The Oberoi Mumbai

Voyage to India Part 2: The South

When: Jan/Feb 2014
Where: London, Mumbai, Ooty, Kochi, Aleppey, Mamalapuram, Madurai

Part 2: Welcome to Mumbai

Our first two days were spent in Mumbai, a city filled with food.  We had the privilege to stay at the fantastic Oberoi hotel and with a complementary breakfast each morning and a complementary dinner at the hotel's flagship restaurant Ziya, run by Michelin starred chef Vineet Bhatia it was going to be amazing.

We started our evening with some delicious cocktails at the Eau Bar, that our bar tender carefully smelt to make sure each and every one was perfectly crafted.  The bar however, contained all the worst elements from the bar scene in Lost in Translation.

It was then time for the main event, dinner at Ziya.  This was every bit as good as our meal at Quilon with perfectly cooked Indian influenced food all washed down with some Indian merlot.  Service was excellent.
