Warmth! That was our immediate reaction to the Bombay interior. A most welcome warmth after a walk through the windy cold of Vienna’s seventh district, and the piquant aromas of capsicum, cumin, cloves, coconut and of course, curry. Even the walls were a fiery red.
The decorations were simple, white tablecloths and silver platters, small elephant faces gazing at you from above on the wall. And the restaurant was petite and cozy, with only room enough for about 25 people, making this an intimate space to share Indian cuisine and almost impossible not to listen in on the table next to yours.
