Thanks in part to the high density of expats living in the area, Bandra has a range of restaurants offering good international cuisine, as well as good Indian food. Head to Elco, a local favourite, where you can eat authentic street food that has been cooked in a proper kitchen. The chaat and pani puri -- traditional savoury street snacks usually served on the roadside in India -- are especially popular, as are the fresh juices, all served in a lively location on the busy Hill Road. Moti Mahal (116 Turner Road; 022-26-40-8577) and Caravan Serai (155 Waterfield Road; 022- 26-43-2570) are two of the area’s Indian restaurants that offer a more formal dining experience.

Western restaurants such as Saltwater café, Basilico  and Yellow tree cafe (33 Ambedkar Road Junction; 022- 65-28-7800) are populated with a mix of expats and well-heeled locals, and are recommended if you are craving an eggs benedict after days of eating curry. For a swanky dining experience, Hakkasan is the place to brush shoulders with Bollywood stars, but you will need a wallet to match.

Getting there
If you are staying in the south of Mumbai, a taxi costs between 250 and 300 rupees, and takes, on average, an hour. Be sure to tell your driver you want to travel via the toll road, the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Not only is the journey fast, it also gives you a dramatic view of Mumbai's skyline.

For the more adventurous, a train to Bandra station can be quicker and cheaper, but congested.
