Big fan of Indian food. This is the real deal!!

In Boise for a couple of days and thought I would give this place a try. Wow! I'm glad I didn't miss it. The address is on Main street but you access on the left side of the building. Great flavors and selection of dishes. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is located in the Idanha Hotel in downtown Boise. It is one of the oldest hotels still standing. The trip to the Bombay Grill is worth it just to visit the old hotel. The quality of the food is a bonus. Excellent quality with true India flavors. Do yourself a favor and experience this restaurant!

The lunch buffet was so abundant with much variety and some of the best Indian food I have ever tasted. I loved the historic hotel in which it is located. The owner and the owner's daughter were very helpful and warm. A rich dining experience all around. I'm grateful to know of this place.

Situated in the heart of downtown Boise, the Bombay Grill's location has many advantages because of it's location. The Indian Restaurant is quite close to many hotels and is an easy bike ride/walk from lots of events that take place in Boise. The building it's in is one of the most interesting in Boise (it has a slightly rustic and... More

I don't get the opportunity to eat Indian food often, so decided to try the Bombay Grill. I had passed it several times but never tried it. It's inside the historic Idanha Hotel in downtown Boise. I went on a Sunday early evening, which is a slow time. Few diners there. The menu has many delicious looking items so I... More

Excellent prices, delicious food and chai tea! Lovely and clean and comfortable place with great service and real authentic East Indian cuisine! I always go for the lunch buffet which is very economical, I love introducing friends to Indian food there!

Both the buffet and a la carte at this restaurant is good. However most dishes lack the true indian spices and are somewhat too sweet ( probably in their attempt to make it more likable to the american palate). Their butter chicken is way too sweet and the kheer (rice pudding) is too grainy. Lamb is good and is sufficient... More

We went in after enjoying Alive After 5, we had 6 people in our party. Two had never had Indian food before and they were converts by the end of the meal. Our server helped us with a selection of dishes and each one was great! We will definitely go back!

This is our favorite restaurant of all time and any place. The owners are great and super sweet to all customers. The food here is the best in Boise and beyond! This is a great place to meet with friends and family in an inviting atmosphere. No bad day cannot be cured by their butter chicken and chai. :)

Like to have your senses expanded? This place has a wide range of powerful flavors that will rock your taste buds. The lunch buffet is primo for finding out what floats your boat. Personally, it all does the job for me, but don't take my word for it. Go in and try it for yourself! Thank goodness I've got a... More
