My favorite Indian place around even though it is a chain (I resent food chains). The manager at the Provo Bombay house is hilarious.
Amazing food!! Awesome services. I was craving Indian food in Vegas and I found this restaurant on the strip.loved the food and the service. I wish they could work on the bathrooms though, it had no soap and tissues and was dirty. Nyways, I was here for the food and I liked it. More...

So glad we stumbled across this wonderful little restaurant. The people were so sweet and the food was great!
We go to Bombay India Cuisine all the time! It's a beautiful place and the service is amazing. The food is delicious! My kids like to go there and always love it.
Amazing food if i consider i am in india. Amazing hospitality and attention from Michael. Good price and great food
While visiting Vegas, we came across this excellent little restaurant on out second last day. To our pleasant surprise, the owner was a gujju so we knew we'd have a decent meal. The service was great and the food was very tasty, with good sized portions. I just wish we had discovered it earlier! More...
The food and service were great! Some of the best Indian food I've had and I've been to a lot of good places around the country.
I have been going to Bombay Indian Cuisine since 2013 and I have found the overall quality of food and customer services has been very very consistent and even getting better and better. Love the food specially their chef Paul's Paneer Tikka Masala, Palak Paneer, and Daal Makhani is the best you can get anywhere in Vegas as far as vegetarian dishes are concerned. Strongly recommended. More...
The food was delicious and the serving sizes were perfect. The tandoori chicken was very tender and flavorful.
Came here for lunch buffet. I'm not an expert on Indian food and all I had tasted good. Nice place clean with a sanitation grade A three times. I will definitely come back.
I am only commenting on the take-out service, and the few items I got Went here a few days ago (completely out of my way, as l live in Henderson) I called to order ahead the samosas, the chicken tikka masala, and garlic naan. l basically judge a Indian restaurants by their chicken tikka masala I have to say, that this was probably one of the best CTM's that I've had in a while l absolutely hate when the chicken isn't fully marinated (I'm not a huge meat eater in general, so l don't like to taste the meat if it hasn't been marinated well) You could tell that at Bombay's chicken was very well, but also cooked in tandoori style b/c the meat was falling off the bones, and was very tasty Not all restaurants cook the chicken tandoori style when using in a CTM dish The sauce was awesome, not too strong. It was pretty mild (heat wise), but then again I didn't think to ask for it to be spicy m sure they would've added more heat to it if had asked The samosas were excellent too! I was expecting a bit more garlic in the garlic naan, but it wasn't a huge deal it went well with my food anyways. Since I didn't dine in l can't comment on the service But, when I went to pick up my food, l saw that it was very trendy inside, and the decor was very pleasing (not your typical Indian restaurant...and l've been to so many) They had my food ready to go, and I was in there for probably 2-3 min total paying my b so in that regards service was great and saw that the ambiance was really nice too Anyways go try this the food that I tasted was awesome! More...
We were very excited when we found out that there is a Indian Restaurant opening near to Las Vegas Blvd. We went for lunch today. The food was excellent. It was less price 9.95 only Lots of variety for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. We especially liked the goat dish and the sambar and idly was on point! Great decor and ambiance. Very friendly staff. The kids loved the food also. Definitely would recommend this restaurant highly and we look forward to returning for another great meal! More...
If you looking for great food and great service come here! You wont regret it. If your not satisfied with something they change it immediately!
So good The Chicken Teaka masala was amazing it's a bit expensive if you go at night but the portions are big enough you can share taste and friendliness 10/10
Came to this restaurant by chance, while looking for good place to eat on way back home from Vegas. Me and my family was really pleased to have good quality Indian food. It was bit of surprise too to have such a good Indian food on Vegas Strip Garlic/Butter/Kabuli Naans were really awesome.We will definitely go back to this place during our next visit.A Kumar More...
I had the pleasure of being introduced to this delicious food at a holiday celebration...the standard has risen... everything was exceptional I can't wait for the complete experience at the restaurant
Got from grubhub. Good food for delivery. Alice was right and everything was tasty. Will go back soon. They wrapped to-go containers so nice. Really appreciate. Thanks so much Bombay! More...
Where do I start? Bombay Indian Cuisine was definitely Bomb. The atmosphere was comfortable and quiet. My waitress was a sweetheart and because I've only eaten Indian Cuisine once before I wasn't sure what to order, but she was patient and helped me through the menu. I ordered the Shrimp Curry which was amazing! I like spicy, so I ordered it at level 5 which was perfect. I ordered the rice which was so much better than Asian rice and went perfect with the shrimp curry. I also got the garlic butter naan and dipped it in the Curry sauce and if all blended so well. Highly recommend this place, I will be visiting again before I head back to Alaska! More...
