Exploring Thane – Prashant Chaat Corner

Prashant Corner started off some 6 to 7 years back as a small one room shop and now it has grown so much that it has branches in other parts of Thane too. More than the main sweet shop what it is famous for is the chaat corner which dishes out Mumbai street food in a very hygienic atmosphere.

Location: Panch Pakhadi, Thane.
Timing: 4:00p.m. to 9:00p.m. every day.

Age:6 and 1/2 years old

Owner of the Chaat Counter : Mr.Mani, a Tamilian from Salem!!

Famous dishes: Panipuri, Sevpuri, Dahivada, and Tikki Chhole/Ragda Pattice.

The Chaat Corner is run by Mr.Mani. Mani and his Tamilian entourage used to work for the once famous Gurukrupa Chaat Bhandar in Sion. Due to personal reasons Mr.Mani split from the owner of Gurukrupa, and so did all the other Tamilian workers. They started with two outlets in Thane right outside Prashant Corner, and another one which has now closed down at Brindavan which houses most of the South Indian, and Sindhi population of Thane.

USP of Prashant Corner:
Cleanliness and hygienic practices.

Price Tag:
A plate of ragda pattice costs about Rs.17/- and contains two big aloo tikkis smothered with lots of chhole. You also get beet coated onion rings, dhania and dahi(if you ask).

Parcels: They provide take aways too. The food gets packed in individual food grade disposable plastic containers at an additional cost of Rs.5/-, along with tissues and plastic spoons.

Home delivery: Home deliveries, and party orders are taken a day before. Delivery is provided only for bulk orders.

Quality of food: Delicious and hygienically made

    Anon(2), Mr.Mani is the manager and person responsible for running 'the chaat counter' at each of Prashant's outlet. But the shop is owned by Mr.Prashant and Mr.Mani is not responsible for the sweets or other namkeens Prashant's Corner sells.

    I haven't been to their food factory. Thanks for the info. Will definitely visit when I go there next time.

    This is such a great idea Harini! We eat out so much … maybe I can start something like this too about Pune eateries. Mind if I take a page out of your book? 🙂

    The review was well versed complete with plenty of clicks..the hygiene factor is certainly the USP of an eatery..admirable to see you have highlighted it here..another precious addition to the review would be your personal favourite food and of course the reason:)
