On the trail of Irani Cafés with Rafique Bagdhadi
Mumbai, India’s financial capital, has been famous for many things and one of the most loved have been the street-corner ‘Irani cafes’ that sprouted up in the late 18th and early 19th centuries due to an influx of Persian immigrants. We take you on a tour of the best of the remaining ones because, as the new edges out the old, Irani cafes, it seems, are no longer anyone’s cup of tea.

Meeting point : inside Kayani Café
