Stopped here for lunch after landing at the San Jose Airport. The lunch buffet had a great variety, friendly service, good value. Everything tasted wonderful. Highly recommend it!

Last 2 years were fun, but this year's New Year 2014 party was lackluster and lacked additional resources for fun. The Snacks variety was good but the Dinner options for Vegetarians was severely limited. As usual, the Ice cream machine remained broken (as was last year). It was a normal celebration event with food and some frolic (dance floor), but... More

2-3 extra dollars but the quantity / choices in lunch buffet are too many. Service is great. A true entrepreneur mailman started this place. Hope the sons can keep it up. My turkish boss loved their chicken and provoking indian songs on the TV during lunch. Don't go there with a female boss or colleague, especially if they are into... More

Had dinner buffet which included many options. Opens for dinner at 5:30 & we got there then, so food was hot & fresh. Very flavorful. Ranges from spicy hot to mild. Staff ranged from friendly to non-communicative (language barrier?), but service was efficient. Price is quite reasonable for all you can eat!

The food sat too long. Staff texting. Lunch time probably would have been better. Potatoes not cooked in one dish. Nan bread was too flacky and not moist. Tandori chicken was best item on buffet. Decor is old. Needs an overhaul.

Buffet spread was great. Went there with friends and family for lunch. They had at least 25 items ranging from north -south Indian and they also had chaat and fusion varieties. The lunch buffet was priced at $12 and I thought it was value for money. The ambience is good and can accommodate for large groups.

This restaurant was booked for 1st Birthday party of our grand daughter. The arrangement was one of the best, Indian and south Indian food was very tasty, the staff was very cooperative. The rates were very reasonable and sufficient variety of food was available - vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Has good ambient and nice decoration.

This area of California has LOTS of Indian food joints. Same have spectacular food and some have good food. I have to say Bonbay Garden is just good. Nicely decorated dining rooms, staff is definitely in character, and the curry is everywhere. Fair prices and a good lunchtime buffet will bring me back another time.

40+ dishes to choose from and each one we tried was very good. Mango soft serve ice cream to top it all off with.
