A new Indian restaurant has taken over the space formerly occupied by Bombay Bar and Grill, an Indian eatery in the Village Center, 616 Post Road East, from 1985 to this past September.

The new restaurant, the Mumbai Times, was opened in September by Tarun Narula, a restaurateur from Wilton who managed Bombay Bar and Grill from 1995 to 2002, according to a release.

Since taking over Bombay Bar and Grill in March, Tarun has developed a new menu with "lighter dishes and what he describes as more home-style cooking" and decorated the 2,433-square-foot space. He has also put in place a staff of eight employees for the restaurant, which has 70 seats.

Tarun, who entered into a 10-year lease with three years left on the current contract, owns the Mumbai Times in Greenwich and Spice Root, an Indian restaurant in Williamstown, Mass.

The Westport restaurant is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, noon to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and for dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 5 to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