I live in New York but this is the best Indian food that I've had in America. Especially the naan is a perfect 10. This place is a must visit if your in Vegas. Love this place and will visit this place if I ever come back to Vegas. More...
Amazing food. Quality food. Lot of varieties in buffet. Not had this good buffet in recent times.
I order from this place every couple of weeks (via UberEATS) and it's always really good. I've never visited the restaurant so I can't comment on service but as long as they consistently make delicious curries, I'll continue to order them!It's quite a bit more expensive than some of the competition (e.g. Mount Everest), but I prefer their curry so I think it's worth it. More...
We did buffet here and the food was good, service was nice and the naan was 10/10, the staff is friendly and brings fresh food every now and then.This was my 2nd time here and i think I will go again More...
Food is awesome at least you get good vegetarian option and restaurant is next to Encore Casino so no need to go anywhere else
The buffet is amazing. Great selection of my favorite dishes; the flavor and quality of the food is off the chain. Great ambience, nice decor, reasonable prices and just an all-around great dining experience if you love Indian food.
We went to this place immediately after it opened. buffet lunch was served hot and had a loads of variety. Amazing options for North Indian food lovers. They were serving Punjabi Palak which was just heavenly. Servers are well mannered. They serve hot naans fresh out of the oven. One suggestion to servers : it would be great if they explain how the plates are to be used before getting started. I could see a lot of guests taking their plates back to serving counter which is prohibited by the restaurant law. Servers need to educate their guests, something like, "please pick up a new plate for every single serving. You are being charged flat rate for each individual." More...
Great food, great service. I felt like I traveled to the Holy Land. Thank you Bombay.
I happened to walk by this restaurant. The service is friendly and the food is delicious.
good food. authentic cuisine. buffet lunch is reasonable. an array of food that you will feel like you are in bombay, india. while you are eatlier ng you get to bee exposed to authentic indian mysterious c too adding to the authenticity of the restaurant. we came tailend of the lunch so need to replenish the food but overall good. favorite is the samosas and padi padi, goat curry and tika masala are my faves! More...
Food is very good. They have buffet for 12 dollars for Lunch. I really recommend this place !
Delicious and accomodating! The naan was lovely and buttery and served hot. Would highly recommend the daal and paneer. Also tons of vegetarian options! Our server was also very warm and brought me a chai tea on the house as a kind gesture. More...
We were on the strip and starving after a night out. We explored multiple buffet options and found Bombay Indian cuisine!! We had amazing authentic Indian food!! The ambience was amazing. The best part was the fresh&hot naan served directly to the table! Very friendly service. Will be back next time I am in Vegas. More...
Great food and outstanding service! I wish this guys were in Chicago near my home. We were large group and they satisfied everyone's special request in the group. Chicken Curry was outstanding with garlic Nan. More...
I've had Indian food all over the globe (ex. India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, etc.) Bombay cuisine in Vegas is hands down the best Indian food out there! do yourself a favor and feast here to mend a speedy hangover. Egg curry and mutter paneer made my Vegas trip! Choose the right, eat Bombae cuisine every night! More...
Awesome lunch buffet. Highly recommend. Plenty of veggie of options and yummy chicken tikka Marsala.
Had lunch here with my boyfriend as soon as we arrived in Vegas. Fresh food, plenty of options, and very friendly service. The naan was the best we've ever had! Would highly recommend when you visit Vegas! More...
Some of the best Indian food I've had! Great food, great service and fair prices. We stop in every time we are in Vegas.
Great food at reasonable prices, convenient location on the strip and awesome hospitality. Highly recommended.
It was a wonderful experience. Black lentil curry was excellent. Service was wonderful. We stayed with traditional vegetarian curries, we'll be back soon.
Who. So much to choose from this place of Indian cuisine. The price is very good for this place for lunch buffet plus they hours are great because the lunch extends till 4pm. It's only $12.95 for lunch buffet. They have many seats available, has free WIFI, and it's located on the strip next to the Encore hotel. You can eat as much as you can. They are also rated A+ for health department. That's a good sign that they are very clean and reasonable place to check out if you like Indian food. More...
