Review: “Have been to Cafe Metro a million times, on account of it being the closest half decent restaurant from my college. After a hectic college day, we would traipse to Cafe Metro for some unhealthy albeit lip-smacking butter chicken, reshmi kebab and tandoori chicken. Their location is their strongest USP; right next to the beautiful but criminally expensive Metro cinema.”- Ishita Chaudhary

6. Ice N Rolls: NM College
This place is a vegetarian’s delight. There’s an inherent bulkiness to the Ferrero rocher shake and the pasta can barely be contained in its designated vessel. Lunch break would not be the same for a NM-iite without this stall.
Review: “A nice vegetarian place to visit for fast food in vile parle. Things to try are the sandwiches, fries and the rolls. However, the highlight of this place is their shakes. One of these will surely keep you coming back again.” -Dhanraj Parekh

Every visit to this city is incomplete without devouring a Mumbaikars favourite snack- Vadapav. Ashok Vadapav famously known as the Kirti College Vadapav is one of the best Vadapavs in Mumbai. The perfect taste brings instant happiness to your lips.
Review: “ Probably the best Vada Pav that money can buy. You might have to wait for a good 5–10 minutes before you get yours, but boy is it worth it. The Vada and the Chutni is unique in taste. The Vada Pav is served with Chura, which adds to the flavour of the dish. Ashok makes sure that the oil is changed regularly to keep the quantity on check. If you haven’t tried this one still, you’ve definitely missed something.”-Manav Shah
Prices: Vadapav- Rs 20
