Review of Saucy Bombay - CLOSED

Dining options: Lunch
Description: “ An Indian place just moved into one of the 16th Street Mall's major food courts. Downtown vegetarians and lovers of Indian food, rejoice. Saucy Bombay isn't just another little sit-down place with a lunch buffet and candied fennel in a shallow copper dish by the cash register. It's Indian fast food — cafeteria-style — and a great idea. Here's how it works. Pick a protein — steak, lamb, chicken, mixed vegetables, spiced garbanzo beans (the mixed vegetables and garbanzo beans are splendid, hence my shout-out to vegetarians, who so often are stuck with bland, cheese-heavy options). Then choose a sauce for the protein. The place offers spicy tikka masala, creamy spinach, a mild and rich korma, and a sauce made from yellow lentils. All of them are powerfully flavored and unique; I was partial to the tikka masala and the korma. All of this is ladled over lightly spiced basmati rice. Another option: Instead of having it served in a plate over rice, order it tucked into a wrap. Another way to go? A grilled Indian wrap. They have excellent samosas and a tasty fried-potato appetizer, too. Get a mango lassi — a sweet drink made from mango juice, yogurt and more — or some chai, and be on your way for less than $10. Most of the entrees are $5.99. Saucy Bombay is simple, and so smart. I hope more of them pop up around the city.” By Douglas Brown The Denver Post Posted: 09/29/2010 01:00:00 AM MDT

“Lunch time with Indian fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

This is a lunch walk up only establishment in the Food Court on Tremont and 16th. Simple concept, choice of meat (lamb, beef & chicken) or vegetarian, choice of sauce (Vindalloo, Masala and few others) on rice. The place is clean, service is quick and the food is fresh and tasty. You can order to go, or eat in the shared space like most food courts. Ideal for a quick business lunch or take back to the office.
