The two of us arrived about 8:30PM on last Saturday night. There were plenty of open tables (Duh!) land the service was excellent. We had a good to very good potato Pekora (love the coriander sauce). My wife had a good pepper chicken & I had a very good lamb vindaloo, both prepared as hot as asked for, which is... More

Bombay Bistro has been in the same location now for over 20 years. You don't get to do this by being bad. BB consistently serves meals that are authentic, well prepared and tasty at a price that leaves you with the feeling that you got a good meal for the money. I eat at BB at least once a month,...

The staff were very friendly. I ordered the chicken nilgiri korma. While the flavor was very pleasant, the dish lacked any heat and was on the salty side. The chicken breast was a tad overcooked and not very succulent. However, it was still enjoyable. The raita was nicely flavored and balanced. The paratha was a bit dry and somewhat cardboardy....

Lunch buffet but we went for dinner and had 2 great dishes. The non-veggie Thali which includes a chicken massala, a spicey lamb, a saag, a dal, Puri and Roti. was $16.95. The special of the day was a Rockfish ($17.95) with a delicious salmon ball topping the affair.

Whether eating in or taking out, our family has always enjoyed the food prepared here at Bombay Bistro. We've been regulars for more than five years and have rarely been disappointed. Chicken Tikka Makhani and Tandoori Chicken, with Raita, Dal and several Naans are our go-to selections.

Stopped in with a couple good friends about a month ago, and we absolutely loved the place. Really cozy feel, and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I've been eating Indian for years, and have been known to be a picky eater, but we were all blown away by the flavors and spices at this place! The Chicken Tikka... More

I used to come here several years ago and haven't been back in a while. Everything was fresh and delicious - the naan was flaky, the Thali was delicious, Sag Paneer was fresh and lively. I look forward to my next visit!

Bombay Bistro started a late night menu on Wed & Thurs nights and it is amazing! Aside from Silver Diner, previously there simply was no other food available in Rockville past 10pm, so to be able to get delicious and authentic Indian food at that time is a total game changer. The place was packed, and the food came out... More

Popped in for lunch the other day with some friends. Had the buffet. Definitely a buy! Tons of options for vegans an vegetarians, and the kitchen was super helpful when I had questions. Huge fan of the saag dish. Their roti is vegan! :^)

I've been going to this place for about 10 years. The food is always delicious, the service is always great. I tend to like the lamb vindaloo the best, but whatever you do, don't miss out on the Saag paneer
