I was not sure what to expect, my first Indian food. I found this restaurant to be very nicely decorated and the people very friendly. I enjoyed all of the food that I had at the Sunday buffet.

Some of the Best Indian food I have had and this is coming from someone who lives in Manhattan with places all over. Great quality of meat and cooked to perfection. During the right season, you have to try the Lobster Masala but for a dish anytime of the year, go for the Chicken Tikka Masala or the Vindaloo. I... More

Ok we've finally found a great Indian place near portland. Bombay Mahal had great Chana masala (they added cauliflower), chicken curry (have it 4 stars worth of spice). If tulsi in kittery is the best Indian just over the border, then Bombay mahal rules from wells on up to Freeport and probably beyond. Family owned for 24 years. We will... More

Visited restaurant on October10, 2015 and was immediately seated by the window in Downtown Brunswick. The menu has a wonderful variety, prepared authentically and generously served. I was delighted with my Mixed Grill plate and my Special Someone loved her Curry Chicken dish. With appetizer, India beer and dinners, we considered the $53.00 bill a great bargain!! Highly recommended when... More

Friends and I came here for dinner following an art exhibit visit recently. None of us had been before The place was packed, but we waited only a very short while to be seated in the nicely lighted main room with cloth panels decorating the dropped ceiling panels, with quiet Indian music playing. This appears to be a family-run restaurant.... More

After a month eating New England type food, we were ready for some real spicy food. We found Bombay Mahal in downtown Brunswick. The restaurant had been in business for over 20 years in the same location under the same owner. The waitress helped us pick out some good Indian dishes that had a lot of curry taste. We started...

Bombay Mahal...definitely worth the 35 minute drive from Hallowell on a Sunday afternoon. We started with the traditional Nan bread that was served warm with garlic, ginger and cilantro...perfection! My entree was the Chicken La Jawab and it was out of this world. A saucy deliciousness of boneless pieces of Chicken Tandoori with peppers and onions in a coconut creme... More

My wife and I have been wanting - for the longest time - to try Bombay Mahal and, thankfully, we finally did last night. We had the honor of accompanying a very dear friend (who is originally from India) here who, in turn, introduced us to his very dear friend Raj who owns Bombay Mahal. But that has nothing to...

The food is excellent. A nice touch is the various chutneys served with other foods, rather than costing extra as in other Indian restaurants. The breads are particularly good.
