The motto of Salaam Bombay Budapest is “Indian cuisine redefined” so you can expect updated Indian cuisine. The wide range of dishes include various vegetarian plates, which are not easy to come by in Budapest, the haven of meat with meat, bacon and grease eaters (disclaimer: I am one of them). The Salaam Bombay Feast for two is about 7000 HUF, the Valentine Day’s couple treat is approx. 9000 HUF – in general, the Indian restaurant is moderately priced.
To quote from Frommer’s travel guide: [Firdosh] “Irani came to Budapest in 1994 via New York, and has been in the Indian cuisine business for over 30 years. And it shows, since this restaurant probably gives you the best value that your money can buy in Budapest, as well as a unique look at a more contemporary and varied Indian menu than we are accustomed to. .. Psychedelic colors pervade the space, with shells, sand, and bamboo sticks leaving it both exotic and sparsely contemporary at the same time.”
