Not so long ago, Bandra West wasnt so full of restaurants, designer boutiques and the ooze of urban coolness. But it has always been a laidback suburb. Dotted with crosses and churches, its streets held a largely Christian community that dwelled between small former fishing villages. So modest and sleepy was this place, at one time even taxis found it difficult to ply Bandra's narrow lanes.
From the middle of the 20th century the west-side, called Bandra West, evolved into something considerably trendier. Popular - and quality - restaurants began to spring up. Together with those churches, they became the iconic landmarks that now guide locals and visitors that hop in and out of the many bee-colored rickshaws swarming the area.
