We were staying at the Fairmont Airport on the way back from China and were craving a good Indian meal after twelve days of Chinese. I read about Salam Bombay and ask the Concierge to book a table, which they did. We took the train from the airport and got off in town. Only a two block walk to Salam Bombay. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and sat what is probably the best table in the house, right on the corner view of the street. The manager, Victor, came over and introduced himself and thanked us for coming in from the airport to dine. He took our drink order and promptly served my wife's wine and a nice cold Kingfisher for me. We were off to a great start! Review of the menu ensued. Excellent selection of dishes and fair prices. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Upon ordering, he was excellent at discussing the dishes and making further recommendations. In fact, I changed my order per his recommendation. Food was served in a timely manner without being rushed and true to our waiters words, the entire meal was great. We completed the meal with dessert and an after-dinner coffee / tea. Not only was the food and service excellent, but the staff was fantastic in keeping the meal moving but never giving us that rushed feeling. After a long trip, Salam Bombay delivered on all levels exactly what we needed. We even had a nice conversation with Victor about our home, Austin, TX on the way out. Thanks to Victor and his entire staff.
