Bombay Cafe Restaurant Review

: Following a trend toward modern versions of such classic cuisines as Thai, Italian, French and others, Bombay Café created what some have dubbed Cal-Indian cuisine. But traditionalists need not be deterred --- this fresh, lighter take on the venerable curries and masalas of yore does not forsake authenticity. In fact, Bombay Café offers a wealth of authentic dishes, including items you might buy from a vendor on the streets or beaches of Bombay, such as burrito-like frankies filled with lamb or cauliflower, or uttapam, a semolina griddle cake topped with tomatoes, onion, green chilies and cilantro. Samosas and pakoras are top-drawer, and we are impressed with entrées such as sindhi chicken, poached with onions, ginger, chilies and masala, then sautéed with mango powder, coriander and hot peppers. Other specialties include Goan shrimp curry cooked in a purée of white poppy seeds and spicy lamb masala. All of the dishes from the tandoor are aromatic and flavorful, the curries creamy, and the many varieties of traditional breads ideal for mopping up sauces that are pungent but not fiery. Bombay Café usually offers a wide selection of chutneys: intriguing varieties such as spicy tomato, walnut and tamarind-date.
