SO good. very authentic. I've been going there ever since they opened which was over 21 years ago! I love it there I go almost everyday. I've had almost everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. GO EAT HERE!! Also the catering service is phenomenal

“Very blah”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2008

Went there since we had a coupon. I was disappointed all due to flavor. Chicken Tikka Masala didn't even taste like Chicken Tikka Masala. Just this odd, bland and boring favor. Had another veggie dish that was okay. Onion nan was very blah and super dry. The waiters were nice enough but not overly friendly.

Oh and the rice - HOW does an Indian place mess up rice???? It was clumped together and very bad. I could make a better batch with Uncle Ben's on my stove at home. This place is so blah it is not worth going to when there are other places in Waltham that get rave reviews.

“Amazinggg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2008

This was the best indian restaurant i've been to in such a long time. I've tried so many places and all the other restaurants had nothing good to offer. A friend of mine told me about bombay mahal and said it was one of the best he had went to so i had to go try it out for myself. The people there are so friendly and the food was absolutely amazing. I'm never trying a new indian restaruant ever again.. i found my spot
i highly recommend everyone to go try it out
you will not be dissapponted!
