Re: “Bombay Bistro

I have dined at Indian restaurants in many cities both small and large and never have I been more disappointed that at Bombay Bistro. The food tasted processed, almost like a Whole Foods frozen Indian meal. It was not at all authentic Indian food. You cannot cover bad recipes with spices. I was also alarmed at the rude attitude of the manager/owner. He lurked by the tables all through our dinner. He treated his staff poorly and in plain sight which added to the uncomfortable vibe. So, to wrap up my review, if you like processed Indian food with an uncomfortable vibe in a "strip mall setting...not to mention the dark ambiance in the room which added nothing...than you may or may not like this place but for me, I have found better Indian food at other Nashville restaurants with hospitality to match ! I will not be back to Bombay Bistro. Steer clear.

Re: “Shalimar

lunch specials Monday - friday are a killer deal. 12.99 for a butt load of food- nan, salad, etc. parking is terrible. worth it tho.

Re: “Shalimar

its funny when people will spend $80 on a bar tab and complain about good food prices. People who complain about that want cheap food, go to krystals is next door if you prefer. I will say, this restaurants struggled a bit. but Recently, This place has become the best indian restaurant in Nashville. Listen, this place has secrets that only loyal customers figure out. (1) ask for suggestions, though the wait staff except two folks, seem shy, they are your best friends. you just need to ask. (2) the meat is of higher quality- kosher (3) order chicken tikka masala; any ENTREE with the word jelfraze or saag (except the veggie side dishes. only saag paneer I like out of the sides); park in the back; (4) bring your own champagne and youll walk out with a bill that would've otherwise been double what you're paying (5) know youre putting good food in your system,

Re: “Tamarind Indian Bistro

Tamarind's is a fine place to eat: savory lamb vindaloo, delicately flavored biryani, fluffy naan, puffy poori and tasty aloo gobi.

Re: “Bombay Palace

Q-dang! I was so pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a restaurant. We showed up for dinner, only to find it empty. We pondered whether that was a bad sign or just a slow night. It was just a slow night! We shared a number of incredible dishes that were complex, spicy and just hands down amazing! The sauces were layered with flavors, velvety smooth and oh so creamy. The palak paneer was my favorite; out of this world! I haven't tried everything on the menu, but I don't think you could go wrong with whatever you decide to order. We loved it so much, we went back the next day for their awesome lunch buffet. $9.99 for all you can eat yumminess! There was a great variety of dishes for the buffet and i completely stuffed myself. Now for lunch, we had to wait. The small dinning room was packed, but again, well worth the 10 minuites we had to stand and salivate while others ate. I highly recommend this place if you love good food!

Re: “Swagruha

Great flavors, but the goat was very tough! The young girl said it was their most popular dish, and the spice was just right; I will try it again - maybe I just got a bad goat. Along with the Channa Masala (Chick Peas in a scrumptious curry cream sauce) it was almost more food than I could eat! The samosas are savory and (again) BIG, served with a hot/sweet sauce that really balances well with their cardamom. Included for the $6.50 price were two curries and a mountain of saffron rice, naan, and a super-sweet rice pudding to cool you off after the feast. {Indian accent here}-> Most excellent repast I must say, tank you beddy much Swagruha!

Re: “Bombay Palace

If Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, and other greats asked, "Where shall we eat?", I'd recommend the Bombay Palace! The food is flavorful, the service superior, and the price perfect.

Re: “Bombay Palace

Flavor, Flavor, FLAVOR! This is hands-down my favorite Indian restaurant EVER! The food is so magnificent-- I wish I could eat more than my stomach allots :) The buffet is awesome, fresh, plentiful, and a complementary mixture of dishes. The waitstaff is attentive and smiley. And the price is SUPER reasonable and worth every cent.

Re: “Bombay Bistro

This place was horrible. Not only was the service bad but the food was cold as well. This place had no A/C, even the employees were complaining about how hot it was. The owner was rude and the servers were super slow. I will never go back to this place ever again. I will stick to Sitar in Nashville or The Taste of India in Franklin.

Re: “Woodlands

I can't believe this has not been reviewed!?!?! It is hands down the BEST Indian food in Nashville. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't care when I'm here. Everything is that good. My favorites are actually on the Indo-Chinese portion of the menu which is very popular in India. If you are looking to blow your taste buds into the next stratosphere, try their: Hot & Sour Soup (better than most Asian restaurants), Szechwan Dosa (East meets, ummm, further East), and Paneer Chili (Chinese with Cheese, hell yeah!). You should also try the Salted Laasi which is better than I've had anywhere in the WORLD. The Chaats are are all pretty good as well. My wife and I usually go with the Papdi Chaat. The service is amazing, these guys don't walk, they run! And if you need awards on the wall to be convinced, they got plenty. Now stop reading my review and go to Woodlands!

Re: “Bombay Bistro

I had heard nice things so I went but was very disappointed.
Goat curry meat was too tough, veggies were watery, and their famous chaat was too soggy instead of being crisp. Maybe the owner was having a bad day.

I hope they would get their act together soon as I love Indian food and they are conveniently located in Franklin.

Re: “Bombay Bistro

Great Indian food, but why in the world are they so stingy with rice? I'm supposed to pay another $3 on top of my $35 takeout meal in order to get ONE serving per entree? One serving of rice per entree should be standard. Again, the food's really good, but it's already more expensive than other similar opitons, and charging extra for rice (which is so cheap, after all) makes it a losing value proposition.

Re: “Shalimar

Good food, but the portions have shrunk over the years. On our last visit my wife and I had a spoonful of aloo gobi each.

Re: “Best of India

Very carefully prepared, tasty dishes & friendly service. There seems to be less fat in their stews and curries than in those of many Indian restaurants. Spice level is American - i.e., 'mild' is generally quite mild, tho' one may encounter variations. We've never ordered anything we didn't like, but we are especially fond of the lamb kadai, chicken sag and shrimp jal frezi. The vegetarian dishes are also very fine.
