Bombay Club was a wonderful place to renew an old friendship. The Maitre D' found us a wonderful table that was off the beaten track, but still very much in the midst of action in the Dinning Room. Just perfect! The food was exceptionally good - wonderful spices, delicious flavors, and good potion size. The service was kind and efficient, and our server knew when to give us more time without our having to ask for it. The ambiance was warm and sophisticated - really conducive to an enjoyable evening meal with a god friend

In short, Bombay Club is an excellent choice for a special dinner or for a regular one that you want to make special!

The bus staff needs to be trained better. The busier tried to move a chair from the table and my guest had to stand up, which was fine. She the then offered to let the busser take her chair so that it would be easier than trying to move the chair that was further away. The busier took her chair and couldn't even be bothered to move the other chair to where my guest was seated! Amazing.

The server had no clue as to which dish Chef would be most proud of and didn't describe the Green chili chicken except to say it it was with green chilis. hardly helpful

For me, Rasika handling the small stuff much better and is a much better option.

We thoroughly enjoy dining @ Bombay Club whenever we get to go to DC. They have a real knack @ making their diners feel special. We ordered the scallop appetizer, lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken & a fabulous bottle of Sancerre. If you enjoy Indian cuisine, you will love the Bombay Club!!

Delicious, delicious, delicious! For an appetizer we had samosas which were moist and flavorful. For entries, we shared a cauliflower vegetarian dish and shrimp moilee. Both were spicy but just right. The wine recommendation, an Oregon pinot noir, was wonderful as was the service. We eat here regularly and will continue to do so.

Upon driving up to the restaurant, see an open spot on the street, as I turn towards it, the valet guy reverses diagonally and grabs the spot. I call the manager, who says the parking in front is for valet—turns out the sign was nowhere to be seen.

Anyhow, that pretty much ruined the experience. Food was average, price very high, manager could have offered to cover the cost of the valet but he didn’t care about customer service.

Excellent drinks and very good food. Scallop appetizer was fabulous! Not many tables in the dining room that have a decent view and the ability to hear one another. You pretty much have to choose between too much noise or a good view of the kitchen/restroom doors.

The Bombay Club is always great! I went with 2 friends to celebrate a birthday. The food was fabulous and we 6 different items. The server was very good about explaining how hot one item was (saying he had seen people cry from it). The birthday desert was very special. The only problem was the service was a little slow, but fortunately we were not in a huge hurry.

For decades Bombay Club has been my standard for elegant dining that is always delicious, served by attentive waiters in a pleasant environment, and with a neighborhood vibe... Albeit with a pianist😊👍 Tonight, it was a little noisier than usual b/c lots of big groups but the food was stellar. (I'm assuming you know and love Indian cuisine!)

I have been to Bombay Club several times over the years and have always been very pleased with the food and service. I have never had a complaint about anything there. The place is roomy and comfortable, and the service is impeccable. The wait staff is right there, and never have I had to look for a waiter. Still, the staff never bother us with questions. They are extremely professional and well trained. Last week I spilled my entire cocktail on my table, and within two minutes, my waitress, with another waiter, had changed the whole table and made it just like new. Two minutes after that my drink was replaced. I was impressed that during the whole episode, my conversation with my date went on uninterrupted, I felt no need to apologize, and nobody felt awkward in any way. Outstanding service! The food was great too! I usually tip 20% and I always tip more when I go to Bombay Club.

Noise level was much higher than I anticipated or enjoy. Online reviews mention it as quiet and the weekend piano playing as subdued or in the background. We found it loud and the diners were trying to talk above it. Noisy large table next to us did not help. Our server disappeared at times, but the food was quite good. I would still recommend this restaurant but perhaps with more enthusiasm during the week.
