Dinning out : Sahib Sindh and Sultan

While dinning out on a corporate prowl, I joined few of my colleagues heading up to a nice place called, “Sahib, Sindh and Sultan”….no don’t read it like “pati, patni aur who”…that’s what came to my mind first when I saw/ heard the name.


The experience helped me relish the Mughal magnificence and colonial royalty that to in the heart of city, add to it the nostalgic memories of Mumbai trains, yes, you need to visit “Sahib Sindh Sultan” recollecting the train that made first Indian rail journey in 1853 from BoriBunder ( currently known as Chatrapati Shivaji terminus) to Thane.


Dining here on a plush Pullman coach style dining car, with leather upholstery, woodwork and frosted glass partitions.
With a choice to sit on platform or inside a train compartment itself, we opted for a choice of sitting on platform (as most of us would be drunk by end of the dinner and never wanted to derail the train!!). Sounding a station bells once in a while and even announcements make it to almost a real-time feeling. The iron pillars, a ticket counter, cafeteria and a library artwork catch the attention and add to the ambience.


The superbly aromatic and spicy food ranging from almost all north Indian states redefines taste with delicacies to offer. We opted for a unlimited corporate deal that gave us few starters adequate enough to forget the main course, yet with two veg and two non-veg dishes with basket of assorted roti’s, some curries and steam rice with choice of biryani’s and great desserts to finish them at a far stretchable limit of one’s appetite… all of this at a lump sum tag of Rs550 per person sounds a steal….I must say the food was good and tasty as per the expectations I had set for any restaurants run by BJN group.

Situated on the second floor of famous forum mall, in Koramangala, the “Sahib Sindh and Sultan” is a real tribute to the first rail journey that connected India like never before and the innovation conceptualized by BJN Group…

    I have been to that place and was amazed by the ambience. And the food is great too. And to make the experience even more real, a person comes near the ‘window’ selling tea and calling out ‘chai chai’ in true desi tea seller style, seen in railway stations across India.
