Malabar Street Kitchen : Good addition to the culinary landscape of Dadar


Malabar Street Kitchen (MSK) is all about celebrating and showcasing the food of the Malabar Coast, making extensive use of fresh and authenti ingredients from along the southwestern coast of India.

Founded by Chefs Advaith Shetty and Siddhesh Mahadik, Malabar Street Kitchen has been open to the foodies of Mumbai both at its storefront in Dadar, Mumbai (Opp. Portuguese Church) and on Swiggy and Zomato(delivery apps) since January 2024.

Ghee Roast, Sukka, Appams, Neer Dosa and our favourite Coconut Serradura are all stand-out items on the MSK menu!

Chefs Advaith and Siddhesh met when they were students at the Institute of Hotel Management in Dadar, Mumbai and have been friends ever since.

Malabar Street Kitchen : Home style food inspired from our favourite regional kitchens of South India.

Both then studied at Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney, and have worked across several leading kitchens across India, Australia and New Zealand.

As they finessed their culinary skills in different environments, they both always dreamt of opening a restaurant that serves fuss-free, tasty and comfort food to diners.

In 2023, they made the decision to move back to India to finally realize this dream.

With Malabar Street Kitchen, life has come full circle for them as they begin their dream in the Dadar neighborhood, right where it all started.

The MSK team has painstakingly sourced its recipes from kitchens across South India.

The Kori Gassi is a recipe of Chef Advaith’s grandmother, the Stew is a staple of one of our line cooks, the team spent a lot of time in Mangalore trying to perfect different recipes like the Bafat curry.

To cater to the diverse appetites of diners in Mumbai, the team is also putting a modern spin on the food, serving rolls made of flaky Malabar paratha stuffed with crowd-favourites like Cicken Ghee Roast or Gunpowder Aloo or the MSK version of KFC (Kerala Fried Chicken).

For vegetarians, the Cauliflower Ghee Roast or the Veg Stew with Appams are always a hit! At M518SK, our core philosophy is always to bring happiness to others through food.

The menu is constantly evolving, with new specials every week.

Through it all, we remain committed to bringing simple, no-frills and REALLY tasty food to all our customers.

We are excited to be part of Mumbai’s ever-evolving dining community and can’t wait to have you all come taste our food!

Beautiful Authentic South Indian Cuisine. The Chicken Ghee Roast and Vegetable Stew with outstanding..

Their in house appams and Malabar Parathas are signature and very well made… The unique wraps, ghee rice and even Seradurra is addictive… We are repeat customers of this place. Do try.

Was happy to find this quaint restaurant across Portuguese church. We absolutely relished the Malabar parathas with Cauli ghee roast and appams with mutton bafat.

This kitchen has a lot to offer and it is very evident from their specially curated menu by the amazing chef’s/founders. The food here is authentic and absolutely delicious.

There is something to suitable for everyone’s palate, from spicy ghee roast to mild but flavour packed stews, the Malabar Street Kitchen has got you covered.

This new place opposite Dadar Portuguese church serves authentic Kerela and Manglorean food. The neer dosa and chicken sukka are a perfect combination.

The veg stew is absolutely divine and goes well with appam or their soft and flaky Malabar parothas.

Their version of the Goan sweet dish serradura simply melts in your mouth.

Overall a very good addition to the culinary landscape of Dadar.

Definitely going back to try the Biryani.The coconut serradura was delightful and a must try.
