An Exotic and Unique Monmouth County, NJ Eatery is one of Yelp’s Best Reviewed
A local spot got a ton of glowing remarks on Yelp making it one of New Jersey's most popular restaurants on the review site.
When it comes to the restaurant scene, just one Yelp review can make or break a business.
Even the best-of-the-best eateries rarely have a 5-star rating on Yelp.
There is however one Shore restaurant that I would call a hidden gem that does indeed have a 5-star rating and hundreds of glowing reviews.
These reviews are so good in fact, that this restaurant is one of the highest-rated in the state on Yelp.
Let me introduce you to Bombay River in Red Bank!
If you've never been, Bombay River is an Indian restaurant that is a pure culinary paradise.
It's worth noting that Indian cuisine features so many different and bold flavors.
Bombay perfects them all.
That would be grilled salmon or Salmon Tikka. Delish.
Bombay River is also very versatile.
If you want to sit down for a fancy meal, they can accommodate.
Or, if you need to eat and run, they've got their "bowls on the go."
Here's one rave review:
Wow, this was so good. I'm a newbie to Indian food, but we wanted something different for dinner. We ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Shrimp CoCo Curry. We've had the chicken from here once before and it was great. This was our first time having the shrimp and it was so good. Creamy spicy sauce coconut sauce with a generous helping of large shrimp. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture before I dove in.
We ordered take-out, the gentleman on the phone was very friendly and efficient. I opted to order by phone so the Bombay River didn't lose money to grub hub. Pick-up was smooth and everyone was wearing their masks appropriately (i.e. covering mouth and nose.)
Bombay River is a tasty and much healthier alternative to fast food.
You can have your meal delivered via Door Dash or Grub Hub.
However, I would absolutely recommend sitting in the restaurant. The ambiance makes the food taste that much better.
If that's even possible.
