Great service, tasty authentic food!

We went for dinner ronight. It was FANTASTIC! Authentic tasty sauces, excellent cook on our lamb and chicken dishes. The portions were quite large - we had leftovers. Our waiter was very attentive and on the ball! Apparently, their lunch buffet is incredible! We'll be back!

Every item on the buffet is delicious with plenty of vegetarian options. Chai, naan and dessert are included too. The owners are very charming and complete the experience. Only down side: they are closed on Mondays, so if you get a craving then you're stuck...but they are open on weekends when parking is free downtown. By far, my favorite place... More

Let me start by saying I hate buffets, the food is always so meh at buffets. I inquired with the hostess about gluten free options and she said the entire buffet was gluten Free. The dough balls and naan was off limits though. Very tasty options here, I will come back.

Everything was delicious and well prepared. The beer was cold. The cucumber salad with a side of yogurt dressing was perfect. The curry lamb dish was very generous, flavorful, and well prepared. Service was good but not overboard. This could become a favorite.

I called in my to-go order at 5:30 pm. I was told the food would be ready at 6:00 pm (30 minutes later). Sounded reasonable. When we showed up at 6:15 pm the food was far from ready. It was finally available at 6:40 pm. I am never going back. What an incredibly bad "restaurant".

The Bombay Grill is in the old part of town inside an old hotel with character and a bit hard to spot. Worth finding as the luncheon buffet was delicious and very reasonable. Most of the customers seemed to be Indian and that speaks well of the authenticity of the food. We both had the buffet and it was delicious... More

I had the shrimp tandoori, which was delivered before any appetizer or other dish. I sent it back to wait for the cucumber salad and garlic naan we specifically ordered as an appetizer. The garlic naan had nearly no garlic and was quite small for $4.50. The cucumber salad was good. When dinner arrived, my shrimp were the same ones... More

I was craving Indian food so we went for lunch. The food was decent for the most part. Good saag and makhani, but not spectacular. The gulab jamun (Indian donut holes) were soggy and tasted stale. Tandoori chicken was dry. Pretty good naan. Our dirty plates piled up on the table until the server came with a bus tub to... More

The buffet is an awesome way to try a lot of different flavors of food in one go. At less than $10 per person, it's a great lunch option.
