Couple of weeks back, Kalpesh and I wanted to go for a nice drive and eat at some place green. Last minute request for suggestions threw up names of two dhabas, which were near Lonavala. However, we left the house only at 1PM and were quite famished by the time we left, so didn't think we could go without food for the next one and a half hour. So we decided to head to Kharghar. Last time we had gone to the ISKON temple at Kharghar, we were totally taken in by the green hills along the Utsav Chowk CISF road. We had seen some 4-5 eating joints along that road and we decided to check those out.

At A Glance
The Whole DealWe drove around the stretch of the road, took a slight detour to go near the foothill, click some snaps before we headed to this cluster of restaurants we had seen along the road. We chose Dawat because of its outdoor seating. The maître d greeted us at the entrance, and when we headed towards a table in the outside seating area, asked us if we would prefer to sit inside in the AC. Now there aren't too many outdoor seating options in Mumbai, so we weren't about to miss this opportunity. Plus the weather was pleasant; it was drizzling slightly, so not having an AC was just fine.

I would definitely recommend Dawat to everyone. I for one want to go there again to try more variety of food. Another big plus for this restaurant is their super kid-friendly staff. Devansh was made to feel like a star. I am adding this to my must-eat-at list of places in Navi Mumbai.
