Last week Thursday I had the lovely pleasure of having dinner with my Twinny aka Twinster aka Dorothy. She was away for my birthday the weekend before so we had our own little (PLATONIC) private birthday dinner for two to celebrate. :”)
We went to Levy Junction under the guise of eating at the Portuguese restaurant, Adega. After walking around the mall and popping into Mr. Price to buy outfits for R&G’s Oktoberfest we changed our minds. We were craving some Indian food, not just any average kind….We wanted the food from one of the best Indian restaurants in Lusaka, Bombay Lounge.
Surprisingly I had never eaten at Bombay Lounge before despite being told repeatedly that it was the best Indian eatery in Lusaka. As I walked in, I immediately fell in love with the space and the décor, incase you haven’t been it is quite spacious and well decorated.
I ordered the fried Papadum to start, as I was too scared to try the steamed, which the waiter told me is much spicier than the fried. Yeah yeah sometimes when you are told its authentic, you don’t wanna mess with your taste buds. Maybe next time.
For the main meal I ordered the medium Jhina Dum Biriyani because I felt like eating some prawns. The medium flavour definitely did not disappoint me at all. Twinny also had a Chicken Biriyani and some Naan bread… we stuffed our faces silly.
All in all I give the food a 10/10 review because it was authentically Indian, the menu has offerings from various parts of India and the pricing is reasonable for the portion size (sides and starters from K5-K40, mains from K55-K120). It is not your usual Indian food for a non-Indian palate. The service was also lovely, with the manager checking on us throughout our dining experience and staff explaining and recommending food on the menu. On any other HUNGRY day I am sure Twinster and I would have ordered the whole menu, but there is always a next time.
