“Frequent Flyers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

My husband and I have eaten here several times and will keep coming back for more. This is a charming Indian restaurant with great food. They offer a great lunch buffet and excellent dinner service. When you order off the dinner menu, you can choose your level of spiciness from 0 - 10. The waiters bring you water frequently because your mouth is going to need it! Don't forget the dessert. Try the gulab jamun. :)
Also, there is frequently a Groupon offered for Sizzling Bombay.

Three out of three dishes were excellent, and the service was also excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant. Will be frequenting this place quite often.

“Enjoyable Indian food in small city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

I was surprised by the quality of the food and service in this small city location, and the environment was quite pleasant as well.

There was a good selection of traditional Indian favorites, but also a few rather unique items and house specialties. I chose a vegetarian dish for its uniqueness and was rewarded. The peshawari naan was the best I've had here in the US, and the papadoms were also satisfying. Service was attentive, but not overbearing.

The restaurant is a little hard to find, tucked back in a small strip mall behind some other businesses, but worth the trouble if you're persistent enough to find it.

“Experiment a little!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

My husband and I love to try diverse foods and restaurants new to us. We moved to Fallston over a year ago and continue to sample the many restaurants in the area. The Sizzling Bombay offered a Groupon, otherwise we would have never come upon this little hidden treasure. We visited on a week night and so we were pleasantly surprised to see so many customers in the restaurant. Dinner was definitely an experience rather than just an ordinary meal. We selected items from the menu we knew absolutely nothing about. The food was spicy but cooked to our desired intensity. We ate so much we could have rolled out of the place. I enjoyed a mango lassi that was thick and tasty. Plan for at least 90 minutes for the entire dinner experience and go with an open mind.

My wife and I both had the lunch buffet and we found the food to be very high quality. We were both very pleased with the large variety of foods that were available.
