The centuries-old marriage of Chinese and Indian flavors is insanely popular throughout India; but it was practically unknown in Boston until MUMBAI CHOPSTIX came on the scene in spring of 2010.
This 100-seat restaurant with an outdoor patio on trendy Newbury Street combines Chinese ingredients and cooking techniques with Indian seasonings (and sometimes vice versa). Often known as Hakka cuisine, it was developed in the 1800s when Chinese immigrants flowed into the city of Calcutta, forming a thriving Chinatown.
The addition of Indian chiles and peppers, spices like garlic and ginger, and sauces enriched with yogurt adds interest to native Chinese dishes, making them complex, delicious and addictive.
MUMBAI CHOPSTIX was designed by the region’s foremost feng shui master. The décor follows basic feng shui precepts that combine fire and wood, wood and water, metal and earth, ensuring positive energy or “chi” throughout. Original art adorns the walls, and there are three distinct dining areas to choose from on three levels.
