You can't go wrong with the lunch buffet at Bombay. Really nice operation they have. Authentic east Indian chef prepares the food. Very clean and friendly staff. Located across from the Sonic's on Cliffdale Rd. My best advice is, if you are going to have the lunch buffet, get there shortly after 1100 because the seating fills up pretty quickly.... More

Our family have been coming to the Bombay Bistro since the day they opened. They serve the best Indian food in Fayetteville and the owners/staff are always friendly and accommodating. When the owners have time, they do make an effort to greet their customers and chat with them. They are definitely not racist, by no means. If you want great... More

Tandoori Naan is never prepared during the day for the last 10 years. This is a very small local restaurant. We try our very best to acccomodate each and every customer, but sadly sometimes we cannot. This in no way makes the owners and staff racist.

We have been patrons of Bombay bistro for years and thoroughly enjoy the food. The owners are friendly and welcoming. We always see regulars there and this speaks for itself. Love the Saturday buffet and wonderful variety!

They served pita bread for naan! It's extra if you wanted to eat traditional indian bread. I think they are racists, as their service and treatment is based on skin color! If the food in the buffet is cold or nearly over you better keep quiet. Else be prepared for a rude encounter.

Freshness of food OK! (Majority can food or frozen). Service OK! Nothing special about it but since there are just 2 Indian restaurants in Fayetteville-Fort Bragg area you are out of LUCK and CHOICE. I still pick Shalimar on Raeford Road over this restaurant. If you dont like any of them then THE BEST OPTION is Raleigh, Cary area... http://www.rtpindia.com/directory/restaurants.htm

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in Fayetteville, and Indian restaurant in general. I've had Indian all over the country, and this place is among the most authentic I've ever been to! The buffet is fabulous! It changes everyday and has plenty for vegetarians and carnivores alike! Also, often there are vegan and gluten free options on the buffet,... More

Bombay Bistro is where I go for "comfort food." Everything on the menu is tasty, and the chef will adjust the "heat" of your spices to the level you request. Service is always prompt, the owner is always friendly, and the beer is always cold. If you haven't tried Indian food and aren't sure what to get, ask the owner,... More
