Mumbai rains have always had a love/hate affair with the hustlers of the city, and despite the lows linked to the chaotic lifestyle which comes during the monsoon, there's one element which changes the tone of the season — FOOD! 

Some might like their Maggi, others their bhajjiyas and chai, but for those who like their taste of comfort and luxury, Gallops at Mahalaxmi Racecourse has a little something to comfort the palate during Mumbai rains. 

Gallops, the iconic destination of South Mumbai is the oldest restaurant in the verdant environs of the Mahalaxmi Race Course, was started by three friends, Rahul Malik, Jasmine Singh and Bobby Singh, in September 1986. The restaurant over the last three decades, has become a much sought after venue for its classic multi cuisine menu, personalised service and an ambience that beautifully blends old school charm with breathtaking view of the race course, walking tracks, horses being led to their stables and vast lawns of this sprawling green landscape.

As the three partners celebrate three decades of their partnership at Gallops, the landmark restaurant presents for the first time a proper English High Tea experience, with Tea Charlies and a Tea Service that can be savoured while soaking in the views during the Monsoons.

The High Tea menu by Gallops’ Culinary team comprises classics like English Butter Cookies, Scones with Highland Cream, Chilli Cheese Toast, Macarons in various flavors, Meringue Tartlet and much more. 

Our picks from the Tea Charlie were the classic Butter Cookies, which were creamy, fresh, and a joy to the palate. The Mutton samosas were a good Indian touch to the high tea experience, as the savoury section also boasted of Chilli Cheese Toast, Chutney Sandwiches. 


The menu has a range of tea selections from TGL Co. and our pick was Mogo Mogo Green Tea, which was an amalgamation of green sencha tea, banana, mango, passion flower leaves, sunflower, guava and cornflower. The tea was as aromatic and refreshing as this decoction could be. We also tried the Geisha Green Tea, with a base of Green Sencha tea and additions like Green Bancha tea, Green Kukicha tea, sesame bamboo shoots, schizandra berries, ginger and roses.

According to Jasmine Singh, 

While Gallops has always had a large following of loyal patrons, we thought a High Tea service would be lovely amidst this beautiful, picketed landscape that lets one escape the hustle bustle of the city, as you sip a cup of tea and savour some goodies from our menu.

So if you want to experience a comforting high tea selection, while it pours outside, Gallops will take you on a happy culinary journey, and you won't even need your umbrellas on this one!
