Shalom Bombay Teaneck to close

Thanks a Glatt! has learned that Shalom Bombay in Teaneck has been sold and will be re-opening under another name and probably without hechsher.  We are sad to see them go but wish them more luck on their NYC locations! Official press release below.

June 23, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

We at Shalom Bombay of Teaneck would like to take the opportunity to thank the many loyal patrons in Bergen County and its surrounding areas. It has been our pleasure to serve you for the last 2 1/2 years. The enthusiasm about our first location has also led to the great success of our second location, opened almost 1 year ago in Manhattan.

At this time, we have chosen to accept a buyout offer. The former proprietor of our location expressed an interest in reacquiring it and we felt that it was the most prudent path for us to take. He will be operating the Teaneck restaurant under a different name, not associated with Shalom Bombay or the RCBC.

We will now have the opportunity to focus on the Manhattan location and help it on its continued path of growth and popularity. We will also be focusing our efforts on expanding our catering business (weddings, Kiddushes, dinner events, Bar-Mitzvahs) with our unique but versatile cuisine options.

The people of North Jersey are quite discerning foodies with an array of local Kosher options. Shalom Bombay Manhattan will still be that appealing destination for special times spent in the city as well as for the many professionals who work and do business in Manhattan and like to enjoy mouthwatering Indian food for a great value lunch.

Any outstanding coupons and gift certificates will be honored at the Manhattan location. The last day of operations as Shalom Bombay of Teaneck will be Sunday, June 26, 2011.

We look forward to continuing to serve you and cater to all your needs.

Shalom Bombay: The Review

Rating (out of 5):

There was a storm a few weeks ago that shut down all the LIRR lines – so what better way to spend the night stuck in NYC than to check out New York City’s newest Glatt Kosher Indian restaurant, Shalom Bombay under the hechsher of the Orthodox Union.  With much success in Teaneck they decided to try their chances in the more prestigious Manhattan market – and we think they are going to make it.

Dakshin II – The Review (hey, that rhymed!)

Rating (out of 5):

QUICK REVIEW: I was up at 57th and Lexington today when I realized I was hungry and it was time for lunch.  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like there is much to eat in this area (can someone please open up a pizzeria).  Fortunately for me however – I am the editor of the #1 online Kosher restaurant blog so finding somewhere was not that big an issue.  The smart people we were, in the 95+ degree weather we decided to take our wallets to the kosher offerings of Dakshin II’s Indian Buffet.   There is nothing more refreshing than spicy food on a hot August day (insert sarcasm mark here).  Being on 1st avenue is a bit out of the way for most of the people who work in this area, so I will assume they have a better crowd for dinner.

The Buffet

When you walk in the first thing you see is the buffet table stocked full of, yep, you guessed it – Indian cuisine.  The decor is typical for an Indian Buffet.  Hopefully Shalom Bombay will make their place nicer (if they ever open).  The lunch buffet is $9.95 and they do not take credit cards for orders under $25.   Quick thought before I forget: they didn’t have extra plates when I went back for seconds or thirds (isn’t this a buffet rule?) or even fourths.

Sauces

If you love sauces like me, you will appreciate the ones they had.  Although the presentation could be better their selection was good.  The yogurt sauce with naan was so good I couldn’t believe it was parve.  For the main course, the chicken masala and baghare baingan were my favorite.  Spiced just right they went great when scooped up with some naan.  Unfortunately all of the pictures I took of the main dishes came out bad, I will have to go back and take a pic of them for you guys another time.  A few more pics though for your enjoyment and consideration.

Rice and Chicken Tandoori

The chicken looked REALLY spicy (it wasn’t).  Still good however.

Fruit Salad

Wikipedia defines a salad as having a mixture of fruits.  While this one only contained cantaloupe I will take their word for it that it was in fact a salad.

Overall it was ok,  if you are in the mood for Glatt Kosher Indian food and are in the area then you should definitely check them out.

Shalom Bombay to open a location in Murray Hill

We just received word from David Gruber, a partner from Shalom Bombay in Teaneck that they will be opening their first New York City location at 39th and Lexington on Sunday, April 11th.  This news coming a week after Dakshin II was titled as being the only Kosher Indian restaurant in NYC! Sorry that their reign did not last long however we here at Thanks a Glatt! love competition!

Shalom Bombay’s NYC location will feature a more upscale ambiance than their Teaneck counterpart.  Their menu will remain predominately the same however they will have more lunch and take-out specials (available to order via Seamless Web as well).  They will also be open on Fridays and will be under the Orthodox Union hechsher.

This might be my new favorite place to order from since I work semi-close to the neighborhood!

The best news though is that David mentioned that the first 50 people to email shalombombay@yahoo.com will be invited to an exclusive free tasting on April 8th!

Dakshin II now Glatt Kosher

The word on the street is (and their website states it) that Dakshin is now OK Kosher as of the weekend!  It hails itself as the first and ONLY Glatt Kosher Indian food in New York City!

Make sure you go to this location only because their other location is not certified!
