Bombay Club Review

One block from the White House, the beautiful Bombay Club tries to re-create the refined aura of British private clubs in colonial India. Potted palms and a bright blue ceiling above white plaster moldings adorn the dining room. On the menu are unusual seafood specialties and a large number of vegetarian dishes, but the real standouts are the aromatic curries. The bar, furnished with rattan chairs and dark-wood paneling, serves hot hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour. The attire tends toward upscale business-casual.

    Bland Food and Bad Service

    * Food is terrible. For any one who knows the taste of indian food, please beware this restaurant. Food is bland and tasteless. Poor variety in Buffet. * Service is bad . The maitre d&#146 is rude and only smiles to those with a suit and appear to have a fat wallet. Indians please beware. This place will look down on you. Stay away. Also remember this place reminds you of the discriminatory rude attitude of the east india company imperialism. I had a terrible experience at this place. The maitre d' seated us. We went to the buffet to pick up food and when we returned he moved our things and told us rudely that the place he asked us to sit is reserved for an old couple who visited them for 18 years. No please, No sorry and No thankyou. The old couple in "Suits" stands around and asks us .."So is our table ready or not?" After three rounds to complaining to the other staff the maitre d&#146 walks out to apologize in what I would say a truly unapologetic manner. So desis..remember this place does not like you, unless you are related to the white house.

    Overreaction

    'ivirs' is far too critical...This is not a chicago steakhouse. Food is above average, service varies--but never rude as 'ivirs' claims--at least, not in my experience. We've never met a rude waiter....Perhaps it's just the maitres d's. Occasional Bill Clinton sightings, when he's in town.
