What a place!

So if you are a complete fan of all things girly, go to Candies. It has the most beautiful set-up. This place is set in a bungalow which belonged to a Parsi guy. Now this three storey place houses a wide range of snacks and meals at a very cheap rate and worlds best chocolate thick shake.

This place makes for a very romantic set up during the rains. The terrace has one table with an umbrella, so when it is raining, the world will leave you alone and you can enjoy your date.

Candies has this tiny cutesy store which sells all things girly. Jewellery boxes, diaries, postcards, quirky jewellery, lamps, etc.. Avoid it all costs if you are low on cash, because you will end up spending all your food money there.

The food is made in bulk in the morning and by evening time they start selling it at a cheap rate to finish their stock. So if you are lucky you will get some hakka noodles at half price.

But also there is a possibility that your favourite food will get finished early and they wont replenish it for you. SO go accordingly.

The quality of food is great. The indoors can get a little crowded and noisy sometimes, so you can head to the terraces.

GO ENJOY!

Good place for food and ambience

This is a very good place to hangout out with friends. If you're from the neighbouring colleges or areas, you'll always find someone familiar there. The food is great and so is the ambience. The servers are also very prompt and quick to attend to you. It is always crowded on the ground floor, so you'll have to walk all the way up till you come to an even better place.

The Beef Lasagna here is good. Don't know if you get it anymore after the ban though.

Mind blowing place

Mind blowing place. A bungalow converted to a cafe. Ambience will make you come back to this place again and again. And discounted prices after 8 pm. What more can you ask for Candies represents the spirit of Bandra which is very true in every sense. The beverages here are very good, especially the coffee which is real value for money at 40 rupees. Candies is a place to hangout with your buds, have a conversation, laugh, definitely eat and enjoy.

Young touch

Candies is the most popular eatery among the young crowd of Mumbai. It’s a rooftop restaurant in Bandra. Its looks like a big intercollege Cafeteria often brimmed with bubbling and chirping youngsters
Roasted chicken, spicy chicken roll and mini pastries are among the top sellers. The cheapest item is a flatbread for 0.07$, the most expensive ones are the mini meals, Asian dishes and Indian dishes at 2.43$ each. My favorite picks are the Lasagna - available in chicken and beef versions, and Spaghetti Bolognese. The Lasagna is deeply loaded with cheese. And the spaghetti served in Bolognese sauce reminds you of Minced Meat noodles. The meal completely fills you up and you won’t have room for even a sip of after meal drink.

Evergreen favorite place to chill

Candies is a sit-down cafe for all those people who want to relax and lay back or just need to get away from their ever busy Mumbai lifestyle.
This place has a great ambiance which gives you a Mediterranean feeling. I love the big bungalow seating concept.
The cupcakes are yum, the cheese veg bake is full of flavour. I like the vegetable puff and sandwiches, cheese and mushroom omelet.
Veg lasagne, Veg Bolognese, Potato cheese balls, Salad plate, French fries. Dessert enthusiasts will love this place. Food is tasty and mostly fast food is served here.
Great place for students and couples. They can fulfill all your cravings from starters to desserts.

Place for coffee break

This shop is located at Bandra west, nice place to have cakes and snacks. We ordered chicken kiev and chicken strogannoff along with other dishes. Both the dishes are good. Eggless items are also available here. If you do not want to sit then you can opt for take away. Service is also on time and no delay. Ambiance is also good.

Sweet tooth !

No restaurant can copy the style, interiors and feel of it. It's a cult place that one has to try to feel the vibe. Once you've managed to get your order, you're left to do as you please and sit at a table, on one of the many indoor or outdoor seating areas for as long as you wish.

Candies has a decent ambiance and what i like about the place the most is that they offer a wide range of desserts at a reasonable amount. My favorite is the chocolate lava cake and the strawberry cheesecake. Also i like how you can grab a quick bite while around Bandra. i also love the roast chicken sandwich there.

Ill treatment at candies bandra west

I went to candies at bandra west and really had a very bad experience. I was actually ill treated. Wanting to place my order at the counter, i kept calling out to the staff but no one listened. When one attendant finally looked at me, he only rudely replied saying " I'm taking an order, you can wait if you want, or you could leave." how could you talk so rudely.. to which he replied saying "you can go complain, i don't care". I cant understand why candies keeps such employees. I was so embarrassed that i left the place.. an observant there told me that she had the same experience!!!!

Dry Cupcakes

A lot of people recommended going to Candies on a recent trip to Bombay and so a friend and I decided to lunch here. While she had a Chicken Junlgi Sandwich, I had the Roast Chicken. The mains were lovely and the roast chicken with the fresh orange salad it came with was really refreshing after a long hot morning of shopping. When it came to the desserts, we had the red velvet cupcakes and the angry bird cupcakes. Both were really dry and crumbly and the icing on the top did not help much.

Desserts Galore!

One might wonder why Candies is 'the' place to hang out, well apart from the ambiance, the music, and the inner tree house architecture, the food is a major plus point. Candies delivers good quantity for a reasonable sum of money, that fits into every person's budget.
But what is most attractive about Candies is that it is heaven for sweet lovers. The dessert variety available is huge. One has a variety to choose from, whether it is cupcakes or cheesecakes. The cupcakes available are moist and have a wonderful, crispness to its base. Topped with cream it delivers a nice combination of snack in a box. There are other detailed desserts as well ranging from a huge piece of red velvet pastry, cheesecakes and tiramasu. Sponge cakes also have flavours and taste like the fresh homemade cakes just out of the oven. The flavours available are lemon, apple cinnamon, yogurt, etc. Hence. all in all it is a perfect place for people to go ahead and grab a dessert as it is a heaven for them

Young And Fresh Hangout Place!

I had visited this place in end of January with my college friends. Huge place with roof top ambiance. You get to see more of young crowd. As soon as I entered, I was like "Wow, such an Awesome Place!". But then I was disappointed! As I am Vegetarian, I really had limited option to choose from. Food wise I really disliked this place. I had ordered American Club Sandwich, they kept me waiting for my order for 20 mins saying we'll serve you warm sandwich. They took this long but sandwich wasn't warm. I then ordered some Garlic Breads and did find it edible enough. They serve good beverages. The "Bombay Blue Slush" was nice and refreshing. "Cappuccino" was good taste wise and quantity wise. This place is pocket friendly and good place to hangout with friends keeping the great food expectations aside. Overall, I would rate it as 2.5/5.

I visited Candies with my wife and friends. The entrance to Candies is small and hardly any space to park the car.
I wasn't happy with it but as soon as I entered the place I flowed with the ambiance. Its has an amazing ambiance along with food.
The staff needs to be little more vigilant about minor things.
A must visit place with if you live to eat..

I always thought this place reminds me of my friends and coming here without a one is not justified.

Its huge and food amazing. They have everything to suit everyone's taste buds.

I have been here couple of times and surely will keep going. I love their salad plate, thai red curry, green grass drink, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, etc.....

I love to find a nook here to chat with my friends over a very good food. Standing in the queue just helps you decide what you want to eat. By the time you come to counter just be ready to say what you want as you have to be quick.

Candies

Wanting to binge on or do some light snacking. Go for the rolls and the rotis here, The cold coffee is the best place. You wouldn't get a coffee of this kind even at a coffee parlor. The ambiance is simply wonderful during late evenings and seasons, especially Christmas. Try getting hold of a seating on the upper floors and you sure wont be disappointed. The staple Chinese noodles and Manchurian are worth a try, All of this and total VFM. The service is a little slow though because of the large crowd they need to serve.

This place.. oh boy! itz amazing, its like a maze.. every nook and corner has been used to make seating arrangements, there are special cozy places for couples as well ^_^.
And the food here, is pretty cheap.. and Chicken carbonanara is a Must,.. it's soooo cheeezzzzy... *Drool* and it can easily be eaten by 2 people. the Cold Coffee is good too.. though I'm not a big fan of the sandwiches i found it a little dry. A downfall however is that, it is self service, so if we are sitting on the 3rd floor, we have to go all the way down to get our food.. so it kind off sucks.

Must visit in Bandra

I think nobody in Bombay has till now not hung out/ heard of Candies.. its become a synonym to hanging out in Bandra when you have hours to spend and are on a budget.. The spacious and fun looking venue has several collegians frequenting.. The service in the initial years was slow and bad, as the servers took eons to take orders and then cash your bill and then finally give you your order.. I feel its slightly better now.. Also, a lot of pup up stalls are held here over weekdays and weekends which makes the whole experience fun.

Great ambience, good food

Candies is almost always value-for-money. This particular one is built beautifully and feels positively magical in the evenings. The food is generally good, with the occasional overdose of oil. The salad bar is the best choice as their salads are always fresh. And their dessert selection is amazing- everything your taste buds can imagine. And it all comes in bite-sized portions, for the diet-conscious! You usually get a couple of these mini-desserts with the coffee, just like you get garlic bread and salad with the mini-meals. Such attention to detail has to be lauded.

candy shop

When you enter Candies you feel like a little child entering a candy store. Ironical, I know. saying that this place is huge would be an understatement. It's just never-ending with one seating area after another. The ambiance is so completely random with different styles used for tables and chairs right next to each other. There's also something called the Lamp Room. You've got to see it to understand.

