“Strip Mall Gem”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is one of those great unassuming hole in the wall restaurants. The décor is funny, the space is crowded and there is often a wait, but if you want an authentic Indian experience, that is exactly what you will get. Fresh food for a great price.

“The Battle of the Indian Buffets continues.............”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Well last time we visited Boise we ended up at Bombay Grille, this time Madhuban. Wow, different, but similar. This place is smaller, tables very crowded, no inside waiting area to speak of. And wait you must here, very busy for lunch. Our wait was only 5 minutes, you have to make your way all the way to the back to get on the list, so basically bumping into diners and those in line for the buffet. The selection was good, several chicken, a lamb, vegi, salads and desert items. All tastey.
But because it is so busy, the items are always a little behind in getting refilled.
You get your fill here for only $7.99, quite a bargan.
I must say I give the edge to Bombay Grille for the atmosphere, and taste, despite the $10 price.
Either way, what a great opportunity for a place like Boise. Come get some.

“Award Winning Food”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is my favorite Indian restaurant. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. Every day they have a buffet from 11am till around 2:30 pm. If you get there after 12pm there will probably be a wait because it is very popular. They have even won best Indian food in Boise once or twice. The only drawback is the restaurant is pretty small so they really have to squeeze the tables close to eachother to fit the demand.

“Madhuban creates Mad Cravings For More”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Nothing fancy just delicious. We've been regular customers for over a decade. I think this is the 3rd set of owners and the quality of the service remains fair. They have no wine you want to drink but you will want to go back for another meal. And Another. The Chana MAsala, the Fish Pakora, The Naan and my own favorite the Mughlai Saag are all outstanding. The tandoori is as good as you will find. The new paint job and lights makes the dining room far more pleasant though its still nothing fancy just a tiny room in a strip mall. Mild medium, Boise Hot, New york Hot or Bombay hot are you choices. we usually get 1 dish at Boise and 1 at New York. The Bombay is a bit beyond what we enjoy
