Visit Jimmy Boy if you happen to be that area and you wont be disapointed. Standard Parsi fare of salli chicken and dhansak is tasty. Try their speciality sodas. However keep your expectations low as it lacks the wow factor.

Their pomfret wrapped in a banana leaf is interesting except that the mint chutney on the fish was a bit of a disappointment the remainder of the meal was also not something to write... More

A place to visit not only to enjoy the great authentic real Parsi food still being served in the very traditional way on banana leaves but it is a place which takes you back down in the memory lane of yesteryears giving you a glimpse of what Mumbai's characteristic and cultural identity was formed and how beautiful it has always...

I am so glad that we got a chance to enjoy a wide variety of Parsi cuisine, personally the raspberry sherbet was the beverage on nearly every table. The rustic with modern is a super effect, cheers!!

Jimmy Boy is a popular South Mumbai family restaurant, frequented especially by the Parsi community. It is located close to the Bombay Stock Exchange and serves up Parsi and North Indian cuisine. It's a small place, with large windows and a high ceiling which make you feel as if you're seated out in the open. There is an air-conditioned section... More

Jimmy Boy is one of Mumbai’s top and most loved Parsi restaurants. Started in 1920s, this grand old Dude retains its old world charm – what with its cosy, two-floor joint with its ornate balustrades that take your to the mezzanine floor. Before you take your chair, look down at the first floor and you will be certain that not... More
