Bombay Masala Indian Restaurnat
56, ChangChun St
This very attractive, upscale-looking Indian restaurant is in the same spot once occupied by Andrew Indian Restaurant, facing a small park just off of the HuaMei Street canal. However, new Chef/Owner Kamal Singh has completely changed the menu with an extensive selection of main-course dal, chicken, lamb, vegetable and seafood curries, such as the popular Murgh Makhani Curry (NT$220), featuring chicken tikka cooked in thick savory tomato curry, or the Yellow Lamb Curry (NT$220), prepared with five different masalas. In addition to kabab entrees, there are various side dishes, such as roti and nan breads, papadums, pakoras, and desserts. Soft drinks include Lassi yoghurt drinks and Indian Milk Tea, and there are various wines, beers and other liquors. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Ann Lee
A. The hearty NT$369 Set Menu Dinner special provides a lot of food, including a selection of any curry or kabab entree (Chicken Tikka pictured), plus salad, yogurt, papadum, pakora, tomato or chicken soup, all-you-can-eat rice, soft drink, bread selection (like the pictured Jeera Rice and Garlic Nan), and dessert. Equally good are the four Commercial Lunch specials (NT$150-199) that include a curry, rice, bread, salad and soft drink.
B. Bombay Masala's decor is tops for high-end ambiance, with romantic lighting, deep-red walls, dark-wood chairs, floors and highlights, and classy Indian prints.
