I visited this restaurant during my business visit to MPLS. The main reason to select this hotel was that it was right below the service apartment where I stayed. I had been for both dinner and lunch. Dinner is usually ala carte and Lunch was a good buffet. I recommend to Lunch buffet as it reasonable and has lots of... More

The title says everything...it's my favorite Indian food in MPLS! The atmosphere is cozy, and the waitstaff are super friendly. The negative reviews I see are focused mainly on the lunch buffet, but I've only ever gone here for dinner or take out (and I usually get the same order...cheese pakora, chana masala, rice, and naan). The wine is good,... More

Have eaten here a year ago and enjoyed the buffet. Returned with guests, expecting the same quality. We arrived at 2pm (buffet closed at 3pm) on a Sunday at the south Indian branch (located in same building as North Indian Bombay Bistro, confusing walk down the hall and around a couple of corners). There is no restroom in the South... More

The sign reads open at 11:00am. They were open but there was no food until about 11:07am and they weren't fully prepared until about 11:20am. The food on the buffet was good. The nan had to be requested but was piping hot and delicious.

I went here for Sunday Buffet. Starters were good but the main course was tasting bad. Paneer and Chole were really bad.

I asked the concierge at the Hilton and they suggested this. My husband and I were quite surprised since we read the reviews and for us it was amazing. The owners were there taking orders and making suggestions, and everything they recommended was amazing (the dahl and palak paneer were really tasty). In Minneapolis you don;t have great options for... More

It used to be a nice India restaurant in Minneapolis area. But their quality and service was not good during my last few visits.

Lunch at Bombay Bistro buffet is the most pathetic idea that me and my friend planned for. Horrible food. Most of them half burnt. Biryani never tastes how it is in Bombay Bistro. Same with other item.

The meal was quite good but the menu was very extensive. this leads me to wonder how some many curries can be prepared freshly.