As for the food Candies doors not disappoint. It's fresh, tasty and super within the budget.

Great place for a lazy sunday

One of the best places to be if you've had a busy night and want to spend the next morning sipping coffee and eat some good food while listening to music or just hanging out with your friends.

Try the American club sandwich it tastes the best in the morning when they are freshly made along with some wild berry iced tea.

Don't forget to try the dragon chicken and Chicken Macroni salad if your drop there for lunch.

And they usually have 50 % off after 8pm so if you're lucky you might get everything for half the rate.

The best part is you can sit there for hours without anyone bothering you.

Good Loacation & charming ambience

Thats it!!! Good Location & charming ambience is where my review begins & ends.
Candies is famous for its ambience and location. It is swarming with college kids & teenagers all day and it never has any food left towards ate evenings.
One of the biggest complaints I have is the fact that it does not cater to vegetarians. They have negligible veg options (Maybe 1 or 2 which are usually over by 5 p.m.) and absolutely no eggless desserts.
This place is an absolute NO for vegetarians.
I myself have decided to boycott CANDIES.

Lost its Charm!

Candies used to be one of my favorite places to go to not only because of the amazing food and mouth watering desserts but because of the ambiance and that it was started with the intent of giving people a place to sit for hours undisturbed.
However over the past few years as it has become more popular it seems to have lost some of its charm.
The food is still good but the portions seem to have gotten smaller and the prices much much higher.
The service is HORRIBLE with the servers behind the counter acting like they're doing you a favor by taking your order. Sometimes they deliberately don't even look in your direction despite numerous calls.
Sometimes I wonder if the Pali Hill Candies has gotten too big for them to maintain as quite often there are tables which stay uncleaned for hours, and more often than not they are out of the items you want to order.

Very lively place in one of the Mumbai's upmarket location Bandra, Pali Hill. Frequented my mostly college students but now has become a place to have fun no matter what your age. Discounts on food after 8pm. Got various levels of sitting. So if your young and in Mumbai and not checked out Candies then you have missed something in life. Also a nice place for bird watching. Some of the best chicks in and around Bandra come here. Also is lucky you'll spot some celeb here. Also weekends usually its packed from morning to night.............................

Beautiful decor. It is an eclectic mix - each corner with a personality. The food is delicious. Chinese is nice, bakery rolls yumm, salads are fresh, meals are delightful. Must try- chicken steak in mushroom sauce. Beverages are tasty- try the pink lemonade. The service however is pathetic. It is a self-service place, but almost makes you desperate to get in the kitchen and heat the food yourself.

But I am a sucker for their food and ambiance, so I keep visiting again!

Huge Space for Hangouts

When you enter this place you feel like you have come to a different world. The place is very big and divided into different sections and different decor everywhere and feels like you are into a 4-5 storey building. If you are a college going student, this is the best place to hangout with your friends. Being a Vegetarian I found Desserts more preferable than food as they have very limited food options. But again the openess of the place makes up for everything.

Worth the Hype

The top floor of Candies probably gives you one of the best ambiance in Bombay. Its a lively place and is extremely crowded on weekends. Self Service - which is not usually an issue might get a little annoying on weekends.

The salad's are awesome. Probably makes it one of the best breakfasts in the city. The Chicken Sandwich is very good . Mutton chops, Lemon Tea Cake are worth a try.

This place also has a very good Cold Coffee - something that is extremely difficult to get in Mumbai - compared to Cold Coffees that you get in Pune and Ahmedabad.

In a few years, this place will become one of the institutions on Bandra Food Circuit :)

Candies is the one of the best hangout places in Bandra. Full of hep college and high class crowd available. It’s a massive place, with 3-4 floors occupied by people. The food is simply amazing. You will find college students studying in d same place, with all d gossip around. It has a very warm ambiance, and is very welcoming.
Recommendations: From the small mutton cutlets to the bigger plates of noodles and rice, everything is recommended. The salad counter is a must try, candies has a wide spread of a variety of salads.

What were we thinking?!

Tired from a 10-hour drama rehearsal, some 15 of us decided to go to Candies and twas one of the most horrible choices of our lives. Firstly, it's a bloody maze. Too many areas to sit and eat. No waiter system. We had to fetch for the tables all by ourselves. Finally we managed to get tables on the rooftop.
Secondly, to go all the way down the stairs and get the food upstairs was a task. Thankfully, we were able to find *some* food. We ordered for Fresh Lime Soda SWEET and were given plain Lemon Juice with Soda. Smoothies were nothing but colored water with tons of Lime juice in that too. Witnessed a lot of 'making out' in some of the dining areas.
They may might as well shut most of the dining areas as they're not really well-maintained or just shut the entire Pali branch. I find the Reclamation one more sorted.

As the title suggests come here for these 3 things you shall have a good time, the food is a little bit of a hit or miss depends on what you ordering i would suggest avoid.

Candies!

Candies !
Even if I don't really live in this city, but still if there is any place that has impressed me and welcomed me more than Delhi , it is definitely Mumbai ! The main reason why Candies holds a special place in my heart is because this is the place I used to always hung out with my college buddies. However, to sound less biased about this , the Red velvet cupcakes are a must !

More than the food, what strikes me the most is the beauty of the place. The attitude out there is just amazing to chill out with your best buddies or your special person ! you can't help but fall in love with Candies ! Perhaps that is what stirred me up ? lol .

Apart from the Red velvet cupcake, the Carrot cake and Sticky Chocolate cake must also be tried for your sweet tooth ! However, my favorite dishes on the menu are the small mini cupcakes and eclairs that are sometimes given to customers for free ! so you can check your luck !!
If you wish to eat something heavy for dinner or lunch, then try their dragon chicken and any of their pasta dishes. If you're a health freak then your paradise is their salad counter, it actually tastes good you know ! Even for people who don't like eating healthy !
Their coolers are the perfect mantra to beat the heat of the fast moving city !

Ambience+Food=Great Times!!

This particular Candies joint is very spacious as it spans across various levels...its a great place to catch up with friends over a coffee and small bites. Their all-time classic chicken sandwich is a must try. Also, don't forget to get your hands on the mini mutton samosa and the quiches (both veg and non-veg are fab!!). The staff is always busy fulfilling orders so one can become a lil impatient while trying to get across them to place an order. Also, in case you reach around 7 pm..chances are you might not get much to choose from as it would all be sold out. I wish they consider re-filling the stocks more frequently than they currently do so that no one goes away disappointed.

A Very Unique & Serene place to spend time!!!

I had always heard about Candies and did not visit it until one of my friends who knows the owner's daughter recommended that we have a very early breakfast post our early morning jog at bandstand..and am glad I went there!! :-)...this was obviously about 3-4 years back!!

Very good food...very nutritious & healthy... and wide range of variety...This place is a always crowded and is a heaven for teenagers and young crowd... This is one of favorite alternative joints cause I don't prefer to eat Indian food three times a day.. Pricing is reasonable and the concept of waving levels with a table at every level is a unique one - though during summers it gets very hot and you would prefer to have more cooler cover then!!! Anyways, staff is friendly and I would definitely recommend you to go and taste the good food and laze around spending as much time you want to!!! :-)

Great Place! Happening Crowd!

Very lively place in one of the Mumbai's upmarket location Bandra, Pali Hill. Frequented my mostly college students but now has become a place to have fun no matter what your age. Discounts on food after 8pm. Got various levels of sitting. So if your young and in Mumbai and not checked out Candies then you have missed something in life. Also a nice place for bird watching. Some of the best chicks in and around Bandra come here. Also is lucky you'll spot some celeb here. Also weekends usually its packed from morning to night.............................

A Cheap User Friendly Place to Visit.

I Usually look for a place to hang out after my College hours with my Girlfriend. And this is one of the decent places where you can come to after College or go on a date with a Girl. The Ambiance is Dark so people liking Bright things can sit outside. It is a Huge Place. I wasn't impressed with the food but if you're looking for a Cheap Place to hangout at for hours with good crowd around. Go for it.

Nice Terrace top Place to catch up with friends!!

With a wide variety of food and desserts to choose from this place surely has something to suit everyones taste...

My personal favorites are the chocolate lava dessert.. the chicken sandwich with shezwan sauce.. the kathi roll.. and the dragon chicken roll... you could also try the butter chicken.. biryani and thai curry.. they also have an excellent salad bar where in you could as many salads as you like for a fixed price..

This place is a well lit terrace top garden.. where you can chill with friends or family for as long as u like in a serene environment without any interference or disturbance of any sort.. or you could grab a take away... or even hv a quick bite.. it is self service though!

What a place !

Hi Guys,

This place is like a never ending hunt for food and a cool place or a table to hang out. Be it, open air or inside, its just too good. You gotta be there to experience the magnificence and coolness that place has. Candies food has always been vowed by people who are regular out there. But this time, its more about the venue than the food. The place is so huge and so cool it can cater to college going, office returning, young-old and everyone who wants to sit n chat with friends or read in a quiet place or just have coffee or is hungry after work. So hit this place and check it out.

