Team CIRQA is excited to bring you special experiences.

It’s finally time to welcome our latest addition, the CIRQA Dining Room!

Complete with a fresh new look and layout, the dining room is our ground floor restaurant. It is located in the heart of Todi Mills, Lower Parel, Mumbai.

Feel immediately welcomed in our stylish Dining room space indoors, on the ground floor. You can also find your cozy corner in the beautiful outdoor patio. Most importantly, we know you’ll want to tuck into our indulgent menu inspired by “Bombay and the World”!

Who is behind CIRQA Dining Room?

Six months after the successful launch of c. 1960, our cocktail bar and events space, our co-founders are pleased to reveal their full-fledged restaurant concept in Lower Parel. The CIRQA 1960 and the CIRQA Dining Room concepts were launched by Flavour Pot Foods' brothers Pankaj and Avinash Gupta in collaboration with F&B entrepreneur Adele de Fontbrune. The team’s main inspiration was taken from Bombay’s culinary heritage – as well as its general cultural heritage!

So, what can you expect?

“With CIRQA Dining Room, we wanted to create Bombay's most exciting yet nostalgic foodie hub: a restaurant and neighborhood bar located in Lower Parel, Mumbai.”

In the menu, Bombay's journey through food appears through signature bites and indulgent plates.

What food can we expect at CIRQA Dining Room, Lower Parel?

The menu explores nostalgic favorites with a touch of Eastern influences. It nods to the grills of Persia and the masterfully hand-pulled noodles of Tangra in Kolkata, all in parallel to Bombay's inclination toward not-always-so-Italian pasta, and the city’s love for French baking techniques and of course, butter and cheese!
