Top 11 Places For Chole Bhature In Mumbai
Foodies in Mumbai usually have one common complaint from the city that is known for its street food varieties. That is: Mumbai doesn’t have good Chole Bhature! We agree that Mumbai’s Chole Bhature varieties come nowhere close to street-style chole that’s available in every corner of Delhi.
Relishing Dilli-style Chole Bhature
But that are a few restaurants and food stalls in Mumbai that do have delicious Chole Bhature. Give the food at these restaurants a try and then let us know if you think they’re anywhere close to the typical Delhi ones.
1. Vig Refreshments, Chembur
Vig Refreshments is a local hotspot. Popular for its Sindhi delicacies such as Dal Pakwan, it doesn’t lag too far behind with its Punjabi offerings too. Locals love to line up here to eat their chole bhature from the minute the restaurant opens. Dining at Vig is a family tradition that is upheld today and we see the reason why. Don’t miss out on their thick lassi while you’re there as a perfect accompaniment to your meal.

10. Oye Kake, Fort
It comes as a surprise that a place that serves some of the best Punjabi food in town is actually all-vegetarian. But we aren’t complaining. Their Amritsari-style Chole Bhature is cooked with masalas that come straight from Punjab.
We love how zesty and aromatic their Chole is! If you are looking for a full Mughlai spread, also try their Mirchi Lasooni Paneer Tikka and Mirch Malai Subzi.

11. Cream Centre, Lower Parel
Cream Centre is known for its all-veg fare that includes not just continental dishes but even Mumbai’s street food dishes. Their Bhatura is the almost size of an American football, only slightly smaller, so it can be overwhelming to look at.
But once you dig into the dish, we promise you’ll want to hog it all right away! Their signature Chole Bhature is apparently made from a recipe that has been passed down for decades in the owner’s family. We really wish we could find out what makes it so lip-smacking. Their creamy nachos and brownies are top-notch too!
