This place is great for really good Indian food. The owner and his wife are usually working the tables and have lots of good info. The menu is extensive from goat to seafood. They give you lots of food and I have never been disappointed with a meal there.

Great flavors, very friendly people, lots of food for your money. Great Indian wines. If you haven't tried Bollywood Masala you should.

At a gathering of family and friends we decided on this restaurant after several in our party expressed a desire for Indian food. Every appetizer, entree, and side dish was flavorful and enjoyed by all. Portions were good, especially as we shared across the spectrum of young children to elders and everyone was full and satisfied! Service was good and... More

The service was good, they checked in on us frequently, and the food was superb. My fiancee had never had Indian food, and she loved it! The atmosphere was very nice, pretty quiet and had nice music playing. Expect a hefty bill for larger parties, but honestly I felt it was worth it.

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.

I was ignored by 3 waiters that were working my area of the dining area. Yes. I am a particular diner. I expect atleast an acknowledgement with in the first 10 minutes. That didn't happen. I should have known to leave right then, but I had a craving. The staff kept passing me over because they were fawning all over... More

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
