Cafe Leopold is a bustling, open air cafe that has become somewhat of an institution in Mumbai. Duck in for a cold beer in the sweltering heat, or just to get a break from the madness of the streets outside. Food is good, not amazing, but the atmosphere is fun.

One of Mumbai's oldest continuously operating establishments, the historic Leopold Cafe is popular among budget travelers in search of cheap Indian, Chinese, and continental food and strong libations. Bollywood scouts know this, and it's one of the first places they look when they need foreign extras for films set overseas. This large cafe's popularity is largely attributable to the fact that it's in the heart of Colaba Causeway, Mumbai's main tourist strip, and is open late.

Colaba landmark and Mumbai institution, the Leopold Cafe is a bit pricey by Indian standards, but serves good food and drinks, and most importantly is the absolute center of traveler life in South Bombay. Eat in the open-air cafe downstairs for excellent people-watching, or upstairs in the air-con when it's sweltering. The Leopold is certainly overpriced for what you get, but it's not just for the food that people go here.

Most of what we ordered was the starters section.Reshmi kebab, chicken barbecue, Mediterranean prawns, paneer chilli, garlic bread, french fries. we really enjoyed all the chicken dishes. There 6 of us sharing the non-vegetarian food& each of us got a generous portion of each dish.
It was Friday evening and we didn't have to wait for them to seat 7 of us. in fact they even gave us a choice of where we want to be seated. Though we took aboit 10 minutes to finally decide where to sit, the staff graciously waited for us.
Though the seating is a little cramped (downstairs more so than upstairs), we were lucky to have an adjacent table free to pile up all our huge bags. we had our little corner & joked & laughed without I'm sure disturbing the others there. Each were ensconced in their own private world. In fact, one of the waiters walked over to defend one of my friend whose leg we were mercilessly pulling.
The service was prompt and generally good, but there were a few slips. They forgot our order of garlic bread & had to be reminded. A bottle of beer was knocked over in the middle of the meal & it was only at the end they mopped up (there was shards of glass under the table and my poor colleague had to twist her foot to make sure she didn't accidentally brush against them) and they took for ever on getting our main course.
The desserts weren't that fresh. The brownies passed muster (there was only walnut, no almond), but the lemon cheesecake was a disappointment. So was the fact that they didn't have ice cream.
We tried only the Indian cuisine and found the food to be good and with generous portions. We'd ordered Chicken Fried Rice, Chicken Tikka Masala and butter naan. Each could easily be shared among two people. They also have a Chinese section which we didn't delve into.
My colleagues felt that the happy hour options were far too expensive and settled of a pint of beer each. The cold coffee (minus the ice cream :( ), hot chocolate and mosambi juice were so-so.
But we had a lot of fun, and enjoyed the food especially since we had had a disappointing dinner with the same group yesterday at Pizza by the Bay. Leopold Cafe surely gives you your moneys worth.Recommended for:Vegetarian
