Restaurant Review: Bombay Grill House

Details: Located at 764 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is

I think the first thing anyone should know about this place is that the owner may be a horrible human being. If you go on the restaurant’s claimed Yelp page, you’ll find the owner shouting down and berating bad reviews of the restaurant. On that point alone, I probably should’ve avoided this restaurant. However, I was too curious to resists and came by to see the restaurant behind the Yelp craziness.

I came by for the lunch special, which was a little over ten dollars. I got the tikka masala which came with rice, naan, and some kind of mashed lentil or split pea goop. It was ok. The goop was pretty bad. The tikka masala was a little below average as it was a little watered down. The naan also was slightly sub standard.

I met the owner that I saw in the Yelp photos and he seemed fine.

Overall, there are better Indian restaurants in a two block radius of this restaurant and their food costs about the same. If you need Indian food, you should probably look somewhere else.

Score: 6/10
