Bombay Bungalow located at JBR is the restaurant that uses traditional Indian recipes which are developed in a unique and contemporary way with a twist to the classics. They serve modern Indian cuisine and I must say their presentation is amazing. Each dish is better than the other. The moment you enter Bombay Bungalow you see is a huge ancient Bungalow facing the sea with rustic decor. They have antique displays all over the restaurant that gives the restaurant a great ancient look and feel. I settled in pretty well with a table facing the sea.The restaurant has a nice indoor seating and a huge outdoor seating facing the sea.
I stated off my dinner with their mocktails, Champagne of the East (Chilled Ice tea with roasted fennel and orange) and Weight of Gold (Chilled coconut water with Indian spices topped with soda and passion fruit). The mocktails were refreshing. Moving onto the starters, Raita Tray where the Raita is prepared by your table-side with a tray of ingredients and customised according to your choice. I chose to have all the ingredients in the raita with a pinch of salt and their special spice mix. It was delicious. The next starter was the Corn & Sprouted Mung Chat with was topped with tamarind chutney and yogurt. And then I had the Guac Pani Puri which had avocado salsa with spicy chilli tamarind dressing . This Pani puri was unique and I loved the filling.
Now coming to the main course I had Harissa Chicken Tikka with was served with roasted garlic yogurt. The spices were perfect and went well with the dip. The portion is quite big and good to share between 2 or 3. Burrata Butter Chicken is a must have dish. Your visit to Bombay Bungalow will be incomplete if you do not have this dish. Chunks of Chicken in fenugreek tomato based gravy is Burrata Butter Chicken and it is luscious. I also tried the Veg Kofta Curry which has a similar gravy like the Burrata Butter Chicken. Cheese Butter Naan went really well with these gravy dishes.Biryani rice was a great combination with the Veg Kofta curry.
There is always room for desserts no matter what and I couldn’t leave Bombay Bungalow without having their amazing dessert creations. Coconut Rasmalai and Gulab Jamun Chocolate Cheesecake were divine. The presentation and the taste was scrumptious.
Their service was outstanding. Our server explained what each dish was and i enjoyed listening to him. The restaurant Manager Jijesh and Layal made sure we had a wonderful dining experience. Kudos to the team !!
