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.

Cheap and Tasty Desserts

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.

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.

Hangout Place

Being at the college nearby I always use to hang out at candies to enjoy snacks and drinks with my friends.. the sandwhiches and juices which i enjoyed.. the service and prices can be a little better though especially for youngsters since its a cool hangout place where more than the food the time spent is important

Buddy's Place

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.

Candies is just THE place to go to if you're in Bandra and want to have a quick bite. The chicken pie is super tasty and so is the cool coffee. The ambience is beautiful whether you're with a group of friends or your loved one or even alone! My favourite part is the desserts! I go there specially for the bluberry cheesecake.. its a must-have! All in all.. being a Mumbaikar, you should be here at least once!

Their Chicken Pie is one of those few dishes that would satiate an enormous appetite like mine. To add to it this is like 'the best place' to hang out, with a humongous compound this place can seat a huge group. All in all a fun hangout.

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.

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 Macaroni 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 ambiance is where my review begins & ends. Candies is famous for its ambiance 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.

Classic experience

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.

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, lasagna 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.

Cheesecake

One of my favorite hangout places. Love the snacks here. Spring roll with chips is my favorite. 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. Ambiance was so beautiful. Love candies :D

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.

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.

Can't stop loving Candies!

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 ambiance. 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!

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 unaccommodating 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 premise 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

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.

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.

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

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.
