10 Great Theme Restaurants of Mumbai

Bored of going to the same restaurants. Here is something that will surely interest you and your friends at the same time satisfying your apetite. Theme restaurants are here, and are here to stay for a long time. World-over theme restaurants are doing great business. Mumbai is no different. In fact, theme restaurants are now having pan-India presence, at least if we talk about metros.

Some theme restaurants have got a name for themselves all over the world by coming out with 'different and out-of-the-box themes. Have you heard about Condom theme restaurant of Bangkok, or the one with toilet theme in Taipei, or how about Dinner in the Sky of Belgium. In Mumbai, we don't have such bold type of theme restaurants but we have our share of good ones that one can go and spend a good time.

How about eating your lunch in a village even if you are in the city. Or are you game for having a dinner party in a Jail, or would you like to have your next drink in restaurant which takes you to the wild. This list will bring to you just that; restaurants which are developed keeping in mind a specific theme.

Here are the best theme restaurants of Mumbai that you can try.

1| Village Restaurant - Indian Village Theme

When you enter the restaurant there is definitely the ahh.. feeling that you just can't control. One step in and you are in village whereas a short while back you were in the hustle-bustle of a busy mall.

There is just a one time entry fee when paid it gives you the freedom to enjoy food from many varieties. The owners have tried to create a pan India village restaurant. There is South Indian, Gujarathi, Rajasthani among other foods that can be enjoyed. Any attempt to create an entire Indian village will have its shortcomings because of the sheer diversity of our country.

On weekends the place can be noisy.

Address: 1 st Floor, Raghuleela Mall, Behind Poisar Depot, Kandivali west, Mumbai.

Address: 2nd Floor, Eternity Mall, Near Woodland Restaurant Teen Hath Naka, Eastern Express Highway, Thane West, Thane

Address: Level 3, Raghuleela Mall, Vashi, Navi Mumbai

2| Pratap's Wild Dining - Jungle Theme

Don't expect a lion show at Pratap's Wild Dining. What scores for this restaurant is their level of service. Even if you don't get amused by the jungle setting your kids surely will enjoy every bit of this place.

Read Mid-Day's review here : Review of Pratap's Wild Dining

Address : 3Rd Floor, Om Heera Panna Mall, Oshiwara, Andheri West, Mumbai Hanuman Nagar, Andheri East, Mumbai, Maharashtra

Official Website : No official website

3| Hard Rock Cafe - Rock Music Theme

If you are a fan of classical music and just can't take rock music then stay away from this place. For rock music fans this place is a paradise.

The restaurant also organizes special shows on a regular basis. One such video is lined up for you where the famous Indian Ocean band performed.

Address : Bombay Dyeing Mill Compound, Pandurang Budhkar Marg, Worli Mumbai -400025

4| Dara's Dhaba - Punjabi Dhaba Theme

Now you might have ate Punjabi food - at a Dhaba - but at an air-conditioned dhaba. The owners bring the traditional Dhaba and the unique setting for the people of Mumbai.

The restaurant has been reviewed by many front-line newspapers, magazines, and T.V channels. Might be strong marketing campaigns but the food over here is amazing.

Address : Opposite Dhodia Petrol Pump, Western Express Highway, Ghodbunder Road,Mira Road (E), Thane

5| Nawabganj Safari - Topical Rain Forest Theme

At the K Star mall in Chembur this restaurant will take you to the occult world of a forest. This one goes further than Pratap's wild dining and delves deeper into the jungle.

How about having a glass of beer in the middle of a jungle (kind of)?

Address : Level 6, K Star Mall, Diamond Garden, Chembur, Mumbai - 400071.

Update : Nawabganj Safari, Chembur has been closed

6| Bar Stock Exchange - Stock Market Theme

Source

Dynamic pricing for your drinks just as the stocks that are traded in the real market. Just that this market goes on till midnight. The concept of the stock exchange is rather a new concept even if we compare it to many other from around the world. It's can be a pricey affair but the uniqueness has to be experienced at least once.

They have an app which you need to download on your phone to know the current prices, isn't that something very unique.

Address : 89, Shivai Industrial Estate, Opposite Times Square, Sakinaka, Mumbai

Official Website : No Website

7| The Jail - Jail Theme

Want to experience jail food? Then head on to this jail theme joint. The recreation of a jail is commendable and this jail food will cost a good thousand rupees for you and your partner.

Address : 3rd Floor, Sindhudurga Bhawan, Above Grande Imperial Banquets, RTO Road, Andheri (W), 4 Bungalows, Andheri West, Mumbai

Official Website : No Website

Update : The Jail, Andheri has been closed

8| Firangi Paani - English Pub Theme

This place is worth a visit if you want to experience excellent ambiance and want to have great cocktails. The menu boast a long list of cocktails, margaritas along with great veg and non-veg cuisines. Along with the music that is played by the DJ it is an awesome feeling to have a drink. This is my favorite from the list.

Address : Kenilworth Shopping Arcade, Level 2, Above KFC Restaurant, Linking Road, Bandra West

Official Website : http://www.bjngroup.in/restaurants/firangi-paani.html

Update : Firangi Paani, Bandra has been closed

9| Khau Galli - Indian Street Food Theme

As the name suggest this is designed as to give its patrons a one-shop-shop to Mumbai's street food. There is Paani-Puri, Pav Bhaji, Mumbai's omnipresent street food Vada Pav and many more. Street food prepared in hygienic conditions.

A bit overpriced but that's obvious for the setting.

Address : Versova Shree Darshan Co-Op Hsg Society, 4 Bungalows, Andheri West, Mumbai

More Information : http://www.zomato.com/mumbai/khaugalli-andheri-west

Update : Khau Galli restaurant, Andheri has been closed

10| Diva Maharashtracha - Maharashtrian Food Theme

There is much more to Maharashtrian food than Puran Poli and Bhakri. Maharashtrian food has loads of variety and host of the dishes are worth more than the many other so called international dishes.

Visit Diva Maharashtracha you'd be amazed.

Address : Plot No. 29/30, Shop No.1 to 4, T.H. Kataria Marg, Next To Goa Portuguese Restaurant, Matunga (W), Mumbai

Kannan, this is really good and I enjoyed reading it. I remember reading about the jail- themed restaurant and my little cousins really enjoyed at Pratap’s Wild Dining. It’s good these people come innovatively sound these days because the competition is not to be messed with when you’re based in a big city like Mumbai.

Voted Interesting.

Kannan, this is an excellent compilation of theme restaurants in Mumbai. As one who has lived, schooled and graduated from Mumbai long years back, the Mumbai of today is a far cry from those of the old days.

However, it is a sheer pleasure to visit Mumbai whenever I can. It sure holds a lot of childhood and growing up memories! Next time I'm in Mumbai, i'll try to visit some of these unique restaurants.

Thanks for sharing.

Voted up and all across the board.
