Restaurant Description

Bombay, The Gateway to India. Then. As now. During the days of the British Raj, it was the first port of call for steamships touching India. It reigned over the Bombay Province with the same verve and vigor which endures today.The Bombay Province included Sind (now in Pakistan), Gujarat, Hyderabad-Deccan, the district of Karnataka and the towns bordering Goa. It was an age of elegance, of sunlit days and starry nights, imbued with the ceremony of empire and a graciousness characteristic of the time. It was an age of grand dinners known as Burra Khanas, of Shikars and cold weather tours and Khansamas, or expert cooks, who produced an astonishing variety of English food and traditional Indian dishes in Dak bungalows.

 Food is good and well cooked. The Service is nice.
We had been there and had order some subzi which turned out to be spicy when we had asked for it to be as low spicy as possible. The manager came down and appologized when we brought it to there notice and offered to have it replaced.. Since we were almost done.. he didnt charge us for it... Its a nice place to eat
A diner from Leander, Texas gave an overall rating of 4  out of 5 stars on May 19, 2009 @ 9:44 AM

 Great food, great service, great price! What's not to love? We eat here as often as we can without getting burned out. It reminds us of the great Indian food we had in California, prepared by our neighbors.
