We were invited for a family get together on their special night, it turned out to be an average dinner with some dishes served cold. I remember this joint served quality food not too long ago !!

Bombay Bistro is not situated in the best of places, it is in the same compound as a fuel station and car garage. We go there for lunch often, but the service is poor and the food takes a long time to come, which is not nice as most of the air conditioners are switched off and it is unpleasantly... More

went in there for dhosas only to be told that their "tawa" wasn't working. So whilst we were trying to decide what to order instead a few more tables filled up and then ordered dhosas! After which the owner came down to ask us, after we had already placed a different order, if we wanted dhosas since there was enough... More

Uncomfortable atmosphere. AC not working damn hot. Damn expensive for such category restaurant. Spicy food and non spicy all taste the same. Drinks came after we had eaten. Would not go back neither would I recommend anyone this restaurant. Total waste of money.

a restaurant in which the waiters remind you to hurry up and finish your meal as they want to close at 10 pm on a weekend!!!!!!!!!! no wonder it was all empty

Quite expensive for a lack of atmosphere and uncomfortable chairs. Quite hot as not all airconditions switched on. When we ordered a Rava Dosa it took an hour to come so this was very disappointing. Acceptable for an informal meal as long as you keep reminding the waiters of your meal.
