“Massive improvement. A truly too notch experience”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I wrote a bad review of Bombay club about 18 months ago. And did they deserve it. Tired food, snotty attitude, and high prices. Came back with friends reluctantly last week and was floored by the improvements in every area. The decor and ambience appear to have been lightened a bit while maintaining a very upscale feel. The food is where the real improvement is. Clearly they're drawing on sister restaurant rasika's menu. The paneer kebab, the duck curry, the chicken mankhanwala are all heads and shoulders above anything in the city. The kale salad appetizer is a classic and just delicious. The service was perfect: gracious friendly and attentive. A five star experience.

“A gem”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Always a great treat, the Bombay Club continues to provide exquisite Indian cuisine in a beautiful setting. The service complements the meal -- attentive to detail without being intrusive or overbearing.

“Nice experience”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went there for my birthday dinner. The highlight was the wonderful melody of Happy Birthday played by the pianist. Food was very good. Atmosphere was excellent. There is a classy, modern feel to the place. I would certainly recommend it for a nice evening complimented by Indian food.

“The Golden Thali”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This restaurant was simply awesome. After a hot day in Washington visiting all the cites, we came upon this restaurant where we could just relax and enjoy the food. The atmosphere was welcoming and the service was prompt. All these factors combined with the great food on offer summed up to be one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. Definitely recommend a visit!

“Superb atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is one of the best Indian restaurants we've found outside the subcontinent. They will try to appeal to the non-initiated, so tell the waiter that you really like spicy, and insist that they bring you hot sauce in addition to what is already in the dishes (and get pickles, raita, of course). But perhaps even more than the food, what you get here is old-world service, with well-trained waiters. Pricy, maybe but an excellent night out. If you have guests, the "cobra coffee" is a great conversation piece.
