This all-day eating restaurant and bar is the newest addition to the already hip and happening Andheri.

Along with the beautiful ambience, there are so many dishes that you need to try. Right from the Sriracha hummus kulcha hors d’oeuvre to Haleem Boreks, which is a 12-hour slow-cooked Hyderabadi lamb with broken wheat and lentils, spiced with rose, cinnamon, and cloves in a dumpling with vegetable charcoal aioli and pickled radish — this place will leave you asking for more. For dessert, do not miss the Ashtray, which is edible cigarettes packed with chocolate ganache and hidden beneath a Bailey Panna Cotta bed of Oreo cookie crumble topped with silver dust. Need we say more about this new restaurant in Mumbai?
