Wonderful atmosphere, ambiance and service.

It was fun to dine with the whole Indian experience. Shoes off, sitting on cushions and eating what felt like authentic fare, especially their naan to clean it all up. Lots of flavor, good portions and attentive service, but the price seemed steep, even if we were in Cherry Creek. Enjoy!

We eat a lot of Indian food, and there is a lot of it in Denver, but we had never been to this restaurant until this week. This is now our new favorite. We went with friends, and all six of us enjoyed our dinners, but I LOVED mine: the Goan seafood curry with black tiger shrimp. This is a... More

We usually enjoy the buffet when dining hear. We arrived for a late lunch, 1:30pm and the buffet food was poorly maintained and many items we had to scrape off the bottom of the chaffing dish. We will reconsider if we will return.

Food was not 100% upto the expectation. We ordered Chicken Biriyani, Paratha & Shrimp Kuruma. Of this Chicken Biriyani was horrible. Paratha & Shrimp Kuruma was ok. Cost was very high.

My daughter and I went here for her birthday lunch.It was the first time here for both of us. The buffet was wonderful. Everything from salad to rice pudding for dessert. We sat in one of the private booths which made the occasion special.After lunch they brought us a piece of mango cheesecake which was out of this world. I... More

Took some Japanese business colleagues to this restaurant. The service was fine. Nice seating area. I asked for spicy and found they had just sprinkled some cayenne pepper on top of the dish! The samosas tasted like cardboard. Blandest indian food I've had in my life. Interestingly, my Japanese colleagues found it to be OK, so I'm sure people with... More

We have been devoted patrons of the BCO for a good twelve years. At one time, it was outstanding in all categories. Not any more! The service was terrible, the food was mediocre and the prices have risen to ridiculous for what you get - a small serving of your chosen entree with a scoop of rice and teaspoonful of... More

Nothing horrible-nothing great. Don't I wish someone could modernize, upscale and fusion-ize Indian food?! It's all predicable but acceptable. My kids love it. Sitting shoes off in the booths is fun for them. Respectable option if you have the fix but nothing terribly inspiring. It doesn't help that my mom can make all this stuff and make it 10 times...
