Tucked away at the quieter end of Scarborough Street in Southport, Bombay Affair offers authentic Indian cuisine prepared with passion every time by Bombay-born Heena Serai, who describes her flavoursome cooking as a s’tress buster’. Each dish is made from scratch with spices imported from India, so you know those crisp dosas stuffed with butter chicken will be crunchy, tender and complete with a flavour punch! There are no pre-mixes in this kitchen and the team pride themselves on creating home style, authentic tastes from their country of birth. If you’re keen for an Indian tapas experience to share with friends, try the vadapav – an Indian-style burger, or the idli sambhar – rice and lentil softcakes with coconut chutney. Other menu highlights include the vegetarian paneer tikka, the authentic chicken tikka (think spicy and full flavoured, not the blander Australian version, which is creamy and sweet) and every variety of dosa (Indian pancake) imaginable. Bombay Affair offers BYO with free corkage, so you can enjoy your Indian feast paired with a your favourite wine – you can even catch a ride home on the ‘curry bus’.
