Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Bollywood Bites has very tasty dosas, they are superbly made. However, this is a very expensive place and, even when taking advantage of the 2 for 1 offer on Thursdays, a simple meal for two people of two dosas and a drink each will come...to almost KSH 1500. Great quality but over-priced!More

I did a takeaway of south Indian Dosas and North Indian Chaats, The south Indian (Palak Dosa and Mysore Dosa) were quite nice in taste but the accompaniment with it (The Sambhar) needs to be improved to get to the real authentic South Indian taste....Coming on to Pani Pari - Again the content of the puri was descent but the pani puri water was a disaster. it was no way close to the real tast that attracts millions in India to relish this dish. Dahi puri was the other dish we ordered and it was fine. Full marks for that. Dar Guide magazineMore

Amazing options from among the vegetables menu; this is only a vegetarian restaurant and their offerings are quite diverse; the dosas, the chats, hyderabdi biryani - all very tasty; a bit expensive but it has value for money

A friend recommended this place. The service was great and the food was amazing. I Had the Pav Bhaji and it was scrumptious. I would definitely come back for more food.

Excellent Variety, Delicious Food, Quick Service and Attentive staff. The place has got a Bollywood Movie poster wall and identifying each movie while waiting for the food was fun.

We have been for many veggie dinners to this place. No prior bookings necessary. Their South Indian dossas are absolutely delicious. Many times we pop in after watching a movie next door at Nyali Cinema. They normally have deals on Thursdays: Buy a dossa and...get a second one free. Its a friendly ambience with good food.More

The food and service is very good. We tried the pav Bhaji and the food was very tasty. However I have to say it is not age friendly.. it is on the first floor with lots of stairs and my poor dad was exhausted trying...to climb them to get to the restaurant. It is a shame that the restaurant owners did not bear the elderly in mind!!!More

A great Indian Vegetarian only restaurant serving snacks and main meals from North India and South India with Mumbai street food, pasta and chips and Indo chineese cusine are also popular. Tasty and adequately tickes the palette. Efficient and quick service - slightly an upper...version of the SHIV SAGARS in India.More
