Mumbai at the Grand Hotel, on Victoria Road, is due to open for business again in the coming weeks.

It closed around the time that the hotel did in 2020.

However, following the reopening of the hotel under new owners, the Mumbai basement restaurant is set to follow suit soon.

“Mumbai’s passion lies in creating an unforgettable dining experience, filled with the rich flavours, colours, and aromas of Indian cuisine, with the menu being a celebration of India's diverse culinary heritage.”
