“COLD, old decor, nice food.”
“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.”
“The food was just excellent, they had a wide variety of dishes and everything I tried was fantastic.”
“This is the best place in the area for Indian, much better than Jewel of India, Dawat, and Utsav.”
“But I would still definitely go back because the food was so good.”
“The staff is great and recognizes their regular customers with great courtesy!”
“Its in midtown so caution on the prices, as some of the elitists may not feel justified in paying nearly $15 for a lunch buffet that is tasty as it is well prepared.”
BEWARE FOOD POISONING! First visit to the restaurant on Friday night. I ordered a chicken korma but realised after a bite that I'd been given lamb instead. At the time, I was feeling generous, so didn't complain. Fast forward 5 hours or so and it was clear that I'd got food poisoning. I called the manager of the restaurant last night about that this and he took my details and promised to call me back. He hasn't.
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.
Crazy happy hours with great Indian food. I went to many Indian restaurant but it's only Bombay palace that I went more than once. Their new menu recently being introduced is so good, the food combination is just whoaw....great apertizers makes mouth watery just by looking at it. I ate their corn masala, n another new type of naan, which was salmon naan..ohhh god...it's so nice..you got to try it....the price on overall is Reasonable For the service and the food. I am definitely making it top of my best Indian restaurant in NYC.
Great Dine & Great Lounge. 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.
deff worth the visit.
We went here a week ago- party of 5 at 7pm
deff will come here again soon
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.
Attentive Staff. This place is great for large crowds, but I've had much better food for half the price. The staff was pleasant and attentive, ambiance average.
I love this place!. 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!!!
Upscale Indian dining in midtown, with a wide-ranging menu..
This branch of Bombay Palace, situated directly across from '21,' is ornately decorated, with a crystal chandelier, dark wood panelling, and a large tank of tropical fish overseeing the proceedings. The extensive menu of largely Northern Indian cuisine includes lobster masala, tandoori trout and stuffed baby eggplant. Several prix fixe menus are available as well, offering dishes like clay-oven Cornish hen and lamb kebabs, as well as a vegetarian thali dinner.
Best Chicken Vindaloo. 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.
