Nice little neighbourhood place for indian food. Service is cute, like the little air india maharaja, place is tiny. Depending on their take out business, this is a mom and pop operation that serves poor indian food. Prices are cheap and the menu is interesting.

I have been to the Bombay Cafe 5-6 times for lunch in the past ten years. I have found that service to be very friendly and timely. But the food is mediocre. I eat a lot of curry ... both at restaurants and home cooked. I find the food here to be very greasy. I don't understand why there are... More

Nice family run business. Food is great and service as well. It was quiet the evening we ate. I ate the dinner for one which has a nice variety, lots ofgreat looking dishes on the menu. And cheap beer.

I've been getting take-out from the Bombay Café for many, many years. It's still run by a family of three, and the service and quality of food it very good. Having said that for the size of the main dishes, the prices are a bit high. But the sauces are way better than anything you can get from a jar.... More

This is a small mom and pop run place and has been for years. They aim to deliver a good authentic Indian meal every time with no surprises. Usually we get take-out from here but you can dine-in as well. It's small in side, and he recently updated the dining room which it needed, so go here for a good... More

Placed a take out order for a small family get together which was difficult since the web site domain has expired and the only menu I could find was pictures of a menu (poor ones) taken for someone else's review. With that in mind, the food is reasonably priced and is good but not great. Solid choice but there's better... More

I was in town on business and stopped in for lunch. The owner greeted and sat me right away and the service was excellent. I had the lunch special which was butter chicken. It was very fresh, hot and tasty and great value at $7.99. I can see why this place has been around for over 20 years and I'll... More

Wasn't sure about this place because the outside is a little bit dingy, but we went in and were pleasantly surprised! The service was amazing and the food was authentic - probably the most authentic - that I've ever had. We ordered our food at "medium" spicy and we were sweating! If you are not sure you can handle it,... More

Super awesome place for authentic Indian food! Amazing food at a ridiculously low price. I can't say enough about this restaurant, the food is absolutely incredible. We have had take out and eaten in several times and the meals are always incredible. The restaurant is small but the service can be a little slow because they have limited staff.
