20+ Eateries That Prove Thane Is A Food Lover’s Paradise

There are lots of Mumbai lists when it comes to food but Thane has some really nice places you should definitely check out! The abandoned cousin of Mumbai, Thane is actually the older city of the two. With a spirited, flamboyant and dynamic population of communities from literally different parts of the world, it is a given that the palate of Thane is varied as well! Here is a list of top food places or you can say the best places to eat in Thane that you should definitely not miss out on whether you are a Thanekar or not!

1. Misal – Mamledar Misal

Let us get the obvious out of the way! Serving since 1949, Mamledar’s Misal has to be tried to be believed! Go for the Tikhat (spicy) one and don’t forget to call for a glass of cold buttermilk on the side.

The best Pav Bhaaji in Thane has to be Amruta’s near the station. While Ghatkopar’s Achija wins all over Mumbai, Amruta’s is one of the most flavourful Pav Bhaajis this side of town! Special mentions: Hotel Veggies at Castle Mill comes second.

This is a list of not so obvious, but must-try places. We have purposely not included a Gajanan Vada Pav or a Kunj Vihar, precisely because there are better or less famous options available today. Do you know a place in Thane that people must try out, either for a particular dish or because it isn’t so well known? Tell us in the comments!
