This place is just top-notch. Never a bad meal, nor bad service. If you go during the week for lunch, the buffet is an awesome value, with free all-you-can-eat Naan. Fresh and plenty of variety of the good stuff, not the uncommon, less popular dishes. Buttered chicken is delish! Evening more expensive (no buffet, Naan not free), but still worth... More

Our Favorite Restaurant in Franklin by far! From appetizer to desert the experience is friendly, quick and yummy! I haven't put any food into my mouth that I have not enjoyed. I would say that I would appreciate it if they would bring down their prices a bit, but other than that this place ROCKS!

Have only been for the lunch buffet, but it is ALWAYS delicious. They mix out the menu, so it is not uncommon to go one day and then return and enjoy almost a totally different group of options. They are all delicious. There are vegetarian and meat choices, and generally a good mix of spicy and mild. There are always... More

We stopped in on a whim since we hadn't had Indian in some time. We tried the buffet hoping for some good variety of standard traditional dishes. Our biggest disappointment - especially for my wife - was the lack of any paneer offerings. The other items were decent but very mildly seasoned. Not one thing (and we tried all of... More

Once again, we had the delicious lunch buffet. Great food, good service, nice manager. BUT, as mentioned in previous reviews, the are no sneeze guards covering the vast array of foods on the buffet line. You would think that the health department would have some rules regarding this. Get the sneeze guards, and get 5 stars instead of 3.

I've taken several people here who have never had Indian food before. The food is not too spicy, the lunch buffet has a nice variety that has never had the same exact items two times in a row. A nice change from fast food or from having to cook.

One of the things I missed most when I moved from London to Nashville was great Indian food...heck, I'd settle for good Indian food! Having searched - and tried - most Indian fare in and around Nashville I settled on Bombay palace (on west end blvd) as my go-to place to satisfy my craving for sag paneer, Dahl, chicken korma...

One of my Indian coworkers took me here after work one evening. It was really good and I wanted to eat everything on the menu. Started with the pani puri and it was tasty. The chicken tandoori was good too, but not a stand-out. Rich flavors and they spice to order (a six was perfect for me). The service was... More
