I am compelled to review my last diner on 07/13/10 at Bombay, which was terrible. Several curry dishes were ordered for 100% indian customers from Delhi at the "indian spice" level. It was purely uneatable it was so hot, not spicy (=flavorful), just burn your mouth and melt your brain for no reason hot. My dish of chicken tandoori on the other hand, was tasteless, and with no exaggeration, so dry that in many instances I wondered whether I was eating the chicken (in very small amount) or the bones.
Service to top everything was very slow, and nothing was done to try to salvage our experience. The waitresses that day were not pleasant.
The only good were the room which is quite beautiful and the chapati which were also good.
Finally, everything was overpriced even if it had been eatable.

I am extremely picky when it comes to high class Indian food.
I am not bothered about the ambiance or service.
Just plain fresh food.

have been following the Monsoon Group Restaurants for over twenty years now.

I went to their first location when they opened Kool Korner cuisine in Hillcrest.

After that I followed the Monsoon Vegetarian restaurant, Bombay, Masala, the new Monsoon and I recently dined at your latest Mexican restaurant ..Casa De Madera.

I told all of my family and friends and they are all true loyal customers too.

Not only is the food excellent but your design and decor is incredibly beautiful.

Keep up the good work guys.

Will be in tonight and keep a booth for me.

We came to your Taste of Hillcrest event and just loved it...your Theatre is great in the back.
After that we came to try Monsoon and Masala and were blown away.
Please open in London as we have no classy restaurants like this.

OK... this is the worst food I have ever ever ever had!! My boyfriend and I both ordered chicken tandoori with nan for take out... It was 35 dollars and the worst meal I have EVER had. There was two small little bad pieces with some stick rice and some NASTY cold sauce. They should be embarrassed. I'm embarrassed for them. Save your money and go to Royal India in Gas lamp... its the same price and much better.

OK... this is the worst food I have ever ever ever had!! Honestly... I don't know what the people who reviewed this place positively were eating. My Girlfriend and I both ordered Tandoori Chicken with some Nans for take out... It was 35 dollars and the worst meal I have ever had. There were two little pieces of bad chicken with some sticky rice and some NASTY tasting cold sauce. They should be embarrassed. I'm embarrassed for them.

Ugly step sisters Bombay, Monsoon and Masala are waste of money. I tried Bombay for Lunch buffet and thefood was totally garbage. Did not like the rubbery nan bread and the bland food was totally tasteless,
Then I received coupon in a magazine and tried Monsoon in down town I think that is totally ignored restaurant they have high chairs so you can not tell if the restaurant has any customers or not and would make it dark like a hounted house. The food is same quality when I complained about my food the manager who had no idea what Indian food is , he just appologized and said they are making some changes and next time it will be better and said we should try their other restaurant Masala on fifth avenue. While talking to my friends I asked them about masala and my friends told me if I wanted to have good Indian food I should try Royal India in down town and others are just waste of money.
I am going to try Royal India soon and cant wait to get some good Indian food.

I am just amazed at what super value The Monsoon Restaurant Group offers.
I should not say this but for offering such high class restaurants in excellent locations, I would be willing to pay alot more but I do love the value for money I get.
The service needs polishing up but apart from that, I give ten out of ten.

Congratulations on your twenty years of success. Also Congratulations to Ashley for being Awarded Top Indian Executive Chef of San Diego.
I have been a loyal guest since you first opened Kool Korner Cuisine and expanded. I dine at all of your restaurants and could never dine at any of your lousy competitors places. They are cheap looking, dirty and ugly with terrible food. I hate the one with the yellow awning, it looks like bagel store awnings etc. They have no class.
You guys are definitely have the best Indian restaurants in San Diego. Nobody even comes close.

This restaurant is a gorgeous and stunning restaurant. I read the other negative reviews and they did not make sense at all. I think they have horrible competitors that are jealous of their success. These guys have a chain of the most beautiful restaurants. They must have put millions of dollars into them. Food and drinks are to die for.

I thought I had experienced the best Indian restaurants in London and New York but I was totally wrong. Bombay Exotic just blew my mind when I saw it. Further to my surprise was the top notch food they prepared. They were packed so service was just slightly off. Today I was really proud to be an Indian. See you guys soon.

Pros: massive restaurant so always a seat

Cons: habit forming

Ordered food here twice - both times I gave ample time outside of the "your food will be ready in 20 minutes" by turning up 30-35 minutes later. Food wasn't ready(perhaps I waited too long??!), needed to wait for 15 minutes double parked on the curb (street parking is scarce) whilst the maitre d seemed confused and searched for a free waiter to "find" the order... the first time wrong entrees were given (didn't care at this point since I was starving) the second time the wait was extended to a good 20 minutes... they served the lassi in a plastic bowl - that's just WEIRD since it's a drink!

great food, but perhaps not worth ordering as take-out... it's certainly not their forte

The Executive team of the Monsoon Restaurant Group is shocked, dismayed and appalled to learn that one of our struggling competitors has curved to the levels of aggressive lunacy and has been disguising as one of our ex-employees and posting negative reviews in an impetuous effort to hamper the status of our culinary institutions.

We do not intend to indulge in this unethical and fraudulent attitude of our business rivals but instead continue focusing on the raising the bar for the quality of Indian food, unparallel ambiance and gracious service in USA along with exceptional standards of hospitality to all our Guests who have been very loyal to The Monsoon Group of Restaurants for decades.
A big Thank you to all our guests who have made the Monsoon chain of Indian restaurants the best and the leading group in USA.

