This is a bare bones Indian restaurant. I typically go at lunch and do the limited buffet. The food is good but the layout is cramped and needs updated or reorganized. It is a fair value for the money.

Bollywood Masala is a great little local restaurant. The lunch buffet is reasonably priced and always kept stocked. The evening menu is great too! One of the few local restaurants that I have visited regularly.

Worth stopping in for the buffet lunch. Tandoori was excellent. Good selection of flavor - intense veggie dishes.

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 meal. Also, if you're a... 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
