I had a dinner last month and thought it was fabulous so booked lunch for my family and was disappointed at the inconsistency. I ordered the seafood thali. the salmon was pink raw, the shrimp was chewy and the fish in the curry was rubbery. so, overall disappointed.

I love South Asian food and was skeptical to try this restaurant. It went above expectations (especially for restaurant week) and the service was great.

It was a buffet. Potatoes dish should have been hit but served room temperature. Lamb, chicken dish each good. No random dishes provided. Cold chopped vegetables vs an Indian vegetable dish. Cost vs variety low. Would not partake in a Restaurant Week in the future.

The food was excellent. I went with some friends for restaurant week and we really enjoyed the experience. It definitely harkened back to old world dining with the live piano player and the white tablecloths.

We had a lovely evening at the Bombay club. Beautiful atmosphere and we loved the live piano music. The appetizers were the best I’ve had in a long time. The service was kind and professional but knew when to leave us alone. We will definitely be back.

I always enjoyed Bombay Club. Usually for the excellent brunch. This time it was a restaurant week dinner with friends. The place is as elegant as ever with a great piano player and good service. But the food was very bland and rather bland. As my Indian friend commented “cooked for the American palate”. That’s a mistake.

We were seated in an area that was designated for a large party within an hour of our reservation, so it felt rushed. The service by the waiter was outstanding and the ambiance was great. The value was great for “restaurant week” but the portions would be very small for normal dining.

The food was delicious but the restaurant was very noisy. Guess it was to be expected during restaurant week. Packed restaurant and lively diners. Will return but hope to enjoy it during a less crowded time period.

Appetizer, entree and dessert were all very good, but none of them were outstanding. The restaurant across the street (The Oval Room) which has the same owner - and where we dined the day before, has outstanding food, and I intend to return to the Oval Room, because too few restaurants have truly outstanding food. But for very good food and excellent service, I do recommend the Bombay Club.

Wonderful food, gracious service, old world club ambience, and gentle grand piano accompaniment made it a lovely evening. The Palak Chaat is a staple not to be missed. We had one guest who is sensitive to spice so we went with the butter chicken (so awesome), lamb shank (fine and substantial but I prefer the more flavorful Tandoori offering), Daal (true creamy comfort food), cilantro shrimp, and garlic and truffle naan. Kids had mango lassis and we enjoyed the chili G&T and St Germaine cocktails.

While the appetizers and desserts were great, we were quite disappointed with the main course. The serving staff were great and accommodated our requests for the 3 little ones dining with us.

New year eve dinner - The courses were served way to quick as if they were in Rush to move the customers. The vegetarian Thali ( main course) was not good at all ... for the price charged they should have a selection vs including a potato curry and a stale paneer curry. The quality has come down for the price they have charged

Update** I changed my rating from 1 to 3. Reason being, ‘I was heard’. Thank you for acknowledgment and making me feel that you value your customers. I appreciate all the phone calls and kind gesture.

I was highly highly disappointed today. This was my 10th plus time going there. We ordered drinks, starters and main course. However, in the main course there was a hair in the chicken curry. We showed the staff. They replaced our curry. No one apologized infact, the server said, 'It has never happened and the chef said do you see hair on anyone of is'? Very very rude behavior. Not a single apology and plus seems like we put the hair in the curry. I took my friends who were visiting from another state but our evening was spoiled.
We understand the 'hair' situation which can happen anywhere but admittance and apology or curtesy was highly missing. Very rude server.

The food is reliably good, but the service is unfortunately now reliably slow. My husband and I were at the Bombay Club two weeks ago, for dinner with two other couples and the service was very slow, which we blamed on our table for six. We took our children this time, making four of us and the service may have been even slower. Drinks were slow, appetizers ten minutes after those, and dinner not only took 30 minutes, but parts of the order were missing. I only got my naan after everyone finished their meals. Piano was playing holiday songs-live-but it may have well been on a loop. The half hour waiting for our dinner, we heard White Christmas three times!
Great food, as always.

It was a little dark for my taste. I noticed that almost everybody was. Using a flashlight to read the menu. The eggplant dish didn’t have much flavor. The crispy kale was amazing. The service was excellent.
