When it comes to fine Indian dining, Bombay Dreams has been an institution for more than a decade. Bombay Dreams has been in the forefront of Indian restaurants in Hong Kong for a long time and continues to do so. You will barely find an Indian food lover in Hong Kong who has not heard of Bombay Dreams. It serves authentic Indian fare with a fine dining environment which focuses on a relaxing experience, specially for families.
Recently shifted and renovated, Bombay Dreams offers a swanky new environment with wall to wall windows offering the bustling street view of Central from the 4th floor. The decor is modern chic and you can see the chefs working hard in the see-thru kitchen. The 2 tandoors in the kitchen are done up to look like shiny disco balls, making the chef look like a DJ, spinning some…roomali roti’s! The menu is designed by Indian Master Chef I.R. Qureshi and features many quintessential Indian dishes but also features some of the more contemporary variety.
Lunch Buffet – Monday – Saturday, 12pm-3pm.
The best way to sample a variety of Indian dishes at Bombay Dreams is to have their lunch buffet. With a myriad of starters and mains available, you must make sure to skip breakfast on the day you decide to eat here. For HK$ 128+10% service charge, you cannot go wrong for an Indian lunch buffet in Central.
Starting off with some Indian street fare appetizers like Gol Gappe, and Bombay Chat. A must try is the Palak Patta Chat, which is spinach dipped in gram flour paste and fried, served with sweet chutney and yogurt. These appetizers are served at the table and taste fresh. Also served is the classic South Indian treat, Dosa, But this dosa comes with a welted curried spinach filling rather than the usual curried potatoes. The buffet spread includes more appetizers like Rasam, Medu Vada, Murgh Tikka Methi Malai (chicken tikka), Lamb boti kebab, 6 different kinds of salads and raita (yogurt relish).
There are no fixed Main’s in the menu as they are made fresh every day and change quite often depending on the availability of the ingredients. This is a really good sign, as you know that no matter what is served, it will be top quality.
However, some of the dishes are mostly available, like Dal Bombay, Paneer kachi mirch hara Pyaaz (Paneer with black pepper and spring onions), Chatpati Gobhi (tangy cauliflower), Andhra Fish Curry, Tawa Murgh (chicken cooked on a pan with sour onions).
For deserts there are fresh cut fruits and 3 types of deserts like rasmalai, gulab jamun etc. Remember these dishes change frequently.
Bombay Dreams is a great place to go out with your colleagues for weekday lunches or with family on a Saturday or a Sunday (they have a Sunday Brunch with sparkling wine as well). Make sure you have plenty of time to ‘walk the food off’ or a bed nearby as the compulsory food coma will kick in very quickly after the buffet.
Buffet lunch, 12.00 Noon – 3.00 PM and a la carte dinner 6.00 PM to 11.00 PM daily & Sunday Bubbly Brunch Buffet 12.00 Noon to 3.00 PM
