Serving the Indians since 1956, Gaylord happens to the oldest and most wonderful food place in Mumbai. Gaylord was the first Indian food place to have the open-air bakery.

The restaurant is divided into two sections i.e. a beautiful open garden space (looks like a patio) and air-conditioned indoors.
