Bombay Grill Bel Air - Very Promising start

Britboy | Aug 19, 2002 12:13 PM

We went back to the new Bombay grill in Harford mall Bel Air last night (Sunday) and the meal overall was very good and entrees excellent. Chicken Mughlai and Lamb Dopiaza with Chapatis (not renamed Tortillas) and a soft fresh naan. The rice was good and plentiful. They threw in a complimentary vegetable marsala. The eponymous House wine (Merlot) was pretty good but a bit pricy at $6.50 a glass (a good pour though) Deserts were good if a bit small - A cardomom Creme brulee (tastes better than it sounds) and a Kulfi.
Service was excellent and the waiter manager and owner all made it clear they are looking to make this new venture a success and are prepared to modify the menu offerings to meet the needs of their clients. There is no Lamb Keema on the menu - no problem, just ask we'll get the Chef to make it for you. Chicken Tikka Masala - how would you like it; I had a conversation with the owner about this benchmark dish and he told me that this was very popular in Northern India but that in Southern India you are judged by your Byriani (he told me to try the lamb version next time I came in. I will and it won't be long.
