Overall Take Out Service - food is fresh, caters to customer's taste with efficient service. The establishment is small yet, clean and staffed with service focused individuals. Food is always well prepared with quick service.

Well we ordered for a Shrimp dish and a Mix Veg Curry, and sorry to say the gravy tasted the same for both. What is more disappointing was the sweet taste which was prevalent in both the dishes. Satiates your crave for desserts. The Bread...More

This a Indian restaurant with a small seating area. The place is not too clean. The food is ok but expensive.

We are local residents who sometimes eat at Bollywood but more often use it for take-out. It is one of the restaurants that we patronize regularly. We think it's very good Indian food at a reasonable price. We have ordered nearly everything on the menu...More

Great authentic Indian food. They deliver and you don't have to wait to long. The food always arrives hot and the portions are generous.

This is a small place in Lexington Massachusetts. I don't think reservations are required. It's been in business for over 10 years now and every time I've eaten there I really enjoyed it. I often did take out because I lived up the street. Recommended.

Service was very poor. While we were waiting at the table take-outs were getting preference. The vegetable pakoras tasted like old, reused oil. Several of the dishes including Biriyanis seem made with ready made powder. Even the rice used was not quality Basmati. Only consolation...More