Candies

Having born & spent my life in Mumbai (Andheri), I was surprised that I only became aware of this place at 36yrs of age. I wish I knew of this in college (hell !, I dont even know if they did exist 15 - 20 years ago).
First visit on a weekend through a friend who knows I am a foodie.
Awful Experience of waiting at least 30 minutes to get anything put me off. The thought of having to stand in line for another 30 minutes curtailed my enthusiasm to try any other items in their menu, in round 2. This is not what you would call fast-food :)
Being a vegetarian, I had few options (approx. 20% of menu); however I tried out the corn & mushroom quiche, lasagna, veg. curried roll. These were heated in a microwave & tasted pathetic by the time I found a place to sit & eat.
The ambience is unique & I love the way that seats are placed around the central stairs with few rooms having large screen projectors & also open air options. Very interesting, casual layout & possibly the only thing that I liked.
Interesting dessert with cheesecake, angry birds etc. - loved this part.
If you are a teenager or wish to be amongst such a crowd, go ahead! However; if you want to have quality food with family or a quick bit (especially for vegetarians) - avoid this place as there are other good options.

Great meals and wonderful location

Candies to me means fresh sandwiches, cold coffee, various pan and bread rolls, burgers and mini meals - Not to forget the wonderful Angry Birds and other cupcakes. The fare is eclectic and there's something for everybody. The Pali Naka one is usually crowded and it's better to head to the 2nd floor as there's comparatively lesser rush there. Their new outlet at Reclamation is very cool too.

Tip: Go after 8.30 PM to get a 15-25% discount on F&B. They like to keep their stuff fresh
Caveat: I always end up overeating at candies :)

My favourite Cafe

I would call the place a cafe because of their amazing beverage and confectionery menu. The carrot cupcake and pink lemonade ice team, top the favorite list. Also the serene yet bright ambiance adds on to why one should be here, the place tends to take you away from everyday's hustle bustle. The other thing I like about Candies is the unlimited salad section, one just cannot go away without overloading their plate! Candies is the place to be once a 'week' simply to relax, whether you plan to go alone or with your pals.

'Fun'tastic place

No dearth of reviews for this place. Quite expected...it is a fun place to hang out with friends. The food is good with little disappointments both in the veg and non-veg department.

The ice tea and milk shakes are very refreshing. Sandwiches, rolls, lasagne are the safest bets in terms of availability as well as quality.

Need to try the desserts here...specially the cheese cakes and the mousse.

You really need good patience to enjoy at this place. The counter is always swarmed with people wanting to order. Waited for a good 20 min (on a busy sunday afternoon) even before someone took my order. Once i had my food, the fun quotient only improved with time.

Try and avoid the busy hours....you won't be disappointed.

Space Time Food

pick your spot in this multifloor mansion based on when u plan to leave , who you are with and whether u prefer smokers around or not. Once thats done choose from their huge variety ranging from rolls and salads to rice to cheesecakes everything a person of any age group would eat. The one thing that you shouldn't miss out on is the cheesy macaroni salad . If you're light in your pocket go for the club sandwich which is cheap and filling and you get wafer sides :D

Candy's perhaps the cutest and homely looking restaurant i've been two. Headed to this place to grab a few pattices and sandwiches to fill my hunger.

It had a very diner feel and the staff was very organised. The damages ended to approximately 200 Rs for two and was worthwhile. Please head to this place to hang out with your friends. Be forewarned this place is crowded over the weekends.

Cheesecake

One of my favorite hangout places. Love the snacks here. Spring roll with chips is my favortie. Tried the cheesecake here for the first time yesterday. The passion fruit cheesecake is to die for. I love kiwi, and it had pieces of kiwi in it. So delicious!

Also tried the marble chocolate cheesecake, didn't really like it. Tasted more like caramel custard and too sweet. Will definitely go back for passion fruit. Love the chocolate tart and small garlic breads. Chicken tandoori is really good too.

Service was quick for a change. The place was crowded as usual but they have enough place for all.

Ambience was so beautiful.

Love candies :D

One of the Best Hangout Places in Mumbai

Hanging around at Candies is my favorite activity almost since 7years. Its an amazing Bunglow setting converted into tons of space with unique artwork all around! The terrace area is one of the best place to chill out with your buddies with my fav Salad plate and Blue cooler! Can spend hours here with all the peace!

The must try from Candies is the range of Desserts that they have each day. Choc Cheese cake is a Superb idea!!! Definite visit atleast twice a month to rejuvenate urself!

It's a nice place with open air seating and the place is awesome in to chill out.
The food is ok not that worth.
If u wanna try this place better go early around 7 as the best of candies and most of stuff start getting over by 8
And around 9 u would be offered only 2-3 dishes which are not worth even trying.
My experience was very bad
As we did not have much choices

Amazing place

I was told a lot about this place by my colleagues, so one day decided to come here. Reached here at 8, but there was no point seeing the menu and ordering from there, as only limited (hardly 5-6) items were available. So ended up leaving without eating. But determined to eat here .. came here after a couple of days.. and I got lucky with Spaghetti in white sauce and paneer tikka roll. Spaghetti was amazing, with good quantity. In all a good experience.

make sure you reach here in the evenings to have food... little late.. and you be left to eat somewhere else.

Good food, pathetic service

Candies has been loved by all in its own way. The place serves delicious food but is abysmally low in terms of service. Still, it has very vibrant feel to it.

As far as the food goes, their cakes are superb. A personal favourite has been their chocolate lava - the molten chocolate is good enough to lift your mood.

Their salads are good, though not exactly for the health conscious (due to lot of dressing). I suggest going for the salad bar to try out the various salads.

The wraps are also good here. Frankly, whatever I have tried from the vast menu has been good.

A totally recommended place for great food if you can ignore the pathetic service.

Heaven for non veg lovers

I being a vegetarian don't really enjoy going to candies. But it's a great place for non veg lovers. The main branch in Bandra ( Near AVM school )has much more variety compared to the one near Petit school. I like their veg puff, pastries, salted butter wafers, veg roll. But I find it all too oily. Wish they take care of this. I'm not a candies fan but d school n college kids def love candies. They have some discount after 8 pm. But by that time hardly any stuff is left on d rack. Their breads are nice n fresh .

Candy no more...

My best friend from college and I would like to think we discovered Candies for the whole world. The bridge to the terrace level to this place was literally built in front of our eyes. Yes, we were in love with the Dragon Chicken. But somewhere in between 2006 and 2013, when I visited about a month or so ago, things changed. A lot. Wouldn’t recommend this place for food anymore, except for that classic Candies ambience.

it's just impossible for any collegian to not spend a little part of his life at Candies! I love Candies for a lot of reasons, the fresh drinks, the pastas, the salad counter, the cupcakes, but most of all, what drives me to this place is the ambiance. The place is huge and you'd be amazed at how huge! A terrace, almost 3 floors occupied with tables, the place has a lot of cozy corners to offer to couples or an open terrace if you're with your gang of friends. No wonder, the place is always packed!

Love Hate relationship

I literally love and hate this place. The food makes my mouth water, but no matter how little of it I eat, I end up feeling far too full. I suspect they put some kind of soda in there. Great variety though. And a lovely fun ambience. Which is probably why it's always full of college kids. There's always an endlessly long line for the counter, which is manned by morons. Those people just never seem to understand what your order is. Regardless, we keep going back there.

A must visit place on everyone's list!

I've been there many times. It's easy locate as most rickshaw and taxi drivers know it. It's situated on pali hill.
It's a beautiful place divided into three sections. It's huge and sprawling.
The menu is well laid out and service , minimal but okay.

The items I would recommend in the menu are - The salads and the sandwiches.

I LOVE THEIR DESERT COUNTER! I always end up spending too much money there.
The deserts specially the petit four are extremely nice. I hate the angry birds cakes though.They are dry and bad. Lava cake and all are good too.

Candies is good on your pocket and your palette. A must visit in bandra. If your relative/friend is in town and you don't know where to take them, then take them to candies! Everyone loves candies!

Never Get Bored

Candies has been a staple for me for the past 2 years. With the large variety of items served, one can never get bored.
The only downside to candies is that it is Huge!
Climbing about a 100 stairs, to get a place to sit only makes you Hungrier. Probably that's their strategy?

Overall its an Amazing Hangout with pretty good food.

Pocket Friendly Place

This is My usual spot to hang out whenever i'm in this side of Bombay. When i first came here, i was blown away by the sheer size of the place. The place is so huge that makes me confused sometimes where to sit and chill out. The aura in this place is splendid to say the least. The food is of good quality however the service sometimes is slow as the place gets a tad too crowded and the personnel only attend to one customer at a time. The price is decent here. The chicken sandwich should be tried out along with different varieties of desserts on display.
All in all, a good place to hangout and a pocket friendly place.

My colleague picked a parcel from here this morning and a big smile spread across our faces when we saw her walking in the office with Candies bags. We had kheema puffs, sausage puffs, potato salad, potato chops, malai chicken roll, chicken tikka roll, spaghetti bolognese and everything was great. A little oily though but tasty nonetheless.

