I always get a quality meal here. No matter what I order from lamb korma to chicken tikka masala to onion pakoras to naan to the magi lassi are all incredible. You can choose your spice level, I like a medium plus spice and it's perfect for me. Good portions for the price. If you are in the area and... More

Like another TripAdvisor reviewer, we were staying at The Garland hotel and found the restaurant while on a walk one morning. Went back for dinner that evening and were very happy. We have a couple of favorite Indian restaurants in Washington DC and Bollywood Cafe is as good or better. Really cute place; super attentive staff.

I visited the Bollywood Café with my wife. We went there at lunch time in a week day and the place was almost empty, just one table occupied. We live two blocks from there and always wondered if it was actually good, since the outside look is not really attractive. What a surprise when we walked in! The place is... More

We visited this lovely restaurant when staying at the Beverley Garland Hotel. It is only a 10 minute walk and well worth it. Small, intimate with the friendliest staff and great food. We have lots of Indian restaurants in the UK but this could rival any of them. We had the mixed starter, chicken tikka masala, chicken bhuna with the... More

I was staying at the Garland Hotel for a conference. It's only a short, 5 minute walk up Vineland to Ventura Blvd where Bollywood Cafe is located. They open for lunch at 11AM. Dinner opening is later. The staff are very friendly; largely young, personable staff who obviously have a following of local, take out patrons. I ordered a favorite:... More
