“Cheap and Cheerful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We visited Bombay Cafe after reading an article in an Orlando magazine. We were not disappointed.

we found it hard to find decent indian places to eat in Orlando but we were glad to find this one.

When we went the first time, there were many Indians eating here, which is always a good sign. We ordered a mixture of dishes on the first visit, the food was very good, and the service is quick too.

The food is so much cheaper compared to other indian restaurants around Orlando, it is tucked away in a dingy plaza though, however it didn't take away from how good the food was and the fact that it was so cheap.

Would definitely recommend this place to people who want good indian food.

“Very Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

My children and I ventured here during our trip to the Magic Kingdom. The food was very tasty, fresh, authentic and reasonably priced. We ordered a wide variety from the menu and were not disappointed with any of our selections.

The restaurant is a total hole in the wall, setback in a strip mall of sorts. The bathrooms for the restaurant were in the hallway, and part of the common space of the building not integral to the restaurant. I expected them to be a mess, but they were completely serviceable.

Restaurant is adjacent to large Indian market called House of Spices, which was worth a trip in and of itself.

I hate to give away the names of good restaurants because I want to keep them for myself, but it doesn't seem fair really.

Highly recommend Bombay Cafe.

“Great restaurant for take out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We ordered for take out. There was seating place, but we chose to do take out. They were very quick. We went in and added to our order and even that was brought out to us very quickly.

“Excellent Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

This is really a very excellent restaurant. It is only vegetarian. My sister and I are such big carnivores we wanted to walk out when we heard this but stayed because we didn't want to offend anyone.

Couldn't be HAPPIER that we did!

We didn't understand a word on the menu but the people at the counter were very helpful in guiding us.

Ordered
-Samosas- Big puffy fried triangles filled with curried potato and peas. Excellent
-Garlic Naan- Big flat bread with puffy air holes in it and garlic on top. Great
-Paneer Chilli- Our favorite of the night. Lightly fried cottage cheese platter. The whole idea of doing this is just plain ingenious. Tasted JUST like chicken and so much better than tofu. We were extremly surprised that something without meat could be so solidly tasty that we didn't miss it.
-Paneer 65- Very good but not as good as the Paneer Chilli
-Chai tea- Not bad but different. Tasted like hot water with some milk thrown in and Indian spices.
-Some vegetable balls served in a sweetish coconut curry sauce with white rice. Very good. Dont remember the name.

Don't let the fact that it's in a shady area fool you. Food is simply superior. They give you a lot for the $. Quality is great and we will be coming back first chance!

“Good so far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2011

I went to the Bombay Cafe this past weekend for the first time. Found it by accident when I went to pick up some spices and movies at the other stores in the building. I ordered Dum Aloo Chettinad - Very good and flavorful. My husband had Kathi Roll and Missal Pav and enjoyed them both. The service was good and friendly. The cafe was clean, well lit and quiet. I look forward to going back and trying more dishes!
