Authentic Kebab

Attended nieces "1st" birthday party. Party was held in the downstairs hall. Buffet was fresh and served hot. Vegetable cold salad was OK. But the highlight was chicken kebab, tasted better than kebab's in best of Bangalore restaurants. Both vegetable and chicken dishes were excellent. If you are... read more

The buffets at this place (weekends) are great. Broad selection, great taste, and friendly atmosphere. On this visit I took my boyfriend and a friend and they both enjoyed it as well. I'm Indian, they're not.

The buffet does have good variety of veg and non veg dishes.. but everything is not worth the price! The service is OK

Tucked away in a shopping center is a jewell of quality and flavor. The Chili Chicken, Bombay Chicken Masala, and Saag Panner were amazingly flavorful and filling. We opted for garlic nan, and couldn't finish all the food. I've never had the lunch buffet (usually not my style), but I may give this one a try.

When craving for Indian food.. Bombay garden is the place to go! The buffet has a good variety of non veg as well as VEG. Relished on the Mango ice cream :). One thing I missed was the spicy taste in the food.. overall medium spicy!

I found the spread was above average and taste was good. I however found the naans to be quite hard by standards but I guess this is what I should expect from a buffet restaurant. My colleagues enjoyed the food and it was my send-off lunch so it was special for me. May not visit here again.

It used to be the benchmark Indian buffet with a lavish spread of 30/35 dishes but now it has been reduced to just another buffet and that also not of a very good quality. The number of dishes have been reduced and this time I didn't find a single dish which would satisfy my taste buds. It needs improvement before... More

I'm Indian, and I'll admit, it's hard for Indian restaurants to satisfy my standards. Bombay Garden passes the test. This is not your mother's home cooking, for sure, but the availability of the buffet with a wide selection makes it easy to find something you'll like. The best item is undoubtedly the goat curry.
