Review: Saptami at Holiday Inn Mumbai

Saptami at Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport is a great place for multi cuisine-dining in a luxurious and spacious environment. But be warned, this lobby-level restaurant at the four star hotel is already pretty popular and long queues are inevitable for those who turn up late for the buffet breakfast. During our recent weekend staycation at the hotel, we enjoyed an indulgent dinner and refreshing breakfast at Saptami and came away quite impressed and comfortably satiated. Here is a visual account of our forays into their culinary offerings.

Lots of bright light, thanks to floor to ceiling windows

served as a great precursor to the courses that would soon grace our plates.

Ambience is very important to us when it comes to eating out – after all, great music, seating and lighting are as crucial to the fine dining experience as the taste and presentation of the dishes themselves. Saptami scored well on all aspects and we were led to a nice corner table – we hate sitting in the midst of a busy restaurant.

while breakfast was a beguiling melange of assorted cheese,

and fresh fruits for an even fresher start to the day.

Maintaining great taste, presentation and quality across such an exhaustive array of dishes couldn’t have been an easy task but the staff at Saptami managed it with aplomb. There was something to delight everyone at the dinner and breakfast buffets along with juices and a choice of still and sparkling water. But we have to say, the attentive service and friendly host were the icing on the cake.

Saptami at Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport is open everyday from 6 to 10:30 AM for breakfast, 12 noon to 3 PM for lunch and 7 to 11:30 PM for dinner. For reservations, call +91 9004617824 or 022 40851895.
