Meet the team

A successful restaurant is one where customers love to return, time and time again, based on a great experience they had. The experience is so much more than good food – it is also about the atmosphere, the overall ambience and feel of the place.

We believe creating this environment starts with the right people – and we would like you to meet some of the team at The Mumbai Mansion.

Our diverse team has many individuals with unique skills and talents which all help enrich your experience when visiting us.
