Garage Inc. Public House Colaba Mumbai | Vintage Decor Delicious Global Cuisine | Food Review | Restaurant Review

My sister had enjoyed her time with her friends at Garage Inc. so much that she would not just stop singing praises about this place. Finally we decided to usher in last weekend by walking in at Garage for a review session. Partaaaaay time.

The place is HUGE, especially impressive considering Mumbai's space crunch. It also has a vintage air since it used to be a famous restaurant/ celebrities' haunt of yester-years. They have kept some of the original design (look at the motifs on the ceiling, Parmeshwar Godrej painted that!) and also added some contemporary elements. Loads of beautiful pictures, strategically placed lighting, nice arrangement of chairs and couches to ensure privacy for everyone. It is easy to forget Mumbai's hustle and bustle sitting here. 

Classic and party songs in the air, there is a LCD screen playing matches too. Staff is polite and quick on their feet. The menu is vast and has something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable considering quality + quantity (1 main course enough for 2 foodies). 

Started off with ORI-GIN beverage- Earl Grey Bombay Sapphire Elderflower Lime, the best thing is the lingering elderflower tinge on the palate, delicious, sublime.


DELHI MOMOS - Perfect, can have these everyday, 
SICHUAN CHILLI PANEER - Indo-Chinese delicacy, soft Paneer, spicy, 
HARI MIRCH KA PANEER TIKKA - Get some Punjabi Tandoori tadka here, spicy, 
SPINACH CORN AND CHEESE PARCELS- Cheesy and wholesome inside, crunchy outside, looks amazing, tastes even better, 


GARAGE SPECIAL PASTA- Mixed Sauce Pasta with Jalapenos, Olives, Corn, Broccoli, one of the BEST pasta we had. Pasta is pretty generalized dish now, but what made these so good was the nice balance of red & white sauce, generous inclusion of vegetables and we did not need to enhance it by adding any sauce/ oregano/ chilli flakes etc. Licked the plate clean.

DRAGON NOODLES - SPICY stir fried noodles with crunchy julienne vegetables, these are made just the way we love our street-side 'Chineez' noodles. So yes, they are delicious. And I will reiterate-they are spicy! If you have a delicate stomach, Stay Away. If you love spicy noodles, go for it. Don't blame me when your tongue is on fire :P

PANEER KADHAI, GARLIC NAAN - Tried these from the Indian section and liked it. Paneer Kadhai was spicy while Garlic Naan was lip-smacking delicious. 

Food here has the Delhi-wallah touch. There, everything is made a bit on the spicy side, in north we love to have that chatkara in every meal. Here in Mumbai however, most dishes have a sweetish tinge. So just be aware of that while ordering here. Ask the staff to help you decide on what level of spice you want in your food :)

At one glance, there is nothing for dessert section in the menu BUT we looked closely and found a bevy of thick shakes to fulfill our sweet tooth cravings too. Perfection :D

PEANUT BUTTER AND NUTELLA SHAKE - Peanut Butter, Nutella, do I even need to say anything else, this alone gets 10/5 stars from me, what a beautiful mix of sweetness with just a salty tinge. 

BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE - Yogurt based blueberry flavor explosion, sister loved it, she is a berries fan, so heartily recommended.

I completely see why my sister and her friends have already spent multiple evenings at Garage Inc. It definitely is a must-visit foodie/weekend party destination :)
