If you want really nasty Indian food, come to Bombay Bistro! I’ve never had a meal that failed from beginning to end, so this is a first. For $35.95 you can have the “family set” dinner that feeds four. This set includes an appetizer of extremely greasy, unusually red “Chicken 65” special, chock full of bean sprouts and onions.
After that, indulge yourself in overcooked, dried-out Tandori Chicken, tasting as someone forget to season it, and on top of that, left it out to bask in the sun after a long forgotten trip to the oven.
To compensate for the dehydrated tandori chicken, Bombay Bistro offers up watered down Chicken Tikka Masala. It’s more akin to colored liquidy cream than anything else.
Consider yourself lucky to find a cube or two of paneer in your Palak Paneer, a tiny bowl consisting of more oil and bay leaves than spinach. There must have been a paneer shortage in the kitchen, cause I doubt there were more than eight tiny cubes in this bowl.
For the price of $34.95, you’d think they could also throw in some basmati rice, but instead you get 2 doughy rounds of garlic naan. The middles were suspiciously undercooked. Somehow these two pieces of naans are supposed to suffice as the starch for four people. What were they thinking?!
And to top it off, they’ve even got a quartet belly dancers with swords dancing to Carlos Santana on the weekends. You can find Bombay Bistro next door to the pet store that specializes in lizards. (I don’t usually bad mouth restaurants, but this was one of the worst meals I’ve ever had…like make your stomach lurch kind of awful). I promise my next post will be something delicious!
