Bombay Kitchen + Bar: Indian Cuisine on Commercial Drive

Diana Chan January 14, 2019 Commercial Drive / Grandview, Indian

Bombay Kitchen + Bar is located on Commercial Drive near Parker Street and they serve up a modern twist to traditional Indian dishes like tandoori, curries, naan, roti, etc. They also do delivery and pick up, so it’s convenient if you want Indian cuisine.

We were invited to try a few of their popular items.


The interior is nice and modern. They have large tables for bigger groups. They also take reservations so that’s great to secure your spot for a party.



They have a varieties of cocktails on the menu that are alcoholic or non-alcoholic. You can have it more sweet and fruity or more bold and strong.

They also do have the usual Mango Lassi, and Masala Chai Tea drinks. It’s good to have options so you can have it with your meal.

Papadum with Mint Chutney

Papadum is a crisp lentil cracker and it’s paired with their mint chutney. I love papadums as it’s like a large chip but made with lentils. The crunch is music to my ears.

Sweet Chili Gobi

This dish has fried cauliflower fritters in a sweet and sour sauce. The sauce had a good balance between the sweetness and spice, definitely good and tasty. We did notice that the longer you leave the dish, the more soggy it gets.

Veggie Pakora

A classic item to get at any Indian restaurant. It has mixed vegetables battered and deep-fried. It is crisp and paired with a chutney dip. A good texture too.

Tandoori Goat Chops

One of our favourite dishes of the night and it’s also one of their house specialties. It has tender goat chops with crisps. Highly recommended.


They have a few different curries on the menu and it is best with basmati rice so you can scoop a little curry and some rice to enjoy.

Lamb Kalya is a boneless lamb braised in an aromatic curry. Very tender and full of flavour.

Malai Kofta has mixed vegetables and paneer dumplings in a light tomato and cream sauce. The dumplings had a texture like a potato ball, which adds texture to the curry.

Butter Naan

Buttered Naan is classic to dip into curry. It comes out nice and hot, plus it has a good chew. It’s always good to have both naan and rice to go with curry.

Final Thoughts

The restaurant is nice, has friendly staff, and the food was pretty good. The prices are fair and there are a lot of varieties of dishes on the menu to check out.
