We were walking on 9th Avenue when we stumbled upon Bombay Grill House and the photo of their thali, a plate containing various dishes making a full meal, from appetizer to dessert. I discover Thali many years ago in Mumbai and specifically remembered one that was vegetarian, that I loved, a weird thing to write considering my love for meat...Anyway, I kept Bombay Grill House in mind and few weeks later, we decided to try their cuisine. The place was not that full, although we could see traces of a large table that left probably before we arrived.
Without any hesitation, I went for their mango lassi that was pretty good: thick and not too sweet.
Jodi went for the vegetarian thali while I went for the non-vegetarian one. Hers had:
Paneer tikka masala:
Dal Pranchatna Jaipuri:
Kheer or rice pudding:
On my side, I got:
Dal pranchatna Jaipuri:
Rice pudding or kheer:
With the thali came some papadum as well as some naan, both delicious, although the naan did not look that great...
We left full. Definitely, for $16.95, the thali at Bombay Grill House is a good deal. The only regret is that you cannot choose one of the entrees and I thought that the choice of vegetable or lamb vindaloo was odd considering that this dish is usually very spicy (they made it mild for us). I would definitely go back there, but this time to try other dishes, although I might be again tempted by the thali. So good!
Enjoy (I did)!
