Village Voice's Description

Specializing in the fast foods and street foods of Mumbai, this sleek little restaurant hits it out of the park. There are many New York spots for dosas and chaat, but Mumbai Xpress is unique in its single-mindedness and scope - there are about a hundred dishes offered, ranging from the familiar (samosa chaat, masala dosa) to the relatively obscure (misal pav, tokri chaat). Prices are low, and most items are made to order-pakoras are crisp, the flatbreads hot off the griddle, the bhel freshly mixed. Don't miss the Sichuan paneer sandwich, the vada pav or the chiku milkshake.

    Get the mumbai grilled sandwich- uble-decker construction, Swiss-style Gujarati cheese, and, most essential, a piquant coriander chutney, liberally applied.

    Green Grilled Cheese: In addition to crunchy raw onions and coriander chutney, there's a shmear of Amul butter and Amul cheese, and a layer of thinly sliced potatoes and green peppers.

  • Village Voice on 12/28/10

    They brought Bhel, Masala Pav, and Hara Bhara Vegetable Kebab to Choice Eats and it was really delicious!

  • Serious Eats on 09/10/13

    Excellent south Indian vegetarian restaurant with dozens of chaats and some great "grilled cheese" sandwiches, Desi-style.

  • Kiran B. on 09/01/13

    Great food....

  • Michael S. on 02/28/13

    Muthiya, number 23, and like Jordan it's the greatest of all time!
