Decent-tiny wine pours

Ate here for first time tonight. Huge Indian food fans. Atmosphere is lovely. Only two paneer dishes which surprised us. Food was delicious but not spiced enough. Only a tiny bit of the garbanzo crackers compared to most Indian restaurants. Yogurt sauce cost extra which was also a surprise as is... read more

By chance we ended up in Brunswick and needed late lunch. The mango chicken and eggplant vindaloo caught our eyes. Food was delicious and having selecting medium for spice level provided the perfect level of heat. The service was efficient and attentive. Highly recommended. ENJOY.

Visit for lunch with a former colleague. I had the chicken tikka masala. Sauce was good but disconcerting was the chicken within it. There was a lot of cartilage and tendons and just not what I expected. I found myself really scrutinizing every bit to make sure I didn't get something weirdly chewy in my mouth. Service was average -... More

Best Indian food I have ever had - and I have traveled the world (although not to India). The staff is very courteous and friendly. The interior is eclectic. The food is amazing. Even the rice was so flavorful! There are a few outside seats, seating indoors, and takeout. There is an all-you-can-eat buffet over the weekend. I cannot comment... More

So fresh, friendly small staff and way better than other limited Indian food options in the area. I don't eat Indian food very often, but this place makes me crave it regularly now that I live close by!

Took our extended family; two adults, two seniors & three older kids here last night. excellent very fresh Indian cuisine - note :order down in the spicy scale! Although I love serious heat- very spicy is too much for me. Very prompt friendly service - piping hot food! Wish I could come back & try the buffet.

My husband, son and I were in Brunswick for the weekend for my son's soccer tournament. We saw online that this place had a buffet so we decided to go for our Father's Day lunch. Place was packed up with a waiting line when we arrived, but we were seated after about only 3-5 minutes wait. The buffet was excellent.... More

We had a very fine meal; delicately flavoured, light and very fresh Indian fare ... beautifully presented and charmingly served, in a relaxed and artful setting. We'll certainly return!

I was surprised to find such a high quality Indian restaurant in a small town like Brunswick. The food here was some of the best Indian food I have ever had. Definitely better than most of the establishments you will find down here in NJ. They didn't have one of my favorite dishes, butter chicken, on the menu but were... More

I have made an effort to try out quite a few of the surprisingly large amount of Indian restaurants in the state of Maine. However, over the past decade plus Bombay Mahal has remained my favorite by far. The family that operates it is so kind and inviting and the food that they prepare is exquisite. Over the years I...
