“Still excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Over the years this place is still one of the best in the DC area. Eat next to the kitchen. Most dishes are excellent. Lamb vindaloo - very nice. Awesome naan.

“Authentic Indian food right at your finger tips!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Just had dinner here today. I sure love going to this place, the owner is super friendly but the wait staff don't speak much English so that makes things hard sometimes. The food is amazing, well seasoned and succulent! This Is by far one of the best in the dc area. My friend ordered for us and everything was good from the curry mussel appetizer to the chicken tikki! Highly recommend for small groups. Enjoy!

“Still as good as ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We met a friend at Bombay Bistro for a delightful meal and chat. The service was attentive, the menu broad and the food delicious. The roti and paratha were just right, the chicken tikka was really tasty and both the okra and spicy shrimp were good as well. As a neighborhood restaurant, we are privileged to have it available to us in Rockville.

“Good food and service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

There are better Indian eateries but they cost more and you have to go to Bethesda to get to the one that I know.
