First review
 
Some like it hot! Bombay Sizzlers is a casual Indian restaurant on the first floor of a primarily residential complex in Las Colinas. There is another location in Addison, and a third restaurant is opening soon in Irving. The food here is traditional Indian cuisine, but there are also Indian-Chinese fusion dishes. Bombay has a daily lunch buffet as well as dinner service. There also is an evening happy hour most nights and a DJ on Saturday nights.

Noise levels were low on a Saturday evening around 6:00pm, but the customer count was light too. The customer mix was 99% Indian. Bombay had a stylish contemporary feel, highlighted by large beautiful pictures of Indian scenery and slightly diminished by several flat screen TVs with nonstop Bollywood dancing and entertainment shows. The restaurant was clean except for a spot of dried sauce on the menu, which was gross but not gross enough to skip dinner.

Spice is king at Bombay Sizzlers, so this was a night to either go bold or to go home. The hot and sour soup had a light broth and included carrots and scallions. It was hot both with a spicy taste and in temperature. The small portion was appetizing and would get an 8 rank on a 1-10 scale. Onion naan bread was soft and somewhat bland, but was still filling. A veggie pakoda appetizer was too crispy and a bit overcooked to be enjoyable. Also, it was sprinkled with these annoying green parsley things (as was the soup and the main course). The mint dipping sauce though was zesty and positively mouthwatering. A veggie red chilly entrée included panner and is normally served dry, but the server suggested including both chili gravy and a side dish of rice. While the spice dominated the taste, the dish was overly soupy and lacked much distinctiveness. A small portion of mango ice cream for dessert was enjoyable. It was standard ice cream but had a sweet mango taste. The menu is fairly large, and Bombay is probably best visited with someone who knows the dishes well and can provide suggestions. The server was polite but not very insightful about the food. Bombay could be worth a return visit to try out some of the Indian-Chinese options, but on this visit it was about average.
