There isn't much else to say except the food and service was excellent. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and time. Our waitress was from Nepal. She was very friendly and helpful. This is now our 'go to' place for Indian cuisine in Guelph.

I discovered this small, intimate restaurant many years ago. I returned to Guelph in March of 2015 and eat there regularly. The owners are delightful, attentive and ensure that only the highest quality of food is served. There are only about 8 tables but they serve the absolute best curry in Guelph. I love Indian curry and this small restaurant... More

I have wanted to try this place out for some time but being an Indian Restaurant in Guelph I did not have high expeditions. This place surprised me with a great Lamb Korma and great sized flavourful Samosas.

I wasn't sure what to expect on my first visit. I was taken aback by how small and simple this little place was. I decided to give it a chance. Glad I did! I've only ever been for lunch so that is what I can comment on. Best prices around and a great meal. This is a secret gem hidden... More

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.
