Before I arrived in India, my husband promised to take me to an authentic Indian Restaurant in Mumbai. Obviously, I was curious, and excited as I love Indian cuisine. I have been to several versions of Indian restaurants around the world, but none in India, until now.
Dining at South of Vindhyas restaurant, was a delightful and informative experience. The management and staff were so kind and courteous. I love their ethic attire and flavors. I was impressed with the array of spices and pickles.
I also enjoyed eating on the banana leaves. My favorite dish was the Lamb stew 👌🏽💕.
Here is what I ate at South of Vindhyas:
Peppery Tangy Mushrooms (Koomu bharted)
