With so many choices of quality Indian food in midtown ranging in all different prices and atmospheres, we wanted to highlight a spot that has many great and affordable dishes on the menu while also catering to the customer… something we have to admire. Bombay Palace’s dishes are flavorful and plentiful and the atmosphere, while a bit over the top, does make you feel like you are in a palace of sorts. If you can make it over for lunch before a matinee, you will be delightfully surprised at how good the quality of the buffet is and for a measly $12.95! Not being a huge fan of Indian fare myself, I was a little hesitant to “chow down” but I have to say the quality and the quantity of both hot and cold specialties were both highly impressive. The Tandori chicken was moist and full of flavor (but not too spicy!) and the saffron rice was perfect. Of course, the breads were my favorite. The Naan was fabulous and we couldn't’t stop dunking everything in the Raita ($4.95) which is a yogurt-based sauce that tastes like it’s been whipped with cucumbers and tomatoes. If you opt to go a la carte, the main dishes range in price but average at about $16-$18. We tried the Lamb Vindaloo ($16.95) and were delighted at how well-spiced it was, though quite filling. For pre- theater (or even post- theater which is great for those who enjoy dining later) Bombay offers a dinner buffet ($19.95) where you can choose from lists of appetizers and entrees that constantly changing and includes Pulao rice, (a long- grain basmati rice) a veggie, bread and coffee or tea. They are also quite accommodating when at all possible. If ordering a la carte, ask for sauces on the side if you’re not sure about them, or to try the soup and no doubt your wish will be granted.
