our family are huge curry fans and have tried a few of the restaurants on island. We like Bollywood because it has a great selection but also I love that the kids meal comes with curry options too. if your child isn't a huge curry fan I would suggest the mango curry because its quite sweet!

Bollywood Dreams is like the "Hard Rock" of curry places. Small place with maybe a dozen tables and a VIP section. Bollywood movie paraphernalia on the walls and music videos playing on the TV. Now to the food. The different curries were absolute delicious. Each one having its own flavor, not blending together like some places I've been. The chicken... More

OMG, have the butter chicken curry, it is absolutely the best. The pineapple curry and the seafood is delicious also. The service is excellent. I love the atmosphere and the owners son is a doll. He was so sweet and talked to us about the currys and other indian foods. I went three times while in Japan and I miss... More

This was our first curry place we went when we got to Okinawa. Not a bad place the curry selection is awesome and the food is delicious. The only thing that gets me is the price, it's expensive so that is why we don't go there much. There are other places where we can eat the same quality of food... More

I'm not an Indian food snob, but this wasn't remotely close to the real thing. I got the "veggie simple" where you choose your dish and it supposedly came with naan, pakora, and samoa, but it was more like the naan came with all of the above. I got palak paneer (a tiny dish of it) a huge chunk of... More

This is my absolute favorite place to get curry in Oki. The naan bread is gigantic and delicious. The butter chicken melts in your mouth. We visit at least once a month.

We ended up going to Bollywood dreams twice at the request of my son who described the butter chicken as the best he'ed ever eaten. Tucked away on the top floor of the American Village, the 20 minute wait for a table immediately suggested something good! Both our lunch and evening visits were equally as good but the highlight had... More

Eating out in Okinawa turned out to be cheap yet delicious and varied experiences and Bollywood Dreams certainly was one of the highlights of our stay. You knew it would be good by the wait time and the fact it was packed both lunchtime and evenings. The 20 minute wait was worth it, food arrived quickly and there was plenty... More

If you like naan then this place is for you. Huge naan; elephant ear sized (think African elephant not Indian elephant). My only gripe is they usually play the equivalent to Indian MTV music videos on the television; a lot of skin and hip shaking.
