Our first visit to this 42-year-old eatery was during our college days when we needed a break while finishing assignments.
While five years have elapsed since then, our recent visit to the eatery, when we found ourselves tucking into their all-time popular Thali (Rs 30), brought back warm memories.
Sahyadri initially offered seating arrangements, but a coupleof years ago it was discontinued and now you have to stand and eat instead. Old timers also rue that with the shifting of commercial establishments to Bandra Kurla Complex, the crowds haven’t been the same.
But no one seems to be complaining, thanks to their several value-for-money offerings including Batata Vada (Rs 16 per plate), Misal Pav (Rs 29) and Medu Vada (Rs 20). The Thali is the best of the lot and comes with a generous serving of rice, two large chapatis, vegetable, dal and pickle. However, it is only served between 11.30 am and 2 pm, so make sure you don’t miss out.
