“A nice place to taste Indian Cuisine - in Vancouver DT Canada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Salam Bombay is situated in Vancouver Downtown -cnr of Robson St and Burrad Street. Primarily they serve Indian cuisine. Food is very good and value for money. Their Tandoori chicken and Nans are superb. Please add raita in your dish. I strongly recommend that if you have not tasted Indian food please do visit them to have Lunch Buffett to start with. It costs around $16.50 plus taxes. Excellent value for money and quality food. No matter if you are a vegan or non vegan price is same and offer good choices for both. I wished to see some Indian sweets being offered but that will probably add the price tag at the disadvantages of people who do not like sweet. Service is reasonable and for Buffet I do not care. However do not expect the sexy waiters to be like in KEG or Hooters and they are all male. If you want good quality food and do not go by genders of the waiters. Salam Bombay has very good waiters. A la carte dishes are also very nice. I took my office teams many teams to have group lunches, took visitors and dined with own family. Hollistically looking they are not flashy but clean, quality and reasonably priced. Coming from Australia we normally pay $35 in Perth for the same food and still of not the same quality like Salam Bombay. One warning - do not expect to get any typical Bombay foods but primarily North Indian Food. No dosa , no dokhla, no Pao Bhaji, No Bhel Puris, no vadas, no papadams, no laddus .
Unfortunately Trip Advisor selection is very skewed. I wanted to tick all the areas - like with family, solo, friends, and business. But there is a single choice . further when did you visit - I wanted to tick - several times but it allowed one choice only - probably last visit.

“A Good Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food is very much Indian, if you are conscious about 'Halaal' food then you do not need to worry.

Try out the Biryani its pretty good also if you are one of those who like to drink a milk tea made the Indian way rather than a dip tea you will not be disappointed.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had a terrific meal at Salam Bombay. We were able to choose a spicy meal and a mild meal, guided by wonderful servers. The service is excellent, as is the food. If you're downtown and want to true authentic Indian cuisine, Salam Bombay is definitely worth a try.
