Dorabjee & Sons Reviews and Ratings - Central Street Camp, Pune


Rated 5.0 by Supriya Chaubal

This nostalgic place is in the by lanes of Camp area. Many new places have sprung up since the last decade however this one is historical. If your friends/relatives are visiting Pune, and you want to show them an age old famous family run eatery.. this good old dinner.. pops out of one’s mind - Dorabjee and Son’s since the late 1800. Nothing changed here. The food menu is still the same, courteous staff, service impeccable, simple, clean yet comfortable seating and portion size( pricing) is perfect. Quality of food is amazing as usual. I was in the area and I took a parcel home. Pictures aren’t that amazing as we sat down to eat immediately. From the Chicken cutlets , to the Salli Ghost and pav(imperial bakery), to biryani, ending the meal with Lagan nu Custard. Every thing spot on! Total amount of Rs1300/-spent.

Dorabjee & sons has been around for over a century(established in 1878). This is one of the restaurants my dad talks about, having visited with his friends back in his school days. On one of my recent walks around Shivaji Market area I stopped at Dorabjee & sons for a quick lunch. This was my first visit to this gem of Pune and I was pleasantly surprised at how crowded the place was: not with the usual questionable groups of men, but families and even a group of ladies out on a kitty. The place maintains good hygiene and the service is super quick and impeccable. The food is very affordable and authentically Parsi. We obviously started with the Lagan Nu Custard: the Baked Custard, one of the two dessert options on the menu. There were a lot of custard plates being served around us and I was quite tempted to not skip dessert. The custard is really something else; the top is crisp like Creme Brulee and it wobbles like a Pannacotta. The Custard at Dorabjee was made with generous amounts of Cinnamon, and the addition of this spice gave the Custard a very unique and fresh taste. For lunch we had Egg Curry and whole wheat Chapatis: just a very simple, homely and wonderfully delicious curry. Paired with the Ardeshi's Raspberry Soda, this meal was just top notch. All this for just 270₹, this place is definitely value for money! Also, I'm definitely going back to try their Dum Biryani which was a speciality of the place.

When you are visiting the oldest running restaurant in any city, the expectation is not just that the food is great, but also that there will be a sense of nostalgia around the place. And we were not disappointed on both counts... Out on a food trail with friends visiting the city for the first time, one obvious destination was Dorabjee & Sons. Unlike some other reputed places in the city, the waiter here were cordial and served with a smile. They even agreed to cancel one order, when we realised we had ordered in excess. All this without a fuss. We were suggested chicken dhansak, chicken farcha, patrani machhi, mutton biryani and Lagan nu Custard in desserts. We skipped the fish and the biryani, and instead went for chicken cutlet. The rest were served in a jiffy. Don't know whether it was because we were very hungry, but all the items tasted brilliant. Starting from the egg coated farcha, the crispy cutlet, to the very well cooked dhansak, everything was wiped off the plate in no time. And even though we were full, we couldn't miss that custard, which was so very delicious! All this for Rs. 1050/- was truly VFM.

I live in Kolkata but I have family in Pune. Whenever I visit Pune I always make it a priority to visit Dorabjee & Sons Resteraunt in Camp Area. I love this place. I yearn for Authentic Parsi food and this establishment has provided exactly what I need. The Dhansaak Daal and Chicken Frachaas are really amazing. The staff of the eatery are also friendly and the owner of this establishment is very humble and approachable. This Resteraunt brings back memories from my childhood. Great Job.

Ordered paya and mutton biryani, was wonderful this place hidden in the bylanes of camp is a gem. My only complaint is there was no roti or paratha to eat with the paya cause id there was then this would have been a 5 star. Lovely service not bad ambience considering the place. The food is definitely worth the money as they say on the menu. A little bit more of the food quantity would do no harm as the food is that delicious that is also where the 5th star was lost
