Bombay Tadka’s two seasoned chefs merge their distinctive expertise in Mughlai, Indochinese, and South Indian cooking styles to forge a multifarious menu that escorts taste buds through India’s diversely flavorful culinary regions. Mount Mumbai expeditions with a selection of savory chaat (traditional street food) such as the vada pav ($4.95), which bundles a spicy potato patty in soft bread to create India’s answer to the hamburger, which came in retaliation after America’s hokey-pokey answer to Bollywood dance. South Indian seasoning suffuses a range of crêpe-like dosa ($4.95–$10.95), stuffed with herbed potatoes and a range of fillings, and Mughlai dishes treat diners to more familiar Indian fare, such as the chicken tikka masala ($10.95) swimming in a smooth tomato-cream sauce.
Complementing its eclectic menu, the restaurant’s scarlet-hued walls display authentic images ranging from antique illustrations of Indian architecture to full-color posters of the country’s popular music and movie stars. Beneath glowing orange lamps, chocolate and gold booths edge individual windows as draped burgundy curtains steal secretive whiffs of diners’ meals.
