Barbeque Nation is currently running a ‘Mohammed Ali’ Road festival at its outlet which aims to recreate the flavours and delicacies of Mohammad Ali Road and Khao Gali at its Barbeque Nation outlets from the Mumbai’s famous food streets. This food apparently typifies Iftaar street food in Mumbai.

The signature dishes for the festival included Bhuna Chicken– slightly saucy spicy chicken, served live from a tawa Tuck into plate of ZamZamPulao– a rice dish that consists of chicken, mixed vegetables and nuts,
There was a live-counter on a rehri-cart, where dishes like Mutton Shammi Kabab, Gurda Kaleji: Chicken Shikampuri Kabab. Another Dish from the live counter which was really tasty was the Chicken Baida Paratha- another signature dish of Mohammad Ali Road.
