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.

Went here last Friday with my family and extended family. We all agreed the food here was excellent. Really fills you up. Plenty of vegetarian dishes as well. Plenty of curry sauce to soak up with the different types of breads. Staff was very attentive - something sorely lacking in most Southern Maryland restaurants! Reasonable prices as well.

I live in NY and was born in India so I've had my share of Indian food to be able to say that this is by far the best Indian food I have ever had. I have had many meals here and I have never been disappointed. If you go - have a conversation with chef...he will tell you how... More

We have been patrons of this restaurant since it first opened and still consider it the place to go for special get-togethers, after church lunches, and family dinners. I had not tried many Indian foods prior to coming here and Sunny slowly got me to let go of my fear of spicy food, remembering each time we went what all... More

The lamb I had was extraordinary. Big chunks usually end up being a lot of waste, not here. I was really surprised at the quality of the meat and the care with which it was recommended and served. I needed something without sugar or rice or flour and the owner(?) recommended boti kabob. I hadn't seen Indian food served on... More
