Let me start from the beginning – how many times have I complained of the absence of a good restaurant in the Mahim/Shivaji Park area after watching a play or concert in Veer Savarkar Auditorium? Tertullia is always full when shows get over around 10.30pm, and we have no option but to go to Kakori House. For, we have to drive back to Powai. Many a times we have even done the rounds of Bandra lanes, but to no avail, since most joint are packed at that hour with long waiting time. But now, no more. Feeast @East has opened a restaurant in Mahim.
Their first sit-down restaurant, Feeast at East, offers a new experience in the Mahim area starved of good restaurants. From a predominantly Bengal cuisine earlier, they now offer an excellent range of tandoor options both in Chicken and Mutton. And yes, Paneer and Mushrooms too. Replacing the Lazeez restaurant, the new outlet offers mouth-melting Reshmi Kebabs, Mutton Sheekhs, Chicken Tengri, Mutton Kebabas alongwith their iconic Biryanis and Bengali dishes.
What I fell in love with was their new-age décor showcasing the metting of Kolkata and Mumbai. Absolutely awesome! And what adds to the fun are the quirky cartoons across the two side walls with humorous quotes. The other thing that could be one of Feeast @ East’s biggest draw is the fact that ther offer FREE WiFi! And every table has a charging point. How thoughtful and how in line with today’s times…..!
And now, let’s get back to the food. We had a whole range of kebabs that we mentioned above and each one of them were excellent. The mutton sheekh kebab is one of the juiciest i have had in Mumbai. Make sure you order the Reshmi Kebabs and Tengri too. They are out of the world! The Cheese Chicken Kebab was a little too heavy and dry for us though. And then, the incorrigible Bongs that we are, we requested Fish Fry, Kosha Mangsho-Luchi and Mutton Biryani Bengali style. Their Fish Fry and Biryani are one of the BEST in town – have called for the same at home too in the past, much to the delight of guests who came over. Desserts include Bengali Chutneys, Mishti Doi and Rasagulla. Perfect end to an awesome meal, I say.
They are value for money, well-located and serve awesome food. We’d strongly ask you to GO. Go Go Go!
