Bar Review: Laxmi (Andheri East)

Among 24-hour cockroach bars and shady places on AK Road, Andheri East, is a bar called Laxmi. Another decent bar on the same road is Maharaja, but Laxmi has a warmer vibe. There are many places with Laxmi in their name, Laxmi Palace, Laxmi Punjab, Laxmi Aero Punjab, something else called LP; some of these are places you can drink at all night long, the others are seriously shady places, so be careful what you’re walking into. This is what the restaurant & bar I’m talking about looks like.

What we usually drink here is McDowell’s Single Malt, a truly unique whisky. It has a strong oaky flavour that I can recognize even after drinking several pegs of any other whisky/whiskey. If you’re trying it for the first time, have it on the rocks or with water. Okay, back to Laxmi Restaurant & Bar.

The vegetarian starters at Laxmi are what we keep going back for. We discovered Paneer Cham Cham (minced veggies between layers of cheese in corn flour coating), a light and tasty snack. The Non-Veg Platter (assorted chicken kababs) and Prawns Tawa Fry are no match for the vegetarian starters.

This green dish is Vegetable Sagoti, a medium-spicy garlicky delight!

Check out the 24-hour bars around if you want to eat/drink/smoke after 1:30 a.m.
