Hill Road (officially renamed as Ramdas Nayak Road) is an arterial road in Bandra (West), Mumbai, India. It starts from the intersection of Bandra railway station road and Swami Vivekanand Road (SV Road) and goes west up to Mehboob Studio, leading to the Bandstand Promenade, the Bandra Fort, and Mount Mary Church, Bandra. Hill Road is a popular shopping street and houses a number of old and new brands, hand in hand with the omnipresent illegal street vendors leading to severe traffic congestion.
Right from its intersection with SV Road, one comes across Lucky restaurant, famous for its biryani, and thereafter a series of general stores selling items and services ranging from paint, plumbers, wood and carpenters to clothes, ATM's, restaurants and telephone services. Further west, past the Bandra police station, the road takes on its shopping avatar. The Globus mall, Benzer stores, Elco Arcade, Shannon stores, Abro, Cheap Jack etc. lie on this stretch. Eating joints such as Balaji restaurant, Mocha Mojo, J. Hearsh's bakery, Gazebo restaurant and A1 Bakery also line the road.
One of the Mumbai most famous schools, St. Stanislaus High School, and its adjoining St. Peter's church, St. Joseph's girls' school, the Apostolic Carmel convent school and St. Andrew's Church (Mumbai) all lie on Hill road. Two prominent Hospitals, Bhabha hospital and Holy Family Hospital also lie on Hill road. The Tata Parsi agiary built in 1873 is a prominent landmark on Hill road.
