Brinker International has launched the second Indian Chili’s Grill & Bar in Powai, making it the 201st restaurant outside of the United States.

The menu at the Chili’s comprises the essence of Chili’s American-Southwest cuisine, with a touch of familiar for the local consumer. More than 80% of the food on offer can be suitably prepared for vegetarians. Though the menu is different than other Chili’s restaurants, there are familiar flavors and a heat profile that the local guest will appreciate and enjoy.

The first Chili’s in India opened in Bangalore and was developed by Jawad Business Group. The Chili’s in Powai is part of a 15 restaurant, five-year agreement that will expand Brinker’s presence throughout India. Jawad Business Group is experienced in developing other restaurant brands in India and has been a Brinker partner for several years, franchising Chili’s in Bahrain and Maggiano’s in Saudi Arabia.

“Chili’s will offer its guests a unique dining experience with bold, kicked up flavors,” said Reale. “From flavors they enjoy, such as Tandoori Chicken Sandwich and Paneer Bites to the Bombay Burger, guests will find local favorites with a Chili’s twist that stays true to its American-Southwest heritage.” Other specialties include citrus fire chicken shrimp fajitas, quesadilla explosion salad to be topped off with molten chocolate cake.

As part of the company’s goal to become the globally dominant casual dining portfolio company, Brinker International plans to have 500 restaurants open outside of the United States by 2014.


The new Chili’s is located at Ventury Building, Hiranandani Business Park, Central Avenue, Powai, Mumbai. Landmark: SBI. Opening hours are 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. daily. For reservation call Supriyo Mitra on 67419001/2/3/4 or 9892712708
