Indian food in and near Boston can reach a kind of parity where the usual suspects of dishes just seem to meld together into a kind of not-really-bad but not really great either kind of experience. Bombay seems to know how to awaken your palette from some sleepy Indian food dream and give you new hope for Indian cuisine. Lamb... More

This was my first time eating Indian food, and I worried that it might be too spicy, but it was delicious! I had the chicken tikka masala, and I'd call it addictingly good! I also loved their version of bread called "nan". The waiter was very kind and described many dishes to me and offered great recommendations. My vegetarian friend... More

This restaurant was located in our hotel, so we decided to try it even though we never tried Indian food before. The host was friendly and helpful. He took the time to answer all of our questions. The food was served hot and quickly.

Came from Columbia/Dutchess County,NY for this treat After reading the reviews I thought I'd give it a try. Dined alone without feeling odd and took home some food for my spouse. He's had Indian food that I've encouraged him to eat but this was a major rave. Going back for the exotic dinner fish dishes soon.

3 or 4 times a year we take an almost 2 hour drive to have dinner here and stay at the Black Swan Inn. The food is the best Indian food we've found in New England. The chef is always willing to accommodate my special dietary needs without losing the authentic taste of the food. My husband enjoys not only... More
