To commence this review with, I was really bursting with excitement at the prospect of getting a chance to reviewing Zomato Restaurant guide 2012. I expected the guide to be a condensed version of Zomato's website which is by far the best one around when it comes to restaurant reviews and their relevant details. I guess my expectations were too high and I ended up being disappointed.

Let get started with the pros of the guide book first: At first glance, the book looked promising enough to me with it's impressive number of pages and informative index, hence, I devote an entire hour reading each and every page of it. The guide book has listed almost all top-notch as well as well-known restaurants and cafes in the Mumbai region, arranged in alphabetic way, which makes it easy to navigate. Segregation of restaurants and cafes on the basis of mood wins an another brownie point for this guide book. It has also listed the cuisines available, address, phone numbers, approximate expenditure on a meal for two and so on which is good too.

Now onto the downsides: I expected that the guide book would have menus of restaurant along side its detailed review, both of which were totally absent. But smartphone users have got an upper-hand in this as this book lists restaurants with their QR Code using which you can access the menu and detailed review on Zomato's website. Plus, the typical cost  mentioned along with restaurants are actually misleading! For instance, I being a Bandra person know that though Candies is definitely affordable than most restaurants in and around Bandra, it is not the cheapest and if you are planning to go and have a good meal with a budget of mere Rs.200/- you would just be able to get a quick snack and not a meal.  

Overall, if you need a quick info on the neighbouring restaurants this book can come handy but, in an age where you can easily access everything from you phone, lugging around a fat book doesn't makes any sense. Hence, I give his book a 1.5/5.
