Last week we went for Lunch on Sunday. I was totally disappointed at the service. The buffet trays were almost empty, when we requested for extra food, we were ignored and my husb...

HORRIBLE 6/8/2011

I have ordered from here many times and they have delivered to my house ( 2 miles away) without any problem. Last night, I ordered food, my bill came to 60$. I waited over an hour in a half and it still wasn't at my house. They finally called ME and said that It is not worth their time to drive 2 miles away and deliver the food when i only spent 60$. more

Delicious food and super friendly staff! 5/26/2011

I went here for my anniversary and had an incredible dinner. The food is delicious, we had the tandoori salmon and they even brought us an extra serving because they thought the initial serving was too small (although we were stuffed!) The staff was very nice and helped us celebrate our special day. Can't wait to go back and I definitely recommend this place! more

The Paneer is to die for 3/6/2010

The food here is so good. In college its hard to get good Indian food, I've tried a bunch of places, but this is the only one that really hits the spot. Portions are average size, but the taste more than makes up for it. Try the paneer dishes. Pros: Food is awesome Cons: Closed from 2:30-5:30 more

Nice ambience, food was terrible 11/3/2009

Reading the reviews we went for the lunch buffet. The food was overpriced and the quality not so good as a vegetarian. The ambiance is nice but that's about it more

bad experience 10/21/2009

FOOD OK BUT THEY THINK PEOPLE COMING FROM INDIA ARE BEGGARS, FOR THEIR INFORMATION PEOPLE WHO CAN TRAVEL SO FAR AND SPEND SO MUCH OF MONEY ARE IN NO CHANCE TO BE INSULTED BY THE RESTAURANT OWNER. SITTING IN BEVERLY HILLS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU CAN INSULT ANY BODY. THIS IS NOT A PLCE TO BE IN - TRUST ME. I DID NOT WISH TO RATE BUT A MINIMUM RATING IS REQUIRED SO ONE STAR ONLY BY COMPULSION AND NOT BY CHOICE Cons: TREAT CUSTOMERS LIKE BEGGERS TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED more

Simply delicious 8/30/2008

All i can say is wow. The food was delicious - my wife is still talking about the mango lassi (it's been 2 months since we dined here). Located in Beverley Hills, we expected the prices to be outlandish, but that was not the case (a pleasant surprise). Pros: Food just like my mamma makes Cons: Make reservations on popular holidays, cause they get busy more

Great Food, Great Service 9/21/2007

The last review seems very skewed to me! I've been coming to Bombay Palace for 10 years and have been happy with the service and food every time. The decor is still lovely, the staff friendly, and the food quality top notch. The vegetarian selections are just as good as the meat ones. When you ask for the dishes to be prepared spicy, it really is! What a refreshing change from the oil laden, tasteless stuff most Indian restaurants try to pass off as ""Indian"" food. The food and service is great and I truly don't understand why some people had such a bad experience especially on Valentine's Day (very strange). I'm South Asian myself, so take it from someone who grew up on mom's homestyle food, you can't go wrong with Bombay Palace if you want good food. Pros: Food, good chef, good service Cons: N/A more

Bombay Palace - A ""Bomb"" 7/13/2007

After reading the reviews, had to try it! more

Quality Indian and warm, classy ambience without the expense 6/15/2007

Don't be deceived by the high end address and lovely white candle-lit interior of Bombay Palace. It is as welcoming and reasonably priced as can be, with fairly sized portions of masterfully made Indian cuisine. Our dishes were clearly composed of nothing but the freshest ingredients, and escaped the major fault of so many upscale, less authentic Indian establishments that prepare the recipes to be very dry. Bombay Palace gives you sauce galore and ample varieties of freshly baked, doughy naan to sop it up. One can eat and drink well here for $20-$30. In addition, the relaxed but upscale ambience makes Bombay Palace apt for small, quiet occasions. Pros: Food, value, ambience, appealing location Cons: Nothing more

too expensive 2/14/2007

I went to this restaurant on valentines day with my wife. First of all the menu was too expensive, and the quantity was too little. Besides this, we didn't know that the menu will be different today. The other thing is that the customer service was bad. The lady in pink skirt was very mean and rude.I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially on valentines day! more