Awesome place

Awesome Awesome place..and you must visit that at least once. Very popular among the college crowd and those who have been visiting it since their college days. The best thing about the place is the unique setting of one terrace leading to another with plants and shades. Bright colourful walls with mosaic tiles art work adds to the beautiful ambience. You won't feel you are in the middle of Mumbai once you are in here. Best place to hangout with friends for hours. They also have some AC zones. But most parts are open to sky with Umbrellas or shades.

As for the food, some of it is nice, and some just average. I prefer their non-veg over the veg and simply love the desserts. Chocolate lava is an all time favourite. But don't go there expecting great food, though some of it is really nice too. As for service, it is basic self-service and sometimes you may have to wait for a while depending on the crowd. And if you happen to go post 8:00pm you get great discounts and sometimes some complimentary stuff too. But even without the discount it is quite reasonable priced. So don't specially go there post 8:00 coz most of the stuff is over by then and you will have very limited options to choose from.

Overall it is a nice place to relax and chill with friends and you can spend hours there without anyone bothering you. And the rating of 4 is not so much for the food or the service but the experience.

Must Visit :)

Inspite of studying in Bandra never got a chance to visit Candies....finally got a chance to go...the place is very good.

Ambience- Huge space...3 floors...indoor and outdoor seating....the place has a nice vibe....seating is comfortable....

Food- We tried the american club s/w and the chinese combo....both were well prepared...the iced tea was good....give the bombay blue slush a miss...its very hygieinc..

Service- Self-service...But that's not a problem..

Prices- Tad higher for college students...but that's not a big issue

Verdict- You have to visit this place.. Recommended!

Although I'v been here a couple of times before, I'v never had to place an order. Yesterday, I went through that ordeal. Waited at the counter for 20 minutes only to be ignored by the staff. No one was willing to take the order. It was just so weird. Customers were yelling out "excuse me" from over the counter, but the staff was blissfully ignoring everyone. My heart went out to a guy who was standing in front of me in the queue. He had already received his order like 20 minutes ago. All he needed was a spoon!!!

Great place, ave food, poor service

Place: It's a great concept and out-of-the-ordinary structure. Certainly hits the novelty factor. A really nice hangout place for couples as well as groups.
Food: It's just average. Though, cheap rates make up a little for that. The variety dwindles very soon and most of the dishes are unavailable most of the time.
Service: Perhaps the most disappointing factor.

Absolutely despicable service!!!

I have just returned from the Bandra West branch of Candies and I am outraged at how unprofessional this place was. The staff is full of rude and unaccomodating people. I was visiting the cafe for the first time and the interior was absolutely chaotic, mismanaged
, and just pathetic. I didn't waste my money. I'd rather not try the food than give my business to such an impolite staff. On top of everything there was no manager on the premis to overlook the business. It makes me laugh to think that such a place could receive such praise. Go only if you like to be insulted! 0 stars!

A little improvement

Hey guys,

I have been to Candies a few times wid my friends and this time I had gone there wid my Bf.
I was even more amazed wid the calm and peace this place characterizes even with so much crowd. I feel this is so due to the ample space and some great interiors it boasts of.
They have also maintained it quite well.

The food- without a doubt deserves appreciation as the pricing is also moderate, keeping in mind the 80% of student crowd it gets.

So they have got everything, the self service and all however, their high-headed staff must be tamed to give some better customer service as you have to explain your order many times and after that you have to check your bill twice ( as I have been charged double on several occasions and had to sort things out).
Phew!!.
All in all a good hangout if you want to kill smtime...

one of my favourites

Now i've never been to the other two candies , but i just love this one ! The ambience is just so different , you can sit in a quiet corner or downstairs in the ac or in one of the upper shady terraces whatever your mood...the ambience and food definitely makes up for the slightly slow service ...i love the roast chicken , which i have to have every time i visit ...the mutton samosas, mince meat roll and chocolate tarts are also on top of my list ! the best time to go is preferebly a weekday , because by the end of the day everything gets sold out and you might not get that dish u favour ! average meal for 2 = 400

Home Sweet Home

I have often wanted to encroach on some little corner in the upstairs terraces & make a tiny slum & live in it. Going there is like being in the home you want your home to be. The space itself (the non a/c) upper terraces are something that don't belong in Mumbai & seem to have been transported from some other country.
And the food is nearly as good as the ambiance. The continental food (mutton rolls, chicken tikka rolls, lasagne), the chinese food, the snacks, of special mention the chicken salad sandwiches which are kept ON the counter, not in it, and the tiny mutton samosas.
And of very special mention- I have eaten cheesecakes all over the world, but the baked lemon cheesecake..woww....I think I may be going now for a little drive.

Am a regular candies fan...i love their food , ambience everything...when i heard their reclamation outlet was re opened after renovations i made it a point to visit the outlet today.....firstly the lady at the counter was not least interested...a few of the dishes were un marked so i asked her what they were..she says they r all chicken so choose any thing...after which when she serves me my minced chicken roll...there is no wafers on da side like always so i asked why...a boy at the counter said i don't know...no wafers today i guess....then i order a cup of coffee..its normally served with candies...which were not present..when i ask for it..i get a dirty look n i get the candies as if am asking for too much...all in all the vibe was bad..am so used to the polite smiles n lovely service that accompanies the food in the pali outlet...unfortunately that was missing today

Perfect Hangout place

Candies is one place which will never disappoint any food lover , except when they run out of food which happens often. so you must make sure you don't go there later in the day. they have a lot of options to choose from right from the salad bar, to the vegetarian and non-vegetarian food items. the desserts section is totally scrumptious with sweet treats ranging from petit fours to humongous cheesecakes. try the wild cherry cheesecake and the cupcakes with cute fondant decorations. the jelly slices are too cute to be eaten. the spaghetti bolognese is a must try. the mac n cheese is again the most cheesiest comfort food ever. give this place a try. you will love it.

Worth the trouble? Maybe not.

I've been here a couple of times and as with most people, have my own little list of favourite things to eat here. This is def not somewhere you come to, if your ravenous. The lines to the food counter are long, the staff is over worked and strained. This usually results in some very curt answers and not very prompt service.

If you find yourself walkingup to the pretty mosaic decorated open seating areas, don't be surprised if youcan't find a clean table or a fan that points your way. What is a good idea is the food counter on top. Sadly the stock of food here is 1/4 of the usual menu and anything that isnt on the menu usually takes years to get to you.

This place is good if you have a few hours to kill and have some patience, otherwise I highly reccommend you try the candies at reclamation instead.

Sugar, Candy and Spice!

Candies has been like a third home to me and my friends, since we were in a college in Bandra. The ambience, food and desserts are really nice. Our favoutire being the cold coffee, cup cakes and dragon paneer chilly and their sandwiches.
But they are overpriced. And they have increased the prices ridiculously in the last two years. It's a huge pinch when one is surviving on pocket money and have humongous amount of projects to spend money on.
The 10 mile waiting line is a huge pain too. Though we figured we'd just have to deal with it, if we chose to go there.
The recent changes that they've made in the security rules is really sad. They don't let people sit and work on projects there. It's a strict eat and go. At least that has been our experience.
It's a bitter-sweet situation. We love the place, despite it being a pain.
Nothing has replaced Candies yet for us...

Love it or Hate it, cannot ignore it

Candies is one of those love it or hate it but can't ignore it type of place. However for me its an 'I don't care about it much' kind of place. And here's why - the food is very very average. The much hyped about dragon chicken is okay! Slightly sweet and I could not have the entire thing. The caramel custard besides being grainy has a coffee flavour. Umm that in my books is not caramel custard. The mini tarts are pretty good and so are the cupcakes, so is the salad bar.
whoever said this place is perfect for a 'quick bite' must not have considered the standing in the line part of their visit. The standing in the line part only will consume a large part of your visit which pretty much sucks.
Would I revisit the place? Yes, and the only reason is the ambiance, its perfect for coming with groups or going on a date. The open air part is my favorite. Also you can sit there for hours without having waiters hovering around.

Huge and comfy!

Had been to Candies this weekend with friends. This is was my first time here and 2 of my friends were already seated before some of us arrived. This place is so huge, we got lost several times and happened to check out every level here before we could actually find our friends.

Love the laid back feeling that you get over here. You have both the closed a/c sections with good music as well as open air places with assorted furniture. I found both the places very relaxing and comfortable. You can spend an entire day here and still not get bored.

The food is very good and the quantities are huge too. We tried the veg roll, spanish roll which is served with chips, veg pie, hakka noodles, fried rice and last but not the least chocolate shakes which were divine!

This is a self service place so it kind of sucks to wait in the line for such a long time since its always crowded. There is a great salad bar as well as separate dessert counter as well.

People just pour in anytime and anyhow and still manage to fit in. This is surely a place I would recommend if you want to enjoy good food with a relaxed time spent with friends or family.

Food:- 4/5
Ambiance:- 5/5
Pricing:- 4/5

Best ever!

