Cafe Churchill, Colaba, Mumbai

Chicken Cordon Bleu

It is a smallish place with about 5-6 tables. It has a very casual atmosphere and a cozy setting, bordering on cramped. It was alright though. We looked at our options while waiting for the waiter, which took some time as there was apparently only one waiter working at the time and all the tables were full.

5 Spice – A Must Visit in Mumbai

5 Spice, Fort, Mumbai

All in all, 5 Spice is a restaurant that would have got a 5 on 5 had it not been for the degrading service standards. I wish they pick up. For now, a 4 out of 5 is all I can give.

Still, I have always enjoyed chopsueys, Sate Chickens, and Manchow Soup here. Yesterday, though, my experience was a little disheartening.

Eastern Diner

Mexican Lamb

We had heard a lot of good things about Eastern Diner and had a lot of expectations when we walked in. We were not disappointed.

Despicable Me 2 – Hilariously Surprised Again

When the world needed a hero, they called a villain

There was hardly a boring or a meh moment in the entire movie. Some of the jokes are not exactly pristine but Gru’s accent takes care of that, and leaves you laughing out loud.

I will not write much more here and just say go watch it, if you haven’t already. And yes, don’t take your brains – zombies eat brains.
