The thali was amazing - great balance of dishes and spiced perfectly. Tried the dessert sampler, and couldn’t have been more pleased. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Live piano music added to the ambiance. Great experience.

Food quality has drastically droppped, lemon rice wasn't lemony, paneer Malini wasn't cooked properly, spices seemed less than usual. Seems like they have changed something in the kitchen that's impacting quality.

Our first time at The Bombay Club but it won’t be our last! We celebrated our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed in our choice of restaurants. The waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable in addition to being a great server. We had Tandoori chicken, spinach paneer, chicken biryani, cucumber raita , shrimp with coconut , two yummy appetizers and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

Food was incredibly tasty. For some reason, the chef did not prepare any of the Biryani on a Friday night, which was a lill bit of A letdown.......overall, i give 3/5 stars because the portions are a lill bit small compared to the pricing. Otherwise, a wonderful pkace tucked behind the White House!

We use The Bombay Club as a "Special Occasion" restaurant as it never disappoints in the area of service, quality of food, ambiance and value for money. Highly recommended if you love food from India.

Good food but not the best. The drinks are excellent and the dessert was delish. Here's the rub: the lamb vindaloo was unreal good, as was the saag. Then the chicken was average in taste; the Club Thali (sampler) and dessert sampler a pittance for the price. Overall, 3.5 stars but overpriced, clearly you're paying more for location and attitude than good solid food. I'll come again but only for the drinks and spicy lamb.

We visited the Bombay Club this past Saturday to celebrate our anniversary. We were a party of 4 and asked our waiter to choose some dishes for us to create a tasting experience for us. We were quite happy with the choices and really enjoyed everything. Our daughters had a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we arrived. The ambiance was very classy and the live piano music added to the upscale experience. The only glitch was that I ordered a vodka martini that arrived with Gin, but they quickly made the change. If you like Indian food, this is a great choice.

Good Food. Nothing out of ordinary. I think this place is meant for non Indians or Indians who have been Out of India for long long time. And it seemed the staff has been trained that way too. Did not get the warm welcome feeling. Very curt. Taste wise it was good.

This sister restaurant to Rasika - my favorite restaurant, period - is a great place for an upscale business lunch. The "fried" kale salad is a must and can be shared. Beautiful interior with ornamental furnishing well placed among the tables, that give an intimate feel to your experience. Waiters are informative and attentive but not obtrusive.
