The food culture of Mumbai, just like its way of life, is a potpourri of fascinating tastes and flavours. The city’s romance with quirky bistros continues with the opening of the new Olive Bistro at Goregaon. After their successful stint at Khar under the brand name of Olive Bar & Kitchen since the year 2000 and exploring the Delhi-NCR market with Olive Bistro at Cyber Hub, they’ve now extended into the Mumbai market with the same brand name of Olive Bistro. Located at the ever bustling Oberoi Mall in Goregaon, this place successfully creates the feel of a beautiful European Bistro with some delicious food, blended with a chic New York vibe.
The place has a distinct appeal to it. The moment you enter the Bistro, you are greeted with a food truck where pizzas are prepared.

Great meals are accompanied with great drinks. The Bistro has a wide selection of unique mocktails to choose from that go very well with the food.
The sinfully satisfying burgers and the sandwiches are a must-have if you are visiting the Bistro. The Pulled Pork Sandwich, The Dirty BLT and The Double Decker- if you are Non-Vegetarian and are craving for a meat fest- this might just be the place for you!
