Bombay By The Bay
Dubious curries and dithering staff at this JBR Indian eatery
Time Out Says
Like many of its neighbours, Bombay by the Bay now finds itself opposite the site of a new mall, where once there was a stretch of beach. Though the small outdoor terrace is pleasant, its view is now sadly obscured – and given the inconsistency of what’s coming out of the kitchen, this could spell disaster for business at the Indian eatery. For a restaurant with a name that refers to its beachside location, the seafood on offer is alarmingly hit-and-miss. While the tandoori king prawns are fresh and richly marinated, aided by the smoky flavour from the oven, the Goan fish curry is little short of unpalatable, and suspiciously unlike the hammour the waiters claim it contains. On the contrary, if you prefer your meal without a side of Russian roulette, the vegetarian dishes are fairly reliable, and you won’t go far wrong with a gobhi aloo. On the whole, however, head further inland to the likes of Discovery Gardens, Al Barsha and Karama for truly dependable Indian fare.
