Cuisine was its usual high calibre. Service was outstanding. Ambience and summer upgrades were lovely. Bombay Club never disappoints, having been dining there virtually from its very start in 1988.

Excellent service, the food and cocktails were okay. I think it was about on par with some take out places around the city in terms of food. But I've never had better service, they're very attentive.

Bombay Club outdoors (tented with heaters) is as enjoyable a dining experience as ever! The service is impeccable and every dish prepared to perfection. We love the crispy kale appetizer and the butternut squash samosas, which were crispy on the outside and deliciously seasoned inside. The shrimp moilee, lamb chops, lamb vindaloo and tadoori salmon were each thoroughly enjoyed. Mango cheesecake and the mango sorbet we’re also standouts for dessert. The chocolate mint martini was also well reviewed. And, if you love coffee, heated cream on the side is a welcome addition.

Outstanding location and atmosphere for an excellent Christmas Eve dinner. Although we went for the special menu, if that’s any reflection of the remainder of the menu, then we’re looking forward to our next visit to try everything from this delicious kitchen.

Chicken had several chewy gristles. Not appetizing, esp for the money. Otherwise, spiced great. Was seated in a room near area where waiters bring food. They seemed frenzied and in competition with each other. The wine person spent a lot of time at a table near us, very loud! Wife loved her lentil dish. Great bread. Dessert menu needs expansion. Small gin and tonic very expensive.

When you can’t be with family during the holiday, why not substitute the warmth you are missing with an old friend like the Bombay Club. Its been beautifully redecorated but still feels familiar. The food and service were impeccable. Can’t wait to return.

We were warmly greeted when we arrived and given our choice of tables. There was piano music playing in the background at just the right level! Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was fabulous. We had fish in banana leaves and shrimp for appetizers then a fish thali and duck breast. All were amazing . We even had chocolate sticky pudding and milk dumplings amazing again. Can’t wait to go back!

Outstanding food and service. The three thalis are all very good and very reasonably priced. A great place to take visitors.

That little stretch of Connecticut Avenue seems like an oasis of calm in rush hour traffic, and there is easy valet parking, although we found spaces on the street in front of the restaurant.

We were seated at a table too large for four people. With higher than expected noise levels we could hardly hear each other’s conversations. Our waiter while polite was inattentive and seemed to be rushing to the next thing. We were initially served another table’ s entrees an error we caught but not the waiter. Mostly we disappointed in the noise level. We were eager for the remodeled Bombay Club. The old restaurant was known for being one of the few places one could have conversation. The new restaurant is just like other restaurants now - too loud. We left a bit frenzied.

The food and service were excellent. It was a little noisy which took away from the Piano. I love listening to the music and I think since there were several large parties dining there chatter drowned out the piano music. Our waiter was fantastic and was very attentive.

I loved Bombay Club before and I love the newly redone Bombay Club just as much. The only vaguely negative thing was that they had a large party which slowed down service a bit. However, all the serving people were so nice and helpful that it made up for it. As always, the food was superb!
