Review - Copper Chimney In BKC, Mumbai

During childhood days, dining at Copper Chimney was reserved for special occasions. Nonstop chatter ruled our table, stalled only to relish mouthfuls of handmade naans dipped in dal makhani as children made loud sounds while crunching papads. Copper Chimney in Worli rules as a family favorite till date.

Nostalgia hit me hard as I stepped into the newest outlet of Copper Chimney that serves delicious North Indian and Mughlai cuisine within sleek new interiors in the busy business district of Mumbai - BKC. Memories of good times spent with family came rushing back and the wise one was right when he said ,"Good Food Means Good Mood."



The BKC outpost of Copper Chimney is spacious and the art deco influence sets the mood. A huge copper bell at the entrance makes for a good photo opportunity and quirky accents like traditional spice jars stand out in the space ruled by copper, wood and earthy tones. 



Enjoy a drink at an eye-catching bar, settle at one of the spacious table or opt for a private dining alcove - the choice is yours!



The menu is expansive and features handmade Indian breads, signature Indian curries made with select spices, favorites from the tandoor grill (clay oven), a section dedicated to "originals", starter plates, biryanis, indulgent desserts and more. The bar menu serves creative alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages where classic favorites are presented with a fresh perspective that highlights local ingredients. Khatta Panna - vodka infused with sweet and tart flavors of raw mango and fresh Indian basil was refreshing and Kalakhatta Margarita - a spicy, tangy spin on the classic Margarita; with tequila, kala khatta and chaat masala.

Do try the Delhi Shikanji - Indian version of lemonade made with fresh lime juice, chaat masala and mint, a definite thirst quencher.

We started with Tawa Imli Aloo - cubed, deep fried potatoes tossed in tangy, sweet chutneys and chaat masala - a favorite street side snack from North! Burrah Chops which literally mean "big kebab" were delicious with a melt-in-the-mouth texture. Prodding the Chef to know more, we came to know the secret - tender lamb chops, marinated overnight with hung yogurt and select Indian spices, cooked skillfully to impart the perfect flavor.

Next, we paired Chura Paratha - layered Indian flatbread, baked in tandoor till crisp with a smokey flavor served hand crushed with Rogan Josh - a delicious Kashmiri preparation that features slow cooked boneless lamb, marinated in 21 spice blend.

We also tried the Multigrain Roti made with whole wheat, ragi, bajra, oats, barley along with Dal Maharaja - made with charcoal simmered whole black lentils with mild taste of tomatoes and spices, finished with a dollop of home made butter.

From the biryani section we selected Parda Gosht Biryani - marinated boneless lamb pieces slow cooked along with long grained saffron rice in a sealed pot was aromatic with a mild flavor.

Indulgent desserts like Patiala Kulfi, Muzaffar - a Lucknow specialty and more tempted us but we chose to try some specials from the Mango menu (available till season lasts). Chilled Mango Chenna Rabdi - homemade chenna dunked in mango infused thickened milk and topped with fresh mango pieces made our day while Mango Mastani - a take on famous beverage from Pune, had dreamy layers of mango blended milk, mango ice cream, chopped fresh mango and topped with nuts.
