Good Indian food!

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.

Went on a Sunday Night for a dinner. Good part is that buffet is available even in the evenings. The atmosphere is really good for couples, families, friends etc... The number of food items in the buffet is lot. You may not be able to complete all of them. so, you can try to get your money's worth if you... More

Just when I thought my week couldn't be worse than it had been, my friend, Maurine, and I thought we'd treat ourselves to some Indian food at Bombay Garden in Santa Clara, California. We have been working hard to clear out my late parents' house, so we were too tired to go home and cook. I was still shaken up... More

I think it was temporary amnesia that made me go back to this place. I also wonder why people keep thronging to this place. The service is pathetic . There might be enough variety of average tasting food at a reasonable price ,but that is no reason to put up with the rudeness by the elderly sikh gentleman who runs... More
