We celebrated my mother in law’s birthday and everything was perfect. The live piano was fun. They brought her sorbet and champagne with a candle and it was delightful. The food was stellar as always.

This is a longstanding amazing gem! If u like Radika, you will like Bombay Club! I would have rated it outstanding overall but there was a noisy table nearby that detracted from the experience.

OMG my friend told me about this restaurant and decided to take my hubby for his 50th Birthday. He loves Indian food. He had a wonderful time, the food was fabulous and the great touch was, the piano man played Happy Birthday and the restaurant give him a drink with a scoop of mango and coconut ice cream. Amazing and Delicious!

Food was great. Probably deserving of all the hype and praise the restaurant has received.
Wait staff were cold and not friendly, as though they would rather serve only politicians and big wigs. This was especially true about the host.

This restaurant makes amazing food. The ambiance is usually great, but I asked to be seated somewhere quiet since I was having a business meeting. They seated us by the kitchen door where people kept popping in and out every few seconds. It was really distracting.

Restaurants generally need to keep their seating away from the restrooms and kitchen for exactly this reason. My lunch was messed up because of it, but I hope my boss was turned towards me and didn’t get bothered by all the noise and traffic. All I saw was busboys, so my ambiance was shot and so was my noise level.

Bombay Club takes a more classical approach than Washington’s other top Indian restaurant. Still, everything has a flair while favoring traditional dishes. The delicate spicing, refined space between tables and excellent service made for a great evening.

The food and service here are always outstanding, and this visit was no exception. Both my friend and I had thalis, which I've not done before. The portions are very generous. She had the seafood thali which had a nice portion of salmon. I did the club thali, which was a bit of chicken, lamb, and salmon, also good sides. An enjoyable way to visit with a friend!

Love! One of the best Indian choices in DC. Atmosphere is elegant and lively- live music, white tablecloths. They are family friendly and the service is always great. Everyone is so nice and attentive. The food is wonderful, I haven’t had anything I didn’t like.

Worst dining experience in my life. Got lectured by a waiter. The waiter also pointed his finger at us when we were talking to the manager. The manager was nice and catering, but I can not believe the level of rudeness demonstrated by the waiter at such a nice restaurant.

My experience at this restaurant was outstanding! The service was spectacular! Although we sat near a couple that was less than pleasant, our waiter and the manager came through with flying colors. This establishment is for the mature customer who appreciates fine dining with a fine atmosphere. The food and staff made the evening a win. Go for a fabulous night out!

very very disappointed, and embarrassed in front of my guests. the brunch buffet did not have chicken tandoori. The manager did not accommodate me when I asked to order and pay fully for more food. I wanted 2 orders of chicken tandoori and sea base and I told him I fully pay extra price of them. Food in the buffet was not good enough, I had 3 small children that I wanted some grill food for them. also an elder lady who did not eat the food because it was too spicy.

very rude waitress told my friend 3 years old boy to Shosh, the boy was not loud or bad behaving. I was so embraced, the mom, my friend could not believe how rude they were. I mean, I can not believe how unreasonable they are. I will never go there. I eat out every day, I never saw a manager would not do anything and be so arrogant toward customer.

The food was ok. Some items were either smaller than anticipated (Shrimp app) or had unusual flavors that didn’t work with our palate. We’ve eaten Indian food before so we couldn’t figure out if this was “authentic” and what we’ve had before was Americanized.

I was not aware that is was restaurant week, and I was not made aware of this when I made the reservation. As a result, they did not have their usual menu, and I was unable to order what I was looking forward to eating - tandoori chicken. We ordered two dishes, fish and lamb. The fish was awful, and the lamb was not bad. Needless to say, $106 dollars later, I was deeply disappointed with a meal that was not what I bargained for.

My girlfriends and I have a wonderful time. Our waiter was very attentive and catered not only to my WFPB (whole food plant based) lifestyle he also turned the air conditioner up during the time my girlfriend was having a hot flash. This has to be one of the best restaurants in DC.
