I ate there 10+ yrs ago when I still lived in the area. The Indian food that they served was very very good. I tried their lunch buffet once and everything was very tasty. I've also had the yellow curry (with chicken or lamb, can't remember which), paratha bread, and Chai tea. Everything was... read more

Our party dined early on a recent Friday evening, so that we could catch the opening of a movie just down the block. Menu is quite extensive, and the majority of our party has significant experience with ordering Indian food! Server was quite pleasant and prompt. Female server who brought one drink and cleared some of the plates had an... More

A great experience at Bombay Mahal in Mid-coast Maine. Massive menu selection with normal Maine prices for Indian. Went right before the rush of dinner service, so service was quick! Started with a tasty batch of freshly based garlic naan, followed by a rich and creamy chicken dish called chicken la jawab. Can't wait to be back in!

Typical Indian Buffet but I really dig the restaurant atmosphere... very cozy and swarthy colors but warm at the same time! Offered 3 types of bread... including nan. Most of the meat items offered were chicken... would have liked some lamb or beef at least. Good flavours and excellent kheer (coconut milk rice pudding) and I recommend trying a mango... More

While there was only one other couple in the place, our service was terrible. The server didn't even take our entrée order until after he cleared our appetizer plates. We were there for nearly 2 hours. The food was excellent, though! I would recommend take-out.

Usually, when scoping out an Indian restaurant, I get paneer or Mali Kofta but I decided to be daring and get the fish curry (medium spice). It was one of the most flavorful dishes I've ever had. Very complex! I kept trying to guess what they used as far as spices were concerned. The naan was also superb. I also... More

We have sort of standardized on Shere Punjab the past few years, but recently have found that it is a little too popular. Nothing wrong with the food, just longer waits than we would prefer. So a bunch of us decided to go back to Bombay Mahal, which I believe arrived in B'wick prior to SP. We were very happy.... More
