Bombay Café, Singapore has been on my to-go-to-eat list for a long time and I finally went last week, not once but twice. I went to the branch opposite Mustafe centre because they will most likely have the best cook. I had one lunch on a Tuesday and one dinner on a Wednesday, so we covered different times and different dishes. Note that it is a vegetarian restaurant.
Décor: Nice. They have movie posters of Bollywood framed all over. Pink and black as the website and the décor does not look outdated.
Music: Bollywood songs and they are not repetitive. Some places have 2 CDs they keep playing over and over again and it is not fun.
Service: Good. Food did come within a decent period of time.
Website: Can do with some updating. The menu with their price is on the website. GST and 10% service charges apply.
Now comes the most important part.
Food: These are things we ordered.
- Pani puri/ gol guppa – Disspointing. The puri was pretty thick, which is not how it should be.
- Pav Bhaji – Very good.
- Mango lassi – Good
- Kabab Sizzler – This consisted of various kebabs and starters served on a sizzling plate of jeera rice, a bowl of daal makhani and naan. The naan was great. Daal makhani was great. Too much rice – I do not like being served an overload of carbs. The jeera rice was very good. Grilled paneer – awesome. The paneer was definitely fresh and not frozen Grilled Cauliflower – awesome Stuffed potato (bharwan aloo)– was okay but I was too full by then Vegetable rolls – okay but then I was full.
- Dry gobi manchuria – awesome. Definitely one of the best I have tasted in Sg
- Naan separately – Awesome
- Grilled cauliflower (separately) – awesome
- Paneer butter masala – Great.
- Daal makhani (separately) – awesome
- Kulfi – great
- Rasgulla – okayish
