Parsi Food in Mumbai – RESTAURANT SASSANIAN

Parsi food in its frank and relaxed ambience …

Parsi (or Parsee) is one of two Zoroastrian communities (the other being Iranis) majorly located in India and few in Pakistan. Parsis migrated from Greater Iran to Sindh and Gujarat, between the 8th and 10th century CE

The long presence of the Parsis in the Gujarat and Sindh areas of India distinguishes them from the smaller Zoroastrian Indian community of Iranis, who emigrated from Iran to South Asia in the 19th century and early 20th-century.

As is also the case for the Parsis, the Iranis predominately settled in the west-coast of India, in the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra. A concentration of their people live in and around the city of Mumbai.  (Source: Wikipedia)

SASSANIAN RESTAURANT

I have been to this restaurant, located at Marine Drive in Mumbai, a  few times before – the first time accidently, the second intentionally; this time and after a very long time – loyally, to relish the tasty Parsi food in its frank and relaxed ambience.

  1. Stumbled upon your post while going through the explore page. Their chicken patties are my favourite. My late maternal grandparents, used to visit once a month to bring home patties and garam mawa cake. Thank you for taking me back to some wonderful nostalgic times by reading your beautiful piece! 🙂
