a pizza there. I am not into non-veg food or hard drinks so won't be able to review it. The only bad part I noticed was bad seating arrangements, there was no back support for the seats and the height of table was pretty low, so it was kind of difficult to eat the stuff. (Though they had some new tables and chairs with back support)

They should do something about the seats, that's it.
