This is one small joint that is not to be missed. Whenever my maid does not turn up to cook food, i dont miss her too often, thats coz I live in striking distance from Guru da Dhaba.
This one is not a restaurant called a dhaba to attract attention but really a proper dhaba.....Run by an ageing Sardarji and his son and daughter-in-law, Guru da Dhaba, in traditional North Indian dhaba tradition keeps it reasonably priced, simple and tasty.
This place serves food which is absolutely non-oily, costs 30-35 bucks a dish unlike a proper restaurant which will charge u not less than 60 bucks for the same dish. The vote of confidence perhaps is the never ending queue of people who keep coming in and have to share the 8 odd tables this little joint has. trust me, for the 2 years i have been eating here, i have never had to shell out more than 50 bucks per head for full 'pet bhar ke' khaana!
The variety of stuff on offer can only be matched by mom's recipe book. They have your regular tadka daals, paneer bhurji's, kali daal, chole,,,,, and then they have yummy raajma, amazing baingan bharta and arbi... you'd never find arbi in another place in mumbai!
if you are really really solid hungry, you can go for the thaali that will cost you a 70 bucks, its got everything you could ask for and you'll have to be dragged back out of the place!
go for it mate, and you'll absolutely love it!