After 24 hours of drinking,gambling,walking the strip and drinking again, the lights of vegas were starting to blind me and the my body seemed immune to black coffee and water.Like a shining beacon of hope i spotted the words Bombay Indian cuisine.The husband has this theory that Chaas/buttermilk (salted Lassi) is the answer to the mother of all hangovers and boy it works like a miracle.This restaurant is located at las vegas blvd which is not very far from the strip, the area however is a little shady.When we walked in around 7:30 the place was pretty empty (never a good sign).We got a table for 7 people and were seated right away,the staff didn't seem to have a care in the world and loud bollywood 90's music was playing in the backdrop.We quickly ordered salted lassi for everyone and it arrived pretty quickly in tall fancy glasses (used to serve milkshakes in diners).Once i had a taste of that my doubts were cleared as was my splitting headache.The drink was delicious and refreshing.We went on to order Tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, chilli chicken and chicken biriyani with some naan (Indian bread).The chili chicken was great,other dishes were just average.The portions are good and eventually the staff warmed up to us and also lowered the volume on our request (I was actually starting to enjoy the music, guess i was high on buttermilk).Overall the food is three stars but i will give them a four for the buttermilk that saved my life literally.Cheers! More...

Pretty good place. We tried chicken biryani and vegetable biryani and both are really tasty. And the staff is friendly and helpful. I have tried coup different places in Vegas but this one is my best. More...
Delicious halal food
The buffet was fantastic! Excellent variety. As a veg, I was thrilled that there were so many dishes available. Pakora, channa, dahl, mixed vegetables, wonderful flavors. Service was also outstanding. My water glass never got below half full. They brought fresh naan to my table to go with the buffet. Servers checked on me several times "Did you like that one? try this dish next!" "don't forget to try the dessert, it's my favorite" More...
One of the best Indian food I ever tested, good service too, all tikka masalas are best here, my friends are happy with my suggestion to visit this place.
We just love love love this restaurant. We stay at Bellagio but make the trip down to the dodgy area just for this delicious unpretentious food.
I love eating their lunch buffets. A delicious spread and good variety. Kheer to pakoda are equally finger-licking. The naan is soft and has the right amount of ingredients. As of March 2015, they are undergoing some renovation - which might make seating and indoor temperature an issue for the next couple weeks. There's one more reason why they are my favorite: once I was there with my mom, and she required a special diet for religious reason for a certain day. And these guys, prepared special meals for her - without extra charge or cringing. There's rarely an Indian restaurant that is so Indian in spirit! 5 stars! More...
For a local to drive to the Strip on a Friday night to try Bombay Indian Cuisine one would think not. However, the restaurant is conveniently located off I15/Spring Mountain Drive near The Wynn and, most importantly, the food was delicious!! My daughter and I started with chicken samosas, lamb and chicken kabobs and onion bhajis. The chicken samosas were well balanced with flavor, and not doughy. The kabobs were moist and flavorful - I liked the lamb the best. Onion bhajis were yummy, I just added some mango chutney for some heat. For my main course I ordered the chicken tikka masala and the mutter paneer, both of which I would definitely order again. Each was nicely balanced with flavor, and portion. This was my sixteen year old daughter's first experience with Indian food and she was to go back and try more menu items. I agree. More...
Girls weekend in Vegas definitely required some recovery time at our resort and I found this restaurant through Bite Squad food delivery service. My roomie is vegetarian and the food was delicious and beautifully seasoned. This was our first time having Indian food. The vegetable fritters and garlic naan were our favorites! The vegetable Manchurian was delicious, too. I'm not vegetarian but I had it that way for my friend and the food was very filling and satisfying. The option of heat level when ordering is a good thing, too. More...
Very good food like indian test
We were late for dinner in the sin city and as we all know indian food is not available after 10 but these guys took us in and trust me (we have been having indian food for last 2 days) the food here was awesome..... They also serve jain (no onion, no garlic, no potato) food....which was pure heaven. Will def recommend..... More...
Stopped in for a quick lunch during the week, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of food offered. Naan bread was amazing, staff friendly, and food delicious. Only complaint was the bathrooms - smelled like there was a gas leak. Will definitely be back next time we're in town to lose some money! More...
Beyond amazing flavor and quality of food, awesome buffet and excellent atmosphere with friendly service! Best Indian food in Las Vegas!