BOMB-bay Palace - Tragic and Disappointing 2/14/2007

For some reason, this restaurant keeps getting recommended and I wish it would just close down for good. My wife and I ate there on Valentines Day - and what a mistake - again. (we've eaten here before and the staff is still incredibly rude but we wanted to give it another chance - ugh, can't believe we did). In all of my world travels and all the places I've eaten at, eating here has set a new benchmark in HORRIBLE. Absolutely the rudest staff in LA I've ever encountered, the food was overpriced, my wife and I were totally forgotten about and on top of that, our food was nothing more than average. No presentation, no care taken at ALL, the portions were small and the cuisine uninventive. Sadly, this ""palace"" is nothing but a glorified ""shack"" now and has slid so far downhill, it's not even worth going to it anymore. A terrible disappointment. We were treated SO horribly. Stay away - far far far away from Bombay. Awful. Pros: Clever lighting. Cons: Everything else. Food, service, value. All bad. more

avoid on holidays 2/14/2007

I tried to book reservation today, feb 14 2007 this afternoon valentines day , and somebody said that we are already booked and no more vacancy is left. more

Great food! Great service! 12/14/2006

We went for our first year wedding anniversary. Each and every member of staff made us feel on top of the world. My husband and I both work in the food and beverage industry and found the food tasty, the service prompt and the surroundings clean. Being Indian myself (married to a Frenchman), we would go back any day! more

Wonderful service, amazing food 11/9/2006

I really don't understand how Bombay Palace has gotten all these bad reviews - my husband and I have been going for years on a regular basis, usually on a weekend night. We love the romantic atmosphere and the cozy seating along the wall. The staff is always very personable, helpful and informative and we find the food amazing. They have delicious vegetarian dishes that we cannot find in any other Indian restaurant. We've gone by ourselves, with family and friends and without fail every time we go we always have a fabulous experience and whoever goes with us always leaves loving the place as well. more

Worst Indian 2/14/2006

The personnel is rude, ignorant, restless and careless. I am surprised to see a ""ZAGAT RATING"" at the restaurant, which doesn't deserve any kind of a compliment. ZAGAT has to be much more careful in rating such restaurants. I trusted them and visited the restaurant. It was an awful experience at a time of which has importance to me and my girlfriend. Prices are also so high, portions are so small, personnel is behaving the guests as if they are the ""guardians of prisoners"", they don't listen to the orders, don't care about the guests' comfort and i am afraid, ""ill mannered""... Stay away and stop by any other Indian.... even a ""drive-in"" would leave you with more joy and happiness..... Pros: location Cons: irritating attitude, high price, mediocre food more

best tandoori in town! 11/8/2005

the chicken tikka masala has to be, hands down, the best, most tender, and juicy kebab in town. the place is nicely lit and romantic too. perfect for a first date. more

As bad as the other reviews! 9/28/2004

We've dined here twice in a 5 year period. The food was comparable to Gaylord's (1 mile northeast on La Cienega Blvd. but Gaylord's much more professional). Let's not get into food, the issue here is dining experience. The staffs' very unprofessional and very incompetent, they should work in a buffet parlor instead which do not require any professional people skill. Sadly it's just their nature and they are ruining other peoples' dining pleasures. The owner's there but he's clueless, to them, it's just normal business as usual...very sad. Pros: location Cons: $$$$$, very unprofessional, not what it claimed to be! more

Bad Dining Review 9/14/2004

This place used to be good the last time I visited it a few years ago. Now I feel that it has just gone downhill. The portions are small, the wait staff obviously has forgotten the meaning of the word ""wait"". The prices are also out of touch with what other indian restaurants charge. Too bad.. Cons: , bad service more

An evening to remember 9/12/2004

A truly satisfying experience. I was skeptical to go after reading the reviews below but the Zagat guide convinced me to try it out. Must check it out for yourself to be the best judge. The food service and ambience compliment each other. Server was very helpful recommending dishes. Must try the Chicken Tikka Masala. Pros: great food, ambience more

HEAVENLY FOOD 9/3/2004

This restuarant offers the perfect balance between ambience and great food. Indian Cuisine at it's finest. The entrees are well-seasoned and the grilled kababs, mouthwatering.The staff was very helpful in suggesting the appropriate portions we needed. It was a great experience all around. Pros: food , service, ambience more
