If you consider your time to be valuable, just avoid Bollywood. You'll save an hour plus waiting time to eat food that could be easily prepared in advance. The food is good, nothing to complain, but I won't come back.

The restarant was next to our hotel so we decided to go for a meal. We loved it. The food was authentic ... Almost as good as home cooked and the staff was very warm. It is indeed bollywood themed playing indian songs and you forget you are not in India. We ended up going again before leaving geneva.

We had a lovely dinner here with friends. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere is quite cute with the Bollywood theme and the chairs are very comfortable. The service was friendly and accommodating. The menu selection is extensive and each of us enjoyed the dishes that we ordered. Nothing seemed to be an issue with special questions on... More

My colleague and I ate here when we stayed nearby in a hotel. The food was typical swiss price (overpriced), but the quality was very average. The restaurant decor was nice though and was very apt for the name as it had a large screen playing bollywood films but we couldn't see it as it was playing in the main... More

This restaurant is one of three owned by the same gentleman that believes in total customer satisfaction in every sense of the word. They have a large screen movie screen playing Indian movies with great entertainment to compliment the excellent food and service. The Chef is from India whom I have met personally in ordser to thank him for his... More

Good Indian food. What made it for us was the fab service. We left too much money and they found us down the road to return it. In a big city found this exceptional

The food here is okay....probably much better to go with a large group of people. I went by myself and the menu is set up for sharing among large groups of people. The food was well cooked-- about average for a decent Indian restaurant. The service a bit bossy.

There are just too many good options for Indian food in the Paquis neighborhood to eat at this kitschy, over-priced restaurant. I would much prefer Cafe Ghandi or Sajna.

We were told that it was the same kitchen for both restaurants but this is not true, the Bollywood is definitely a lower quality Indian chef.

This is a very pleasant restaurant with excellent ambiance, enhanced by Bollywood films and music, a sort of permanent side-show. Food is ok but nothing extraordinary. (Very good chappatis and aloo palak paneer). Portions are on the generous side. Large selection of open wines.
