My son and I had lunch at Bombay Bistro. We both had the lunch buffet which was very good. Waitress was attentive, kept my water glass full. At checkout time, however, she refused to accept a dining certificate I presented. Said it was not good for the buffet even though there was no such restriction on the certificate.

Based on the unassuming external appearance of the building, we were pleasantly surprised by the authentic Indian decor inside. While they had regular seating, they also had an area with short chairs and booths in Indian style. This was interesting to sit in because it was different. The restaurant was not busy (Sunday evening) and we were therefore relaxed with the kids. The food was excellent and the service was great.

Love this place; small but great variety of items on the buffet. Extremely affordable. Authentic. Lunch buffet is my go-to. The only place I like to eat Indian food.

This place looks like nothing more than a converted Pizza Hut from the outside. But inside much has been done to disguise the less than inspired architecture. And basically, you forget all about that when the food arrives! We started with a calamari appetizer, which was unlike any calamari we have had elsewhere. Very interesting flavors and textures, especially the curled crispy cracker that came with this dish. Hubby had Vindaloo, served in a pretty copper pot and I had a chicken kabob. Service is polite and prompt and the food was really good. I had a bite of the Vindaloo and whoo baby! I needed some water with that! We loved the Naan bread which arrives hot and slightly charred. This is a really good place for an Indian meal. We will return!
