Wonderful wonderful food. Delicately spiced with rich flavor. Even the jamun wasn't too sweet. Best Indian so far.

We had a Groupon it said that it was not good for the buffet we went there at lunchtime on my wife's birthday and were unable to eat because they only serve a buffet. Nowhere did the Groupon say that it was only valid after a certain time of day or that there was not an ala carte menu available during the lunch hour. I was extremely disappointed. 😒

We started with Papri Chat. Outstanding flavors. My wife had the Chicken Tikki Masala and I had the Lamb Vindaloo. Both were fabulous. Just the right heat and fabulous spices. The garlic naan was awesome. We had a reasonably priced Malbec that complimented our meal. Friendly service and very attentive staff. We will definitely be back!

Not the best Indian restaurant I've been to but conveniently located for the event we were going to.

It is a decent one for team lunch. Items in the buffet were adequate.

I can't give enough credit to the food. We had 2 lamb dishes and 1 chicken dish. The curry was exceptional and the flavors were spot on.
The service was pretty rough to start. I think the Ryder Cup numbers may have surprised them and the server was pretty green. After a 40 minute wait for a beer, the owner (?), stepped in and provided our service. He was delightful, interesting and helpful.
We'll try this place again.

The curry is not authentic. The chicken tasted like it came from a tin and curry powder was added to the gravy. This is not how curry is served. Service was abismal and one of my guests didn't get his food until the rest of us had finished. The Bombay Bistro is rubbish.
