Unfortunately I got quite sick after eating here. I thought the food on the buffet was very overcooked.

lunch buffet was a nice assortment, everything you expect and a few extra nice touches. you get naan with the buffet, too! server was attentive and kept up with clearing and refills. Not formal, but much nicer than the other Indian place in the next stripmall over. Would recommend for a friendly lunch.

Used open table to make sure we could get in on Mother's day but this restaurant is a regular haunt for us. Meat and vegetables well cooked and sauces out of this world. Spice levels adjusted to your individual tastes. Great drinks at the bar, quiet with a soft ambiance, good service - everything you would want in a regular restaurant.

Great food and service as always. This time, the female owner was out and about saying hello to ALL patrons. That's a huge change to the male manager that picks and chooses the tables he visits.

We had a bad experience. We were there for a long time. Service was very slow, never received our appetizer, or Naan, or raita or chutney. Chicken Tiki Masala was different than before at this restaurant, very tough, with lots of gristle Although the manager apologized and comped the chicken, we felt like we had wasted our evening. We have eaten there many times and previously had good experiences.

This was a really nice Indian Bristo for a dinner date. The staff was friendly and food was great. I will be back for lunch meetings as I don't work far from location.

Not very good Indian food. Menu not very interesting. Go to Sitar if you want Indian in Nashville. It was open and convenient to Cool Springs.

A regular place for us, we eat here at least 3 times a month. Love it so much, very consistent and a staple in all of our dinning options in our new " food city"

I've been a passionate follower of Indian food for many years and I was so surprised to find truly excellent regional Indian food in a Cool Springs strip. The service was outstanding and attentive. The decor is muted chic but not self-conscious. And the food - customized to your preference of spiciness - is absolutely the real deal. Complex and delicious, prepared in traditional means, it is worth the drive. Highly recommended!

Great lunch buffet. Better than I had remembered! There could have been more chicken in the curry but very impressed at how everything was allergy labeled. Very yummy!

Bombay Bistro is a great place to eat if you like Indian food. It is a family run business and they strive to make sure you have a great meal. Also you have to try the Bombay Blues cocktail. Sort of a Long Island Iced Tea with an Indian twist.