This place, I love! What makes it so special? Let me tell you!

Food- Candies has everything snacky and more. Rolls, sandwiches, starters, salads, rice, mini meals, breakfast, desserts, shakes, juices and what not! It’s one of those café’s where you can try something new every time you go there.

Taste-wise everything is ok. The salads and shakes are great though! Also, I love the Veg Quiche and the Chutney sandwiches. Oh and the Chocolate Lava is to die for! That’s something you just must have! Also, the cupcakes are the best I’ve had so far!

Ambience- It’s my favourite café! I wish they made something like this in town! Candies at Pali Hill is so beautiful and well made that you’ll fall in love with the place instantly! There’s this instant connection that comes. Simple, sweet and lovely and of course, with its many levels, it’s huge! It’s ideal for a couple on a romantic date or a group of friends to just hang out. Oh and maybe once in a while you’ll also spot a celebrity.

Service- It’s a self service place and let me be honest, it’s a pain to get someone to respond to you ‘cause there’s too little staff for the amount of people that come here. So I really wish that’d improve.

Prices- The prices are just perfect. Everything is reasonable and easy on the pocket. The sandwiches and rolls are priced at Rs. 50 approx, the salad buffet is 80 bucks and you can stuff your plate all you want at one go, the shakes and drinks are about 50 bucks each, desserts start at Rs.6! If you go there after 8 pm, you get 25% off on anything! Now isn’t that an awesome deal?!

Verdict- Candies is definitely one of the most awesome places to hang out at in Mumbai. It’s sweet and lovely and totally affordable! If you haven’t been to Candies yet, you have no idea what you’re missing! It’s hard not to fall in love with this place! Highly recommended!

Candies...a wonderland!

Candies has been the first option whenever I've had to meet up with anyone in Bandra. Trust me you can never go wrong with this place. No particular age-group frequented, you'll find just everyone here, from youngsters to cute old couples.

Ambiance-wise (9/10), this cafe is one of the coziest I've been to. Housed in one of the bungalows in a by-lane of Pali Hill, its exactly where you least expect it to be. Lush green plants welcome you into the cafe. And once you are inside, nothing can take your eyes off the display counter.

However the minute you decide on your order, be forewarned of the mess your are jumping into. Great that they follow self-service, but had the service been good there wouldn't have been the mad rush on the other side of the counter. People try to squeeze in from all sides and scream out orders. If you think being mannered and politely ordering is a good deal, I'm sorry you are going to return hungry.

Service (3/10) is not the best you'll find. Arrogant is how I'd describe the servers. They take eons to take your order and hand you back your change as if its their tip that they are returning.

Coming to food (9/10), salads are the best bet. That's what I always order. They are just too awesome! Other than that give Chicken Lasagne, Spinach and Mushroom Cannelloni and Chicken Stroganoff a try. If you have a sweet tooth must haves are New York & Blueberry Cheesecakes, Red Velvet Cupcake, Chocolate Biscuit and Chocolate Lava. Heaven!

I'd say its a decent place in terms of VFM (8/10). You get good food and a good ambiance at a good price!

Was left helpless & was forced to take cops help

Mumbai Police Rocks! Candies Restaurant Sucks!

18th August, 8.40 pm: 15 mins after i left Candies a restaurant joint in bandra i realized that i had forgotten my phone there on the table, i ran back to check and it was gone. Three girls who were seated at the table closer to them told me that they saw a phone lying on the table and mean while two guys and a girl came and occupied the table there and that they were trying to unlock my phone (i had a lock), remove battery and sim card of the phone which they found suspicious and they informed the waiter of this. But the waiter seemed to have other priorities and did not care to even inform any one in a higher position of this LIVE theft happening there. I spoke to Allan the owner of candies and he made me read a sign "we are not responsible for any theft" - I acknowledged that it was my mistake that i left the phone but now what? Whats all the CCTV for? couldn't he help me? So basically they are they responsible for encouraging theft and paying a blind eye if someone is stealing stuff right below their nose? I believe they must put up a sign "We encourage Thefts!" , in the mean time the three girls informed me that those guys who stole my phone had just left and i ran out with the three girls to see if they were still around unfortunately they all left! - I ran back with them to the owner only to find that he had left for dinner! And when i asked one of his collegues to help us track the guys with the help of cctv he said he cant do much coz only Allan knows how to operate it! LMAO really i was like these guys need some HELP! And rudely asked us to wait for half hour until he comes and started whining conveniently about the fact that because of me Allan - the owner of @candies got late for dinner? Dude seriously 5 mins of helping your customer who is trouble can make such a big difference to his dinner and his calorie intake that he could have fainted or may be suffered from malnutrition! Anyways point to be noted id that Allan stays around 10 mins from Candies and i asked if they could just call him so that the three girls could only locate the guys on CCTV which could help the police to take note of them, But Again all my requests went on deff ears and dumb mind! The three girls had to leave since they stayed far and i couldn't ask for more they had already helped me much! Anyways i chose not to stay for half hour since i felt i could do much better after being neglected so badly! I went off to the Bandra police station and lodged a complaint for theft of my phone and told them the entire scene at candies and the snobbish and loser attitude of the owner! The cops were prompt in filing a complaint and sent two lady officers with me to candies to take a better judgment of the incident!
As we went in the CCTV room we found Allan the owner and all the other relevant people there. The lady cops asked them to play the CCTV according to them. In the mean time Allan did not hesitate to show off how many wallets and gold and other expensive stuff people leave here and they dont touch it.
DUDE if they leave wallets cant you just get an id from their wallet call them and hand it over to them? What is it you wish to have a museum set up for yourself?
Anyways we located the guys on the screen and at the same time the Allan gets a call saying why are the police here? Allan responds someone has lost their phone and thats what and then to my surprise Allan asks the person on the phone to come up! He comes up with a note written "Please contact us we have your phone and their numbers, apparently my sim got stuck in his phone and he is taking it for repairs"
The cops asked the manager of candies to come to the police station! It was 11.15 pm now
The main Inspector that "what we're doing with the note for two hours?" Why were they not prompt in taking me seriously and handing the note to me? Had they taken action responsibly before i would not have to go to the police! And Also noted that had the cops not come with me to candies i would never get that note and never know what's happening with my phone!
The manager accepted his mistake! But still did not shy away from saying we are not responsible! The Cop was quick and said now you are since you haven't handed the note to the girl you are!
He kept shut!
We called the guy who took my phone and asked him to return! We are in touch with NINAD that's what the guys name is and asked to hand over my phone!
I thanked the lady cops for being kind and taking my case seriously!
The Cops are pursuing this case till the time NINAD does not visit the police and acknowledges the incident!
Candies please learn to show some empathy to your customers and not show them "we are not reponsible" signs!
The tea was good though!
Cheers

AWFUL SERVICE

I've had a horrible experience here.The service is simply awful.The section above has no que system at all. Hence it leads to utter chaos.I waited for 20 minutes for my order and a person who came in after me got his order before i did. This is when I lost my cool and waIked out .I suggest that they should be more organized and have a similar system like they have below.

Absolutely horrendous service and overpriced food.

You'd think they'd have realised by now just how slow their serving process is, with the person who takes your order having to go all around the kitchen to get - and sometimes prepare the food - which usually takes about 20 minutes. And then you realise they forgot half your food anyway. The ambience is great, but it is a hideous restaurant.

Bad Service but good range of salads.....

Guys do not go to this place empty stomach coz the food here tempts you and you can't do anything but wait......I went with my friends to this place. Literally I had wait for 40 mins before placing the food...the owners have to do something about this. The food is okay here but the real players are the salad which are placed on the buffet...the variety is awesome from mexican chicken salad to russian salad to green salad to tuna salad....its mouth watering and appetizing. I had ordered for a crisp chicken burger which was not good...the chicken patty was dry and the caramelised onion in the filling didnt go well also the burger bread was not that soft. The lemon grass cooler is a recommend if are a citric taste lover....it is very refreshing drink.... well I will visit this place again but only for the yummy salads..... :)

Great place with yummy snacks but lots of waiting

This outlet of candies is huge and amazing.I love the place ,the ambiance and the music .They got a lot of rasta music and even MJ.But this place can be frustrating as far as service goes.If crowded you are guaranteed atleast a 15 min wait to place your order sometimes.Then there's the question of whether what you ordered is available or not.Followed up by the wait to get your food.The food at Candies is pretty good.Some Items like the Keema Roll and the Chicken pattice are quite nice.
Some like the Chicken Burger not so good.Pricing is pretty low which is always good if you want a nice snack on a small budget.Love the drinks they have.Desserts are actually pretty awful.Had the pineapple pastry which is the worst i've had.This place is usually full and noisy as well.Like the food here but for all the waiting and noise i give it 3 stars

Ok Food, Very Slow/Bad Customer Service & Hygiene

Many members of the staff pick up desserts with their hands, no gloves! Bad hygiene.

Staff members are polite and friendly but the service is terrible.

Food is just OK- their savory (snacks) are way better than their sweets.

Yumm food...but surrounded by confusion !!!

