You can select your own crab and they will make your crab tandoori. The spicy and smoky tandoori crab can arouse all your taste buds. I love their another dish which is Stuffed Bombil.

Stuffed bombil is bombay duck stuffed with prawns masala. You should also try Neer dosa with Bheja Masala which just melts in your mouth.

You must be wondering now what’s friends forever part in the title. It’s actually a watsapp group of my oldest friends. We met 13 years back in Ruparel College. They make sure to meet me whenever I visit Mumbai. It’s a tradition to chill out in Shivaji Park which was our regular hangout during college days, eat lots of liqueur chocolates, click funny snaps, dine at my favorite places, laugh over old memories and spend the night together.
