Mumbai is known for its vibrant street food culture, and chaat corners are an essential part of that experience. Please note that the situation might have changed since then, so I recommend checking for the most recent reviews and recommendations. Here are seven popular chaat corners in Mumbai that were well-regarded:

Famous for its delicious pani puri (also known as golgappa or puchka), Elco Pani Puri Centre in Bandra offers a variety of flavored water and fillings to tantalize your taste buds.
Gupta Chaat Centre, Vile Parle:
Known for its mouthwatering sev puri, dahi puri, and pav bhaji, Gupta Chaat Centre in Vile Parle is a go-to spot for locals looking for authentic chaat.
