Top 5 Places To Try Sindhi Cuisine In Mumbai
If you love trying out new cuisines, we’ve got something that will excite the foodie in you. Sindhi cuisine, though not very popular, is truly distinct and diverse. Their food actually also reflects some culinary traditions of the Mughals, Sikhs, Rajputs, and Arabs. Sindhi food is a mix of all of it.
On A Sindhi Food Trail
The methods that they use for cooking give their food a distinctive taste. Slow cooking and layering of spices are the secrets to it. If you love some sweet and savory treats, check out the best Sindhi food at these restaurants in Mumbai.
1. Vig Refreshments
This tiny no-frills food stall in Chembur has been standing tall since 1952 and is extremely famous for its snacks. It opens its doors at 6.30 am in the morning, so you could drop in there for a quick breakfast too. Their Sindhi Chole is definitely among the best Chole we tasted in Mumbai. Also, don’t miss out on their Dal Pakwaan and Pattice, it’s delightful!
Where: Doctor Choitram Gidwani Road, Chembur Colony, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400074
2. Guru Kripa
For more than 40 years, Guru Kripa has been the go-to place for street-style chaat food for college students in Sion. Their Chole Bhature and Pani Puri are the most popular snack items there, but if you want to try some Sindhi food, go for their sev barfi. We love this sweet and hope it’s available in more stores across Mumbai soon because it is really addictive.
Where: 40, Guru Kripa Building, Road 24, Near SIES College, Sion, Mumbai
Guru Kripa and Vig Refreshments are great for snacks, but if you want a wholesome Sindhi meal, Sindhful is the place you should head to. Started off as a delivery only kitchen, Sindhful’s popularity picked up quickly, and soon after, it was turned into a full-fledged restaurant.
If you’re wondering what to order, let us help you out with some recommendations. Their Arbi Tuk, Sindhi Kadhi Chawal, Dal Pakwan and Koki with Chole and Boondi Raita are our favorites.
Where: Haji Mansion, 5th Road, Khar West, Khar, Mumbai
4. Kailash Parbat
With many branches spread across the city, Kailash Parbat has been a favorite spot for vegetarian foodies in Mumbai. It’s been on the culinary landscape here for more than five decades and over the years, it has built a reputation for maintaining good quality and hygiene. Our favorite Sindhi delicacies at Kailash Parbat include Aloo Tuk, Bhunga Bhee Aloo, and Moongan Ji Makhani Dal.
Where: Vile Parle, Colaba, Andheri, Khar, Gurgaon, Malad, Borivali, Kandivali, Vile Parle, Ghatkopar, Mulund, Chembur
5. The Papad Co
This hole-in-the-wall eatery in Hiranandani Meadows in Thane is known for delectable non-vegetarian Sindhi dishes. Their Mutton Kheema Pattice Pav, Sindhi-style Boneless Chicken, and Mutton Curry are highly recommended. It’s a small eatery, so it’s difficult to get a table right away.
The best option is to get some food delivered from them so that you can enjoy their delectable dishes from the comfort of your home. Vegetarian foodies should try out their Aloo Tuk, Soya Pattice, and Koki; they’re all finger-licking good!
Where: Hiranandani Meadows, Shop 8, Sunrise Shopping Center, Behind Opp Hyde Park, Manpada, Thane West, Thane, Maharashtra 400610