Okay ..!! being from Navi Mumbai...I frequent this place only when I end up with my pals here...been thrice though :)
The food was better with each visit, though I missed gorging on my selected favourites :( as the dishes quickly vanished right in front of me and I was helpless. None the less, the Quiches are yummy, relished on Chicken Lasagne twice ...I loved it :), The drinks are good as well.
A kind request to the management : If they could triple up the dishes, guess they would attract in more crowds and the service was tad too slow as well :)

P.S : For girls : Been here on a Sunday, well there is a cute lil' stall where they sell all the cutest accessories, lil pricey..umm.!! but worth it...

Am..for sure gonna visit again to feast on the yummies ...:)

A Different World!!

Candies does not boast of Great facade..but once you enter it, you will realize that you are in a different world. It has a super cool ambiance and varying themes with the floors. So if you wanna sit in a warm cozy setting you go to the first level and if you are in a mood to enjoy the sun...you go the second level. The Menu is quite exhaustive and offers a wide range of options but as a regular visitor I would like to mention some of the items which are Candies Special and do not burn a hole in your pocket. American Club Sandwich,a complete breakfast. Lemon Sponge Cake, has refreshing and tangy taste, Chicken Puffs, one of the best puff you will ever have. The service is a little disappointing but considering the Food and the Ambiance one can just overlook it.

good food and siesta at affordable price

This place is not to be missed out if you are a regular visitor of Bandra. Candies serves best food and desserts. The ambiance is fantastic. There is a sky garden which gives a feel of being in Switzerland. There are other rooms perfectly decorated.. some with lamps, pictures, plants, etc. Try out the triple cheese cake and chocolate cheese cake. and all other desserts. The chicken and mutton mince roll is really great here. Actually, everything is great here, u jus go and pick what u like. its gonna turn out good.

Amazing ambiance, finest desserts

Candies, at Pali Hill, is one of those places, that will make you want to come there over and over again. Its an instant winner, when it comes to the ambiance and the Italian style setting. The best part of this place lies in the fact, that they have made use of every part of this place perfectly. Right from setting tables on the huge stairs, to the alleys, under the trees, surrounded by trees, on the roof and the list goes on. It makes you wonder, if you are really in the middle of Bandra or for that matter of fact, in Mumbai. You also have an air condition option, but when you get to enjoy under the natural breeze, who cares for artificial jargon.
Talking about food, Candies have an array of options. From fast foods all over the world to their Indian counter parts. But, what makes Candies truly a hit, is the completely separate desserts section. Its filled with options, which will keep you thinking, till you actually give in and end-up ordering most of the things. The Mushroom and Macroni bake is very "cheese"-y and the Paneer Tikka Masala is perfectly tandoored. We tried the Dark Cherry Cheesecake, which was too soft and yummy to be true. The Tiramisu was nice, but the coffee flavor was kind of missing, but the soft and light cream just made up for it.
Candies is a nice place or rather a great place, to hangout with your gang, complete assignments, enjoy the breeze with serenity, amidst the chaos outside in the city.

Candies Rocks!!

Now this is one seriously good place. At least if you wish to chill out with friends, with a coffee or pastries, in the open air, with a stunning ambience and an equally stunning crowd.

This place seems to go on for ever. It has levels, and levels, and levels. The AC section is a revered place in any Mumbai restaurant or pastry shop, but the AC sections here are the least revered. The non-AC, open air sections are the ones which leave you amazed.

This place is perfect for everyone - large groups, small groups, couples (they have a couples seating area too, pretty enclosed and all). There is a new, dark ambiance AC section where couples rule the roost.

There are designated smoking and non-smoking areas as well. The overall environment is so cool and laid back that you feel you could sit here for ever.

The only problem is the service (for which, Candies gets a 4 star instead of 5 star from me). You have to do self-service - this would be okay, if the waiters didn't take so long serving you even when you are standing in front of them. Another issue is that on the weekend, most items vanish by 6 pm - the place is so crowded and the demand so high.

Overall, a brilliant place (the best in Bombay) for a great evening with friends or your loved one. 4/5. :)

A Place to get lost..

yes i mean it.. once you are inside grab your food and take a good seat in the open terrace and u can get lost in your own world dreaming, or with your office works.. there is a silence area which is not so silent.. but still.. i had been there many times alone, with my gal and also wid ma frnds.. its a best place to be.. the only thing i dint like was the service delays by the staff.. and sometimes the music is annoying.. the open space is not covered well.. make sur ethat the crows on the trees does not bless you with their salads ;-) i wud suggest that it should be covered with some net or something like that.. Thursdays u get a flat off.. but betta do go that area on thursdays unless u really need that discount.. the place will be damn crowded.. Even on the weekdays its very hard to get a parking space.. and on thursdays u better take another route. the food is good, VFM, Tasty. They shud also be serving Colas or other branded drinks (dont they hav any confidence on their drinks??) They need to accept cards also..

VFM!!!

Having always loved the food at Candies, I decided to order food from here for my New Year's Eve bash. For a party of 30 people and an order of 5 items in large quantities (40 pieces of each), my bill was just Rs 3,240!!! All the food was swiped... an absolute hit especially the chutney sandwiches and the prawn potato chops. I also ordered mini mutton samosas, veg spring rolls and corn cheese balls.

Thank you Candies for a scrumptious entry into the New Year.

In love with the place

Absolutely astonishing to see such a huge open space in Mumbai with amazing seating arrangements. Candies is the place to be on a romantic date. Check out the open sky forest - there is actually a huge pepul tree growing out of no where on the 2nd level! Delicious desserts, not great food..but awesome place to hang around. Most importantly, its menu is tooo under priced when compared to the place! So a must must to visit place for all ages!

GOOD FOOD, BAD SERVICE and BAD LASAGNA!

I had a very good time, enjoyed the food and its not even quite expensive. It was a big surprise for me, when i saw such a huge place with so much sitting arrangement. I am in love with this place and the food also.
Service was pretty bad and chicken lasagna was pathetic whereas, chicken cheese lollipop was good. overall i liked it for spending some time.
The best thing is that you can sit for as long as you want!

Average to good.

Candies is a great place to hang out especially when you want to chill and laze around.
The food is okay and ambiance is good. the service might be lame and lousy, but i guess, over the years candies has changed from a "food place" to a "hangout" place.
Overall it is average but fun when you're with friends.

Crappy Place! didn't like

Did not like the place.... specially when you enter, everything is so crowded............... then another crappy thing is there is no table service, that's ok but they have no organization within it, when you're actually done with your ordering ........................the most faltu thing is that you have to search for a place to sit! They don't limit entries when sitting is full.

Be aware of one thing guys if you always carry plastic currency, it is not accepted here. You need to carry hard cash for the payments.

The food I can give 3.5 out of 5, but overall I will rate 1.5 out of 5

Sorry Candies, but I didn't like you
Its OK place for just time-pass or to hang out with your college friends. Not good when you want to take Girlfriend along with you

Get a bit organized

I've heard that the place is very chaotic in the morning but din't expect to find that chaos at 10 in the night. waiters were just not ready to listen to us although there were just a handful of people. After shuttling from one counter to another I finally ordered a mutton burger. This is one taste I would want to forget. The bread was hard and meat patty was uncooked. I don't know why they went over generous with the mayonnaise which made the burger taste even worse.

However, the place is nice to hang out with friends but stick to food that no one can go wrong with. Don't experiment.

BAD SERVICE!

I appreciate brands that keep up with their success and also provide the same service they used to in the past.I don't think Candies has kept its word.Candies has always been my favourite hang out place and the food has been amazing.Recently,i was extremely disappointed with the service there.The service in Candies is extremely slow and people have to stand in the que waiting for minutes/hours together just to get some food.The people working there barely listen to you,it's as if you need to beg them to get the food for you.Also,the people working there are quite disrespectful.I had repeat my order 3-4 times..many of the people standing in the que had to!and i also, had to wait for 45 + minutes which is ridiculous for a veg lasagne!i honestly think that Candies should start improving their service or it might just ruin their reputation and they might start losing their customers.This is a great place ,but i have stopped visiting it due to the POOR SERVICE!

Why?

I think Candies has a swollen head. It has been a popular joint since many years and still attracts customers due to its almost heritage site reputation. Every time I have gone to Candies it is because some friend of mine swears by some dish that is served at Candies. But I leave promising myself to never come back as the service has really gone to the dogs. I have never felt any amount of ease in ordering food. Recently, I had to stand at the counter and repeatedly request the people behind it to take my order. This was even though I was the only person there. The cashier made things worse by arguing with me. There were a few salespersons hanging around yet not ready to take the order. Why is Candies paying so many people when the work is being done by only a few? I hope they do something as I can assure you that they are fast loosing customers.

Horrid Food!

I went to Candies since it was recommended by atleast 3 of my friends for its food and desserts.
So I went there for lunch and the food was just flying off the shelves. So I had to settle for whatever was available. I ordered a veg chopsuey and a chicken roll. The food tasted like cardboard. The desserts were also nothing to write home about. I'd go with Theobroma or Moshe's anyday. Overall bad experience, would definitely avoid going to this place again.

