Went to Bombay Brasserie twice during our recent Xmas break in Cape Town. First - the really positive things.This is a beautiful room in the Taj Hotel - elegant and a great " old school" dining space. Next - great staff and service. They really looked after us and genuinely care about the diner.Good wine list - entirely South African - but that is no bad thing. We enjoyed a great Stellenbosch Pinotage and some lovely crisp local whites. The food is presented beautifully - from a delicate Amuse Bouche to start, palate cleansing sorbet's between courses and an excellent selection of appetizers. But... the food falls a little flat - some dishes were ok ;but it lacked the punch and intensity I would expect in classical Indian cuisine. We liked the experience( which is why we went back..) but I was left just a little disappointed.
