Bombay Talkies is a cosy eatery in the recently refurbished Whitfords mall cinema area.
We popped in for a light bite following a film, and we received a warm greeting from the staff. The menu is designed so that you can have as much or as little as you like, and includes Indian street favourites like pani puri, kati rolls and sheekh kebabs as well as curries and biryani.
We started with some poppadoms and mint sauce – they were crispy, fresh and good.
I decided to have a chicken biryani, which was plentiful, and came with a curry sauce. I couldn’t eat all of it and the waiter kindly packed up the leftovers for my work lunch the next day.
My partner chose a tarka dhal and rice. He loved every mouthful – a nice fresh dhal with plenty of lentils, a nice coriander taste, and a little heat from the chillies. Rice was fluffy ans separate – everything you would expect from good rice.
I was very impressed and would be happy to go back to try another meal. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in the Whitfords strip. They are also on Uber Eats, so if you fancy a curry in a hurry – Bombay Talkies could be your best bet.
