Bombay Chopstix is a pan-Asian restaurant in a busy Irving strip mall, part of a three-location mini-chain with a menu that spans from chop suey to chocolate-filled sweet spring rolls. But the Irving location of Bombay Chopstix has a secret: a second menu, marketed under a different name. Welcome to Indian Oceans, which offers cuisine that’s truly rare in Dallas: Indian seafood. This hidden restaurant-within-a-restaurant, serves fried fish, Indian-style, along with shrimp curry and the extraordinary sight that is crab masala, a gently spicy bowl of curry from which an entire crab protrudes like a dazzling vision. Bombay Chopstix may be a fast-casual spot for lo mein, but its alter ego, Indian Oceans, has the DFW area’s only menu fully devoted to Maharashtrian and Goan seafood. The Malvani curry is available with goat meat, but try the pomfret, a fish that Indian Oceans also serves fried. It’s a marvelous curry, bright orange and spotted with cilantro, with powerful but agreeable heat. The fillets are tender; it’s easy to pull the meat apart from the bones with a fork. Indian Oceans is an exciting addition to Irving’s Indian food community.
