Original Post

Being vegetarian and living in the Southern Part of Puerto Rico, it is never easy finding a vegetarian friendly restaurant.

Even more difficult is finding one that serves authentic Thai and Indian food. The only restaurant on the Island that I really enjoyed eating their Indian Food was Bangkok & Bombay which use to be in Condado.

We had seen that they had put up a sign for one in Coamo, the town where I use to live and is right next to Santa Isabel where I live right now. In less than 10 minutes I get some of my favorite Indian dishes without having to drive for more than an hour  and deal with traffic.

We arrived with a good friend more like family to tryout the  food and were surprised to find out that the one in Condado no longer exists. I sat down and identified that the menu was the same.

After ordering some pakoras and samosas, I found the dishes to taste even better than when I tried them at Condado. We ordered some Malai Kofta Curry and another entree Mater Paneer. We were very happy with the authentic flavors of Indian Cuisine while providing us a great experience.

So for all of you that want to try out Indian Cuisine, tasteful vegetarian dishes, and in the southern part of the Island feel free to visit the new Bangkok Bombay.

I have to say that the decorations where unique and made it comforting for you to stay and want to return.

    You can go meatless one day out of the week. Just do all vegetables. And you can gradually work your way from there. Thanks for reading the information and look for the post inspired by you. Love you!

    This was by far the best place to eat for me in the Puerto Rico metro area. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was absolutely one of a kind. I miss it and have to visit in Coamo!

    We just dined there on Thursday and our daughter loves the Malia Kofta Curry. What we learned from the daughter’s owner is that everything from the garam masala to the paneer is made by her mother the chef/owner. That is why everything tastes delicious. Thanks for stopping by!

    I loved Bangkok and Bombay since it used to be in Isla Verde – back in the Royal Siam days!  Glad to hear it is not completely “gone”.  I’ll have to grab some takeout next time I go to Villalba for work!

    I have to say that we are only 5-10 minutes away. So if you are in the area let us know. We are always looking for an excuse to go to Bangkok & Bombay.

    The great thing about the restaurant as explained by the daughter of the owners; everything is made in house! 

  10. […] love going to Bangkok Bombay and now recently to Casabe restaurant because both are great at offering me healthy vegan options […]
