Good Indian restaurant

Good food, fast service and friendly staff. There are many good Indian restaurants in Franklin and Brentwood. I would recommend this one and we would go again.

This is different than all of the rest of the Indian buffets in town. I have eaten here more than 10 times and only seen alloo gobi or chana masala maybe once. I haven't ever tasted anything I didn't like here and it is always changing and always freshly prepared! There are plenty of vegetarian options but also chicken at... More

My teens love Indian food since it works with their food allergies. We paid our first visit to Bombay bistro- my wife and I did the Buffett and our teens ordered off the menu (tends to be safer with allergies). While the owner devoted a lot of attention to our party making sure we didn't share any of the buffet... More

Very friendly people who are passionate about their food. My husband was convinced to get the seven star (hottest) spicy and LOVED it. He did admit next time he might get it at a five star :) I had mine at a five star hotness and loved ever bit. I'm gluten free and the owner even came to the table... More

A large menu, and they'll prepare your meal anywhere fro 1* heat (bland) to 7* ( which left my mouth BLAZING!) the owner is happy to work with customers to meet dietary needs (such as gluten free). they sell beer and wine. Nice decoration, clean, with average to above service. We will go back! They can be booked on open... More

I've eaten many variations of Indian food in many cities around the world, but I haven't found better Indian than what they serve up at Bombay Bistro in Franklin! The quality of the food is a step up from most Indian restaurants, yet the price is reasonable. Lunch buffet offers a great variety and the quality does not suffer with... More

A beautiful Indian cuisine venue. Great selection of mostly Northern Indian fare, with an amazing selection of Chat choices that you almost never see offered anywhere else. Elegant atmosphere without being stuffy, casual dress without having the risk of lessening the experience. Open to the whole family, though as a customer, I wish a few of the other patrons would...

We stopped for lunch on a Saturday and the restaurant was busy. We asked our server for recommendations and we followed them. The meal was excellent and flavorful. Dave was very helpful. We will return.

We live close to this restaurant and love to go to the lunch buffet every week. The chaats are always mouthwatering and filling. The naans are hot and fresh and the vegetarian gravies are not too spicy and packed full of vegetables.They do not scrounge on the paneer!The sweets are a hit and miss, I like them one week and...
