There is an all new restobar opened in Mumbai, that offers a one of a kind experience in the city. Innovative not only in the food it offers, but also in the entire dining experience. Called Derby#, this is an interactive bar where you can bid on virtually simulated horse races and bet on them.
The interior of the restaurant is refreshing with its brick walls and a bar that faces the entrance. The place is well lit, and yet just enough for you to have a pleasant dinner date if you plan on taking someone to a simulated gaming experience. Dining here becomes a rather different affair as the menu too, is curated differently.

So the guests who visit can download an app, check in on their phones, order food from the app as well as place their bets on the simulated horse race. The place is designed in such a way that every event will reward a guest who is lucky, keeping them fully entertained as they dine. The reward points that one wins from a race is in point form and gets converted as a direct discount in the total billing amount.
The menu is quite unconventional in the context of it being a derby-themed restaurant. While the usual derby fan housing spaces use fuller meats and alcohol in their menu, Derby has gone a completely different way, offering a delectable, mind blowing variety of Asian cuisine. Chef Mitesh Rangras has carefully curated the menu to make sure the place stands out from all the others who claim to offer the best experience. Derby goes a mile ahead with just the right options of having Tom Kha, Trufffle and Pea dumplings, Soba noodle salad, Smoked salmon with puffed rice and a several other options.
For those who are less experimental and prefer a comfort zone, the place will not bore you with the run-of-the-mill pizza and pasta on the menu, but give you a homely experience of comfort with its options of lamb and chicken in familiar but delicious Indian gravies.
Even if the virtual gaming seems like a new and may be too different an idea, the place is worth a visit only for its food. And if nothing, you can just visit here on a hot afternoon, have a light Asian lunch and spend time relishing its desserts that are the ultimate highlight of the menu. We recommend the chocolate chiffon cake and Avocado ice cream to get the best experience of Derby.
