“outstanding indian food at a very nice price...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

we come here for years already. the surroundings of Leidseplein being crowded with a lot of 'so-so' restaurants, this is a place we love to visit. a family business, obviously, in look and feel.

“Attitude problem”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been a fan of Bombay inn in the past but off late have realised they don't really have any intention of customer satisfaction. Three times in the last 3-4 months I have gone there only to be turned away. Excuse being they need reservation when the restaurent was completely empty.
I would advise people avoid this place as it is simply not worth the trouble.

“Not the best in Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Bombay Inn was just ok. The food was ok but with so many excellent Indian restaurants in Amsterdam I would go for a different one. Also, they have a sitcker on door saying that they accept Visa cards but when you want to pay the machine is broken.

“Horrible Case of Racial Profiling”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We were walking around Leidseplein square in search of a decent Indian restaurant and found this one according to our budget and liking. We entered this place but were refused entry on grounds that they operated only on prior reservations. We saw that there were a few tables empty and were quite puzzled. We stood outside for a few more minutes when we saw a local couple walk in just like us and they were given a table. I realised there was something wrong maybe because we were Indians. When i went into the restaurant again to challenge him, he was dumbfounded and had no answer. Instead he offered us a table 1 hour later. We said we werent interested and walked into another neighbouring Indian restaurant Maurya. Please try this place at your own discretion.

“Delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A small Indian restaurant near Leidseplein. Although the atmosphere is a little bit like a living room, the food is really tasteful and prices are very affordable. We have been going here for ten years and never had a bad meal. Love their chicken saag. Our children eat it too, since it's not that spicy.
