I have to commend and new pizza outlet that opens up and attempts to take on the big outlets such as Dominos, Pizza Hut and Smokin' Joes. While it may be easier to compete with these outlets by sticking to gourmet pizzas, it is far more challenging to compete on the price point while offering simple pizzas. In such case it may not be fair to actually compare these smaller outlets to the big players, but one of my duties as a food critic/blogger is to be absolutely impartial and while I do respect the efforts being put in by upcoming restaurants, I must give an unsympathetic and unbiased review. 
Quality and Taste of Food: The pizzas have a respectable quantity of toppings and chicken, and there are no complaints on that score. The bread and has a certain level of freshness, comparable to Dominos, but no where near the quality of Pizzahut. Their thin crust itself is pretty thick, so I would recommend you order the thin crust only. However, the pizzas lose points on the quality of cheese used. The cheese is stringy and gooey, but unfortunately it tastes rather stale. The cheese also fails to give out a good aroma, and has a very subtle odour. It is because of the quality of cheese that I have deducted a lot of points in this category, and quality and taste of cheese is one of the main criteria while rating a pizza. A little improvement in this one area could really make this place superb.
Unfortunately, they have no options for dessert. This again is a big negative.
Placing Order: Their website is easy to navigate. However, it may be easier to order through Zomato or Swiggy.
Price: This criteria was the saving grace for this place. The pizzas are very reasonably priced. Honestly, I do not think that one can expect non-veg pizzas from a proper restaurant at prices lower than the ones they are offering. If you know any pizza outlet in Mumbai that can compete in the 'price' category, please let me know in the comments below, I would love to hear it. 
Packaging: Poor. The cheese stuck to the top of the box. Even the regular-size boxes are so flimsy that they bend easily. Condiments provided were oregano and chili-flakes. No ketchup sachets provided unfortunately. 
Delivery : The order was delivered within the time promised and the delivery person was fairly polite. The food remained hot even on arrival.
Offers: Currently, one can get a 20% discount on orders from Zomato.  Once can also get a 30% discount by ordering directly from their website. Certain other combos are also available when ordering through the website.
In-depth Analysis: (Our overall rating is not an average of the sub scores below.)

Worth the Price:

Rating Chart:
1.0-2.9: Torture.
3.0-5.5: Waste of time.
5.6-6.9: Decent. But can be skipped.
7.0-7.9: Good.
8.0-8.6: Great! Don't miss it.
8.7-10:  If you are a man, you can miss witnessing the birth of your child for this. This is a greater miracle.
