Excellent food, so-so service

First, this place has a huge menu and a large variety of typical offerings. As a vegetarian, I appreciate finally finding a place around here where I can find more than two choices on the menu. The servings are large enough to either share with a friend or have leftovers to take home for another... read more

Family friendly. Fabulous food. Butter chicken is a must. Anything on the grill is delicious. Lunch buffet is well worth the money and comes with naan.

Family owned, Bollywood Masala offers labor-intensive authentic Indian cuisine. The smells and tastes of cardamom, cayenne, and tamarind will offer a new experience to the unfamiliar western palate. The garlic naan goes well with any dish. There is a choice of kabobs, a wide variety of curries and vegetarian options as well. Be sure to make your hot and spicy... More

Bollywood Masala is an amazing find in St. Mary's County. Eveything is delicious; whether you're getting chicken, lamb, or veggies - you will not be disappointed!

The food here is flavorful, plentiful and seemingly authentic (one of my nieces in law is from India!) , the service is fair, the ambiance is neutral. However, the best thing about Bollywood Masala is the fact that it's the only game in town if you have a craving for tandoori, curry, masala, naan....

WOW! This is hands down, by far the best curry I've had in almost 5-6 years...and that was in another country. The dishes are flavorful and the naans are just perfect. If you've ever had a lassi and haven't yet found...they have lassis too! The staff is friendly and helpful and help make the dining experience a great time. I... More

I've tried many menu items. The sauces are great the breads are all tasty. If you like your food spicy, you can get it here, but they also have tame dishes. Just ask the wait staff and they will guide you to the right choice/temperature.

I have been a long time visitor to this restaurant. It is by far the bar I set all Indian restaurants against and I have yet to find any other that comes close. The flavors burst from the sauces whether it is a korma, vindaloo, or hyderabadi you can never go wrong. The authentic Indian flavors will tantalize your taste... More

This local restaurant is on our regular rotation and we are always pleased. I could make a meal from the naan alone! There have been many changes to the interior decor over the last year or so that has greatly improved the atmosphere IMO. But really, if the food is excellent, who pays attention to the atmosphere?! Even my 'meat... More

Nowhere else can we get these flavors, but it is also quality indian food. We love how they make suggestions for the children and answer hot/mild questions. We always order more food than we can possibly eat because it all is so good!
