"Bombay Affair is the love child of two people who came from two different cities and bonded over their love for food. Bombay Affair believes in delivering a great experience. It all started when Chef Heena came to Australia and realised how much she missed Indian food. She wanted People to try,the authentic Indian food with all the spices and aroma. More than everything, she wanted to cook the food that reminds Indians of home. Our chef, Heena, has always been passionate about food. Most of her childhood was spent watching her dad & her brother handle their family business of a sweet shop & restaurant chain back in India. The love she puts in her food is a reflection of how much she wants the customer to enjoy their experience. While Heena knows her way around the kitchen, Naresh knows how to take care of the business. Apart from helping Heena at the restaurant he also handles his car trade and has an amazing experience in sales. Where Heena focuses on completely giving the guests some great Indian food , Naresh looks into giving the customer an experience that they do not forget. We strongly believe in the magic of freshly made sauces and marinades. Bombay Affair strives to provide the guests with mouth watering flavours and an ultimate experience. Come and enjoy a taste of well cooked Indian Food !!!
