Come February, Taste of Mumbai promises to provide resident food lovers a unique space to explore, tickle their taste buds and enjoy a setting that displays an exceptional cultural vibe against the gorgeous backdrop of the Arabian Sea.

Pick delicacies from 12 restaurants, try items from over 50 food and drink producers and mingle with some of India’s greatest chefs such as Vicky Ratnani and Bill Marchetti – all under one roof.
