Go for the food, not the service.

The food was very tasty, authentic Indian. Unfortunately our waitress was borderline rude. We were the only ones eating there at 5 o'clock on a Tuesday.

This place is a TOTAL RIP OFF! I was at this place on my birthday with a bunch of friends. We were the only people there on a Friday night!! The pitcher beers were soo overpriced (13.50 each) and the waitress was standing besides me at the end looking at the check asking me to give her cash rather than... More

In short, avoid this place. The owner is rude,(I had the experience of getting ripped off by billing in excess.) Most of the times they are out of some of the most common dishes. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this place! The place is not great for any of the dishes.. I guess they are still in business since they... More

Loved this place when the parents owned it and ran it. A fine Indiana buffet. Now they have turned it over to their son who made it a Hookah Bar. We never went back after the change. Never will. Sad.

Prefer to order out rather than eat at the place, little quite and dark. More of a bar. But the food was very good

I have been here many times. there is always billing disputes. they charge more for drinks. some people who consume alcohol and are too intoxicated to check their bills are charged for stuff they haven't even ordered. Their alcohol is diluted and overpriced. its a college town bar where i have seldom found people making out in their restrooms. the... More

I visited Bombay today with a group of my colleagues. We did look for a chill out place rather then restaurant,so the atmosphere was good up till 10 pm,when they raised their music so loud that i couldn't even hear the person next to me talk. Further, i do not drink much,usually go out every 2-3 month, but i do... More

Great Indian food but conversion into a bar has transformed it into a smokers club rather than a sit-down restaurant. The emphasis is more on booze and buds rather than food.

This used to be a nice Indian restaurant, with a large menu at dinner time and a nice buffet for lunch. It has now been reborn as "Bombay Hookah Lounge". The menu has been gutted, and it's dark and full of smoke. It used to have white tablecloths, and now it looks like my basement when I was a teenager.... More

Wonderful service and delicious food! We stumbled on this during a college visit to check out Purdue. The choices weren't plentiful in West Lafayette, but this stood up and took a bow. The owners couldn't have been more hospitable. We ordered off the menu and all 5 entrees were great. Highly recommend!!
