Editorial Review by Billy Gil – University District Indian restaurant serves seafood and Tandoori meats in a traditionally decorated setting.
Average restaurant, but nothing more. – Tried the place. It was mediocre. That is to say, less than I could cook on my own. For value? Definitely not. Maybe if they delivered but even then, this place's flavors just didn't suit me at all.
Spices did not seem fresh. My girlfriend got korma. Had a taste of dehydrated onions remixed into the sauce at too high of a concentration. The pakoras were very starchy. Lots of chick pea flour. Tasted more like falafel w/ curry powder. The paneer tika masala was ordered 5 out of 6 on a scale of spicyness. I would rate it a 3. Spices seemed somewhat underpronounced. Could taste a bit too much yogurt. Too acidic.
We found both of the food mostly bland. If you like Cedars (right next door too Bombay Grill) you'll probably find the food comparable.
I great spot for good food and sorta romatic – I went on a date here and was very impressed. They have a large menu and everything we ordered was very good. The place is romantic, sorta, it's not really romantic but will do. the prices are about average, and they have a good selection of wine and beer. Check it out.
Go back again and again! – This place is fantastic! In the last 2 years I have been to this place more times than I can count. The food is wonderful and the service attentive. Frankly, after reading some of the reviews that were negative, I wondered if these folks were talking about the same restaurant! Try the Weekend Brunch Buffet. LOTS of choices all expertly prepared. Great Naan!
My favorite Indian Restaurant! – This place is great. Great service, great food, and it one of the few Indian restaurants that has wonderful ambience. Also it can be pretty cheap to dine there if you have the Entertainment card.
Better food, more options, great service – I'm suprised by a lot of the reviews for Bombay Grill. I've been several times and always had friendly service. The food is EXCELLENT. I'd say better than any other Indian Food in Seattle. The menu is broader than most of the standard options you get at Indian restaurants. Specials are usually fantastic. And thank god the food is actually spicy. I'm sick of ordering spicy food at Asian restaurants only to find out they have "dummed down" the spice for the less spice inclined palates.
I thought the lack of parking comment by another reviewer was funny. What other restaurants are you going to that even have a free parking lot option? Most places its just street parking or a pay lot, and that really has nothing to do with the quality of the restaurant anyway.
Did not enjoy!!! – You know i have to say i was dissapointed on my visit. I went with my boyfriend and felt ouw waiter was really rude to us. The drinks were fine, however the food was really hot for us, even though we ordered really mild. We felt really rushed out of the place i guess because it was their closing time, so they turned their music down and started dimming their lights. Overall, i think there are better Indian restaurants to eat than Bombay Grill. I really don't quite recommend it.
Decent Indian Food – The customer service is good yet I felt pressured into buying sides and server wouldn't take no for an answer. The quality of the food is somewhat better than other Indian restaurants around the area. We were well accomodated. Parking lot is small and there weren't any street parking on a Saturday night. The Thali dinner was good. Chicken Tikka was good but chicken could have been cooked longer. The mango margarita was yummy. Overall, average food quality and good customer service yet prices were kind of high for dinner. Decent Indian food.
I love this place! – I have returned to the Bombay Grill again and again. The food is always outstanding (Sri Lankan curry, eggplant bharta, vegetable biryani, garlic naan, everything we've tried!), and on top of that the owner and staff always recognize us and are exceptionally friendly. Have NEVER had a bad experience here... even my 80 year old Nana who likes mild food loved it!
