A friend of mine had recommended this restaurant, and since I was in the Midtown area, I thought I'd give it a try.
My date and I were seated right away, and the waiter was very nice and took time to explain the menu options.
From the appetizers we ordered, to dessert, everything we had was delicious! I had the vegetable samosas, which were warm and tasty. For the entree, I ordered fish in masala sauce, which was SPECTACULAR! And for dessert I tried their rice pudding--again, it was really good.
Prices are reasonable and service is good. If you're in the midtown area of Manhattan, definitely check out Bombay Palace.

I am definitely making it top of my best Indian restaurant in NYC.

Me and my husband had a great time at BOMBAY PALACE last night, the dinner was perfect, cool traditional instrumental music playing, overall cool ambiance. Welcoming crew and waiters were awesome. The food was mouth-watering, served in hot plates, from their entrees well garnished with their main course we took a great lamb chop masala, it was so good, ending with a typical Indian desert. It was so good, and the bill was reasonable with all the add-ons they give. Our night was completed at their modern look lounge, superb music and great atmosphere.

I was recently in Manhattan during Restaurant Week with all its great prix fixe menus, though these arre not extended into the weekends. Bombay Palace, however, has prix fixe all year long. Their prix fixe dinner menu is actually $5 cheaper than the Restaurant Week price and it includes an extra course and coffee or tea. The food was just excellent, they had a wide variety of dishes and everything I tried was fantastic. The vegetable samosa appetizer might have been my favorite but it is so hard to say! The service was great in the beginning of the night but dropped off a little towards the end of the meal; they seem to have a strange system of allocating waiters. It took us forever to get desert and the check even though drinks, appetizers, and entrees came out right away. But I would still definitely go back because the food was so good. And it didn't seem necessarily like the service is always bad but that something unusual was going on.
Overall the food and atmosphere was great and I thought very well worth the $29.95 prix fixe.

I found Bombay Palace listed on the Rewards Network site (dining for FF miles) and in the Entertainment Book, so I gave them a shot. This was a few years ago, and I continue to bring friends here when we're in the mood for a nice Indian meal. The staff is extremely accommodating (though they will try to push extras on you). The decor is very warm and the huge saltwater aquarium with many different gorgeous fish is always a delight. The FOOD, though, is the best part. The ""Prawn Patio"" appetizer is so fabulous, I sometimes order two and call it a meal. Their vindaloo, which I frequently order, is super-spicy and delicious, though you have to order rice if you want it. My friends and I will continue to return, especially if I continue to get extra frequent flyer miles!!!

My father-in-law recommended this restaurant after I had arrived in the city for the summer. I was craving aloo gobi and roti, but found another dish that tickled my fancy; chicken vindaloo. To warn anyone out there that has not had this dish, its hot, very hot. However, it is hot in manner that is not pure pepper or temperature. The spices which season this dish are subtle but combine to make a powerful statement. The chili and peppercorns did not overwhelm the cinnamon and cumin. It was wonderful. I cooled my palate down with a nice mango lassi. I have been back twice and have found the food to be always consistent.

My sister and I went there for an early dinner after visiting the MOMA yesterday. We ordered the prefix (?) meal, since it was between 5 and 7pm, but we had to ask for the menu when we sat down. First thing is the restaurant was FREEZING... My sister asked the waiter if they could raise the temperature a little, but he said the building is centrally located in another location in the building. The waiters were cordial, as well as the manager, but not very welcoming. The place is definitely glamorous looking, but everything looks so old and dated. The music that was playing reminded me of some old saloon scene, totally clashing with the decor and the large fish tank with exotic fish. Overall, the food on the prefix meal were great, but not as amazing as what other reviews have reported. The manager did bring over an additional dish of something lentil on the house, but we're not sure if this is commonly included. It was actually better than the 2 lamb dishes we had, though they were very good as well. Overall, the food was very good, but no different than some other cheaper Indian restaurants in the city. The restaurant's website says the prefix is $19.99, but it's really $29.99. No biggie, just that it could seem like they're unfairly trying to lure people in on the website with false information. Sounds like the buffet and dinner are amazing, so we may try that some other time if we're in the area... but to be honest it didn't leave me dying to go back. If you do go? Bring a jacket!
