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.

The caterer had used stale "Makhanas" in one of the vegetable, which could be noticed in first bite itself. I asked the owner to come to my table and taste the... More

Loved the food and the portions. Most action in the downtown area is two streets across where the pub district starts so this is a lovely place to eat on a busy day. Definitely coming back again.

My parents from India were visiting US for the first time.They wanted to have chai/tea with some appetizers. We were in the area, so we decided to go to Bombay Bistro. Based on my previous visits here, I thought they would like the chai/tea and appetizers like samosa/pakoras. It was about 5:30 in the evening and the restaurant had just... More
