The scintillating scents of curry and ginger waft through Bombay Club to capture wandering noses from a comprehensive menu full of authentic Indian flavors. Vegan dishes fall in step with culinary commands to feed meatless militias with cumin-spiced potatoes and cauliflower in the aloo gobi ($14), while tempered vegetarian allies dine on the baigan bharta, puréed eggplant infused with a blend of ginger and freshly ground spices ($12). The deft chefs assuage kebab cravings with many speared specialties from the tandoor oven, such as the red-masala-marinated shrimp bihari ($19), or chicken malai enclosed in a creamy-sauce chrysalis ($16). Peruse the British Curry House menu for dishes reflecting an Anglo-Saxon influence like beef saag, distinguished by its creamy spinach and unruly devotion to Tottenham Hotspur ($18). Sides of fragrant basil-cheese naan ($6) and lentil-enhanced tamarind rice ($6) soak up stray sauce droplets and pre-clean plates for weary dishwashers.
