Seriously good Indian fare at this family-run restaurant because everything is homemade and authentic.
Manasi and her parents, Rajoo and Shaloo who both have worked in hospitality for well over two decades each, want to offer real Indian street food to the Sydney masses. This is food containing heart and soul and I so highly recommend you try authentic Indian cuisine from here.
It’s great to taste real mango in the lassi, it’s just the right amount of sweetness and a little tart.
Pani poori are crispy bite-sized lentil pockets that are light and airy, they come already filled with spiced chickpeas, potatoes and plenty of coriander. You eat these first by filling them with a mint chutney and tamarind water and popping the entirety of it into your mouth. It’s incredibly fun finger food and the flavours so fresh.
Whole prawns are battered and deep fried, they’re fantastically crispy, spicy and plump. Really enjoyable.
A side of fragrant coconut rice, dotted with peppery mustard seeds, it may well be my favourite way of having rice as it’s so flavourful, yet simple.
The smokiness of the creamy soft eggplant paired with the tomato sauce is lovely.
Authentic garlic naan with crispy, burnished bits from cooking in a tandoori oven.
Succulent chicken pieces simmered in a coconut-based sauce, there’s always plenty of sauce with the mains and this is especially good mopped up along with some house-baked naan or rice.
Lamb saagwala are meltingly soft lamb pieces coated in a perfectly spiced ginger sauce, its emerald hue is from lots and lots of pureed spinach. It’s ultra comfort food and feels very nice and warm in your belly.
Like all the dishes, the butter chicken uses complex spices, attributing to its heavenly aroma, authenticity and deliciousness.
Lapshee is quite a savoury, fennel dessert made with steamed wheat grains, the consistency is of a sponge cake or pudding and this was my first time trying it. Served along with some interesting smoked yoghurt and cherries.
Do not pass up some Gulab Jamun, they are deep fried balls of milk powder and yoghurt, soaked in a rosewater and spices syrup.
Pistachio kulfi is cool, creamy, refreshing and sweet, the crushed walnut and pistachios lending nuttiness throughout.
I was fortunate enough to sample a large variety of dishes in smaller servings so as to try more. I really enjoyed all the dishes and can absolutely say I would revisit Bombay Street Kitchen as they make authentic Indian cuisine so enjoyable.
