Whether eating in or taking out, our family has always enjoyed the food prepared here at Bombay Bistro. We've been regulars for more than five years and have rarely been disappointed. Chicken Tikka Makhani and Tandoori Chicken, with Raita, Dal and several Naans are our go-to selections.

Stopped in with a couple good friends about a month ago, and we absolutely loved the place. Really cozy feel, and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I've been eating Indian for years, and have been known to be a picky eater, but we were all blown away by the flavors and spices at this place! The Chicken Tikka... More

I used to come here several years ago and haven't been back in a while. Everything was fresh and delicious - the naan was flaky, the Thali was delicious, Sag Paneer was fresh and lively. I look forward to my next visit!

Bombay Bistro started a late night menu on Wed & Thurs nights and it is amazing! Aside from Silver Diner, previously there simply was no other food available in Rockville past 10pm, so to be able to get delicious and authentic Indian food at that time is a total game changer. The place was packed, and the food came out... More

Popped in for lunch the other day with some friends. Had the buffet. Definitely a buy! Tons of options for vegans an vegetarians, and the kitchen was super helpful when I had questions. Huge fan of the saag dish. Their roti is vegan! :^)

I've been going to this place for about 10 years. The food is always delicious, the service is always great. I tend to like the lamb vindaloo the best, but whatever you do, don't miss out on the Saag paneer

I'm a fan of Indian food and have tried several other Rockville and Bethesda Indian restaurants. While there are many good options, Bombay Bistro is my favorite. It has good, flavorful Indian food at a reasonable price. And the service is stellar. They literally never let your water glass run empty, which is important when you're eating spicy food! My...

Yesterday was our 3rd visit in last year or so to this place. and it was good though not as good as the first 2 times (probably because our expectations were high). we ordered 'Spinanch -mango chaat' which was not good (it was awesome in first 2 visits). we ordered Veg Biryani it was as good as ever.

I was in town on business for the week and first saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor and was impressed by the reviews. The front desk person at the hotel I was staying also mentioned it was good so I decided to try it. Boy am I glad I did. Sunday night I sat in for a la carte, and Friday... More

This is a small place which has been open for over twenty years in a small shopping mall. It is family operated and offers very well prepared curry and other indian food, including some interestingly made whole fish. It has a popular lunch buffet and at dinner it is often very crowded based upon its popularity with locals.
