about by the way

GO OUT OF YOUR WAYWhat youre holding in your hands is my garmagaram freshly focused Whats hot column. Its with renewed excitement and joy that I serve up weekly restaurant reviews ( now on every Friday.please note) in which I look at whats hot and whats not.The only fitting way to inaugurate this series? With a review of a truly unique eatery. The first-of-it's-kind small, unpretentious, moderately priced, By the Way warms the heart. Not only is the food cooked by underprivileged girls of Seva sadan, (in a spankingly clean kitchen) but it is homestyle food (Parsi too). Eat here and directly empower and help underprivileged and destitute women of the century old Seva Sadan NGO.DECORStrains of Kenny Gs music fill the pleasant and calming unpretentious space with its wooden beamed high ceiling. A tiny plaque informs that the air conditioners have been donated by Prerna charitable trust. A counter with a few puffs and pastries, wooden tables and chairs complete the décor of this Gamdevi eatery.SERVICEPlease Take a look at the photograph.the 18 year old well-trained and spruced server, Janki was only a few years ago begging on VT station.Along with many others not only was she given a home, but also trained to cook and serve. Helpful service but it can get slow (Im told the food is cooked from scratch)FOODI love Parsi food and rue the fact that Mumbai has only two and a half Parsi food eateries and wait for Tanaz Godiwala's catering at Lagan nu bhonus. At By the way though there is Indian (bhuna gosht-palak paneer et al) Continental (pasta, pizza, sandwiches) chaat (okayish sev puri) theres a complete Parsi menu. from Bharuchi Akuri to Lagan nu custard. I ate here twice. Tehmtan Dumasia supervises the girls ensuring that the authentic ingredients are used to the correct proportions.Go for the velvety sweet-spicy saasni machi ( rare to find on a restaurant menu) made with just the right sarko . Delightfully delicate steamed Patra ni machi in a yummy blanket of chutney. While the mutton dhansak made with the right proportion of toor dal, vegetables and Motilal masala is good, it is low on salt (both times.) The plump kababs make up for it. Okayish Bhendi pur eedu and dhun dal with lackluster prawn patio. If you like old fashioned continental fare, you'll love the cheesy lasagna, the wobbly, sweet, firm yet yielding caramel custard. Even the lagan nu custard is creamy and tasty.MINUS POINTSAvoid the puffs (kutcha pastry), the lousy espresso coffee, the medicinal palak paneer. Slushy in masala Bhuna gosht, overcooked and tough Roast chicken, watery carrot soup here. Skip all that and focus on the decent Parsi menu. Snacks are over-fried and uninspired.Pastries need finetuning.(Good apple-pie).No alcohol.MY POINTHygienic veg and non-veg kitchens.Go to this unique eatery for homestyle Parsi food. Reasonably priced (Rs 700 for two) and served in a comfy, non-fussy, ambience makes it an ideal quiet open through the day ( 11am to 11pm) meeting place.Theres parking in the compound too.All thanks to the ladies of the managing committee and the women of Seva Sadan who work here. Eat a great cause, enjoy the cuisine with a cause. Please do go out of your way to get to By the way.

The food is good and the ambiance is also nice. But would have preferred if the taste was more authentic and more spicy. ....overall a good one...tasty one

We went there on a weekend for dinner and contradictory to our expectations, it was not at all crowded. However, we found the place a value for money and the food was fine. It is a good place if you are just out to try some Parsi food that is served ...... read more