I tried the lunch buffet, and it exceeded my expectations. I kinda stumbled upon it while walking from Encore on my way to Jack in the Box to try the famous deep fried tacos. Since Jack in the Box was farther away than I thought, I'm sure glad I opted for this instead.Great value, ambiance, service, selection, and taste. There were only a few of us there, including tourists from India who seemed very satisfied. The buffet included fresh naan, which was the best I've had in a very long time; a salad bar; deserts; soup; spring rolls; mini bhaji, pakora, and samosas; great vegetarian and chicken options; and curried goat. Completely satisfying and will go again. More...
I don't understand why this place only got 3.5 stars....my husband and I came here for the lunch buffet and the food was amazing. They havr many different options and the staff is very friendly.We were hesitant about coming when we first saw the ratings but are glad we went with our guts (no pun intended)We will be back! More...
Very good food. This was a last minute find and we weren't disappointed. Walking in and finding the people sat in are all indian is always a good sign.
If you are looking for the BEST indian food in Vegas, this is the place. We have been to many other indian restaurants in Vegas, but this place is unbeatable. Their butter chicken, shrimp saag, paneer tikka masala, naan and chhole is to die for. Come here for the best indian food in Vegas. More...
The Buffet had a lot of options to choose from, including dosas! Costumer Service was great as well. Not my favorite Indian food, but totally decent.
Had the buffet lunch at the recommendation of my fellow Yelpers. I really enjoyed my lunch. The food was flavorful and the service was very nice. I ordered a glass of wine and the charge was very reasonable at $6.00 for a glass of chardonnay. I will return to the restaurant. My favorites on the buffet were the chicken curry and the spinach dish. Good value and a good lunch on the strip. More...
This is simple. If you like Indian Cuisine and you are on the north end of the strip. You need to here.
This place was a saving grace to our vegas vacation. we stayed at the wynn, right next door, and expected to gorge their much hyped thanksgiving fiasco only to find out there was a steady 3.5 hour line all day long! we were not expecting to dine Indian, but the food was sooooo good that we were able to look past the great disapointment of not partaking in the anticipation traditional foodie heaven that we looked forward to all year. mind you, my sweet baby and I love indian food and travel a lot, always trying out different indian restaurants all over the country. This place was by far one of my favorites that have been to.common american mistake rule #1: never order from the menu in an Indian place that offers buffet!!!THis buffet especially was super fresh and all the food was well prepared with love. the chutteneys were super flavorful home made, they use really great recipes.Moreover, the peeps in there were super friendly! A great unknown treasure next to all the snooty, tourist-trappy, overpriced pretentious places in the hotels that are not even that great, for a fraction of the price. More...
Great location on the north end of the strip near the Encore resort. I've been to several Indian places in Vegas and thus far, Bombay is the best! They have friendly service, nice decor, a TON of menu variety, and of course delicious and flavorful Indian food. I will definitely be back! More...
Very good lunch buffet value at $13. Limited selection but had all I wanted.
Very Authentic and Delicious food I ever ate in USA... I used to not write reviews but the taste and service let me login to yelp... Must try chicken tikka masala, chicken biryani and veg malai kofta with crispy garlic naan... I also had masala dosa with coconut chutney and sambhar that was outstanding I never ate it like this before.... Must try this.... More...
Very good food. I did't go for the buffet but instead ordered off the menu. The buffet looked good but I was looking for a very specific dish that was not part of the buffet. Service very good, I was checked on frequently and my water was filled serveral times without having to ask. Price is reasonable for the quality of food and service. Don't be scared off by the strip mall it's in, it's all good inside! More...
Oh, my goodness- I've never eaten at two restaurants on the same day before, but I did today! My evening meal was at Bombay Indian Cuisine, which sits in a plaza in the shadow of the Encore, and very close to a wedding chapel or two. Immediately upon entering the restaurant I was hit with a lovely aroma of deliciousness- it was fabulous. It was about 6 pm on a Saturday and there were only one or two other occupied tables.The space is nothing special- no carpeting, no "atmospheric" lighting. There are two dining areas that look exactly the same: hard, black wooden chairs (not the most comfortable, but serviceable) with bench seating on the wall side. The bench seats were topped with high, shiny, black, tufted backs. I liked the lighting they used over the tables, except that until our meal was served, our fixture was blinking with almost a seizure-inducing regularity. I'm glad it stopped or I would not have been able to eat at that table.The food was deeeeelicious. We started with the chicken pakora, which actually wasn't anything special as far as seasonings, but was sufficiently enjoyable. I got rice and naan to accompany my entree: the lamb tikka masala. I don't know why I chose lamb- I just didn't want chicken or paneer. The entree was a very attractive deep orange/bright red color, and was both rich and satisfying (photo has been uploaded). I could have done without the meat altogether and just sopped up the sauce with the naan, it was so good.I must say that I was surprised that they gave us burnt naan. Had it ALL been burned I would have sent it back, but only the top layer of pieces came out that way. I didn't mind that some of it was crispy/crackery, but I preferred the warm, soft pieces underneath (and I'm not a fan of charred bread!)The Bombay masala tea didn't taste very "Bombay masala" to me, but it was refreshing. It could have been Nestea or Lipton, for all I know. On a hot day I would have really enjoyed it, but the restaurant was cold enough that I kept my jacket on the whole time.The service was great- the servers were very polite and unobtrusive, and made sure we were well attended throughout our visit. They didn't give us a hard time when we presented a restaurant.com coupon, which I appreciated. I'd have no problem coming back here! More...
