As you step into this enchanting space, you are greeted by opulent gold accents, plush red seats, and a meticulously set table, reminiscent of the classic French dining experience. However, what sets Bombay Brasserie apart is its infusion of Indian elements – from stylish green lamps to murals depicting scenes of Mumbai, adding a touch of tropical allure.

My friend and I had the pleasure of indulging in a delightful dinner at Bombay Brasserie recently. The restaurant is helmed by Chef Nilesh Ambedkar’s expertly curated menu beautifully intertwines traditional Indian and French culinary delights.

Bombay Brasserie-Pana Puri

Our evening began with a complimentary plate of papad, breads, chutney, and French butter, followed by an exquisite serving of pana puri.

Bombay Brasserie-Aloo Papdi Chaat

Starting with the Aloo Papdi Chaat, a refreshing combination of potatoes, yogurt, tamarind, and crispies, we were immediately impressed by the crunchy textures and vibrant flavors.

Bombay Brasserie-Seekh Kebab

The Seekh Kebab, made with goat’s meat and served with pickled vegetables and mint chutney, pleasantly surprised my friend. She isn’t typically a fan of goat meat but found the dish flavorful and not at all gamey.

Bombay Brasserie- duck confit

Next, we had the Duck Confit Phulka Roll. As you take your first bite, the succulent duck confit enveloped in a soft and fluffy phulka unleashes a symphony of rich, savory notes.

Bombay Brasserie- Scallop

Moving on to mains, the Grilled Scallops with pea mousseline showcased the restaurant’s innovative approach to classic French cuisine, offering a delightful fusion of flavors.

Our Butter Chicken served with barista pulao and laccha paratha, presented a unique twist on the traditional dish. This dish offers a slightly sweeter flavor profile that appealed to our palates. The laccha paratha proved to be a perfect accompaniment to the rich and creamy butter chicken.

No dining experience at Bombay Brasserie would be complete without sampling their selection of creative cocktails, inspired by the colonial era. From the sophisticated allure of “The Cantonment” to the refreshing flavors of the “Colonial Favourite,” each drink was expertly crafted to complement the bold flavors of the cuisine.

In conclusion, our experience at Bombay Brasserie was nothing short of exceptional. From the memorable starters to the innovative mains and impeccable service, every aspect of our dining experience surpassed our expectations. We’re already planning our next visit to explore more of the menu and indulge in the culinary delights that Bombay Brasserie has to offer.

The dumplings are filled with a nutty filling and topped with flavorful thick yogurt and chutneys for a delightful combination of textures and tastes.

Tiffin Room Raffles Singapore-Achari Murgh Tikka Kathi Roll

The culinary journey continues with Achari Murgh Tikka Kathi Roll – a pickled spicy tandoori-grilled chicken wrap with beetroot, radish, and onion salad before moving on to the mains. Personally, I enjoyed the impeccable balance of flavors and textures achieved with the thoughtfully chosen ingredients in this dish.

Transitioning to the main course, elegantly presented in their signature dabba, and served in gleaming copper tiers. We delighted in the Tawa Masala Fish – a pan-seared black cod infused with a special blend of spices, onion, and tomato masala. This dish is not only satisfying and nutritious but also bursts with authentic Indian flavors. The chef’s selection of fish for this year’s menu is truly commendable.

Pahadi Gosht offers a Himalayan-style lamb chop curry with fresh herbs and spices. The lamb emerges incredibly tender, while the curry exudes a delightful earthy flavor derived from the bones.

Accompany these delights with Shahi Dal – yellow lentil curry with black beans and red kidney beans. The velvety, creamy texture of the lentil’s pairs exceptionally well with naan.

Tiffin Room Raffles Singapore- Tomato Mint Pulao

Next, we have the Tomato Mint Pulao – Fragrant and tasty Indian basmati rice with fresh tomato, mint, and cardamom. This rice serves as an excellent accompaniment to all the rich gravies, making it the perfect carbohydrate addition for the evening.

The meal concludes on a sweet note with the delectable trio of desserts: Makai Halwa, Gujia, and Gur Para – sweet corn halwa, traditional sweet dumplings stuffed with coconut and dried fruits, and jaggery bites, respectively. While the sweetness might be on the intense side for my taste, it is characteristic of the typical sweetness found in Indian desserts.
