About a year ago, Bombay Spice, the Indian restaurant owned by JNK Concepts, made some big changes. The restaurant, originally located off Tatum and Shea, moved up the road to a new spot outside Paradise Valley Mall. It also went from serving a full menu with table service to being a Chiptole-style fast casual dining spot.
Now, Bombay Spice has closed altogether and a new Indian restaurant is ready to take over its former home. Marigold Maison Indian Cuisine will open its doors today at 4720 East Cactus Road. The new restaurant will serve a menu of both Northern and Southern Indian specialties.

Marigold Maison also will serve innovative takes on Indian favorites such as seared scallops, whole tandoori fish, and whole hen. That's along with classic dishes such as tikki masala, vindaloo, and korma.
The menu will benefit from the addition of a new Tandoori clay oven, which was not in the space when it was occupied by Bombay Spice. Marigold Maison also will offer an extensive wine list and happy hour deals such as $2 garlic naan, $3 chicken pakora, $4 Tandoori shrimp, and $3 chick pea ceviche.
The restaurant will participate in Arizona Restaurant Week, coming up September 19 through the 28. It will serve a three-course meal for $33 with options including paneer pakora with papadums and sauce; Tandoori tikka with chicken curry, rice and naan; and warm gulab jamun.
