Like another TripAdvisor reviewer, we were staying at The Garland hotel and found the restaurant while on a walk one morning. Went back for dinner that evening and were very happy. We have a couple of favorite Indian restaurants in Washington DC and Bollywood Cafe is as good or better. Really cute place; super attentive staff.

I visited the Bollywood Café with my wife. We went there at lunch time in a week day and the place was almost empty, just one table occupied. We live two blocks from there and always wondered if it was actually good, since the outside look is not really attractive. What a surprise when we walked in! The place is... More

We visited this lovely restaurant when staying at the Beverley Garland Hotel. It is only a 10 minute walk and well worth it. Small, intimate with the friendliest staff and great food. We have lots of Indian restaurants in the UK but this could rival any of them. We had the mixed starter, chicken tikka masala, chicken bhuna with the... More

The sauce blended beautifully with the biryani. Shrimp Coconut Curry This was one of our favorite dishes. The shrimp were big, tender, and succulent. The coconut based curry... More

I was staying at the Garland Hotel for a conference. It's only a short, 5 minute walk up Vineland to Ventura Blvd where Bollywood Cafe is located. They open for lunch at 11AM. Dinner opening is later. The staff are very friendly; largely young, personable staff who obviously have a following of local, take out patrons. I ordered a favorite:... More

Small, unassuming yet intimate setting. High-touch, warm attentive service. Flavorful cuisine catering to your needs. My all time favorite place for Indian food and great cup of chai. Good for couples, business, groups (and children at lunch).

Visiting my son and this place is right around the corner. I wanted some Indian so I ordered some to be delivered. I had the Chicken korma meal, it came with naan, rice, and dessert. The food arrived fresh, hot, and decent. I really liked the soup. I ordered way too much and had some leftovers for lunch next day.... More

Had dinner here as we were staying conveniently at the El Royale Hotel next door. It was my 14 year old daughter's first Indian meal and we were both totally impressed by the service and food. My daughter loved it so much when we woke the next morning she asked if we could go back for lunch! The outside of... More
