Frozen Food Ok , Customer Service So So

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... read more

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

I don't know how this place doesn't rate higher. Just went for the first time for the lunch buffet and we will definitely be returning soon. Everything was delicious, hot, and fresh. The service was prompt and the staff was very friendly. The tandoori chicken was killer. Everything was spiced to perfection, having an appropriate kick but not overpowering the... More

Wanting to venture into a new cuisine, I tried Bombay Bistro. The hostess knew I was a novice and I was taking this home and guided me on ordering the most popular items on the menu. The cubed chicken in a tomato cream sauce was ok, however the deep fried breaded vegetables were so hot and spicy that it ruined... More

I am huge fan of Asian Indian food and visited here by someone recombination but it's huge disappointment. Food was very greasy and spicy. I ordered medium I felt I was eating only jalapeño peppers. Service way slow. Place decor seems like on 1900. Fpod was just not up to par what I am used to eat in big cities.... More

I found this to be a really good local restaurant. Nothing special in terms of ambiance as this is a typical strip mall restaurant but the food is really good. Give this one a try.

We were publicly humiliated by the waitress during lunch. My daughter had spilled rice on the floor, she is one year old. We were told that we were "wrecking the place" because our walking over the rice would cause them to have to clean their carpet. She then proceeded to "help us" by moving our children, and running a bistle... More

I ate here in late July while in Fayetteville on business. The service was excellent, owner greeted many guests by name and was quite friendly. I ordered the Pakora (sp?) vegetable dumplings and they were extremely spicy. The Chicken Curry was delicious, just the right amount of heat. Garlic Nan was hot and very good. Portion size was very generous.... More

I love this guys samosa's, especially the next morning. They are not spicy and they are just the right type of greasy and the crust is not really hard. Oh yeah, when they ask if you want spicy, it is spicy. You also get a bunch a food, I ordered a biriyani and it was chocked full of good stuff... More
