Wow! Amazing Indian food...

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... read 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.

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.