We just came back from Vegas, we had lunch there today, well, for Vegas, this is considered too small for a buffet, they had two kinds of rice, fresh out of the tandoor naan, and about eight to ten options of both meat and vegetarian dishes (apart from a salad, a soup, few chutneys and the two deserts), the quality was great, teh seating atmosphere was very comfortable, the price was right, the service was extremely attentive, the waiter actually came and offered to explain about the dishes, but, since we are Indian food veterans, we didn't needs his explanation., There was no lines, and we didn't have to walk half a mile through the casino to get to the buffet, you can't go wrong here, we will definetely come back when we visit Vegas. More...
Here is the reason i am giving them 5 star NOW. I was looking to eat a south indian dish call DOSA for all over the town and, All the indian restaurant say they make DOSA but when you sit down and try to order they come up with lame excuses for not to make that. So call this place and ask they offering this plate and the person who answer the phone said they offer Dosa all day everyday. I was do thrilled and went with my wife to the dinner and, thinking last time we had shitty Dosa at Bollywood Grill on Sahara and Rainbow, Also Indian masala in Rivera Casino. They all made with old rotten taste vegetables in side and i couldnt even eat them with the spoiled food smell. Here i am at Bombay india Cuisine waiting.... WOW i mean big WOW!! its huge like a golden gate wrapped up and crispy and fresh smell with fresh Souses all around me. I was asking the waiter why you guys not telling people about this plate. Seriously, it was the greatest DOSA plate i ever had after long time. I mean longest time. Then my wife order Goat Biriani for her and it was as good as Dosa. We had great time. Interior exterior of the place is also making great appetite. Finally the owner told up he found new chef from South india Few weeks ago, and that's the person make the different for the food. Great!!! Super great!! we are going back!!! More...
As the months have passed since our last visit to Bombay (which was only days after our first visit), I have to ask, "Why haven't we been back?"The service at Bombay is really top-notch, and I generally find Indian restaurants to be reliable in their warm welcome and swift attention. Bombay exceeded my expectations.We first visited because, holy moly, an Indian dinner buffet? Really? Game-changer!Alas, that first glimpse of the dinner buffet almost sent me back out the door. Tomato soup? "Yellow curry?" Were they trying to court the tourist who might be more comfortable with the idea of "buffet" than "Indian"? When we peeked under the dishes (almost everything was covered), nothing looked very good, or much like what you see on other Indian buffets.But, there we were, and parking was a dream (something that keeps me away from my former fave, Tamba), and the fun of going somewhere new is my own catnip. (Plus Indian restaurants always have that clean, cold water like nowhere else. Bombay is no exception. I've asked for their filtering secret, but waiters just smile and turn away... like girls in a Don McLean song.)We settled into a big booth and peered at the decor. Hmm, former Chinese restaurant? (Seriously, does anyone know?) I kept staring at a photo mash-up of the Las Vegas Strip and India that suggested if you exit the Venetian just right, you'll step into the Taj Mahal.We started with samosas. With samosas I want fragrance, slight crispiness, not too much dough, and a spicy filling. Bombay satisfied me with texture and taste plus two fresh-tasting chutneys (mint and tamarind), although I could've done with a bit more fragrance. (I say that about everyone except Kamal Palace in Long Beach. They ruined me!)On our second visit we also had paneer pakora. Fine, not too dry, fun to try once.The list of vegetarian dishes was commendable, but I didn't see my favourite: shahi paneer. I lurve shahi paneer so much that I'm thinking of a name change. (Hey, it would only be one consonant, and it might help people finally pronounce my name right.) Indian foodies in the West seem to tend toward healthly eating, so I know this is so uncouth to admit, but I just adore-adore-adore a creamy sauce. Shahi paneer, aka royal paneer, is aptly named in this category.It's not fair to dock a restaurant because they don't carry one dish. Then I'd be no better than those little kids who will only eat chicken nuggets. But, as almost every other Indian place in town (that I like) has shahi paneer, including the little place in the Riviera food court, this wasn't boding well for repeat visits. I like new things, but I also like what I like.As long as I'm making confessions, I'm only really happy with an Indian main