Just when we thought there wasn't any more room in Bandra to accommodate anyone else after the recent spate of openings in the suburb, Star Anise, a spanking new premium dessert store just popped up. Here, you'll find pretty plated desserts with artistic swirls and smudges of ingredients, courtesy of Chef Anees Khan, a former employee at Moshe's. We recommend the Saveurs du Moyen Orient, a Middle eastern inspired semolina cake with hints of almond and coconut, as well as the Aimee, a velvety little mountain of rose, raspberry and lychee flavored white chocolate cream. Skip the savoury items and head straight for the dessert. It's where the action's at.
