3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had seen the weekday discounts and thought the Indian food would still be inexpensive on the weekend. I went with my family on a Saturday and it was pricey for the small amount of food you got. I had some kind of chicken and rice dish that was flavored with curry and a bit too spicy. My wife had... More

The new location is open and bright. The food is spiced and cooked properly. It's delicious. The service is professional and courteous, down to earth and avoids stuffiness. We loved taking out from the old location. This location is worth sitting down and enjoying dinner and drinks. Two thumbs up.

The food is so delicious. However, the service is just terrible. Sadly, this isn't even the first time the service was bad. It is consistently twrrible. My advice, order your food and carry out.

I've been eating at Bollywood for a few years now and I can say it is my favorite restaurant in St. Mary's County. I don't think I've ever had one thing I didn't love. My personal favorites are the Chicken Bollywood and the Chicken Makhani Madras. Everything is always flavorful and fresh. It's such a nice change from the overkill... More

Bolluwood had just moved to this new location across from Wildwood center. I had the weekday buffet for around $10. Most selections were gluten free. There were 2 sections of food. I liked the chicken curry and the bread brought to the table. The proud owner's wife makes alot of the food herself.

While the food is good, the atmosphere is horrible in the new location. LOUD. Really poor acoustics. Service is slow. Took almost an hour to get our simple order for two. We waited a while to visit the new location to give them time to work the kinks out. Probably won't be back as regular customers.

I'm not surprised that the food taste great. I kept looking at the owner and it turns out that we have eaten at two of his other restaurants in the past. I'm bias because we love Indian food, so much so that we can eat it everyday for a week - which we have. This place is great. The only... More

We went on a Sunday evening. We made reservations, but probably did not need to, as the restaurant was not full. However, we had been on a Friday night and it was packed! I hate waiting more than 15 min for a table so we left on that occasion. Our servers immediately came with drink orders, warm hand towels and... More
