Great for lunch, not so much for dinner

For lunch I highly recommend this restaurant. They have an extremely diverse buffet of incredible Indian food to choose from. the service is good and attentive. The dinner here is a 50/50. the food is incredibly good, but for the value i would not suggest it. the average dish price is around $15... read more

The dinner here is a 50/50. the food is incredibly good, but for the value i would not suggest it. the average dish price is around $15, with smaller than average serving sizes.

I really love this place! Fresh food, friendly owners, and wonderful decor. If you had to pick one Indian restaurant in Fayetteville, this would be the place for you! We will definitely be back. I had the kadai lamb (spicy) and my better half had the chicken beryani (spicy). Some places advertise "spicy" but it's pretty mild. This is NOT... More

My co-workers and I eat @ Bombay Bistro for lunch and have the buffet at least twice a month. I have yet to have had a bad meal there. The buffet choices are far fewer than other Indian restaurants I have eaten at, but the dishes that are prepared are always worth a second trip to the bar. The owners... More

I had never tried Indian food prior to coming to this restaurant and after eating there I can now say that I am an Indian food lover!! The food is fresh and very tasty. The restaurant is very small, but tastefully decorated. The service is really good as well. The chilly coconut chicken is my favorite along with the masala... More

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.