Went to this restaurant as suggestion of my wife and daughter last week. We just moved back to SD about 1.5 years ago and have been wanting to find a 'Go-To' place for indian food and we had driven by this establishment a number of times and thought we'd give it a shot.
First when u drive by you think wow. Then when u walk up and into the place, you still think wow. Great restaurant, great decor, friendly staff
Then we ordered our typical few chicken entrees, a few appetizers and some of the bread and rice sides. I am sorry to say we were very disappointed. I like my food with some salt and probably more than todays health conscious patrons, but every dish I had down to the rice was overly salted and I am sorry to say I will not be returning to this restuarant regardless of how beautiful or friendly they are. I also thought the food was overpriced for what I received.
Maybe its just my family that feels this way? I don't think so.

Bombay is one of my favorite Indian Restaurants in San Diego. They have great portions and its a great place to take the family. I would absolutely recommend getting HOT garlic Naan and Tamarind Chutney for an appetizer...its to die for!

It deserve negative star. I usually do not complain however it was the worse of the worse (at least they win that award). Horrible food. It ruined our anniversary dinner. Server did not come on our table for 15 minutes and then the drinks I ordered did not come for 15 minutes when there were only 2 more tables. There was no taste in the food and the bread was like card board. Simply STAY AWAY.

I recently wen to the lunch buffet at Bombay. The selection was decent, they had about 4-5 vegetable and meat dishes to choose from. The naan though was excellent. It was made to order and was definitely one of the better things they had in the buffet, along with the desserts. The food itself was mild in flavor (probably toned down for American Palates). The restaurant itself was BEAUTIFUL. The wait staff was very friendly and the price of the buffet was very reasonable. All in all a pretty good experience. My wife and I are new to the area, so we're hoping to find a place with more robust flavors. If you're craving Indian food though, this will quell that craving for sure.

My friend had been raving about Bombay for a week and we finally went this past Saturday. It was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in San Diego. The hostess didn't acknowledge for five minutes while we were standing in front of her. When we were finally seated the waiter came to our table 25 minutes later. He didn't apologize and just took our food order. After another 35 minutes our appetizers came and then another 45 minutes later the main course was delivered. By that point my friend and I were so over it we couldn't even enjoy the food. The food also lacked flavor and freshness. At one point in the evening we looked around all the tables and no one was eating, and there wasn't one person on the wait staff on the floor. The waiter decided to make an appearance at the end when he came to deliver the check, I had to ask for more water as my glass had been empty for the 30 minutes we ate. Needless to say the water came promptly 10 minutes later.
Bombay was extremely disappointing especially since the decor is pretty amazing.
I would never go back there again!

New and improved dining experience, but poor service. Long waits, unless you have a reservation. Food is dry and average, not the best Indian food in San Diego. Also, not cheap. Consider other places in the area with better service and food.

Lots of tasty Indian food here, and we've greatly enjoyed their vegetarian options. As noted before they have excellent pakoras, and be aware that their appetizers can be very generously sized. If you order some naan (and, really, why wouldn't you?) I'd recommend their garlic naan which is delicious and well balanced (often overly garlic at other places).

Be aware that this is a bit upscale/trendy, I think most entrees are in the range of $15. Worth it if your budget allows, but if you're looking for cheap curry then look elsewhere.

I have only been there during weekday evenings, but the service was consistently good. Pleasant staff who pay attention and can provide tasty suggestions. We did stop by on a Friday evening once, but the wait was about an hour so we moved on.

Please note that they moved across the street from the location listed above (now 3960 Fifth Ave).

PROS: Food and service
CONS: Hillcrest parking, worth getting a reservation on weekends

Cons: very small cannot take large groups here

We love Inidan food and this is one of our favorite places to get it. They give you an option of how spicey you want your food. The service is courteous and accommodating. I especially like their palaak paneer, samosas, and pakoras. I wish they offered something more by way of sweets but their kulfi and kheer are quite delicious. It can be crowded here at times and sometimes there is a short wait for a table, especially during the holiday season and on weekend evenings. You will most likely have to park in the lot just a few steps away. BE SURE to get your parking stub validated at the restaurant so that you don't have to pay for parking!

PROS: Fantastic food and service
CONS: crowded at times

The puri and palaak paneer are the best I've had. The naan is pretty delicous too. The maater paneer is awesome. The decor is warm and welcoming and the staff is friendly. The prices are reasonable and the restaurant seems quite clean. The samosas and pakoras and delicious! Parking is a hassle but you can pay to park in a lot nearby. Get your reciept validated at the restaurant.

Bombay is one of two places to get Indian food in Hillcrest. At first glance, its location seems extremely small...and it is. It howeve leads an intimate feel to the setting, and one can see several couples on dates at the restaurant. The garlic nan ($3) is delicious, as is all of their curries. Do not get their appetizer sampler unless you plan on eating a giant plate of fried food. Indian food in San Diego however is not cheap and a curry will set you back about $15. A good option is to get the buffet. For $15, you are able to get an assortment of all-you-can-eat curries, unlimited nan, and mango mousse dessert.

PROS: Good food, nice ambience
CONS: Too expensive for curry
