The restaurant serves veg and non veg delicacies with warm spices and it's utterly delicious. We ordered one portion of paneer pasand which was sufficient for three adults and three Indian breads (nan) Even our breakfast was served in the same restaurant during our two days... More

well you will find Indian food all around Dubai however Marco Polo has its own unit to provide Indian food especially Bombay style which is on 1st level of the property. Yummy and delicious food with the ambience of Mumbai in Dubai.

My friend in Dubai, who is Indian, always takes me here. The food is AMAZING especially the tandoori dishes: prawns (yum), chicken (so tender) and cheese (delicious) Service is always quick and efficient and they have live Indian music. Definitely worth a trip!

Walking in I was quite nervous as looks wise the hotel where it is based and the Restaurant itself does not look amazing. However as soon as we sat down the service provided was faultless.

The food here is delicious, but our experience was spoiled by the staff who watched over us all the time and wouldn't let us top up our own glasses or put more food on our plates. They were very polite and I'm sure, in some cultures, this is quite normal, but we are used to serving ourselves once the food... More

Description
THE BOMBAY: This Indian restaurant is a treasure trove of the most authentic Indian cuisine. The décor is earthy and the classical Indian music played by the live band completes an exotic Indian experience. This restaurant was named “BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT” in Dubai by “Time Out Awards”. The Bombay was also invited to contribute Indian cuisine to the world’s largest buffet on the 19th of January 2007, a record attempted by Dubai Shopping Festival & Emirates Culinary Guild for the Guinness Book of World Records. We were also invited to create the world’s largest dessert buffet for Guinness Book of World Records and of course the offering was a wide array of mouth watering Indian desserts. The wine list features only a handful of wines available at an affordable price, each one complementary to Indian spices and cuisine.Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner from 12.30 pm until 3.00 pm and from 7.30 pm until 02.00am.
