Hyderabad: 18th May, 2017: With SodaBottleOpenerWala, the Olive group gives you a concept that is unique to India; the dying legacy of the wonderful chaotic, crowded, bustling, colourful, quirky, cluttered, eccentric world of an Irani café. Our way of reviving the dying legacy of the disappearing race of these cafes.
SodaBottleOpenerWala is your quintessential Bombay Irani Café and Bar with all its idiosyncrasies in place. It brings with it typical Parsi cuisine, some Irani specialties, pearls that sparkle on the streets of Bombay and signatures from old-world clubs, along with a well-stocked bar - in a fun, quirky and contemporary avatar.
We take things a step further by introducing a new menu at with a variety of choices for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
Presenting a quirk a day, the Daily Specials at SodaBottleOpenerWala lend a different flavour to each of the 7 days of the week. On Mondays, enjoy a simple Dhan Daar Patio, the classic home food of the Parsis; on Tuesdays relish Paneer wrapped in Parsi-style green chutney.
Wednesdays Chicken Sanju baba, a dish from Noor Mohammadi, a famous Bombay restaurant opposite Bhendi Bazaar, whose recipe is supposed to have been given to them by actor Sanjay Dutt is served.
On Thursdays a delicious Bombil Fry with mild spices makes an appearance; Fridays get indulgent with Gos No Saas, a unique Parsi-style curry with Magical taste; Saturdays bring in a delicious Goan Prawn Curry, made with coconut, red chilli, kokum and Goan spices , and on Sundays, we bring you a Parsi delicacy - Masoor ma gos where mutton on the bone is cooked with whole Masoor.
All the good things
Trace every nukkad and gali of Bombay through staples like Boil egg Sandwich, Bhuna Chicken Sandwich and the Raasta Sandwich, the everyday grab-and-go fuel of Bombayiites from a CEO to an average wage earner. Get your fix of the Bombay bun with a simple Vada Pav, or a sumptuous Chicken Cutlis Pav. Lift your spirits with the Cheese Cherry Pineapple Salad with blue cheese dressing, and lots of nostalgia. The real taste of Bombay lies in its street food and Bhel is a must-do! We do the Crispy corn bhel , with flavours reminiscent of chowpatty visits. Salad Shirazi inspired by the Iranian city Shriaz comes in a honey-lemon-pomegranate molasses. Each of these dishes tells a story of Bombay street food, and its constant evolution to accommodate the food preferences of new settlers and their cuisines, to merge it into its own.
Explore the gastronomical side of Bombay through the Chicken Baida Roti inspired from the hugely successful one served at Bade Miya in Colaba. Crispy Kanda Bhajjiya at SodaBottleOpenerWala is reminiscent of the rains and of the bite before you catch the local. Chicken Farcha, a special Parsi preparation of fried chicken makes a lovely bar snack. Equally delightful are vegetarian mouthfuls of Aloo Aunty’s Cutlet and Mushroom on Khari. Chilli Cheese Pav, with or without chicken spells comfort food reminiscent of everyone’s childhood – a wheat bran pav is topped with chicken, lagan nu achar, green chillies & Emmental cheese and is baked to perfection. Bhendi Bazaar Sheekh Paratha, combining juicy seekh and crispy fried paratha that originated in the lane behind the Bartan Market, is a must have, too!

Dhansak in variations of vegetables, chicken or mutton served with caramalised brown rice spells comfort food.
