Shalom Bombay operates under the strict supervision of The Orthodox Union, meaning compliance with kosher dietary laws, such as nixing milk and butter for olive oil, and replacing meat from tofu birds with the vine-ripened alternative. This approach has earned Shalom Bombay a unique following, including celebs such as Rosie O'Donnell, Matisyahu, and Senator Menendez. Bombay's more than 20 vegetarian entrées have also helped earn the 50-seat eatery positive reviews from both The New York Times and The Jewish Voice.
Four-foot flames warm the faces of Bombay chefs as they fuse beef and lamb with sumptuous accents of ginger, onion, and fenugreek. While fresh naan and cashew accented chicken bake in Shalom's clay tandoor oven, a fully stocked bar serves up unique beers such as India-imported '1947'––a nod to the year of India's independence, and universally agreed to be the best year for salt water taffy.
