Diners who want to experience exceptional Indian cuisine take a short trip to Bombay Brasserie. Now, in addition to our existing West University location, we are pleased to announce the opening of our Galleria location, just off of 610 and Westheimer.
Serving Northern Indian cuisine...this new, "pleasant surprise" in the Galleria area offers "solid food" that can be "wonderful"; patrons particularly laud the "great lunch buffet" (spoon up some of the terrific saag paneer) and the "courteous treatment" from a "knowledgeable staff." --Zagat Survey
"If you like Indian food, you will love Bombay Brasserie. If you think you don't like Indian food or haven't really tried it, this is your place."-Houston Chronicle
"Best Indian Restaurant" and ?Best Buffet?-Houston Press 2000

personally, i think this place is LEGIT. Especially if your going for lunch. all you can eat for 15 bucks? uh... YES. well, im a guy and i like to eat. I also love spicy things. therefore i definitely love indian food. you should probably at least come once. once its all you will need to be hooked on this place
great food – Discovered this place by accident. I was actually trying to meet a friend in the area and got lost so he ended up meeting me where I was, which happened to be next to Bombay. I've tried indian food a few times and was never "wowed" by the experience but figured since we were already in the parking lot i figured, heck why not give it a try?
So glad that we did! My buddy and I had some of the best food we've ever had at Narin's. It's a nice restaurant but not overpriced! Highly recommend it!
TERRIBLE, RIP-OFF, HALF FOOD, CHEATED GROUP INTO $410 BILL – ABSOLUTE RIP-OFF, OWNER IS TERRIBLE, CHEATED GROUP INTO $410 BILL, AND ONLY GAVE US HALF OF OUR FOOD!!!!!
First, we're all Indian and KNOW the value of our food, what our food was worth for 12 people was altogether no more than $150 TOTAL (INCLUDING TIP).
The owner tried to up-sell us on EVERYTHING, was extremely pushy and we ended up ordering for the entire table 2 of the "BOMBAY FEASTS" and 2 of the "TANDOORI FEASTS" that were each $49, yes, that's right $49. So for $200, you expect it to feed 12 people right? WRONG! THIS GUY IS A CON ARTIST!!!!!
THE OWNER TRIED TO COMBINE PLATES TO GIVE US LESS FOOD, WE SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED 4 DISHES OF EACH, INSTEAD WE RECEIVED ONE OR TWO PLATES EACH AND WERE TOLD HE "COMBINED THEM INTO ONE PLATE"
WE RECEIVED OUR TWO ORDERS OF THE "TANDOORI FEAST" (REMEMBER THIS COST $49 EACH, SO IT'S A $100). WHAT DO WE GET? ONE PLATE, YES, ONE PLATE OF TANDOORI CHICKEN WITH ABOUT 8 PIECES OF MEAT ON IT. THAT'S A $100 PLATE OF TANDOORI CHICKEN THAT ANYWHERE ELSE WOULD HAVE COST $15 AT THE MOST!!!!!!!
WE PAID $100 FOR A PLATE OF TERRIBLE TANDOORI CHICKEN!
(THAT IS TWO TANDOORI FEASTS FOR $49 COMBINED AND PUT ON ONE PLATE, INSULTING TO SAY THE LEAST)
WE ALSO DID NOT RECEIVE TWO ORDERS OF PRAWN CURRY, TWO ORDERS OF SAAG, OR THE TWO EXTRA ORDERS OF CHICKEN TIKKA. INSTEAD HE POINTED TO A SINGLE PORTION OF CURRY AND SAID.... "I COMBINED THE TWO ORDERS INTO ONE." OUTRAGEOUS. WHEN WE ASKED A WAITER, HE SAID "NO, THAT IS ONLY ONE ORDER." WE CONFRONTED THE OWNER AND HE JUST LIED.
EVERYONE AT THE TABLE WAS OUTRAGED AND BECAUSE OF THE OWNER'S DISHONEST AND TASTELESS MOVE OF "COMBINING" OF DISHES AND GIVING US HALF IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE US ORDER MORE FOOD. FRUSTRATED, AFTER HE REFUSED TO BRING US WHAT WE ORDERED, WE HAD TO ORDER MORE DISHES TO GO AROUND. IT WAS ANGERING TO SAY THE LEAST AND WE ALL CONSIDERED WALKING OUT.
IN THE END, THE BILL ENDED UP BEING NOT $200, BUT $400 AND THE OWNER DID NOT APOLOGIZE ONCE FOR CHARGING US AND COMBINING PLATES AND BRINGING US HALF THE FOOD. HE'S AN ABSOLUTE JERK.
HE ALSO WENT AHEAD AND ADDED A $50 FLAT TIP TO THE BILL FOR HIMSELF, ABSOLUTE DISBELIEF. THIS GUY SHOULD FRY IN HELL.
BY THE WAY, THE FOOD ALSO SUCKED. WE ALL KNOW GOOD INDIAN FOOD, AND A DECENT PRICE. THIS PLACE WILL GIVE YOU NEITHER AND THE OWNER IS A TOP NOTCH A**HOLE.
SERVICE SUCKS! – This was our first time going to this one because we usually go to the rice village location. The food was better than average but the naan was burnt (which I guess isnt that big of a deal) but the service was HORRIBLE! They are very unfriendly and we even had multiple waiters coming and going to our table and each and everyone one of them were not nice. We also noticed preferential treatment was given to certain people and you can tell some people were definately treated better...which I guess wouldn't have bothered me if it was a cheap restaurant. But I got cheap service from the "high quality" restaurant.
We also ordered drinks from the bar and they tasted like they didn't even put any alcohol or were trying to be cheap about it. Either way, I don't recommend ordering from the bar unless you're ordering beer or wine. It's a waste.
Worth the drive – I took a couple of guests visiting Houston from London. My London guests were accostomed to high quality Indian food and they were not dissapointed by Narins.
Reasonably priced wines and dinner menu, good service and good food.
We had dinner at 6 pm on a Wednesday and the Restaurant was near empty. No need for reservations and the food was good. Great appetizers and curry sauces.
Delicious Indian Cuisine, lovely atmosphere – This restaurant is nicely decorated, with a really pleasant atmosphere. The staff is extremely courteous and attentive. The food is excellent and would be a great place to take a first-timer to try all the dishes. Although all of the dishes were a bit "Americanized"...not spicy whatsoever. I will definitely come back! Wonderful lunch buffet!
Galleria-area location of this North Indian favorite keeps the affordable lunch buffet, but adds a touch of special occasion class. – In Short
Expect a more upscale, date-friendly atmosphere than at other local Indian buffets. The second location of this family-owned restaurant promises diners a relaxed atmosphere and a menu that brings a few gourmet additions to the classic menu of North Indian dishes like saag paneer with fresh-baked naan, tandoori chicken, lamb curry and varied veggie dishes. The expansive all-you-can-eat lunch buffet offers more than three times the possibilities while the dinner menu spices up the offerings with creative continental-style additions.
