  • Bombay Borough takes guests on a culinary journey across India.

Dubai (January 2020): A celebration of hyper-local Indian cuisine – Bombay Borough, which officially opens its doors at DIFC Gate Village 3 on February 1st, 2020, offers guests a carefully curated selection of India’s unique ingredients, spices and flavours, reinvented. From small bites to large feasts, Bombay Borough’s eclectic menu comes with a twist and enables armchair travellers to embark on a culinary adventure that serves up the very best of India, in a way they have never experienced before.


Discover the ideal space for everything from drinks after work to meals with friends and loved ones. Bombay Borough is Indian to the core, the epitome of the India of today and tomorrow, and the perfect place to rediscover India through an explosion of flavour. With a menu that sources Bhoot Jolokia from the North East, Aam Papad from Amritsar in the North West, pink salt from the Himalayas in the North, and some unique Podi Masalas from the South – Bombay Borough brings together rare flavours that aren’t readily available globally.


The Food

From Guntur Podi Chicken, Haleem Pate with Saffron Sheermal and Aam Papad Paneer, to Naga Ghost Pepper Wings and Panch Phoran Chargrilled Prawns, Bombay Borough’s ingredient-focused small plates and grills make for great conversation fillers, allowing guests the opportunity to whet their appetites before the meal unfolds. The large plates that follow will satisfy even the heartiest of appetites and are also great for sharing.


Finding the right pairing enhances each ingredient and elevates the taste of every large plate. Unique menu highlights include Bombay Lunch Home Veg Curry and Banana leaf Rice, Mario’s Mango Prawns & Coconut Rice, Chennai Crab Roti, and Smoked Jodhpur Mutton. An extensive dessert selection means guests can end their meal with something sweet and, in true Bombay Borough style, something surprising.


The Gully Kitchen

For those who want to experience fresh Indian food to go, The Gully Kitchen, Bombay Borough’s fast-casual kitchen, offers Indian originals, alongside new interpretations, made from scratch. From gluten free Dosa Pockets to grab-and-go Biryani, expect some great options for the fast-paced DIFC crowd through the day.


High Chai

When the time is ‘In Between’, a time when most restaurants close to regroup for the next service, the moment is right for High Chai at Bombay Borough, where the doors are always open, ready to share vibrant stories and flavours from every corner of India. Guests can sample a range of chai and cocktails, awaiting that perfect pairing, including Masala Chai. Literally translating to ‘spiced tea’, Masala Chai is brewed using black tea, along with fragrant herbs and spices, and Bombay Borough’s very own Chai Masala really is something to be savoured.


The Bar

The bar at Bombay Borough is a well-travelled one: a botanist-inspired space where old favourites, from a diverse range of cultures and countries, comfortably sit alongside refreshing new brews. With Desi cocktails that combine local Indian ingredients and killer Pauwa cocktails served up in local Bombay bar quarter 180ml bottles, paired with Chakhnas bar nibbles, as well as an extensive wine list, guests will find the ideal elixir to enjoy each evening after work or play.


The Space

Whether guests want to dine al fresco on the terrace or sample indoor comfort – Bombay Borough is a multi-layered space, spread over two floors, with options to suit everyone and inspirations from around India. Guests will be immersed in a welcoming Indo-chic ambience, inspired by a fusion of the modern French and British-era old bungalows of India, which infuses the west with India, in a space where people can gather over good conversation and great food.
