Excellent food, good service

I would give it 4-1/2 stars if I could. It was almost a five and deserves more than four but Tripadvisor kind of limits our options. The food is excellent! I ordered the Chicken Pakora for an appetizer which was enough for a few people, and then I ordered the Assorted Chicken Tikka entree with a... read more

First time eating here. Was OK for a quick lunch. Limited selection on the small buffet but what I sampled was good

Saw this restaurant rated #1 in this local area on TA, so I figured I'd give it a go. I got their buttered chicken and some vegetarian samosas (sp?). Both were fine, I guess. The buttered chicken was kinda light on chicken, but the samosas were good. The service was good. No complaints. The restaurant itself was OK - nothing... More

Bollywood is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants ever. As others have mentioned, it is a family run affair. Raj and Mona create some amazing dishes. Mona makes all the sauces and sometimes helps with the table duties. One reviewer mentioned that his waitress was snooty. She really isn't. I think she's just terribly shy. Raj and Sonny are gregarious... More

Best meal that we had while visiting Southern Maryland! I can't wait to go back! Best tandoori chicken I have ever had...the level of smoke and spice was perfection. Everything we tasted was delicious and fresh. We were here for lunch during the week and the restaurant was packed. Food on the buffet was tasty, had distinct flavors, and everything... More

We eat here often. Owner is friendly and helpful. Combo chicken tikka is great. Lamb vindaloo awesome. Try the naan with dinner. The best Indian food I've had, including outside the US.

My son took us here for dinner as it is one of his favorite restaurants and we were not disappointed! Within our group we had those who preferred spicy and those who did not and they customized menu items to accommodate everyone.

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.