Terrible Service, Decent Ambience

Go there only if you have a lot of time on your hands. Service is bad (inspite of being self-service). We waited about 30 minutes for someone to just take our order of "two cold coffees" and then another while to get the order... most irritating part was when I saw the server with my order finally in his hand, chatting and cracking jokes with his co-worker! After waiting for so long, the least i could expect you to do is rush to hand me my order!
Lots of teenyboppers, random music... it's exhausting rather than relaxing. would go there for the space and un-clustered open air seating.

Staff is not really impressive maybe due to highly Nashila smoke that the youngsters blow if you get what i mean.

Candies at Pali Hill is an epitome of bad service and extremely hopeless staff to the extent that one guy swore at me because I was standing at the Veg counter (i wanted to order veg) and their veg display section was actually under the non-veg ordering counter... I simply left the place and there is no way i can go to this place again...

Indian french cafe

I Actually enjoy the reclamation location the most.
Okay we don't sit idle n sip coffees by the roadside in mumbai as we would all be covered with soot n muck if ever tried.
But this is the next best experience of semi open cafe with lot of delicious munchies and decent coffee.The ambiance is fresh with good music.
Now the food
Chicken Biryani (Not the tikka biryani) Mind-blowing
Dragon Chicken Great (But lot of food color)
Chicken Mayo Sandwich yummy but small quantities
Chicken barbecue roll cant stop at one
Wild-berry ice tea.(Heart attack but Slurpee )
A huge dessert spread with many surprises.

Yes their service is of a era where you are expected to shout for your order and hope the food does not run out.

The good food(Biryani --My Precioussssss.....) will always run out by 1:30PM and 8PM so be early and try ur luck.

This place makes my mouth water every time I think about it. Have been there twice, and plan to make that number increase. The food is great, quantity and quality wise. Respect for money. What more could you want? Just one thing - there are just two sections with air conditioning. It's difficult to adjust in the other sections, but the fans make it okay.

Good Food Bad Service

Have visited this place many a time and had always problem with the service.This time place was too much crowded and just to place the order it took a lot of time which was really annoying.
it was around 8 so they offered us 20% discount but the food we want was already finished.We have to order for what was left over and that too was in very less quantity.
The new prices of food were too high and the place is not value for money.
The only good thing about this place is sitting arrangement.You can sit here with your friends for hours as no one is there to disturb you.
The service needs to be improved as it takes so much time just to place the order and have food....

The single most annoying place in India

The food: Not good. Everything pretty much tastes the same and is coated in the same type of grease/film. I always feel sick after eating there. Will give them the fact that the food LOOKS good when you're hungry.

The service: Unbelievably bad. It's like you're on a hidden camera show. The "line" is full of people pushing to the front where a disinterested server takes an order, chats with some co-workers, laughs for a while, decides to scoop out your slop before stopping at the register to get your bill. Every order feels like it's the first time anyone's taken an order- a tidy 7 minutes goes by while another 20 people have gathered in the clump. So you wait and wait and push and wait and wait some more for your gross food. Candies rocks!

Atmosphere: If the music is not blaring then things are Ok as long as you're inside. The family of rats prowling the second floor made me decide to stay in the AC the last time I went though.

Food at Candies has always I have felt been good, especially my absolute fav chicken steak in mushroom sauce and the malai chicken roti, even the pink lemonade is quite good...of course service at Candies has been an issue always coz dey are always crowded and you have to literally jump to get attention, which can be very irritating especially when you are hungry(which in my case is always true), also on my last visit i found out the prices have been increased which kinda is unsettling as good food at decent price was a USP of this place

Average Food, Great Ambiance

Bombay is a great city which has many, many things to offer but Candies has the one thing that is nearly non-existent in Bombay: SPACE. I climbed past the ground floor and was transported out of clustered, claustrophobic Bombay to a sprawling 5(?) storeyed, colonial mansion. Candies has various levels: sky garden, the forest, the room of lamps and some others that I cannot remember. Tables are scattered all over the place and in true Bombay style, every nook and cranny is utilized. Unlike most other Bombay establishments however, there is walking space between the tables. While the cramped cafe style of Leo's and Mondy's has its own charm, it was nice to sit at a table without being privy to the conversation at the 4 adjacent ones. The eclectic tile art work, the tributes to Michael Jackson and the lush green trees all around add to the casual charm of the place.

Ambiance aside, the food is largely pre-cooked and its a takeaway/ fast food sort of place. The food is average: not too bad not memorable either. It's greasy food that is definitely not good for your weight. But that has never been a deterrent and this time proved no different. I raided the salad bar and Nympho ordered the chicken fry both of which were OK.

The dessert at Candies is way better than its food. We tried a variety of the tiny desserts and I heartily recommend the jelly slice and the chocolate tart.

As wonderful as the ambiance is, the wait at the place is tortuous. It's self service and the lines are serpentine. It took us nearly half an hour to get our order and Nympho claims that this is the fastest service she has seen. They now have a counter on the fourth floor which is less crowded and infinitely quicker. Definitely try that.

The prices at Candies are very reasonable and quantities generous. Candies also attracts a lot of teenagers and can feel like a high school hang out at times. We walked out of there feeling old and very, very full.

I think you would be hard pressed to find another place like this in Bombay.

Ridiculous tasting cold coffee

Off late something is wrong with their cold coffee, which taste like it contains 3 shots of expresso and its only in this branch, they also run out of/ forget the chocolate, some times the cold coffees are luke warm at best 'cept when you order a cappuccino which comes ice cold (where are my mini desserts?!) . The reclamation and pali makes the old decent cold coffees and beverages, no hot beverages in pali hill outlet anymore though. Wonder why.

I think the quick tip needs changing, they never run out food now.

Home delivery can take up to 2 hours now, not to forget that dips**t over the phone.

Ok.. Im gonna write it short and simple..!! Candies has been my hangout place for last 3 yrs..!! Started from the small outlet near petit school.. and since den has grown up outstandingly well..!! But now i feel, its starting to turn down..!! 1st the price have gone up more than 70%.. which does hurt my pocket going on a regular base..

For the fact that annoys me the most is their service..!! The staff are non responsive and also take time to understand for the simplest things..!! If u ask for a chicken tikka roti.. They give u Paneer tikka instead.. which is very frustrating.. when u need food urgent..!! Impressively the food standard hasn't changed... Though i feel the quantity of the meals and combo meals is less than before..!! Still an awesome place to hangout.. The ambiance is one of a kind..!! For me, candies is now once in a month eating joint..!!

Prices - UP, service - DOWN, FOOD - still GOOD

Prices of meals have gone up from 100 to 170 in 1 year, seems strange. Maybe managing their demand to price graph?

The reason I write this review is because i'm annoyed by the service, its a self service place so all you really need is people who understand and arrange your order. Their new staff have a real issue understand English & Hindi. I kept repeating paneer tikka meal and was shown paneer roti, paneer tikka roti, at last we had to bend down and point it to the guy. Similar incident when ordering chicken roti, the guy kept showing us paneer rotis then showed us malai tikka roti, chicken tikka roti, he finally tells us that chicken rotis over and we got another guy to take our order who apologized for the other guys behavior .

It really is very irritating to stand in a line long enough to make friends and then deal with these idiots, anyone who has been here recently knows how pathetic their service is now. Its not a joy to eat in the non-ac sections in this heat, either.

Horrible hygiene and service

Candies has been an all time favourite and it pains to write awful reviews abt it. While the service has been ever depleting, they have started serving COCKROACHES in the food trays. To add more horror to it, i kept shouting for abt 20 mins that theres cockroach in the tray and to replace it. At least 4 of the order takers heard and understood it but no one had time to take action!!!! I dont understand what we are paying them for....food which has cockroaches in it!!!
I tried to confront the store manager and no surprises, when they were not ready to hear the word "cockroach" cud they hear "manager" with any decible!!!

WORST SERVICE IN THE WORLD

What used to be a local favourite has now become the most dreadful restaurant ever! It is a very sorry case of Candies where the service has taken a beating ...
Lemme just summarize my experience and tell u that i went to Candies today evening and it was not as crowded as it used to be. Despite that, the service was very slow... We kept waiting at the counter and trust me, nobody gave a damn. All the servers were glued to the IPL match playing on the large screen... Yes. After 20 mins I managed to get someone's attention. I called for 2 pieces of chatney sandwich and he placed them directly on a dirty green tray!! WTF? Are u running short of paper plates bro?
Then it took another 40 mins as the young lady at the billing counter was slow and clueless. My order was just lying in the tray getting stale...my coffee was just going cold. Totally frustrated with the service, I walked out..and believe me I was not the only one.

Candies just got expensive ......AGAIN!

