This is my favorite cuisine and I've learned over the years that not all Indian restaurants are good. Bollywood Masala has never failed to serve me a delicious and satisfying meal. I've had the buffet - excellent! I've ordered from the menu - excellent! Raj and Mona (the owners) take a personal interest in the quality and authenticity of the... More

indian food is meant to be eaten with balance; a little spicy, a little sweet, a little dry, a little sauce, some vegetables, some protein. The cook has always come out for us and helped us find the balance. The food is delicious and makes for a wonderful lunch the next day.

The best Indian food I have ever put in my mouth; a delicious array of choices. Don't let the exterior or dark interior dissuade you. The food is fabulous!

I have been here for lunch a few times. They have a pretty good lunch buffet with vegetarian choices. The naan is excellent and so is their chai tea. The atmosphere is nice and usually pretty quiet.

Easily the best indian food in the Southern Maryland area. Owners are very friendly and willing to help you order if you are unfamiliar with the cuisine.

Good change of pace. Authentic dishes. Neat place. I have been there several times and I try and get something different each time. We went there for a special occasion and enjoyed it.

I was in India last year and I love going to Bollywood as it brings back the memories of the amazing food we ate there. Service is excellent, friendly and fast.

There aren't many ethnic restaurants in Southern Maryland but Bollywood is truly good Indian food. The owners take great pride in their dishes and will answer questions about the menu items if you don't know what you like. Go at lunch and you can try different things on the buffet. The owners often suggest foods or tell you what you... More

Having read the reviews and having discovered that this restaurant was rated #1 of the #58 restaurants in California, MD, four of us went there Friday evening. The food was good, but the service was slow, no one came to ask how things were after we were served and when we were finished, the case with the bill was pushed... More

My wife and I are new to the area and are "adjusting" to the lack of variety of restaurants compared to the Atlanta area. We both love Indian cuisine, read the reviews and drove the 12 miles to "Bollywood". Please do NOT be discouraged by the fact that this restaurant is located in a half deserted strip shopping center.
