Bombay Mahal

This will be more like a tiny glimpse of a restaurant instead of an actual full-on critique...
Isa and I went to get our eyebrows done on Jean-Talon near Acadie where there are lots and lots of indian restaurants. After the crying and the eyebrow threading, Isa got the marvellous idea of pointing out that we were around the butter chicken mecca of Montreal!

The place itself is really nothing special. It is not that clean, has unstable tables and still has Christmas lights up (although I remember last time we went it wasn't xmas time and they still had them up, so maybe it's a thing). But who cares, they have butter chicken (right on picture).

We crossed the street over to this restaurant which we had been to a couple times with one thing in mind: buuuutter chiiiiicken! We ordered butter chicken and two nan breads (17$). Man, that was DE-LI-CIOUS! Can't get better butter chicken than that in MTL (some have said that it is even better than the one you can get in India) : tender chicken in a butter sauce with some coriander...mmmm. makes me want to eat some right now!

The service was quick and we got our food very quickly as well. The one bad thing about the experience: we found a hair in our food. Sucked but I guess it happens.

Food: 9/10 Amazing, minus the hair.
Service: 7/10 Quick and efficient, but no actual effort to smile :)

Place itself: Rating here would suck BUT I mean, it's a small, bring-your-own-wine restaurant that people know and love so they don't need a nice looking venue to enjoy it
