Mumbai’s most authentic Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Thai eateries

Jade Crasto
The desire for Southeast Asian cuisine has struck Indians hard, with scores of eateries springing up across the country. However, only a few of them maintain loyal to the cuisine’s traditions rather than “Indianizing” it. If you want to acquire the actual essence of Japanese, Korean, Chinese, or Thai food and not just any old and boring hakka noodles, then head to these eateries that will blow your taste buds away!

Kuuraku is a true Japanese restaurant on Bandra’s Linking Road and is all you would expect a restaurant in Japan to be. It includes hardwood fixtures and furnishings, as well as square Japanese curtains, and the most pleasant employees, who greet you with the customary Japanese greeting upon entering. To comply with Japanese dining customs, you must place your shoes in little wooden lockers since you cannot eat while wearing your shoes. Another truly Japanese feature is that you can watch your meal being produced in front of you by smiling cooks in their glass kitchen. Salads, sushi, gyozas, skewered meats, ramen, matcha, and anything else you might want in an authentic Japanese restaurant are available, and a dinner here will still be less expensive than at finer Asian restaurants.
