bombay talkie and kathi rolls or kati rolls

I noticed no one's posted on this new restaurant yet, though it's gotten some hype...

I went there on last saturday night for dinner, late-ish. Is it fair to judge a restaurant during their first week? I'm not sure, so i won't give you so much judgment as description.

They have a long menu, with a bunch of different sections. I imagine the menu will get shorter and it'll get clearer what types of dishes go with others...It's supposed to be south indian-oriented.

a few things were lovely--the grape/mint raita was super good, both vegetables we ordered--smoked eggplant and "fried" (really more conventional curried) okra were great.

they have kat(h)i rolls and dosa--both in traditional and non-traditional (i.e. w/meat) forms, and i have to say, both that i tried were pretty bland. And the kati roll was pretty lukewarm. And their portions are really small.

I had an interesting cocktail that included rose's lime juice and some sort of saffron liqueur that was quite good.

they're going for the tabla-type audience, if you're expecting regular indian food (and portions), you'll be terribly diappointed.

the decor is quite nice. They're still getting set-up, in a way, service wise.

I want to go back to try the malt ice cream at the very least, and perhaps more of the cocktails. For the foo-foo stuff!

and, lastly, are there any other purveyors of kati rolls or kathi rolls in the city? besides the one in the village? i want a really good one and they're so hard to find.
