A restaurant that combines an array of tantalising Indian food with a truly magnificent standard of service, Babu Bombay Street Food is the place to be for those in need of good food, and who want to give something back too.
Found on West Regent Street in Glasgow, the vibrant little eatery offers a warm welcome to all, who can enter in the knowledge that when they feed themselves, they will be feeding a child in India too, thanks to their ties with the charity foundation known as the Akshaya Patra Foundation.
Not only this, but the restaurant also accepts the tastecard, meaning that members are able to partake in a great value meal when they call in advance and produce their card upon request of the bill, all in the knowledge that they are doing good at the same time.
Focussing primarily on Indian street food, Babu Bombay is the ideal destination for the particularly sociable eating parties. A spicy chicken kebab, a tamarind and green chilli chutney accompanied potato vadas, and a bhel puri that incorporates puffed rice flakes, crispy lentil vermicelli and a chaat masala make up just three of the flavoursome small plates on show, while there is also plenty available that provide a little more indulgence.
When it comes to the larger plates, there are a host of options to be sampled that promise satisfy. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the chick pea based Punjabi chana masala, served in a tangy tomato and mango sauce, the keema matar, lamb mince in a spicy garam masala sauce, and the cauliflower, pea, green pepper and tottie infused pau bhaji.
Be it for a casual repast with the significant other or a catch up with a close friend, all are sure to have a good time at Babu Bombay.
