Samovar’s single chai (tea) priced at a reassuring Rs 5 has comforted a clientele of artists, writers, musicians, tourists and researchers over the decades.
After a hard day of reading and maneuvering at the Maharashtra State Archives across the road, researchers make their way to Samovor at 5:30 pm and are happy to find prices that have some resemblance to those on the documents they study.

    Bombaywalla massively changed my view on Bombay and India in general. The articles are concise with variety and richness in the content and the pictures are of great quality. Tumbs up to the whole team! I hope I’ll have the opportunity to visit the country in the future 🙂
