After living in London, I think I have a pretty good idea of what excellent Indian food is. Although I've had better, Saalam Bombay is a solid very good and is priced accordingly.

The food is fresh, well-seasoned and the buffet will leave you wishing you had elastic in your waistband.

Along with friendly staff, I do recommend this restaurant for your curry fix.

Crappiest Indian food resturant. The worst kind of food- unflavorful, no spices, just plain bad. The lassi we ordered was so sour that seems like you were pouring acetic acid in your mouth. The saag paneer and diwani handi were just bad- no flavor- no spice- just boiled spinach paste. The bread basket roti were uneven- the aloo roti had more roti and less aloo. The veg biryani was so spicy that could burn your mouth. The free papad they offer- was uncooked and was sticking in the mouth. So only plus was the ambience, other than that you will be good if you stay away from this bad indian restaurant.

Great selection of food and solid service. Decor outdated but food overwhelms it. Low corkage fee and BYOB welcome

The atmosphere is great. The place is spacious, unlike most new York restaurants. The service is good and friendly. The food is fresh, clean and the flavored are well balanced. A little pricey, but well worth it. Also kid friendly. There is no kid menu but they modify items on the menu for your kids. Highly recommended!

As big loves of Indian food we were looking forward to our visit to Salaam Bombay. The place has a great atmosphere and nice decor and the service is very attentive. We started with the appetizer platter. The portion was generous and for the two of us was a good started. I thought the Samosa was good and generally liked the offering and the Khaman Dhokla was amazing. We also ordered the Paneer Kulcha and I wished it had more cheese in it.
For our entrees we had the Bhuna Gosht, which was lamb cubes in a delicious mix of spices. Unfortunately the lamb was a bit too chewy and sinewy for my tastes. We also had a scallop dish and the sauce was great but we specifically ordered the scallops well done and cooked through and they actually came slightly under done we thought.
Overall I would say this is a nice place if you are in the area.
