Restaurant Review: Chez Moi in Bandra Reclamation

In March, I had first my German cousin and then my parents visiting us in Mumbai -which meant like 3 weeks continuously eating out. We went to a lot of my old favorite places and tried out many new one’s as well. Chez Moi was one of the many restaurants that was bookmarked on my Zomato profile like forever. So, one evening when we were in Bandra, we decided to try it out.

Like a typical French bistro, this restaurant is hidden in a side road in Bandra Reclamation (ONGC colony). With a few tables outside and a couple more inside, you feel as if you took a short trip to Paris as soon as you enter the restaurant. Dimmed light, white tables and wine bottles on the wall give it the romantic flair of a Mediterranean bistro.

This time, we went with my parents and cousin to enjoy the delicious and authentic French cuisine. However, Chez Moi is also a great place for a romantic date night out or to catch up with close friends over good food.

We had a lovely time at Chez Moi and enjoyed delicious authentic French cuisine with great conversations and good wine.

I was surprised to learn that the owner is a Punjabi gentleman –as they are usually known for loud and colorful celebrations. But then, he explained that he studied in Paris and everything made sense. Thank you, Vinod, for bringing the French cuisine and the Parisian savoir-vivre lifestyle to Mumbai.
