Salaam Bombay - Tribeca Ratings and Reviews
I was really looking forward to a delicious indian meal for dinner. Walked through the door and mentioned the 6.30pm opentable reservation for 3 to the host. In an unfriendly manner he dismissed the fact that we had a reservation stating he had not received any calls from Opentable. We were nevertheless were seated, as the whole restaurant was empty apart from a couple nearby.
We ordered two appetizers, Samosas (which are my absolute favourite) and Khaman Dhokla. Both dishes were not freshly made, the samosa pastry was tasteless and thick and the Dhokla was heavy and stale. Neither appetizer came with any chutney or tamarind sauce.
The mains came at least 15min after appetizers so assume some fresh cooking took place. We ordered khadai paneer (ok but very oily and Chicken Shahi Korma (mild but hardly any flavour). Roti was also thick and hard.
Overall a very poor representation of authentic indian cuisine, will not be returning.
Food is a bit expensive, but considering the neighborhood ... well, that is kinda expected. Not so many people in the restaurant, we were one of the two tables with people coming in occasionally for takeouts. But food was good. They have a lot of authentic Indian appetizers that other Indian restaurants tend to lack. The grills are tender, juicy, and very flavorful. Try it when you have the time and money!
We enjoyed are dinner very much
.we arrived early and were treated very well. The food was delicious and well priced .we all had fantastic mixed drinks that added to the meal. The restaurant is pretty but it is starting to get shabby it need some freshing up.
We have been ordering in or sometimes eating here for several years. This was our go-to neighborhood take out choice. The Tandoori lamb chops have never been missed and usually not the prawns. Something has happened. The once perfectly cooked and tender, wonderfully seasoned lamb chops have left the scene. The other night we ate in the restaurant and found they were tough, poor quality meat, barely worth eating chops. I hope this is not a harbinger of the future of Salaam Bombay. Because of our history we will probably give it one more try but were extremely disappointed.
I've been eating at Salaam Bombay every time I'm in New York since the mid-80's, and this is one place that never disappoints. Tasty Indian food, decent prices and a pleasant staff add up to a great dining experience. They have a marvelous way with a shrimp, and anything from the tandoori oven is worth the trek to Tribeca. But truly, give me a bowl of one of their divine sauces and a whole basket of garlic naan and I'm good to go. These guys end up of every top ten Indian restaurants in New York list every time, and with good reason. Highly recommended!
overall this experience was just middle of the road. the samosa chaat appetizer was the best thing we had. the chicken tikka masala and the lamb rogan josh were decent, but frankly i've had much better in Texas. i would not dine here again given the multitude of other indian options in manhattan.
In the webpage you can make a reservation until 10.30 pm; once there the waitress told us the kitchen close at 11.00 pm and we have to order and eat in a real hurry and they gave us the check even before asking us if we wanted dessert!. In addition, don´t go to this restaurant if you want great atmosphere for a saturday night at Tribeca neighbourhood: we were alone at the saloon.
