Our Review: 4 / 5:
Housed inside a colonial bungalow, Britannia & Company Restaurant is currently being run by Mr Boman Kohinoor – a third generation Kohinoor since it opened its doors in 1923. Hardly anything’s changed here- neither the ambience nor the décor, you will still spot the same bentwood furniture imported from Poland during the eatery’s early years. They have a cut out of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate at the restaurant as a part of their decor, as they love the Royals. Coming to their food, this place is known for serving the berry pulao – a recipe that was brought to life by the late Mrs Bachan Kohinoor. Inspired from her days in Iran, she decided to introduce the special Iranian pulao to the restaurant, and it has been a hit ever since. Here, they serve seven kinds of berry pulao, with barberry still being imported from Iran to retain its authenticity. Finally ending your meal with Caramel custard would be a perfect finish. Service is below par and was the only disappointing part of our experience. Britannia has stood the test of time and history and it’s your chance to be a part of legacy. .
