Hood Food: The Mumbai Guide – The Best Eateries In The Mathurdas Mill Compound In Lower Parel


Over the past few years, the food scene in Lower Parel has exploded. One reason is thanks to the growth of High Street Phoenix, an extremely popular mall that houses several casual and fine dining restaurants. Another factor is the increasing amount of corporate offices in the area; thanks to the heavy footfall, restaurants are almost always full.

One area in particular that corporates like to hit after a long tiring day is the Mathuradas Mill Compound because of its plethora of fun restaurants that serve great comfort food, have fun activities and generally promise an  all-round good time. Here are the best restaurants in the compound:
