5 Spice - Horniman Circle, Mumbai
- Pattaya Prawns
- Tapan Yakee Lamb
- Wooly Chicken
- Spicy Thai Rice (Chicken)
- Strawberry Cheesecake
Of the above mentioned 4 dishes, only the prawns were dished out in two person sized servings. The rice, lamb and chicken would have easily served 4, even with me at the table.
I liked the lamb the best. It's served with a brown sauce, slightly sweet to tangy, and sprouted moong (
The wooly chicken was also quite nice. A light brown gravy, not very spicy. It mixed well with the spicy thai rice which was really spicy. The strawberry cheesecake was the perfect top off, unless you're someone who dies for chocolate. I would not recommend the Death by Chocolate here to anyone who's eaten at Corner House before, but the Chocolate
Mousse, and cakes all looked verrrry tempting. They also have a 5 Spice sundae, which is very similar to Trilogy at Corner House (except there's no mango flavour).
Blues rates it:
Food - Excellent
Service - Good
Price - High, but servings are large to match
Decor - Pretty
Overall - Excellent
Yes, I highly recommend going here, and I suggest you do it in groups of at least 3 people, 4 if you'd like to try more than one dish.
Get down to Horniman Circle. If you're going around, take the lane behind RBI. Go down a bit, skip the first little gully (called Store Lane I think), and 5 Spice is the 2nd on your left.
