Bombay Garden takes a page from the culinary extravaganzas of the 'Grand Moguls' and brings the past to life, in the ambience and hospitality representative of those golden times, when every meal was a feast and every feast a gourmet delight. On the culinary level, it was the East which Moreconquered the West, bringing along both South and North to raise Curry to Universal Popularity. It is a false notion that all Indian food is just "hot". All spices and herbs are used, not just for flavor and aroma, but for their digestive and nutritional values. Chilies are rich in Vitamin C, Methi revitalizes the liver. Ginger and Peppercorns aid digestion. Mint is refreshing while Coriander is good for the kidneys. Good wholesome food and good health are closely linked.

  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Dec 16, 2014 · by Tiffany C. from YelpFor $11.95 lunch buffet, the price is not bad and will fill you up but the selection of different food is small. This place had probably the smallest selection of food choices for a lunch buffet that I have ever been too. Food wise was also only ok. The only dish I really like was the spicy fish fillet.
