Very Good Indian in a tough location- Latham (Albany)

We had a lovely take out meal from the new Bombay Grill in Latham last night. We usually get take out from Curry House, but I didn't feel like parallel parking in a pile of snow. Bombay Grill is on Watervliet-Shaker Road, on the other side of route 9 from Bella Napoli. The building had been a Japanese place for a while, and then another Indian restaurant, but a few weeks ago it became Bombay Grill. It's owned by the same people who had the place in the food court in Colonie Center Mall, which was the only thing worth eating there, IMHO. We thought the food last night was really quite good. As good as Curry House. Maybe not up to the ranks of Karavalli, but not as pricey either. Much better than Latham Biryani. They have some items on their menu that you don't see all the time. One chicken dish we had was Chicken Mango. Really delicious and not heavy like the cream-based dishes. The tandoori chicken was also excellent. They have a few Chat dishes as appetizers as well as items I've never seen before, such as dahi bera and golgappay. Most of the meat entrees are chicken, including a lot of kebabs, but there are also lamb, shrimp, fish and goat dishes. There's no beef. All the meat is Halal. Two of the vegetable dishes you don't see all the time are bhindi masala and bangan aloo. For dessert they have gulab jamun and resmali among other items. And 5 kinds of lassi, 3 fruit shakes and 5 fruit juices. I'm looking forward to going back and trying some more of their menu. I just hope they get enough customers in that tough location to stay in business.
