An adjacent diner was very noisy and our server was new (he told us) and needed many reminders.

The new décor was elegant without being stuffy. Staff was very friendly and attentive, but the service was slow. I think there was a larger crowd than anticipated.
The food was terrific and portions were large and satisfying. Good value for the cost. If not for a very loud diner at the table across from us who had no concept of "inside" voice, the noise level was fine.

Service was painfully horrible. Slow is an understatement. Our waitress could BARELY pronounce the dishes, leave alone describe them. Whenever she came around (which was rarely) and asked a question, she would walk away even before we completed the answer. The bread ("Kulcha") that my daughter ordered came WELL after her entree arrived. Food was ok - nothing great.

This was my family’s first time dining at the Bombay restaurant and it was indeed a memorable experience. The service (especially our server) was outstanding. The food was excellent (the kale chips, simply delicious). We will definitely be returning.

We came for a birthday - the service, food and ambience were all excellent. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and made great recommendations on menu selections. Table maintenance was on point: courses were well timed, plates were cleared, tabletop was cleaned and silverware reset all in a timely fashion but without disruption. The indoor setting was perfect - quiet enough to hear everyone at the table, but they also had live piano which we loved. This was our first time dining here, and we look forward to coming back again!

There may be flashier fine dining Indian restaurants in the DMV but there is a very good reason this one has been around for 30 plus years: excellent service, stellar dishes that elevate not overwhelm, and a wonderful ambience where you can actually have a quiet conversation with your dining companions.

Formerly a favorite which has started a sad coasting downhill slide. Perhaps due to pandemic constraints or the owner's preoccupation with his other projects this restaurant is no longer on my to-do list. The food has been degraded-the Vindaloo is not worthy of the name and the kitchen refused any accomodation until pushed by the manager. The naans are uninspired and came out cold. My dishes were served long before my date's and were also cool to the touch. Worst was a horrible piano player who either has Parkinsonism or dementia but played 60s and 70s tunes in a slow halting dirge-like hammering which was most unappetizing. The waiter kept apologizing and did not know the menu. Sorry to Tom at the Post but this restaurant is no longer worth any attention.

We dined outside on a beautiful September evening. While the outdoor dining is right on Connecticut Avenue, there was little traffic. Our service was gracious and attentive and the dishes well prepared.

We had not been at The Bombay Club for 20+ years so we were excited to go back. When we arrived the parking owners decided to do construction (jack hammer noises every few minutes). We asked the hostess if we could move outside because we could not tolerate the loud noise. They set up a table for us and we were able to enjoy a wonderful meal. We had the Kale crispy salad which was excellent and the Club Thali plus the Roasted Kasundi Scallop - again all delicious! We look forward to eating at The Bombay Club!

A wonderful evening! Food and service were outstanding. We ate outside so not as nice an ambiance as indoors but perfect for these times. We particularly loved: crispy kale appetizer, fish curry, dal makhani. The eggplant dish was very spicy. The sampler main course is a good way to eat multiple dishes. Will definitely go back again!

The air conditioning was out and no apologies were offered. In fact no mention was made until I asked at the end of the meal: so how long has your A/C been out? Answer: just today Again no apology. Also the piano was ridiculously loud and not very good

Love this place, so this message is for the owners... Two things I've noticed recently is that things seem a bit rushed, and I'm not sure why. Slow down a bit, particularly if you don't have people queueing.
The other one is the decor. The modern touch you added has killed a bit of the spirit of the BC. If we want modern, there's always Rasika, so why go that way?
Overall, it's a great place. It would be great if it does not become like others.
Thank you

We got off to a rocky start when the host couldn’t find our reservation and there weren’t any requested outdoor tables available. My disappointment was apparent. The host and waitstaff immediately rallied by relocating a table from the indoor lounge area to the outdoor patio. Within minutes we were seated in a lovely spot with a waitstaff and host extremely attentive throughout an excellent meal. Slip ups are understandable. But the way this team responded makes an already loyal customer all the more loyal.
