We heard good things about the lunch buffet but they don't have the buffet anymore, this is probably why the place was empty. The food was just ok. I've had much better chicken tikka masala and the bread wasn't even Naan, it was Grilled Pita Bread. Won't come back, will try some of the other places.

I had dinner at this restaurant in March, 2017. There were only 3 other diners in the restaurant the night I was there - so service should not have been an issue with 2 waitresses around........naw! it took several minutes for the waitress to appear, 20 minutes to get my check, no service for additional water......you get the picture. Now... More

We really enjoyed our food; The chicken tikka was spiced nicely, a little on the sweet side. They were a little skimpy on the rice. The naan bread was very good. For the atmosphere, I would have expected much more reasonable pricing. Over $40 for two entrees at lunch with only water is not really a good value to me.

This was my favorite Indian restaurant. I went often for the Sunday lunch buffet and occasionally for the weekday buffet. I went Wednesday - no buffet. They only have buffets on Friday & Sunday now, so I had to visit a competitor.

This was my first time coming here with my friend. We came here because we heard they had some vegan options which is always good for my friend. The mango smoothie that I had here is probably the best I've ever tasted and I'm not much a fan of mango. The chicken dish with the rice had was outstanding! And... More

I had a lamb dish that was delicious. Advertised as hot but not too hot. Just the right amount of spice! The place was hopping on a Friday night yet I didnt wait long to be served. The staff is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Service and Atmosphere can only be rated as POOR (1*) after their most recent management change and location change - so sad!! Tables and Seats are dirty, rice all over also it was not busy with 3 tables only occupied. We needed to point out to the staff member seating us if he kindly would wipe the chairs so we... More

I have eaten here for years and have always enjoyed the food. Last night was no exception, however the prices have really gone up! My Lamb Rogan Josh was $18 and 2 glasses of house Chardonnay came to over $36!! Not sure I'll go back because of the cost, but the food is delicious.

My wife and I Groupon'ed Bombay Cuisine and initially weren't in love with the Apps we received. We are by no means Indian experts but have been on quit a kick recently. We started with Aaloo tikki which were good but looked nothing like we were used to - they went for presentation but it tasted good enough. The Samosas... More

The lunch buffet is generally stocked, but there are times when choices are limited. Good value on half off drinks during lunch. Food is very good.
