ABQ West Side: Bombay Grill or India Palace?

Thanks everyone. We wound up going to Bombay Grill Friday night, and we loved it! Could've been because it was our first date night in almost three years, but the atmosphere and the food combined to make an extremely happy evening. The papadum and dippers were good, though I had to watch out for the really, really spicy stuff. We both had combination plates--I had the lamb and chicken plate, my husband had the non-vegetarian plate. We both started with soup--he had the chicken, I had the dal. They were both very tasty; lots of good spices going on. The platters were both fantastic--my husband's included prawns in a nicely spiced sauce, lamb curry and something else I can't remeber. I had tandoori chicken, which was moist and delicious, some lamb vindaloo (I think--sorry, I'm still something of an Indian food neophyte), and a sweet mushroom dish. We both had garlic naan and jasmine rice. The naan was unbelievably garlicy, but well worth it.

Anyway, we would both go back in a second. I can highly recommend the restaurant. Romantic, but not obnoxiously so, good food and attentive service all combined to give us a wonderful date night.

ABQ West Side: Bombay Grill or India Palace?

My husband and I are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary tonight, and we're going out to eat (without our 3-year-old, for once!) on the west side. I'm jonesing for Indian food, so we're trying to decide between Bombay Grill and India Palace. Does anyone have a recommendation?

I'm willing to take a taxi. Any other recommendations?

Dinner in D.C.?

I'll be in D.C. next week for a conference, and I would love to find some good restaurants somewhere close to the convention center. I would prefer inexpensive to mid-expensive (is that a real word?)--somewhere around $30 or below. Can't wait to try some new places!

Kansas City Role Call

I'm here! Definitely a KC Chowhound, but hampered a bit by the two-year-old boy who isn't into trying new and exotic foods. :) We live in Johnson County, but we'll go most anywhere for a good meal. We're always looking for good places to try--we love barbecue (the original Jack Stack is our favorite), Mexican, Italian, etc. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Barb

Malaysian in Kansas City

This sounds fantastic! Some friends of mine and I are trying to "lunch around the world," as much as we can in Johnson County. Do they serve lunch?

Thanks,
Barb
