The Spy has investigated many restaurant rumors that float through the Mid-Shore throughout the year, but when we received news that there was a possibility of an Indian restaurant in Cambridge, there was an instinctive reaction to label it “fake news.” Nonetheless, duty called, and we took a field trip last weekend to confirm or deny this existence of a venue for curry and are pleased to report that those reports have turned out to be entirely accurate.
Here are some of our findings:
1). The Indian restaurant goes by the name of Bombay Tadka and is located at 1721 Race Street in Cambridge.
2). The food is excellent and remarkably fresh.
3) Some staples of Indian cuisine are missing from the menu. Regrettably, Naan bread is not to be found along the favorite Tandoori chicken. It was also a disappointment that Tadka has yet to get their wine and beer license, which we hope will be resolved soon.
4) The service was attentive even during a busy night.
5). Like any new restaurant, there were a few hiccups and odd twists to our meal. It is also safe to say that while the curry dishes were outstanding, they seemed remarkably different in taste and with presentation from your traditional curry house.
6) We conclude that Bombay Tadka is the “real deal” and a welcome addition to the Mid-Shore.
