Bombay Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Bombay Bar & Grill has bypassed the typical Indian décor in exchange for a modern, colorful setting. Opulent upholstered seating welcomes diners, while an expansive, mosaic-backed bar anchors the space. But it’s not just the front of the house that impresses; the kitchen consistently turns out quality dishes, from the traditional to the innovative. Starters include the classic pakoras and samosas, while mains range from tandoori-cooked meats and seafood to biryanis, curries and thalis. Specialties include marinated seafood cooked in a clay pot over charcoal, coconut lamb, and Tibetan-style chicken chau chau. Several Indian-inspired desserts are also available, including kheer (rice cooked with milk and spices) and kulfi (pistachio and saffron ice cream).
