Indian cravings satisfied in Uptown Markham. If you’re looking for an authentic place to grab Indian food, you will not be disappointed with Bombay Bhel. I’ve seen many people on Yelp and Urbanspoon rave about the food, and it was the perfect opportunity to check out the place. As soon as you walk in, you can see that the dimly lit interior was decorated very traditionally.
To start off, we ordered the Brie Pakora ($7), brie fritters in a fried chick pea batter. The combination of fried brie cheese and the dipping sauce (which I could literally drink) made a delicious appetizer. Unfortunately, the cheese was not as melted as I would have liked, and the chick pea taste was not as strong. I would consider ordering the Samosas the next time around.
For our mains, I had the Chicken Tikka Masala ($14.99), served with Naan. For those unfamiliar with Tikka Masala, it is chicken simmered with spices, onions & creamy tomato gravy accented with green peppers. The dish had great flavor, tender chicken, and I particularly enjoyed the fresh naan.
Jessica had the Haryali Tikka ($15.99), boneless cubes of white chicken meat marinated with yogurt and mint grilled in the tandoor, served with salad. The chicken had just the right amount of spice, and came with a refreshing spicy mint dipping sauce.
Overall, the service was also very smooth, the food came out at a reasonable time. I was happy with my first experience here. Situated in the same plaza as the infamous Go For Tea on Highway 7 and Leslie, Bombay Bhel serves up very tasty dishes at reasonable prices.
