Amazing AYCE experience if you have never had Gujarati Thali

Having booked mark this for a long time, me along with 6 other family members headed to this on a Saturday afternoon. The location is in an industrial area and parking spots are not maintained properly as it is frequented by trucks and larger vehicles. The inside is clean and seems a bit small. After we were seated the restaurant filled up quickly and there was some people waiting.

A stainless steel thaali (plate) with 6 watis (bowls) were waiting to be filled. Upon asking what has dairy products the owner came out explaining all but two items being g served today were Vegan. What a pleasant surprise. The Yoghurt Kadhi (curry) and a sweet made from cream of wheat had dairy. The Chappatis come out without anything and you can top them with ghee. But first came the appetizers two types of pakoras and while dhoklas (steamed savoury cakes). They are served with 2 chutneys and one carrot pickle. All were perfect. The dhoklas are just amazing. Soft with the perfect amount of seasonings.

Then came the curries. Potato (ok), whole Moong (delicious), lentil daal and yogurt curry (daal was amazing, I probably drank 1/2 a litre of it. Okra (very good, but on the greasy side - hard to make with less oil). Sweet Boondi (ok). And then the Chappatis and deep fried pooris (whole wheat bread). And yes Oondhiyu/Undhiyu very well made with minimal oil just the right amount of spice that even the most people with spice intolerance can enjoy. At the same time full of flavour. And don’t forget the rice. You can all down with a salty lassi or chass as it called (watered buttermilk).

If you love Gujarati food and want to taste how all AYCE (weekends Lunch only) thaalis are served in Mumbai and Gujarat, this is the place. There are many servers all very good and perfectly serving most of the time. Some food we had to wait a bit longer as we had the curries, but no Chappatis and we finally had enough Chappatis not enough curries. It’s the only thing they can improve.

Reasonably priced as well.

Pros: All you can eat on Weekends, Vegan friendly, Clean

Cons: Some food can take some time to arrive, Some dishes are too greasy
