I order lunch from Bombay Chaat at least twice a week, and occasionally will go and sit in. The Goat and Shrimp curries are my favorite! I have colleagues who default to this location as our favorite Indian cuisine for staff lunches - and that's...saying a lot for picky eaters. Great restaurant, great food, consistent quality. Highly recommended !!More

This is the first time I was in a chaat place with dead animals on the menu. No doubt because the place was being run by Sri Lankans who have flocked various corners of the Universe as refugees. The chaat seemed to be an after...thought. The pani puri tasted strange. The chole tikki was a microwaved item and totally inedible. The lassi was strange. I went for lunch and there was the ubiquitous Indian buffet laid out looking totally listless and tired. Diners were piling on to it. The place also uses styrofoam which alone is the reason to avoid it. Also, there is no name outside so one has to hunt.More

Inspired by the reviews, shortlisted this restaurant for desi food while in Cleveland. Just another average eatery with poor service and very basic seating. Food was ok, nothing special.

Food is prepared fresh and mostly good. Certain items can be avoided such as the Rava dosa which came very crumbly and hard to eat. Decor could be better.

We were in town for an event two years ago and really enjoyed the food here. My daughter requested we eat here again when we returned this weekend. It was just as good the second time around. The flavors were really tasty and authentic. Food...is served hot and comes fast. I didn't order dosa, but they were huge and appeared to be very popular. We had garlic naan, chicken biriyani, chicken curry, palak paneer, daal makhani, raita, and mango lassi. On the previous visit we had chole bhatura which was also excellent. You order at the counter and they call your number to pick it up.More

Close to the hotel so tried it out. Did t have the buffet but we got simple dishes of curry and fried rice. 10 minutes to wait so not long and food was great. Probably good sign when lots of Indians were in there eating...already. Would go backMore

I really want to give this place five stars but feel I could only give it four stars do some very fixable problems with one of the most amazing lunch buffet is I have ever encountered at an Indian restaurant. Everything there was delicious. My...only complaints were the dishes where the meat contain the bones were not labeled and they could never seem to keep enough na'an on the buffet. I found it difficult to know what I was eating as they do not do a very efficient job of labeling the dishes or what ingredients they have. I took a risk, dove in and tried everything and was glad I did. Thankfully I had a friend with me who works as a chef and was able to help me navigate my food choices. If they were to add more detailed labels to the buffet items and made sure the buffet didn't run out of na'an constantly I would happily bump this to a 5/5.More

As soon as you open the door to the restaurant you are hit with the wonderful aroma of Indian cooking. My daughters and I visited Bombay Chaat before going to a play at the Playhouse. Menu has a lot of selections and you can get...your meal with different levels of Indian heat. You get lots of food for your money. I had Goat Curry and lots of leftovers for next day lunch. The goat was tender and juicy. All the dishes came out with a very hot temperature. You order your meal at the counter and they call your number from the receipt when your dish is ready. Highly recommend Bombay Chaat for great Indian food.More

Authentic indian food, with some specialities from South India. Really tasty and more than abundant. We have been there twice in a week, and tried different dishes, and all were really tasty.
