Top 10 Street Foods to Try in Nariman Point – Mumbai

If you’ve ever been to Mumbai, then you’re sure to have heard a lot about Nariman Point. Located at the end of the beautiful Marine Drive, Nariman Point is the southern tip of the Mumbai peninsula. Famous for its scenic view of the sea, serenity at night and joggers’ ring, it is also a hustling business district in Mumbai.

Where now stands a well-developed area, among the most expensive in Mumbai; prior to 1940 was once only the Arabian sea. Khurshed Nariman, a leader of the Congress and a Bombay Municipal Corporation corporator, proposed to retrieve the area from the sea near Churchgate. And hence, the land was reclaimed from the sea and Nariman Point was built.

Nariman Point now proudly houses some of the biggest financial and business establishments, such as The Shipping Corporation of India Ltd., State Bank of India, The Oberoi Hotel, The Trident Hotel, and many more.
