What people say about our food
I stopped by Bombay Spice on a whim after work. After a long day, I was in the mood for something different from my typical Italian taste. The restaurant has a casual atmosphere with basic furnishings and a large showcase of pastries up front by the register.
I have to give tons of credit to the staff for a friendly and welcoming demeanor. I openly admitted I had no idea what anything was and asked about the Punjabi Platter – the search ended right there. A choice of lentil, veggie, rice and naan all served together for just $7! I’m pretty sure I had a choice of how to prepare the lentils and of what vegetables, but since I had no clue the girl chose for me.
Overall the food was excellent. There was enough for a hearty meal with PLENTY of leftovers. The yellow lentils were rich with a fresh curry taste. The veggie was a sweet red sauce (I’m guessing butter masala) with paneer (cubes of cheese). The rice was perfectly cooked and per the usual I was obsessed with naan.
I just love this place. When I am in the area, I always call to place a take out order. I am very partial to their aloo papri chat. So good and the portions are incredibly generous. The kati rolls are great too. Food is so authentic and delicious that it’s practically like my grandmother herself made these dishes. Prices are great.
I’ve been to a party where this place catered and it was delicious. Usually, catered Indian food is not great. This place is the exception. The place is very casual, no frills.
For years we mostly ate Indian Food at a restaurant in Kenilworth. Once in a while we would try someplace else, but the food would never compare. Recently we started in earnest looking for another place to go. I’ve been passing Bombay Spice 2 for years, and always meant to stop in to try it. This week I happened to be going by near lunch time, so I turned in. It’s easy to pass by because the building in below street level. I doubt I will pass it by again.
One of our favorite foods is Samosa, so of course we got an order of 2. I love chole, so I ordered the Chole Bhature chat. When we got home and started to eat, I wished I had my own Samosa, I only tasted a bite of one so my husband could have them both. It was the very best Samosa I ever ate. The chole was fantastic. It was seasoned boldly, it was hearty and very satisfying. I was surprised to see it came with thinly sliced sweet onion, Indian pickles and two pieces of a type of Indian bread..
When I first came in… Ill admit.. I was a little startled. There was so much rush and it looked unsanitary and unorganized (probably because I’m a neat freak). I ordered “Vada pav”. ” And it took 5 minutes to get here. Upon seeing the food, I was immediately tempted and took a bite. After taking a but u decided…. BEST VADA PAV EVER. If ur ever in Edison u HAVE to eat here… At least the Vada pav..
Awesome home-style food for cheap price!! Their Punjabi platter and sugarcane juice is my hubby’s all-time favourite we highly recommend this place.
