Bombay Bicycle Club - Balham
About Bombay Bicycle Club - Balham
For twenty years, the Bombay Bicycle Club has been a mainstay of the south-of-the-river dining scene. It's a bright, welcoming restaurant with unmistakable pink awnings (pink being the navy blue of India) and a friendly welcome. Inside, the cool off-white walls, fresh flowers and Indian objects here and there make a new, modern promise that the menu fulfills. This is upmarket Indian dining, so be prepared to experiment a bit. Dishes could include starter of king prawns Arabi in mild northern spices, then a main course like chicken aishwarya in almond sauce, with rice and naan sides and dessert of mango cheesecake. Or stick to classics and favourites - either way, you'll be happy.
