It’s been almost 10 months since I last wrote a review for a restaurant. Sheesha Sky Lounge in Juhu perhaps is the first place since lock down that I’ve visited for dine-in.
About the place – Sheesha Sky Lounge is a place for foodies who love lip-smacking food, sip some good cocktails, and smoke sheesha! They can seat up to 100 people that show how spacious the place is. This place has existed for a very long time and many consider this to be,
1. Top 10 restaurants in Mumbai for sheesha
2. The best sheesha restaurant in Mumbai
3. One of the most famous restaurant in Mumbai, and finally,
4. Perhaps one of the best restaurant in Mumbai for dinner.
Yes, the last one might confuse you but after reading my review, you’ll know why this is not just a sheesha place but is quite more than that.
Safety measures – The staff in this Sheesha Juhu restaurant wears masks, maintains distance, and they have a sanitizer on each table. The same applies to the Sheesha lounge in Veera Desai and Sheesha Bandra too.
Apart from this, they have a huge space and ensure that not everyone gets cramped up. Each table has enough distance and hence you can also consider this to be one of the best restaurant in Mumbai for couples.
Location – It’s situated near Juhu Church and close to Juhu Beach. It’s a 10-15 minute rickshaw ride from both Andheri and Vile Parle station (depending on traffic).
Here’s what we tried on our visit to the best sheesha restaurant in Mumbai:
Mocktails – We had 3 cocktails namely – Spicy Guava, a Watermelon cooler, and Blue Lagoon. Out of these, I found the Spicy Guava to be an amazing drink. It packed a punch.
I will only recommend it for those who love spice and masala!If you’re looking for a tastier option, a watermelon cooler is perfect. For those who love a sweet mocktail, go for the blue lagoon.

Food – We tried 2 appetizers and 2 mains:
Gosht Barra Chaap – Perhaps the best choice came from the staff. We tried this variant that was well cooked, marinated with spices, and tastes so so good. It is not sweet at all and is good for those who love medium spicy meat appetizers.
Murgh Tangdi Kulfi Kebab – Chicken drumsticks are wrapped in silver foil, marinated with cheese, cream, and infused with black peppers. The result is a creamy, tasty chicken appetizer. Yes, this is not spicy at all and is more on the creamy and sweet side. But it is damn filling.
Daal Fry – Daal has never felt so good. They’ve made it well and this was purely ordered as a companion to our main course in mutton. While we opted for the yellow daal, you can go for the Kaali daal as the staff recommends it.
Gosht Tawa Barra – This one’s a Lucknow special. Expect a thick gravy that includes minced lamb kebab, along with ginger, and other spices. This is not a sweet gravy but it tastes so good. You’ll surely love it.
For the mains, we tried both garlic and butter naan. Both were amazing and if you’re not a fan of naan, you can opt for rice variants like steam rice, jeera rice, pulao, etc.
Desserts – In desserts, they have just 2 options namely – Gulab Jamun and Phirni. Starting with the Jamun, it was hot, it was sweet, and yes it’s worth your money. Next up is Phirni which was mildly sweet, creamy, and the best I’ve had in a while. So if you love phirni, do not miss ordering it from here.
Sheesha – They have amazing sheesha that’s served as follows:
Happy Hours Price between 12 pm – 6 pm = 599 rupees (with taxes)
Price from 6 pm onward – 999 (with taxes)
Now you know why they are called as the best sheesha restaurant in Mumbai
My overall verdict:
The quality of food and mocktails is good. The staff is knowledgeable and is always waiting to give you the best of service. They also have good sheesha, and it’s a space for small and large groups alike. So head here and have a great time.
