Bombay Brasserie Is Being Transformed

Expansion, new menu items and a totally upgraded space will create the newest and finest Indian cuisine in the Mother City

Bombay Brasserie, Taj Cape Town’s signature fine dining restaurant, which offers exceptional and authentic Indian cuisine, is being expanded and given a major redesign.  While dining at Bombay Brasserie will be suspended during the renovation, signature dishes will be offered at Taj Cape Town’s Mint Restaurant & Terrace during the makeover. Mint Restaurant and Terrace has also recently undergone a revamp and it now boasts an expanded outdoor terrace for relaxed seating as well as and a beautifully revitalised interior space.

Before the renovations begin on 17 June, Bombay Brasserie patrons and regulars are being encouraged to come and enjoy this iconic restaurant in its current form and to relish its intimate atmosphere and unique legacy.

The expansion and upgrade include not only major décor alternations but also a new menu that will feature even more contemporary and delectable dishes by Executive Chef, David Tilly.  The aim of the revamp is to make Bombay Brasserie the ultimate and only destination for fine Indian dining cuisine in the city centre.

The new look Bombay Brasserie will feature subtle neutral tones that will be accented by bursts of different shades of blue to complement the intricate, yet colourful wall and chair designs. Different fabric textures, copper-coloured serving dishes, beautifully patterned lighting lampshades, crisp tablecloths and elegantly placed table settings will not only enrich but also mirror the new and modern menu. With the addition of hints of orange and yellow, the new restaurant will encapsulate the dynamic and sumptuous patina for which India is renowned.

Executive Chef David Tilly’s culinary expertise will take the original concept of artistic fine dining at Bombay Brassiere and give patrons a cultural journey through various Indian regions and taste influences. The new menu will also pay homage to local agricultural products and fresh ingredients from local suppliers in order to deliver the most sensational and delicious tastes and textures.
Changing from a 40 to a 70 seater dinner service, Bombay Brasserie’s popularity is undoubted.  Mark Wernich, General Manager for Taj Cape Town says: “We are extremely excited about this transformation. With such high demand from our local and international guests, the Bombay Brasserie expansion and refurbishment will allow us to offer an even more authentic Indian fine-dining experience.”

For those diners who are unable to come before renovations begin need not be disappointed.  Throughout the makeover period, signature Bombay Brasserie dishes, such as the ‘Murgh Khatta Pyaaz’ – chicken masala, pickled shallots served with Tandoori naan & basmati rice and ‘Lucknowi Gosht Biryani – lamb morsels “dum” with cooked basmati, amongst others, may be ordered in Mint Restaurant & Terrace, which is Taj Cape Town’s sister restaurant.

Bombay Brasserie will then reveal its new look end August 2019 – in the meantime, here is a teaser of what to expect in the look and feel as well as the menu and the food.
