Lunch Buffet Near Mumbai Airport

Lunch Buffet being set at Spice It, ibis
Thanks to a plethora of connecting flights from Mumbai, we often end up waiting for 2 to 3 hours at the airport. However, this time I decided to venture out and treat myself to a nice lunch near the domestic airport, instead of those boring (and expensive) cafes inside the terminal. On Google Local’s recommendation, I headed straight to the ibis hotel near Mumbai Airport.

The Place and People
Lunch is served buffet style as well as a la carte at their restaurant called ‘Spice It’. The place is quiet and very welcoming. Good enough to hang out for a couple of hours after the meal and have a discussion over a cup of coffee. The staff was very good to talk to and always tried to strike a general conversation, without trying to sell any service.

Buffet Spread
The lunch buffet is not a lavish one but perfect for a decent mid-journey meal. The spread was as expected from any restaurant in an economy hotel.

  • Salads: 5-6 types of fresh salads
  • Soups: Veg and Non-veg
  • Main Course: 2 Non-veg and 2 veg dishes, dal, rice etc.
  • Bread Basket: Good rotis, naans/parathas etc served hot and soft. Really good.
  • Made to order: A speciality, which I assume changes daily, made as per your order. Not great.
  • Extras: Papad, Pickles, Raita etc were good
  • Desserts: Some really nice looking pastries and choice of ice-creams.

Price
Rs.399 plus taxes. The food was definitely worth the bill.

Apart from food, ibis Mumbai is also a good place to stay near the Mumbai Airport.

There was a table in the open but I couldn’t imagine sitting next to the highway.
