I had a lamb dish that was delicious. Advertised as hot but not too hot. Just the right amount of spice! The place was hopping on a Friday night yet I didnt wait long to be served. The staff is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Service and Atmosphere can only be rated as POOR (1*) after their most recent management change and location change - so sad!! Tables and Seats are dirty, rice all over also it was not busy with 3 tables only occupied. We needed to point out to the staff member seating us if he kindly would wipe the chairs so we... More

I have eaten here for years and have always enjoyed the food. Last night was no exception, however the prices have really gone up! My Lamb Rogan Josh was $18 and 2 glasses of house Chardonnay came to over $36!! Not sure I'll go back because of the cost, but the food is delicious.

My wife and I Groupon'ed Bombay Cuisine and initially weren't in love with the Apps we received. We are by no means Indian experts but have been on quit a kick recently. We started with Aaloo tikki which were good but looked nothing like we were used to - they went for presentation but it tasted good enough. The Samosas... More

The lunch buffet is generally stocked, but there are times when choices are limited. Good value on half off drinks during lunch. Food is very good.

Had the butter chicken, naan, raita and Malbec. It was all good. The service was ok. It's a good solid Indian restaurant for west Michigan. The buffet at lunch is always good.

The first time I ate here I had no idea what Indian food was like. The ingredient lists were filled with unfamiliar words. We all shared bites of the dishes we ordered and every one of them was delicious. You can choose the amount of heat to your own dish so if you like it mild it will be and... More

We went to try this place on a Sunday and were surprised that they had a buffet. Flavors are excellent and warranta second, third or more visit. Great naan. My only complain is that waiters shouldn't assume that you just want water with your food. I wanted something else and it took a while to get so ebody's attention to... More

Poor Bombay one of my favorites. Had to walk out tonight as the vibe was awful. Enter one door and it's a construction mess that has been on going on for weeks now. Enter another door and the new dining area ambiance is awful. Dirty tables everywhere All the great staff seems to be gone. I am sure the food... More

Its good quality food. a bit creamier and mellowed down for locals, wouldn't call it 100% authentic but very close. Indian taste palate would be left hanging a bit, but its close to the best Indian food because of consistency and decent quality in Grand Rapids. So there - not many authentic tasting options.
