Lounge Review | Foodhall, Mumbai
Food shoppers often confuse quality with price and imported food. Expensive foreign food is not necessarily better or healthier. The Future Group enters the food retail market with its first premium food store at a time when foreign food is equated with a desirable lifestyle.
Foodhall is neither a supermarket nor a boutique. In sheer size (15,000 sq. ft) and variety—coupled with the fact that it is a food-only store—it is one of its kind in Mumbai.
The staff isn’t knowledgable. I was taken on a tour by a manager, after which I decided to navigate the store myself. Most salespersons could not answer simple questions. Foodhall is meant for those who know their brands. The non-vegetarian section is limited, with only chicken and turkey. Ready-to-go meals and sandwiches aren’t of gourmet quality.
It’s a wide range, starting from around ₹ 40. Prices of Indian foods are on a par with the supermarket prices.
