Bombay Club is a rare place where food, service and ambiance are equally great. I have never been disappointed after dining there.

Sitting inside on a rainy night was comfortable, elegant and safe. Plenty of spacing between customers and appropriate precautions by the staff. As always, the service was smooth and gracious, the food delicious and the setting and music create one of the loveliest dining experiences in DC.

Food was great overall. My companions received beer that was barely cool, but a quick word to the bartender remedied that. We had trout and lamb, both of which were delicious. (Actually, we got a second order of the lamb, too, which was better than the first. The first order had been overcooked and was tough.) Our order of naan and chutney was supposed to come before the entrees but did not. When it did arrive, it was tasty.

The service was not up to par, but our waiter had been there only two days and the holiday weekend crowd had the staff stretched to its limits. Even the maître d' and manager were waiting tables. An obnoxiously loud (and obviously intoxicated) group seated behind us made more noise than the rest of the crowd combined. We asked the staff a half-dozen times to say something, but there was not much to be done. Because of all the service issues, I’d hoped that something would be taken off our bill (which did not occur), but we did receive a couple free desserts, which were a nice treat.

The pianist at the baby grand was very good and I enjoyed chatting with him a couple times, including when he came over to our table.

We plan to visit again on a less-busy weekend.

Went for restaurant week. There were two dinner menus that offered a really wide selection of food choices for prix fixe. Everything was well seasoned and beautifully presented. The naan was well made- pillowy was the word that came to mind. Had the duck kebab, fish curry and sticky coffee- date had shrimp roast, lamb chops and crepe brûlée. And cocktails were delicious! I had the Rose drink and the G&T, but will try more next time. everything was well seasoned

I'd like to give the restaurant a Covid "pass," but not one dish was good. The duck kebab turned out to be minced meat (not so indicated on the menu) with no duck flavor -- it could have been any meat -- and not much taste other than spicy. The mango shrimp appetizer was so-so at best, a bit better than the cilantro shrimp entrée, which were large shrimp but very overcooked, dry and not worth eating. The Andhra chicken curry was no better than at any mediocre (and more modestly priced) Indian restaurant. A total disappointment.

I've always heard great things about Bombay Club and decided to try it out with a couple friends for restaurant week. We were not disappointed. I had the Avocado Sev Puri, Kashmiri Roganjosh (Lamb dish that came with rice and naan), and chocolate sticky toffee pudding. I enjoyed all three choices. The appetizer had a familiar sweetness to it and the lamb was seasoned well and was very tender. The server was very attentive without overdoing it. My friends had the fish tikka and shrimp curry which they enjoyed as well. I'll definitely be back.

Bombay Club is my favourite Indian in DC, I also prefer to clubby feel of the room to their sister restaurant Rasika. Service here is not to be outdone and the comfortable room, elegant decor and nightly piano make it perfect for conversation. I love here.

My wife and I each had different set 'Thalis' and both were excellent except for the Paneer Makhani, which I think is a lazy way to cook paneer and unhealthy to boot. But in other respects we enjoyed the food and the restaurant tremendously. Good quality at a reasonable price and not too noisy as many restaurants tend to be.

We requested a special seating (not honored) and our waiter was attending to two other tables at the same time which did not allow him to not be rushed or attend to us at a proper manner. Food was decent.

We were a party of four and absolutely loved the food. Even my husband who normally doesn't like spicy fare loved the fish and other dishes. The paneer dishes were mouth watering, and so was the chicken biryani. Service was fine and the ambience was very nice. Will definitely be going back!

I have had only the best experiences at the Bombay Club. It is one of the few DC restaurants where one can truly relax and enjoy superb food and impeccable service. A visit to the Bombay Club is like a mini-vacation. Strongly recommend the cilantro shrimp entree, thali platters, crispy kale and tandoori salmon entree.

Appetizers (First course) were great - very tasty. The main entrees were lacking in taste. The chicken tikka Makhani was flavorless you an Indian palate. The menu items are pre made and brought out immediately.
