I finally tried this restaurant for dinner and it was great, great food ,the best service I've ever had in any restaurant (and Ive eaten at many of the best in town) and a nice atmosphere.By far the best Indian restaurant I have tried in NYC

NYC has many Indian Restaurants, but having a restaurant that is classy and yet reasonable priced for the exclusive service remains Bombay Palace! Waiters were so attentive and patient with each of us, the food was succulent, the overall ambient had a traditional feeling yet with a modern touch. The variety of food is so good, veg and non veg. I highly recommend this place.

Bombay Palace was as good experience for us. We felt welcome and were happy to be seated in a cozy booth. The food was delicious... the chicken tikka is especially to die for. We asked for "mild" but next time we're going for medium. I love naan and their naan was deelicious. Definitely coming back. Also, try the mango lassi... it's a classic and is always good for taming the spiciest of foods (so I have learned through my Indian food trials.)

We have been eting at the buffet for many years now, but since the place was sold in 2010, the new owners have taken a gem, and adopted an Airport food quality standard. The Tikka Masalla tastes days old, the chicken stringy and cheap. The Tandoori was hard, and ineddible. The selections have consolidated to a few dishes, mostly rice and vegetarian concoctions. The salads are wilted, and the standard is no more! I really wish that they would bring back the old chef, he was great!

We've been coming here regularly for nearly 30 years and adore the place - it's a grand, comfy room with booths and a high ceiling, so there's a sense of occasion, and a great big fish tank, and the most delicious all-you-can eat lunch buffet, 7 days a week, in NY. Great place to take friends and make them feel special. Also great for people who want to try Indian food for the first time - why not start with the best? Hope the new management doesn't mess with the traditional food too much - recent eggrolls, albeit delicious, were not needed and a scary omen. Unlike most NY Indian restaurants, Bombay Palace has the knack of the fifth flavor, UMAMI, a sort of smooth, delightful, carressing professional depth and finish to the taste of every dish. (We bought 4 Bombay Palace cookbooks over the years - afraid of losing them - the food's that special.) Alongside the meat dishes and tandooris, great classic vegetarian dishes are here - Alu Gobi, Mattar Paneer, Veg Kofta, and good, deep, buttery dark dhals. All you can eat tender, warm gulab jamuns. Hope the new crew don't go all fusion on us - if it ain't broke, don't fix the menu! The old staff mostly seems to be gone, a great shame - the old waiters were lovely and welcoming, and the Sikhs who greeted and seated you knew their stuff. The new waitstaff are pretty shambolic and seem to be afraid of management. Hopefully with time it will work out. They've got a great thing going here, hope they don't mess it up!

Actually, I quite like this place, yes the waiters could do with some customer service lessons, but sometimes I am not surprised they are the way they are with some peoples behavior! (some customers could do with attitude adjustments). Food is great, portions are perfect, anything larger is just pigery! Indian food is suppose to be full a flavor and spice, don't eat there if you don't like spicy food!!
