super delicious! sitar music on the weekends too. I had a great time.
Indian Food at its best. – I just wanted to share with everyone that i have found the best indian food in denver. This place in cherry creek has the most favourful indian food ever. They have a good spread of buffet for lunch for very fair price. During dinner on friday days there is a guy who plays a classical indian instrument and they have a beautiful patio. I always had a complain with service in indian rest. all the other places that people here have mentioned well been to all and there service is terrible, little india : ( but bombay has very attentive and welcoming people and they know about their food. All in all very friendly place with amazing food.
When it's bad, it's bad – When this place is good, it's really good; but when it's bad, oh, dear.
I went for the lunch buffet today. The service was inattentive, as usual, but today I got the extra rude bonus of the server picking up the payment folder and actually SNORTING when he saw the tip I left (I left 25%!). He didn't ask if I needed change, didn't say thank you, didn't ask if I needed anything else (I was still eating); no, he just snorted.
The worst part, though, is that halfway through my meal I started to feel a little bloated. By the time I got home, it was obvious that I had a mild case of food poisoning. Probably the chicken in lukewarm cream sauce.
I'm sticking to Little India from now on. It's predictably good. The dramatic highs and lows of Bombay Clay Oven are more than I can take.
Non welcoming service and sneaky 18% gratuity added to bill – Very poor and slow non welcoming service with "dont care attitude", probably because they would silently charge you a hefty 18 PERCENT GRATUITY on the Bill and still bring you a slip with an empty TIP Line. I bet most innocent people would give them the TIP without noticing the 18% gratuity charged already in the bill.
PARKING is another big problem there. Never going back.
Terrible – We went here for valentines day last year. I mean to write this then but writing now because yesterday we had really good Indian food as take-out from Little India reminding me of why I actually like Indian food.
The Bombay experience was terrible. The food tasted like its been premade days ahead and re-warmed. The raita, so simple, was runny and quite possibly gone bad. When I sent it back the waiter explained that the chef had gone for the day and this is what he had premade. It sucked in every aspect. That was just one dish out of an overall bad experience.
I would not recommend this place to anyone. Try Little India instead;)
Repeat Customer For sure. – Went back to my favourite Indian Rest. In the whole world. And guess what it got even better. The food was amazing as always, the tikka masala which i thought coudn't be better than before was actually better this time. my friend never had indian food before so i took him there, nice ambiance specially friday with the live sitar player, very friendly owner and knowledgable staff. I have tired almost all of indian rest. In denver and no one compares to this little gem in cherrry creek.
WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!! – If you know how authentic indian food tastes like, then you'd know this place is not the one. it's very expensive in comparison to the portion you get. And the taste?? geeez...this is the worst indian restaurant i've ever tried. HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED.
Great place for a date – I recently took a first date there and she was highly impressed with the food and the atmosphere. But I think the best part was that she had never had indian food before and the waiter spent time with her explaining what everything was and how it was prepared.
She loved the food and the atmosphere and said she wanted to go there with me again on the next date!
Highly recommended for a date!
Great Food & Service - Loved it! – We loved this place when we visited, the staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was to die for! We sat the special seating and dined until late, it seems like this is the new place for dinner with my husband. I got him to relax and cuddle during dinner.
I would highly recomment it!

sub-excellent food from the sub-continent – We walked over to get take-out (i live very close) and chose Bombay because I just couldn't bring myself to get treated terribly at Cherry Creek Grille again, but that's another story. While the girl who helped us was very nice and informative when we had questions about the menu, the food took sooo looong to come out. We ended up getting drinks and waiting outside on the patio. It was an off time, and we were literally the only people there, so pretty inexcusable. The hostess, the girl who helped us, redeemed the situation by serving us some dips with that really light crispy unleavened bread (I don't know what it's called) common to Indian restaurants. Finally, the food came all packaged up and ready to go, and so did the check. For two people to get takeout and each have one drink it was over $60. Seemed very expensive, especially after getting home. When we got home to eat it, the veggie samosas were neither crispy nor delicious, they had very little flavor, a soggy sad sort of texture, and couldn't possibly stand up to the tamarind or mint sauces they came with. The chicken curry - korma (the most popular dish, i think, in the West) unleashed the right amount of heat, but really had no depth. The rice played a part as well, it was pretty much Uncle Ben's, which is fine if I'm at home and need rice quick, but not when its such a HUGE component to a dish. I was not wowed for the price I paid, and unless I can't drive to India's Pearl (an awesome new restaurant), I won't go back.
