Bombay Bistrow is located in a very good location in Fairfax with easy access and parking. We visited the place on Christmas eve, found many clientels enjoying their dinner. We ordered lamb vindaloo, dosa and chicken curry, tasted better than average as experienced with the Indian restaurant scene in DC metro area. We also ordered ice cream as dessert, which... More

For a Great curry Masala try out the Bombay Bistro located in city of Fairfax. The scrumptious taste of their curry wont disappoint you and is my most favorite here.

We have been customers for years, and a couple of years ago began to feel that the place was coasting on its reputation. That caused us to look at alternatives. Then lo and behold, things started to change. Several dishes were modified and freshened. Service remains excellent.

Outside is not much to look at but the food (if you like Indian) and the service are very good. Good portions but if you are not a fan of spicy, ask for advice.

Bombay Bistro is one of the family favorites. Their food is very tasty and one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to. Their menu has many options and has gluten-free options.

It started Ok. We ordered samosa. Every restaurant gives you two as one order. This restaurant gives you one as one order so you have to order two if there are two of you. That was it, than an exceedingly long wait for the entries while they filled large take out orders. Another couple entered the restaurant after we had... More

There are at least two other Indian restaurants in the City of Fairfax; this one wins hands down. The food is excellent, the staff's attention is just right, and the prices are very reasonable. We go here regularly and the food is uniformly great. We have never had an "okay" meal, let alone bad. The parking garage is very convenient... More

Went for lunch for business. The variety of food was excellent. The owner Jaspal Singh was very welcoming. I particularly enjoyed the chicken tikka masala and the lamb curry. Hot naan was brought to the table. Not only was the variety good but the quality was excellent.

We love to visit this restaurant any chance we get to go back home to Fairfax to visit. We have been going here for years. I'm not sure if it's my age catching up to me but the food seemed a bit spicier this last visit. We are vegetarians and always get the vegetarian Tali which is a combination vegetarian... More

This place was a quaint place with a peaceful ambiance and a décor that matched the type of food which is Indian. We got there when the dinner hour just started we were the only ones there. The several different ratings they've gotten since the 90's such as Zagat etc..over the years were proudly lined up on the windows so... More
