  • YUMM! Delicious food! We enjoyed everything. LOVED the fresh veggies! Our family tried a little of everything. Appetizers, soup, salads, entrees, naan and the yummy home made Chai ice cream was indulgent! We look forward to a return visit soon! We appreciate the kind and considerate service.

  • I still can't say enough about Cafe Bombay.


  • The owners are friendly and always improving.  I really love everything I have had here.

    The chicken Tikka masala is wonderful.  Spicy yet nuanced flavors.

    The lamb kadai is great. You don't see traditional kadai on many menus so I highly recommend trying it.

    They can spice it however you want.  I'm OK with spice and 7 is hot for me.  My wife doesn't like any spice and she enjoys their level 0.  Seriously, she can't stand too much black pepper and she's OK with their level zero.

    They also make fresh Chai lattes with authentic spices and they're amazing.

    You MUST TASTE these flavors! Authentic Indian food.

    We LOVE getting food from Cafe Bombay and are only disappointed that they aren't open more often! Gigi is an incredible chef. The flavors are unlike anything else nearby. Creamy sauces, incredible naan, fresh ingredients, and all done with the perfect balance of sweet, earthy, and spicy. I love that you can control how spicy the food is by ordering based on spice levels of 1-10. We typically order take-out, although the dining room is a quiet enjoyable atmosphere with Indian decor and moody charm. One order of food is usually plenty for dinner and lunch the next day! Makes great leftovers. 
    I recommend the Chicken Xacutti and Bombay Naan!

    Always A Great Meal

    Once again we have had a wonderful meal at Cafe Bombay. We had fish malabar, fish curry, and vegetable biryrani. Their special Bombay Nan and Garlic Nan are delicious. For dessert we shared the homemade spicy chocolate ice cream on a delicious homemade cookie! It was amazing!! Just a hit of spice.

    Yes! Yes! YES! The best Indian Cuisine we've enjoyed TO DATE!!! Immediate Seating, elegant décor, lightly ambient music, attentive & engaged personal service. We had the Curry Shrimp & Crab Goa. Spicy level #5. Amazing flavor and the compliment of strawberry cucumber side salad was the perfect balance. We will be back soon, for another taste adventure! Highly Recommend.

My first taste at Indian cuisine was overwhelming delicious at Cafe Bombay! Loved their garlic naan bread and my entree was the Kerala chicken korma. I will be back!

  • Tonight was my first visit, it was purely  by accident, I was strolling and shopping, and there it was....decor has a very upscale look..
    My Vegetable Curry was outstanding, on a scale of 1-10, I requested a 7 for spiciness, and it was perfect.  It was served with a small salad on the plate, which was a very nice touch. I had Mango ice cream for dessert,  it is made on the premise and was very flavorful...I will definatelly return and this time it will be on purpose

My husband and I love Cafe Bombay, we have dined in twice but mainly get takeout. The Rogan Josh & Chicken Tiki Masala, Samoas, and garlic Naan are our favorites. We don't mind the different hours that this restaurant maintains, as we understand it is a family business. Keep up the great work!

  • I love Cafe Bombay! Even though they are only open Thur-Sat for a few hours, it is worth it.  I typically order take-out.  The food is made to order to spice-level and it is so yummy.  The samosa are great with the homemade chutney and I always get the kerala chicken korma gradually upping the spice level.  If you don't mind the weird hours, try it out, It's worth it.

Cafe Bombay is the Bomb!

Forget all those Americanized Indian restaurants in Bucks County. This one is the real deal. We just returned from Kerala so speak with some authority. Seasoning is freshly sourced and you immediately taste the difference. No congealed, thick milky sauces here. Each dish is uniquely seasoned to fit the food. For example the Tilapia has a perfect crust of spice and flavor but meaty and tender inside. The lamb Kerala style has tender bite sized pieces of lamb in a tangy, tomato onion based sauce. The owner and his wife are friendly and helpful in terms of setting the right hotness level for you. We are definitely going back and encourage anyone who reads this review to try Cafe Bombay.

    This gem of an eatery was a delightful find.  I went for dinner on New Year's Eve as a bit of a last minute plan.  We took a bottle of wine with us (Sauvignon Blanc) to complement our meals.  The owner was completely attentive, checking in with us throughout the meal and very willing to answer our questions.
    I started with the Bombay Naan (Naan stuff with mixed dry nuts, raisins, and coconut) as an appetizer.  It was steaming hot and deliciously sweet.  I think a meal could be made of just the naan!  My entree was Shrimp Kadai, done with a spice level of 7 on a scale of 1-10.  It was delicious and the serving size was ample.  The next time I will likely go for a spice level of 8 for a little more heat.  The portions were generous to the point where dessert was not a consideration - and I love an indulgent treat.
    I will definitely revisit the small, quaint eatery.  The menu offers plenty of choices at reasonable prices, including many vegetarian options.  The decor is lovely, contributing to a lovely dining experience.  Overall, I cannot offer a single negative and encourage others to patronize this local business.

    We recently tried this place and it was AMAZING! We had a table of four and every single one of us tried something different and none were disappointed. The sauces were complexed and meats/fish cooked perfectly. They really care about their food here and making sure you're happy. The owner and his family are charming and welcoming. He'll make great suggestions if you're not sure what you want or if you're not familiar with Indian cuisine.  The home made Chai ice cream is to die for. I wish they sold it in stores!

  • My husband and I, his son and girlfriend ate here last night. The service was superb from the greeting through the meal until the end. The food was delicious. We had assorted apps and all four had different entrees. You can choose the amount of heat as you order from 1 to 10. 
    This was the first time my husband and I ate Indian cuisine. His son and girlfriend had eaten Indian before, and they said it was one of the best they had. We will all go back. 
    If you go don't miss the chai ice cream.

  • My boyfriend and I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for awhile and we regret not doing it sooner. The restaurant itself was charming along with the ambient music. Our food was savory and it was awesome to customize your spice level. The owner was talking to us and he was so welcoming. The overall experience was fantastic!! Definitely will be returning! Don't forget your bottle of wine!

    GG was great as our server. All the food we had was fantastic. Salads, appietizers (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian), and all the breads were delicious. I had the lamb curry but our party tried lots of other dishes and everyone was satisfied. Don’t forget to try the ice cream for dessert!!

Incredible dining experience. Had heard many great things about Cafe Bombay but this was the first time we have tried it and were not disappointed. A great meal followed by a tremendous desert. Owner was very helpful guiding us thru the menu. Well worth the drive.

this place doesn't look like much, but the food is absolutely fantastic. the service isn't always great; small family owned place so sometimes one server is waiting on multiple tables, which increases wait time... but the genuine pleasant demeanor of everyone there helps to make up for it. you're going to be eating and drinking really well so you might not notice it.
