Founded in 1938 by Sayed Ali Akbarul Huseini, Lucky Hotels and Restaurants is one of Mumbai’s best Biryani joints. The Lucky Restaurant situated at suburban Bandra and next to the Goregaon flyover (east) is the name that every Mumbaikar mentions when you ask them for a Biryani restaurant suggestion.
I got a first hand experience of this restaurant when I dropped in at their Bandra joint one evening. The place, which was running full had a pretty decent ambience with both non-air-conditioned and air-conditioned facilities. The first floor, which is their air-conditioned section is shaped like a igloo with a small entrance and very low ceilings. But, once you get settled and look at the menu, you are spoilt for choices. But, since this was my first time around, I went with the recommended meal of Biryani, Raita and Irani chai.
But, whether you are a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian, whether you are going for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the options that the Lucky restaurant are phenomenal. And all this at a very reasonable price. A full meal with dessert and a hot cup of tea or coffee would cost you between 250 and 300 rupees. A lot of celebrities like Sachin Tendulkar and Sanjay Dutt have also visited this place and have endorsed their food. I would definitely recommend this place for a great Biryani treat.
