The best Bhurji I have had in the entirety of Mumbai has been at Thane station. Starting around 10 pm, this Bhurji shop, just where the SATIS bridge starts at Platform 2 is made Pav Bhaji style, making sure it is filling, delicious and doesn’t burn a big hole in your pocket.

- Pav Bhaaji – Amruta’s
The best Pav Bhaaji in Thane has to be Amruta’s near the station. While Ghatkopar’s Achija wins all over Mumbai, Amruta’s is one of the most flavourful Pav Bhaajis this side of town! Special mentions: Hotel Veggies at Castle Mill comes second.
