Bombay Street Kitchen is street food of India and they are licensed and BYO (wine only). They have been open for only a few months and have both inside and outside seating for 60. Mlady started her lovely meal with an Oyster Bay 2013 Merlot and Sir chose an Indian beer - Kingfisher Lager.

We started with the Pav Bhaji which originated in the 1850's as a fast lunchtime dish for textile mill workers in Bombay. It is now a Mambaian institution and eaten all over India. It's lightly spiced mashed veggies served with a warm buttered bun. We both thoroughly enjoyed this very tasty dish and used the soft bun as a scoop to get to the very yummy veggies. We spread the veggies on the bun and garnished it with the side of onion and chives. A flavoursome dish with bite.

Pani Poori - what a novel and fun dish! This is crispy lentil pockets stuffed with potatoes, chickpeas, spices, tamarind chutney and serving of mint chutney and tamarind water. What you do is - fill the bun with the juice and "down the hatch". We both loved this. It had a good crunch, was so fresh and it also had a good bite to it.

The Marsala fish fry is tender pieces of mackerel marinated in lime juice, coriander and fresh coconut, fried and served with a wedge of lemon. OMG this dish was amazing. So, there were a few bones - what good fish does not have a few bones. The fish was crispy and so fresh and Mlady even sucked the crispy bits off the bones - that's how much she enjoyed it.

We had a serving of Naan which was freshly cooked and buttered and this was presented in a silver bucket. The tasty Naan was used to soak up the various sauces with the dishes that we had.

Instead of having Basmati rice that we usually have  we opted for the Lemon Rice This was such a tasty change. it was made up with lentils, lemon and spices. It was presented in a black bowl emphasising it's vibrant colour. The rice was so good you could eat it by itself!

Next we had the Chicken Chennai which is also known as Madras Chicken. The chicken is simmered in a coconut based sauce and garnished with curry leaves. Oh WOW! Great flavours! What a great kick to this dish! It went so very well with the great lemon rice.

Then we had the Lasni Kalambi which is prawns sizzled in garlic, coriander and tomato sauce. Again another great tasting dish with wonderful flavours. The prawns were large, plump and very juicy. we used the tasty Naan to soak up the delicious sauce.

For dessert Mlady did not choose her usual "anything that's chocolate" but decided to go with the Mango Kulfi. The homemade mango ice cream, almond and cardamon crumble was so fresh. OMG this was an amazing dessert - which you really must try!

Sir chose the Lapshee which is cracked wheat caramelised with jaggery and fennel served with smoked yogurt and almond. When we saw the "smoked yogurt" in it's description this aroused our curiosity. This dessert was different and very tasty and another "must try".

Bombay Street Kitchen is a real gem. The food is authentic, fresh, fun and very tasty. Eat here - you'll love it!

Sir and Mlady dined as guests of Bombay Street Kitchen and would like to say a big Thank you to Chef Rajoo for taking time out and chatting with us about his impressive background and philosophy on food. Also a big thank you to Manasi for taking care of us on the night.
