The historic city of South Bombay is endowed with traditional Parsi establishments. While most of them are clustered in the Fort and Churchgate region, the one that stands out is Koolar & Co. at Matunga. This unique cafe holds the distinction of being the sole eatery offering authentic Parsi food items within the vicinity of Dadar, Sion, Matunga, and neighbouring areas.
