BEST Indian Food in the Philippines: New Bombay Authentic Indian Cuisine

I love discovering new places that I can easily categorize in my “BEST OF” lists. This week, I just discovered the BEST authentic Indian food in Manila!

My friends and I seriously stuffed our faces more than we thought possible. The yumminess was just too yummy to leave any leftovers. You definitely need to check out the Indian restaurant called “New Bombay!”

If I had to recommend just one dish from New Bombay…. well…. I couldn’t…. it’d be impossible for me to name just one. However, if I really, really, really had to pick just one authentic Indian dish from New Bombay, then I would pick two! Do try the cheesy Chicken curry called the “Chicken Malay Masala” and the Lamb stew called the “Mutton Masala.”

Anyway, when you want to give your tastebuds a different sensation, be sure to try the Indian flavor.

Welcome to New Bombay, the Philippines’ premier restaurant for real Indian cooking – best defined as absolutely authentic Indian cuisine in the Philippines.

For starters (pardon the pun), the chefs in its five branches are Indian nationals and well-trained Filipinos who can cook up cuisine in the best Indian tradition fit for a Rajah.

The interiors are in true Indian fashion. Ceilings and walls are adorned with portraits of beautiful Indian women, opulent curtains and hanging fabrics in a palette of rich colors, carved seats and tables.

There’s the attractive silverware, too (resist the temptation to take them home). Traditional Indian music softly playing in the background completes the diner’s journey into the land of the maharajahs.

Here’s a sneek peek into New Bombay Restaurant’s menu of traditional classic Indian favorites which you can order light, medium, or really hot. The ubiquitous Indian samosas for snacks, egg biryani, pappadum, Chicken Tikka Masala (medium spicy chicken), chicken sheikh kebab (yummy ground chicken), roti and naan, and kulfe (Indian ice cream).

Beverages include hot Indian tea, lassi (yoghurt drink), and soft drinks:
