I grew up in Delhi shopping at this chain for high-quality Western and Indian cotton clothes, and I still gravitate to it. Unlike most of the stores in Bandra, which aim to be trendy, Fabindia has stuck to its conviction of simplicity when it...
2nd Floor, Krystal Building, Waterfield Road, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India
“When Hakkasan opened in 2011, it took the city by storm. It’s an international Chinese restaurant chain with the highest standards when it comes to food, drinks, and service. The soft-shell crabs and pork belly are musts, but it’s a pricey meal,...
2nd floor, Vithalbhai, Linking Rd, Phase II, Bandra West, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400050, India
This is a two-level bar with the best martinis in town. Bonobo is always buzzing but has a chilled-out neighborhood feel. When the weather is nice, everyone wants to hang out on the big outdoor patio. It’s my go-to party spot any night of the...

I often check out this curio shop that sells flip-flops, tote bags, and home goods such as picture frames and lamps. Everything has a funky, modern design and is super affordable. It’s an easy place to pick up souvenirs. —Manu Chandra Shop No. 1,...

Olive is iconic in the city. It’s been around 12 years, which is a lifetime in Bombay, and it’s the place to meet and dine in Bandra. I think it helps that we constantly reinvent ourselves with new dishes and theme nights. But I have to say that...
