Bombay Masala

Has anyone been to Bombay Masala in Greenbelt on Rte. 193? I've never had Indian food yet and thought I'd try it out for lunch today.

Here's the website:

    Yes, I've eaten there. They have a lunch buffet, which is decent, but it's missing the butter chicken. In the past, they've offered indian/chinese food. I've seen their chef use a wok, which is not common for indian joints.

    There's also a peruvian chicken place that opened in the Cipriani Square not long ago which I have not tried, but I've eaten at the korean owned sushi joint, osaka, and it's not bad. They have a sushi happy hour. Five guys is coming soon.

      I'm looking at their menu right now. I will probably either get the mixed grill platter or the lamb palak. Both of those sound really good.

      The Rioo Chicken Deli is also in that plaza. Is that place any good?

        Mmmm, lunch from Bombay Masala was delicious! I ended up getting the mixed grill platter and an order of the chicken drumsticks. I liked most of the things in the mixed grilled platter but the tandoori chicken was rather dry. The Raita sauce that I got came in nicely for the dry tandoori chicken. It's the Indian version of the Greek Tzatiki sauce which I love.

        There's a Carribean place in the same strip. It's called Karribean Sweets or something like that. Has anyone been there?

          Did the buffet table appeal to you at all?

            I saw it there but it didn't seem to be much of a selection.

              Yeah...based on my experience if the tandoori chickin is dry, it's likely that it was reheated. Freshly grilled tandoori chicken is typically moist, like most chicken that's grilled.

        The chicken place is nothing special. Thread:
