Bollywood Cafe is BY FAR THE BEST INDIAN FOOD I have ever experienced. Not only is the atmosphere of the restaurant - including the friendliness and service of the staff and authentic feel - wonderful, but the food is absolutely delicious. In fact, I was not even much of a fan of Indian cuisine until I took the advice of a friend, after she assured my skeptical self that Bollywood would change my opinion, and gave in by going and taking another stab at liking it. Needless to say, I love it (at Bollywood, that is!) and highly recommend it to everyone I know who inquires about good restaurants of any cuisine, including people from relatively far away locations such as the South Bay!
Pros: THE FOOD, friendly and prompt service, authentic ambience
Cons: potential downside if you enjoy sitting outside, as the restaurant is right on Ventura Blvd but it is still nice (especially during sunset)
