“Very authentic Indian cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

I was staying close by. Tried the restaurant. It was surprisingly very good. The portions served was also perfect not too less ar very large . One evening we came in late however they obliged us by giving us a very quick and tasty dinner. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to have north Indian cuisine.

“Lovely last night in YVR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

My husband and I, went to Salam Bombay on our last night in Vancouver and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service given.
We arrived after 2100 but we're welcomed in and asked where we would prefer to sit - we chose the table in the corner of the windows overlooking Burrard St.
The service was second to none and the food was delicious!
This restaurant is well worth a visit at any time of the day.
Thank you again for making our last night wonderful.

“The Pumpkin in Yogurt Sauce alone makes this worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

We wandered in for the lunch buffet. It is quite good with a nice variety of dishes. But then we found the pumpkin in yogurt sauce - something we have never seen before in an Indian restaurant - and discovered a magnificent dish - tasty, well spiced and pumpkin pieces that were cooked without being mushy.
The flavours and spices here are nicely balanced.
The rice pudding for desert is creamy, spicy and has a silky flavour that slides through the taste buds and on down the throat far too easily.
The one disaspointment was the chai - under spiced making it not much more than milk tea.

“Excellent Late Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Our group of six arrived at the restaurant shortly before 3 PM after a busy day of travel, and we were famished. We were delighted to find Salaam Bombay not only open but welcoming to a group wanting lunch at that hour.
We were given a lovely table right by a window, and our waiter was prompt and professional. Everything that we ordered was attractively served and absolutely delicious. We all agreed that the Samosas were the best ever! The three main dishes, three types of Naan and two portions of rice ordered were enough to completely satisfy our hungry group. Cold Kingfisher beers proved to be the perfect accompaniment to our tasty lunch!
Salaam Bombay is worth a visit if you are looking for yummy Indian food in Downtown Vancouver.

“Dee-licious Indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

One of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten. Tried their Masala pakoras, malai kabab, Daal, Saag Panir, Chettinad curry, butter chicken and the rice and naan. Every dish was prepared well and tasty. Dined here 2 nights and was really impressed. Very clean place, very friendly service and convenience by location are all just bonus. Of the 6 days we were here on our concierge recommendation we tried another Indian restaurant. dollar 10 cab each ways with disappointment. Well if you find one good, stick with it.
