Deliciousness from India in the Heart of the West End

There’s a traditional tandoori oven churning out fresh naan in the West End. Bombay Kitchen & Bar on Denman is the local Indian go-to secret spot — a deliciously sublime way to end a day at the beach.

After perfecting the recipes over three decades and five different Vancouver locations, Bombay Kitchen has a loyal following for its high-quality ingredients, exquisite seasoning, and family-friendly pricing.

Fresh, Alive with Flavour, and Easy on the Budget

We talked with Harsh Sharma to find out what Bombay Kitchen’s newest location at 1061 Denman Street is cooking up. “There’s a great feeling to the Denman location. Chef Andy’s house specials keep customers coming back. Our Fish Tikka features homemade garam masala and brushed yogurt to die for — two fillets in each order means that combining it with biryani makes a lovely to-go meal for the beach or a quick pick-up on the way home.

“Our kitchen is unbeatable when pairing spices and fresh ingredients from the best sources — sweet and savory combinations, and a Pilsner or glass of Pinot Noir. It’s a meal to remember,” Sharma said.

“The best way to enjoy an authentic, India meal is to experiment a bit. Try the Tima Tim Paneer with Andy’s overnight-soaked curd from a milk-base. The Murgh Malai Chicken is a house special — great partnered with a smooth Mango Lassi, our traditional summer yogurt drink,” Sharma added.

You Know They’re the Best ‘Cause They’re ‘Sticking to Tradition’

As head chef and owner, Chef Andy’s traditional family recipes from India were perfected in the high-end hotels of Bahrain before bursting on the Vancouver restaurant scene. Bombay Kitchen’s licensed restaurant on Denman, a couple of blocks north of English Bay’s laughing sculptures, is open for lunch, dinner, and late-in-the-evening drinks and bites. Daily Happy Hour features meaty chicken wings, spinach paneer stuffed naan, and sweet-chili cauliflower, with Steamworks on tap.

“We feel privileged to have the trust of the community,” Sharma explained. “Our catering service provides Lower Mainland weddings, corporate events, and private parties with a ‘wow’ factor. We offer a full-service catering menu for up to 1,000 people. We can provide bar service, vegan and vegetarian options, and even a hookah lounge set-up — plus food that our clients’ guests rave about afterwards.”
