«Bollywood», Wil: Dreaming of distant lands

Pining, good-looking actors, lots of music and gorgeous dance scenes come to mind when you hear the name “Bollywood”. Not necessarily food.

Pining, good-looking actors, lots of music and gorgeous dance scenes come to mind when you hear the name “Bollywood”. Not necessarily food. Although - the Indian entertainment films sometimes last so long that you can undoubtedly get hungry in between. Bollywood - a mixture of words between Bombay and Hollywood, stands over the entrance of an Indian restaurant in Wil. The building on Untere Bahnhofstrasse doesn't seem exactly Indian yet. But when we step in lively - with the Bollywood music in our head - we are surprised by the furnishings of the restaurant - and immerse ourselves in a strange world. The pictures on the wall, the furniture (chairs like small gold-plated thrones), the figures put up - everything testifies to the original home of the manager and chef Bag Singh Gill, who greets us warmly.

Our concerns about hardly meeting other guests on a Monday evening (after all, nobody likes to eat in an empty restaurant) were completely unfounded. Most of the tables are occupied.

Loud sounding menu names

Bag Singh Gill, wearing the traditional Indian headdress, disappears into the kitchen. And we make the acquaintance of his friendly, courteous wife, with whom we place the order.

Just looking through the menu with all the names that sound is an experience. For the starters, we choose Samosa-Veg (dumplings made from wheat flour with a racy vegetable filling, 8.50) and Shahi Jhinga Pakora (shrimps in a batter made from chickpea flour, 15.50). Both tastes good to us, and we find the mint sauce particularly delicious.

There is a small wine list in «Bollywood», but that evening we drink beer, the Indian Kingfisher.

The choice of main courses is huge - the different curries alone.

Once hot and then sweet

Lamb tikka is served once, marinated pieces of meat with vegetables roasted in a clay oven, with fresh naan bread (33.50). The slightly longer waiting time for dishes from the clay oven was worth it. Opposite there is ghost curry with basmati rice (32.50), tender meat in an excellent sauce. The portions are large, to feast on. Speaking of spicy: in «Bollywood», seasonings are made according to the guest's wishes. Mild curries are also offered as children's menus.

If you like it to be really sugary now and then, you can order gulab jamun for dessert, fried milk dough balls, served in hot sugar water ...

Our impression: A variety of freshly prepared Indian dishes - a very nice change when eating out. And if you don't want to go outside for one evening, you can order the exotic variety from the “Bollywood” delivery service.
