Drink pairing tips

  • The best drink pairing for prawn curry

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for prawn curry can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cold drink, particularly a glass of saffron lassi. This, sweet, cold drink balances the spicy prawn curry.

  • Pinot Noir and vegetable jalfrezi


    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some red wine. We find that a Pinot Noir, with its hits of ripe berries, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The ideal pairing for butter chicken

    When having butter chicken, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

Did you know?

  • Overpriced, much?

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

  • A long time ago

    noodle has an interesting history, but it is generally agreed upon that it originates from China. The tasty dish has become immensely popular and sought after throughout the world.

  • A typical drink from Thailand

    Often considered one of the most classic drinks in Thailand, thai tea is a top choice across the country, often made with tea, milk and sugar.
