San Diego Restaurants

Bombay Exotic Cuisine of India

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

Notable for its sultry, elegant dining room, complete with a waterfall, Bombay employs a chef whose generous hand with lush local produce gives each course a colorful freshness reminiscent of California cuisine, though the flavors definitely hail from India. Try the tandoori lettuce-wrap appetizer and any of the stuffed kulchas (stuffed flatbreads). The unusually large selection of curries may be ordered with meat, chicken, fish, or tofu. The curious should try

the dizzy noo shak, a sweet and spicy banana curry. The lunch buffet, served every day from 11 to 2:30, is an excellent way to sample a variety of delicacies.

Food full of MSG

The qulity of the food at this restaurant keeps on getting worse. I think it has todo with greed! After being there several time for their buffet, I noticed (and those who accompanied me) this horrible bloating and feeling of "fullness" after eating only one plate (half full). Last time I went there, I almost landed in the ER after having a terrible bloating and difficulty breathing for sometime 9I'm a healthy young pesrson). Decided never to

go back there again! And I recommend that you do the same if you do not want to poison your body with whatever they put in the food.

Perfect after the Cinema

Lovely atmosphere - beautiful water fall, music, nice outdoor seating. Samosas and pakoras great. Curries and biryanis delicious! Able to eat without garlic! Across the street from the Landmark Art Cinema.

Hot but Tasty

I was a tourist and stumbled into this locally famous place on accident and I'm glad I did. The food is spicy hot but tasty. The various curries cover a wide range of tastes and we were disappointed we had to leave San Diego before we could go again. The plastic lizards and turtles that hung out on the fake waterfall were a disturbing choice of decor, however.
