If you've got Indian on the mind, a recent opening is need-to-know. The new addition to Columbia Heights, called Bombay Street Food, is located at 1413 Park Road NW.

Restauranteur Asad Sheikh (Curry Mantra, London Curry House, 1947) brings the spicy flavors of his native Bombay to colorful digs once occupied by Vietnam Chelsea Restaurant. Sharable appetizers include numerous vegetarian options, like potato, pea and cumin samosas, and yogurt and chutney puff balls. Kati rolls (known as "Frankies" in Bombay) come stuffed with chicken, minced lamb, or cottage cheese and egg. There's also biriyani rice dishes, thali platters, curries and more.

Bombay Street Food has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.

Alice B., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Nov. 27, wrote, "I was excited that Columbia Heights was getting a new restaurant and this did not disappoint. I'm not an Indian food aficionado, but everything I had was delicious. The staff was very nice and attentive."

And Michael G. wrote, "Great food and very attentive service. Large variety of dishes, not just the standard options. Nice stylish decor and a good wine selection. Very glad to have a sit-down Indian restaurant in Columbia Heights."

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Bombay Street Food is open from noon–3 p.m. and 5 p.m.–10 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, noon–3 p.m. and 5 p.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and noon–3 p.m. and 5 p.m.–9:30 p.m. on Sunday.
