Scouting for a place to enjoy some good Indian food and good ambience? Bombay Palace definitely screams ‘atas’ Indian restaurant. They do not have an extensive menu like the above mentions, but they do serve a mixture of meat and vegetarian delight. Decorated with beautiful lights and antique furniture, this posh eatery is certainly on the pricer side than normal Indian cuisines but we would say it’s pretty reasonable for such an upscale restaurant.

With their rising popularity among foodies, this place is certainly loved by many for their tasty food. The decor might be simple but its comfortable settings and long wooden tables are prime for gatherings and celebrations. Their briyani is definitely a must-try when you’re here or you could opt for their aromatic curries too! Quantity might be an issue here if you’re a big eater but if FLOUR were to choose quantity or quality, we are glad they chose the latter. Bear in mind that they can get too crowded sometimes so it’s advisable to make a reservation earlier.

Adding another authentic Indian Restaurant to the list – D’Tandoor has been here for a long time. Patrons usually go for their sizzling chicken tandoori.
