Lives up to the hype!

You can believe all the 5-star reviews. The food will blow you away. The fresh sodas will delight with every sip. The friendly and welcoming environment will warm your heart. I’ve tried 9 things so far – every one of them simply fantastic.

Pros: Lots of frozen items & desserts ready to go!

Delicious, Exceeded taste expectation and Great Service

We had the Falafel bowl, the Chikn Tikka bowl, some Naan bread as a side and the pumpkin shake. We try not to do oils or sugar and the bowls are cooked with oil but we knew that when we ordered. Absolutely delicious! The chickn tasted so buttery and was moist. The rice was so good as well. The spices were just right. The shake was very good with a great pumpkin flavor. We will be back.

Vegan Indian fusion food

What a lifesaver. And delish too. Was traveling to St. Louis and the hotel had nothing I really wanted to eat. Bombay Food Junkies was just two miles away and was so good I went two nights in a row. The milkshakes are epic. Everything I ate was delicious and made me so happy. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

An absolute treat

I've sampled a bunch of the menu, including the drinks and Oatly soft serve, and it's all delicious. But the chipotle "shrimp" tacos have my heart.

We love it here

This is our favorite Grubhub restaurant. Since it’s hard for us to go in because we are always working. We had almost everything on the menu. My favorites are the vegan fried shrimp and the Vada Pav.

This is my spot

I loved this place before I was vegan, and then I went vegan and they added ice creams. Hopefully that’s self-explanatory, but in case you need specifics I’ve tried most of the dishes and they pretty much all hit. My non veg 9yo liked the chickn wings more than normal chicken nuggets!

Pros: Fully vegan, Sells to go meals and desserts

So delicious! Our group got the Chick’n Tikka bowl and wrap, Butter Chick’n bowl, Gobi bowl, tofu bowl, a couple of the burgers, and a few different milkshakes. All of it was absolutely fantastic. We aren’t from St. Louis but plan to come here again for sure!

Vegan Indian Food!!! (And more)

If I lived closer it would be tempting to go here at least once a week. Everything was so so delicious. My favorite were the wings with mango habenero sauce, I was licking the sauce from the bowl. I love the vegan messaging, the commitment to the environment, and the very friendly people working there. It's seriously such a gem. The place was popping off when I was there - which made me happy but it was very busy!

Pros: All vegan!, Wide variety of selection, Commitment to veganism is superb

We've now dined in three or four times, and it's equally delicious. This is now one of our favorites!

This place is so good, I got the butter chicken and the tikka and both were great. I got the tikka with noodles and it was a nice addition instead of rice!
The staff are also really friendly and helpful, one of the ladies came over to my table and asked how everything was and seemed like she genuinely wanted to know what we thought, for a more fast-paced and takeout oriented place this was such a nice touch!!!

Pros: Fully vegan, Clean ingredients , Friendly staff

Cons: Not in a great location

Favorite Restaurant (period)

Bombay Food Junkies is my absolute favorite restaurant, ever. I probably visit on average at least once a week 😂 … I’m also probably bias at this point because Sid and Krupa are basically our friends for how frequently they see our faces. My favorites to order are the Chik’n Tikka Naanwich with masala fries, Chik’n Tikka Bowl with brown rice & quinoa, and the Butter Chik’n Bowl with cilantro fried rice, and, of course, Dahi Papdi Chaat! The Mango milkshakes are also heavenly and we have ordered a mango ice cream cake for my birthday the last 2 years. We also love going to their special 4-course menu events such as Valentine’s Day & Thanksgiving 💖 Cannot recommend this place enough! They are a top-rated STL restaurant for a reason!

Pros: 100% fully plant based / vegan, Big on sustainability - compost focused , Wonderful staff - Sid & Krupa

The sauces!!!

Great stuff. Chikin sando and some chikin… wings(?) were on the menu for me today. I guess I was in the mood for chikin. All great. Came with a side of masala fries too. Wished there was a little more spice involved there but overall still very tasty. I ended up with a lot of sauces and they were all incredible. Mango habanero sauce on the chikin… chunks(?) was so good. Got a side of veg ranch too, which was great. Spicy sauce on the sando was so on point! I love saaaaaaaaaaaaaauce!!!

The adtual space is great with a mural on the wall and a lot of nice uplifting vegan messages. 10/10. Will probably eat here again tomorrow.

Pros: Chikin sando is money, Space is cute and fun, I want them to spray their sauce all over my face

Cons: Some plastic packaging involved, Chairs not super comfy

I tried this place a few years ago when it was a food truck, and I was so excited to find out it's now a full restaurant! I ordered takeout today and it was just as delicious as I remembered. The tikka masala with cilantro rice was super flavorful, and I loved the vegan mango lassi! I can't wait to try the rest of the menu!

Excellent Indian Street food

We stumbled upon this establishment during a recent adventure into the St. Louis region. The restaurant is proudly Vegan. The food was fantastic. We enjoyed the Samosas and Hakkan Fried Noodles, The spice was pitch perfect. They also serve Oatly soft-serve. Very fun experience, we will be back.

Pros: Everything on the menu is Vegan, The joint is a living representation of Ahimsa
