Food and Service was very good

The owners daughter had our table that night and she was an amazing server. Knew the dishes and menu inside and out. We had a big party that night and everyone was very satisfied with quality and quantity. Def would go again!

We were driving back to Burlington from seeing a play in Drayton, and we have stopped at the Bollywood before - it is right on the way. We were in the mood for a light dinner, so we started with vegetable simosas. Simosas were spicier than normal but very good. Our main course consisted of Chicken Tikka, Vegetable Korma, and...

Had a fire recently and redecorated, but the food continues to be consistently average. Decent prices and good tandoori does not a great indian resto make.

The server Priya was prompt and polite. The papadoms were a new try for me, with cilantro and.. don't remember the Red sauce. Not to my liking but it was something new and was also complimentary (and gluten free). The food came out very quickly and was quite delicious!! Very filling portion. Music was Nepalese (owners are Nepalese) instrumental and... More

The new owners continue with authentic Indian. Always friendly staff. They are great with my two year old and find it awesome that he eats everything we try. They are more than able to adjust spice based off of like. Mild when we are with my son and spicy when not on the same dish. Great food.

Ate dinner here for Mother's day - the food was fantastic. very fresh ingredients, not oily or greasy, everything we ordered from the tandoor grill was amazing as well as the fresh nan bread. The wait staff were very sweet and attentive. This is now one of my favourite restaurants in guelph and they have a great lunch menu too.

We took our customer here for lunch and the food was fabulous. There were five of us and we ordered a variety of items from the menu and shared the dishes among us. I just hope our customer wants to return there when they come again. The food always tastes better when the company is picking up the bill.

I'm sad the change of ownership seemed to diminish the atmosphere and ambience of this restaurant, we sat for about 15 minutes without anyone coming to serve us and got up and left so cannot comment on the food! At least acknowledge someone is at the table and get them a drink!
