Artsy Interiors Meet Wholesome Flavours At Smoke House Deli 2.0
Here’s why we think the revamped version of the cafe deserves a visit
Smoke House Deli’s iconic Pali Hill, Bandra’s outpost just went up a notch—with an all-new avatar in the form of Smoke House Deli 2.0. The artfully imaginative, wholesome and evolved version retains its ‘handmade with love’ ethos. ELLE stopped by for a tasting experience.
A Warm, Cosy And Artsy Ambience
With an entrance surrounded by planters, we walked in feeling the positive vibes. Influenced by Portuguese culture, the quirky illustrations on the walls add its own charm to the space. Larger than life windows let ample amounts of daylight get in, just enough for us to get that perfect Instagram shot of our dish! As fans of pop music, we enjoyed their playlist–give us upbeat covers and renditions of hit tracks and we’re happy. What’s more? A second floor with an equally warm atmosphere and WiFi for you to work with a view.
Food That Satisfies Your Soul
We started with decadent appetizers, the Smoke Houses Dips and Crisps and the cafe’s new addition Smoke House Deli Charcuterie, which offers house-cured meats and sausages along with a cold potato salad. Next, we dug into the classic crowd favourites–hand-rolled pizzas, housemade pasta and grilled meat meal. Our recommended picks include the Grilled Peri Peri Chicken Pizza, Wild Mushroom, Smoked Chicken and Aged Parmesan Risotto and House Spiced Smoked Chicken. Ending our meal on a sweet note, we tasted the indulgent Tiramisu and an artisanal handmade dark chocolate ice cream, Donnie Darko that melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into it—an absolute winner for us!
If you follow a vegan, keto-friendly or gluten-free diet, SHD 2.0 takes care of that too with an array of options ranging from fruit salads, organic egg dishes, vegan desserts and other signature delicacies.

Safety Is Prioritised
The dining experience here is safe as they sanitize your table before your visit. We were pleasantly surprised to see that even our cutlery was packed and served separately—brownie points to put our minds at ease.
