Copper Chimney reopened it’s door to dine-in after restaurants and cafés were shut down in the city due to the pandemic. Copper Chimney is back to business, and you can enjoy authentic Indian food across their outlets at BKC, Bandra (West), Kala Ghoda, Worli, and Thane. With all the safety protocols, you can relish every bite of the classic Indian food at your comfort and without any fear.
We were happy and ecstatic to visit Copper Chimney (BKC) outlet after a hiatus of eight months. Well, the first thing we were vigilant about was the safety standards, and they stood by it. Upon reaching the reception, the staff checked us for temperature and sanitized our hands. Another team re-sanitized the table in front of us for double precautions. We were pleased to see a UV Steriliser that sterilizes all crockery and cutlery. Even the water bottle was sanitized.
The ambiance is warm, with art décor that sets the mood right for dining. There are photos souvenir at the entrance that shows the prominent people of Copper Chimney. You cannot miss the vintage bronze bells with wooden clappers that symbolizes the beginning of a fantastic dining experience. The floor Is spacious with a community table, seating for two pax, family seating, and space for office gatherings. We took the seat next to the window to see the outside view.
To further safeguard patrons, the menu is changed to a paper format (use and throw) to avoid multiple people touching the same menu. There is also a buffet and corporate meal box service if you are not ready for an a la carte menu. Copper Chimney started in 1972, and they made Indian food unforgettable. With 48 years of continuous service, they’ve created a perfect space for them in customers’ minds. The menu is a tribute to Indian food with slow cooking techniques and cooking styles ranging from Delhi to Peshawar.
We started with a Chargrilled Cheese Mushroom with fresh mushroom stuffed with cheddar paneer and pudina. From the non-vegetarian tandoori grills, we had Bhatti Murg Tikka made of marinated grilled chicken in Bhatti masala with a pinch of black pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon. For the main course, we ordered the Parda Chicken Biryani that came all prepared with saffron rice in a steamy sealed pot, and Murg Makhani where succulent boneless chicken melts in your mouth accompanied with Roomai Roti & Onion Paratha. We ended with a luscious and delicious thick Lucknowi rabdi dessert called Muzaffar.
After we finished eating, the staff handed us a dining kit that is specially designed and sanitized for a safe and comfortable dining experience. Due to the mask, we couldn’t hear the staff properly, but they were impeccable and flawless despite that. They never took off the safety equipment despite the discomfort. Hats off to the team.
While we ended for the day, we were thinking about coming back again to try those dishes we missed this time. Copper Chimney (BKC) forms a beautiful destination for the corporate crowd, afternoon lunches, get-togethers, celebrations, and for any auspicious occasions. So make sure when you visit Copper Chimney, eat like a king, and leave the place happy and content.
