What is Gurukripa famous for?
The most famous thing about the place is the Chole samosa for sure. But people have also grown to like its Tikki chole and a wide variety of sweets. Samosa Chole, Tikki Chole, Falooda and gulab jamun are the most famous dishes here.
How’s the Ambiance?
Ok, there’s not much of the ambiance to talk about, since the place is open and you have to stand and eat your food. After visiting the place, I read online that there is AC seating as well. But I failed to notice it while I was there, so I can’t really confirm this.
Probably they have both AC and Non AC seating, but we had chole samosa-like every other Mumbaikar, out in the open.
How’s the food?
Of all the mentioned dishes, we tried out only one, and definitely it was chole samosa. The chole samosa costed around 45RS.
In that you get two samosa, along with chole and onion. Ok to be frank, the chole samosa was Ok, not that great. Many of you might have a view otherwise.
The samosa was of medium size. and the filling inside was also very little. But for 45RS it looks OK.
Next time when I am here, I will definitely try their chole Tikki and Gulab Jamun.
The place is quite famous and you will find this place crowded at any time of the day. If you are visiting two-three people, try to order different dishes so that you are able to taste all of them.
I would rate the samosa 3.5/5. The service was pretty fast and you don’t have to wait for a long time for the food here.
You should even try out sweets here, since they pretty famous.
If you are around Sion and want a quick cheap snack, then this the place to be.
