After a very rocky start (and several slightly inedible meals), The Table has become one of Mumbai’s most popular stand-alone restaurants. It’s whacky décor and seemingly extensive menu of small and large plates (they change for lunch, brunch and dinner) make it a place you have to keep going back to.
It’s a bit of a challenge spending time with my family now that I don’t live at home anymore. It’s rare when everyone’s home for dinner at the same time, and it just so happened that we were all home for dinner one night chatting about our plans for the bank holiday (YAAAAY!) the next day. It had been ages since we’d been out for lunch together, so we decided to make a day of it. Called a couple of places and settled on The Table. I know I've reviewed this place before, but with the ever changing menu, it almost feels like it's new every time I visit!
As you must know by now, we’re a family of foodies who more often than not don’t have any sense of quantity. The food was great, as always, with a few exceptions.
We ordered a massive amount of starters, because you know, we like to eat lots :D
Fries with Cajun Mayo, and our old favourite: Zucchini Spaghetti with sliced almonds and Parmesan. I've tried making it at home multiple times, it just doesn't have the same amazing flavour it does here.

We'd reached a point where no one could eat any more. In addition to this, we had also ordered Korean Beef with a Kim chi pancake, tenderloin tacos and a warm chèvre salad. All fantastic in their own rights, but I was too busy stuffing my face to take pictures before they were attacked. We decided we would split 2 mains - the beefy mac and cheese which is a mac and cheese with minced beef baked into it, and the provencal lamb ragout which I wasn't too crazy about because it tasted a lot more like mutton to me than it did lamb. The rest of my table loved it though. My brother's girlfriend orders it every chance she gets!

We had grand plans to shop, visit people and generally bum around after lunch, which all went to pot. We stumbled to our respective cars, I’m not sure what the others did, but I drove straight home and took a long, long nap.
All that eating is exhausting!
