Indian buffet for 8 bucks

Good place near the mall. Food is average. Items included chicken tikka masala, chicken chaari, tandoori chicken etc. There was no seafood. Dessert was shahi tukra. Naan tasted very good. Price is quite fair

The food is alright. Their location in Niles is infinitely better. The buffet is usually overcooked and underspiced.

This was my first experience at an Indian restaurant. The first hostess/waitress sat us and was very "cool" - she assumed we were doing buffet for lunch but then saw I had a Groupon and said NO - you must order from menu. I explained the original groupon offer was expired so it was only valid the price I paid... More

It has been almost a year since my visit. It was the choice of another friend. All I remember is I didn't like my choice on the menu, and the carpet in the main aisle was worn out and torn.

We love this place -- we've only been to the buffet once, but it is a great deal for the price. It's also an excellent way to try new things if you aren't that familiar with Indian cuisine. We usually eat dinner there. My nine year old picks Bombay Star whenever we let him choose -- so that says something.... More

I crave this place a week after eating here. It's great. Glad to see the buffet was packed today. Always a good experience.

Overall the food was not bad. I love lamb korma, but there korma was sweeter then I like. The other flavors were good however I could have done without the sweetness. Some people in my party had never had Indian food before and the waitress was not helpful in explaining the menu to us. I would go back but some... More

I have to give The Bombay Star a lot of credit. Not only do they offer quality selections and a wonderful "stand alone" lunch and dinner menu but they also have a WONDERFUL weekend buffet, from 11-2:30pm that is priced just right. Each week you find little changes the chef made to the selections or the additions to the buffet... More

Food was beyond good. Spice was authentic and we balanced. Now my wife and I are hooked. We really enjoy the buffet and look forward to an evening that we can stop by for a wonderful meal. Please keep up the great cooking and don't stop using your imagination to come up with more delish items. Hands down, the absolute... More
