Tasty dishes, Very fair pricing

This was a wonderful surprise to find in Simpson Bay. It's located above the McDonald's so, it's easy to locate...just walk up the stairs to the 2nd floor. They have outdoor seating and a wide variety of dishes on the menu. We were excited to see dosa offered. There are so many fancy restaurants... read more

This is really the best Indian in town. They have so many dishes and all are great. We normally ask them to choose 2 plates for us and we will choose the rest. This to keep trying different flavors. They know the difference between hot and medium and always come with the best advise.

This is a real Indian restaurant (and you can see this because there is always a huge table full of Indians) with food from different regions. It is hidden above McDonalds and there is no sign on the steep staircase, but it's worth walking up. It's classier than Lal's (nice tablecloths and decorations on the walls) and has a lot... More

We go to St. Maarten every January, and look for new restaurants to try each time. We like Indian food very much, so over the years have tried several of them in the Simpson Bay area. They have been okay, but nothing special. Bombay Bites is the winner, so far. The decor is unimpressive, and the setting (above a McDonald's... More

My wife had been trying to get me to try Dosa for a while now. The locals in all of the shops told us to go to Bombay Bites. So we did. I'm glad we did. The food was very tasty, had the right amount of heat, and it was a great value.

As Canadians who live in a large Indian Community this is by far one of the best values we have experienced in St Martin. Great food , wonderful tastes, dispersed in a wonderful friendly family enviroment. If you like Indian food don't pass this by. We ate there twice so far and enjoyed each time. We plan to go back...

Bombay Bites is one of the best values on St. Martin. The restaurant is located in the heart of Simpson Bay, which makes it convenient from pretty much everywhere.. The decor and ambiance are nice and authentic Indian music emanated from the speakers. For dinner, we ordered chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, panjubi, garlic naan and rice. Our server was...
