The term Bollywood refers to the Hindi language film industry based in the city of Mumbai, formerly called Bombay. So, the word "Bollywood" is a combination of Bombay and Hollywood. The Bollywood Bistro has modern decoration with photos of Indian movie stars on the walls. Bollywood music plays in the background.
The restaurant offers traditional Indian meat and vegetarian dishes.
Mango Lassi is a thick shake made from fruit and yogurt.
The lamb biryani, which is like a rice pilaf, was slightly more spicy than I expected, but it was good. It was a large serving, and I had some leftover for carry out.
Rogan Josh is a curry with tender lamb, pungent spices and yogurt. The entrée was served with a side dish of basmati rice.
The freshly baked garlic naan is served with yogurt sauce.
Overall, the Bollywood Bistro provided a good dining experience which is worth repeating.
