After the success of Bombay Bistro’s first location in Rockville, Maryland, chef K.N. Vinod and partner Surfy Rahman opened the Fairfax eatery in 1995. Like their first restaurant, the new location continues to serve fine Indian cuisine in a setting complete with Indian artifacts and warm colors. Savory dishes such as tandoori salmon and lamb vindaloo have attracted guests such as Madeleine Albright and visiting ministers from India, while a daily buffet attracts rumbling bellies.
