Get off the eaten path with our delicious tour of Mumbai’s best street food!

Mumbai is famous across India for its outstanding street food but discovering good eateries in a big city is not always easy. Not to worry, that’s where we come in! We’ll help you experience all the flavours the city has to offer by guiding you through Mumbai’s two best street food areas.

We’ll start at Mumbai’s most famous beach, Chowpatty, where we’ll try an array of Mumbai’s best vegetarian street food as we

watch the sun set. We’ll have classics such as dahi puri, pani puri and pav bhaji. Then we’ll take a short taxi ride to the lively Mohommad Ali Road area. In this predominantly Muslim neighborhood we’ll introduce you to the local culture and, of course, the delicious food. In the bustling ali khao gaullis (eating lanes) you will find mainly non-vegetarian options such as chota kebabs and chicken tikka.

Hope you’re hungry!

Note: many foods we’ll pass by, and a few items we’ll try in the Mohammed Ali Road area are non-vegetarian. However, there are plenty of options for vegetarians so just please let us know when booking. All snacks at Chowpatty Beach are vegetarian.

    Chowpatty Beach

    A foodie’s visit to Mumbai is not complete without a stop at Chowpatty Beach - the best place to taste Mumbai’s (vegetarian) favourites such as pav bhaji and pani puri.

    Sev Puri

    Munch on this classic Mumbai street food while you watch the sun set over Chowpatty Beach. It's potato, herbs, chutneys, and sev (thin strips of fried chickpea flour) served on round discs.

    Kulfi

    Still on Chowpatty, sample Kulfi, a frozen dairy dessert very similar to ice cream, but much denser and creamier. Popular flavours include rose, mango, pistachio, cardamom and saffron.

    Indian Sweets

    Sample hand-churned ice cream in unfamiliar flavours at a 120-year-old shop and satisfy your sweet tooth with sugary, bright orange jalebi, the national sweet of India.

    Mohammed Ali Road

    Witness the buzz of activity surrounding Mohammed Ali Road, an area with several important mosques and the epicentre of the city’s Ramadan celebrations.

Is street food hygienic and safe to eat?

Yes! Well, not always, but the vendors we have carefully selected are perfectly safe and hygienic (1,000+ happy guests and counting!). In fact, this is one of the main motivating factors in designing this tour: we wanted to make India’s incredible street food accessible to visitors.

Are there vegetarian options?

The first half of the tour (at Chowpatty beach) is entirely vegetarian. The second half of the tour is mainly meat but there are a few vegetarian dessert stops. If you’re vegetarian, eat a bit extra at Chowpatty and then spend your time in the Mohammad Ali Road area soaking in the electric atmosphere!

Is there a lunchtime option?

We provide an evening tour as that is when the traditional street food areas of Mumbai we visit on tour come alive and the stalls open. The tour does not really work as well earlier in the day therefore where opportunities are less and the atmosphere is lost.

Where is the second stop, Mohammad Ali Road? How do we get there?

The Mohammad Ali Road area is directly east of Chowpatty Beach and to the north of CST Station and Crawford Market. We will travel there by taxi and it takes about 15-20 minutes, just enough time to get hungry again for the next stops!
