A colleague and I had dinner at Bombay Spice while in Chicago on business. It was an easy walk from our hotel downtown. First the negatives – the front door was very heavy; I watched people struggle with it upon arriving at the restaurant, and it banged noisily every time the server went outside to wait on the outdoor tables, which was every couple of minutes. The music was also very loud, although I guess I got used to it. The service was mediocre, and the food was decent. We both had the build-your-own entrée consisting of a base (all vegan), a sauce (all vegan), and entrée (veggies, chickpeas, tofu or meat). The food was actually better than most Indian restaurants I’ve eaten at where the menu is heavy on meat and creamy dishes.
Cons: Noisy front door, Loud music, Apathetic staff
