Attentive service and fabulous food. Wine selection will shock you--better than most upscale restaurants. Food was tasty, non spicy and authentic for our young boys. Food was perfectly spiced and delicious for us. Lamb, chicken, chick peas and saag was delectable. Seafood passable. I would rate this one of the better places in North America. Did not have the commercial,... More

Salam Bombay is located upstairs across the street from the back of the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel downtown, on the corner of Burrard and Alberny st. Calm modern decor, full bar, no need to dress up. We ordered the Chef's special which included multiple courses, appetizer and dessert. We specified spicy. Every single dish was sublime, no kidding. The service is... More

I go here about once every other month and as an indo-Canadian that has tried out pretty much every Indian restaurant in the lower mainland, this one is my favorite. The food is truly authentic and the staff are all very pleasant. I suggest the butter paneer for new goers.

We had dinner there 3 nights out of four. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very good as well. I am yet to find a restaurant in Houston that can compare to this one. Highly recommended.

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the staff at our hotel. Had wanted to go to Vig's but opted for something closer. We were not disappointed. Service was helpful and attentive without being intrusive. I love going to a restaurant where everyone working there feels customer service is their job. The food tasted excellent and didn't disappoint. I... More

I loved this place! We had the best table at the corner with a great view. Friendly service, flavorful dishes, simple but cute plates they order from Tata (India's best known global brand). My favorites were the mint sauce (yes the sauce!) for pakora, potato & cauliflower, and pitachio ice cream. We only had veggie dishes since my friend is... More

Probably our best Indian meal ever. The spice level was perfect and we were told that they could spice it up a bit on request. The servers were very friendly and informative.

We were greeted and seated by the window fairly quickly, possibly because it was sunday evening. Ordered wine from a decent wine list. Food was served quickly, tasted good with a South Indian style of cooking (spicy, but not very oily or buttery). The menu was varied and interesting with plenty of choices. Prices were a little on the expensive... More
