“Excellent restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food - our first visit to this restaurant and very impressed. More authentic than the nearby Ganges. Good sized main dishes but could have done with slightly larger portions of rice. Good efficient service. Nice atmosphere with most tables taken. Will certainly go back. Only minor criticism is that there wasn't much sign of paneer in the saag paneer but both main course were great.

“Very good food cooked with skill and served with elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

My wife and I had a main course at Bokhara last week and we found it to be a very good spot to eat. The decor was well thought out, the staff were very courteous and professional and the food was cooked with skill. I would definitely go back for a meal.

“Not bad but could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Fairly average food, we have got carryouts a few times but the food varies to much from very bland to average, now fed up with spending a lot of money and taking a gamble. We now travel a 20 mile return trip to get a good Indian carryout.

Nothing special in my opinion
