SquareMeal Review of
With glitzy branches in New York and Beverly Hills, it might seem odd that the Bombay Palace group chose a rather incongruous location, beneath a 1970s’ block of flats, for its London site.
However, the owners clearly knew what they were doing, and once through the doors, the dining room’s dark walnut tones, contemporary chandeliers and cream walls suggest real pedigree. ‘Sublime’
regional cuisine is the kitchen’s USP, with a starter of amritsari macchi (battered fish marinated in lime and caraway seeds) offering something different from the curry-house norm. To follow, make
a beeline for the special Kashmir lamb curry or chicken tariwala (a Punjabi speciality). All the usual sides, vegetables, breads and rice are up for grabs, while desserts such as pistachio ice
cream maintain the Indian theme. Handy for home deliveries, too.
