Vegetarian Food Review: Sheesha Sky Lounge (Juhu)

It’s just a name; Sheesha Sky Lounge has no view to offer except one of the lounge itself, which you can look around at as much as you like because there is hardly anyone ever around. Tables are wiped and the seating is dusted; Sheesha Sky Lounge waits for diners to show up to make the sections ready but the moisture from the sea is too much, and the sofas are damp and smelly. We opt for a another table and it’s slightly wet as well but at least the wooden chairs don’t stink. The bartender is behind the bar but there’s no one at it and the waiters are finding it awkward to have people in their restaurant. The huge TV screen showing a cricket match does nothing for us, so we select an ordinary lager from the drinks menu, which has an impressive collection of spirits and wines and no good beer. The food is unexpectedly good; my mother is rarely impressed with starters in most such places but says it’s the best paneer she’s had at a restaurant in a long time, and she likes the potato starter even better. The main course is excellent: the black dal, vegetable Kolhapuri and breads are nearly perfect. [I got to try only the vegetarian fare at Sheesha Sky Lounge as I went there with the family, and I won’t be going back to sample the meat kababs and other non-vegetarian food unless the place gets cheaper, which means that was my first and last meal at Sheesha Sky Lounge, Juhu.]

    I’ll try out Sheesha as I like the dungeon like feel of this place…dark, dinghy and less crowded. Recommend any more such middle-class Gentlemen’s restobars in Bombay around Juhu or international airport area? It should not attract seedy crowd and teenagers, collegians etc.

      I feel I’ve started connecting better with people in their 30’s and even 40’s…. I would avoid them in past. I’m myself 30 now and it makes sense to connect with mature and intellectual people rather than carefree, irresponsible Gen.Y, Z etc. They may be easygoing but they’re rather aimless and shallow. Also now I really get bored of conversations on entrance exams, Kolaveri Di, pornography, latest MMS. The girls in their 20s though can be different, they’re at least 5-10 years ahead of the guys learning curve when it comes to maturity and taking life seriously.

      That day one of those collegian kids called me “uncle”, I felt proud. This means I don’t look boyish anymore and have a mature designation and responsibility even 1-2 years back, it never felt nice being treated as one of the homies by these asshole yuppies, start-up dreamers etc.

      Dude! There are many other places in Mumbai that serve really good food. This lounge is very blah. Tell me when you’re coming to Bombay!
