The first hangout serving Chinese cuisine in Dadar West – Gypsy Chinese has grown over the 32 years of its service to the taste buds. A Maharashtrian restaurateur along with a Maharashtrian chef, armed with skill and an indomitable spirit, started the venture with a humble 6 tables in 1982. Today, over the years, it has grown to 27 tables and a capacity of 90 guests, and boasts of the largest menu in the city to serve vegetarian and non vegetarian food. Starters and sea food being two of the specialities of the place, the table sauces are definitely on the top of the list.
The restaurant is a favourite among national and international food connoisseurs. With political leaders, Marathi and Hindi television and theatre personalities, respected and successful doctors and advocates frequenting the restaurant, Gypsy Chinese has come to be considered a lucky charm for many of them.
RAHUL LIMAYE- The man behind the legend
How about an ‘assal’ Maharashtrian running a Chinese restaurant?
Well, he may not be a Chef, but Harabhara Kabab is his innovation. Rahul Limaye is not your stereotype restaurateur. At 52 years of age, he may be a Diploma holder in Hotel Management and Catering Technology but his knowledge of local recipes and adapting an oriental menu to the Indian palette is what comes naturally to him. He became the first Maharashtrian, after Late Mr. Nanal of Chop Suey (which is non-existent now), to start a Chinese restaurant with a bar in Mumbai.
Rahul’s main hobby is to experiment and innovate not only in the food but also in ambience and other key aspects of restaurant operations as well. It is this trait that has given him the recognition of a successful restaurateur for the last twenty six years. While for people close to him, he’s simply the ‘Gypsyman’. Each of his delicacies is highly appreciated even today by his esteemed guests from homeland as well as abroad.
A humble Maharashtrian at heart and a strong believer in God he never fails to acknowledge his hard working staff and loyal clientele.
