It can be a bit chaotic inside Bombay’s at lunchtime, as interns try not to screw up their boss’s order in the hot foods line, people shoulder their way to the register to get their pickup orders, and others stand around waiting for seats to open up so they can dine in. We recommend avoiding all that and ordering delivery, especially because they offer a delivery special that includes an appetizer, entree, and naan for $16. Get some crispy samosas and spicy roganjosh with tender lamb, and pay the extra dollar for the garlic naan. This buttery, flaky bread is great on its own, but it’s even better when you use it to soak up the pool of sauces in most of the entrees.
