“Wonderful fusion food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I went to Bombay Wok with two friends to celebrate a birthday. It is a small place, set off the highway in a strip mall. So we didn't expect the wonderful food and service that we did experience. The menu is eclectic, with the blended Indian and Chinese, as well as Thai. We ordered the Caulifower Manchurian dry, which were wonderful balls of cauliflower in a flavorful sauce. My favorite dish was the Vegetable Manchurian, which turned out to balls that looked like meat balls, but were vegetables, again in a wonderful sauce. We also had the Bombay Wok Special, a combination of rice and noodles, very unusual and delicious. We ordered the mango kulfi for dessert, which was good, but since it was a birthday the server brought it out on a plate with an addition of Casata ice cream for us to try; we loved it. They had also written a Happy Birthday message in red icing, and added a candle. The server was lovely, and answered our many questions as best she could.

“Bombay is right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I say it in most of my reviews, service and good people are as important as the food! Great service.

If you are craving bombay style Chinese food street, spicy and variety. This is the place. One of the only places where they have a good selection of vegetarian appetizers. The sizzler was really good.

“Very Good Indian-Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Visited this place with a Groupon coupon and was very satisfied with the vegetarian experience. Had ordered starter, soup and entree. They should work on the quantities a bit for shared dishes. One-dish meals looked sufficient for a person. Definitely visiting again.

“love bombay wok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

what can I say...love this restaurant.All the dishes I've tried are awesome.My favorite being Schezuan chicken,Veg hakka noodles,Chilli chicken dry and veg fried rice.The only dish that has probably not been 10/10 is the lotus stem honey chilli.Very chewy and hard.
This satisfies my indo-chinese craving to the T. Remember this cuisine is quite unlike the chinese fare here in US!If you go expecting the orange chicken,general tso's chicken,you will be disappointed.Go with an open mind and a new world cuisine awaits!

“Great experience, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We were a little skeptical after seeing some of the reviews here, but all our friends told us to give it a try, we are glad we did, the food was very flavorful and to our liking, we requested mild for the kids and it was mild. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The picture here is not of this location so dont go looking for that. We were glad that they served authntic indo-chinese, indo-thai food and not a mess like others in the area who serve everything. for the other person who wrote they wanted naan, FYI thats like going to a steakhouse and asking for pancakes with your sirloin. Naan does not go with indo-chinese, though this location does serve fusion tandoor now.We will be regulars for sure.
