LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Urban Turban, a Bombay Kitchen and Tapas Bar, is now open and ready to showcase their traditionally international menu filled with a variety of Indian classics to the Las Vegas community.
Urban Turban’s owners, Jasmine and Bhushan Arolkar, drew inspiration from their hometown of Mumbai, India to create an innovative restaurant that fuses a modern dining experience with a wide variety of cuisine styles from all regions of India and across the globe.
This is Urban Turban’s first location in the United States following the success of their New Zealand location.
Urban Turban’s head chef, Vijay Deokar, created a menu that fuses an assortment of Indian cuisine styles with American favorites, according to a press release.
Tapas style offerings, known as Bombay Bites, include a variety of chicken, lamb, seafood and vegetarian options for guests. Bombay Bites menu items include Lamb Sliders, Ginger Chicken, Salt N Pepper Calamari and more.
Additionally, Urban Turban offers sharing platters like the Seafood Platter that consists of gunpowder shrimp, curry leaf prawns and fish bites. Patrons can enjoy bottomless curries with unlimited refills like Himalayan Chicken, Bombay Lamb Masala and many more.
Urban Turban classics include Chicken Tikka Masala, Pesto Chilli Salmon and Salli Boti. The menu has additional options that include soups, salads, breads, rice, and noodles, amongst others. Urban Turban also offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
Dessert staples include Chocolate Samosa, Paan Shot and in-house home-made ice cream with flavors that include rose, beetle nut and mango, to name a few.
The Urban Turban bar offers local craft beers on tap, well-matched wines and a specialty cocktail menu that includes such drinks as the Bourbon Turban, Indian Mule, and East India.
“Opening our new international location has been an exciting rollercoaster,” said Urban Turban’s chief operating officer, Bhushan Arolkar. “Now that we are open, we are focused on producing authentic Bombay food mixed with outstanding customer service and a modern dining ambiance.”
Urban Turban is now delivering its traditionally international menu to the Las Vegas area with Bite Squad (visit www.bitesquad.com).
Urban Turban’s entire menu of Bombay Bites (tapas style), curries, sharing plates and more is available for delivery during normal business hours between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m.