Candies has been my mecca for food for the past three years. This place has been my first choice like foreever....when they raised the price by 10% late last year...we were ok with it...within the next two months they raised the prices by 15% and they raised it again by 10% this month..I mean what is happening here....imagine a roast chicken which cost you Rs.100 bucks last June costs Rs.170 today...its horrendus....I request the management to please re-consider the next price hike...we love candies....but can love it if it not affordable...please please

Most horrible service in the world

Like any othr eatery, Candies aftr bcming famous has 4gottn smethin very imp...GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE.
i used to hang around dis place wid my college frnz. Its ws best wid food n service.As we finsihed our PG degrees, v havnt been der for a while.
Day b4 our group met n we dcided to go 2 candies n re-live our good memories. V went der bet^ 11.30-1200pm
But to our shock... we had to wait for 20mins for placing the order....not bcoz der ws rush...coz all 10-15 ppl wrking der wer too busy placing food on the display and nicely ignoring customers who kept calling dem to tke d order...der wer 5mor ppl stnding wid me who kept sayin "excuse me, will u PLEASE tke d order"...n der ws no response.
the waiters jst acted deaf ears...ALL OF THEM!!
Evn mor the Chinkas wrking der wer evn mor pathetic, they looked the other way as if they didnt see...n made faces too.
All this while all i cud hear is the "EXCUSE ME's" frm the customers wid no1 der to pay heed.
Finally aftr 20mins 1 of d guys took our order, dat too after showing an expression wid said " yeah yeah..cming...Wat do u want now?"

No doubt the food quality is still d best...but if they treat customers so pathetic, soon they'll hav 2 close their eatery...

Evn the South Indian restaurants waiters r bettr.

Most dis heartening Experience EVR!!

Value for money but what about time!!

Candies is one place where I can anyday head to and have food which is not only good but also rightly priced.
However , it seems they simply dn't value time of their visitor. From last 3 visits without fail I have seen them making people wait fr about half an hour and more. Time matter more so because one has to stand to place the order.

Crazy lovin'

This place, I love! What makes it so special? Let me tell you!

Food- Candies has everything snacky and more. Rolls, sandwiches, starters, salads, rice, mini meals, breakfast, desserts, shakes, juices and what not! It’s one of those café’s where you can try something new every time you go there. Taste-wise everything is ok. The salads and shakes are great though! Also, I love the Veg Quiche and the Chutney sandwiches. Oh and the Chocolate Lava is to die for! That’s something you just must have! Also, the cupcakes are the best I’ve had so far!

Ambience- It’s my favourite café! I wish they made something like this in town! Candies at Pali Hill is so beautiful and well made that you’ll fall in love with the place instantly! There’s this instant connection that comes. Simple, sweet and lovely and of course, with its many levels, it’s huge! It’s ideal for a couple on a romantic date or a group of friends to just hang out. Oh and maybe once in a while you’ll also spot a celebrity.

Service- It’s a self service place and let me be honest, it’s a pain to get someone to respond to you ‘cause there’s too little staff for the amount of people that come here. So I really wish that’d improve.

Prices- The prices are just perfect. Everything is reasonable and easy on the pocket. The sandwiches and rolls are priced at Rs. 50 approx, the salad buffet is 80 bucks and you can stuff your plate all you want at one go, the shakes and drinks are about 50 bucks each, desserts start at Rs.6! If you go there after 8 pm, you get 25% off on anything! Now isn’t that an awesome deal?!

Verdict- Candies is definitely one of the most awesome places to hang out at in Mumbai. It’s sweet and lovely and totally affordable! If you haven’t been to Candies yet, you have no idea what you’re missing! It’s hard not to fall in love with this place! Highly recommended!

Simply Unique

Candies is my favorite place to head to in Bandra whenever I want to grab a quick bite.
The decor is absolutely brilliant. It has a very Italian/ greek cafe vibe. Its very spacious.
The food here is yum... I personally recommend the Salad Buffet...the stuffed olives and the tuna sandwich are my fav. You can fill your plate till the brim
The Chicken lollypops are cheesy n yummy. The lasagne is pretty good as well
Also your trip to candies cant be complete until to relish their yum pasteries.. The cheesecakes,tarts,carrot cakes, brownies are absolutely brilliant.
Next time you go to Bandra dont miss Candies. Its a unique experience and you will definetly keep coming back for more
Oh n did I mention how celebrities like visiting candies as well

Value For Money

The food is good and the ambience is simply amazing, great concept and great music. But the service is not good, specially at prime time, it is better to go at an off time. It helps to be a regular here though, service would be faster.
All in all, for a first try, do not go during rush hour.
All said and done, the price of the food is very cheap and you can't really expect too much service in this budget, so it gives absolute value for money.
Try the salad bar, iced tea and dragon chicken :P

Simple joys of life !

Sip on a hot cup of coffee...
Read a great book over a lazy sunday brunch ...
Fresh salad bar - every dieter's delight
Chinese - to beat a lousy day
Baked items - takes u in n out of a food coma.

As my subject reads, Candies simplifies a very complicated Mumbai life for me !!


Its a pleasure to step in each time :)

PS: Areas that need a lil attention - Bathrooms & crowd management... it can get a lil unnerving :)

Terrible service - poor crowd management

Candies at Mac Ronells is very, very popular - a fact borne out by the huge crowds at any time.

The crowds are so bad that you cannot even see the food displays in the cabinets prior to placing your order. If you want veg food, you may actually waste some time standing in the non veg line at first, merely because there is no board saying which counters are for veg food.

Once you reach the head of the counter, you have to wait inordinately long for one of Candies indifferent agents to deign to take your order. The person in front of me ordered a veg burger. After almost then minutes, the sales boy said there were no veg burgers. This is ridiculous, as though they should take so long to discover the absence of veg burgers!

Eventually of course, you will get some food.

The food is tasty though the pricing is on the higher side, given the rush, the crowds, the poor service and the general air of disorganisation.

This was our third visit but also our last. Our family will not be going there again. If we are paying those prices, the least you could demand is better service.

Food Pilgrimage

If ever u wanna go on a pilgrimage of food.. this is the place..Climb up the hill find a shrine and settle down...Awesome..
But then u realize gotta eat..
Ordering here is like praying to God..
U need a lot of faith to actually believe that anything is gonna be delivered...
But then who cares.. Its a pilgrimage..So behave like a pilgrim and shut up.. Enjoy the food and time..

Decent Food at Good Prices

If you don't mind the occasional long waits, which are longer during peak hours and even more on the weekeds, Candies is by far one of the better places to chill out and enjoy a nice meal or even a coffee (with cupcakes to die for! :P) in Bandra.

They have a nice buffet salad, which includes many options that please both vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. If you enjoy them, their selection of coolers such as ice teas and other such lemonade-style drinks will really do the trick of quenching your thirst.

The real clincher, which I'm sure many regulars will agree, is the vast open spaces inside the restaurant that allow many people to be seated and provide the patrons their own privacy. It definitely took me by surprise when I first went there; and now, after renovations, the seating capacity is even larger.

An afternoon wasted!

Although it has a lot of fame & a lot of hype, Candies is a total let down when it comes to their service & food quality.
There is absolutely no organisation in the way the staff conducts itself and after the 45 minutes wait in the line, the food is not even worth the wait.
The worst is the staff takes pride in this kind of behaviour which is all the more disappointing.
If you need a quick bite on the go, Candies is a wrong place to visit. Go there if you have hours & hours available to while away. And when it comes to food, I'm pretty sure Bandra has tastier joints.

The worst service ever!

Ok, i do love the food n stuff. but this place by far has the worst service ever..its a different thing that you cud be waiting there for 30 mins or more on a crowded evening.. but even at 8:30 am when there are barely 3 people at the counter you will have to wait there for 30 mins and still be left unattended..its because of the unattentive staff who think that its just fine to allow customers to stand there cluelessly... went there for b'fast this morning and even after waiting for 25 mins at the counter both the staff serving there were least interested to even acknowledge or show any sign of attendance.. and even when we told them that we have been waiting for the last 25-30 mins they just dint bother to look and apologize..absolutely no sign of remorse.. eventually we did walk out with a horrible start to the morning,. thankfully Bagel shop down the road turned out to be a plesant sunday b'fast,.. as far as Candies is concerned im definitely not goin there for a long time.. as the staff have no respect towards their customers even on an absolute free morning...

Bad service

Go to this place only if you wanna spend an hour tryin to get the attention of the guys who serve you to get you your food. Getting a bottle of water too may take you around 30 mins depending on the mood of the staff. Very badly managed place but a good place to hangout. just dont order for anything ...

Overhyped

Its a nice place when I was in college. Its a nice place if I want to hang out with a few friends now as well but I don't get what the hype is all about?

Food is priced really well but its a pain to get some! The Que is never ending. Why can't they just get some Waiters and start some service?

Pathetic Service.. overrated food

Its funny to see as to how much this place is hyped..i walked into the shop to pick up a few cupcakes and some other savory take away items...there is an EXCEPTIONALLY RUDE person behind the cupcake counter (a guy with a tattoo on his neck) who was exceedingly brash with us without reason. We waited our turn as civilized human beings and yet were given this reception...for somebody who can buy off the place if they wanted to, this came as an unpleasant shock. even the food isn't great at all..it has been hyped and the prices are reasonable so you have everyone from college kids to people meeting for the first time in person thronging over to this place...the management really needs to rethink about their staff and service provided and may be form a more systematic and organised as well as polite way of handling customers.
