The Bombay Bistro Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I tried this for the 1st time Sat. night and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was authentic and serviced family style so sharing is easy and a chance to try different things. The waitress was very nice and gave some good suggestions. We took home leftover snap had it the next day fro lunch and still really yummy.
We will definitely go back . Fun place to go with a few couples that like to try new flavors !
Everything we ordered was delicious. We ate family style so we could all try out the different dishes. Authentic family recipies which were simply yet elegantly presented. The staff were knowledgeable and well informed. We will be back to check out some other dishes.
We love Indian cuisine and Bombay Bistro has become our hands down favorite Indian restaurant in NJ. They have much more than your typical fare with family recipes that you will not find anywhere else. The staff is always very friendly and helpful, and they are sensitive to individual dietary needs. I would highly recommend.
The server was very attentive to our constraints, which included multiple food allergies, a request for extra mild food, and a request for extra spicy food. He verified the ingredients of multiple dishes with the kitchen.
The food was tasty and arrived with ample rice. It was one of the best father's day dinners I had.
Food is great here. The service this particular night was extremely slow - we waited 45 mins for our main course after appetizer was cleared away. Some in our party didn't have appetizers so they waited a really long time for food - but normally we have no issues with service. They were very accommodating to my young child who didn't want anything on the menu - they cooked him something special. The staff are very friendly.-
Appetizer of chaat samosa and galouti kabab were very good. However, all entrees - chicken tikka masala, lamb kofta curry and chicken biriyani were exceptionally salty to the point that you could not eat more than a teaspoon of it. The paalak paneer was very good however.
We dined here on a Friday night and it became really crowded once 7:30 PM rolled around. It was noisy ( a group was having a really good and loud time as the wine flowed) but the great good food and service outweighed that negative. We each ordered an entree and had another meal to take home. This place is far superior to our usual Indian restaurant in Madison. (My husband who has traveled to India several times agrees with this assessment.) Check it out!
My friend and I went out of our ways to visit the Bombay Bistro based on the excellent OpenTable reviews (best Indian in N.NJ evidently). Regrettably, both of us were disappointed by our lunches there. While the quality of the buffet was generally decent, the selection was limited to a smallish number of Americanized favorites (tandoori chicken, curry chicken, basmati rice, etc). We were expecting more. Additionally, we didn't really love the decor of the restaurant. The front area is neat, but the rear of the restaurant is oddly designed with cheesy signage above the open kitchen. Bottom line: likely a reliable choice for local takeout basic Indian food, but definitely not worth the 30 min drive for friend and me.
Very Americanized version of Indian Food.
Having just moved to Short Hills from NYC, I was hoping to find a good Indian restaurant. This was not it. Food had no flavor or personality to it. The chicken tasted as though it was boiled and placed into some stock curry.
We'll keep looking elsewhere.
The food was excellent. The waiter was friendly and very helpful with suggestions. He paid special attention to dietary/allergy requirements. The atmosphere is pleasant. The only negative is the sound level. After we were seated party of 10 was seated near us and the sound level rose to a level where it was very difficult for our party of 4 to converse. Go for the food and very able service, but ask to be seated as far away from any table set for a large group.
This place never disappoints. The food and service are consistent. They tend to struggle a little when it gets busy and service takes longer, but the staff is always pleasant and tries to accomodate you whenever possible. We go regularly. I would recoomend the experience to anyone looking for solid Indian fare.
We love going to the Bombay Bistro. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. They are helpful with making suggestions in regards to ordering. The food is outstanding and we're never disappointed.
The restaurant is clean and well kept. Great place to go as a couple, with the family or with friends.
The food is , fast food Indian at its best , the service is the WORST one has ever experienced!
The server bringing out the wrong order seemed to be the Order of the Day , every table was complaining about this ! They take ages to bring your food as they have messed up your order and take another eternity to bring your check , never once is one asked during the meal if all is alright , they are trained I guess to avoid eye contact with diners , or so it seemed !
Never dining here again !
