Excellent food, even lunch buffet

Excellent food. Buffet at lunch offers a variety of great tasting Indian food, with rotating dishes. Supper's high end & isn't cheap, but is very good. Somewhat upscale. Good for a date.

Nice atmosphere, loved the honey Indian hot tea on the buffet. Good desert choices, like fresh fruit and banana pudding, and something else that was sitting in the heat too long. I mention the deserts because, usually they are not desirable at other Indian buffet places. Refilled buffet quickly, and plentiful, and had an decent selection. My suggestion to owners... More

There's no taste in the food. It's just BLAND. Ordered Panneer Tikka masala(which should be spicy(indian spicy)), these people mixed chilli powder and served it. Couldn't eat the dish. There's no taste in both the dishes that we ordered. Panneer Tikka masala and Pav Bhaji. Very disappointed.

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in the area. Their lunch buffet is the best in town and I have yet to find anything on their menu that wasn't great!

Been there twice. Both times we were served promptly and efficiently. The food is also excellent, and the place was very clean, especially the restrooms (which are often neglected by many restaurants. Not the case here).

This is one of my favorite places. The family owned restaurant serves delicious food and has a wonderful atmosphere. David is a great host and enjoys talking with the guests. I love their donut holes in rose water :} AKA Gulab Jamun .YUMMMMMM

This is different than all of the rest of the Indian buffets in town. I have eaten here more than 10 times and only seen alloo gobi or chana masala maybe once. I haven't ever tasted anything I didn't like here and it is always changing and always freshly prepared! There are plenty of vegetarian options but also chicken at... More

My teens love Indian food since it works with their food allergies. We paid our first visit to Bombay bistro- my wife and I did the Buffett and our teens ordered off the menu (tends to be safer with allergies).

Very friendly people who are passionate about their food. My husband was convinced to get the seven star (hottest) spicy and LOVED it. He did admit next time he might get it at a five star :) I had mine at a five star hotness and loved ever bit. I'm gluten free and the owner even came to the table... More
