Bombay Central, Chippendale

Central Park is fast becoming a hub for shopping and as a convenient place to meet people for a quick and casual lunch. One stall in Central Park’s extensive food court is Bombay Central.

They sell a wide variety of Indian curries that make for a very enticing food display. The prices are equally as enticing, with two curries and rice going for just $10.

Double Meal with Soft Drink and Naan $13

The $10 Double meal was what I opted for with an added 200ml soft drink and plain naan. I also have a habit of crushing my pappadum over my curry and rice which gives the dish, in my opinion, more texture.

Aloo Baigan (Eggplant and Potato Curry) and Vege Korma

I can’t say I was too impressed with the curry and rice of the dish. I found the Aloo Baigan to be a bit too oily and tasteless for my liking. The Vege Korma lacked the creaminess I was expecting from a korma and was a bit cold. The rice was too dry. I have to question the freshness of the food, despite us visiting at peak lunch hour.

If you’re looking for tasty, authentic Indian food, Bombay Central is, unfortunately, not the place to get it, it seems. I heard from previous experiences of my friend that “the rice has been better” but if you, as an Indian restaurant, can’t even cook consistently good rice then that raises some serious questions.
