Delicious and Authentic Indian Food

Bombay Indian has been in this location for quite some time and when I look around and see all of the restaurants that have open and closed, it makes me happy to know that Bombay Indian has remained.

Located in one of my favorite walking areas of the city, Bombay Indian is a great option for lunch or dinner. They have a great Indian Buffet at lunch for just $7.95, loaded with delicious, fresh and traditional Indian dishes. For dinner, they have a huge menu of selections that appeals to all types- vegetarian, spicy, or hearty. One of my personal favorites in the Chicken or Lamb Vindaloo. I also love Bombay Indian's Naan... Light, fresh, and a perfect compliment to every dish.

Excellent Indian Buffet

What an amazing lunch I just had. The buffet is filled with hot, fresh food, with a great selection of meat, chicken and vegetarian dishes. The also offer wonderful selection of condiments and sauces to accompany each dish.

The service was great and the price is right!


Enjoyable Indian dining in central San Francisco

The Bombay restaurant is immediately inviting as one enters, with murals on the walls and a nice ambiance. I ordered saag aloo, paratha, and saffron rice. Everything was well prepared; the spinach was delicious and had a good texture.

Best Okra in Town!

The Okra was sooo good! The sauce was delicious with a perfect spicy bite. Also had the samosas , lamb vindaloo and garlic naan. All were very delicious. I had it as take out, but I will definitely try dine-in.

Serving spinach during E.coli scare and rude and ignorant when customers asks about this

A friend and I went to this restaurant for dinner. I remember not thinking the food was very good lasttime I went but I thought I would give it another chance. Well, we were served spinach during the E.coli scare. My date politley told the waiter that spinach has been pulled by the shelves because of the E.coli scare and that almost 100 people have died. The waiter LITERALLY told us that there is NO E.coli scare and if there was, the spinach is fresh(fresh spinach is the worst for transmitting E.coli! - you can't wash it off!). My date proceeded to tell him that spinach has been pulled from the shelves and that he should tell the cooks. He disrespectfully laughed at my date like he was an idiot and LITERALLY said ""ya ya ya"" and walked away!! It is a real lack of respect to the customer to serve spinach during a national E.coli scare because you are too worried about how much $$ you would lose throwing it out and also ignorant(it is on tv and in the newspapers) to put people in the SF community in possible harms way. Think of what else they might do in the kichen to save $ that might be harmful to the customer?At the end, the waiter charged us and made us pay for the spinach dish whether we wanted to eat it or not due to fears of E.Coli! I told the waiter that I am never coming back to this restaurant because I told him that I don't think we have been treated right. The waiter sent the water person to wait on us the rest of the time we were there in response to this.

On a side note, when we first ordered our food before the above happened, I asked for garlic naan as opposed to plain naan that came with my particular dish, the waiter told me ""no, I can not do this"" even though I was willing to pay more. I ended up ordering vegetable yellow curry and it literally tasted like it came from a can (and then I remembered why I stopped coming to this place-there are so many great Indian restaurants in SF that serve great food, why go here?)

Poor quality, over priced, not consistent food and terrible service where the staff said manager was

I love Indian food and this is the third time I have been to Bombay hoping it will get better as its close to my home. We tried to get takeaway on this attempt. They were rude, understaffed and not really interested in working. We had a voucher to get discount on takeaway and they said it was not valid. Despite it stating valid anytime to Dec. I asked to speak to the manager and they said he was away and Kietak said he didn't give a damn about take aways as they were so busy. If you want cold, #slop# thinly dressed up as Indian food, with poor service and poor hygience this is the place for you. Very dissapointing.

DELISH Indian Food! Delivery! YES!

We have ordered online from Bombay Indian once to twice a month for the past two years, at least. This place is great! We used to order our standard: Pakora Palak, Alu Pratha (naan), Saag Paneer, Chicken Masala, and some sort of Tandoori. However, over the past 6-8 months, we've ventured from our ""norm"". So far, everything we've tried has been delicious! it's safe to say we've made it through at least 3/4 of the menu. Delivery is reliable, the food is always consistent & delicious, and without fail arrives piping hot. Specifications on the spiciness level is always right on. We love this place, and will continue to order from there and explore their menu often.

la classe restaurant!!

It is riddiculosly hard to write about this resataurant in 150 words or less, i have been around to loads of indian resataurants but the food and service i here was absolutely class. And not just the food, the ambience deserves appreciation as well. I will no doubt recomend this restaurant to anybody who savies delicious food and friendly servers. Two big thumbs up.

i'm drooling when i'm thinking of it

No jokes! this restaurant is the best around here when it comes to indian cuisine. If you talk only about food, gosh it taste really good. but too bad this isn't only about food the atmosphere is great, it is small so you don't find yourself in the middle of the noise. the decoration are just gorgeous, the price is good also, and most of all the service is really great. the waiter will be always nice, at your service and ready to give you some advice. To make it short a good place to go with your friends, or girlfriend if you want to enjoy the taste of THE INDIAN FOOD!
