This is totally not what I expected from this restaurant. I went there after reading so many good reviews but was totally disappointed. I am an Indian and I know how curry should taste. I ordered a butter paneer and halibut coconut curry. The halibut curry was ok but the butter paneer was a total disappointment. This is a tomato... More

Curry is pretty much a staple in my diet, so much so, when I moved to Vancouver I had serious withdrawls and the hunt for my new curry favourite was on. I decided to try here based on the reviews on sites such as this. I have to say, I am very disappointed. This is not a good curry experience.... More

Great lunch buffet, though with a limited range of dishes. However, good quality ingredients and ambiance make up for the limited range - you don't feel uneasy as you would after a oily Indian buffet meal at conventional Indian buffet joints. Dishes range across the Indian food spectrum, and do not limit themselves to the standard Punjabi fare. Central location... More

Ok all you people from the UK are way too spoiled! Yes I have my favorite Indian and Pakistani places in London, and are they significantly better than what we get in North America, absolutely. Salam Bombay is not bad. The curry sauce and the Naan are both great. Yes the chicken is overcooked, but that is often the case... More

Salam Bombay is considered one of the best Indian restaurants in Vancouver for good reason. The food was excellent across the board. Service was prompt and courteous and they serve small and large groups equally well.

The butter chicken was the best part of the buffet! There weren't too many entree options, but I had plenty to eat. Naan is served to your table as part of the buffet purchase.

We had the buffet lunch here on a Sunday. The food was all excellent and the waiters very attentive in their white dress shirts and ties. This is a fancy white tablecloth restaurant with a second floor view overlooking the high end shops on Burrard Street. We walked out stuffed to the gills with wonderful Indian food. You will not...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
