Restaurant Review – Curry Brothers, Mumbai
The Curry Brothers is a cozy little restaurant with a nice homely feel in the happening suburb of Bandra in Mumbai. It has a retro feel, with the bulbs, lighting,& board games along with pictures and frames of recipes handed down from generation to generation.
It’s a flashback & throwback to another era. One feels like one is at a relative’s place. The music was also Goan folk.
The menu was given in an exam writing board. There’s a variety of mainly regional Indian cuisine.
So we started with the Gondhoraj lemonade (125 Rupees). The lemons come from Bengal. It was naturally lemony, sweet enough & took us straight to our childhood memories of fresh nimbu pani.
Our first starter was Paneer Cafreal (200 Rupees) .. cubes of paneer coated in lots of coriander and a hint of garlic and fried garlic … something quite different.
Next up was Mushroom chilli (250 Rupees).. spicy in a pepper heat sort of way. Buttery with simple seasoning & the sweetness of onions.
For our main course, we had Veg Kaldeen Khowsuey Curry ( Rupees 350) which was served like Khow Suey with rice noodles but nothing like it. It was a rich, mildly spiced, sour curry with vegetables.
We rounded up our main course with the evergreen Rajma-Chawal curry bowl (Rupees 200). The jeera rice was perfect. The simple rajma was well-cooked & the flavour of tomato was dominant but there wasn’t any prominent spice or other flavour.
We rounded up our meal with the Gondhoraj Lime Cheesecake (Rupees 200) & it was perfectly sour, creamy, soft & cheesy. A fitting end to a unique & memorable meal.
We would definitely recommend The Curry Brothers to you.
