How much is a pound of food?

Plate above measures exactly a pound (plate + food).

Why don't you have more items on the menu?

Common to most Indian restaurants is the fact that menus are exceedingly long and varied. With this comes the impossible challenge of keeping everything fresh and consistent. This can lend to cooking methods that are unhealthy with food being oilier and greasier for longer preservation. We believe that food can only be fresh when cooked in smaller batches, precisely, and with tremendous love and care. It is why we have chosen a handful of favorites on the menu that we cook everyday, so that the freshness can be tasted in each bite.

Why not use butter or ghee?

As you may have seen on our menu and/or our website, we do not use butter or ghee (clarified butter) in any of our cooking. We have developed our menu so that it is accommodating for guests who follow a strict vegan diet and therefore the use of butter and/or natural ghee would make that impossible. Instead we use soybean oil to cook and at the same time, disprove the notion that ingredients such as butter or ghee are necessary for delicious-tasting Indian food!

Why are portions only 10 ounces for entree selections?

We have determined that the average portion of 10 ounces is sufficient as a filling meal when combined with rice and/or naan. We have also priced it accordingly with entrees starting at just under $5 each. Furthermore, our portions give the individual a greater ability in achieving variety...simply order two different entrees and create a larger, varied meal and perhaps have some left over for later.

Why are items at the buffet bar sold by weight?

At mumbai bistro we believe that food should not go to waste. When food is purchased from our buffet bar, it can also be taken home, back to the office, or wherever. It is our small part in promoting a healthier lifestyle and eliminating wasteful ways to which we have all become somewhat accustomed.
