The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavours into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's deal: for $14, you get $30 worth of tandoori eats, curry, and other Indian Fare and libations at Bombay Bhel Thornhill. The value of this Groupon may also be applied towards catering services.
Bombay Bhel's elaborate, elegant decor offsets traditional Indian dishes to give patrons a dining experience that's as exotic as it is enjoyable. Their menu of eastern eats includes tandoori-baked, chicken lollipops ($11.99), marinated drumsticks with spicy chutney, and fish masala curry ($15.99), dices of boneless fish fillet flavoured with authentic spices in a creamy tomato gravy. Bombay Bhel also features garden grub, like the palak paneer ($10.50), cottage cheese cubes simmered in spinach with a smidgen of dry fenugreek. Enjoy Indian culinary creations in liquid form with beverages like jeera paani ($2.50), a refreshing glass of tamarind water flavoured with cumin and stardust. While contemplating how many angels dancing on the head of a pin it took to build the Taj Mahal, guests are immersed in a meticulous dining room accessorized with elaborate murals, graceful archways, and soft, amber-coloured lighting.
- Hands down the best Indian food in the GTA. Super flavorful and not too greasy with unbeatable naan. Pakora, butter chicken, and non-veg thali are among the most delicious dishes served. – A TripAdvisor reviewer on Facebook
- Eaten here too many times to count and am never disappointed. Lamb vindaloo with a mango lassi is a go-to dish, but go with friends and try as much as you can. – David, Urbanspoon
Bombay Bhel Thornhill
When they became friends and collaborators, Dr. Avtar Singh Dhanoa and artist Fahim Hamid Ali weren’t just making a personal connection—they were crossing a historic divide created by the ongoing violence between Indian Sikhs and Pakistani Muslims. But despite their different cultures and religions, the two shared a passion for healing religious and political gulfs, and they began bridging that gap with their own partnership. Dr. Dhanoa commissioned Ali to paint artwork for his restaurant, Bombay Bhel Thornhill, that would reflect both of their heritages. Inspired, Ali crafted eight wall murals and 50 tabletop paintings whose subjects range from a woman by a well in a Pakistani village to lovers from famous Punjabi folk tales. The artworks work together to create a unique, welcoming atmosphere that has caught the attention of the Toronto Star and drawn in various local and international diners.
The guests admire Ali’s brushstrokes as they savour traditional Indian cuisine that earned the restaurant four sequential Best of Richmond Hill awards. The culinary team simmers butter chicken and sprinkles ginger and chilies over chicken and beef baked in a tandoor clay oven. Housemade paneer cheese and shrimp nestle in curries that diners scoop up with freshly baked naan or pair with rice. In addition to sating hunger inside the dining room, Bombay Bhel Thornhill caters for parties and barrister sock hops.
