I recently went to Mumbai, India and was glad to have stayed at the Taj Land's End Hotel in BANDRA with beautiful views if the Arabian Sea.

This large hotel had several restaurants.  I tried 3 of them. 

At this modern designed restaurant inside the Taj Land's End Hotel in Mumbai, one may not realize it but this restaurant has so much to offer. Both in flavor and quantity.

I decided to have a light lunch ordering the appetizer plate that is non-vegetarian.
The above assortment also came with delicious spiced potatoes in a small bowl. And some onions with pepper below:
I also had an assortment of crispy "chips"  and dip.  This reminds me partially of the potato chip family and the Asian kropek.
You may also choose vegetarian appetizer:
At the end of my lunch, they brought me homemade "end if meal" digestives to try. Below are dates in special mixture wrapped in leaves garnished with grated fresh coconut and saffron on some

When you open it, inside is a mixture of spices with a very distinct taste.
Above is inside the leaf garnished with coconut.  One has to eat everything including the leaf.
At the end of the meal, they also gave me 3 bowls of different sweets to munch to help your digestion.  The ones in the left and right are a little similar - candy coated fennel and other spices. In the center are dates that they have prepared a special way.
The ambience is sleek modern.
Above is their floral arrangement at the bar area where I ate so I could watch their chef cook as shown below:
Masala Bay is this hotel's Indian food restaurant. The others are Chinese, Italian and one other where they serve a variety of dishes and offer buffet-style dinner or ala-carte.
