In Mumbai you get everything...
I am on tour for a few days and had an absolutely hilarious experience while looking for lunch this Friday. Around Ghatkopar, we saw this decent looking place called 'Asiad Restaurant' and as we were desperate for lunch, decided to go inside and hog. I had Harsh with me, an office colleague from IDEA.
The really well drseed durban took a couple of seconds extra to open the door, which was a little odd. However, hungry Harsh rushed inside immediately, and I was given a not so subtle hint of what to expect by the durban - sir, its a girls bar (with a rather sly smile).
It was dark inside, I mean really really dark with red lights on the tables. Harsh was still rushing, when I could make out many many girls/ women/ aunties staring at us from the back tables. I stopped short while Harsh still rushed on, looking forward to a feisty meal in almost absolute darkness. I called out to him and tried telling him in English that there is something odd about the place. However, Harsh was almost unstoppable. Finally I said, "Harsh its a Girls' Bar and maybe we should look for another place to eat".
The waiter immediately cornered me and said in a hushed tone, "Sir, gents service bhi mil jayegi".
