Mumbai Chennai Express
Mumbai Chennai Express is a casual dining restaurant where you can eat inside a train as the interiors emulate the insides of an Indian Railway compartment. From the walls to the seats, it’s a mirror image of a train. Right from the door to the interiors everything there reminds you of the trains that you took as a kid if you have grown up in India.

A fairly new restaurant that started last year, 1947 is soaked in that patriotism and love for India. It’s almost a page from the Indian history book, and is homage to the era when India earned its independence. The old look ambiance is right from the entrance where a huge cannon is placed along with the wooden carvings and inside too the black benches and dark curtains add up to the historic theme. The walls have pictures of Indian freedom fighters as well as newspapers of that time while enjoying a delicious array of authentic Indian dishes. The restaurant has a vintage feel to it due to dim lights, texture on the walls and the waiter’s costumes.
