HORRIBLE AND VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF – BE CAREFUL.. VERY EXPENSIVE AND BAD FOOD... THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF...Go only if you have lot of money.. Very very expensive... there portions are very small and if you are hungry you will end up spending atleast a minimum of 50$ per person... Felt very bad when i saw the portion.. they will rip you off. Food is not at all upto the standard..
Romantic, Delicious, and Friendly – This restaurant is far off the strip, on the west side of Las Vegas, but easy to find if you drive to the Sahara Casino and then head west on Sahara Avenue.
The food is very good. The flavors are light and spices burst forth as you eat individual dishes. We are vegetarian so only sampled some of the vegetarian appetizers and main dishes.
The Mango Lasi (a yogurt and mango drink) was, of course, yummy and delicious. The Samosas, I felt, were a little too crispy and could have used more spice in the potato, but my son liked them better than some very good ones we had a couple of nights before. The sauces were light and good for this snack. Another appetizer (forgot the name) was so fantastic I could have eaten it all night. It was made with zucchini in a lentil batter. Wow!! just super!!! We also tried a traditional lentil soup which really hit the spot.
For dinner, we had the Malai Kafta Curry (a pink vegetable ball in a creamy curry sauce). It was great!! ... as was the Aloo Saag (spinach and potatoes in a milk sauce). The Vegetable Masala was also very good. Flavors of clove and other spices emerged as you ate. This dish would have been better with a meat entree rather than accompanying the vegetarian dishes I ordered, I think.
This place was great! There were only two of us (myself and my young son) and I recommend going there with at least four people as I left with over half of the food I ordered because they served good portions of the tasty delights. I read in some other review that the portions were small and too expensive. I have eaten at comparable Indian restaurants, as well as some up the scale, and down the scale and Bollywood is comparable in price and portion to the restaurants in it's class. The portions are served in traditional copper (lined with a silver metal) bowls which are deeper than they appear. The dishes are set on stands above tea light candles which makes the already romantic setting even more-so. You can end up spending quite a bit of money because you don't really want to order one dish in this type of restaurant, so do go with friends, family, or a lover who loves good left-overs the next day!!
The ambience is cozy and sensuous, and the Indian "Bollywood" music videos playing during dinner added some excitement to the night as well. Our waiter was excellent and we felt very welcome, yet not overwhelmed so as to infringe on our experience. We finished the night with a small handful of sugar, dried coconut , and caraway seeds to freshen the breath.
This was a great experience and worth the cost. I'll have to talk someone in the hotel into warming the leftover food up for me tomorrow!!!
Luv ya!! I'm out :)
HORRIBLE SERVICE – We were staying in Vegas and called in advance to see if they were still going to be open when we arrived. Our $20 cab ride over was horrible enough, but when we got there, the sign said OPEN and we walked inside before their closing time. The owner told us he had sent everyone home and there was no way to accomodate us. They decided to close early regardless of the fact that they told us to still come in. Horrible treatment, leaving us still hungry and having to pay another $20 to return to our hotel. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! The owner had no compassion or willingness to rectify the situation, and basically shut the door on us.
Will never dine there again! – Although, we usually dine at next door Chinese buffet. We decided to try this Indian restaurant for a change and regretting it for several reasons. Expensive, extra charge for rice or bread and the worst of all its very small portion. I thought the lamb masala entree I ordered was a dip for the bread which comes in a little bowl.
Deceptive Pricing – The ONLY reason I will not dine here again is the a la carte prices on the rice. It is expected that rice will be included with the meal. Management gives the impression of a lower priced entree by pricing the rice separately (and you don't find this out until 1) your meal arrives or 2) you are asked if you would like rice with the meal). This is deceptive to the diner and a way to inflate the check. They may have gained an initial visit from me, but have lost a loyal repeat customer.
Very Overpriced – The interior was dark and the decor did not compare to nice Indian restaurants we have eaten in before. The portions were not generous. The food was fairly tasty, but extremely overpriced with extra charges for dishes like rice, and other side dishes. These are usually included with the meal.
We were so happy that an Indian restaurant opened at that location. We go there often usually to eat at the Chinese buffet next door, but we were very disappointed when we tried it. We also felt the owner was not pleasant or friendly.
We felt ripped off when we got the bill. This is NOT an upscale restaurant! It should not be so expensive. Although we do not wish anything negative on the openers, we're frankly surprised it has stayed open this long. We do not recommend it to anyone.
Will never go again – I will never return to this restaurant again. The food was good but the customer service was the worse. The prices were high. When the waitress took our order she asked if we wanted rice or the bread with our meal. We decided on 2 rice and 2 bread. When we got the bill there was all these charges of $3.99 etc. We asked what they were for and were told they were for the rice and bread. We told them that we were not told that it didn't come with the meal. We asked for the manager. He said that all indian restaurants charge for rice etc. and what could he do to help us. We told him to take off the charges and he refused. He was very rude and treated us like we were stupid. We told him that his restaurant would not be around for long for his poor customer service and high prices. The portions were so small. The dishes were maybe a cup of food at the most for each entree. The average price was about $15.
Best Restaurant Within Miles – With a restaurant of this quality in our neighborhood (Southwest Las Vegas) on Sahara at Rainbow, why should I cook?. The buffet of Indian cuisine, with more than 20 delicious items, was a feast! We will return to Bollywood Grill again and again and again.
Not the Best – This is not a great Indian restaurant. The food is over priced and the main dishes don't even come with RICE!!! I ordered take out and didn't realize this untill I got home and called back to say that they forgot the rice. You have to pay extra for rice. The chicken korma did not have a lot of flavor, was very bland. The naan was good however. So I paid $14 for chicken and no rice. I will not be going back.
Best lamb korma in the US – We always wanted to go to Bollywood because we love Indian food and the building looks very cool. We finally went one night and the food was amazing! So we ordered our usual favorites: Lamb Korma, creamed spinach with tofu, cheese naan and rice. I have to say that the lamb korma curry was the best we have yet in the US! The lamb was cooked perfectly tender, and the curry mixture was heavenly! We loved the creamed spinach too, but the lamb definitely stood out for us. We can't wait to go back there and try their lunch special!!
