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

We went yesterday to have dinner. We chose to go for Mini Dinner Buffet. There were just few items in the Menu.The food was left over and beyond stale,they didn't even bother to heat it up.We couldn't eat a couple of bite. They don't tell you before hand that, that the CRAP they are serving is $14.99 per person. We... More

The service does not deserve even 1 star. The people who gave 3 or more stars have no concept of quality in service or that of food. They are arrogant -- and rude, and have no concept of service-- they think they are doing a favor to the customers. The spoon/bowls are not available half the time. The tables are... More

This is a pretty big setup and they have a party hall as well. They pretty much have the same menu all year through - I am not exaggerating - for the afternoon buffet. A la Carte menu has some good selections though. Food is good but not great. Not spicy - so good for people that cannot take spicy... More

We had their buffet dinner yesterday. They have a good selection of veg and non veg items in the buffet and you won't feel that there should have been more variety. All dishes are core Indian dishes and look wise they definitely remind us on India. Taste? not so real Indian... Food looks adapted to the culture here and doesn't... More

Despite the high prices, we did not see much varieties on vegetarian dishes. The food was cold and not much of taste as expected. When I first had my lunch with an american friend back in 2008, the food was fantastic, however its no longer the same. I can blame it on the cook.

We love the food at Bombay Gardens, but we can't figure out the toad-like personality of the staff/management. They seem like they hate it there and hate their customers. We were told by a waiter to pay the tip in cash because the owner refuses to give them their tips if they are added to credit card transactions. The staff... More

I'm from Bombay, and when found out that there's a restaurant in the Silicon Valley called 'Bombay Garden', I was quite tempted to give it a shot. The buffet was really elaborate, but none of the dishes were going alongside my gustatory anticipation of a restaurant from Bombay. The dishes were not suited for the diet-conscious or even health-conscious pursuits,... More

My wife and me visited the restaurant, We were amazed to see the variety of food in the dinner buffet. The price for sunday buffet is cheap too - $13.99. But the taste of the food and the quality was above average. Though i liked the gajjar ka halwa and south indian dishes.

Went there for my office welcome party with new colleagues. Great restaurant with lot of options. Advise for people. Don't do there between 12:00PM to 1:00PM in weekdays, this place is huge and full at that time. U may need to wait in a long line for long time to get food.
