“Decent Food, Friendly Atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

By no means is this a five star restaurant. It's in a strip mall and is nothing fancy on the inside but don't let that stop you from dining here. The food was good, the staff very friendly and helpful. We thought it to be a little pricey but not to bad. We started with an order of Keema Samosa that was a bit on the bland side. I expected a bit more flavor in the minced meat to balance the pastry. I had the Lamb Vindaloo that was nice and spicey as it should be and very tastey. Stacey had the Chicken Madras that was very good with a slightly sweet coconut and curry sauce. Our server called himself Kojack, a bald man with a supposed fascination for tootsie roll pops. He appeard to be the owner or manager who was playing bartender/waiter for us. A really nice guy that Stacey had fun with. While I have had better Indian food, this is the best in the area and we will definately return.

“I was already warned...”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I always ask local Indians to recommend good Indian restos in town. All those I asked said Daytona Beach really has none.... But I got the cravings. So, found few positive reviews online about Bombay Grille. Went there on a Friday night and tried their dinner buffet. It was ok, but I thought it's pricey for $17. I could have given just 2 stars 'coz the manager's a character -- racist!! But i'm rating the food quality...3 stars would do.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

I had made reservations at Bombay Grille for my post-graduation lunch only to hear afterward from some of my friends that the food wasn't all the great. I thought about changing locations but went ahead with the original plan in the end. The manager was very helpful to accommodate our needs and much to my surprise, the food was very very good. Staff kept a careful eye and made sure nothing ran out at the table. I asked around and pretty much everyone in my party (35+) was delighted with the food as well. I highly recommend this place. Perhaps a bit on the pricey end but worth every penny for a special occasion. Also, plenty of vegetarian options. The only thing I might say against it is that outside of the building is probably not the most inviting when you first see it, but I hope they have plans to perhaps move to a better location; however that would not keep me from recommending the place to others and from visiting again.

“Weird Operation”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Sometimes the food is GREAT! But last time I went there, they would not let us order of the menu. Kitchen wasn't open and accepting orders! What is the deal with that? We were told to only get the buffet. What type of restaurant does that? When we do get a dinner service the food is great, but they skimp on the rice. When you get take out, you get a lot of rice though. Overall I would definitely eat here again, but be careful.
