Diner Reviews
  • "This was my first time at Bombay Palace, and I brought a client who is not so easy to please. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the food. We had the lunch buffet, so service was not so much a part of our experience, although we found the service responsive, if a little rushed. I'll definitely go back with friends."

  • "I saw mixed reviews about Bombay Palace but I've always wanted to try it and it did not disappoint. It may be because I was seeing a show afterward and my reservation was at 5:15pm but we were seated immediately and 3-4 servers at our disposal the entire dinner. They also have a theater menu for $29.99 which was perfect because we didn't want to walk into the theater with food. I had the vegetable samosa, mixed green salad, chicken tikka masala and some sort of diced carrot and pistachio dessert. Everything was great although I must admit it's not the best Indian food I've ever had but it won't stop me from going back. Beware of the coconut margarita though. It's entirely too strong, almost like they just poured 1800 coconut over ice."

  • "I went here on Valentine's Day with a close girlfriend to celebrate her as a late Christmas gift. She recently suddenly lost her mother at such a young age, that I wanted to give her a happy moment. I never got her a christmas gift and thought it was a perfect time to surprise her with a "gift". This would be a new experience, dining at an Indian restaurant. Bombay Palace met my expectation. Service was delightful. Food was amazing and the drinks were good. The decor was beautiful. We were stuffed and we left there just in time to walk to Majestic theater for her next surprise, Phantom of the Opera. I definitely will go back."

  • "My 2 friends and I very much enjoyed our meal at Bombay Palace on a quiet Tuesday evening. I asked for my goat dish to be spicy and they accommodated. All was very well done- food, service ambience......"

  • "I have been going to Bombay Palace for many years, and I am delighted that it is still a midtown neighborhood fixture, with very good Indian cuisine. Service was very attentive, and helpful in every way."

  • "Bombay Palace proposes an unusual and original menu, very well presented and abundant. Careful when ordering: an appetizer and a plate per person could be too much! A very good find in a neighborhood which doesn't offer much restaurant-wise."

  • "The food was fine but I thought it was overpriced for what you got, so you're paying for location. Long tapers placed in the center of the table made it awkward to converse and an ornately carved table legs made it difficult to place my feet or slide over in the booth."

  • "We were a part of seven and overall disappointed. The food was excellent, but service was horrendous. We sat for close to ten minutes before someone acknowledged us, and then waited over 75 minutes before our appetizers arrived. The slow service was raised with the wait staff and management several times and no attempt to recover was made. In the end, some food never showed up and they did nothing to get us to return - no apology, no offer for credit on the bill, no desserts or free drinks. The most amazing aspect is that the restaurant was not overly busy - probably about 60% capacity."

  • "We enjoyed the food, samosas and curries were good, naan was excellent. The only issue was the service; it felt rushed and indifferent. I never saw a smile. When we were seated the table wasn't set, and a waitress literally tossed napkins and silverware on the table before rushing off. We set the table ourselves. We never saw her again and were waited on mostly by the host. He meant well but was clearly busy. I would recommend only for food, don't expect to feel a warm welcome."

  • "The menu is varied with plenty of vegetarian options. The service is excellent, lots of attention but not obtrusive. It's beautiful to look at, too. Location is great, walking distance from lots of theaters. I'll be back."

  • "Six of us had food that was way above our spice-level tolerance even though we specifically requested mild or very mild seasoning. Even the substitute sauce that we asked for to replace one of the dishes was too hot. So beware, unless you like your food hot."

  • "Went here on a Thursday night with 4 co-workers. We arrived at 8:30 for dinner. The food was all very good. I thought the lentil soup was terrific. The menu is ala-carte, but they have a complete dinner for about $30 that includes soup or salad, an appetizer, the main meal, and dessert. We all ordered that sinc eit seemed like the best value. My only complaint was that the service was quite slow, especially considering the restaurant was not at all crowded. So if you're going to the theatre after dinner you mighth want to let them know. Overall very good!"
