    It was my first time here and I was pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious and service was great. Everyone loved the food & had a good time. On RSVP, we noted it was a b'day celebration & they gave desert on the house, which was also delicious. It was very reasonably priced for great food.

    Dined on 3/10/2014
    The Bombay Palace is one of the nicest dinning establishments for Indian food - the atmosphere is calm unlike so many others where the music can be disruptive to private conversation and the decor is cleanly classic, so many others can be a bit tacky for western tastes, Im sorry to say. Most important, the food is excellent. They pay attention to personal preference even when you really like your selection very hot. Many places will not truly honor that. The wait staff is very well versed in Indian cuisine, pretty much what you want they will create, some times even if not stated on the menu which in itself is nicely ample.

    We went there on Valentines night and definitely enjoyed the food and the beautiful décor of the place, both were worth going back for again. The staff were nice and friendly, I just think they were not prepared for as many guests as they had that night, it was a full house. So our only compliant was lack of prompt service.

    This restaurant is embued with warm and hospitable management, the catalyst for myself and husband basking in a relaxed atmosphere. The warm colors and beautiful ambiance of Bombay Palace Beverly Hills is truly breathtaking and unique. The curries which are my favorite are deliciously cooked in Indian spices and very tasty. The shy person that I am, sitting at the table at the back, away from curious eyes, added to my comfort level. Indeed, a beautiful restaurant which I intend to visit again. Women tend to be my nemeses, but the very friendly and hospitable female server made my day with her permanent smile and engaging demeanor.

    I've dined at the Bombay a couple of times, and this time we thought it would be ideal for a Christmas Eve dinner for our families. There were 18 of us: we ordered beforehand, and after initial cocktails, the dinner choices were brought and the food was prepared sumptuously and tasted magnificent. We chose to have the dishes mild since there were 18 of us, some with a different level of how spicy they liked their food. Without "hot" spices, the subtlety of the dishes came through beautifully. The ambience of the Bombay Palace, makes the evening special in every regard. We'll return soon.

    I have known this restaurant for more than 15 years and have always enjoyed going back. This time, the food was again excellent but maybe not quite as delicious as what I remember. The main thing I noticed that the service was disappointing, we had to wait a long time for our appetizers and the main course. The atmosphere remains unique, and the music background (Bollywood) adds a lit bit of spice. Overall, still a nice place to go to, but no longer on the top of my favorite restaurants in LA.

    Friendly, family run place. Service was friendly. A little more expensive than we usually do, but the Indian food was the best we've ever had and authentic. Wonderful eggplant bengan bharta; golden colored, great consistency and hint of ginger. Not greasy at all. I'd recommend the chicken tikka masala. Tender chicken and flavorful sauce. Best ever. Onion kulcha-fragrant and really tasty from cooking in tandoori oven. Desert menu was expansive and authentic. More than gulab jamun. Had something I've never seen on Indian menu. Raismala? Very good, unique. Next time will try the Indian ice cream they make themselves. Would go back to have a fish dish-maybe tandoori salmon.

    We ordered "Aaloo Papri" and "Afgani Chicken" for Appetizer. "Aaloo papri" was ok, but "Afgani chicken" was AMAZING! one of the best, well cooked and great flavor. For entree we got "Saag Paneer" and "Karachi Kadai Gosht". One of the best saag paneer in town, i guess because they make paneer from scratch. Karachi Kadai Gosht was good too, great flavour but could have been cooked a little more. I personally don't like chewey lamb. We also got Garlic Nan and Kulcha, good job on that. For dessert we got, "Gajar Halwa". OMG, it was like home made. To top it of, it came with coconut ice-cream. 2 thumbs up for that. ***Overall a great Indian food experience, Recommended!!!***

    Everything was wonderful! This was our first time using Open Table to make a reservation and they made it super easy. I was able to put a note for the restaurant advising that it was my daughter's birthday also. The hostess (maybe owner) came over right away and wished her a happy birthday and they also brought her a dessert. Food and Service were excellent!!

    We had a vegan friend with us and we all left extremely well fed. We live nearby so usually order take out but this time we ate in the restaurant and so pleased that we did. It is a very beautiful and elegant room, the service was attentive but never intrusive and we were able to hold a conversation easily since it is neither loud nor hectic. We so much appreciate that! I'm afraid we were so engrossed in conversation we did not realize we were the last ones there but the staff (it is a family owned restaurant) never pushed us to leave and only when we got up did we realize we had been keeping them open! Gracious hosts indeed! All that is on top of the best tikka masala and lamb and rice dishes! Truly delicious. Highly recommended.

    I've visited India twice, and both times, I ate amazing local cuisine at high-end gourmet rooms and neighborhood eateries. Bombay Palace serves up authentic flavors to rival the best I had during my Indian holidays. The place is family-run and feels very homey and welcoming within a gorgeously decorated dining room fit for a maharaja's feast. I love this place!!!

    My son and I are fans of Indian Cuisine and had never tried Bombay Palace. We were in the neighborhood for an event and were looking for some excellent, authentic food. We found it at Bombay Palace and were treated to excellent service as well. It was early and not a busy night but we felt well taken care of and the dishes were freshly prepared. We intend to return on the next trip to Beverly Hills.

    I was very disappointed with your server on that day. Considering it was our first time in your restaurant, she should have take time to explain some of the menu. Whenever my husband ask questions she reply almost with just yes or no, no explanation at all. We were the only customers at that time when we arrive but she was not friendly with us. We have no idea what her problem was. My daughter did not like her food, in other restaurants they would offer my daughter something to replace the food that she did not really ate. My husband ordered for another plate of rice, We waited several minutes but no rice came. We have to tell her twice for a plate of rice. How sad. Thank you for giving me this opportunuty to tell you what I feel.
