Time Out says
Having moved just down the road on Wyndham Street, the new revamped Bombay Dreams has opened with a brand new menu as well as a whiskey cabinet with 48 fine and rare whiskies and complementing cocktails. Bombay Dreams has been something of an institution in terms of Indian food and has garnered fans across the city since it opened 18 years ago in 2002. Now, the new menu will be filled with new creations from chef Irshad Ahmed Qureshi, the seventh generation of family chefs and head of the kitchen to serve the Nawabs and royal family since the Mogul empire.
The spacious new location will seat up to 80 guests with a private dining room too. Inside the rather dreamy main dining room, large French windows allow plenty of natural light in and the interior is designed to reflect a contemporary Indian palace filled with colour. Brass and bronze elements run throughout the decor with suspended pendant lights above. The dining room reveals an open kitchen – where two rustic tailor-made tandoor ovens are showcased – and is fitted out with a plush built-in purple banquette seating with marble tables for more intimate meals.
The new menu is extensive and varied with highlights including crispy Bombay chilgoza prawns marinated with ginger, garlic, coriander and pine nuts; tawa salmon marinated with garam masala, cumin, ginger and garlic; guchchi matar which has morels slow-cooked with green peas, onions, tomatoes and garlic; lukhnowi gosht biryani with lamb and rice sealed with wet dough and steamed; and much, much more.
