Bombay Sweet & Restaurant serves a variety of Indian foods and sweets.
A friend and I were having a quick lunch and we decided to check out the buffet action since my buddy had eaten at this place when he worked in MR. The restaurant looked okay inside and it was quite clean. The friendly manager seated us and described the delights on the buffet table then he left us to it, except for water top-ups. We had the usual favourites, and accompanied them with some fresh naan bread. I was there mostly for the butter chicken though. It was okay, although it did not make me long to dip my feet in the Ganges or anything. I was told it used to be better. As for price, it was quite cheap, and that was a bonus. I am not sure if I will be back, but I don’t know of any other Indian buffets in the area.
I've been here a few times for take-out and for the buffet once. I appreciate the good selection of delicious vegetarian options, as I ususally do with Indian food in general. Their samosas are excellent, with a price point that I appreciate and that is in-line with other places. I brought a big bag of them to a party recently that was met with great enthusiasm!
What sticks out to me here is the very nice and appreciative staff. I enjoy the comfortable and eager small talk whenever I go in, whether the topic is world travel, vegetarianism, or the Canucks!
I'm a fairly regular lunch patron (buffet) and always leave happy. Price is very reasonable (<$10) and food is always good. Very nice service staff. Well worth a visit. Try the mattar paneer. Have never ordered off the menu or been here for dinner.
Under new management in the location of a former Indian restaurant, the quality and variety of the lunch-time buffet is outstanding. Food is hot and fresh and very tasty. The a la carte menu is equally pleasing. Has stolen my business from the neighbouring GM. Service is prompt but invisible. Vegetable and goat dishes are exceptionally well done.
I'm a regular at the lunch buffet here and always leave pleasantly full. I find the 'you need drink?' (irregardless of the server) question comforting.
Decor is plain but clean, it's not why I go there. Buffet always tasty, butter chicken is fantastic. Only small complaints are leaving bay leaves in the rice, and it sometimes takes a while to refill the samosas (while they have a bunch out front under a heat lamp for grab and go). Small salad bar that I can't comment on as I never partake.
Service is always good and friendly. A little slow offering the basket of Naan ... sometimes I'm on my second plate before I get it, but it's warm, fresh and fantastic. They used to have it on the buffet, I prefer it that way myself.
Great value, I'll keep going back.
I've eatten at a lot of different Indian food restaurants...this one is ok. I prefer to go for buffet and since this is the only Indian buffet in Maple Ridge, then this place it is. I find some of the food is on the runny side....to liquidy but the naan does a good job of soaking it up! There are definetly other places I prefer in terms of taste, but its not too bad. Would reccomend for buffet, otherwise, there are other places I would probably reccomend for Al a carte
My wife and I get take out every week from here. It's great. Very friendly, conscientious service, and for us the speed is important. They can often have a full meal ready for pick up in 15 mins! We used to go to GM and still love their food, but simply don't have time for the waits there. We have traveled to India and find both places quite authentic. We love the Lamb butter Masala, Chicken Curry Alu Parantha and Raitha. My only criticism of some of the menu items is the excess salt from time to time in things like the stuffed breads. You should know that their spicy levels are not tyical: mild, medium, hot, indian hot, and finally DOUBLE indian hot. Levels fluctuate a fair bit night to night. we've tried them all. In the sweeter dishes like Butter chicken or any of the butter masalas I suggest going hotter to balance the sweetness.
This is a review of their lunch buffet. I would definitly go back. Wow, their naan bread is fresh, not too oily and made to order even at the buffet. They have a nice selection of fresh veggies (broccoli, lettuce, cucumber, etc.) to complement the wide selection of curries and heavier dishes. Clean restaurant, dishes cleared promptly, quality food, many many dishes to choose from. This is much better than any Indian buffets I've tried including Mehfil in surrey, All India on Davie or New India on Broadway. It might be a bit more out of the way location-wise but I would make the drive out here if I were in the mood for indian food.
Worst customer experience I've had in a long time. Took over 3 phone calls to reach the restaurant, followed by a questionable 'hello?'. Did I call the right number?!?
And what Indian Cuisine doesn't have Samosas?!? And other popular Indian dishes.
I will not be giving my business to this restaurant again.
I always go there to get Somosa for the Christmas parties, etc. Everyone loves them and asks me where I get them from. We love them as well; our kids who aren't fans of spicy food always reach for the somosas...along with a glass of milk. They love them and often ask if they can take it to school for their lunch along with a carton of milk. I've been going there for 3 years now to buy somosas every time. It's not too spicy but mildly spicy. I never tried their buffet, etc so can't speak about those. It's a bit dated inside but the service and somosas are outstanding in my book.
Have got take out twice. Food is excellent - owner very friendly. Even gave me a yummy Samosa to munch on while I was hungrily waiting. I would definately recommend eating here. I would like to fine in if ever have the time. Don't know what order try the paneer vindaloo.
We had eaten here in the past and it was okay, but we stopped by to grab a samosa to go and realized the lunch buffet was on, so we decided to try it -and we were blown away. We've had a lot of Indian food and we were very pleasantly surprised by this experience. Buffets are not easy to do well, we were very happy with the selection, the quality and the service. It's typical Indian decor, simple, but nice, bright and clean. I saw a review where someone complained about spots on the glasses, and to be honest I wasn't looking for thing like that, it's not a high end restaurant, it's just good home-cooked Indian food, and hey at least spots mean the glasses have been well washed, just not covered in strong chemicals or breathed on and polished with a cloth! Don't go expecting Vijay's (in Vancouver) but for a basic lunch buffet this is awesome.
My wife took me out for my Birthday here. The first thing I noticed was the glasses had spots on them.The service was Great.I had Chicken Tiki and asked for butter sauce to go with it. Would not do it for us. My wife asked for her food to be med in hotness.It was smoking hot, I tried it and it was hot. I asked for masala fries but could not do it. Instead I get fries that looked awfall to look at. Sorry but would not recommend this place to anyone.
New owners and great food!!! The lunch buffet was well worth the money, with a great selection of tasty dishes. My favorite is the butter chicken, but all was very delicious. Bring your kids as well to try new flavors of food. Some items were not very spicy so great for them and they only charge half price for kids...worth a try. Prices for a la carte seem reasonable as well, though have not tried from that menu yet, but well one day.
