    Good food, prepared well. One issue: My lamb dish was quite tasty, but there were some bones in the dish with very little or no meat on them. Otherwise, no complaints. Nice selection of appetizers, drinks and entrees. Servers were very nice and helpful.

    This is a nice location. It has good decor, a nice ambiance, clean bathrooms. The food is very good - delicious selection of different Indian food. Highly recommend the chicken tikka masala or paneer tikka masala. The service is just OK - the waiters did not come over to explain the menu or ask if we had questions or if everything came out OK with the food. Also at the end we were still finishing our drinks (and had only been there just over an hour and there were a lot of empty tables) and they asked if we want dessert and I said yes can I see the menu then they said actually we need you to switch tables. I didn't think this was very good so just got the check instead of dessert. We hadn't finished our drink either. Overall I would say the food is very good and delicious but it seems like they didn't have many service staff with experience and/or maybe hadn't been trained that well to wait tables.

    Great food, great setting, and for the West Village a real treat - not pushed off the table after 90 minutes! The staff our super friendly. Overall the restaurant has the vibe of a British Indian restaurant combined with a stylish London gastropub.

    What an amazing gem of culinary delight that we were so lucky to find. Chef Chetan and the team offer an amazing experience all around from ambiance, to service, to food quality, and overall experience. We were so pleasantly surprised and lucky to have found this restaurant and cannot wait to go back. We tried the mussels, tandoori chicken, and shrimp curry and plan to try out the rest of the menu soon. We were fortunate to share a conversation with Chef Chetan who was kind enough to update us on his journey and ended our night perfectly with his delicious beetroot halwa.

    The best Indian food in NYC and beyond. We loved everything. Here's what we ordered: garlic naan, chana masala, dal makhani, and chicken tikka masala. We were hoping for Storypoint Chardonnay, and paid the same price for a lesser bottle. However, we still give all 5 ratings for the wonderful village atmosphere, friendly service, and incredible food.

    One of my favorite Indian restaurants in New York! The food is always delicious, the service excellent, and the ambiance can’t be beat for a date night or fun night out with friends. The signature cocktails are original and delicious. They also do a special birthday celebration which is always fun! Can’t wait to come back again soon!!

    Great little place ! Chicken tandoor and Pani Puri appetizers were awesome.. chicken melted in your mouth! Great flavor. The crispy okra was average …little too overdone and not hot. Chicken tikka masala was delicious and drinks were on point! Halfway through the meal It got very hot in the restaurant… not sure what happened there. Service was good and the ambiance was nice. They played great music (disco) which I really wasn’t expecting… I enjoy upbeat Indian and Bollywood music especially with Indian cuisine. Overall great little place.

    I stopped in at Bombay Bistro for an early dinner (my first time there) - and had a lovely experience. The restaurant is so warm and cozy, with such beautiful decor. I started with the kale and chickpea salad, which was delicious. I then had the tandoori fish with rice and roti - excellent. And I finished with the chocolate lava cake, which had some Indian spices. It was fantastic. The service was very good. Nice option for fine Indian dining in the heart of Greenwich Village.

    This is truly the best Indian food I’ve had in NYC. Everything we had was delicious. It’s also one of the few places that are currently open late for dining. The music was tacky and the other customers were quite boisterous so it’s not exactly “cozy”. But we will definitely go back.

    Disappointed to say the least. Service was extremely slow. Waited about 40 minutes just for appetizer, than another wait for entrees. We had one of those opentable gift cards from points that they were unable to process in addition to the slow service. Wouldn't be going back any time soon. Food is decent, but portions small, and overpriced as compared to other local Indian.
