This a 100% vegetarian restaurant. They specialize in South Indian, mughlai and Chinese food. Their Ganga jamuna juice - a mix of oranges and tangerine juice, they serve per glass or per jug. Their garlic chips is a good starter, for main masala dosa, paneer tikka, vegetable patiala with methi naan is delicious. They have a wide range of dishes.

Service in this branch is usually good but on week ends Saturday and Sunday is a bit wanting. Quick meals are prepared and then await the more time consuming ones and when delivered on the table the quick meals are usually cold and staff are reluctant to go and heat it again. MINUS POINT.

I frequently go for lunch to this restaurant and have always found the quality of food to be consistent. There has never been an occasion that I have complained about the quality of the food. The salted Lassi is greatly great. I always end up ordering 3 of them

Really enjoy Chowpaty's selection and especially am fond of their dosas. Also love being able to have lunch in a little quieter place in Diamond plaza than just the food court.

Decent place. Cleanliness could be better. Table clothes can be soiled. Food is just passable. Caters to a lot of Gujrati dishes. Punjabi dishes are nothing to write home about. Service could be better.

Chowpaty is a simple Indian vegetarian restaurant. Their menu is varied the Indian is traditionally prepared and very tasty. Been to both outlets a number of times and had their delivery service.

they started with the north indian specialities with south indian dhossas and idlis and now they also serve chinese and italain vegetarian choices - the owner is a nice person - and often puts in his personal touch when ordering. Really nice for Pure vegetarians.
