We stumbled on this place by accident on our way back to Dallas from San Antonio!! The attraction for us was that it offered both North Indian and South Indian fare. However, as soon as we entered the restaurant, we found that they offered a Thali meal at $9.99 per head. The menu was limited but high on taste and... More

I went for lunch and enjoyed their daily special. It was so tasty and I cannot wait to go back. My husband ordered something that looked like a big flat triangular shaped bread and shared. The flavors were magical. I am awaiting my next adventure.

The staff was very helpful, but this wasn't my cup of tea. I wasn't familiar with the menu. My order was suggested by the cashier. I didn't enjoy any of it.

We especially like to go on weekends when they have the vegetarian thaali on the menu. The dosas are huge and delicious.

Bombay express is one of the popular spots for vegetarian Indian cuisine. It is located at the intersection of IH 35 and Parmer lane. This cafe is my go to spot for quick bites in the evening. The menu is composed of chaats(savoury snack), north/south Indian treats, and thalis. A lot of vegan choices available too.These are my favourite picks... More

The taste of the food can take you on the greatest journey back to a simpler time. The food is what I remember from my visits to my relatives in Bombay. The Dosa and paneer sandwich are just outstanding. The owners are great people and they work hard to make you meal as you want it to be.

The food was awesome at this restaurant. Nothing fancy about the place but if you're looking for good Indian/Vegan food, this is the place.

Went there specifically since it was a pure veg restaurant. Tried their signature dosa. Had average tasting filling. The sambhar was good however. We also tried khasta kachori and dahi Batata puri both average at best. They should not be serving ras malai. Appeared to be rasgullas dipped in sweet milk. Will likely not return.

They have northern and southern Indian specialties. The daily special is terrific! Everything was tasty and seemed exotic. The Sosa was delicate and sumptuous!
