The toy train goes near the base of the climb. You might reach there earlier by walk since there is a waiting time for the train.

I think I have seen dolis there. That would be a costly option since majority of your group are elderly citizens.

Gorai Beach & Utthan

Hi All,

We used to stay in Mira Road a while ago and always found that Gorai area is much more of a better beach than any other one in Mumbai.

It is cleaner and less crowded. Additionally, if you drive to it then you pass through beautiful fishermen villages. There are some old churches too and it is all very very nice.

You may also drive to Utthan, which is a fishermen village and get to see the entire vasai creek from the top. The 'real' Mumbai

Dont forget the place to eat

Hi,

Thanks for the list of places. The snaps aer great too.

Can I suggest some places to eat. Everyone has heard of Chote/BadeMiyan. But I would recommend Baghdadi not only for its portions but for the deliciousness of the food. This is behind the Oberoi's or the Taj.

Then there is Puroshottam Puri Wallah oppposite VT.

For juices and fruit creams that are sheer hedonism the fruit juice stall at Haji Ali.

Happy gorging :

"Bagdadi Restaurant" is in the lane behind the Taj, on the same road as the "Bade Miyan" stall and opposite "Gokul Bar".

The name is "Pancham Puriwala", on Bora Bazaar Street, near VT.

Thanks ViShVa.. Any more suggestions? I did try out the Berry Pulao at Britannia but frankly speaking 'there's not much to write home about it'. I was told that it was the berries that made the pulao so expensive.Any more suggestions?

Try the lunch at Rama Nayak at Matunga station.

Try fish at Gomantak near Plaza Cinema Dadar or Aproova near Bombay Samachar Building fort.

Also try the thali at Status Nariman Point or Samrat Churchgate.

Cafe Excelsior opp. Excelsior theater for Kheema Pav.
