Excellent food and great service

We first visited this restaurant about a year ago on a voucher deal and we have been regular ever since (1-2 times a month) We have visited many indians and this is one of the best. We have never been to another indian ever since our visit to Bombay spice and we have never had a bad dish! Cheers... read more

Bombay spice is located in the heart of Clifton, with free parking local. Food is of good standard for Indian, (recommend the dopiaza). Service is friendly albeit not very fast - (why the lost Mark). We had a Taste card which made the bill £13.25 each which includes 2 drinks, starters and main!!! Amazing value for money.

The stair carpet leading to the upstairs restaurant was disgustingly filthy, and the under table cloth had not been changed for months by the look of it.

I took a party of 5 business colleagues here for a quick meal. The place was empty on a Wednesday evening and to be honest I was rather taken aback by the smell on entering. It smelled as if the drains needed a good clean etc. Food was ok and service fine but atmosphere was pretty poor. Think this place... More

We came here with a living social voucher so had a slightly limited menu to choose from. I had the butter chicken for a main course and it was delicious! The starters and sides were all really good. It was a Monday night so really quiet, this meant service was fast and food was steaming hot. Would definitely go back.

I have been coming here for many years, it is the 1st choice of Indian restaurant whether it be with my friends, partner or family - no questions asked if we're going for an Indian we are going to Bombay spice! I can not fault it! Having been to many others this delivers everything I want in a curry 1)... More

I would not have gone out of my way to visit this restaurant if it had not been on offer via Table Pouncer (50% off food), but I could easily become a regular if I lived in Clifton Village. Centrally placed and inoffensively decorated, my party of five had a relaxing and tasty dinner, with drinks (four pints of beer,... More

I have visited this restaurant on two occasions, the first was with my Mum (we had a Groupon deal) and we found the food to be excellent but the service was lacking. We felt compelled to rush and also fell foul of the 'two courses starter and main but no side' which various customers have experienced on here. The second... More
