As well travelled British ex-pats who love Indian cooking, we've spent over 5 years looking for good quality Indian food in this area. The Bombay is perhaps in the least likely location, as part of a Days Inn motel, but is in our opinion the very best Indian restaurant in the Torrance area.
We've eaten both a la carte and from the buffet menu, and have always been very happy with the quality of food, service and surroundings. The food is well prepared and appropriately spiced - by that I don't mean hot, but the proper flavours that belong to certain dishes. The texture is right, and not too watery for vegetarian dishes. Meat dishes contain lean cuts, and generous portions. Service is just right, in my view - appropriately attentive, giving an impression that if there's any problem it will be treated seriously, as opposed to the usual throwaway "everything okay?". There is always a manager walking the floor, and we invariable get courteous, helpful and welcoming service.
If you go for the weekend buffet ($12.99 as at October 2012) I think you won't be disappointed. For this price you get a beverage of choice (iced tea is good here, as is mango lassi), nan bread freshly prepared and delivered to your table, and a good range of starters, entrees and 4 desserts (with no Jello and plenty of cardamom!)
We've tried the takeout service once, and found the food very well packed and presented. We live outside the delivery area so can't comment on that service.
For a date night the ambiance is good. Unobtrusive, with privacy and quite a bit of intimate style for the price.