course if it has paneer in it. I know, I know, that's as terrible as admitting my love of shahi and makhani sauces. Don't misunderstand me, I squeal over aloo and pakora and kofta for sure, but paneer... cheese... that bar is set. Someone open a Wisconsin-Indian fusion restaurant and I will be complete.Paneer dishes at Bombay include palak paneer (alas, the only Indian food I dislike - that's right, I hate cooked spinach - worst poster child for vegetarianism ever, I know), mutter paneer (nice, but can be bland with an overbearing amount of peas), and paneer tikka masala. I went with the last option. The paneer tikka masala was solid fare, as was the naan (plain and garlic) and rice, although the wording on the menu is a bit unclear over what's included. On each visit, we ended up paying separately for both naan and rice despite the words "Served hot to eat with bread or rice" above the list of dishes, which would imply that one is included. This is followed by the somewhat contradictory "Add $2.00 to make entrees combo served with one Naan/ half rice order." We asked, but I have to admit that I'm not sure what the server said, other than it sounded like this wasn't available. Hrm.Overall, it comes back to the word "solid." Not "transportive" nor "breathtaking," but also not "iffy" or "meh." Prices run a little high compared to other area Indian restaurants (Gaylord and Origin excepted) but are right on the mark if not reasonable for the Strip location. To answer my own question, I think we haven't gone back just because there are other places where I can get exactly what I want. But, with the closures of Kohinoor and Saffron - Flavors of India (not to be confused with the Eastside place), Bombay - a "solid" 3.5 for me - gets bumped to four stars. Or: 2-star buffet, 3.5-star taste, 4-star menu variety and ambience, and 5-star service and location/parking. More...
What a pleasant surprise this was tonight.My wife and I discovered the existence of Bombay, in the shadows of Wynn's "Encore" tower and were immediately attracted by the words "dinner buffet" - a rarity when it comes to Indian restaurants.The restaurant is conveniently situated just across the street from Encore in a large complex with plenty of parking. When we went in we were immediately struck by the unusual decor, all blood reds and deep blacks, definitely a Chinese restaurant in some past incarnation. We asked to take a look at the buffet and the friendly hosts told us to go right ahead.The buffet looked OK enough, however on this particular evening it was missing some of our key favourites so we decided to order from the menu.At first I thought the prices were a bit high. It was understandable, I thought, given the Strip location. We ordered a serve of Samosas, Chicken Tikka Masala for me and Paneer Tikka masala for my wife, with a side of basmati rice and garlic naan and plain naan.The samosas arrived and I was surprised and pleased to see three instead of the two mentioned on the menu. They came accompanied with the usual tamarind and mint chutneys and also a marinaded vegetable chutney. I thought the tamarind was especially excellent. The samosas were very tasty and I appreciated the crispy fried texture of the crust which made for a nice change from the more doughy (but still good, just differently) crust from other restaurants. The filling was aromatic and not too dense. Just right.When our main dishes arrived I realised the prices weren't higher after all. For an Indian restaurant these portions are huge. Yes, they still come in bowls that look small compared to what you expect to find at American restaurant, but they are deeper and wider than the standard Indian serving and for the first time in, I think, ever we actually had to get to go boxes to take our leftovers home.Initially we both thought the food was "OK enough", however these dishes really improve after a couple of mouthfuls and your palate adjusts to the complexities of the seasoning. My chicken was delicious and while my wife usually prefers a Shahi Paneer (which we didn't see on the menu) she enjoyed her Paneer Tikka Masala. The naan was very good, I particularly liked my buttery garlic naan and the rice was a simple yet delicious accompaniment.Our server seemed genuinely pleased at our questions about how long the restaurant has been open (apparently since November) and was delighted we'd enjoyed our meals. His demeanor made Bombay one of the least threatening most relaxing Indian meals I've ever eaten, surprising for its location. We will definitely be back.On our way out the door, after we were presented with a loyalty card which offers 15% discount off a future visit, our host encouraged us to "tell our friends", so here I am - telling my friends. Bombay is well worth a try if you're into Indian food. More...
