I was searching google to find “Best Marathi Restaurant in Mumbai” and Aaswad restaurant was one of the google result. More than seven thousand reviews enough to convince me to visit Aaswad restaurant. But this time I thought why not invite few of my marathi friends to join too so that menu order selected by them only.
We were five friends at Prabhadevi West. Two were marathi. We didn’t know the exact location of the restaurant. We hired two taxis. Luckily, taxi wala was aware of the restaurant location. He enhanced our knowledge by saying that Aaswad was earlier near to ShivSena Bhavan in Dadar.
We reached restaurant within 10 minutes. 30 rupees was each taxi bill. Paid and we crossed the road to reach Aaswad.
There was crowd outside the restaurant. People were waiting for their number to enter restaurant to have their seats. We too approached the man who was writing queue number. Half an hour we had to wait and finally we enter.
The first order was Modak by our marathi friends. Modak was served with pure ghee. It was awesome.
Pithale Bhaji Bhakari, Bhakari, Masala Rice, Dalimbi Usal – The menu requested again by our marathi friends. Taste of the food was too good. Very less spicy with added spices. The aroma of spices was great. It taste good. I like marathi food specially because of spices.
After lunch I requested for gajar halwa and one of marathi friend requested for gulab jamun.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the lunch. It was time to pay the bill. I requested for bill and was surprised by the total amount when bill was presented. Only Rs. 916. We were five people that means Rs. 183.20 per head. Nothing I can say the total amount. To be honest I can say the restaurant is one of the cheapest and best in Mumbai. Will visit again for sure to try different menu but in-short what surprise me the total bill amount. Very cheap and best.
You can also visit Aaswad restaurant from Dadar west local train station. Its 10 minutes walking distance. Reach Dadar west then walk towards Kabutarkhana and then towards the church. Its 2 minutes walking distance from church.
