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.

very tasty, asked for spice level preference so perfect for our taste (medium mild) well packed. Great owners been there for years, so we are regulars.

Stop in for great food that is very reasonably priced. Two can eat for less than 20 dollars at lunch including tip. Have a chat with the owner who often tells us about his home.

Karim - the owner welcomes everyone with a huge smile and is always friendly. After eating at this establishment for the past 15 years I can honestly say I have NEVER had a bad meal. After choosing your desired curry Karim's wife will add just the right amount of spices to your taste, from mild to extra hot. This restaurant... More

Very nice little place. Food is quite authentic, tastes great and is very affordable. Great place to have lunch - at 7.50 CAD also probably one of the cheapest. Interesting and varied selection, although don't expect "american" dishes. Service is friendly, if a bit impatient. Overall I would definitely recommend Bombay Cafe if you love Indian food or even if... More

The decor is...modest, but the food is sublime. I have never had better Indian food, anywhere, and at such a reasonable price. Bombay Cafe is a surprising treasure in this little city. I will definitely enjoy eating here with more regularity.

Price was great about $20 to $30 cdn with wine! Regular locals came in when I was there, a good sign. Also, a couple of Indian decent told the owner they enjoyed their meal, another good sign. The owner said he was in business for about 20 years. Not too fancy but if you like Indian food you will like... More

I guess when you see the place you know its small and what to expect. We went there as I wanted to try authentic Indian food. I like it hot and my partner mild. He said he could bring hot on the side. I guess he forgot. I didn't complain. The aloo goovey (spelling?) was spicy enough but the others... More
