The quintessential café culture was pioneered in the 60’s by the Irani cafés in Bombay, passionately run by Parsis.They mus…hroomed all over the place by the hundreds,however, sadly you would find only a handful of them around today, endangered in existence, just like us Parsis.
The bent wood chairs,marble tables, walls clad with vintage parsi frames and the very strict and bizarre café rules to follow.They made hordes of fans, from the rich and famous, the filmy glamour to the common Bombay man. The simplicity of a morning chai with bun maska to their eclectic gourmet fare appealed to every Bombaiya’s palate.
Cafe Funkie Town is an ode, a tribute to the cafés of that old Bombay era.Once upon a time the talk of the town, and today a fading memory for most of us.I invite you to join me on a delectable gourmet experience, reliving the good old days and seeing Bombay cuisine with me, just my way.
Full marks for food and service. Nicely done interiors with old Indian cinema posters and a display of antique collection. Funny posters with quotes and famous Indian cinema dialogues.
What I tried and loved the most is khaari and ginger tea. Kheema Pav and Akuri Pav (Akuri Pav is basically Bhurji Pav). Service is quick. Prices are reasonable.
Songs of Udit Narayan and Kumar Sanu that too from 90s will keep you entertaining throughout. Nice place. Give it a try.

The warm welcome, the sparking ambiance and the brilliant creativity along with the delicious parsi food would want me to visit this place again & again & again. Wish you many success.

If you are looking for good Parsi food then your search stops here. A small family run cafe that serves authentic Parsi food, which gives the feeling of being home made and is super delicious. Their dhansak, patiyo are really good. Nimbu pani and their adrak chai are a must have! Great value for money and reasonable portions.....

Amazing restaurant in JLT Dubai serving some seriously delicious Parsi food. Had dinner today and was thoroughly satisfied with everything I would look for in a restaurant. Will definitely recommend this place for a good wholesome meal. Also can't wait to try their ``Akoori`` for breakfast.

Superb food, vegetarian options decent, have the right selection on offer.
Loved the Parsi dhansak and cutlet which went very well with their in house cold coffee and a chili cheese toast by the side. Look forward to my next visit.

Awesome authentic Parsi food. Delicious dhansak accompanied with masala rice. The chicken cutlet followed by chicken sali was simply droolsome. Great food, great ambience, warm welcome by Roshni & quick service by friendly staff.
