“The food and atmosphere is superb!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you want authentic Indian cuisine, Bollywood Bistro is the restaurant to go to.
My family had 2 weddings catered from there, and now having a third. The food is that good, and made the weddings memorable!
They have an excellent staff, who takes care of your every need.

“Average food and poor service”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Went for the buffet lunch on a Friday. While price of the buffet is reasonable, the food and attitue of staff was worst. Staff was always walking around our tables and looking into our plates with suspision and everytime we got up to get something, they gave us a serious looks making us uncomfortable. And finally the bill (check) was given evey before we said we are done. Not that we eat a lot, nor was the restaurant crowded, and it was still around 2PM. About food, it was just average without much variety compared to other Indian restaurants.

“Both delicious and beautiful!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Found this wonderful Indian through Trip Advisor reviews, and it didn't disappoint". Lovely setting, though not easy to find. Tucked into a large building with other shops and restaurants, but once you find it, we'll worth the effort. Delicious Tandoori, naan, biryani.... And Rasmali for dessert! Will return again when I next visit this area

“Always a fabulous dinner”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

One of our favorite go to spots for date night. The chicken tikka masal and lal maas are our favorites. The service is consistently good. It is worth the wait on a weekend night as well.

“Best Indian Food in the Area”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Excellent restaurants don't need lengthy good reviews. Just five stars and a concise description. Then, you have to go try it yourself.

Service: agile, courteous, hot Naan and icy water always refilled.
Decor: cozy, modern, and reflective of Bollywood sense.
Cleanliness: Table cloths, utensils, floors, plates, everything is clean and emasculate.
Food: cooked to perfection, an excellent variety of meats and vegetarian dishes.
Management: The manager must be the (co)owner of the place because he's always there instructing waiters and paying attention to every detail. I once heard him telling the waiter "if the chair is a bit shaky, don't ever seat the customer on it".
Price: I've always gone there for Lunch buffet only. Absolutely reasonable for the quality of the food. It's $9 all you can eat from 11:30-2:00 as I recall.

I keep taking more and more friends to this place because it's the best Indian buffet I've ever tried in Northern Virginia.

Just go and see for yourself!
