Bombay Indian Restaurant, Nampo dong, Busan, South KoreaGood Indian food seems to be becoming more and more common here in Busan.  Less than nine months after reading about how difficult it was to find decent Indian food here, there are at least three good options.  The most recent one I’ve tried is Bombay Indian restaurant in Nampo-dong.

The owner and cook is a really friendly guy who speaks perfect English.  He explained that they serve western Indian food, which shares a lot of elements with Pakistani and Afghan foods.  The menu lacked some of my personal favorite Indian dishes, but there were also a lot of things I’d never heard of and would like to try.

Bombay Indian Restaurant, Nampo dong, Busan, South KoreaSampling everything will be easy because Bombay  is really inexpensive.  Most dishes are 6,500 won (plus 1,500 – 2,500 for nan or rice).  The portions aren’t huge, but they were enough to satisfy me on a very hungry day.  The atmosphere is pretty simple and laid back, definitely very comfortable.

The debate has begun about whether Bombay is better than Namaste.  I still put Namaste at number one, because they have a more extensive menu that includes more of my favorites.  However, Bombay is about half the price, and there are plenty of new menu items to try.  I guess I’ll need to go back a few more time before I can truly decide.  Still, after a long day of shopping in Nampo, Bombay Indian Restaurant is an excellent option.

Walk past “The Pan” and “The Pho.” Go a few blocks. You’ll see a large Caffe Bene on the left. Go down the street for a block and a half. Bombay is on your left.

Re: Bombay Indian Restaurant

This write up is great but I have to say Bombay is way better Namaste and all the food is made with fresh ingredients every day.  Namaste's curries taste very processed if you ask me.  If you go to Bombay between April 1st and July 1st he is giving 20% discount to all foreigners, you should get this automatically but any concerns just say Rob sent you. Chris is a great guy and wants to cook for more foreigners so he has set this up for us.

Re: Bombay Indian Restaurant

will definitely have to give the bombay a try.  in all the times i have eaten at namaste i have never thought the curries tasted even a little processed.  very tomatoey or something, but not processed.  this goes for their seoul locations, too.  what curries do you find taste(d) processed?  if you say bombay is better than namaste, it must be worth the journey.  thanks for the announcement about the discount to foreigners

May be I just went on a bad night I can't even remember what I had but I remember feeling like it was something from a packet and heated, but like I say only been the once.
