Drink pairing tips

  • Pair prawn curry with saffron lassi

    To elevate your prawn curry experience, we recommend some saffron lassi to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cold drink cools the palate between bites.

  • Viognier with your shellfish curry

    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Viognier, with its hits of peach-and-apricot, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The perfect match for your butter chicken

    Experts suggest pairing a butter chicken with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.


Did you know?

  • The ideal pairing

    Often regarded as one of the most traditional drinks in Thailand, thai tea is a favorite choice across the country, often prepared with tea, milk and sugar.

  • The largest mango sticky rice from 2019

    9,921 pounds is the record for the biggest mango sticky rice. We hope people were hungry!

  • The most lavish curry

    Does $2,584 sound like a lot to you? Well that’s what the most expensive curry will cost you at Bombay Brasserie.
