Fo-shizzle my Sizzle!
By AMM of Strathcona, Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 10, 2006 - 12:29am [Dine in]

Five friends and I drove down to Surrey to check out Bombay Se. I'd never heard of the place, but my friend had seen the cook on City Cooks and was intrigued. We got there around 5:30 on Tuesday evening, and the place was all ours. We started with some unique appetizers. One was crispy pastry balls filled with yogurt and other spices; they popped rather pleasantly in your mouth. Another was puffed rice with crispy noodles and cilantro. They were very new to me, and quite good. We also had some nice vegetable pakora to start.

The menu had quite a few options, but we were focused on the final page, which had the sizzling dishes my friend had seen on TV. We all ordered sizzlers at $15.95 apiece. It took a little time, but when our meals came, they were well worth the wait. Our waitress brought us each a steaming platter of lamb, chicken, beef, or veggie cutlets atop rice sizzling on hot plates. The meat or cutlets came with vegetables smothered in mouth-watering sauce that was topped with melted cheese! What's more, there were "Masala"-seasoned French fries on the platter as well! My mind was blown...

The food was delicious, hot and filling. The fries were a great complement to the Indian food and certainly not something you see every day. Our waitress was quite nice and helpful. Drawbacks? The location isn't great, being stuck in a mini-mall, but the giant posters with scenes from Bollywood movies were nice eye candy. Also, the beer and wine list was limited. All in all, though, I highly recommend Bombay Se for the sizzling dishes, and I look forward to trying some of their other options.

Ripped Off

I have eaten at this restaurant on numerous occasions. We dine there especially when the buffet is open as everyone in my family has slightly different tastes in Indian food. We consider it a good value for the price we've previously been charged for the kid's buffet. 3 kids and I usually dine there for about $25 (including tip).

At this particular time, I came with 3 of my kids - age 6, 8, 9. We only ordered 2 naans between the four of us and the kids had very little portions. The butter chicken had very little meat in it and the goat curry had small pieces of meat with a lot of bones. There was no fruit this time. On the positive side, the fish pakora was very fresh tasting and the naans were soft and baked perfectly (there have been times we've been served hard and crunchy naans).

When I went to pay the bill, the waitress asked me the ages of my children. I told her and she said that she'd have to charge my 9 year old for an adult's buffet and charged my two younger children the price of the kid's buffet. Total $48!! - for 3 kids and 1 adult. WTF?

She looked at my shocked expression and asked me what was wrong. I told her that I've never been charged so much before and that I've dined there on numerous occasions. I told her that I've never had to pay adult prices for my kids and that I don't even get charged for my younger 2 because they eat so little. She argued with me and said that I must've come at lunch instead of dinner. I insisted that it wasn't so, but she wouldn't budge and I gave up arguing and paid the bill.

I left feeling stupid and TOTALLY RIPPED OFF. I wouldn't have minded an explanation of "our prices have gone up", or "this is our new kid's buffet price", but she insisted I was wrong and I could tell my her expression that she was taking advantage of me.

I can't stand dishonest people. I am NEVER going back there again.
