24 Reviews for Mumbai Chaat
enjoyable and nice ambience with reasonably quick services. priced reasonably. No senior discount allowed but if they did they could further enhance the reputation amongst us pensioners,
All the samosas were old enough and tasting bitter and felt like sitting in kitchen for very long time and just fried and serve hot us. But inside taste and quality really disappointed
And also we called at the shop, girl working there doesn’t answer the query and said us to chase owner for 12$ dlr samosa
We chose the Maharaja Chaat Platter thinking it was good value for money but it turned out that since you pay less, you also get less – unlike other places where with combos you pay less cause you are ordering more.
Sev puri is awesome.
In my opinion,
1.This is a take away place with few table and chairs, they struggle to cope up with a decent crowd.
2. I could see they have problems with preparing food when crowd increases. And food taste goes very average.
3. Finding hard to supply food on time.
There were few unsatisfied customers as they had similar kind of problems. Surely, I would think twice before for my future visit.
Come on man you are in a service industry. The least you could have said I am sorry you don’t like this dish, “shall I give you something else instead or would you like a refund”
That’s it. I got really upset the way the owner handled the situation, I asked him to keep the money and be happy.
Hello. Mr Owner (old grumpy person), this is not India. You cannot get away with treating customers in this rude and sarcastic manner here in Auckland. Please don’t forget that customers are the ones who make a business run.
Oh thanks for your reply.
Check your CCTV footage and you’ll understand what went on. My wife was waiting for a longtime and was first in line to be served. Obviously anyone will get pissed if someone jumps the gun (I’m sure you would be upset as well). In addition to that, I was reading Ravinay’s review and it seems his wife suffered a similar fate and he had to step in.
hmm – I don’t recall you saying ‘SORRY’…
WHY DOES IT HAVE TO COME THAT SITUATION???
According to me, it’s because the owner doesn’t know how to respect and treat ladies. No wonder, I can hear him shouting and being disrespectful to his own staff.
Their curries are just at the right level of spiciness and not too heavy and really tasty!
Highly recommended for a vegetarian place.

The thing that puts people off is the terrible attitude of the guy (probably the owner). Such a stiff and rude guy! Hospitality is something that has to be from the heart. This guy clearly lacks it!

This was the first place we came to, and the Sev Puri was the first bite we had to eat. They said, ‘put the whole thing in your mouth at once’, which I did. Awesome!
The taste experience was like a continuous unfolding of different levels of flavor and spice. Other members of the group picked the ‘dahi puri’ as their favourite overall food of the day – that one was like an explosion of yoghurt and spice in your mouth, as you crunched into the puri shell. But my fave was the sev.
Friendly, enthusiastic hosts, and I’ll be keen to come back and try other vegetarian treats here.
I went back to the restaurant yesterday and had to deal with a very angry owner for writing the review above. He started shouting at my friend who was a bit shocked.He even told me write what you want. The owner has to realize that customers need to treated with respect and feedback given should be taken in good spirit. I am reducing the three star given to one star because of bad customer service although food is good. We used to have food here almost everyday but because of bad behavior i have decided to stop going there.
Great service, the taste of home cooked food.
All the vegetarians out there brace yourselves! This place is highly addicted.
The regular thali – love the soft roties
Puri and Mango ras
The Dosas are crispy and delicious
Gajar ka halwa and Gulab jamun – Priceless
This is not a fast food joint! These guys will serve you delicious gourmet food, so if you looking for 2 minute service go to macdonalds up the road, but if you really want some authentic and yummy food there is no place to rather be but Mumbai Chaat!

Ordered papdi chat and got dahi wada. When I went up to the guy at the counter, instead of owning up to the chef’s mistake, he and the chef started arguing that there was papdi in it and adding wada was making it authentic (Wada in papdi chaat and authentic ???!!! never eaten or heard in my 30 years).
The old person who I am assuming was the owner was rude and a liar. The owner and the staff need to learn manners and customer service skills.
Food was extremely disappointing.
If this was the last restaurant on the planet, even then would never step in it again.
I had this experience from last week, me and my wife were having lunch and interm we ordered something to their serving staff and the owner’s son shouted and said “Hello you…. come here and order here and started shouting to their lady staff that why you are taking their order”.
I think both of them should first learn how to respect women and then learn some basic customer service and then run this business and sorry one suggestion to owner..send your son to some good primary school again…Never ever recommend anybody.
We will be bypassing the other places in Sandringham now and heading straight for there. Can’t recommend the food enough. Oh and the prices are great too.
Really regretted going there, paying money for poor food and very rude service! Will never go there again and will not recommend it for anyone!
