Review: Bombay by the Bay

Bombay by the Bay, Bay by the Bombay…babababa.

After we could actually say the name of the restaurant in JBR, we were worried about where to park in the area. The very sad fact about JBR as I am sure we all agree is that it has been made beautifully and has come up very well but the parking and road infrastructure has been so poorly thought about that it has become the most dreaded place to visit for a chilled evening.

We did get there finally, its just above Paul’s on the first floor. The approach is a bit complicated to find. But once there, it has been decorated beautifully with lovely Peacock feather fans swaying back and forth on the ceiling. We got a table outside, under the huge and striking Rajasthani umbrellas. The service was helpful and friendly. We were in a big group so we ordered a couple of starters (Onion Bhaji and Tandoori platter) and a selection of Main course dishes (Dal Makhani, paneer lababdar and Malai Kofta). The food and breads came nice and hot. The taste- I would say was quite close to what Indian food should taste like. It was still a little westernised (read bland-ified).

All in all quite a good experience out f the few Indian cuisine choices at JBR. I would recommend it for decent food and ambiance.
