Bombay House in Provo, Utah

Also, located in Sugar House in Salt Lake...


Ah Bombay House, such a good ol' favorite.
Apparently in India they make their food very, extremely, spicy-hot, so if that's your experience and didn't like it, give it another shot here at the Bombay House. 
Just be sure to order your food mild or medium. 

We're medium folks.

Vegetable Pakora: seasoned mixed vegetables
mixed with chickpea flour and deep fried
Pakora is one of our favorite Indian dishes.

Strawberry Lassi: refreshing yogurt drink
blended with strawberries and homemade yogurt

I just about drank this entire, tangy, strawberry lassi in one big sip.
Have you tried lassi? 
Try the mango or strawberry lassi on your next visit to Bombay House.

Paneer Masala: homemade cheese cooked with bell pepper, onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, cream and spices
This was my first experience eating paneer. 
It's cheese, so of course it was good.

Lamb Coconut Kurma: boneless lamb cooked with coconut milk, onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, cashew nuts, golden raisins and spices
The flavors and spices used in Indian food is a beautiful thing.

Garlic Naan: teardrop-shaped white bread baked in tandoor (clay oven) with a touch of garlic
Naan is basically a must-order when eating here. Can't go waisting the leftover sauce on your plate! Clean it up with our favorite, the Garlic Naan.

Cucumber Raita: a tangy mixture of cucumber, tomatoes, onions and spices
mixed with fresh homemade yogurt
An accompaniment to we-don't-know-what, but it was delicious to dip our naan in and to cool our spicy-hot mouths.

Peshawari Naan: Indian bread stuffed with a mix of coconut, raisins and cashews,
and baked in tandoor (clay oven)
This Peshawari Naan was a new one for us. A new crave! The mixture of ground up bits of coconut, raisins, and cashews was sweet & nutty. Loved it.
It actually took care of my sweet tooth (along with the lassi), and good thing too, because I was stuffed! I always want to order dessert here, but I'm always too full. I've heard good things about Indian Mango ice cream, so one of these days....

Family friendly. $10-15 per entree. A well-run business is how I feel about Bombay House.

  1. We LOVE the Bombay House and have been going for so long that we feel like Norm from Cheers whenever we go. (If you get that reference, you must be as old as I am:) ) And we always get Bombay House takeout on Valentine's Day :)

  2. You really need to check out the Tin Roof Grill in Sandy. (I know it isn't Utah County!) I think you would really enjoy it and I would be interested to hear your take. Also, there is a new Grilled cheese place that will be opening soon in Midvale that sounds cool.

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog so I could find your fun foodie blog. I am ALWAYS up for new and good places to eat out. Beautiful beautiful pictures too!
