The Shivaji Park eatery boasts of a menu with a mix of Italian, Mexican, French, Swiss and other Mediterranean dishes. The restaurant - which also has a bakery - usually has a long queue of diners. We recommend the Mezze Platter, Sizzlers and the Ovenfresh Special Nachos. They have eggless desserts and bakery products so don’t forget to pick up the fluffy Blueberry Muffins on your way out.

For those who haven’t been to this delightfully kitsch restaurant, you are missing out on a lot. With modern Buddhist-monastery-like surroundings and colourful parasols hanging from the ceiling, the restaurant is one of the very few in the country serving authentic Burmese food and that too with an all-vegetarian menu. Their Mandalay Laphetthoke – tealeaf salad, Chilli Mushroom Paukse – steamed buns stuffed with sweet-spicy mushroom filling and Oh No Khowsuey are must tries.
