Mumbai has many restaurants for brunches. Some hotels are famous just for their Sunday brunches. Lotus Cafe in JW Marriott in Juhu is known to be one of the best restaurants for Sunday Brunches. So when I was invited to the newly opened JW Cafe in JW Marriott, Sahar I was curious to know how the spread at the restaurant to be. Having visited Juhu hotel more than a couple of times, I was particularly interested in the Sunday Brunch by this newly opened hotel in Sahar.
On a late Sunday, JW Cafe was busy with patrons devouring themselves with the sumptuous spread that the restaurant had to offer. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t mesmerised. Cuisines right from Mumbai Chaat to Sri Lankan cuisine was available. The restaurant was serving a diverse group of patrons- it was evident from the variety of cuisines available. What I found most amusing is the attractive pricing package- starting from 2015 INR.
Now that’s what I call a real deal. One must have a really big appetite to at least try half of the spread available. I admit, I stuck to the safe bet of cold meats, waffles & sushi. I also did try a few items of the Sri Lankan cuisine but I didn’t like a liking as it was too spicy for my palette. What I really loved was the waffles and shamelessly took a double helping with different topping. People who have a “massive” sweet tooth will be happy to know that their dessert spread hosts over 40 varieties. Though I did not try the exotic sea food spread, I was told by friends and acquaintances that it’s a must try if you are a sea food lover. I had an opportunity to speak with Mr Abhijeet Adurkar, the restaurant manager of JW Cafe. Below are a few excerpts from our conversation.

The Alaskan Crabs, Waffles, Sushi and the New Arabic food. The Alaskan crabs are imported and not seasonal. It’s definitely a must try
