SanDoitchi Powai Mumbai Review | Vegetarian Sandwiches Salad Dessert Delight & More | Food Review | Restaurant Review

OCCASION- Another depressing rainy evening in Mumbai (I know rains are supposed to be romantic and all but I am a true blue Mumbaikar and monsoon is anything but romantic for us!) so was here for a review session, hoping that some delicious food will drive the weather blues away.

LOCATION - Amidst the lush greenery of Powai area, situated very close to the imposing Hiranandani high-rises, is this cute and invitingly warm SanDoitchi outlet spread over 2 floors, with flat screen TVs to show LIVE matches and a menu with something for everyone. 

FIRST IMPRESSION - Walked in to bright ambiance with a cheerful vibe. Staff is smiling, polite, very helpful and good with suggesting best items from the menu as per individual preferences. Seating is designed in such a way that couples, friends, families - everyone feels at ease. There are comfy chairs and couches as well as high chairs. Menu has Vegetarian choices from doitchi i.e. sandwiches, shakes, tea/ coffee, fries, dessert, noodles section and they make their own sauces as well as bread on the premises (the aroma of freshly baked bread is so enticing!). They are also regularly introducing new items on the menu as well as coming up with offers (such as- on 22nd of every month, a free dessert on ordering 1 sandwiches). Basically, a happy place :)

FOOD- Coming to the main thing, food-we tried a lot from the menu and had a great time. Prices might feel high but actually they are reasonable since portions are very good and quality of each dish is superlative. Especially recommend their sandwiches, shakes and desserts. Pure bliss. Absolutely LOVED-

--- PANEER MELT Signature Doitchi - Loads of fresh vegetables, in-house mildly spicy sauce, loads of molten cheese and big juicy slab of soft paneer, all tucked inside fresh soft bread.

--- MAX MEX Signature Doitchi - Even more fresh vegetables, mayo, in-house mildly spicy sauce, delicious patty made of beans, all inside delicious bread. Very filling.

Both Doitchi (sandwiches) were among the best we had, mainly because of the softness of the bread and freshness of the veggies + paneer/bean patties. The crunch of the veggies, the juiciness of the patties, the tanginess + spiciness of the sauce, all mixed together to provide utter happiness. Honestly, much better than any other 'famous fast food sandwich' brand where vegetables are mostly cold and bread is stale!

-- In SALAD, Tried PANEER PEANUT PLEASURE- Paneer popcorns, Iceberg, Cucumber, Onions, Tomatoes, Crushed Peanuts. This was decent, nothing extraordinary. Quite filling and healthy. The dressing was mildly creamy, the amount of paneer and peanuts can be increased a bit as iceberg seems to overwhelm after a while. 


--- LOADED NACHOS - Nacho chips with loads of salsa, beans, chopped veggies, cheese, basically just the perfect starter one wants when one goes out with friends. Especially we were here on the FIFA Finale day. So it was perfect to have this while our eyes were glued at the unexpected match. It was tangy and spicy and cheesy, what more could one want. I personally am not a big nacho fan but for those who are, this will make them happy. 

--- PANEER POPS - Being a huge Paneer fan, had to try these. They were really good. Softest paneer coated in batter and deep fried, pop them in and be happy like I was. 

Their SHAKES section is FABULOUS, we recommend everything!

--- EVOCADO- Avocados, Vanilla, Butterscotch, this was DREAMY GOOD to say the least,
--- HEZPRESSO- Double shot Espresso blended with Hazelnut and Vanilla, STRONG and must-have for coffee lovers,  
--- HOLY OREO- Oreo Cookies, Chocolate-Vanilla, Banana, never thought oreo + bananas combo would be SO SO GOOD,
--- HOT CHOCOLATE better than the version at most places, this one was A-level, MUST-HAVE,
--- MASALA CHAI was loved by mom, she is the final authority on its taste and she liked it.

Finally, for DESSERT, we tried

--- HOT MOLTEN LAVA - One of the most popular desserts of our time, really fantastic. Even my sister who is not big on chocolate based desserts LOVED this. HELLLLLOOOOO Oozing molten chocolate, bye bye monsoon blues :D

---  INDIE CHEESECAKE- This was decent. Heaviest dessert of the lot. Very dense, it was cheesecake with a gulab jamun twist hidden inside (hence Indie). Need at least 3 people to finish it. 

---- RED VELVET CHEESECAKE - Another brilliant rendition,not as dense and heavy as the Indie one. Classic taste. If you love red velvet, you love red velvet, that's it :D

There are so many other items on the menu I want to try that I will definitely revisit soon, and this time, in a bigger group with friends so we can try everything!

Conclusion - SanDoitchi is awesome. Hulk Foodie Happy. Bon Appetit :)
