Little pricey (but so is everything else in Vancouver) but really good selection of items on the buffet prepared very well. Great view, too

I had the most expensive meal in this restaurant on my recent visit in Vancouver. The food was very good but not incredible but I have to say I don't like high-end indian restaurant food and prefer more home cooking options. If you like indian food is a good option but a more continental like flavour. But very good nevertheless.

We were in Vancouver and feeling the need for some quality Indian food. I had seen Salam Bombay mentioned and it was nearby so it passed the initial selection test. We didn't realize that it was on the 2nd story ( there was an elevator if required) so that was neat. The restaurant was quite attractive and inviting. We had... More

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
