In a week of endless lobster, we craved Indian. Bombay Mahal was very good. A gorgeous summer evening, we sat outside. Having had gastric sleeve surgery, I can only eat small portions. Their appetizer tikka Masala was perfect as an entree, and very nicely done. My companion's lamb vindaloo was spicy but not flaming. A good meal at a reasonable... More

We had a wonderful meal at Bombay Mahal. We've been to a number of Indian restaurants in New York City, where we live, and other cities in the US and abroad and this is one of the best we've been to. The sauces are very fresh and well-spiced, including the tamarind sauce on the table. We recommend the fish curry,... More

We found Bombay Mahal on Trip Advisor as we do most restaurants in cities/towns we are new to. Raj, the owner came over to our table, introduced himself and was very gracious we were there. The food was perfectly spiced and so flavorful. A must for anyone in the area. Thank you Raj for your excellent customer service. The decor... More

We discovered this restaurant about 20 years ago and every chance we get, we go here. The staff is so polite and kind, the food is extremely delicious and fresh. In the wintertime, we go once a week! The buffet is always changing and always excellent. We just love Bombay Mahal! Five Stars All Round! We are away for a... More

One of the best curry houses I've experienced in the U.S. Chicken Madras was very enjoyable as was the Sag Paneer. When in Brunswick, I try to have at least one meal here. Outdoor dining available when the weather is pleasant.

Neither my husband or I wanted to cook. We'd both had long days full of extra work. We looked at each other and said let's go out to eat. Peter said Indian. I said Bombay Mahal. As we. walked into the restaurant we were greeted by our favorite waiter he brought Masala to the table. We began a quiet relaxing... More

Went on a Saturday morning. Apparently they serve a buffet at this time. The selection was ok, but I think they could offer a greater variety especially more vegetarian options for the price. The chicken options were really good and I would go back, but maybe not for the buffet. I would also recommend their mango lasse.

When you're asked too many times if the food is satisfactory, and you know that they don't want to hear other than praise, that's when you wish you could just leave, without paying, without saying a word, because not only will you not be coming back, they know you won't be coming back. The proclaimed "hospitality" was perfunctory. There was... More
