More about Bombay Affair, Southport

The Gold Coast is home to an array of incredible restaurants, but the award winning Bombay Affair is something truly special. Offering a unique menu that includes tapas-style dishes – a rarity for Indian – this Southport jewel has been rated as the best Indian on the Gold Coast, and it’s no surprise why. With succulent dishes using a variety of fresh and traditional Indian herbs and spices, Bombay Affair has perfected the balance of rich and tangy and sweet and spicy flavour combinations.

Situated on Scarborough Street – close to the stunning Southport coastline and beachfront – Bombay Affair is a family-owned and run restaurant that makes you feel as though you’re the most important person in the room, all while serving homestyle and delicious dishes. With so many incredible options it’s certainly hard to choose (which may be an excuse to visit regularly), but we recommend sampling a variety of Bombay Affair’s small, savoury tapas-style dishes ranging from chholle tikki to paav bhaji and samosa to hara bhara kebabs. This local favourite fills up quickly so it’s recommended to book in advance to secure your table.

Great food. Couldn't want better Indian food. Excellent friendly service. Starts from the moment you walk in and they place cold rose water (with fresh mint) in front of you. Curries brilliant - large servings and about as genuine as it gets. Best butter chicken you'd ever taste - not that overly sweet stuff you get some place - this is a memorable butter chicken with a little bit of bite. Breads outstanding. Perfectly cooked - crispy and soft in the right places. Cold Beer on tap as well. We've lived on the Coast for 13 years - tried many Indian restaurants - and this is by far the best Indian food we've tasted. A great night - and wonderful Indian food experience. We'll be back.
