If you like Indian food, you’ll like the food. (I would’ve given 4 stars just on the food alone.) The Kemal Samosa appetizers were excellent. The Lamb Rogan Josh and Goat Masala were very good. But...the service is very, very slow. I’m not talking about...More

Never get tired of comiing . The owner treats you like an old friend, and the food is top notch. If the menu is too complext for you, just ask for help, and they'll guide you in the right direction.

Have had several good dinners at Bollywood. We love the garlic naan bread. We would order a variety of dishes and share to enjoy many different meals. Always leave full.
