Great food at good price

I don't understand the other negative reviews for this place. I eat at Indian places once a week and this one is one of the best. Compared to the other Indian buffets I've been to, this one has more choices and is cheaper. The food at Indian buffets is pretty much the same at all of them. This... read more

We purchased a Restaurant.com $50 certificate for this establishment because we were going to be in Charleston for a weekend of business. When we arrived at the building, the place was closed, no notice, no nothing. Needless to say, this calls for a negative review.

We kind of stumbled upon this restaurant. I wanted to use a gift certificate that I had received on restaurant.com and starting looking at the restaurants that were available in the Charleston, SC area. I spotted Bollywood Café, looked at the menu, and suggested to my wife that we give this place a try. From the moment we walked in...great... More

The food was fresh, tasty and very reasonable for large portions. We had mango lassi drinks, cheese naan, chicken tikka mansala and madras chicken. Everything was very good and our server was friendly, warm and entertaining. Great Indian in a Charleston!

The food in the steamer tray was cold as well as the steamer. I mean refrigerator cold. The rice was warm but didn't taste good. Charged $2.00 for a small soda or sweet tea. I hate to have someone stand next to my table and watch me eat. That might be nice in India, but we are here. We tried... More

This was the freshest Indian food I have ever had. The spices tasted freshly roasted from the spice market and the chicken and vegetables werereally tasty. Most indian food tastes like it has been setting around for a day or two but not this! I asked for spicy and they did give it to me.... the waiter was really nice... More

This review is not about the food of this place because we never got that far, even after spending more than one and a half hour waiting for the food. Here we go: We walk in at about 7:30 ish, four tables are occupied, we stand and wait to be seated. After 5 minutes or so, a lady notices us... More
