"The new children's menu is developed based on principle of ‘Food Exploration’ which is all about creating food experiences children will find intriguing and exciting.

The Insider Guide to Travelling with Children features advice from local business professionals such as Albert Amanna, head concierge, InterContinental Marine Drive, said, “In Mumbai, travelling in a taxi is considered the best way of getting around the mega-city, especially for a tourist. This is by far the most comfortable option, although not always the fastest, due to the sheer volume of traffic on the roads.”
