San-Qi (the three energies) at the Four Seasons in Mumbai’s district of Worli offers a unique culinary experience, letting you navigate through Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Indian cuisines in one upscale dining spot. The restaurant features a tandoor kitchen, a wok station, a sushi bar and teppanyaki table. Throw in a wine bar featuring some of the best blends from Maharashtra’s own Nashik’s vineyards, and the stirring new Indian jazz music playlist and you have one of the most luxurious dining experiences in town. The seafood and dessert options are particularly popular.

2. The Table

This luxurious dining spot, one of the best in the country, serves globally inspired cuisine mostly using fresh produce from their own chemical-free farm in Alibag. Taking inspiration from and combining a range of cuisines including Japanese, French, Thai, Chinese, American, Italian and Indian, The Table serves delicious, creative dishes in a tastefully designed space, adorned with floor to ceiling windows. Their signature Boneless Chicken Wings or the Salted Caramel Sundae are huge hits.

3. Café Mondegar

Cafe, Restaurant, Diner, Contemporary, Fusion, Indian, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free

Café Mondegar, flooded by tourists and locals on a daily basis, suits your needs perfectly whether you’re dining solo or with a group. But the Mumbai landmark can be particularly rewarding for the solo diner. A table by the window will let you people-watch Colaba’s most dynamic streets, while a table further indoors would let you admire the iconic cartoons of Mario Miranda that adorn the joint’s walls. So, grab a beer and one of their Indian-Chinese offerings and watch.

5. Mamagoto, Bandra

Restaurant, Asian

This restaurant’s colourful Japanese Manga-adorned walls and striking décor, combined with its fusion-Asian cuisine, makes it one of Bandra’s best offerings for anyone seeking a fulfilling dining experience. The Hot Basil Chicken Cups, Crispy Chilli Potato and Mama’s Homemade Chocolate Cake are particularly striking among their very creative and delicious offerings.
