New In Town
Read review online by channel news asia and was attracted to menu. Hence my friends and I headed to try. Located south of Jakarta in new South Quarter complex comprising of office towers and retail. Though in operation the surrounding areas still in construction mode. No crowd, shops cafe some with few customers or none at all. Bambaiya located at Tower A on ground level. No one in the restaurant on Friday evening when we arrived late past 8pm. We found out from waitress that they hv lunch crowd but not for dinner. We ordered butter chicken pot pie, curry was creamy not too rich, too sweet not to my liking but my local friends love it. Lamb Shank Rogan Josh also too sweet but has a nice flavour in the curry and i wish the meat was more tender than dried. We all love the Dhaba's Chickn Tikka that was succulent, tender and juicy as what i expected. We also love Crispy Okra fries that was perfect to dip into butter chicken pot pie curry Hariyali Paneer Tikka texture like fried tofu and was expecting stronger flavour. Panner texture different from what I tasted before. I cannot decide if i dislike or like it. Having said all the above i did not have expectations but did enjoy the meal with my friends who thoroughly enjoyed the sweetness in the curries. I would have preferred stronger spices, less sweet and dishes steaming hot. Will go back again to try many other interesting dishes.

Excellent Pub Indian Delight
Great venue in the South Quarter Complex. The menus has enough variety with some fusion dishes for that curiosity factor. The flavors are simply delightful for that lunch time escape. Try the chicken Brian I or the tandoor chicken burger.... anything. It will not disappoint the palette.

my dinner during Lebaran holiday
Not my first time at Bambaiya, I had lunch here at least 5 times., Usually I like everything included the chicken tikkas but this time both the dhabas & irani are dry like it was bake yesterday and serve today while the naan bread served long after all the curries. This is my first time bring my family to dine here and I wish I can impress them with special Indian food. Oh well... it was my unlucky Lebaran holiday dinner..
