“Best power lunch”
Tom Sietsema, Washington Post August 2011

“More glamorous than ever after a nip and tuck last year. The menu reminds patrons that there’s more to Indian cuisine than samosas and curries”
by Tom Sietsema in Gourmet, October 2009

“The restaurant is a harmonious cross-cultural enclave that has endured for two decades by offering inventive Indian fare at the epicenter of Washingtonian power, punctuated by British colonial charm.”
Washington Diplomat, 2009

“The Bombay Club has always been a civilized place to eat. A revamp of the dining room and a burst of energy in the kitchen have pushed the restaurant to a different playing field”
by Tom Sietsema – Washington Post 2009

As noted by CNN November 2008, “We dished with Sally [Quinn] over lunch at The Bombay Club. It was a stones throw from the White House. Great for power lunch.”

“The brunch buffet at Bombay Club includes an impressive selection of items with freshly baked naan served tableside for just $35.  We began with the starters and piled on various salads and chutneys along with a sweet potato chaat. I naturally gravitate to the spicy red onion chutney and cucumber raita, both of which did not disappoint.” in Bitches Who Brunch

Ashok Bajaj’s Bombay Club is one of those old school DC restaurants that has been a favorite among politicians for ages. But unlike some of the city’s classic steakhouses, you won’t find a dated menu or indifferent service at Bombay Club. The restaurant serves up a stellar brunch buffet, properly made Manhattans and traditional Indian fare such as lamb roganjosh. The thali platters are a good way to sample a variety of dishes. And there’s even a piano player in the evening.  in Eater
