We are always trying to search out better options for Indian food in Baltimore and were delighted with our dinner at Lumbini. We tried various dishes marked as Nepali specialties and were happy with them all -- very fresh and flavorful. Lumbini is not as inexpensive as most of the other Indian restaurants in town, but you get to dine... More

Was looking for a good curry and walked in off the street. The waitress oversold us on the food, describing the portions as small, which they are not. We had too much and, since we were staying in a hotel, could not take extra home. The food itself was fine. Splitting the bill caused a huge hassle. Worst of all,... More

The lunch buffet on Friday was very good, even 45 minutes before the buffet closed. In addition to salad and vegetarian (beans, saag paneer) dishes, there was chicken and fish plus two or three kinds of dessert. They has free chai tea. The mango lassi can be ordered for an extra charge and a little less sweet than what I... More

Living in the area, my boyfriend and I have tried most of the popular Indian restaurants. Lumbini is by far our favorite! It is the one we continually go back to! We typically get take out and its always delicious and piping hot. Our fav is the chicken tikka masala.

Went for the lunch buffet and was not disappointed! Super yummy. The tikka marsala was delicious as was the veggie curry. Oh and their chia tea is included in the buffet and it is YUM!

My memory may be faulty, but I remembered this restaurant as being better when I ate there a few years ago. I was eager to take my spouse along this time to sample the Nepalese specialties, but almost all the items were standard Indian fare. The other issue was that we arrived on purpose an hour before the buffet was... More

I love Indian food so I found this place that was close to my hotel. The ambiance is nice. And the service is top notch. The server was always available and willing to help. I had the Goat Curry. It was what I expected. No complaints at all. If you love Indian or Nepalese food, you can't go wrong visiting... More

The vegetable, chicken and goat selections were all good, but the seafood was not. Dishes were on the sweet side. The chai was a pleasant addition to a satisfying buffet.
