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

First, I have to share that the woman (wife?) was very kind in helping me get my mom and her walker into the restaurant and then back down afterwards. Unfortunately that is all I can say that is really positive. Once we were inside we felt mostly ignored, though all of those eating were quiet and looking equally ignored. They... More

Since we have a limited ethnic variety of restaurants in Montana our group opted for Indian food in Boise. We were pleased beyond our expectations at this beautiful restaurant in the heart of downtown Boise. Located in a convenient spot in downtown, in an old restored building, the atmosphere is beautiful and the owners and staff very friendly. The portions... More

I had never tried Indian food until I visit Bombay Grill. I have really good first impression because of that place. I want strongly recommende to visit Bombay Grill for everyone, Indian food experts or for peoples, who have never tried it. The environment is quite luxurious, but very cozy, the staff are friendly and helpful, delicious food and kind,... More
