As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, much like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Bombay Palace on Jarvis Street.
Bombay Palace lays out a flavourful bounty of Northern Indian cuisine made with fresh and healthy ingredients. The menu reflects the diverse culinary stylings of the Indian subcontinent, from the succulent chicken tikka masala ($14.95) washed down with a brazen mug of masala tea ($2.95) to the seductive siren song of the fish madras ($16.95) guiding lost palates toward a pool of coconut curry sauce. In addition to meaty temptations, Bombay Palace serves up a number of vegetarian dishes, such as creamy saag paneer ($10.95), chopped spinach with cheese, or tangy Bombay aloo ($9.95), fresh potatoes marinated in a fenugreek-infused tomato sauce. The diverse wine list initiates Dionysian revelry and heartfelt discussions of about the legality of trying opossums in kangaroo court.
Plush red carpeting, colorful stained-glass lamps, and artwork inspired by the subcontinent lend a calming and elegant air to Bombay Palace's dining room. Inside the kitchen, however, things are a bit more vibrant as Executive Chef Sanjiv Malhotra and his skilled crew work hard to create and plate Indian culinary traditions. Chef Malhotra takes pride in his signature dish of king prawns bathed in a saffron sauce, but he also nimbly whips up regional specialties such as saag paneer from the eastern side of the country and spicy vindaloos from Goa. In an effort to satisfy any diet, his menu also includes a handful of vegan dishes built from potatoes, cauliflower, or eggplants, and he takes care to indicate which entrees are gluten-free or contain nuts.
