We Still Have this Kohinoor
This is one celebrity you have to meet once you are in Mumbai. He is Mr. Boman Kohinoor the owner and soul of Britannia Restaurant. We came to taste the Berry Chicken Pulao but left with our hearts charmed by this young man who is only 96 years old.
He loves meeting people. He is a fan of the British royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived for a meal on a Sunday but alas it was so quaintly closed.
The Duke and Duchess then invited him to their rooms at the Taj. That made Kohinoor’s day.
He is such a gentleman and loves to chat up his customers.
My wife got the compliment that “you look just like the queen when she was younger” I bet the naughty man says that to all the ladies.
This is a family run restaurant and retains its ‘ye olde worlde’ charm.
A must visit for all Mumbai lovers. It is in Ballard Estate and the exact address is Britannia & Co. Restaurant, Wakefield House,11 Sprott Road,16, Ballard Estate, Mumbai-400038. The phone numbers are–22615264 / 22615263.
Beware all you weary travellers methinks the restaurant is only open between 12noon and 4 in the afternoon. Also it is closed on Sundays.
