Mumbai food tour

Designed and carefully curated by a Mumbai chef, this 15+ food tasting tour will see you mopping up everything from yogurt-drenched chaat snacks to buttery aubergine curry and slow-cooked mutton kheema.

Kicking off from the grand colonial heart of Bombay, you'll wind your way through three distinct districts getting a true flavour of Mumbai's culinary heritage.

Skip breakfast, because you're not going to want to pass on the crispy masala papads, the warm kachoris or the buttery masala-spiked Bombay sandwich. Nor will you want to skip sweet classics like creamy cardamon-infused phirni or the sweet rabri kulfi.

Hungry? We thought you might be. Join our small-group Mumbai food tour limited to just 8 exclusive guests or contact us to arrange a private food experience.

Why this tour is awesome

It’s more than just a Mumbai food tour. It's a 4-hour story through Mumbai's culinary history from colonial Bombay to the city's Persian community. You'll hear tales of Mumbai's dabbawallas, the men that deliver 200,000 of mamas' home-cooked lunches every day, learn why the famous Bombay sandwich tastes infinitely better toasted over charcoal and slurp on afternoon tea in one of the last remaining Parsi cafes.
